You may have seen the trending news story surrounding the past week. On Dec. 16, 2017, English actor and musician Rob Pattinson shared an intimate moment with his longtime girlfriend, FKA Twigs. The duo was spotted kissing and cuddling in an intimate embrace during a peaceful night out in Los Angeles. The touching display saw Twigs wrap her arms around Pattinson as he held her close. They were later seen together in a cozy twosome stroll. The romantic encounter came after a day of bonding over a picnic dinner shared between the two.
The next morning, the two enjoyed a lazy breakfast together before heading off to work. While the picnic may have been fun, it was actually the beginning of a beautiful romance for Pattinson and Twigs. The stunning inspiration behind the couple’s tender display was later credited to the heart-rending music of George Michael. The Love Ballad, a song found on Michael’s iconic 1986 album, Faith, was reportedly playing in the background as Pattinson and Twigs enjoyed their passionate kiss. The English singer-songwriter penned the memorable ballad amid his bitter split from his beloved first wife, Bianca. Since then, Faith has become the iconic track that fans and new allies around the world have rallied behind.
George Michael and Rob Pattinson Celebrate 25 Years of Musical Magic
On Dec. 17, 2017, George Michael marked the 25th anniversary of his iconic album, Faith, with a special concert at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. The British singer brought his solo tour to the UK and debuted new music while celebrating 25 years of his brilliant solo career.
Faith itself was the centerpiece of the concert. With a gorgeous deep purple backdrop and stadium-style seating, Michael paid homage to the album that made him a superstar. The singer-songwriter performed an incredible set list that included the entire album and new songs from his upcoming and much-anticipated eighth studio album, which he has been working on since 2014. At the end of the show, fans and allies gathered to celebrate the legendary performer and his incredible music. After the show, Michael took to his Twitter account to express his excitement for the milestone birthday, writing, “Many happy returns to my incredible fans! Thank you for such an amazing response to this years shows.”
The following day, British tabloid The Sun reported that English actor and musician Rob Pattinson might be getting ready to propose to British model and actress Emily Blunt. If the news is true, then fans of the “Bond girl” have good reason to be excited. Blunt is recognized for her exquisite beauty and elegance, while Pattinson is best known for his brooding good looks. The two have been friends for a long time and have had chemistry onscreen since they worked together on the 2013 film, The Necromancer. While the two worked through their romantic feelings for each other in that movie, it wasn’t exactly a happy ending. In fact, the film saw them share an intimate dance together that was witnessed by millions of viewers.
Emily was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2011 and was forced to put her acting career on hold to receive treatment. After undergoing radiation therapy and then surgery, she made a beautiful recovery and returned to work. Since then, the talented star has worked hard to stay fit while maintaining her gorgeous smile. In 2015, she revealed that she had to have a root canal after experiencing a toothache. Later that year, she gave birth to their daughter, Sophia. If this is indeed the case, then it would be a stunning proposal.
Pattinson announced the proposal on social media writing, “Here we go,” along with a picture of Blunt wearing a gorgeous yellow dress. He later added, “Thank you to everyone who has wished us well on our big day. We can’t wait to celebrate with you all.”
Fans React To Romantic Proposal
In true celebrity gossip fashion, the story about the romantic proposal made headlines around the world. Social media users reacted with delight to the news that a beloved singer and songwriter might propose to his long-time lover. While some expressed their happiness for the couple, others couldn’t help but wonder if the engagement was a publicity stunt.
“OMG! I can’t believe this!! So happy for Rob & Emily,” one user wrote. “They deserve to be together. This will be such a beautiful story to tell their children.” While another added, “I don’t know why everybody is saying this is about publicity. It’s not. It’s about love. They deserve to be together.” Still, others had some cynical thoughts, writing, “What a load of crap. He’s probably just f*cking with her.”
Whether or not the proposal is a publicity stunt, the fact remains that Pattinson and Blunt have been extremely private figures in the public eye. The relationship between the two has largely been kept under wraps, with only occasional sightings of the couple in public together. The beautiful British actress has even gone so far as to refuse to grant any interviews about her personal life, including the speculation surrounding their rumored romance. For his part, Pattinson has maintained a low profile, avoiding the limelight, even though he has become a recognizable face due to his association with famous friends and family.
It’s uncertain which line of work the couple will pursue after their big day. They have both been focused on their careers and have largely stayed out of the public eye. Still, this hasn’t stopped fans from keeping up with the latest news about the couple. On the day of the proposal, Emily’s Instagram account featured a heart-felt post about Pattinson, writing, “Happy to share this magical moment with you all. Thank you, George, for such an incredible song, and to all who have been along for the ride these past 25 years. Here’s to the next 25!”
The day after the proposal, George Michael shared a sweet message to his fans. “Thank you for your amazing support over the years,” he wrote. “This is surely a proud moment for us. We love you all!”
While fans continue to celebrate the proposal, it’s unclear whether or not the couple will actually follow through with the engagement. In the meantime, we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for Rob Pattinson and Emily Blunt.
