Mitt Romney Loves ‘Twilight’ and “American Idol” [VIDEO]


By Daniel Gates



Mitt Romney loves the Twilight Saga books and “American Idol,” the Republican presidential hopeful reveals in an interview on “The Today Show.”

After discussing his fondness for The Beatles and other classic rock, Romney opens up about being an “Idol” fanboy.

“This year with Scotty [McCreery] winning, that was terrific! That guy’s got talent!” gushes Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor also has a soft spot for the supernatural.

“I like silly stuff, too, I like the ‘Twilight’ series, I thought that was fun,” says Romney, although he’s quick to add, “I don’t like vampires, per se. I don’t know any.”

Sadly, Romney doesn’t reveal whether he’s Team Jacob or Team Edward.
