From Kendall Jenner To Rihanna: 10 Celebrity Tweets That Prove 2012 Was A Simpler Time
Back when life was simple and everyone was obsessed with Twilight.
Even though the Mayan calendar had us all thinking that the world might genuinely implode by the time December rolled around, 2012 was actually a pretty chill time to be living, breathing, and firing off pretty weird social-media updates.
From the time Niall Horan first introduced himself to Kylie Jenner to the time Paris Hilton shared her one rule in life, we’ve gathered up the most bizarre celeb tweets over the course of twelve months.
Let's get checking out Sophie, Olivia and Lateysha talking sex for That’s What She Said...
That time Lady Gaga informed Carly Rae Jepsen she was coming for her crown
If you don’t recall, 2012 was that Summer where you couldn’t do a single thing without hearing ‘Call Me Maybe’ blasting out of someone’s car stereo. While it provided us all with a failsafe and culturally relevant chat-up line, poor Lady Gaga was raging it broke one of her records.
When Cher felt bad about hurting a fan’s feelings
In probably one of the most iconic tweets Cher has ever fired off, she organised a global search party to track down the account with a “white egg shape and light blue background” that she personally offended.
When Donald Trump spent his days tweeting about the Twilight cast
Before becoming the President of the United States, Donald Trump had a lot of thoughts about whether Robert Pattinson should take back Kristen Stewart after she was pictured kissing a married director.
When Kendall and Kylie Jenner became BFFs with Niall Horan
We can’t even figure out what’s going on here, but the 21st December 2012 will forever go down as the time Niall first made contact with the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and probably put the groundwork into place for Kendall to date bandmember, Harry Styles.
When Zayn Malik had some wise words to share about life
Always the most introspective of the band, Zayn took to his social-media profile to point out that human condition is beyond weird. In fairness, he does make a good point.
When Kendall Jenner flirted with Kylie’s ex-boyfriend Cody Simpson
It was the relationship that just wasn’t meant to be, but that didn’t stop sister Kendall from publicly complimenting the Australian singer on his growing biceps.
When Rihanna had some controversial hide-and-seek advice
It was definitely the time of vague but ultimately well-intentioned advice. RiRi's profile was essentially a self-help guide packed full of uplifting quotes, none more relevant than her advice: “Don’t hide from who you are.”
When Paris Hilton revealed that we should all follow this one rule
Before Paris became the unexpected meme Queen of 2017, she announced that the only thing important in this life is to be fun and look camera-ready 24/7.
When Diplo totally agreed with Miley Cyrus’s comment about creeps
Proving that he wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to crack a good joke, Diplo replied to Miley’s comment about “creepy people,” with the perfect, completely non-creepy response: “hey.”
When Nicole Richie was following all the wrong people on Instagram
Yes, Instagram was already a thing back in 2012, and all people ever did on it was upload pictures of their food. Unfortunately for Nicole, not everyone had particularly high standards.
Hey, she might be onto something.
