Las Vegas Woman Raises Over $1200 To MARRY Edward Cullen…In Cardboard Cut-Out Form!

lauren-adkins-performance-art-las-vegas-wedding-cardboard-cut-out-edward-cullen

Okay, let's get real here, folks.

We all knew this was only a matter of time!

In fact, we're pretty sure there's certain Twi-Hards out there who aren't KICKING themselves for not thinking of this first!

But yes, a Las Vegas woman named Lauren Adkins has reportedly raised $1,235 on the crowdfunding website indiegogo to pay for her upcoming WEDDING ceremony to a cardboard cut-out of Robert Pattinson's character in Twilight, Edward Cullen!

Now, before you explode into a thousand tiny sparkles of rage, jealousy, or any other emotion that may come be seeping through you right now, get this: it's all part of a performance art installation for her MFA thesis, as her focus of study is on ideas of love perpetuated through pop culture and how they affect our own expectations!

Comic-Con Will Remain In San Diego… For Now!

Filed under: Comic-Con

San Diego Comic-Con

San Diego may still be in danger of losing Comic-Con eventually, but California nerds can rest easy for the time being!

Mayor Jerry Sanders has announced that the pop culture extravaganza has extended its commitment to the city one more year.

Originally, the contract was only through 2015, with many vendors threatening to pull out unless the city expands the Convention Center to better accommodate the 130,000+ crowds.

The city has agreed to a $500,000 dollar expansion- not too bad when you consider the convention brings an estimated $160,000 to the city EVERY YEAR!

So for now Comic-Con has agreed to stay SDCC at least until 2016! Maybe we'll even have a Justice League movie by then!

Madonna Basks In Birthday Love At Oslo Concert!

Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinutePerezTV

Your Reaction?

Aww, Madgesty! Having one's true fans enthusiastically wishing you a happy birthday at your own concert must be the most splendid of gifts!

If you didn't know, today is Madonna's birthday! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUEEN OF OUR HEARTS!!!!

Instead of taking the day off to celebrate this, the day of her birth, Madonna was a-workin' hard while putting on a leather and lace-clad MDNA show for her lovely Norwegian fans!

And, because the MDNA concert-goers obviously adore her Madgesty just as much as we do, they decided to sing Madonna happy birthday, which (it seems) made our darling poptart cry (above)!

We can't believe Madonna entered the world 54 years ago TODAY… what an influential gift to pop culture!

We wouldn't be the same without you, Madge!

A group of first responders and emergency agencies from eight communities in the area met earlier this week to simulate a mock zombie virus outbreak.

The light-hearted pandemic preparedness

1.) Rue
2.) Emmett
3.) Ivy (as in Blue Ivy) and Adele
4.) Grayson (from Revenge)
