The Rick Perry presidential campaign, summed up in one Tweet:
50 Cent is nothing if not self-ware.
Always a more complex individual than you might think, the star has grown morose lately, at least according to dispatches sent out over his Twitter account.
“I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer,” Fiddy told his nearly 5.5 million followers. Well, that doesn't sound uplifting. His rationale for such a statement?
”I’m good if I die tonight," he said, although he went on to assure fans in a later tweet that he's alright: “To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal.”
Shortly before that, 50 had lamented, “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on,” alluding to the troubles he and his label Interscope have been having.
“I have nothing left to say. I will not be promoting my music.”
That and Chelsea Handler reportedly shot him down. Brutal!
Of course, Mr. Cent, who “took 25 cent water and sold it for $2” as VitaminWater, does have a new entrepreneurial pursuit: his new six-hour energy drink, Street King!
Suck it, Five Hour Energy. And cheer up, 50.
Politicians (or at least interns with access to official campaign accounts) need to fall in line with the rest of celebrity culture and talk trash on Twitter more often.
On a night in which he finished a strong third after the hotly-contested Iowa caucus results were tabulated, Ron Paul took a hilarious shot at Jon Huntsman online.
Paul personally did not write this, but someone with access to his Twitter did, and the campaign even owned up to it, rather than use the "hacking" defense. Look:
Huntsman, the former Utah governor who skipped Iowa to focus on next week's primary in New Hampshire, has been hitting Paul in the latter state in recent days.
Paul's campaign hasn't engaged him directly, but they clearly noticed.
The Tweet was nixed shortly after it posted, but Paul spokesman Gary Howard said it was mistakenly deleted and was later re-posted. He told Politico the following:
"I think someone mistakenly deleted it. I think our IT guy didn't know it was being tweeted when he saw it, thought someone hacked it. But it wasn't hacked."
"It was our tweet. We said what we wanted to say."
Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller said in response:
"We find it odd that Congressman Paul would attack Gov. Huntsman in such a childish fashion. Just the latest in a long line of odd statements from him."
Game on in New Hampshire, gentlemen!
Beware, Twitter users. Courtney Stodden is on the prowl again.
The talentless 17-year old - who made headlines in 2011 for marrying a 51-year old actor and never not flaunting her cleavage - posted the following photo on her social networking account today, along with a caption that reads:
Come get down & dirty w/me while we floor flash together! I showed you mine... now show me yours. I'll RT the hottest!
Stodden has frequently taken to Twitter and shared her supposedly seductive thoughts.
The floor above, meanwhile, has reported a burning sensation every time it pees.
Revelers everywhere celebrated New Year's Eve watching Dick Clark attempt a countdown, listening to music, drinking champagne or, in some cases, kissing Lady Gaga.
Injured Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, meanwhile, spent Saturday night in the hospital. That's no fun, but at least he had a sense of humor about it.
The perennial fantasy football stud wrecked his knee in the Vikings' win over Washington on Christmas Eve, ending his season. He had successful knee surgery Friday.
That meant celebrating New Year's in bed, but Peterson was still in a festive mood:
Hopefully the hospital staff let Adrian enjoy that ice cream. Give the guy a break!
Rumors about Beyonce giving birth are currently blowing up Twitter, but have yet to be confirmed by the singer, husband Jay-Z, or any reputable source for that matter.
So ... there you are.
The (very possibly made-up) consensus seems to be that Beyonce welcomed a girl into the world this week, and that the little bundle of joy is named Tiana-May Carter.
Twitter makes up cute names at least.
The rumors we've read online - again, these are just rumors from social media, not even celebrity gossip sources - say she was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in New York City, and overnight, word spread that she had delivered a daughter.
Multiple outlets have picked up the story, but all cited the growing buzz on Twitter as the source and nothing more. She's due in February, so it's probably baseless chatter at this point, but also not impossible for her to give birth early.
Twitter also made Jon Bon Jovi dead recently. At least this is a nicer rumor.
Either way, the final countdown, which began after Beyonce's pregnancy reveal at the MTV VMAs, to the birth of the most famous celebrity babies in years is either over, or close to being over. We'll keep you posted as we learn more!
Chris Brown. Rihanna.
Fairly or not, these two music stars will be forever linked by a hot romance that ended in a highly publicized 2009 assault that Chris later pleaded guilty to.
In the nearly three years since, regardless of what the public thinks, the two are on good terms - or at least neutral terms - and putting it behind them.
Both have nothing but supportive words, seeking to downplay the incident and move on. But has the tumultuous relationship now struck up again?
Yesterday, Breezy posted, "Love U more than u know!"
Two minutes later, Ri said, "I'll always love you #1love."
Coincidence? Maybe, but two minutes later?
Rihanna has defended why she even follows Brown on Twitter and has shared that she's still a "fan" of his and "excited" for his comeback, which we can see.
But it makes you wonder. Are they rekindling a romance or are they just unrelated? If they were directed at someone else, why not Tweet at them? So odd.
Then there's this:
Earlier, Brown's mom tweeted, "HELLO LADY I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU!!!!! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!" Rihanna tweeted shortly after, "Miss+Love u 2"

Original American Idol Kelly Clarkson made a surprise endorsement in the 2012 Republican presidential race last night, throwing her support behind Ron Paul.
This did not go over well with some fans.
“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance,” she wrote of the candidate. “If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”
Many of Clarkson’s 925,000 followers took issue with her support for the Texan, citing the alleged racism and homophobia of Paul's old newsletters.
“That’s because you willfully ignoring his voting record, his statements, interviews, newsletters, and policy positions,” one follower Tweeted at her.
“You are obviously living under a rock. I don’t even live in the United States and hear about his stupidity,” Tweeted another fan from abroad.
Clarkson tried to maintain calm, responding: “I am about progress. Ron Paul is about letting people decide, not the government. I am for this.”
Miley Cyrus, we know you're looking to clean up your image, but this is ridiculous!
The young singer/actress Tweeted a photo today of her, sister Brandi and friend Denika hanging out at a laundromat, with Miley in a hamper and also in a holiday mood.
“I hope everyone has a merry xmas," Miley wrote along with the photo. "2 make it more special try 2 spend every second w the ones u love & dont take their QT away by tweeting! Its x-mas make sure everyone you love knows how much.”
Well said, Miles.
Living, breathing rocker and New Year's Eve star Jon Bon Jovi showed off his physique on a family Christmas vacation, while reading Bill Clinton's latest book. Nice.
As you can see, the Internet hoax that proclaimed Jon Bon Jovi dead earlier this month was B.S. - helpfully cleared up by the singer himself - and thank goodness.
What kind of person actually starts a Twitter hoax to kill off Bon Jovi, you ask? Well, we now know, as the person responsible for starting the rumor confessed!
Pennsylvania musician Jeffrey Goho told the Asbury Park Press (N.J.) he started up the fake Twitter account in mid-December with the intention of offing Jon Bon.
He reported that the "Wanted Dead or Alive" singer passed away on tour in his native New Jersey. Since then, "I've gotten a lot of backlash from it," he says.
Stunning news right there. Goho recalls how it got started:
"All I heard was 'Bon Jovi this,' 'Bon Jovi starting a restaurant.' The Advil commercial. It was like, 'Jeez, (Bon Jovi) was a household name due to music, not business."
"Long story short, [my band and I] got so worked up in the conversation, I just kind of took the liberty and started (the rumor), because I was so irritated."
Makes sense. Totally worth fake killing someone over.
