Chris Wolstenholme Answers How ‘Twilight’ Has Helped Muse’s Popularity

For years now, Muse has been huge in Europe, big in Australia, cherished in Japan – places that appreciate elastic-to-falsetto vocals combined with orchestral arrangements and monster guitar riffs.

Formed in Devon, England, in 1994 – when singer-guitarist-pianist Matthew Bellamy, bassist-keyboardist Chris Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard were teenagers – Muse creates a sound that is big wherever it's heard.

Even Muse's mellowest songs brim with energy, and the band's great sense of showmanship comes through in its music videos as well as live performances.

The United States is getting up to speed on Muse mania, fueled by the band's reputation as one of the finest live acts in the world. After appearing on all three "Twilight" soundtracks and scoring a hit with the anthemic, spin-class ready "Uprising" ("We will be vic-tor-iiioous"), off the 2009 album "The Resistance," Muse headlines – and sells out – arena shows in the United States.

On Tuesday, the band appears at Arco Arena. Wolstenholme, reached by telephone last week before a show in San Diego, discussed Muse's career and sound.

It seems as if you really broke through in the United States over the past few years …

Yeah, I think when (2003 album) "Absolution" came out, that was really our first album in the States. The first record deal we ever signed was actually in America, with Maverick. And we did (1999 album) "Showbiz," and nothing really happened. … I think (the label) wanted a big radio hit before they were willing to pay for us to go on tour, and we didn't really understand that.

Obviously, we know now that America is quite different from the rest of the world in the way radio works. But we always felt that in Europe and everywhere else where the band was doing well, it was through doing lots of touring, and going back (again and again) to places. We were always a bit dumbfounded, really, because we always felt there was no reason for that approach not to work in America.

When (2001 album) "Origin of Symmetry" came out, by that point, we thought America was gone, really. Maverick didn't really like the album, and they weren't willing to pay for us to tour, so we thought, "Well, we will concentrate on Europe and Australia and Japan."

So we did, and then, when we did "Absolution," (current label) Warner Bros. came on board … they had seen what had gone on in the rest of the world, and they were willing to put up the money to try to break this band through playing live. And we did about six months of touring in the States, and we just kept coming back.

How much did appearing on the "Twilight" soundtracks help your popularity in the States?

It really helped. I think in this day and age when people don't go out and buy as many records, you use things like that to expose yourself to people who don't know the band. It caused more of a buzz, and more people came out to see us live, and now it is sort of catching up. We are playing in arenas over here, and we are really enjoying it. I think that is what we always wanted but we thought we could never have.

You are now known as one of the best live bands around. Did it take awhile to develop your live act?

Yeah. The kinds of bands we grew up listening to were bands that always had good live followings – Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine. … We wanted to (attain) that kind of level of respect. I think the true heart and soul of any performer or band is what they do on stage, what they do for real. Anyone can be good in the studio.

In the early days, we were quite good players, but I guess we had confidence issues. We wouldn't move around all that much onstage. In the early days, particularly supporting bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters, we felt so out of our depth, because we were young kids, 19 or 20 years old, in front of 25,000 people every night. And it made us realize we had to "up" our game a little bit, you know? Almost become actors, if you like.

We just used to stand there and play. And we realized in order to play well live, you have to put on a spectacle as well. It was something we grew into to the point that it is very natural now. I think it is something that everybody has inside them, but there are always self-consciousness and confidence issues that cloud it.

You have been compared a lot to Queen. How do you feel about that?

I don't mind it. I mean, I love Queen. I think Queen are a great band.

All of us are fans of Queen. I think Queen were of that generation that our parents grew up in. I remember listening to a lot of Queen records when I was younger because that's what my mum and dad loved. And I think it was the same for Matt's parents. They listened to Queen. It was the kind of thing that was always on in the car when you were growing up. Those are the kinds of things that do influence you later in life.

I think musically, we're quite different. I think the rhythm section is very different. (But) I think there's an openness we have that Queen had, and kind of this, you know, not being afraid to be a bit silly sometimes. I think that was what Queen were all about – being very over the top and not being afraid to make a (fool) of yourself. I think that is something we learned from them.

But there are also times where this band is very subtle, as well. I think Queen are obviously one of many (influences). I don't mind the comparisons. I can see where they come from.

As long as people don't say we ripped Queen off, which nobody has done yet. (laughs)

The 'Twilight' Book Series still part of Banned Books Week

The "Twilight" series, first published in 2005, is featured by the American Library Association for Banned Books Week, which runs this year from Sept. 25 to Oct. 2.

One of the most popular fictional series of the past five years, "Twilight" has the keen distinction of also being one of the American Library Association's Ten Most Frequently Challenged Books of 2009. Writing about the supernatural is a surefire way to find your books banned. Fantasy, vampires magic, the supernatural and even science-fiction books are grouped in with Satanism, the occult and witchcraft by those who attempt to have the books removed from library shelves.

Vampires are easy targets for book banning, as the banning of the "Vampire Academy" in Texas proves. Even with its vast popularity and cross-marketing machine (from books to movies, game boards and school supplies), the "Twilight" series by Stephenie Meyer has been challenged and either banned or returned to school library bookshelves.

For similar reasons, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and the Harry Potter series have all been banned or challenged at one time.

The "Twilight" series begins with a simple romantic premise as familiar as the tale of "Romeo and Juliet:" Two young teens with different backgrounds, who should not be together, fall in love. Make one the new girl in school and the other a vampire, add exploratory thoughts about death and sexual desire, tons of adjectives and adverbs and you have the new teen sensation.

The Twilight series has been challenged for being "unsuited to age group," "sexually explicit" and because of its "religious viewpoint," according to the ALA.

Specific challenges and bans include:

* In September 2008, the "Twilight" books were temporarily removed from and later returned to middle-school libraries in the Capistrano Unified School District in California. It was the district's instructional materials specialist who initially "ordered" the books removed. (More information.)

* In May 2009, the series was challenged at Brockbank Junior High in Magna, Utah. A parent complained about the "over sexual content" in the novel "Breaking Dawn," which is part of the series. (More information.)

* In September 2009, "Twilight" was banned from library at Santa Sabina College Strathfield in Australia for being "too racy," according to Library and Information Science News. The "Twilight" series was removed from "schools because they believe the content is too sexual and goes against religious beliefs," according to Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom in November 2009 (More information.)

The "Twilight" series has achieved popular, financial and critical success. The first book in the series hit The New York Times Best Seller list within a month of being released.

The first book in the series -- also called "Twilight" -- has sold 17 million copies worldwide and earned a number of awards, including The New York Times Editor's choice. It is also included on these lists:

* Best Children's Books of 2005 and "Best Book of the Year" by Publisher's Weekly

* Best Books of 2005 by School Library Journal

* The Top Books of 2008 from USA Today

The rest of the books in the series continue to receive accolades and set sales records:

* "New Moon" (2006) received the Young Reader's Choice Award in 2009.

* "Eclipse" (2007) sold more than 4.5 millions copies and was in a top-five selling book of 2008.

* "Breaking Dawn" (2008) broke a first-day sales record, selling 1.3 million copies in its first day, according to Hachette Book Group USA.

Rachelle Lefevre talks to Montreal Gazette about Film, Fame and Fashion

The Montreal-born, Hollywood-based actress handles it well, even when he sits down uninvited at our table; she’s gracious and kind, asking if they’ve met. They haven’t. The obvious is left unsaid: he probably recognizes her from Twilight, the wildly popular vampire film franchise in which Lefevre played evil Victoria in the first two of three movies. Welcome to the downside of celebrity in its most benign form, a small intrusion into everyday life.

Lefevre, 31, was in town this summer for Eyes Wide Open, the extravagant masked ball to benefit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. She agreed to play model for us and talk about fame, film and fashion.


But she’s really not that famous, particularly by L.A. standards, said Lefevre, who moved to California six years ago. And there’s a difference between fame and celebrity, in which you are known simply for who you are. What really bothers her is being misrepresented, misquoted and stalked by cameras.

“I don’t like being photographed in my everyday life, but it’s a reality. Just keep your distance and make yourself known,’’ she said of the paparazzi.

But the frenzied teen fans and notoriety of Twilight are behind Lefevre now.

She has three film projects wrapped and soon to roll: political drama Casino Jack, with Kevin Spacey; psychological thriller The Caller, opposite Steven Moyer; and closest to home, Barney’s Version, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Friday and played the Toronto internation Film Festival Sunday, based on the novel by Mordecai Richler and with an impressive cast including Paul Giamatti as Barney Panofsky.

Richler and his Montreal speaks to Lefevre. It is, after all, part of her own history. She is a true Montrealer, having lived all over the region: in Notre Dame de Grâce, Nuns’ Island, Rosemère, Snowdon, downtown, Côte St. Luc and Town of Mount Royal.

And to respect her father’s French heritage as well as make the Jewish grandparents happy, she was named Rachelle, which works in both cultures.

In Barney’s Version, Lefevre plays Clara, the troubled first Mrs. Panofsky. Everything about the role is a thrill for her: first, that she’s from Montreal, that it’s a Richler story rich in this city’s lore, that it’s produced by Robert Lantos, for whom she worked on Fugitive Pieces, and that the character she plays is so fragile and disturbed.

“She couldn’t be damaged to the point of being undesirable,” says Lefevre, adding the character “does everything to hide her fragility, so she’s outrageous and outgoing.”

“She becomes the biggest presence in the room, so you can’t help but be drawn to her.’’

Lefevre won’t pronounce on Clara’s mental instability: “I’m reluctant to diagnose her because Mordecai never did.’’ And the cast: Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver and Dustin Hoffman are also on the roster. “I just can’t believe my name is alongside these people.’’

The Barney character, she says, is a loveable misanthrope surrounded by artists pushing the envelope in Rome – the book is set in Paris – “And he wants so badly to be one of them, but he isn’t. He’s a sensible Montreal Jew who is a businessman.

“What I love about Montreal – the staircases – you just don’t see that anywhere else – and the whole French culture, St. Urbain and St. Denis.

“It was kind of magical to see the way he wrote about Montreal in that time was still the Montreal I was living in. “It had a real sense of history about it for me.”

Lefevre is a tried and true fashionista, rifling through racks for the fashion shoot with the eye of a pro and posing for the camera just so.

Yet she admits to that split California-style personality. At a fitting and interview in Little Italy, she wore a grey T-shirt and skinny jeans; at home, she says, her uniform is a white T and jeans.

“I wouldn’t love my blue jeans so much if I didn’t get to get out of them now and then,’’ she says.

And she wouldn’t like to get dolled up all the time either. That involves some very fine names in fashion, including Stella McCartney, for whom she saves up to buy a piece – “I’m obsessed with the ’80s and so is she.” Also, Bottega Veneta, which “always looks flawless”; whimsical, out-there Louis Vuitton;

and another obsession, hard-edge Balmain for when she’s feeling edgy and bold.

“Sometimes, like every woman, I just like to feel pretty and soft,’’ she says.

Despite her styling eye and skill at posing – she strikes those classic fashion poses with the scrunched shoulders, eyes wide peering into the distance, face composed – with the ease of any professional model, Lefevre says she feels she isn’t good at having her picture taken.

“I love fashion, so the photo shoots, having your hair and makeup done, the whole fun dressup and glamorous side of it – it’s a really fun job perk.

“But there’s something about standing still or being in a very contained environment, when it’s just you and the camera.

“It makes me so self-conscious.

“When I’m in front of a movie camera I’m thinking about a million other things, thinking about the other actor, the scene, I’m living a life.’’

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer chats with fans on Music and Muse The Villainous Volturi

Elysa: I wanna talk about the Volturi because not only are they probably my single most favorite aspect of the series but I think as far as the villains go [they’re] probably my favorite of almost any book I’ve ever read.  Because for me they’re like—

Matt: Rockstars.

Elysa: Well yes, naturally.  But—

Kallie: Foreign rockstars.

Elysa: What I like so much is that you can’t…there’s a great sense of ambiguity there in a lot of ways.  They’re clearly the enemy and you’re clearly afraid of them but there’s a sort of reverence as well and especially because, in some ways as humans, you have to kind of respect a little bit that they prevent things, like Seattle, from happening all the time.  So I love them for that reason, also because I think a lot of villains, whether it’sHarry Potter or Star Wars and other big franchises, you can tell by looking at them you know what I mean?

SM: Monsters.  They look ugly.  Zombies coming at you.

Elysa: Exactly!  It’s like that’s expected and you know…

SM: Although there’s a book that’s gonna come out I think next year called Warm Bodies that will change zombies for you forever so—

Meghan: For the rest of your life.

SM: For the rest of your life.  You’ll never look at them and not be like—

Meghan: Go get it.

(chatter)

SM: It’s not out yet.  It’s by Isaac Marion, and it’ll change zombies for you forever.

Matt: Is it a series?

SM: No—

(chatter)

Meghan: It’s a stand-alone. He has a website and he has up some of his other stuff.  Plug for Isaac!

SM: I mean it’s funny because I always use zombies as an example like how monsters you’re supposed to be able to look at…And see that’s…I find it so much more frightening when you can’t tell.  You know because it’s like I never really got scared over monster movies and I found I didn’t watch a lot of horror, the ones that scared me were like psycho because he looks like a nice guy and that’s when you don’t know.  And that’s the scary thing because you walk out of your house and there isn’t a dinosaur about to eat you but there is a guy right over there and what if he’s a psychopath?  And I’ve always been fascinated with appearances because evil doesn’t appear evil, it doesn’t.  It’s clean and shiny and pretty.  The Volturi are kind of, they’re villains that got to have 3,000 years to refine themselves into [this] perfect powerful presence, and they’re fun.  It’s fun to show vampires at the very pinnacle of that power, although they’re not really at the…They are very dark but you know you have a whole different kind.  You kind of figure with vampires the whole, like the more wild and blood-thirsty, but this is just such a controlling and patient kind of evil.

Elysa: That’s what creeps me out!

SM: The patience is…Well and one thing, Aro in particular, the really really darkest thing for me about him is that he can honestly love someone and still kill them if it gets in his way; like his sister who he honestly loved, who was like the most important person in his world, but she got in the way of his ambition and he could kill her and grieve her but grieve over what he had done but still do it because that was okay to him in his world. And when you can do that, when you can cross that line—shivers.

Elysa: Yeah, yeah.

Matt: Do you have a question?

Elysa: No, I just wanted to fangirl a bit.

Matt: Oh, okay!

SM: You know who you should read?  My favorite villains, like the scariest villains I’ve ever read, have any of you read Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman?  [Croup] and [Vandemar], Oh. My. Gosh!

Elysa: What’s the name of this?

SM: It’s called Neverwhere, and it’s by Neil Gaiman, who’s one of my favorite like geniuses, and he has these bad guys [Croup] and [Vandemar], I’ve never read anyone so terrifying in my life.  They’re so good.  So good!

(chatter)

Elysa:  Maybe there is a question to be salvaged from all of this.  Did you always know the Volturi went to visit Victoria before?

SM: Yes, because in the story, when Alice has the vision, they give her four days and I always knew that there was an impetus that they had met up that she had to make a decision because Victoria’s would’ve been to be like: “Now.  Let’s go.” You know? No thought.  That’s how she was planning to roll.  Get them ready kind of get there and they’re like now we run and so that they have maybe, at most, an hour to get to her.   Four days was really an exorbitant amount of time and that was the Volturi’s fault because Jane was tired of waiting and so she went and said, “You have to do something already.”  Victoria was making a huge mess.

Elysa: I think you might’ve touched on this before a little bit earlier, but you said that sometimes Jane does act on her own a little bit.

SM: This is really kind of a…I mean, Aro is very controlling.  He is the pinnacle and he has all the power and so he calls the shots but in this specific case knowing with Alice he has to deviate from the pattern and so he let Jane make her…You know he said, “Go out.” And not even specifically about them because Alice could see that, you know just “Jane, I think that you are very much fantastic and I want you to go out and take care of things in the world that need to be taken care of on your own.  I think you can make your own decisions.”  And Jane is like: “Ah, I know what this is about.”  And so she goes out there and she knows it’s her mission.  She knows it’s about the Cullens.  She knows that she has to effect some kind of progress there, but how to do it.  So yeah that’s Jane.  You could write a story about Jane through [that] month of frustration and all the stuff she was trying to do and not screwing up so that when she came home Aro didn’t decide “maybe I don’t need someone who can burn people.”

Elysa: Do you think…

Kallie: Go ahead! That was what we were gonna ask so that’s good.

Matt: We have a while.

Elysa: Okay.  Does…I always was under the impression that Jane hated Bella more than anyone and then we read Bree and apparently she really hates Alice .

SM: Well think about it, Aro this whole time…Aro is the one person of significance in her life, besides Alec, but Aro is the one that she always wants to be the favorite of.

Matt: Like the new baby.

SM: Yeah.  Well but I mean they’ve had a relationship for years.  She is his prize.  She is his jewel.  He is unstoppable because of her.  Alec obviously is a big part in that too but there’s a very strong relationship there and now he’s found a shinier jewel than her, and if she could kill Alice she’d do it in a heartbeat.  But she knows that that would, I mean she’d be in real trouble then.  So she hates Alice .  Bella’s just annoying, someone who doesn’t cringe in pain?  How dare she!  But Alice —

(chatter and laughter)

SM: Alice is a problem for her, a big problem.  You know that when it came down to the fight if… Jane would’ve been hopeful that Alice would’ve gone out.  And you know, how frustrating Aro gets there and Alice isn’t there and it’s like: “Oh crap.”  And Jane’s sitting there like: “She’s not gonna die?”  And Aro knows exactly how she feels and he’s able to play that to his benefit ‘cause he’s sick!

(chatter)

SM: He is sick, but lovely, and Michael Sheen…You know I—

SM: We kicked around a lot of names with that, right?  And Michael Sheen was Chris’ [Weitz] choice and you know I hadn’t…Frost/Nixon?  He’s a great actor but I couldn’t see him in it.

Fansite: Oh Lucian, so hot!

SM: Well see, I hadn’t seen the Underworld things and so I was just like: “Uh, I don’t know.  I kind of had a different mental image and I had this actor or that actor that I wanted” and he talked me into it.  First day I saw him on set I went up to Chris and I said, “Thank you so much.  You were right, I was wrong.  I will listen to you forever because you were so right on that one.”

(chatter)

SM: It was like acting class to watch him go in there.  Every single take he did something different, he did a slightly different thing.  Always, of course, lines perfect.   He would never [make a] mistake but he gave them something different for the director to pull from and he’s so great.  He’s a really interesting guy.  He’s so much fun to talk to.

Fansite: My husband thinks I’m crazy for all this.  When he heard that Michael Sheen was [in New Moon] he was like: “Oh, maybe this isn’t as crazy as I thought.”

SM: He is so great, and it’s one of the reasons I love that movie is because I love watching him work.  Every time he comes on it’s just like: “Say something more!”

(chatter)

SM: And I hate that Jamie Campbell Bower did not get as many lines he had originally.

(chatter)

SM: ‘Cause he is chilling.

Kallie: He’s brilliant.

SM: He actually tried out for Demetri.

Kallie: Oh really?

SM: And he was too scary for Demetri, we were watching it.  There was another guy that…You know Demetri is supposed to be, Charlie [Bewley] was sort of the in between,  Demetri is supposed to be smoother and like kind of calm people down, but then of course movie people don’t want to ever have somebody that’s a peacemaker they want all the tension.  So Charlie was scary, but not as scary as Jamie.  Jamie was chilling and then his face takes the makeup like nobody else, he has no pores!  His face is perfect.  And he looked, you know he got in the makeup and every line he delivered had so much weight and you’re just like: “More.  More please.”  Caius needs a story.  We need to see more of it.  A whole thing with him and Michael Sheen just let’s go!  Well Marcus too, who also… Chris [Heyerdahl] just creepy.  He just did this thing where he sounded like he had 500 years of dust in his throat.  It was crazy.

Paparazzo says he's clear of Twilight actor Kellan Lutz charges involving an alleged hit and run in Montreal

A Vancouver paparazzo says Montreal police are no longer investigating him in connection with an incident involving an alleged hit and run with a Twilight movie star.

According to court documents obtained by CBC News, actor Kellan Lutz claimed he was struck by a car driven by paparazzo Richard Fedyck while on a film set in Montreal this summer.

The driver allegedly backed up into Lutz and then left the scene after the incident without stopping.

The documents said Lutz feared for his safety after the alleged incident on the set of a movie Immortals, which was not connected with the Twilight films.

Richmond RCMP filed the documents in B.C. provincial court in July at the request of Montreal police, who said Fedyck may be a suspect in the hit and run and in the alleged criminal harassment of Lutz.

RCMP said the driver's licence photo of Fedyck was needed to identify or eliminate him as a suspect.
No charges laid

The allegations did not result in any charges, and when contacted by CBC News on Thursday, Fedyck said he was shocked to learn of the investigation.

"I've never been contacted by anybody in Montreal or Vancouver," Fedyck said.

Then on Friday morning Fedyck told CBC News that a Montreal detective told him that they're no longer investigating him because two eye witnesses told police that it appeared Lutz was only acting like he was hurt.

"He says it's a non-issue. That's why nothing was ever pursued," he said.

Fedyck acknowledged he was in Montreal and witnessed the incident involving Lutz, but said the car was driven by an associate.

Treated like a criminal: Fedyck

Fedyck made headlines several years ago for suing actors Pamela Anderson and Denise Richards after Richards allegedly threw two of Fedyck's laptop computers off a third-floor balcony.

But the photographer says he's often treated like a criminal for doing his job and Hollywood stars need to recognize Canadian paparazzo as legitimate.

"They, you know, think that because it's Canada that they're getting away from the L.A. paps. Well, there's a Vancouver photographer that does celebrity photography in Vancouver. That's me ... and they're going to have to get used to that, right?"

Lutz, 25, who plays the character Emmett Cullen in the hugely popular series of romance movies about vampires, was unavailable for comment.

Taylor Lautner Wins $40,000 Settlement Against RV Company LawSuit

Taylor Lautner would be $40,000 richer today -- if he weren't donating the money to charity.

The Twilight actor, 18, reached a settlement with McMahon's RV Friday after the California-based company failed to deliver a trailer to the set of Abduction by June 21.

"McMahon's RV has agreed to settle its dispute with Taylor Lautner. McMahon's RV will pay $40,000 to Lautner, which Lautner will donate to The Lollipop Theater Network, a children's charity with which he has a long-standing relationship," Lautner's attorney Robert Barta tells UsMagazine.com exclusively.

Adds Barta: "The Lollipop Theater Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing movies currently in theaters to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The Lollipop Theater Network works with hospitals nationwide, including the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas.?"

Though TMZ claimed Lautner suffered from "emotional distress" over the incident, a source tells Us that simply wasn't true.

"This was never a suit about money. It was to hold someone accountable," the insider says. "Taylor never ordered a customized RV -- it was a used RV which needed simple safety-related repairs. There was never any diva behavior. 'Emotional distress' is an automatic checked box on a fraudulent claim."

True Twilight: A Glee Club Musical Performs "Don't Stop Bleeding"

The kids over at Gorilla Tango Theatre have really got their finger on the pulse with True Twilight: A Glee Club Musical, premièring Sept. 1. Combining all the best camp from True Blood, Twilight, Glee, and High School Musical, this play should hit the spot for any fangbanger, Gleek, or respectable adult woman who thinks Robert Pattinson is the cat's pajamas.

The plot's wacky, so hang in there: Suckie Stickhouse moves to Wiccan Park and finds herself torn asunder by two swarthy but boring dudes, Ted Mullen and Shirts On The Ground. While she hems and haws over the impossible choice, she bides her time by trying out for the local musical, where she draws the ire of Rachel Sharpay, town priss. Hijinks ensue, songs are sung, and somehow Bill Nye The Science Guy helps solve everyone's problems.

This collaborative effort runs Wednesdays through most of September, and is definitely over the top, with campy jokes about glitter dicks and fleeting virginity. But according to director Andrew Kraft, that's the whole point. "It's a silly parody," he says. "Audiences are coming because they love the characters, and they want to watch people have a ton of fun doing the show."

The A.V. Club popped in on dress rehearsal and caught some of the big musical climax, "Don't Stop Bleeding." Good luck getting this earworm to go away. It's about to become your own personal brand of heroin.
