Robert Pattinson Has a Plan B

Robert Pattinson Has a Plan B-photo

How hot are Robert Pattinson's acting prospects right now? The Twilight actor and tousle-haired changeling can actually consider a music career a back-up plan.

Pattinson—who sings under the name Spunk Ransom and contributed a song, "Never Think," to the Twilight soundtrack—tells the Los Angeles Times that he doesn't want to be seen as an actor using his big-screen career to push a music sideline.

"I've never really recorded anything—I just played in pubs and stuff—and I really didn't want it to look like I was trying to cash in," the pasty-faced heartthrob says. "I hope it doesn't come across as that. I’m not going to be doing any music videos or anything. Music is my backup plan if acting fails. I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket."

As for his inclusion on the Twilight soundtrack, Pattinson claims that he had nothing to do with it, stating that a third party passed on a copy of his tunes to director Catherine Hardwicke without his knowledge.

"When I went to see the [Twilight] cut," Pattinson recalls,"she’d put these two songs in. They’re old songs, but one of them specifically, it really made the scene better. It was like it was supposed to be there. It’s strange because what was supposed to be at that point in the movie was a big orchestral film climax. Instead it’s this little song with acoustic guitar. I’m singing it, maybe that makes it different, but it’s kind of overwhelming. I hope it’s overwhelming."

    People should stop telling Adam what to do or not do, how to behave etc. Stop judging him. I think he knows what to do and what he wants in life. He shows great wisdom even at this young age due to the years of struggle to come to this point of his life. Just enjoy his music, most of all his Voice !

    I dearly love Adams voice, but some of the overseas things he done is not very prefessional...I want him to win the grammy, but I hope that Adam remembers that he has a voice out of this world like Elvis did, but Elvis kept his ugly comments to himself.....Yes, he is very handsome, and he is gay, he won't let us forget that...who really wants to, but he is shoving it into our faces....Entertain Adam and don't ruin your career....I seen Elton John this year, he wasn't kissing a guy on stage..and he sang for 3 and half hours.....really beautiful voice, like you,not as good a voice really....you are a great entertainer but don't let it go to your head...want you to entertain for a long time.......

    Was a huge fan of Adam's until his true character came out. Don't know if you would call it a God given talent--if so, he should be ashame at how he is using it; If it is a dark given talent--he is using it correctly. His fan base will also be the ones from under rocks, the sick and perverted evil, and he will help lots of young people follow that path. OH! HOW AWFUL!

    Great talent, but his character has destroyed him for many. It is not because he is gay; but, because he is vulgar. I love beautiful music of all kinds; but, why do performers have to show such low class. Wanted him to win the AI, now I am glad he didn't. If his true character had been seen on AI, he would not have lasted as long as he did--regardless of his voice. Majority of people do not want to see such vulgar performances. He will attract the lowest of the low.

    I just think he is what he is. And does what he is. This is his signature!!!! There will be those who will love him, and there will be those who won t . but that is showbiz!!! Botttom line, he is an amazing entertainer, talented...the real thing.............if the whole world would of discovered him years age, and that performance on ama was given by him..........it would be talked about, but would actually make him a god.............unfortunatly people are short minded.

    I will never watch another music awards show I think Adam Lambert is sick and horrible entertainer. The awards show should be ashame.

    I am ever so impressed with Adam, but unfortunately, I live down here in Australia, and very few people (if any) have ever heard of him. I can't talk about him to anyone - but when I do get them to google him, they are astonished that someone like him has gone unnoticed for this long. If you are reading this Adam and have 30 seconds to spare, could you get your agent to email me and arrange to send me a t shirt or something to remind me of you. Love Wendy

    How do I go about getting an autograph picture of Adam Lambert! Like Him American Idol Cheated Me out of the three photos I was suppose to get . The guy said that if we download songs from Itunes that one week that we would get an autograph photo of the singer we wanted! I bought three downloads that night and still have the reciept for it and American Idol has given me the run around sending me to one person to another! Never giving me the photos promised! I was very upset about that . I am 58 yrs old for goodness sake I don't think that I should get a run around! dugh! I can't believe that they can advertise this on tv (and I did record and save it on my dvr !) and not deliver what they were selling! Thanks Brenda

    Adam is so refreshingly honest and enthusiastic about what he is doing. How could that not be appealing in this jaded world? Hope he never changes.

    Adam is awesome, no doubt, but all of you people are whackos. Get some therapy, seriously.

    I didnt realise CB did interviews with people. Can you try and get one with Rob Pattinson.

  • demonbarber
    demonbarber

    I'd rather he focus on acting too. To get to the very top in Hollywood take such dedication that its hard to fit in a musical career as well.

    Any chance that fans will be able to embed you tube videos on here when posting messages. For instance if chatting aboue Rob's performances it would be good to embed the acting clip or interview.

    Its time to focus on his acting so that he can become the top hollywood superstar. I dont want any distractions to stop that happening.

    He does not use Spunk Ransom to sing. And he will not need a plan B. Rob is just too modest. And I love the people who take the time to leave a comment positive/negative. Just giving him the PR. Can't stay away can you? haha
