While purchasing a cheeseburger, I became the luckiest girl in GR. A tour manager for Maroon 5 approached me and upgraded me to the front row. Yes, I felt Adam Levine's sweat, and I'm going to keep the confetti in my hair for as long as possible. -Hughet

Breaking Dawn: Part 2 Narrowly Escapes R Rating (Full Story: Los Angeles Times)
Millions of young people are getting stoked for Friday's release of Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. BUT some of them almost didn't get a chance to see it.

Ultimately, some cuts were made, and the movie hits theaters Friday with a PG-13 rating.
