But considering a guy in Egypt really did name his firstborn “Facebook” — to commemorate the role social media played in 2011′s Egyptian revolution — anything’s possible.
So watch out, celebrities: Normals have seen and raised you in the poker game that is bizarre baby namery. If you want to continue dominating the table, you’ll have to up the ante. Uma Thurman might be able to give you some ideas.
Please do not adjust your computer screen. You are, in fact, seeing a photo that looks an awful lot like a shirtless Chris Brown lying facedown on Rihanna’s bed. How do we know it’s Rihanna’s bed? Because the star posted the photo to Instagram on Saturday, accompanying it with this caption: “Dis n–……. #BartObsessed.” (Note the image of Bart Simpson under the dude’s head.)
Rihanna couldn’t have been paying attention to Brown’s Twitter page this weekend, considering Brown spent a good chunk of time Sunday getting into a vulgar tweetspat with writer/comedian Jenny Johnson. (Johnson, by her own admission, has made a hobby out of poking fun at Brown via Twitter.)
Brown’s side of the exchange isn’t online anymore, since he apparently deleted his Twitter page after the brawl. Still, Johnson’s retweets show the progression of their argument, from instigation to culmination. Warning: This language isn’t really safe for anywhere.
Anderson Cooper has had it up to here with random Twitter users questioning his reporting and accusing him of being biased. Though CNN’s silveriest fox is currently dodging bombs in explosion-ravaged Gaza, he’s still finding time to write sassy replies to those who have been tweeting criticisms at him — users like self-professed “social butterfly” and “chocololic” Pamela Weiss, who asked Cooper why he hasn’t been “report[ing] facts” about “the rockets being fired FROM Gaza?!?”:

Feud alert! CNN Newsroom host Don Lemon and Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill — man, isn’t it still a little weird to see “Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill”? — got into a virtual pissing match yesterday. And while Hill has deleted his half of their heated exchange, plenty of sources had already copied what they said before the original tweets disappeared into the ether.
It all began when Lemon complained that Hill had been rude to him in a hotel. “Said hi to @jonahhill in hotel. Think he thought i was bellman. Didn’t know his name til bellman told me. A lesson to always be kind.” When a follower asked Lemon to clarify what had happened, Lemon resorted to name calling: “He [Hill] was a tool.”
In a tweet that’s since disappeared, Hill shot back at Lemon: “I said hi. What do you want me to do, move in with you? I was in a hurry. Didn’t realize you were a 12 year old girl. Peace.” Whoa — way harsh, Tai. Here’s Lemon’s response: READ FULL STORY
The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the sheer chaos of everything in between — election night in the U.S. is a mixture of emotions for all those politically engaged, and celebrities are just like us, except (sometimes) wittier, and often with a few zillion more Twitter followers. Here are some of our favorite posts of the night, from celebs including Zooey Deschanel (a substitute for no New Girl tonight) to CNN anchor Anderson Cooper to Patricia Heaton and Bill Maher. Some are cracking jokes, others are dead serious. We’ll be updating as the night goes on, so check ‘em out below and post any fun tweets you want to share in the comments!
Is Aaron Sorkin capable of completing a sentence using 140 characters or fewer? Has he perfected the art of walking and tweeting at the same time? Find out by following the TV vet’s brand new Twitter account, which EW can confirm is the real deal. (He joined the site last Friday; blame Sandy for us not reporting this important news sooner.)
Ricky Martin is still “livin’ la vida loca.”
The bangin’ singer-turned-Broadway star tweeted a pantsless picture of himself over the weekend (your treat for the day) after auctioning off his trousers to benefit the nonprofit AIDS fundraising organization Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. You know what that means, right? You can finally get into Ricky Martin’s pants!
