Online dating sites have a new competitor now, because this bit of news is going to give hopefuls new heart. Holly Madison has revealed she met her new boyfriend Jack Barakat on Twitter. Because there’s nothing like finding love in a 140 characters or less amidst thousands of followers.
Holly’s Twitter account was the site of their burning romance and she reveals, “We met through a mutual friend and then somehow somebody retweeted something funny he said on Twitter. So I started following him, and then we started Tweeting each other back and forth!” Hey, who are we to judge, right? Because we’re trying really hard not to. Things progressed to the real world quickly and we’re hoping only after she figured out he wasn’t a stalker or a psycho. “So then we started direct messaging each other and then exchanged numbers. We were texting for months, and finally when I had my vacation, I was like, ‘Do you wanna come out hang out with me?’ And he did and we hit it off right away” she added. Not judging. Must.Not.Judge. But she invited him on her vacation? Seriously?
Anyway, they look happy together. But then everyone looks happy on TV shows because they have to. You’ll be seeing plenty of him on her show Holly’s World in case you want the lowdown on their relationship. Here’s hoping you guys have moved on from micro-conversation and emoticons!

Our collective efforts to let Kanye West be great continue to fail, you guys. If Twitter is any indication, Kanye West is on the defensive after his Britney Spears joke. Cracked West on Friday, “Yo Britney, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time!” After Britney’s manager Adam Leber called the rapper out as condescending, Kanye scrambled to explain. “When I said the comment about Brittney I was giving her props for being #1 not dissing her at all!,” West claimed. “As pop stars we’re all in this shit together! We on the inside of the TV!” If Kanye actually thinks he’s inside of a TV, that explains the last two or three years of his career.
Maybe it’s time for West to branch out into a new media, perhaps one that isn’t tweet-based? According to Media Takeout, Kanye has signed on to play a gay jazz player in a period film set in 1939. “Kanye has signed on to do some acting, in a flick about a GAY jazz band in 1939. He plays a GAY band member, and there is EXPLICIT gay sex in this movie,” says their anonymous source. “The script won 9 awards, so i think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good. The Oscars Academy has this thing called the nicholl, a competition for screenplays, and the script for the movie won there twice, so I guess that means it will be one of those oscar films. It isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the typical hood movie rappers do.” Hmm, there sure are a lot of random capitalization in that leakÃ¢â‚¬Â¦maybe enough to make it legit? We would definitely see this film, though someone might have to cut Kanye’s lines down to 140 characters at a time.
Who would’ve thought that these two would ever be in the same photo – or the same anything – together? But here’s it is, Justin Bieber and Angelina Jolie posing together at the red carper at the 2011 Golden Globes. The Biebs saw Angie on the red carpet and like any self-respecting male, had to ask for an autograph. Angelina agreed, and even though this could be a wax statue of the actress, she looked lovely. Seriously Angie, won’t hurt you to move some facial muscles and not look like a fembot?
A purple shades wearing Bieber tweeted the photo writing, “Angelina Jolie with @Justinbieber and 3D#purpleglasses oh yeahhhhh”. He totally was imaging her as Lara Croft, right? In 3D? That would be something.
Woah. Kim Kardashian tweeted this picture from a photo shoot and wrote, “Photo shoot time! @JasonofBH jewels and red lips! #2sexy2tweet?” With the likes of Coco around, there’s nothing too sexy to tweet. But we’ll have to hand it to to Kim for upping the smoldering stakes. We’re not being prudes, are we? That is a hell of a lot of skin, right? Ms. Kardashian seems most comfortable taking it off these days. Remember her W Magazine cover? Taking it off voluntarily, we mean. That sex tape business is a whole other ballgame.
The photo shoot’s for Jason Arasheben, FYI. His twitter account says he’s a “Purveyor of Lavish Diamond Luxuries”. And now he’s a purveyor of a half-naked Kim. Hash tag: win.
Rihanna never sticks with a hairstyle long, so we’re glad she let paparazzi capture her bangs for posterity at the Clippers/Heat game last night. The singer tweeted last night that she just shot her first American Vogue cover shoot with Annie Liebowitz, too—so this look might get even more exposure. See more pics of Rihanna—and Clippers’ no. 1 fan Jessica Alba—in the gallery below.
Gah! Our eyes! It’s pint-sized Snooki, mini-Situation and little J-Woww! Luckily, this isn’t for real. At least we hope so. All we know is the JWoww tweeted this picture of these tiny guidettes and guido, writing, “Omg lol classic RT @HannahNeverman: love this. @sn00ki @ITSTHESITUATION@JENNIWOWW”
We’re thinking it’s a very late Halloween picture by a fan or friend? ‘Cause these kids are adorable. We can’t have them fist-pumping or getting their GTL on at this age.
Jessica Simpson‘s publicist , Lauren Auslander, tweeted this alarming picture of the singer, writing, “Hey @JessicaSimpson nice new ‘do for 2011“. Luckily, the crazylady-Elizabethan era look is just for a shoot.
We get spoiled with famous people like Kanye West who seem to have Twitter connected directly to their brains. Turns out some British celebs have tweets sent directly from their wallets. Authorities are now targeting stars like Lily Allen and Elizabeth Hurley for using Twitter to advertise products without their fans knowing about it. The Office of Fair Trading in the U.K. are calling these pay-for-tweet partnerships “deceptive” to the celebs’ many followers. So, whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the likelihood Courtney Love has just been selling extra-strength crazy pills this whole time?
Apparently current consumer protection laws require spokespeople to identify which of their tweets are product-placement versus those that are personal. “People shouldn’t be misled. If someone has been paid to advertise a product they should declare it. It’s not specific to celebrities,” the OFT explains. Violating the law can mean a hefty fine. Hurley tweeted just last week about products by Estee Lauder, for which she is a long-time spokeperson. “If your skin is dry from too much central heating, try Estee Lauder’s Hydrationist serum. Just used for first time & it’s divine,” the actress wrote, while Allen has given shout-outs to Grey Goose vodka. We can believe how devious this is! We’re going to unfollow all celebrities just as soon as we finish putting on this moisturizer and drinking this martini. Wait a minute…
Marlon Wayans cut his finger partying with his brother Shawn in Uruguay last night, and despite the bikini babes they were spotted with earlier, apparently no one was there to kiss and make it better. The Little Man actor put garish photos of the injury on his Twitter account, culminating in a bloody shot of the unbandaged finger. “Hurts like a bitch. Taking yall thru my pain. Left handed!” Apparently not satisfied with the brutal photos, he noted “My biggest concern is HOW DO I WIPE MY ASS??? ArgggGh!” You still got it, Marl!
See the source of Marlon’s agony in the gallery below.
Ice-T’s wife, Coco‘s definition of what people do during the week is a bit skewed. We’re not sure regular people hang out half-naked using various home appliances as props. Do they? Are we missing out on something here? Coco tweeted out a message recently, that reads, “Just me lounging on my kitchen counter top. Doesn’t everybody do that? Happy Thong Thursday!” To illustrate her point she also tweeted this picture (shown above), where she’s indeed making use of her kitchen counter, albeit in a slightly disturbing way.
Considering her proclivity to wear similarly stringed bikinis and barely-there catsuits, we’d say this is just another regular day for Coco. Nothing we haven’t seen before.
