if we were 16, this would be EARTH-SHATTERING from, like, an emotional standpoint.
no lie, there are kids who didn’t sleep last night because this news so rocked their world. (a fact that may be worth coming back to later re: the devastating impact of disillusionment with a celebrity upon an adolescent [hugh grant, i’m looking at you], but one which i’m going to ignore for now.)

but we’re not 16.
google “kristen stewart” and you can read about this elsewhere all day long. there are only two things i want to point out.
kristen stewart released a public apology.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
it speaks to the bizarreness of the twilight fan phenomenon that she would need to release a public apology. it speaks to how very powerful those fans are that her apology reads like it was written by bella swan.
