Twitter Litter: Nelly Eats Cheerios, Rhett Miller Visits Ohio, Miley Kisses a Dog
Getting your celebrity gossip from "TMZ" is soooooo 2009, dude. Each Thursday in "Twitter Litter," RFT Music rounds up the week's best meltdowns, ego battles and WTFness from rockers, rappers and DJs who aren't afraid of a little hashtag action. It's time to take out the trash.
YOU GUYS! We're going to dispense with the pleasantries and get right to the week's biggest news from Twitter: Nelly (@nelly_mo) is in a commercial! For Honey Nut Cheerios! With an animated bee! TO WHOM HE OFFERS A MAKEOVER AND THEN AUTOTUNES LIKE A BOSS!
We're totally going to add "You mean my honey wand?" and "Bee got swag" to our daily utterances. Visit Gut Check for more scoop on Nelly's sweet new Cheerios gig.
Old 97's frontman Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) is visiting his wife's family in Ohio and hilariously livetweeting the entire thing. Some of us here at RFT Music are from the Buckeye State, so we're excited (and somewhat embarrassed) to tell you that everything Miller has been tweeting is accurate:
100 years ago, a family might gather in a salon to share their talents--harpsichord, opera, etc. With my family it's farting. #OhioVacation— Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) August 13, 2013
Burping and bitching about the Browns complete the triathlon.
My wife's cousin is harassing me to "play cornhole" with him. IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY. The customs are very different here. #OhioVacation— Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) August 13, 2013
Just don't play in the dark. Trust us.
Try losing a little weight and going on vacation to Ohio. All anybody asks is, "Are you dying of some disease?" #OhioVacation— Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) August 13, 2013
Unless you weigh at least 230 lbs., you're just not healthy.
Headed to Cedar Point today. Gonna slam some castor oil and ride the Gatekeeper! Try and time my barf for the picture. Holla! #OhioVacation— Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) August 14, 2013
Other popular photo pose options: flashing boobs, licking the ear of your companion or flipping off the camera. Pro tip: Do this stuff while riding the Magnum. The photo people there are most lenient about letting you buy your illicit pics.
I know Erie is a "great lake" or whatever, but if I'm being totally honest, I have to say that it tastes like fish pee. #OhioVacation— Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) August 14, 2013
And not the expensive kind of fish pee, either. #sadface
What possesses a 13 year old boy to wear a shirt that reads: COOL STORY BABE NOW GO MAKE ME A SANDWICH? #OhioVacation— Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) August 14, 2013
Because Ohio, dude. Because Ohio.
Continue for some human-animal tongue action.
