Twitter Litter: Nelly Eats Cheerios, Rhett Miller Visits Ohio, Miley Kisses a Dog

Posted By on Thu, Aug 15, 2013 at 11:30 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.

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:

Burping and bitching about the Browns complete the triathlon.

Just don't play in the dark. Trust us.

Unless you weigh at least 230 lbs., you're just not healthy.

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.

And not the expensive kind of fish pee, either. #sadface

Because Ohio, dude. Because Ohio.

Continue for some human-animal tongue action.


We nearly piss ourselves when a celebrity of any worth follows us, but we think Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) is setting his own excitement bar a little too low:

That don't impress us much.


This weekend, Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) tried in vain to plug up low-quality leaks of "Applause," the first single from her forthcoming album Artpop. Alas, Teh Interwebz were too powerful, and Mama Monster ended up releasing and selling the full version of the song through proper channels a week early. Cher (@cher), Bob Mackie's favorite Barbie doll, lovedlovedloved it, so Gaga blessed her with these words:



Speaking of drag queen idols, RuPaul (@rupaul) put out a few PSAs this week:

The more you know.


When you're out on the road as often as musicians are, coming home to a furry friend can be key to forgetting missed verses and wardrobe malfunctions. Mike Doughty (@mike_doughty_) and Ke$ha (@keshasuxx) proudly show off their pets' attributes, while Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) looks a bit too happy to be swapping spit with her pooch:

We'll cop to feeling a little puppy love ourselves, now.


Hometown hero Murphy Lee (@murphderrty) shows off his STL pride, but even he's got limits:

And we can't get out of here without a little sump' sump':

Attaboy, Murph.
