Music Stars Who Need A Lesson In Technology

OK, so I think we can all agree that getting a closer look into the lives of our favorite celebrities is pretty awesome. Whether or not we choose to admit it, most of us have that one famous person (or maybe more) who keeps us fascinated with every tiny detail of their life. The wonderful world of Twitter has made it incredibly easy to stay up-to-date—no  paparazzi or gossip magazine required. Celebrities simply share what they want to share, and we eat it up. Sometimes they’ll even respond to their followers and answer their questions! It’s all good fun, except when it’s not. It looks like some celebrities, especially musicians, just aren’t ready for the responsibilities of being famous and having all of this technology right at their fingertips.

Most recently, rapper The Game sent the tweet heard ’round the world, causing so much chaos it almost got him in trouble with the law. His Twitter posted a phone number, telling his close to 600,000 followers that they should call it for an internship opportunity. Well, turns out the phone number was for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and they were not happy; rightfully so, considering their phone lines were jammed for a couple of hours. The Game claims that someone hacked his account, but then went off on a rant about the police, saying “Yall can track down a tweet but cant solve murders !”  The department planned to file a complaint but later decided against it after The Game gave a public apology.

M.I.A. is another celeb who recently took to Twitter, but ended up offending her own fans. In the wake of the London riots, she tweeted that she was “going down to the riots to hand out tea and mars bars”. Fans who follow her on the site replied with upset comments, not happy that she was supporting the violence.

Discourse & Dischord

The Good

Pop stars join “I’m Gonna Be Your Friend” campaign

Famine in East Africa has resulted in millions of starving children, and performers like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears are using their star power to help put a stop to it. As part of Save the Children’s “I’m Gonna Be Your Friend” campaign, these guys will be tweeting info on how you can donate. Or you can cut out the middle man and go here to download an exclusive video to Bob Marley’s “High Tide or Low Tide.” All proceeds will benefit relief efforts in East Africa. Go tell famine to eff off.

“Watch The Throne” expected to sell 500,000 in first week


The richest rapper in the world and his H.A.M. buddy Yeezy delivered their long-anticipated LP, Watch the Throne this week. The record is expected to sell 500,000 its first week, according to Billboard, meaning Jay-Z will likely keep his hip hop heavyweight title for another year. We think they should buy a couple Bob Marley downloads with all that money, don’t you?

The Bad

Kelly Rowland perfects double nip slip

Not to be outdone by Nicki Minaj’s single nip slip on Good Morning America, Kelly Rowland revealed both of hers during a performance in New Jersey. After busting out of her bustier, the singer sent a sheepish tweet to fans, saying, “Hope you enjoyed the show and didn’t mind the peekaboo LOL!!!” We’re sure no one did.

And then this happened

Daniel Edwards, the artist known for his nude sculptures of Britney Spears giving birth and Angelina Jolie breastfeeding, has turned his iconoclastic eye on a new target: lovebirds Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Nice sculpture. It’s missing a tattoo, though.

The Ugly

M.I.A. offers Mars bars and tea to London rioters

Mistress of inflammatory statements, M.I.A. put her foot in it again this week by cheekily tweeting that she was going to hand out Mars bars and tea to rioters in London. It’s clear the singer wants desperately to be anti-establishment, but seriously—rewarding people for their violence? For shame Maya Arulpragasam. For shame.

Gavin DeGraw gets a beat down


Gavin DeGraw was hospitalized this week after being attacked in the wee hours of Monday morning in New York’s East Village. DeGraw suffered a broken nose and facial cuts at the hands of several unknown assailants. “Honestly I don’t remember much, “ he tweeted to concerned fans afterwards. Police have made no arrests, but whoever did it is probably getting a Milky Way from M.I.A.
