Robert Pattinson Says He’ll Be More Popular When He’s Dead

By: / October 25, 2010

Robert Pattinson might be considered the hottest man alive by his army of fans, but the way the actor himself sees it, he might be better off dead. Or, at least, his work might be.

The 24-year-old Twilight stud, who dabbles in music when he isn’t busy making hearts flutter as sexy vampire Edward Cullen, reckons that the songwriting side of his oeuvre won’t get its due until he’s been planted six feet under:

“I am sure I’ll be one of those artists that people don’t pay any attention to while I’m alive, and when I am dead people will go yeah, man, that was a work of art…I see myself playing in a rundown blues bar, with about three people drowning their sorrows. I play according to my mood, and sometimes that can come across as very depressing in music.”

Nice to know that R-Pattz has a healthy perspective on the appeal of his music. The only question is, can the perpetually undead ever really hope to achieve posthumous acclaim? 

Do you think Rob’s music will be appreciated in his lifetime? Let us know in the comments section, after checking out his song “Never Think” from the Twilight soundtrack below:
