One Direction fans hate Perez Hilton

Normally, a story about Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus unfollowing Perez Hilton over something he said would fill me with schadenfreudian glee. Well, actually, it still does, but here’s the thing: a couple days ago, Perez posted a video of one of those One Direction kids inviting a girl back to his room, even though he actually has a girlfriend. And because Perez exposed the dumbass as an alleged cheater, all his friends jumped ship. Go fig. IBT reports …

Perez Hilton posted a video of British boy band One Direction’s Zayn Malik, 19, allegedly asking a girl to come back to his hotel room in half an hour. Malik, however, has a girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, who was not the girl in the video.

The video was taken by a female who was staying in the same hotel as Malik. Shortly before the video was posted on the gossip site, the One Direction singer deleted his Twitter account, leaving behind five million followers.

"The reason i don’t tweet as much as i use to, is because I’m sick of all the useless opinions and hate that i get daily goodbye twitter," he wrote.

"One Direction’s Zayn Malik DELETES His Twitter! Called it! I said he’d be the first to leave 1D! This is the beginning (sic)," Hilton tweeted after Malik deleted his account. His tweet drew backlash from One Direction fans.

You know, the weird thing is, Perez was almost right. Almost. And I never thought I would say that. If he just sat back and said, “You know what? No. The guy had a girlfriend, and he invited someone back to his room. All I did was post the video. I have every right to call people out for being assholes rather than constantly kiss their asses,” I would have sided with him. I know, weird. But instead, he just went with “People are paying attention to me! I was right! Yay!” Ugh, seriously. You were so close to getting it for once, and then you completely didn’t.

UPDATE: Zayn Malik is back on Twitter after a mere twenty-four hour break.

Yes, Kim Kardashian, we get it …

I swear, every couple of days Kim Kardashian will post a pic of herself in a bikini, then mumble something about, “Look! No Photoshop! Weeeee!” And it’s just like ugh, we get it, not every single one of your pictures are retouched. Just most of them. I mean, what, are we supposed to applaud you because you have tons of time to hit the gym, access to a dietitian and a personal trainer, plus enough money to to nip and tuck your body into whatever shape you want? Good for you girl! You didn’t earn that body so much as your parents paid for it. Quit acting like that’s some kind of a life achievement.

Deadmau5 vs. Playmate Tricia Evans

We’re not going to delve too far into talking about the tragic massacre in Colorado, mostly because that is a pit of darkness and evil that is well outside of our area of expertise. Throw us an idiot celebrity and ask us to make a dick joke? Awesome. But someone walking into a crowded movie theater full of men, women and children and that’s … that’s pure evil, no matter how you cut it. Well apparently, Playboy model Tricia Evans does not have the same code of ethics as us, so she decided that it would be hilarious to tell a joke that, even in any other setting, would have just been terrible, and was promptly admonished by Deadmau5 over Twitter. Via The Hollywood Reporter:

"I heard the new Batman movie is really ‘to die for’!" she wrote after news broke of the rampage at a Dark Knight Rises screening that claimed 12 lives and left dozens wounded. Added Evans: “Too soon?” Deadmau5’s response: “good to know @HollywoodTricia i seriously had no idea how big of a shit you are. unfollowed.” The musician’s tweet appears to have been deleted from his Twitter page, but has been screengrabbed via the Huffpo. On Friday, Deadmau5 also wrote: “my thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families in Colorado during this most troublesome time. :\ such senselessness.” Meanwhile, Evans — facing a barrage of outraged tweets from critics — has been on the defense, writing: “Most of the people I’ve heard from r walking, talking bags of shit & deadmau5 is the moral police. LOL.”

I like how Tricia thinks that she can defend herself not by backing up what she said with an intelligent opinion or by trying to clarify the intent behind her joke, but by summarily writing off her critics as wrong because they don’t agree with her. I also like how those defending her are only doing so because she’s hot, and because she’s “an opinionated woman”, as some Twitter followers put it. Here’s the thing: I work in both comedy and adult-entertainment, so I know what the difference is between calling a sex-positive woman an idiot because she’s a sex-positive woman (wrong) and calling a sex-positive woman an idiot because she’s an idiot (completely fair assessment). So I can say with a clear conscience and complete assurance that Tricia has all the tact of popping an erection during the eulogy at your mother’s funeral, and has all the humor and intelligence of a back alley lobotomy.

Woody Allen’s son slammed him on Father’s Day

I didn’t intend for this afternoon to become a list of ways for famous people to mentally and emotionally ruin their kids forever, but sometimes this is just what happens. Anyway, on Father’s Day, Woody Allen's son Ronan Farrow (age 24) took to Twitter to basically remind everyone about that time his Dad hilariously dumped his mom Mia Farrow to date his own adopted step-daughter Soon-Yi Previn. Oh Woody, you rascal you! With your crazy borderline incestuous pedophilia! What will he think of next? The New York Post reports:

“Happy father’s day — or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law’s day,” Farrow posted via Twitter on Sunday, in an apparent dig at his dad for marrying Soon-Yi Previn, Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter and Ronan’s step-sister. Mia Farrow then re-tweeted her son’s message, adding, “BOOM” for emphasis. Ronan’s tweet quickly became a sensation on the social networking site: British socialite Jemima Kahn dubbed it, “Tweet of the Year,” and The Office star Mindy Kaling responded, “daaaamn Ronan.”

To some of you, that might seem cold, but try to imagine coming home one day and finding out that your Dad left your Mom so that he can spend the rest of his life banging your adopted underage sister. Now imagine going to school until you’ve honed your skill into a fine, bitter edge, and using it to decimate your father. This is what is known in comedy circles as “OH MY GOD BURN MOTHERFUCKER!”

Dominic Monaghan: Matthew Fox beats women

Normally when celebrities get into it on Twitter, it’s usually a harmless little misunderstanding and everyone forgets about it because the whole thing was pretty stupid to begin with. This is not one of those cases. After a fan asked Dominic Monaghan to convince his Lost co-star Matthew Fox to join Twitter, Dominic laid into Matthew in one of the most astonishingly ballsy social media take-downs ever. Via Jezebel:

Becca wrote: “holla at matthew fox and tell him to get a twitter i beg of you” Monaghan’s reply? he beats women. No thanks.

Wait, you might think, drinking is one thing, but just because he hit a woman once doesn’t mean he does it all the time! That was Becca’s train of thought. She replied to Monaghan in all caps: “I KNOW IT WAS WRONG BUT WHAT?! WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE GOOD TIMES YOU HAD TOGETHER?!”

Monaghan responded: how do you know we ever did?you don’t know either of us.he beats women.not isolated incidents.often.not interested.

Not isolated incidents. That’s a bold statement, for which there are no publicly recorded charges.

As Monaghan was answering questions on Twitter in an effort to promote his new documentary series Wild Things, Becca wasn’t the only one reading his tweets. A Lost fan going by the user name of Fate 815 snapped, “Spreading an accusation that EVEN eww-TMZ didn’t make… How classy. Hope Matthew Fox sues you for defamation.” And continued: “He knows nothing, he’s just spreading rumors based on TMZ (!), hates Matthew Fox for personal reasons & bashes him.” Another fan sighed, “I loved Dom but he just lost so much respect from me.”

As for Monaghan, who is not exactly known for talking shit about people, these were last words (on Twitter, anyhow) on the subject:

It’s very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth.

If this is true — and it has to be, otherwise Monaghan just dug his own grave — bravo America on once again saying it’s completely okay to be abusive as long as you’re attractive and famous. And another big congratulations for assuming that you know more about someone than a guy who actually worked closely with him, because you saw them on a TV show together. This is why paint cans have warning labels telling you not to drink them.

Jose Canseco: The new Charlie Sheen?

While everyone else was busy freaking out over Kim Kardashian possibly running to be the Mayor of Glendale, or Amanda Bynes slowly turning into Lindsay Lohan's messy doppelgänger, former MLB player Jose Canseco decided to make a public splash via yet another bizarre meltdown on Twitter, after he was caught sending flirty (and creepy) direct messages. Basically, imagine Charlie Sheen, only instead of intelligence and drugs, Jose has aimless anger and an Internet connection.

Nicki Minaj deleted her Twitter account!

To be honest, I kind of figured that Twitter feuds were really only for indie musicians and gay porn stars! Am I the only one who would pay to see Jayden Grey and Wavves get into a bitch fit? Make this happen, Internet. Yet every once in a while, a mainstream star will get into a snit, as demonstrated by Nicki Minaj who deleted her Twitter account after a fan site was accused of leaking her music. MTV reports:

The Barbz have gone mad. On Sunday (April 15), Nicki Minaj deactivated her Twitter account leaving millions of her fans and followers awaiting her comeback— but that may not happen. After getting into a Twitter tiff with some of her followers, Nicki pulled the plug on her account. “Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good fucking bye,” she wrote. before vanishing from the social networking site.

Minutes before, Nicki had vowed to get rid of the account after she blocked a fan site that she accused of posting leaked music. The offending site, is also down, stripped of all of it’s content with only the word “closed” posted. Instead of their Barbie-related content, the site just plays the somber sounding Dear Old Nicki in a loop. The track which appeared on Minaj’s 2010 debut is rather appropriate. On it she raps to her former self: “And tell me that you coming back that you just took a break/Maybe I blamed you for everything, that was my mistake.”

All right, here’s the thing: I know people really love getting stuff for free and all. That being said, if you’re going to be a fan of someone’s music and kiss their ass, it might be best if you didn’t, oh I don’t know, steal their stuff. It’s basic courtesy on that one: If you really like an artist, don’t take all their shit and put it on the web for millions of people to grab for free.

Frances Bean: Twitter should ban my mother!

We’ve seen a recent rise in the amount of crazy that Courtney Love has allowed to spill out of her head, either because she fired the one person reigning her in and keeping her from posting insane libel on the web, or everyone around just decided that it would be hilarious to give someone who destroyed their brains with drugs an open mic. Anyway, after she accused Dave Grohl of sleeping with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain because of some sort of weird psycho-sexual thing for Kurt Cobain, Frances went on the record to ask Twitter to ban her mom for being crazy. Billboard reports:

Frances Cobain is calling for a Twitter ban on mother Courtney Love after a Wednesday rant that alleged Dave Grohl had made a pass at the 19-year-old.

"While I’m generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn," Cobain said in a statement. "I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way.  I’m in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother."

As much as I think Frances Bean has a point in wanting her Mom to stop spreading lies about her, I don’t think she can really have Twitter ban her mother for being crazy. Hell, if you banned crazy people from Twitter, I think you’d have all of 1,000 people left. And then how would I be able to watch indie musicians, drag queens and gay porn stars fight with each other over the web? I couldn’t. And that would be terrible.
