A source close to the situation explained:
Nothing brings us more joy then when Anne Rice takes on the neutered, emo vampires that inhabit the Twilight universe!
The Interview with the Vampire author has commented kindly on Stephenie Meyer's book series before, but recently took to Facebook to take a pretty HIGHlarious dig at the franchise, while discussing how her fictional, undead hunks Lestat and
"Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun. They would never hurt immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and over again in a small town — anymore than they would hurt the physically disabled or the mentally challenged. My vampires possess gravitas. They can afford to be merciful."
HA! Preach, gurl!
We're sure that we'll be incurring the wrath of Twi-hards ready to spontaneously combust into sparkles with rage for saying this, but the brat Prince Lestat will always be our number one blood-sucking hunk of a man!
Edward sits around and watches some boring teenager while she sleeps. Lestat went to heaven, hell, and back.
Just saying! Ha!
