What does Rob Pattinson have to do with Jason Gardiner?

Came across this lovely little article.

Some dancing on ice judge has words to say about Rob - for no reason except (what I assume is) to gain attention for himself and this silly show. What's the best way to get your name around right now? Link yourself to Rob Pattinson somehow - doesn't matter in what way, just somehow.

Blurb:

Jason Gardiner says Robert Pattinson is 'pathetic'
Dancing on ice judge Jason Gardiner has revealed that he would chose New Moon star Taylor Lautner over Robert Pattinson as his perfect dance partner.

Dancing on ice judge Jason Gardiner has revealed that he would chose New Moon star Taylor Lautner over Robert Pattinson as his perfect dance partner.

The acid-tongued Aussie said that he "doesn't understand" why people think that Pattinson is a sex symbol.

Jason told Now magazine that he has a crush on the "powerful" 17-year-old actor who plays Jacob Black in New Moon.

He said: "Taylor Lautner would be my ideal dance partner because he looks amazing.

"He's big and strong, enough to turn me on!"

However, the 38-year-old confessed that he could not understand why Robert Pattinson drew so much media attention.

He said: "I don't get the whole Robert Pattinson thing, he's pale, pasty and pathetic.

Jason added: "I want a man with a good complexion and a powerful body and he doesn't have either." (entertainment stv)


Is this true? I have no idea - no one over the age of 18 should be commenting on how a 17 year old gets them hot! That is just freakin' icky! Not to mention he is 38 years old saying that. I don't care about gay/straight whatever. But male or female - it's not cool to talk about how someone that is 21 years younger than you and underage - makes you hot.
(again, assuming this article isn't fabricated)

And why start pi$$ing all over Rob? Because Rob doesn't have the look HE is interested in, that makes Rob pathetic? Makes anyone pathetic?

This jackass is just trying to get his show that no one has ever heard of in the the spotlight by mentioning ROB PATTINSON.

Oh and apparently the newest feud reports, writers, pencil paparazzi, whatever you want to call them - are trying to conjure up is this (supposed) quote from Hugh Grant:

He said: "I haven't watched the second part yet of Twilight yet, but I understand the fascination with Robert. I think he's really sexy!" (tvnz)

Context, context, context.... we have no idea what was being said, about what etc. My guess is that is was just tongue and cheek. But now I'm seeing articles that have titles like:

Hugh Grant has a man crush on Rob Pattinson.

Once again... stick Rob's name in somewhere so you can get attention.

For example, someone is selling a vacuum and maybe the intro they could use would say something like this:

"Buy this new and improved Ultra Sucker vacuum! It has such a powerful suction, very similar to Edward's, Rob Pattinson's character in Twilight!"

Or this little icon - and I swear to God I did NOT make this - I found it online!

(Really??)


That's how silly things are getting.
