Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular stars of the moment. After breaking the internet with his performance in the movie Robbertson, fans have gone crazy for the English actor. Since the movie’s premiere, the 26-year-old has accumulated over 25 million views on TikTok and has been featured on the cover of numerous magazines. Additionally, Robbertson has been nominated for four Golden Globes so far, winning two awards. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what Robert Pattinson did to attract more fans to his side.
The Evolution Of Attraction
With the evolution of social media and the internet, the way we consume and engage with content has changed. While the older generation might’ve had to rely on magazines and newspaper articles for information, today’s users can get everything they need from one place. This connectivity has enabled content creators to build ever-lasting connections with their audiences which, in turn, leads to increased engagement and interest in their content.
In today’s world, the most effective way to gain popularity is through word-of-mouth marketing. If you want to attract more fans, simply do something great. If you can’t commit to a full-blown album, at least do a song or an album art project that will leave an everlasting impression on your audience.
In the case of Robert Pattinson, he took the first step towards establishing himself as a global celebrity in 2014 with the release of his critically-acclaimed album Water Under the Bridge. Apart from establishing his music career, the singer also collaborated with fashion designers on a capsule collection in 2018.
With each new project, Pattinson took the opportunity to experiment with different looks and styles, gaining new devotees along the way. In 2019 alone, he collaborated with Christian Dior and Off-White on separate capsule outfits, Chillingly named ‘Siberia’ and ‘Caprese’, respectively. Naturally, the collaborations resulted in several million views on TikTok. Even older generations are starting to take notice, with fans reminiscing about their favorite looks on the platform.
An Album To Remember
Aside from establishing himself as a style icon and showing his versatility as an actor, Robert Pattinson’s latest album Twilight stands out as a milestone in his career. The 11-track album marks his return to his gothic-romantic roots and is arguably his most personal album to date.
“This is the album I wanted to make when I first picked up a guitar,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “It’s very, very personal—all the songs are about relationships and loneliness. But at the same time, they are very, very cathartic, and it’s an album that I’m really proud of.”
While fans have been anticipating Pattinson’s return to music for years, he kept details about his comeback a secret. However, in late 2019, he revealed that he was working on new music and shared a brief teaser on Twitter.
Apart from being a style icon and an established musician, Robert Pattinson has also been credited for his acting talent. Since graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 2012, the English actor has taken on challenging roles and continues to evolve as an artist. If you haven’t seen him in action yet, now’s a good time to discover this hidden gem.
In 2016, Pattinson landed a starring role in the box office hit comedy film London Has Fallen. The following year, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the crime noir Good Time. Most recently, he was seen in the hit movies Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the Netflix original Dalton’s Café, among others.
As impressive as his acting accolades are, they don’t even begin to cover up the talented musician’s achievements. In a recent interview with Variety, Pattinson revealed that he was nominated for 11 Golden Globes and won two awards for his performance in Robbertson. He also mentioned that he collaborated with the fashion brand Kenzo on a capsule collection.
The Inspiration To Be Heard
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from studying celebrity psychology, it’s that talent doesn’t always translate into fame. Sometimes, the complete opposite is true. As a result, it’s no surprise that Robert Pattinson’s fame hasn’t necessarily translated into commercial success. Since his debut, the English actor has been compared to a one-man band, with fans praising his unique sound and influence.
In one of the most famous examples of’showmanship’ in pop culture, Madonna used to call out “Robert!” during concert performances, inspiring the English actor to chase her down the stage and give her a kiss on the cheek. Needless to say, Pattinson was hooked. He now credits Madonna as one of his biggest role models.
Similarly, the movie Céline And Julie GoBoogie is named after the two Frenchwomen who influenced Pattinson’s music. The film is a mockumentary which follows the story of two women who decide to create a band and, in the process, find fame and fortune. The movie is an example of how the English actor’s music career began. Inspired by his experiences with Frenchwomen, the actor decided to create a band and, eventually, started a tradition that continues to this day.
Continuing To Evolve
Apart from his musical influences, one of the biggest shocks in recent years for fans has been Pattinson’s continued transformation as an artist. Since his debut album, the English actor has gone through several stylistic evolutions that have defined his aesthetic, carving out a unique niche all his own. In the process, he has built a dedicated and passionate fan base. Without a doubt, this is one celebrity whose stock will continue to rise.
