Well, that didn’t take very long. In just the last hour or so, a parody Twitter account called @NBCDelayed has popped up that makes pointed fun of NBC’s much-criticized decision to air major Olympic events on a tape delay. Here are some choice examples: READ FULL STORY »

Jimmy Kimmel Live! has become a factory for laugh-out-loud segments that have fun at guests’ expenses. Last night was no different. Celebrities including Kristen Stewart, Justin Bieber, and Snooki read nasty tweets about themselves out loud to the camera.
While some of the tweets targeted stars’ careers — James Van Der Beek’s show Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and Katy Perry’s movie Katy Perry: Part of Me — the funniest ones were personal attacks. Larry King look repulsed as he read, ”Did you know that if you skinned Larry King & ironed out his leather, you could make enough coats to give 1 to every poor child in America?”
Most of the celebs took the insults in stride, but Danny McBride couldn’t quite suppress his anger.

Lindsay Lohan wants to re-make Thelma & Louise – Natural Born Killers style. The 26 -year-old actress tweeted her admiration of The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence’s performance and suggested they team up for a remake of the 1991 thriller. The tweet reads:
“Jennifer Lawrence in ‘The Hunger Games’ is genius. I want to do Thelma&Louise w/her but ala Natural Born Killers (style wise) 2 girls-2 guys”
Unfortunately 21-year-old Lawrence doesn’t have a Twitter account, so a personally tweeted response will not be on the way. Someone else will have to explain to Lohan that adding two guys to the story of Thelma & Louise might detract from the groundbreaking female relationship at the film’s core. I just don’t think that Thelma & Louise & These Two Other Guys has the same ring to it.
Ridley Scott’s Thelma & Louise was a huge hit both critically and commercially with stars Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon each nominated for Best Actress Oscars (eventually both lost out to Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs). Although it’s only the online musings of an ex-guest of the Betty Ford Clinic, a remake of a movie so popular seems redundant, no matter how satisfying it would be to watch Lindsay Lohan drive off a cliff.
Former Saturday Night Live funnyman Jon Lovitz is seemingly continuing to audition for a job as a cable news talking head. The comedian, who’s been a vocal critic of President Obama in the past (most recently calling him a “f—ing a–hole” during a podcast) has taken to — where else? — Twitter to speak out about the President’s recent comments.
“I didn’t build my business, either,” Lovitz tweeted yesterday, along with a photo of the president holding his Nobel Peace Prize with text over the photo reading, “Nobel Peace Prize? You didn’t earn that. Somebody else made that happen.” READ FULL STORY »
On the heels of her racy perfume poster ad release, Lady Gaga tweeted a short film today about the making of the fragrance. Like the promo photo for Fame, the black-and-white short features half-naked men, but it is more elegant perhaps than its print counterpart. (That’s not meant as a commentary on her not appearing in the video.)
Titled ”Formulation,” the French-language short opens in the Haus Laboratories in Paris, before revealing the production of the “first ever black Eau de Parfum” — A.K.A. hot men filling beakers with exotic ingredients like ”tears of belladonna,” and ”crushed heart of tiger orchidea.”
Both the perfume and her next album’s title will be released in September.

Lady Gaga has managed to out-do herself with a perfume ad that makes even her latex outfits seem demure.
The pop star tweeted the ad for her Fame fragrance yesterday, which features tiny men scaling her nude body as she dons nothing more than a mask and the sleek perfume bottle. The photograph, shot by fashion photographer Steven Klein, is accompanied by the tagline ”The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum.”
”i won’t lie I’m a bit nervous. its been a while since i’ve shared some work with you. But i’m so proud of Steven+I, we really did not sleep!” she tweeted before revealing the black-and-white image. READ FULL STORY »
Can you say #BadIdea?
To be fair, the actor has changed his Twitter handle, and it now is @ABFalecbaldwin, for the Alec Baldwin Foundation, supporting the arts. His new Twitter bio says he’s “supporting the arts and artists, amateur and professional” and one of his first new tweets was a link to a New York Times story touting Baldwin’s one million dollar donation to the New York Philharmonic.

Twitter was down. I repeat, Twitter was down! Not even the dreaded Fail Whale was on hand to comfort tweeters when the social-networking site failed to load for somewhere between one and two hours this afternoon. Though Alec Baldwin was probably wringing his hands, other social media sites experienced a bump as a temporary anti-Twitter coalition rejoiced in the site’s folly. READ FULL STORY »
Alec Baldwin got into a scrap with a New York Daily News photographer yesterday, and in the last 24 hours, he has been a real class act. His Twitter has been nothing but charm and goodwill for the media. Oh, who are we kidding? This is the man who brought us WordsWithFriendsGate 2011.
The Twitter outburst started almost immediately, with Baldwin tweeting, “A “photographer” almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning.
#allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded.” He spent an hour attacking Daily News editor Colin Myler and even “the English Queen” herself (our apologies on Baldwin’s behalf, Liz), then posted, “I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over….” Oof!
