Robert Pattinson And Kristen Stewart Continue To Play Mind Games With Their Fans

We’re now a week away from the premiere of Breaking Dawn: If You Don’t Come To The Theater And Support It Robsten Will Be A Thing Of Your Distant Past and that means that the magicians behind this alleged publicity stunt are pulling off their best tricks now. Despite the supposed reunion of Robert Pattinson  and Kristen Stewart that we’ve heard about endlessly for a month or so now, the couple’s currently refusing to answer questions about whether or not they’re back together.

Yesterday Kristen Stewart made headlines for her refusal to address their relationship during an interview on The Today Show. 

Um… I’m just going to let people watch whatever little “movie” they would like to think our lives are and go for it, you know… Keep ‘em guessing, I always say.

And today her maybe-boyfriend Robert Pattinson did the same during his Today Show interview.

Guthrie then told him that Stewart said, ” ‘Keep ‘em guessing.’ ”

“Keep ‘em guessing?” he repeated, puzzled.

Guthrie said, “So, I’m going to ask you” meaning: Are they back together?

Pattinson chuckled nervously, “I want to ask, cuz we get asked it all the time, everyone always asks, like for four years. Who is actually asking? Is it in your contract?” he asked Guthrie.

I would assume that going to a Halloween party with the woman who publicly cheated with her director would be a sign that they’ve reconciled. But apparently not. That’s somehow still up in the air. So now all the Robsten fans who pledged their allegiance to this couple forever and ever just a few weeks ago must now suffer all over again. Is there no justice in this cruel, cruel world for fans of couples with conjoined names?

As I predicted months ago in my initial crazy-lady-rantings about this entire cheating scandal being a publicity stunt for Breaking Dawn, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are going to keep their fans guessing with an “are they” or “aren’t they” game until the final moments.

They’re together! They’re separated! They’re in love! They’re in hate!

The only thing that’s clear right now is that they’re keeping all the media attention focused on them. Every single interview they do leading up to this movie gets covered in approximately 4500 hundred outlets. Every quote they give gets analyzed over and over again until we step back and realize we’re giving a lot of meaning to Kristen Stewart saying “okay” in response to a question about her fragrance.

Sometimes an answer is just an answer. But because this entire publicity tour for the movie got overshadowed by Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert with Rupert Sanders, we’re suddenly much more invested in everything they say. EVERYTHING! Look at me, I’m just as caught up in this as anyone else. I’ve never even seen Twilight. But now, after months of this saga I feel like I’m just as interested in their relationship as the Robsten fans. So whether or not these mind games are purposeful and whether or not this is all some kind of publicity stunt, it doesn’t matter.

I’m now soaking up the drama as much as anyone else, in fact I might even go see the movie. Or least read the Wikipedia entry on it.

    Yes this whole situation is more aggrivating than trying to get gum off of your show. It’s really sad because so many people adored them and have no clue what to think of them now. The worst part is rob and Kristen don’t seem to care.

    • Jenni

      It’s all over in a week. Then it will start back up with the DVD release. And then it will really be over.

    • nena

      I still think that it is real, there was no cheating, no break up so no getting back together!! I think they make perfect sense what they have done. K has said “if we go ahead and say, will all this stop? No they will just want more and more, there is no end. So if it doesnt benefit me in any way why should I talk about it?” I think that is one reason they are still together, dont talk! Aft the movie and dvd they can be private people more

    • ss

      I get the whole privacy thing and why, because the whole world wants to know every detail about them being together. But in a way, them being so private, it comes across a little bit secretive, too secretive. Don’t understand why (KS) would say “my bf is english” or “my bf did this movie ” (Bel Ami) and everyone KNOWS RP was in that movie. But she can’t say my BF Rob. And idk if Rob has ever said anything in regards to, “my gf this…” or whatever to “his gf”. I mean just mentioning, naturally. Point being, seems like they play word games and/or skirt around the question, for years. Not 1 year, but 3 or so?? That is why, it’s strange and it gives people just another reason to doubt their relationship. It just brings more questions too, concerning the sincerity of their relationship. Maybe they not only in wanting to keep their privacy, maybe they like being “mysterious” as well…idk

    • nena

      He was asked once where is your GF is she here? And his answer was “in LA” something like this, I just respect their way of handling their relationshop

    • ss

      Yeah, but the reporter is the one who used the word “gf”. He just answered back. RP has never used the word GF himself, like KS said “my bf is english” comment. All I’m saying is that, it seems like they play “mind games” and even word games with the public about their relationship. Not like they owe anyone an answer. But I have to believe, they like the “mystery” that surrounds them, just a little. It also keeps people from getting “bored” with them. Keeps people interested. Hopefully, interested enough to see their upcoming movies….right?

    • nena

      I agree but if you can’t cry laugh. I would play games with the stupid media also!! They prob think of stupid answers to give the unprofessional media . Why not? They can’t control the media so why not have some fun and punk them? Doesn’t mean they don’t love each other and arnt in a relationship. They have clues all over from clothes, some words, jewelry just have to look

    • ss

      True… Actions speak louder than words? Hey, what’s going on over at GC?

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      And now the dogs!

  • ss

    What I wonder is after these two break up (after the dvd release) “officially”, I wonder how they are going to act when they are both in different relationships with new people? Meaning, are they not going to be as coy and “private” with their new relationship? Say if a reporter asks if they have them about their new gf/bf, will they be more open about it. Or will they just shut the reporter down and say something generic as, “I don’t talk about my personal life”, or deflect the question.

    I understand, them wanting to be private. Maybe that’s why their relationship lasted so long, idk. I believe it’s real (their relationship), but I just don’t buy this “love story” or that their relationship was as serious as people might think. It’s HW, cmon. But it must be annoying and tiring to not be “able” just to say, “yeah my GF this…” or my “BF that…” or whatever. But hey, I couldn’t relate because the only people who ask about my relationship is my parents! Lol And not a bunch reporters. I also don’t have millions of people constantly scrutinizing my relationship or obsessing over it either lol.

  • Robstensickness

    I don’t know what to say when it comes to Rob and Kristen anymore, but if they don’t take the mystery out their situation soon, they aren’t going to have many fans left after this final movie comes out, along with the DVD. But, then again, maybe that’s exactly what they want because, quite frankly, they don’t seem to care. PR Stunt or not, their relationship has beome the black sheep of hollywood relationships. Worse than Brad Pitt and Angelina whats-her-face. God, I can’t believe I just said that. I don’t know why they insist on playing mind games with their fans because it really is not fair…to anyone. If this is their “revenge” to the fans for what the media comes out with, then, they’ve got it all wrong. I understand the whole “We like our privacy” sort of thing, I really do, but I’ve never seen a celebrity couple try to hide their relationship as much as these two do. Seeing them two together as a couple again after Kristen’s–I believe to be international cheating scandal is just really bizarre, and it’s definitely not the same as it used to be. I just wonder how long it is going to last this time around…

    • nena

      I don’t understand why you said any of this! Do people ask other celebs ALL the time who they are seeing or to elaborate on their relationships? If fans like their work because of their relationship then they prob want to get rid of them. It is none of anyone’s business!! They don’t owe anyone any info!! Savanna G should be thankful that her personal life wasn’t brought up. She wouldn’t want to be asked about it at all. I really can’t believe people feel they are entitled to know their personal life. Or would not be a fan unless they come clean. Get over it!

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      They don’t ask other celebs like this because they “confess” willingly. Joli has taken it to a high art. Kristen parodied it in her Vogue interview on “armpits”. It is NORMAL for people to openly confess everything: abuse; childhood rape; ex-husband story; ex-wife story; etc. They just vomit it all out. Rob and Kristen keep it as tight as proper analysts do. And because they don’t act NORMAL and blab it, they are not questioned, they are INTERROGATED. This is the Inquisition honey. confession is to be extracted since it is not willingly divulged. Did we really need to know all about “cum on a blue dress” or blow jobs in the oval office? Of course not, but the stage has been set for a tabloid world. It’s here.

      The question now is WHAT IS IT COVERING UP? It is a DETERRENCE, but a deterrence covering up what? The fact that there is no news, empty news of no importance?

    • nena

      Ha I just read this on J for K site!! Your right! It’s one of the reasons I was impressed with them from the beginning. People are stupid

      Hey Janet: Im replying to you on the Crush board because I didn’t want to repeat this on GC the other day. RE: the Hotlinks disc: The info I gleamed originates from TC, therefore it is probably just BS. Do you remember when Kris was injured on the set of SWATH and had to be rushed to the Hospital? I seem to remember that Rob went rushing over there. TC said no one would discuss it ( it might not have been that bad). He is saying the fake pics and scandal has to do this incident, and that there were other injuries????? What? He believes that R&K were in on it to get her out of a sequel with RS. With Kris’ SWATH II statement that GC has published 2 days in a row, TC’s relevations are at least interesting, and something we never considered. I believe K said what she had to say, and she did not say that she would be in a sequel. The haters are rabid and having a field day on that board. I saw it yesterday, just lurked because I have had the stomach virus and am writing now. I just wanted to get back to you. Have a great day. Later.

    • ss

      I seen that board…..smh. I left. I went to see what was being said over there, and all I seen was a bunch of posters hating on KS. It STILL amazes me, how much people really despise this girl. It’s scary. Reading all those nasty comments about her, I feel bad for her. Definitely not going to check out GC, for awhile

    • lillicat

      It was litterally making me ill. Sometimes I think those people are similar to crank callers, just saying as many hateful things to get the fans who care about them (R&K) stirred up. I can count on my friend Abbeysbooks to remind me that I’m just fueling the flame with those jerks when I start defending them. Next we will have the fallout from the NYTimes article from the party they attended last night after Fallon and the OTR showing. Just wait….GC seems to be trying to get a crendscendo of hate going against Kris right before the LA Premiere.

    • ss

      What happened at that party? I read US weekly, they have a story there about KS was ready to leave the party, but RP wasn’t. Supposely, before she would get her way, when she would want to leave and,RP would leave when she wanted to. This time no. She left when RP was ready to go. The artticle used the word “petulant” in describing how KS was acting (I believe that was the word). I just skimmed through the article pretty fast, so I could be wrong.

      Hey, I posted a comment about another stupid story Perez H has. Have you read anything about that? I know its not true, what’s it’s interestiis that now there is stories coming out about KS being “cold” to him. Crazy.smh

      Isn’t today the BD2 premiere? The week of scruitinzing their body language, what they said and more is to come….going to be interesting.

    • lillicat

      ss: I’m answering you in short form because I’m writing an article ( and it sucks right now). I’ve seen the twitter instagrams, and read the riciculous NY Daily News article. This story has been respun by “umpteen” gossip sites by the taglines to now say that it was Rob’s friends sending the tweets to the NYDN. (1)These people were across the room and were not friends, believe me. Knowing how protective Bobby, Tom, Sam, and Marcus are of Rob- you know as well as I that no real friend of Rob’s would do this. (2) Knowing K’s antenae for people watching and texting about her and R; my first thoughts are that she knew they were being stalked and toned him down as not to have their PDA plastered all over the gossip sites. Rob was there before Kris and had already had a few- maybe he didn’t notice these jerks. (3) They left the Beatrice and moved onto the Electric Room(?). The instagrams I saw from there had them being gentle and sweet with one another, then they arrived back at the hotel together, and that was documented. (4) The NYDN has totally proved itself to be a rag in my opinion by publishing this story. The story was never documented, and how did the author of the story know these people weren’t just haters. Hello! I say “whatever”. (5)I got my proof tonoght at the LA Premiere when I saw Kristen’s Dad and Mom hugging Rob’s sisters and parents, and if you can get past that gorgeous green on green suit Rob was wearing- you will see Kris’ fushia lipstick smudged on his lips!!!! AND she rubbed his back in the pictures. They were so gorgeous together. I just wish these people could just leave them be.

    • ss

      Okay. I didn’t see the live stream…. I didn’t want to watch. I was nervous, for KS. I read (people comments from HW lifes boards) that rp and KS interactions were really awkward. As well as “people”(not sure who’s people) kept or made sure to keep them apart on the rc. Also that, rp seemed like he didn’t want to be around her. Lastly, that RP sisters were seperating RP and KS. That his sisters kep walking in front of KS? Not sure how that’s rude or mean. Basically, people were saying that his sisters were obvious, with there feelings toward KS on the RC. Just telling you, what people were saying. I read all that and zi felt soo bad for KS. Thats why I didn’t want to know. But I came on crushable to see if anyone mentioned anything about. You know, some clear headed posters, to tell what was really going on. Not just some biased account.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      The NYDN has been a rag sheet for forever. Just click on it to see the layout. That is the give away. Anything that loads like that has got to be tabloid fare. Pop up ads, and all that shit. It tells you they are selling stuff. If they are selling stuff AT YOU then they are making money from your clicks. How can you believe them when they speak with forked tongues.

    • Petranella

      There were several eyewitness accounts that night–very different from this “report”

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      This is the problem with Simulated Reality which we are in right this minute while I am typing and you are reading. No one can really know. Eyewitness reports are “sources” to someone else, not perhaps someone you know would be telling the truth. Anyone can read this the way they want, then write it so it comes out in print and be believed by those who believe just because it is out there in print. Until this gets firmly ingrained in people’s minds, they are going to dispute back and forth what did or did not happen, why it did or did not happen, etc. And as long as they can print this crap, sell it, get people to dispute it, get hits for that or sell papers for it, they are going to keep on and on and on. It’s why I don’t read it and if I happen across something like this I trash it in my mind. Why would I want to keep it and think about it and dispute its accuracy when I already know it isn’t accurate. I know I can’t change anyone’s mind if they think it is. It’s the “flat earth” the heliocentric theory on a micro level. WTF!

      Whatever happened has nothing to do with whether they love each other, are or are not a couple, want public PDA or don’t want public PDA, it just has nothing to do with them. At that moment they are in public and that fact influences the way they are with each other, not the way they are with each other when they are not in public. Unless they act in public exactly the way they act in private and then there is no difference. Diogenes the Greek philosopher said that it was important to do everything in public that you did in privacy. So he ate, shat, peed, fucked, etc in the public marketplace for all to see. That’s one way of looking at it!

    • Petranella

      well you are absolutely correct. And despite public pressure to do so–I knew that they were not going to “perform” a kiss last night.

      If it keeps on let me know and I’ll ask how you can detect.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Please don’t spend any time on this. I am not saying it is not true or true. It is just not important. It doesn’t matter at all. If it came from TC just disregard it. Sometimes he will be right, and sometimes you will hit the bull’s eye.

    • lillicat

      I know this about TC. That’s why the more I thought about it- the more it seemed unimportant. It was the injury thing and the mystery surrounding it that alarmed me.

      He will constantly make mountains out of molehills. the celebrity gossip places are all giving way to twitter. Have you noticed the more savvy of them promote on twitter. Rose at intoxication does. robsessed doesn’t know how. If I do I get more hits than I ever did going on the boards, finding people who liked what I wrote, making friends. It’s just so much faster on twitter. You find someone you like and retweet and before long you are following each other. It’s not the same. You don’t develop the depth that you can on the boards, but you can hot link without moderation and spread ideas really fast. Occupy for example is doing great things in New Jersey. Just unbelievably wonderful and radical.

  • Robstensickness

    It’s come to the question of whether or not fans are going to continue to love them, or ditch them entirely, and that’s not hard to see. I’m sure they’ll keep many fans, but, in the end lose a lot more. Which would really bring his career downhill, and fast. As for Kristen, I don’t know how much of a “career” she has left. I don’t work for the industry. Obviously.

  • ss

    So Perez H, has a story up about how KS, was not letting RP be affectionate with her at that birthday party in NY. As well as he tried kissing her, but she told “don’t kiss me”. Supposely there were several “sources” saying this. I already know Perez got the story from someone, but who? Again, I know not believe the story, and what not. But anyone else heard this story?
