Twitter Litter: Ke$ha's Penis Necklace and Fake-Beyonce's Carrot Addiction

Posted By on Thu, Aug 8, 2013 at 9:32 AM


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.

When you open yourself up to teh Twitterz, there's a risk that someone will find you powerful or amusing enough to devote a parody account to you. St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster Mike Shannon, the "Nomi Malone" character from Showgirls and even RFT editor in chief Tom Finkel have experienced the curse of the double (via @fakemikeshannon, @realnomimalone and @realtfink, respectively). We get it; imitation is the highest form of flattery and all that jazz. But sometimes the worship is a little crazier than that, isn't it -- especially when celebrities mock other celebrities for a spell? Just look at Diplo:


Diplo (@diplo) apparently has decided that he'd like to be Beyonce when he grows up. The DJ has taken Bey's name for his Twitter profile and has been talking up the vegetable that dancers seem to love:

Well, carrots certainly are one way to keep Beyonce's mile-long legs in shape, so we'll confess to believing for .075 seconds that Bey really did say this. Diplo's next tweet, though... well...

Come on, Diplo, Beyonce's not going to stumble naked through her mansion when she's clearly buying clothes and accessories from Target.


We at RFT Music are suckers for smarties, and Jon Wurster (@jonwurster) of the Mountain Goats and Superchunk doesn't let us down:

Is there anything hotter than a guy who appreciates good grammar? No, there is not.



Everyone has a hard-on for Ke$ha's (@keshasuxx) favorite piece of jewelry, and our cherished AutoTuned weirdo shows her excitement with hearts:

Don't tell anyone, but we can't wait to wear Ke$ha's penis around our neck:



The guys in They Might Be Giants (@tmbg) love the best things ever. Exhibit A:

And Exhibit B:

We're trying to figure out a way to become BFFs with the Johns and be invited over for TV marathons and Trivial Pursuit. Any ideas?


Do you know what "family" means within the gay community? Ed Droste (@edwarddroste) of Grizzly Bear didn't, but he's now part of the club thanks to a random woman:

And knowing is half the battle.


Finally, your hometown hero Murphy Lee (@murphderrty) goes old-school on your asses:

Think Murph will take requests? Tweet your favorite songs to us, and we'll see if the Derrty one will Instagram that shit!

Got a favorite musical freak to follow on Twitter? Let us know at @rftmusic or @ambabka. Tag your tweet with #RFTtwitterlitter.

Follow RFT Music on Twitter or Facebook. Follow RFT Music editor Daniel Hill on Twitter too, if you are into that sort of thing.
