In an interview with NYLON magazine Ms. Stewart had this to say about Twilight fans:
Anywhere we’d go for Twilight was a psychotic situation. The sound was deafening, and it’s thoughtless, as well…You get a slew of all these bullshit questions like, ‘What’s it like to kiss a vampire?’ and ‘How much do you love Robert?’ Then you’ll get one that’s actually real, but you’re like, ‘No, I can’t right now, I can’t even consider [it].
Despite this clear diss of her fanbase, some are already trying to spin her comments.
Lisa Gornstein on the website The Answer B!tch had this to say:
Sure, casting director Bonnie Gillespie tells me, some studio publicist may give the whining actress a “hand-slapping” after seeing a quote like that, but most Hollywood players know that when the talent complains, it’s really more about business. And more often than not, the producers hear the call and give the actors something, like, say, dollars, to shut them up. And then everyone goes back to their emerald palaces or wherever it is that they live.
But fans don’t seem to be buying it. And the net is bouncing with “spoiled actress” rants.
Ah, the pitfalls of being young and successful in Hollywood.
From Ria Novsti:
KEMEROVO, February 19 (RIA Novosti) – A group of people led by the Russian Orthodox Bishop of Kemerovo and a regional official set out on Thursday in search of a bigfoot sighted in the Tashtagol area by hunters, a regional spokesman said.
Earlier this week, the Kemerovo regional administration released a report that local hunters had spotted “some hairy humanoid creatures with a height of 1.5-2 meters [5'6"-6']” near the Azass Cave on Mount Shoriya. The report was illustrated with a photograph from inside the cave showing the track of an unidentified creature.
“From the nearest village of Ust-Kabyrz, the bishop, regional head and a group of others will reach the Azass Cave by the only transportation possible: snowmobiles,” the spokesman told RIA Novosti.
He added that the priest would also make a private visit to Mount Shoriya, where he will open and bless a small church at a gulag barracks open to tourists. In the Soviet era, there were a large number of gulag camps in the area northeast of Novosibirsk.
According to the head of the department of anthropology at the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology in Moscow, anthropologists have never seen or studied the body of a bigfoot or yeti, although there are numerous reports of their sightings throughout the world.
He also noted that yetis for some reason are always spotted singularly, which is “biological nonsense,” as a large population must exist in order to create generation after generation. According to the anthropologist, Earth has been studied so thoroughly that if a population of yeti existed it would have been confirmed.
The Kemerovo regional spokesman said a scientific expedition is being organized for the summer to investigate the sighting. The financial details of the expedition are being worked out and there are already many enthusiasts, businessmen and hunters ready to help.
Bronson Pelletier, an actor best known for his appearances on the Canadaian TV show “Renegadepress” and Discovery Kids’ “Dinosapien,” has been cast in New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. Both based on Stephenie Meyer’s popular series of novels about teen vampires.
Pelletier’s role in the sequel has not been announced. But, due to his Native American heritage, many Twilight fans believe he will play one of the werewolves of the Quileute tribe.
Rumors swirl about the possible casting of Dakota Fanning, Vanessa Hudgens, AnnaLynne McCord and Lucy Hale in the sequel. But none of these actresses have been confirmed.

From the Examiner:
Witnesses are reporting UFO activity near U.S. military bases in Arizona and Texas this week. The Texas incident lit up both the sky and the ground as a glowing light moved toward the ground. Fighter jets were reported to have chased “two intense red lights” in Arizona.
In a neighborhood bordering Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, witnesses saw a bright white object light up the sky and yard where they were standing in the early morning hours of Feb. 22.
“I noticed that this light had a somewhat definite geometric shape,” one witness said. “It was square with pointed corners. The edges of the square were slightly concave, just a slight bend which didn’t make it look like a traditional square.”
The glowing and silent object, he said, was spinning as it moved toward the ground, and seemed to reach the rooftop levels of nearby structures.
In a second case on Feb. 23 near Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, a witness described two pulsating, bright lights that were stationary in the sky. After five minutes, one of the lights went out and was replaced by four or five new lights. As five “fighter jets” moved toward the lights, the lights “blinked off.” The witness said that the jets seemed to be chasing the light.
Following is the unedited account of the Texas incident from the Mutual UFO Network database. The unedited Arizona account follows.
From Ugandan webstite The New Vision:
Kitgum district leaders have temporarily closed Layamo Agwata Primary School in Palabek-Gem sub-county after pupils turned violent.
School authorities claim the children were possessed by ghosts of persons killed during the LRA insurgency. The chairman, John Ogwok, said the ghosts have been strangling pupils.
Ogwok added that religious and political leaders who went to conduct prayers in the school on Saturday, fled when they were attacked by ghosts.
The school and district leaders agreed to close the school for two weeks to conduct more prayers and rituals.
There are plans to exhume the remains in a mass grave near the school for reburial. “We shall negotiate with the religious leaders to allow the elders to conduct rituals to chase away the ghosts,” Ogwok said.
Religious leaders rejected earlier attempts by elders and parents to perform rituals at the school. The LC3 chairman, Johnson Patrick Olaa, said his office was investigating reports that the ghosts instructed their victims to get guns and axes to fight the rest of the children.
Those affected were tied with ropes and taken to hospital.
