My first thought is: WOW! "Twilight" made the cover of "Entertainment Weekly"!

I guess this means the cat is officially out of the bag, Twilighters. The little secret that you folks have lovingly shared for years is now famous enough to sell big-time magazines. And after the high-visibility release of next month's "Breaking Dawn" and all the TV appearances, billboards and events that will build up to the movie’s release (including Comic-Con later this month), it's just going to continue to grow.
