10 Twitter Moments

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments. A whole lot has gone down on our favorite social media over the last week, although one tweet that you definitely won't be seeing here is Donald Trump's 280-character love letter to Kanye West. Depressing sh*t, I know, but at least we might get another 1975 song out of it! Anyhoo, if you're looking for some Hump Day entertainment while you wait for the weekend to roll around, fingers 'n' thumbs at the ready, as it's time for you to scroll through the following Twitter highlights from Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Nicki Minaj, Charli XCX, and more.

CARDI B-OWEL MOVEMENT

Make no mistake, I LOVE how open Cardi B is with her fans on Twitter, but sometimes she can be a little TOO honest! LOL! Jokes aside, I have two words for Cardi and all other people suffering with this plane pooping problem: COURTESY. FLUSH. Trust me, this technique has quite literally saved my ass on several occasions.

 

ARIANA GRANDE AND PETE DAVIDSON ARE KIND OF CUTE, I GUESS

Okay, so, I'm sure that I'm not the only person who's sick to the stomach of seeing Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson making out all over their social media feeds, but even have to admit that this video of Pete listing his five favorite songs from Ariana's forthcoming fourth album Sweetener is actually kind of...cute? PS: ONLY TWO DAYS TO GO, ARIANATORS!

 

BRANDYN BURNETTE BECOMES EMAN8

I've been a fan and supporter of Brandyn Burnette for as long as I can remember, although things are all set to change in September, when the neo-soul singer will start releasing music under the name EMAN8. It goes without saying that I'm HELLAH excited to see what this next chapter in Brandyn's musical evolution is due to bring, but in the meantime, feel free to find me over here listening to the Cosmos & Creature frontman's recent collaboration with Viceroy, the EXCELLENT “1999.”

 

YOUR SMITH, MY SMITH, OUR SMITH

Me literally every time that We Are: The Guard favorite Your Smith sings, tweets, or does basically anything:

 

WEEZER'S RIVERS CUOMO NEEDS FORTNITE FRIENDS

CC: Ninja. I mean, it's cool streaming yourself playing with Drake, Dillon Francis, Chance the Rapper, and all of these other rap and EDM stars, but how about giving Weezer's Rivers Cuomo a moment in the spotlight? Hey, it's not like he's a FEMALE or anything!

 

TYSM AND FELIX SNOW TEASE ALBUM

OMG! The cutest couple in all of glitch pop are going to be releasing a collaborative album, and I'm not sure if my body is ready? Oh, what am I talking about? IT WAS BORN READY!

my body is ready 

 

SNAIL MAIL <3 MITSKI

As someone who's listened to Mitski's “Nobody” more than they care to mention, I can definitely relate to this tweet from Snail Mail. I mean, who needs Mamma Mia! 2 when Mitski's latest single is giving us all of the ABBA vibes? For real, though, nothing makes me happier than to see my indie queens supporting my indie queens. How about a collaboration, your royal highnesses?

 

NICKI MINAJ DISCUSSES “BARBIE DREAMS”

Ha ha, whatever you say, Nicki! “Barbie Dreams” is straight-up SAVAGE! Don't get me wrong, though, I'm HERE for the evisceration of every male rapper in the game! I'm not sure that the same can be said for Drake, however, who's rumored to have cried himself to sleep ever since #Queen dropped. #FeelsBadMan

 

CHARLI XCX HAS THE BEST LIFE ADVICE

CAN I GET AN AMEN? No, really, when Charli XCX isn't busy releasing the greatest pop music of the 21st century (facts are facts, don't @ me), she's out here offering her fans top-quality advice like this on Twitter. Haters are gonna hate, so what's the point of giving them the time of day? Just ignore them and go ahead and live your best life, preferably while listening to “Girls Night Out” at maximum volume.

 

SEND NUDES, JESSE SAINT JOHN

2014's Map to the Stars, a satirical drama film directed by David Cronenberg, produced by Saïd Ben Saïd, Martin Katz, and Michel Merkt, and starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, and Evan Bird. A “cult classic,” you might say... Now, where's my prize, Jesse? ;)
