Chris Brown and Tila Tequila are falling back on bad habits. Unbeknownst to the LA Times, who published a profile of the Shot Of Love star discussing her departure from Twitter this weekend, Tequila has opened a new account on the service, confirming it on her website. “I am starting over. Starting FRESH! This page is gonna be a LOT more fun anyway!” So no more describing potential miscarriages as they happen, then?
While the prodigious poster has avoided that kind of drama, she can still find ways to infuriate gawkers. Upon discovering that fellow Twitter exile Brown has also returned to the forum, Tequila declared “I support you Breezy!!!…U deserve it boo!” despite previously announcing she would “pop him in the face for being such a f—ing arrogant —hole” and comparing him to footballer Shawne Merriman, the alleged ex-boyfriend she accused of abuse. Despite having begged for support in a phone message for fans last week, Brown has yet to acknowledge his new friend.

Chris Brown just called to say he loves you….and that he’s really desperate. In a remarkably pleading message left on his SayNow account, the Graffiti singer pleaded for fans to get him back on the radio. “I never really did this…I need all of my fans’ help. All the fans that I have, I need your help. A lot of radio stations aren’t playing my records…they are not being that supportive and I wouldn’t expect them to. It’s on the fans, and what you guys do in your power to bring me back. That’s all I need is you guys and nothing else will do that, except for the fans.”
Though vaguely reaffirming his continuing regret over beating Rihanna last year (“I don’t know what else I can do…I’m doing everything I need to do, I’m doing me as a person, I’m a better guy”), Brown suggests he can’t survive off good intentions alone. “It won’t be possible [to continue] if I’m not relevant on the radio and it won’t be possible for me to be an artist if I don’t have any support…I can’t be an underground mixtape artist, heh.” Like how Jon Gosselin can’t get a normal job? After Chris’ expletive-filled Twitter meltdown last December, we’re surprised his handlers are cool with him having access to a service like this. Next time you’re feeling unappreciated, dude—call your mom.

No, Lindsay Lohan isn’t doing a Pirates Of The Caribbean sketch with Fred Armisen on SNL tomorrow. The chipped fashionplate was just hanging out with Christian Dior designer pal John Galliano earlier today at Paris Fashion Week. Sadly, LiLo reportedly arrived too late to take a front row seat alongside Jared Leto and Charlize Theron at the Dior show itself, with security sending her back to her hotel to sulk instead.
This embarrassment comes painfully soon after word that her debut celebrity DJ gig Wednesday failed to please the party people at London’s Sketch. “Lindsay was clearly struggling to play the set on her own and had to ask [DJ Gareth Geno] for help. She seemed like a total drunken, incoherent mess…It was really embarrassing to watch. You could tell she didn’t didn’t know what she was doing.” Adding insult to injury, Geno’s assistance was taken as proof of a love connection by the eager beavers at the Mirror (who also say she screamed “Dance! I feel like I’m in a f—ing zoo!” at the gawking crowd). Lindsay dismissed the rumors in a since-deleted tweet (“I’m NOT dating him. lies lies lies.”), but it sounds like such gossip is the least of her problems. Check out shots from her European adventures below.

God bless Twitter. When Axl Rose and Kurt Cobain faced off at the MTV Music Awards almost twenty years ago, the stars were left to stew in their juices following the night’s feud. But following a public shouting match at last week’s NME Awards, Lily Allen is free to post grotesque twitpics of Courtney Love at Milan Fashion Week, while Love responds with, well…she can speak for herself.
oh @ tweeted that pic? thats just baby brat nonsense we are NOT having a” FUED” WOULDNT DEIGN TO post a pic of her thighs…but im not the one on gak every night dear, you are, and im not the one who uses the word “relevant” to reassure meselfALWAYS…your really a brat, is there anyone who you havent started a meaningless strop with? the night you did all the blow on earth…the night you home invaded me did all the blow ive ever seen in my home wouldnt leave and blamed ME for yr s— show?thighs?…But then again i dont pick fights with insanely deluded irrevelant friendless unatractive children who noone i know even close to likes.
Love then posted several unflattering pics of Allen circa 2008 (Love digs deep!), retweeted some supporters, called the 24-year-old singer a “feral woofy dog,” and said Allen doesn’t have an exclusive deal with Chanel—Love’s earlier accusation that kicked off this mess—because she’s “too plump” (that’s right, two critically hailed artists are having fight online over which one is ugly and which one is fat). Allen has yet to respond to Love’s unending-as-of-our-posting stream of bile (“whata sad baby, retire already so you can stop picking fights with everyone for no reason, ps tip, nme awards not venue to dress filmstar”) but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time.

Last night our Twitter feed was abuzz with the glorious news: Conan O’Brien, heroic leader of comedy dorks everywhere, had joined Twitter. Everyone RT!!! NBC’s rejected late night host was only packing around 7000 followers last night at 8PM EST, but this morning that group has grown to 243,981 fans. The guy’s only got one tweet up so far, but it’s hilarious and perfect and made of diamonds and butterflies: “Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me.”
Conan originally bashed Twitter on “The Tonight Show” (oh, remember the good ol’ days?!) but he seems to have jumped on board, if only for one reason: to beat Jay Leno. In less than 24 hours, Conan skyrocketed past Jay’s measly 30,000 Twitter fans with his growing army of Twittering Team Conan members. If Jay’s corporate-looking page with boring show updates doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about the dude, then what good is Twitter for, really? @Coco 4-ever! #weloveConan.

After last week’s cryptic tweets about intense stomach pain (followed suddenly by celebration over an impeding Russian adoption), many wondered if the reportedly pregnant Tila Tequila had suffered a miscarriage. Thanks in part to an e-mail she allegedly sent to a prankster pretending to be a Japanese magazine editor, some wondered if she was ever pregnant in the first place. Now the internet pin-up says she’s not only got a kid in the oven, but that she’s marrying the anonymous sperm donor. Here are some three-eyed fish plucked from the toxic stream that is her Twitter:
I spoke 2 my baby dada 2day & he says hes 100! wants 2 marry me. So I figured, life is short. Y not jus marry the man who loves me & my baby…When I get back from tour, he & I are getting tatoo’s 2gether, then I keep doing my job, but once belly starts getting big, Im movin 2 Texas…YES IM STILL PREGNANT! YES I HAVE DECIDED TO MARRY THE FATHER OF MY CHILD! YES I AM STILL TRYING TO ADOPT A BABY FROM RUSSIA! THERE! NITE!
Tila, who was engaged to the late Casey Johnson at the time of her death less than two months ago, says she’s unable to explain her announcements, lest they capture the attention of the media. “I promise when the time is right & I feel that its safe, I will one day answer ALL of ur questions about my mysterious life right now. <3…I dont wannbe the cause of my children, bio-logical Children& husband to get hounded by media. I want 2 protect them frm wut I been through.” But who will protect them from her?

While Lisa Rinna probably isn’t the first mom to say Heidi Montag‘s cosmetic surgery binge was a bad influence on teenage girls, Rinna might be the first mom to do so behind a pair of artificially plumped limps. “I will tell you I had to take [Heidi's People] cover off before it came in the house,” Rinna told Fancast last weekend. “We have two girls. I don’t think it is something you want to bring in the house and say, ‘Oh, look.’…Obviously, we are raising two young girls. Anything that has to do with weight issues, I think you just have to be really careful…I mean, you know – to each his own, is all I will say.” Don’t worry, you can’t actually OD on irony.
At the very least aware some people think she’s a hypocrite, Rinna gave a half-hearted apology on Twitter. “I apologize to Miss Montag if my words were taken and used against her in the press. I did not slam her or her surgeries for the record.” Hmm…maybe she just pulled off the cover so her kids wouldn’t think massive cosmetic overhauls were newsworthy.

It’s a good thing Tila Tequila‘s retirement from Twitter lasted less than 24 hours – imagine if she had to write a whole blog post while having a potential miscarriage? Everyone’s favorite attention addict dropped some distressing tweets concerning her alleged pregnancy yesterday: “Just woke up in the middle of the night cuz im having these intense sharp pains in my belly. it hurts so much that Im crying wtf.” Wtf, indeed, as explained she was still planning to take a plane to Australia for a concert (“The hospital says if it gets worse I need to go back and see them but how?? I have to go to Australia today…”). Refusing to take an ambulance (“I HATE AMBULANCE! They call all the paparazzi’s & its so invasive & everyone all up in my business”), Tila continued to describe her excruciating pain to her fans (“its like sharp knife stabbing pains thats unbearable =(…Im going 2 pray 4 my lil Angel in so much pain right now Im gonna see if I have any advil or something but I cant even walk it hurts so bad!“) as she waited for her private doctor (SHE DOES NOT ALLOW PAPARAZZIS TO HER OFFICE!!!!”).
Thankfully, a phone call came to take her mind off her pained, pregnant belly. “Ok are you ready for this??? I just got off the phone with the adoption agency I’ve been working with for a while and guess what???????????” she tweeted an hour after her last pain-induced frown emoticon. “I have been APPROVED to adopt my own baby boy 2-3 years old from RUSSIA!!!! I will be his Mommy by the end of the year!!” Two hours after that good news, she was back to her old ways, posting links to a “super duper sexy milf photoshoot video” and waxing poetic about this 2-year-old Russian child named Jayden awaiting her tender, loving care (“I woke up today depressed sick & in pain. But then I got that phone call and it changed my life! IM SO HAPPY! MY LITTLE GUY! Aww he so cute!”). By the time she skipped off to her Aussie-bound plane as pictured above, she declared Monday “the happiest day of my life.” And what about the baby allegedly nside her, you ask? Sorry, guys, that’s really none of your business.

John Mayer gave an apology on both Twitter and on stage for dropping the N-bomb in his Playboy interview, but GLAAD would like to see another of the singer’s other poor word choices be acknowledged as well. Along with describing his white supremacist genitalia and Jessica Simpson‘s “sexual napalm,” Mayer let a bad word slide when he recalled a tongue bath he once gave to Perez Hilton. “It was New YearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Eve and I decided to go out and destroy myself…I remember seeing Perez Hilton flitting about this club and acting as though he had just invented homosexuality. All of a sudden I thought, I can outgay this guy right now. I grabbed him and gave him the dirtiest, tongue-iest kiss I have ever put on anybody—almost as if I hated f–s…I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think my mouth was even touching when I was tongue kissing him, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how disgusting this kiss was. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a little ashamed.” Just a little?
GLAAD responded to his anecdote on their blog. “Just as Mayer indicated in his apology, that he meant no offense in his use of the racist slur, we hope the intent behind his use of the F-word was not malicious. As a public figure with millions of fans, Mayer should be more cognizant of the impact his casual use of both slurs can have…As a talented musician who has made comments supportive of the LGBT community in the past, we expect more from John Mayer and ask that he apologize.Ã¢â‚¬Â John hasn’t tweeted since Wednesday’s mea culpas…will he come back to acknowledge everyone else he pissed off?
