10 TWITTER MOMENTS: TAYLOR SWIFT'S KITTY IS A QUARANTINE VIBE
Don't get me wrong – I'm a Twitter addict at the best of times. One thing I never saw coming, however, was just how important social media would become over these last few weeks. With quarantine measures in place throughout the world, it feels like everyone is turning to the bird app for a bit of human contact. And that includes famous musicians. Consequently, even though we're miles – and in some cases, oceans – apart, in many ways, it feels like we're closer than ever. No, really – Cardi B is basically my auntie at this point. With another Wednesday of BLAH ahead of us, then, let's check in with We Are: The Guard's 10 Twitter Moments, featuring Taylor Swift, Shakira, Halsey, and others!!!
TAYLOR SWIFT'S KITTY IS A QUARANTINE VIBE

The potbelly. The piercing stare into the void. The complete and absolute lack of f*cks given. Miss. Olivia Benson Swift is such a quarantine mood it isn't even funny.
P.S. We see you, “22” reference!

WE MUST PROTECT GRIMES AT ALL COSTS
ppl make fun of my big nose and weird face but I think it’s cool to be strange. Took me a while to figure out how to make makeup look good cuz regular tricks don’t work. But I’m grateful to be oddly designed. pic.twitter.com/Nr6PIiVxQ5

Erm, excuse me? There are people who make fun of Grimes? LET ME AT 'EM, QUEEN!
SHAKIRA IS AN ANCIENT PHILOSOPHER NOW
I just graduated from my 4 week Ancient Philosophy course with the University of Pennsylvania (@Penn). I know... my hobbies are very impractical, but it took a lot of hours after the kids were asleep. Thank you Plato and predecessors for all the "fun" over the past month! pic.twitter.com/cFTCXDjliX

Me in quarantine: *Eats an entire box of Pop-Tarts* *Naps* *Briefly considers taking a shower but eats another entire box of Pop-Tarts instead* *Naps*
Shakira in quarantine: *BECOMES AN ANCIENT PHILOSOPHER*

BLINK-182'S TOM DELONGE HAS FINALLY PROVED ALIENS REALLY DO EXIST
With today’s events and articles on my and @TTSAcademy’s efforts to get the US Gov to start the grand conversation, I want to thank every share holder at To The Stars for believing in us. Next, we plan on pursuing the technology, finding more answers and telling the stories.

That moment when Tom DeLonge finally convinces the government to publish video footage proving UFOs are real and it's not even the most insane thing to happen this 2020. Alexa, play “Aliens Exist” by blink-182.

Do you mean to tell me I'm in lockdown resembling what I can only describe as a whole-ass tub of cookie dough while Miss. Ashley Nicolette Frangipane is out here looking like THIS? Something tells me I need to up my quarantine game ASAP!
Sidenote: Is anyone else getting Rizzo vibes from this?
not to be a cottagecore queer on the TL but like...I am.

— Oliver Tree (@Olivertree) April 22, 2020
With salons closed throughout the world, many of us are having to take haircutting into our own hands. And while I appreciate Oliver Tree trying to help fans achieve his signature bowl cut in quarantine, this video should come with a warning: DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDS!
