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 6 artists on the Billboard Music Charts.
#14: Katy Perry – The One That Got Away
The TRUTH will set you free.
— Katy Perry (@katyperry) February 10, 2012
That’s a pretty austere tweet for someone who signs her divorce papers with a smiley face:
FUN FACT: Katy is re-releasing Teenage Dream on March 13th, and in preparation she’s teasing an unreleased single that didn’t make the original album cut:
(Uncharted) Ludacris – My Chick Bad
The new way to throw 1′s in the strip club…. lockerz.com/s/182294702
— Ludacris (@Ludacris) February 10, 2012
It’s all good until one of the strippers takes one of those things in the eye, falls, and breaks her collarbone.
FUN FACT: According to his IMDB Trivia page (reliable source, I know) Ludacris still drives a 1992 Acura, because it “keeps him grounded.”
(Uncharted) Keri Hilson – Knocks You Down
I’m doin it!!!! DREAM IN COLOR. And when that dream comes true, don’t forget to thank your angels!!!
— Keri Hilson (@KeriHilson) February 10, 2012
Sounds like the chanting mantra of some weird cult. “Dream in colour, thank your angels. Dream in colour, thank your angels.”
FUN FACT: Before hitting it big with her solo career, Keri Hilson paid the bills as a back-up vocalist and a songwriter. She co-wrote a slew of hits before she had her own record out, including “Gimme More” by Britney Spears.
#24: David Guetta feat. Usher – Without You
Shortest man in history. :-) I had nothing to do with him writing his name that way. BabyUsha Luv it yfrog.com/oe2q7moj
— Usher Raymond IV (@UsherRaymondIV) February 9, 2012
Even Baby Usher won’t sugar coat how short his Dad is. “I’m 5’2 and a half with the right pair of shoes, son.”
FUN FACT: I was being mean, earlier. Usher is actually 5’8″.
#141 (Billboard Hot 200): Mac Miller – Blue Slide Park
its funny how the internet allowed everybody to lead two separate lives. you can be a janitor by day and a philosopher by night #swag
— Mac Miller (@MacMiller) February 8, 2012
Or maybe a rapper by day, and an observational comedian by night?
