God bless Twitter – the site we have to thank for daily inane ramblings from Britney, Kanye, Gaga, Lily and a host of other celebrities keen to let the world know what they just had for breakfast. Or what new bag they just bought. Or why they hate that other twat on Twitter.
From one perspective it’s enthralling: gone are the barriers between musicans and fans. A good thing, surely.
From another angle it’s celebrity culture gone into overdrive. Privacy, glamour and mystique cease to exist. Our own lives inadvertantly slip into reading egotistical drivel in spare moments.
Sure, you have to follow someone to get their updates, and NME is as active on Twitter as anyone (@NMEmagazine; though we do try and stick to news headlines, rather than “just ate another egg!! LOL!).
But sometimes, just sometimes, Twitter becomes an entertainment goldmine. Some of you may have noticed that 50 Cent’s Twitter account has ‘changed direction slightly’ in recent weeks.
Going from normal, possibly PR controlled Tweets like these…
“Everybody Make sure you check me out on “The View” Tomorrow!!! http://ning.it/9IKq3e“
“On set with @lloydbanks at his video shoot for “Any girl” Featuring Lloyd !! http://i28.tinypic.com/35aryaf.jpg“
And even adverts like this…
“How do you turn 50cent into $5? http://bit.ly/bG7lIp RIDICULOUS deals every day (Ad)”
To utterly bonkers insights into his cartoonesque penis-brain, like these:
“I’m hungry but I don’t know what I want to eatI want me some chicken no some fish noI just want some pussy I’m not hungry any more”
ROFL!! He crazy!
So far, there’s been no suggestion by 50 Cent, his management or label that his account has been hacked.
Here then, are the ten most astonishing moments from 50 Cent’s Tweets, or in hash tag form #PRfailorpossiblehacking. Enjoy…
