Social networking is a great tool to expand your brand and keep in touch with your fans when you’re a big time celeb (or want to be one), so it’s no surprise that mostly everyone in showbiz under the age of 30 is all over Twitter, sharing tidbits about their everyday lives, getting into feuds with fellow artists and/or hateful fans and quite often making us cringe.
When Justin Bieber was named the most followed person on Twitter last year, some people wondered how that could be. Well, I’ll tell you how: nearly half of his followers are from fake accounts. Ta da! Fake accounts are deemed such when they are following fewer than 50 people, have 1 or fewer followers and who have never tweeted. Justin’s fake count clocks in at an impressive 45% – impressively sad, that is.
Check out this infographic (I love infographics!):
Oh, snap! Even Katy Perry and Lady GaGa are doing better than the Biebs. No surprise, of course – you’d have to be a robot (or 12) to think Justin has anything worthwhile to say. He’s the worst. So, what do you say? Do you follow Justin? Which stars DO you follow? Do any of them actually have anything interesting to say?

While John Mayer goes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to wax poetic about the difficulty of romantic relationships after break-ups, Katy Perry apparently goes to Madagascar with UNICEF in order to draw attention to the plight of children in the company. While there, she visited a child protection facility and also participated in the promotion of positive hygiene and sanitation through hand washing. Sounds… fun? But definitely important, so good for her.
Here’s what Katy had to say about the experience:
“In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages, and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life – nutrition, sanitation, and protection against rape and abuse – which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide.
“I am grateful to UNICEF for giving me the opportunity to see first-hand how their programs make a real difference in children’s lives. Support for UNICEF is saving children, I am a witness to it.”
Say what you will about Katy Perry (so long as it’s positive – I love her!), but it’s nice to see someone who’d rather work through her shit by going to see those less fortunate and helping where possible rather than doing the talkshow circuit and basically getting off on her own arrogance – and yes, I’m looking at you, John.

According to E Online,
“John still very much loves her and has feelings for her,” a well-placed source exclusively tells E! News. “It was just going to be too much with what was on his plate.”
Yeah, okay, sure.
Rumor also has it that Ms. Perry would consider getting back together with him if he got his shit back together with himself.
NO. THIS NEEDS TO END. NOW. FOREVER.
If we all ignore John Mayer, maybe he’ll go away. I don’t even care about his music; I’m coming at this from a human standpoint. We don’t need John Mayer fucking with anyone anymore.
Am I totally off on this?

John Mayer doesn’t really know the meaning of the word “dignity”, so he had no problem navel-gazing about relationships on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week (while simultaneously yammering on about what a private and personal thing it all is, naturally). The long and short of it is this, though: he’s no longer with Katy Perry and is continuing his “journey” to douchebagdom all by his lonesome.
“It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during, and it’s a private relationship still.”
“I can understand asking the question [about our split] based on some previous answers I have given, but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other.
“I’ve been much happier since then. I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing. It’s a tricky thing. I want everyone to be happy.”
Aw, well isn’t that sweet – John just wants everyone to be happy! He should be pleased to know that Katy herself is so happy, she’s sworn off men altogether after dating him. This dude is so egotistical that he thinks people are asking him about the split because of things he himself as said, rather than, you know, because there are reports all over the media that they’ve split. Ah, the ego. It’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?

Katy Perry and John Mayer were never going to last very long, and that’s just fine – he was a
nice rebound for her after splitting from Russell Brand and that dude from Florence + The Machine‘s band and she was… I’m not sure what for him. In any case, they both cut their losses earlier this month and split and Katy decided to leave relationships alone for a while, and she still will… so long as Johnny Boy doesn’t want to get back together for some raunchy make up sex or whatever the hell these two did together.
From Heat (via DigitalSpy):
“There’s no question that Katy wants to settle down, but right now, she’s not ready to fling herself into another relationship.
“If anything, she’d be open to reconciling with John if he can get his act together.”
Perry’s friends reportedly feel that Mayer “emotionally bailed” on her and that they got together too soon after she broke up with ex-husband Russell Brand.
The insider added: “Katy’s friends feel her expectations may have been too high, and are now wondering if it was all a rebound after Russell.”
No shit, Sherlocks. Is there any other reason to go out with John Mayer? She probably knew he was easy to get really wanted the D that night (and ended up getting stuck with him) or something, I don’t know. The human brain is capable of wondrous, magnificent things, but figuring out what would make any woman want to touch Mayer with a ten foot pole is beyond its capabilities.

We know Katy Perry kissed a girl and she liked it, so why not go full-time lady lovin’? I don’t think that’ll happen, but I couldn’t help but have fluffy white cartoon daydream clouds float above my head when I read Heat‘s headline, which claimed that Katy is “done with men”. Aren’t we all, sister? And wouldn’t we all be even if we already weren’t if we had dated John Mayer?
“It’s been a really tough time for Katy,” an insider tells this week’s heat. “John just emotionally bailed on her. She can’t believe she’s back to square one. She’s had enough of men.”
Instead of worrying about boys, Katy instead plans to focus on her work and wants to spend plenty of time hanging out with her friends,
“Katy is concentrating on healing, working on new music, and spending time with her girlfriends,” heat’s source explains.
Ain’t nothing wrong with taking a bit of “me time” after coming out of a relationship – especially if it’s with a total douchebag. Plus, hello, we’re waiting for a Teenage Dream follow-up and she’s gotta strike while the iron’s hot. How she’s going to out-do whipped cream tits is beyond me, though.
