Robert Pattinson Relishes Kristen Stewart’s Contact-Lens Discomfort

Stewart didn't understand why her co-star complained about his 'Twilight' vampire contacts until she had to wear her own.

Aside from ending what has been roughly five years of hard work and incredibly pale skin, "Breaking Dawn" brought a different type of satisfaction to Robert Pattinson. The end of the "Twilight Saga" meant that his co-star Kristen Stewart would finally understand the pain he's had to endure the entire time they've spent shooting the films.

It's not a great spoiler to say that Stewart's Bella will become a bloodthirsty, red-eyed vampire at some point during the two-part finale, whose first installment opens on November 18. This has been a long time coming for Bella, the fans and, it turns out, Pattinson.

Getting into character meant a change of eye color for Stewart and some vindication for her co-star. In the nicest way possible, Pattinson explained to MTV News' Josh Horowitz that knowing Stewart would have to experience the discomfort of his vampire contact lenses was "a great feeling."

Stewart had her own set of contacts to wear as the human version of Bella to turn her eyes brown, but those apparently did not hurt, unlike the gold contacts that Pattinson had worn since the beginning of the series. "She's like, 'I wear contact lenses. Why do you always complain about yours?' " Pattinson said.

When Stewart finally did change into her vampire eyes, Pattinson got what he had been waiting for. "When she finally wore them and then was complaining about them every second of the day," he admitted, "it was kind of satisfying."

Freddie Gibbs Charged With Sexual Assault in Austria

Two-and-a-half months after Freddie Gibbs was arrested in France stemming from an alleged sexual assault that occurred in Vienna, Austria in July 2015, the rapper has formally been charged in the incident.

A spokesperson for the Vienna criminal court confirmed the charges of "sexual abuse of a defenseless or psychologically impaired person" Wednesday. "[Gibbs] is alleged to have administered knock-out drops to a woman and then have abused her sexually while she was in a defenseless state," the spokesperson said in a statement, accusing the rapper of spiking a woman's drink, Metro US reports.

Gibbs could face 10 years in prison if convicted of the charges. Gibbs' Austrian-based lawyer Thomas Kralik denied that the rapper had any sexual contact with the alleged victim. "He strenuously denies [the accusations]," Kralik said. 

Gibbs' U.S. lawyer Theodore Simon added in an email statement to Rolling Stone, "While Freddie Gibbs was charged with an offense today, it remains only an allegation, and it does not in any way change the actual facts that Freddie Gibbs is 100 percent innocent ... As the investigation and process continues, Mr. Gibbs remains hopeful that a thorough, searching and complete investigation will reveal the actual facts, including the absence of any scientific, physical, or credible evidence implicating him, thereby paving the way for his exoneration and return to his family and one-year-old child."

At the time of Gibbs' arrest in Toulouse, France in June, the rapper's lawyer told Rolling Stone in a statement, "Freddie Gibbs adamantly denies the allegations that have been levied against by Austrian authorities. It makes you wonder why it took almost a year for Austrian officials to bring these charges. Freddie will be fighting the extradition request as these are nothing more than trumped up charges."

Gibbs was scheduled to perform in Vienna on May 26th but the concert was cancelled due to "transportation issues." A European arrest warrant was issued for Gibbs days later.

Alice Cooper Breaks Silence on Joe Perry Collapse

Alice Cooper vividly remembers the shock he felt when he learned that Joe Perry had collapsed onstage mid-song during a Hollywood Vampires concert in Brooklyn. "It scared the hell out of me," he tells Rolling Stone. "The lyrics to ['Raise the Dead'], the first song we played that night, go, 'Cardiac, heart attack … they never feared the reaper,' and I look around the stage and he's gone. He was lying behind an amp on his back, and I went, 'Oh, my God.' We didn't know what happened until after the show."

The causes, he learned, were dehydration and exhaustion. "Aerosmith does two shows a week, but we were on our eighth show in nine days, and I'm used to working like that," the singer says. "I'm used to working an hour and 40 minutes or two hours, five nights a week. I was in shape and so was Johnny and everybody else. I think Joe was not ready for that kind of pace.

"We were doing 25 to 30 songs with no break," he continues. "You're in fourth gear, and there's no 24-hour resting period. I think it just caught up with him. He finally got up there onstage, dehydrated. And I think he was exhausted. He told me the night before he hadn't eaten in two days."

When asked why Perry hadn't been eating, Cooper says, "I said, 'Man, you've got to know when to sleep. You've got to know when to eat on a tour.' I think it just finally got to him. It was not a heart attack; it was pure exhaustion. They checked his heart and said his heart was actually very strong."



It took two weeks for Perry to recover and reunite with the Vampires at a Bay Area gig. "I've never seen him play so good," Cooper says. "He looked great and he played great for the next few shows."

As for the Brooklyn date and the ones Perry missed, Cooper says he was happy to see the other guitarists in the group step up. "Johnny [Depp] took over on lead guitar and so did Tommy Henriksen, who plays guitar in my band," he says. "They just took all of his guitar parts and split 'em up. The show went on and it sounded great. It was great to hear that Johnny could jump in and fill in for all those lead parts."

Perry's Aerosmith bandmate Steven Tyler expressed concern for the guitarist during his recovery, as no one from the guitarist's camp was contacting the singer with updates. "It's starting to scare me a little bit," Tyler told Billboard a few days after the collapse. He added: "I know my brother. … He's always asking me to do three, four [Aerosmith] shows in a row, and I can't. I'll blow my voice out. I know how to maintain my career, my health and Joe's passionate. I don't think he knows how to. I think he's out there and someone's overbooking him."

At the conclusion of the Hollywood Vampires tour, Cooper launched a run of solo dates – dubbed "Spend a Night With Alice Cooper" – that will run through late October. He has also cheekily announced his candidacy for president, releasing a new version of his 1972 hit "Elected." He recently shared his thoughts on the current election – as well as G.O.P. nominee Donald Trump's golf courses – in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

Flashback: Leonard Cohen Performs ‘So Long Marianne’ in 1979

Shortly before Leonard Cohen's 1960s-era muse Marianne Ihlen died from leukemia late last month, he sent her a very touching letter. "Well Marianne, it's come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon," he wrote. "Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and for your wisdom, but I don't need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road."

Cohen and Ihlen split decades ago and haven't had much contact since, but they lived together for nearly a decade after meeting on the Greek island of Hydra in the 1960s. She inspired some of his greatest love songs, including "So Long Marianne" and "Bird on a Wire." Here's video of him performing "So Long Marianne" on German TV on October 31st, 1979. He was in the early stages of his Smokey Life tour, which took him all over the world in support of his LP Recent Songs. His backing group included bassist Roscoe Beck and backup singers Jennifer Warnes and Sharon Robinson. He'd work with all three of them for decades to come.

Cohen has kept a very low profile since his Grand Tour wrapped in Auckland, New Zealand on December 21st, 2013. He did celebrate his 80th birthday in 2014 by releasing the new album Popular Problems. There's been word about any other recording or touring activity, but let's hope that when he said he'd follow Ihlen "very soon" into the afterlife he didn't mean that soon. Popular Problems is perhaps the greatest album ever released by an octogenarian. He's got a lot more life left in him.
