Like most things on the Internet, it’s pointless and dumb, but in the most hilarious way. More
Topic: social media
While a lot of celebs just haven’t gotten around to it or don’t really care either way, there are some who’ve been vocal about why they stay off Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, et al. A lot of times their reasoning shows that maybe they don’t totally understand how social media, and just the Internet in general, work. More
Are you in the mood to feel extremely paranoid but also highly amused? Well then have I got just the video to satisfy your weirdly specific craving.

You know how celebs are always tweeting things like, “OMG 6,000,000 followers, thnx SOOO much. I have the best Twitter fam evs!” Well, it’s time to call some serious bullshit ‚Äď and not just on the fact that they’re really just two busy to type those extra two letters required to spell a word correctly.

“Like 10% is so smart and awesome and full of great quirky blogs, and then 90% is the diary of a teenager.” In my burgeoning begrudging relationship with Tumblr, I have come to find that this description could not be more apt. And it is that juxtaposition that makes scrolling through my Tumblr dashboard so damn confusing. More

You may have caught a glance of Justin Bieber on the cover of Forbes‚Äė Celebrity 100 issue this month, looking like a bewildered kid in his first suit. And then you may have noticed the caption beside him: Justin Bieber, Venture Capitalist. But this is not the most surprising business story of the year, like Forbes claims. Because Justin Bieber is not a venture capitalist.
Technically speaking, Justin Bieber is providing several startups, including hot music startup Spotify, with venture capital, ie. money aimed at facilitating long-term growth. The idea to get Bieber involved in tech investing came from his manager, Scott Braun aka ‚ÄúScooter,‚ÄĚ who decided to wield Bieber‚Äôs social media power (Bieber has 21 million Twitter followers and 43 million Facebook fans) to invest in something that spoke to Bieber‚Äôs fans: social media. Braun (and Bieber‚Äôs money) went on to invest in a number of early-stage tech startups, including Tinychat, Spotify, and Stamped. The Forbes article points out that these investments are not equity-for-endorsement deals: Bieber, like more traditional tech investors, is investing cash. More
Forbes put out what feels like its 87th list this month with the release of the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. Jennifer Lopez, with her $52 million in earnings in the last year and omnipresent-like quality, topped the list. Six other women including Oprah, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga managed to nab spots in the top 10. According to the Washington Post, this female heavy top tier shows the importance of ‚Äúus ladies in the whole being-famous-and-generating-money business, the sort of significant thing that studio moguls should probably pay attention to.‚ÄĚ More
