TWITTER QUOTE OF THE DAY: DJ TREVOR NELSON

“I really don’t want to feel the pressure of saying good morning to you lot everyday.” [Source] BBC Radio 1 / 1xtra personality DJ Trevor Nelson can’t seem to handle the pressures of  being a Y-list  UK “celebrity” and what’s expected of him. Poor Trevor.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: LADY GAGA

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina”. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Lady Gaga talks about losing her “creativity” while engaging in sexual intercourse. The singer also admitted to occasionally taking cocaine (I suspect she snorts every day), but doesn’t want her fans to do it. I can’t decide whether she’s trying to be controversial/funny or just a born idiot.

Via The Lala Report Is Cassie still making music? Or have they just included her because she’s in a relationship with Diddy? And the talented Janelle Monae is featured on the front cover, but why isn’t her name also listed on the left-hand side of the cover?

ALL I CAN DO IS LAUGH: KANYE WEST SETS UP TWITTER ACCOUNT

It’s just been brought to my attention that rapper Kanye West has apparently set up his very own Twitter account. I find this news extremely funny because last year Kanye was very vocal in his dislike of Twitter and wrote on his website, “DON’T HAVE A F****** TWITTER… WHY WOULD I USE TWITTER??? I ONLY BLOG 5 PERCENT OF WHAT I’M UP TO IN THE FIRST PLACE. I’M ACTUALLY SLOW DELIVERING CONTENT BECAUSE I’M TOO BUSY ACTUALLY BUSY BEING CREATIVE MOST OF THE TIME AND IF []

UK EVENT: SINGER SHARDINAY SET TO PERFORM AT THE SUNDAY SHOW

This is complete and utter insanity! Last week I featured UK “artist” Shardinay on Mad News and now the “singer” is fast becoming an Internet sensation… for the WRONG reasons!!! However this doesn’t seem to matter to some folk, because Shardinay has now been booked to perform at the popular event The Sunday Show which takes place every weekend in London. Now I’m beginning to think that Shardinay is a comedian pretending to be a serious artist, the Sunday Show promoters are []
