Kelly Osbourne vs. Little Monsters
There are certain celebrity fan bases that you don’t want to mess with: Beliebers, Directioners, Little Monsters, etc. Kelly Osbourne has learned this the hard way since she accused Lady Gaga of being disrespectful on Fashion Police. Lady Gaga’s fans, aka Little Monsters, have been attacking her on Twitter ever since.
In an episode discussing the Grammy Awards, Osbourne said, “Being part of the music industry is walking the red carpet. You say hello to your fans and you give back to those reporters and those people who supported you. And when you go to an awards show and you don’t walk the red carpet, I find that disrespectful.”
Since the comment, Osbourne has received tremendous backlash from Lady Gaga’s fans. Little Monsters have been attacking her via Twitter, sending death threats, calling her fat and ugly, and saying they hope she kills herself or gets raped.
Osbourne is very active on Twitter and has been responding to quite a few tweets about this and once referred to Little Monsters as “bullies”. She has set the record straight that she is a huge Gaga fan and knows that not all of the Little Monsters are bullies, especially as some are defending her to fellow Gaga fans.
Chris Brown vents, “dies”, wishes RiRi a happy birthday, and releases collaboration
Whaddaya know, Chris Brown got mad and took to Twitter to vent…again. After his Grammy performance got very mixed reviews on Twitter, he went there himself to address his critics, which included Miranda Lambert and Michelle Branch.
He lashed out at them in a series of tweets which have since been deleted, ending with one saying “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F*** OFF!”
In response to his tantrum, Twitter users decided to make him “die” on Twitter. #RIPChrisBrown and other similar hashtags were trending on Wednesday.
But then yesterday, Brown surprised us all by tweeting Rihanna (aka Robyn Fenty) to wish her a happy birthday. Anything having to do with his previous relationship with her is usually a very touchy subject for Brown and has even been the subject of past Twitter tantrums. But the two recently collaborated on remixes of Brown’s ‘Turn Up the Music’ and Rihanna’s ‘Birthday Cake’. They released the remixes on Twitter yesterday:

If you haven’t heard of Linsanity or Jeremy Lin, you probably haven’t spent much time on the Web recently, because it’s getting hard to not hear about him. But just in case, Jeremy Lin is an Asian-American basketball player that plays for the New York Knicks and led them to quite a winning streak (which ended last night against the New Jersey Nets).
The hype surrounding Lin, especially on social media, is astonishing. People want to see and share everything about him. A picture of the couch he used to crash on went viral and his old YouTube videos (see “How to Get Into Harvard”) and Xanga posts from when he was in high school have resurfaced. Check out this “Linfographic” for more about #Linsanity on Twitter.
Do you think the Linsanity will continue now that his winning streak is over? Do you want it to?
