R-Patz Turned Down Record Deal With Simon Cowell

twilight robert pattinson Turned Down Record Deal With Simon Cowell

Silly, Robert Pattinson! Who's managing your career, BB? This was a little naive.

Some of you who aren't counting down the 300 some odd days before Breaking Dawn comes out might not know that RPatz, along with being a sparkly vampire, is also a musician and rather talented one at that. He isn't LEGENDARY, but he has a nice voice and good ear and talent behind the keys and strings.

With this in mind, along with his MAJOR popularity due to the Twilight franchise, Simon Cowell reportedly offered Rob a record deal with his label. Rob turned the offer down, claiming his music would be too "depressing" for the likes of Simon and didn't think he was the right fit to "launch" Rob.

What launch? You have a fanbase that spans the BILLIONS. We think it would safe to say you'd fair rather well as a recording artist even if you just say on a stool and played the kazoo for an hour.

But anyway…

RPatz told sources that he though Simons was a "clever guy" with a bounty of knowledge, but that he was "selfish" with his music and doesn't believe it is mainstream enough. He explains:

"I get my guitar and I play what I like, but the problem is I don't think many other people would like it…I am sure I'll be one of those artists that people don't pay any attention to while I'm alive, and when I am dead people will go, 'Yeah man, that was a work of art'."

Um, you really want to wait that long to give Twi-hards their musical Rob fix? That doesn't seem very fair! They only have two more movies to keep them going! Do you really want to deprive them further!

    I love love love his singing voice. I got hooked on two of the songs from the Twilight movie and then later found out it was Pattinson. Big surprise but his
    vocal talent was shocking to me…..it still is kinda. There is something sensitive
    and haunting about his voice. I wonder just how many people love his music and don't realize it is him singing.

    Stuff he did for twilight pinched my heart, it was gorgeous. I'd buy. I don't want mainstream.

  3. 3

    he sang "let me sign" wonderfully. "i'll be your lover too" is also great but he's right, not a lot of people are going to like how/what he sings - esp. these kids that like rihanna, katy perry, gaga and nicki minaj……..

    Smart move…he is essentially the James Dean of his time so if he did die and had a collection of music it would make him a legend opposed to a teen sensation.
    Always so quick to cash in and make millions and oil the money machine of Hollywood Perez.
    The guy doesn't need the cash or the notoriety

    I'm glad…..I don't want to listen music from this ordinary guy… Enough sleepy movies from him already !

  6. 6

    Finally an entertainer that knows where he blongs and isn't using famewhoring as a step to sell more crap… This may be a stp in changing my oppinion on thie guy…

    Unfortunately it's a smart move for right now. Successful actors who try and move into a singing career are rarely given a fair shot with media and critics and seeing as though the media has a pretty strong hold onto leading people's opinions, I guarantee they would probably be waiting to butcher his music before they even hear it. It's a shame, though, his music and voice are actually very good.

    This dude's got enough $$$. He doesn't need to whore himself out especially to the likes of Simon Cowell. Good for him to keep some stuff personal. Of course, lets see what happens in a few years.

    Now I´ve got a respect for the guy…for tuning down Cowell.
    It´s good that Robert knows with whom NOT to work. Cowell is not a good "company".
    There are plenty other good record labels that will suit Robert better….Kudos for him that he realizes that and is not fame-whoring himself !!!

    Go Robert. Nice to know that someone with his level of 'fame' really doesn't care about the money and selling crap to those who will buy it BUT making music.

    Such a captivating voice. *Swoooooon*

    The Twilight franchise made a HUGE mistake! The Twilight books should have been condensed into (3) movies. The latest movie was total garbage, revealing almost nothing! The public has a limited attention span, and Robert P was WHITE HOT six months ago, and now there seems to be less and less interest in him. They were GREEDY, and tried to drag this story out, but Hollywood should leave business to the business people, and try to put out ART for a change!

    Very Smart. Rob has a wonderful soulful, unique voice. But, he does not need to be linked with Simon. It has to be on Rob's terms and his time. I would love to see Rob do a CD in the future. But, BIG compliment if Simon says Rob has talent.

    @GothamGirl - - You took the words out of my mouth. I didn't go see Eclipse and have no desire to see the movies 4 and 5. Summit or Scummit really messed up.

  15. 15

    may he read too much comments on youtube. people there there are bushing him about his music…

  16. 16

    I absolutely love everything that I have heard him sing. He is very talented..I'd listen to his music more than I would watch his movies..PLEASEEEEEE make an album

  17. 17

    let me sign is actually one of my favorite songs and i think he sings it beautifully. Theres just something about his voice that lured me in LONG BEFORE i knew it was him singing it. Id love to hear more of his work :)

    R-Patz signing a record deal with Simon Cowell would be like you getting married to Megan Fox.

  23. 23

    I love his voice I would buy it.I loved Let me sign the way his voice is when he sings it jus sticks 2 u.Very sexy voice luv him!!

  24. 24

    He´s 100% right! Too spotlights on him may disturb his actor career.

    Next year, he´s already going to be overexposed with 3 movies: Water For Elephants , Bel Ami and, of course , Breaking Down. Smart guy….silly Perez!

  25. 25

    i like rob pattinson, and wish him a long career. i could actually care less about any of the twilight movies. i'm looking foward to seeing him in water for elephants next year.

    I like Rob Pattinson, but he cannot sing. He needs to stay with acting!
