Keep your government hands off my medicare!

You know what rots celebrities minds even worse than drugs and Blackberry radiation? Twitter. The website, seemingly designed for people who are desperate for attention, is just making annoying celebrities go from bad to worse.

First, Kanye West after what felt like decades of not being on the site, has finally got himself a Twitter account. On his first day he tweeted over 50 posts, which means I guess that giving that charming-yet-vicious-self promoter Kanye West access to Twitter is a bit like giving Ahmedinejad a nuke: something you will deeply regret.

But that’s only garden variety celebrity craziness. Frequent Twitter-er and shaman Wyclef Jean will announce today on Larry King that he is running for President of his native Haiti. Well it’s nice that he’ll be making that announcement to 1/10,000th the audience of Fox News instead of tweeting. Did Twitter inflate his ego so much he wants to be a president? Perhaps. We’ll just have to wait to see if Lauryn Hill announces she’s running for president of the Sacred Afrotastic Goddess Republic of her garage.

I guess what I am trying to say is that if the modern media freaks out everytime Khloe Kardashian takes a shit, Twitter can only serve to reinforce the idea that each action of a celebrity is exceptional, when it’s not. That’s why I’m voting for President Pras.
