Aside from Bruno Mars, the only other pop star lucky enough to land a song on the soundtrack of the upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 is Christina Perri. And the "Jar of Hearts" singer couldn't be more thrilled -- she's such a Twi-Hard that she has actually Twilight tattoo. She tells MTV, "I got a tattoo on my wrist that says 'bitten,' and it's written in the font of all the book titles. So, yes, I am of one the big, geeky fans."
Christina tells MTV she wasn't sure whether her song, called "A Thousand Years," had made the cut for the album until the track listing was announced on Monday via Twitter. She wrote the song based partly on a screening of the unfinished film that she attended, and partly about her own feelings about the romance between Edward and Bella in the books. She tells MTV, "When we went to watch the screening, they told us to see where there was temporary music added and just jump into those scenes a little harder. But I'm fortunately a fan of the movie and the characters, and I feel like, by reading these books, I can step into that feeling that Edward and Bella have for each other... so [I] sat down, and it it just came out in one afternoon. I feel like it was all meant to happen; I feel like it was all waiting inside me, waiting to come out."
Christina says when she finally attends the movie's premiere in November, "I have a feeling when I'm sitting in the theater with the cast, and the movie comes on and my song happens, that I'm probably at that moment either going to combust with excitement or finally believe it and probably cry a little."
