Tweets Of The Week
There has been a distinctive lack of beef on the menu this past week; however there was enough entertainment to keep the twitter feed bubbling. It seemed like everyone was content with having a good moan on the celebrity Twittersphere, with Ed Sheeran raging about the weather and Tyler, The Creator venting his frustrations at Usher's new music. Nevertheless, there was still some positives to take within the 140 character limit, as Tinie Tempah headed down to the Prince's Trust Awards and Rihanna debuted her new perfume line in the UK…
@AmandaBynes: I want @drake to murder my vagina - March 22, 2013
Now, I'm pretty sure everybody remembers Amanda Bynes from the Nickelodeon hit 'The Amanda Show', but the actress has reportedly steered off the rails as of late. Last year she was accused of a couple of hit-and-run accidents, had her driver's license suspended, and fled Hollywood for NYC. Now the star has called out Drake... Some may call it a mating call? Drizzy is yet to respond.
@ActionBronson: I rather talk s**t on a rap song than give u some fake deep bulls**t talk that aint even me. - March 20, 2013
Bronsolino is known to be fairly outspoken so it was no surprise that the rapper candidly discussed his style of rap on Twitter this week. Action explained why he'd rather rhyme about a load of rubbish than sell the audience a dream by rapping about things that do not represent who he is as an artist. Is he firing shots perhaps?
@fucktyler: I HOPE JUSTINS NEW STUFF MAKES USHER SAY F**K THIS WEAK ASS TECHNO POP S**T LET ME MAKE ACTUAL MUSIC - March 20, 2013
Tyler, The Creator used his normal capitalized form to vent against Usher's current musical direction. The Odd Future frontman took time out from promoting his forthcoming 'Wolf' album to suggest that should Usher take a page out of his peer’s book, Justin Timberlake. Not a bad shout, I'd love for Usher to go back to his 'Confessions' days.
@ChrisBrown: Success is my only focus - March 23, 2013
Whilst Rihanna is reportedly in the press talking about a future of marriage and kids with Chris Brown, the singer recently tweeted what he is focused on. Breezy is prepping the release of his sixth studio album titled 'X' which is slated for a winter 2013 release - and it seems that success is the only option.
@Rihanna: My fragrance on and they love my smell... #UKnavy you asked for it you got it! My latest fragrance #NUDE is now available in the UK!!!! - March 22, 2013
Is there anything Rihanna can't do? The Roc Nation songstress was just unveiling her clothing line a month ago and now the UK have been treated to her latest fragrance entitled 'Nude'. Whether the title is reference to Rihanna's preferred choice of outerwear we'll never know, however this is just another element to the Rihanna brand to be unleashed on the global market.
@Ducidni: The official album art for INDICUD. Boom! :) pic.twitter.com/cUyt7mL464
The album art represents me. A ball of flames in a rose gold frame. INDICUD - March 26, 2013
Kid Cudi has been talking about his impending 'Indicud' LP for the better part of a year now, and with just under a month to go before the record’s April 23 due date, the G.O.O.D Music artist has released the artwork for the project. The tracklisting of the coveted album was also released online with features from artists including Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky and Too $hort.
@MiguelUnlimited: they don't even recognize real anymore. S**ts foreign - March 22, 2013
Miguel seemed upset that real artists can fail to gain the recognition they deserve, even claiming that it was 'foreign' in the music industry. Well, the 'Adorn' singer shouldn't worry as he has a Grammy to his name and undoubtably released one of the best r&b albums of the year in 2012.
@edsheeran: It seems any outdoor show I end up doing results in torrential downpour. Maybe it's a hint - March 22, 2013
Maybe it's time for Ed Sheeran to invest in a rain mac? The London crooner seemed upset that the weatherman failed to give him the heads up before his outdoor shows, as the singer complained that the heavens always seemed to open during his performances. It's that angelic voice of yours Ed, be thankful!
@Tyga: Tyga - F**k For The Road Ft. @ChrisBrown: http://youtu.be/-FpzMX0W3wM #HotelCaliforniaApril9th - March 25, 2013
Tyga and Chris Brown join forces once again, this time for T-Raw’s latest single 'F**k For The Road'. The single is set to be on Tyga's upcoming album 'Hotel California', which will be released on April 9. The second instalment to the pairs 'Fan of a Fan' mixtape franchise is yet to have a release date.
@tinietempah: Princes Trust Celebrate Success Awards! So many inspirational stories.. congratulations to all the winners and runners up! - March 26, 2013
Tinie Tempah keeps on making inroads not only as a music artist, but as a role model. The London emcee was down at the Prince’s Trust ‘Celebrate Success’ Awards to celebrate the young people who have achieved outstanding results in difficult circumstances.
