RPattz Says No To Cowell: Robert Pattinson and Simon Cowell won’t be making music together. According to Britain’s Press Association, “The Twilight Saga” star, who plays guitar and piano, said he wouldn’t sign a deal with Simon’s label because he thinks his mucis is “very depressing” and that he wouldn’t be popular enough to fit in amongst more mainstream pop acts. The Sun, via the Press Association, reported that Simon wants the actor for his record label, Syco. This wasn’t a total dis though — RPattz added that, “I love Simon, I think he is a great personality and I think his shows are entertaining.” We think his “very depressing” music is exactly what Twi-hards are thirsting for.
