10 TWITTER MOMENTS: LIL NAS X BREAKS THE BILLBOARD RECORD
Hello, everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments! I'm pleased to say that the #AgeChallenge died a death even quicker than the #BottleCapChallenge, so you won't find any wrinkly buttfaces in this column this week! What you will find, however, are a number of insightful, humorous, and, in the case of a certain Cardi B, plain freaking gross tweets from our favorite musical celebrities, so without further ado! Let's get going with the following 280-character highlights from Lil Nas X, Solange, Justin Bieber, and plenty more!
LIL NAS X BREAKS THE BILLBOARD RECORD
wow man last year i was sleeping on my sisters floor, had no money, struggling to get plays on my music, suffering from daily headaches, now i’m gay.

HE DID IT! 104,350 remixes, 12,534 cowboy hats, and 1,532 questionable outfit choices later (these are the actual figures), Lil Nas X has finally beat the Billboard record for the longest-running #1 with “Old Town Road!” And let's not forget that he came out in the middle of this wild ride! WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO STAN!
MARIAH CAREY PASSES THE TORCH TO LIL NAS X
Sending love & congrats to @LilNasX on breaking one of the longest running records in music history! We've been blessed to hold this record with a song that means a great deal to @BoyzIIMen and myself and has touched so many. Keep living your best life! pic.twitter.com/3YorLCg3lx

Mariah Carey is a classy legend! No, really, Lil Nas X may have stolen her Billboard record, but it's Mimi who's stolen our hearts with this tweet. Can we also take a moment to appreciate the Photoshop artistry on display here?
CARDI B IS GROSS

EURGH! I appreciate that Cardi B prides herself on being real with her fans and all, but this is the definition of TMI!
PAPA ROACH TROLL TRUMP
CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES, THIS IS MY LAST RESORT https://t.co/AJI0fDRovw
— Papa Roach (@paparoach) 29 July 2019
If you'd have told me in 1999 that, in 20 years, it'd be Papa Roach and Smash Mouth leading the war against the dark forces in this country, I'd have never have believed you. But, HERE WE ARE!
MEGAN THEE STALLION AND RICO NASTY: NAME A MORE ICONIC DUO
— HOT GIRL MEG (@theestallion) 26 July 2019
From Megan's twerking to Rico's awkward dancing, everything about this video is *chef's kiss*. Just one question: WHERE *hand clap* IS *hand clap* THE *hand clap* COLLAB *hand clap*?
MARILYN MANSON VS MAKEUP
I like to get in fights with makeup. Then we make up after. pic.twitter.com/KEBazcfW5c

TIL: Marilyn Manson has a Twitter and also takes makeup inspiration from Lady Gaga circa ARTPOP. THE MORE YOU KNOW!

JUSTIN BIEBER IS BORING
Long day. Gonna relax and watch a movie.
— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) July 25, 2019
Okay, so, you're really telling me that this is the most interesting thing that Justin Bieber, one of the richest and most famous men on the planet, has to tweet about on a Wednesday evening? Like, at least post a picture of Hailey Baldwin or screenshot some Tool lyrics or something!
