Harry Potter wins, for Twilight is idiotic and annoying and promotes paedophilia, with Edward being over 50-100 years older than Bella. They also sparkle, which is a huge turn off. The cast of the Harry Potter sega all adore the books, while the cast of Twilight all hate Twilight. The books now need fancy covers with red pages to attract readers, while Harry Potter's fame and known amazingness attracts people instantly. Harry Potter has sold over 450 million copies, and been translated into 67 different languages, and final four books consecutively set records as the fastest selling book series of all time and has won many, many MANY awards, while Twilight has only sold 116 million books, and been translated into 38 languages.

Then for the next thirty years he established himself as the “King of Pop” ("Bio True Story", 2012). With lifelong fame and stardom came bourdons ("Bio True Story", 2012).

Lil Wayne is one of the few lyrical geniuses in the rap game that can move people with his verses. “Hustler Musik” and “Shooter” were also songs that I loved that reached the top of the charts.
