The Silly Old Daniel Celebrity Roundup.

Hiya folks. How long's it been since I've written a celebrity roundup? I'll tell you. It's been fucking ages. You heard right, ages. I'm a bit buzzed off wine and schnapps and that, and earlier me and Kate went to bingo and I won fifty fucking pounds. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? I am basically mint. I recently wrote a thing for Spark magazine online and it was good, and I doubt you've read it, so I am going to copy and paste it over here but PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD REMEMBER THAT I WROTE IT FOR SPARK MAGAZINE FIRST SO IT WAS AWFULLY OUT OF DATE. Right, now that that's sorted, let's have a look at the past week of celebrity tweets in a special Silly Old Daniel Celebrity Roundup...

Twitter has been heralded as a fantastic way for celebrities to communicate with their fans, and for the fans to get an insight into the daily lifestyle of their favourite stars. However, it’s not always positive feedback that celebrities get from the people who follow them on the social networking site as X Factor contestant Cher Lloyd discovered this week. During a showing of My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings (did you watch it? How amazing was it, seriously!) on Tuesday night, the upcoming singer received several insulting messages over the website about her traveller roots, remarks the singer clearly wasn’t willing to take lying down as she posted on her own page:

Meanwhile her fellow X Factor alumni Katie Waissel has called for her fans to boycott a fake Twitter account posing as herself. During Katie’s time on the ITV talent show, the Twitter user started a spoof account under the name “Katie Weasel” sending up Katie’s ruthless attitude and the other contestants in the competition. However, Katie has only just found out about it (it’s one of the most followed accounts in the UK, has she been living under a rock???) and has called for the fake account to be shut down, tweeting:

(LANGUAGE, KATIE! WON’T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN ETC.) The fake account Katie Weasel had this to say:

Ouch. Meanwhile, in an interview with Star magazine (a sure sign her career is going from strength to strength), Katie insisted the bad press that surrounded her time on The X Factor was unjustified and she was edited in a negative light. “The public hated me because they were told to,” she claimed. Of course, it couldn’t have anything to do with her odious personality, could it?

Speaking of odious personalities, did anyone catch Dancing On Ice on Sunday? It was all kicking off between Jason Gardiner and skating coach Karen Barber. I don’t normally watch it, due to it being the most tedious thing on television, but I must admit there’s something about Denise Welch in spandex that has me gripped, and this week something interesting actually happened!

When skating coach (and ex-Olympic skater) Karen Barber challenged a particularly harsh comment made by Jason Gardiner (the idiot in the hat, for those with only a passing interest in the show), he bit back at her, “If your opinion mattered, you’d still be on the panel” which did not go down very well at all and over 3000 complaints were made to ITV about his comments, this prompted him to post a message to his supporters on his own Twitter page:

Lady GaGa had some news about her brand new single Born This Way which caused a massive buzz amongst her fans…

…while Britney Spears also had some news for her fans…

…but the news their idol was working with unfortunately went down like a cup of cold sick amongst Britney fans…

Not quite the reaction Princess BritBrit was hoping for, I presume. It wasn’t just Britney who was keeping her fans in the know, though, as popstar Katy Perry revealed on her own page that thanks to her grueling regime in preparation for her California Dreams tour, she was cutting caffeine out of her diet:

Thankfully it seems coffee giant Starbucks won’t miss the popstar’s custom:

And so, to sum up, anyone who says you can’t put together a news story entirely from tweets is telling you a PACK OF LIES.

Let’s sum up this past week of celebrity tweets with an important message from Diana Vickers:
