The Teen Choice Awards are happening this weekend, and of course Ashley Greene is up for "Best Scene Stealer" for her role as Alice Cullen in New Moon. In New Moon? Didn't that movie come out a decade ago? One would think that the TEEN Choice Awards would be a little more up-to-the-minute. They should be handing out awards via Twitter, putting down a red carpet on Facebook or whatever. But I guess the TCAs are content to do this the old fashioned way. Except there are no paper ballots. You can go on to their site and vote for Greene if you like, but I personally think we should protest the voting system the TCAs have in place: you can vote once a day. Once a day? Whatever happened to One Teen One Vote? I was not going to vote anyway because first of all, I am not a teen. Second of all: objectivity. But such a system does not reward the real consensus of American teens; it goes against the fundamental core of (teen) democracy. It rewards only the stars with the most obsessed fans. (So Ashley Greene will win, undoubtedly.)
I saw on someone's livejournal (because I am a JOURNALIST with wide-ranging SOURCES; livejournal is basically my Deep Throat) that apparently there was some kind of controversy the morning after last year's TCAs. From what I can piece together it seems to come from the subset of Twi-Hards who actively pull for Ashley Greene & Jackson Rathbone to get together in real life. It's not enough for them to see Alice & Jasper kissing onscreen, etc. - they literally want to know, in the back of their minds, that Greene & Rathbone are actively fucking in a real bed (or on a real table or whatever) somewhere in the world. I'm sorry that I don't totally understand that mentality, but I really don't. ANYWAY, it seems that around the time of the 2009 TCAs, Greene admitted to, or maybe joked about, having a crush on Rathbone. The Woodward & Bernsteins over at GossipTeen.com apparently don't feel the need to provide a lot of context for the quote. But that specific subset of Twi-Hards went wild with this rumor. But then Greene allegedly went and fucked someone named Chace Crawford, who to me looks like Zac Efron if he got hit in the forehead with a good-sized brick, the night of the awards. If you look at the comments for that article, well, people are very angry that she did not fuck Jackson Rathbone instead! I am of the opinion that Ashley Greene should be able to fuck whomever she wants, which I know, is pretty retro of me, but I just wanted to get that out there before the TCAs this weekend. Because we will undoubtedly be reading about who fucked whom on Monday.
