MSN's Regrettable Trends in Pop Culture: 2008 Edition

    MSN has a review of the regrettable trends in pop culture for 2008. I totally disagree that we have to regret Twilight. But their reason for regretting is just really funny.

    The "Twilight" Craze: In the weeks before the movie came out, fans of the book series stormed suburban malls to see the Boy Who Would Play Edward. Injuries happened -- including some self-inflicted neck wounds because, apparently, not all fans are aware that Edward is just a pretend vampire/perfect boyfriend/accomplished Volvo driver.

    The backlash may have already begun, though. It started with the fourth book in the series, which featured some bruising love scenes and a medical procedure that will forever be referred to as "The Edwardian Section." And it was sealed with the release of the movie. Even though fans mostly loved it, they also snickered at the rather over-the-top dialogue.

    "You better hold on tight, spider monkey!" is this year's "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."

    But what we were really expecting when we fell in love with a guy whose skin ... glittered?
