Shakira Admits Her Love For Twilight
And hints that she may have a crush on Robert Pattinson!
"I love Twilight," she told MTV News' Tim Kash. "I can't say what I love about Twilight."
"Does the first name begin with Robert and the second name end with Pattinson?" Kash wondered aloud.
"No, no, no," said the Colombian-born singer, bursting into laughter. "I'm too old. I can't say those things. I mean, how old is he — 23? 24? ... You are getting me in trouble!"
RPattz actually turns 24 next May. And for the record the 32-year-old Shakira didn't fall for the man behind Edward Cullen until after she'd written and recorded the first single off the new album She Wolf.
"And then the president of my label said, 'Have you checked out Twilight? It's about wolves and vampires and things,' " she said. "And I'm like, 'Ah, that's up my alley. I mean, where is it?' And I watched it and loved it."
But Shakira is a fan of all the big new fantasy movies and, if she had to pick, she'd side with Team Harry Potter over Team Edward. "I mean, 'Harry Potter' has been there for how many years?" she decided. "Pattinson just arrived."
That doesn't mean she wouldn't be interested in a little musical collaboration with RPattz, who plays guitar and piano and recorded vocals for two songs on the Twilight soundtrack.
"I've heard he's a great singer and a great musician," she said. "If those rumours are true — yeah, of course, why not?"
