At the end of each week, #Top40Tweets lists a cross-section of artists on the current pop charts and puts their tweets on display (along with their current chart number) for your enjoyment/scrutiny. This week, we look at 5 artists on the Billboard Music Charts.
#18 (Hot 100): Avril Lavigne – What the Hell
Worth Following?: Yes. Avril isn’t the most captivating Twitter-personality, but every now and then she throws a curveball like this. I wonder what she got tattooed on her neck. A snake? Yeah, probably a snake.
#89 (Hot 100): Big Sean – My Last feat. Chris Brown
Damn. This is what you call a #gamechanger.
Worth Following?: Yes. You’re gonna wanna hop on this bandwagon early. Big Sean has yet to prove himself, but he’s got some heavy hitters on his side. Does he take his rapping as seriously as he does his personal hygiene? Check out “My Last” and let me know what you think.
#52 (Hot 100): Mike Posner – Bow Chicka Wow Wow feat. Lil Wayne
Funnily enough, being a career musician is in most cases on-level with training for the Thumb Wrestling World Championships, in terms of financial viability.
Worth Following?: Yes. He’s probably one of the wittiest and most charming Pop/R&B songsters on Twitter. #mancrush
#74 (Digital Songs): Nelly – Just A Dream
I can totally imagine a People of Walmart post featuring a dude walking around with a bandaid on his face, and his shirt off.
Worth Following?: Yes. Despite his more mature sound of late, Nelly is still kind of a silly, fun guy. I feel like he might be fun to hang out with. Sorry everyone, I’m getting distracted by thoughts and daydreams of me & Nelly sitting on his tour bus, watching movies on the new flatscreen we bought, eating cheesecake & Fruit Loops, wearing fresh wife-beaters and socks. #justadream
(Uncharted) Kelly Clarkson – All I Ever Wanted
Okay, so I’m kind of breaking the rules here. Kelly Clarkson doesn’t have a song on the Billboard charts right now, but I saw this tweet and knew I had to make an exception. Now, I don’t want to state the obvious, but…
UNLESS SHE BOUGHT THE ORPHANS LAPTOPS, THE IPOD SHUFFLES ARE COMPELTELY USELESS TO THEM. THEY DON’T EVEN COME PRE-LOADED WITH MUSIC. HOLY SHIT, WHY DOES THIS ANNOY ME SO MUCH?
Worth Following?: No. Kelly Clarkson is a boring twit. Leave those orphans alone.
