The Jackson family may or may not agree, but Elizabeth Taylor has no complaints with This Is It. The long-time friend of Michael Jackson took to her Twitter last night to heap praise upon the upcoming concert rehearsal film. Here are but five of her capsule reviews.
It is the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen. It cements forever Michael’s genius in every aspect of creativity.
You owe it to yourselves and your loved ones to see this again and again. Memorize it and say to yourselves, “I saw genius in my lifetime”
I loved genius in my lifetime. God was so good to me. I will love Michael forever and so will you, if you don’t already.
You see in front of your eyes Michael’s genius blossoming on this piece of film thanks to Kenny Ortega and his crews.
I truly believe this film should be nominated in every category conceivable.
So she liked it, right? Fans will get to judge (and tweet) for themselves when the movie comes out tomorrow.
The great thing about the internet is that Kanye West doesn’t have to leave the house to blow it up. On Sunday night, the rapper posted Once We Were A Fairytale, a bizarre short film directed by Spike Jonze, on his blog. In the clip, Kanye gets drunk, harasses women, has sex, pukes red confetti and cuts a puppet out of his stomach. The little demon promptly kills itself with a tiny sword handed over by Kanye. Weird. But even weirder is that West has yanked his stream of the clip, though copies remain online, only offering “SORRY I HAD TO TAKE IT DOWN :(” as an explanation.
If that wasn’t enough drama for Mr. Imma Let You Finish, Twitter-sparked rumors of his demise in a car crash spread like wildfire this morning, thoroughly pissing off West’ girlfriend, model Amber Rose (via Twitter, typos hers):
This RIPKanyeWest topic is not funny and its NOT TRUE! He has people like myself and his family that love him very much. Its in extreme poor taste to have that as a trendy topic. It’s totally disrespectful to make up a story like this where all human. and we all make mistakes and to say someone died cuz of a mistake is ridiculous. U wouldn’t want someone to say that about u. Or someone u love it’s not funny.
Amber quickly got over the offense, though: “I’ll always ride for my man!!!! I’m bout to get off here and still RIDE for him. LITERALLY. Holla!” Woof. Guess he really is alive and kicking.
Scott Baio is 48 and screaming that fans are trying to destroy him on Twitter. The silliness started when the conservative Baio posted a series of tweets mocking President Barack Obama (“wife calls Obama a ‘s—f—’ and I believe she’s right,” “someone said the best thing about cash for clunkers is, now most of the Obama stickers are GONE!!!!! YES YES YES!!!!!!!”). One fan who complained, Jamie Harrington, received a direct message from the star (“that’s quite alright as I am VERY VERY rich and semi-retired anyway. Family & Golf is what I live for now my dear”), which she then posted on her blog.
More defensive tweets about liberal haters followed from Baio, and Harrington jokingly asked on her blog for Baio to buy her a MacBook Air if he was indeed rich. Baio, taking this as a threat, went nuclear.
“I know ur planning 2 try 2 destroy me as I have ALL of the twitter screenshots you wrote about.”
“I’ve got screenshots/proof you’re trying to hurt me. I WILL SUE U. EXTORT ME U WILL NOT! Plz RT”
“YOU TOLD @whyinthehell THAT YOU NEEDED A NEW PC AND MAYBE U’D GET ME TO OPEN MY WALLET & WORRIED IF I WOULD SUE IF U BLOGGED”
“ALSO TALKED 2@whyinthehell ABOUT IDING BAIO, AND BRAGGED ABOUT F’ING WITH ME, BLOGGING, EXTORTION & HURTING MY REP.”
After reminding readers that the Harrington and her friends “started it,” Baio finally let it go, calling out the “racists” who won’t let Rush Limbaugh buy the Rams and promoting his interview with Glenn Beck. “The truth hurts sometimes, But it will set you free. Rockin & Rollin on the Big ol’ Conservative Bus, Roll on!!” If only @spencerpratt would get in on this.
Zach Braff was supposed to be dead? We must have missed that rumor along with most of the world, but it’s pissed off the actor so much that he made a YouTube video to, er, prove he’s not. The Scrubs star filmed the half angry half amused tirade from the set of the hit TV show to dispel the hoax news that he’d committed suicide, which started when a Twitter feed linked to a fake CNN page.
Zach’s not-dead performance is pretty funny, as he says: “If I was going to do it myself, it do it the way that everyone else would – with pots and pans. He said I died in my 32,000 square foot home in Beverly Hills… I’m not Oprah.” Even better, it ends with Donald Faison singing an R’n’B version of Wing Beneath My Wings. Moving!
“To the douchebag that started this, you win my first ever ‘Douche of the Day’ award for making my mom upset,” Zach adds. What’s more, that “douchebag” has gone on the original page to defend his actions, explaining it was something to fool his friends back in 2007, and wasn’t meant for public consumption, only something happened with the bandwidth etc etc. He ends by optimistically reaching out to Zach via Twitter and Facebook. Got a feeling those friend requests won’t be OK’d, though!
Forget calling Lindsay Lohan a train-wreck – the girl is officially now a tweet-wreck. The puffy-lipped Long Islander pounded out a new rant againstSamantha Ronson‘s family on her Blackberry, accusing them of keeping her and the skinny DJ apart. The best part about her Tweet meltdown is that just a couple hours after freaking out, she messaged Britney Spears and referred to her kids as “beautiful munchichi’s [sic].” At least we think she was talking about Sean and Jayden. Anyhoo, here’s her eloquent and poetic plea for love justice, in it’s proper order:
“@samantharonson doesn’t respond 2me b/c her family will cut her off if she contacts me… They control the one I love & im incapable of making any sort of difference. I’m in love with her, as she is in love with me….but her loved ones – hate her brilliance & resent her happiness.”
Certainly, uber-famous fashion designer Charlotte Ronson and beloved superstar musician/producer Mark Ronson are envious of Sam’s record spinning skills. Yep, that must be it. You figured it out, LiLo! Honestly, we feel for Linds, because clearly she’s desperate to be loved, and especially desperate to be loved by her scrawny sweetheart. But we gotta high five the Ronsons for sensibly stepping in and shutting this one down – and that includes Samantha. The only stupid thing we’ve ever seen the girl do is date a leggings-addicted loony-tune, otherwise she’s a total class act with a sweet job and enviable wardrobe.
And now, a private message in 140 characters to @LindsayLohan: Hey gurl. U need a vacation, a manager, a publicist, a babysitter for your sis, new parents, and some real friends. Call us. We want 2 help. [Photo: GettyImages]
Fans like Billy Ray Cyrus may be bummed that Miley Cyrus has left Twitter, but they can’t say she’s cutting them out of her weblife entirely. The erstwhile Hannah Montana posted a rap video on the subject Friday, complete with back-up dancers. “The reasons are simple/I started tweetin’ about pimples/ I stopped living for moments/ and started living for people.” Wait, it’s wrong to live for other people now? Did Liam Hemsworth give her a copy of Atlas Shrugged?
Worried her video would be perceived as glib by slighted Twitter buddies—or unable to actually get off the damn net—Miley wrote a more serious blog post about the subject on her web page.
You all are the closest thing to my heart & it breaks my spirit to hear that some of you feel neglected since I deleted my twitter…I often complain to the ones closest to me that I don’t seem to have much of a private life any more and part of that is my fault. How can I whine about my life being to public if I am the one telling the world what I am doing? I need to be able to live and learn in private. I never want to quit entertaining it is my life, my love, and my passion but I can’t have my personal life be other peoples entertainment.
This isn’t a personal attack on Twitter is not the only thing I am cutting back on. This is not an attack against this particular site, I just think kids all over the world could maybe take a little vacation from Cyberspace.
That’s all well and fine for kids, Miley. But what about Dads worried they’re losing their daughter’s ear to some Aussie stud of a co-star? How long before Billy Ray sits in front of his web cam singing “Butterfly Kisses” as a response to your YouTube?
Billy Ray Cyrus has taken to his Twitter to hound daughter Miley about returning to the messaging service. While we obviously sympathize, there is just so much wrong about this.
Miley. You are a light in a world of darkness. You were born”Destiny Hope Cyrus” for a reason.You can’t leave everyone now.We r countin on u.
I understand “it is true one bad apple spoils the bunch”.But listen to the words of your songs “Stand… for what ya believe in”…Remember?
First off, if the issue that she’s not on Twitter anymore, so why write to her on Twitter? Does he assume she checks his page? Second, while any dad loves to embarrass his daughter, shouldn’t he be bringing up her full name and song lyrics at the kitchen table rather than on a website? And third, if your biggest beef with your kid is that she no longer wants to expose her inner thoughts online, consider yourself incredibly lucky. And shave off that damn soul patch—you’re almost 50.
First Miley Cyrus, now another of our favorite celebrity Tweeters have quit sharing with us. Lily Allen signed off on her page September 28th posting, “I am a neo-Luddite, goodbye,” and hasn’t updated since. The musician/actress/we’ve lost it now had been getting lots of abuse for her stance on illegal file-sharing and now seems to have called it a day completely.
Shame! Her apparent quitting of the site comes soon after she mentioned her boyfriend Sam didn’t like her constant updating – has Lily chosen her man over milllons of strangers hanging off her every Tweet? Chuh. She needs to get her priorities straight.
Say it ain’t so! Miley Cyrus has retired from Twitter, and over a stupid boy! “FYI Liam doesn’t have a Twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason,” wrote the singer before deleting her page, submitting to the wishes of Liam Hemsworth, her alleged new boyfriend and definite co-star in The Last Song. Even if #mileycomeback fails to win her over, we’ll bet she’ll run crying back to the message service once this Aussie hunk is out of her system. Until then, let’s look back at some of her greatest tweets.
Miley, The Gay Rights Crusader: “jesus loves you AND your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! thats like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz hes gay and that is WRONG and very sad! like i said everyone deserves to be happy.”
Miley, The Hater Hater: “people that are so okay with being so hateful diguist me and need to spend last time on a gossip website and more time a. reading your bible b. reading stories/articles about what happens when cyber abuse and name calling happens…oh and ps if your thighs don’t jiggle go see a doctor. thanks.”
Miley, The Sympathetic Dumper: “Tears are words the heart can’t express. Why does saying goodbye hurt so much? Life will go on. You will smile again…we will smile again.”
Miley, The Frustrated Ex: “Yeah. I love when people mistake bravery with writing a few stupid tweets trying to make it seem like they don’t care. You’re afraid to love.”
Miley, The REALLY Frustrated Ex: “Everything IS ok. Honestly. I can’t change you’re mind and your heart no longer belongs to me. Maybe YOU’RE the one pretending you’re fine. Why do I continue to torture myself?”
Miley, The Perfect Daughter: “Good morning everyone. Life is good. I am laying in bed with my mommy right now scratching her bug bites.”
