We know [artist id="1231768"]Kelly Clarkson[/artist] is a [movie id="414921"]“Twilight”[/movie] fan. The singer has even blogged about her love of the Stephenie Meyer novels, Edward Cullen and her anticipation for the “New Moon” movie to be released later this year.
So wouldn’t Clarkson seem like a natural for the soundtrack to the “Twilight” sequel? That’s exactly what Internet chatter has been saying about an unreleased Clarkson song called “Did You?,” according to E! Online.
When MTV News contacted Clarkson’s label, RCA, about the rumor, they wouldn’t back it up. “We don’t have any statement,” a label rep said. “It’s wishful thinking on behalf of the fans. Totally fan-driven campaign.”
And sources close to Chris Weitz told E! that the director “has made no decisions regarding the music for the movie.”
It’s no wonder Weitz is taking his time with the selection, since the “New Moon” soundtrack has plenty to live up to: The soundtrack to “Twilight” has sold almost 2 million copies since its November release. One single from that disc, Paramore’s “Decode,” is up for the new Best Song From a Movie award at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.
After the band’s nomination was announced, singer Hayley Williams, who remains a loyal fan of the movie, told MTV News why she thinks Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson should win Best Kiss.
“There’s something really captivating about real tension between characters, or between people in general, that is exciting and more moving than pure, simple love,” Williams said. “It’s really interesting to watch people that aren’t really supposed to feel for each other make it happen, and I think it’s pretty special.”
