Kim Kardashian is always tweeting about something inane. Sometimes she’ll try to tweet about a product without it being incredibly obvious that they’re asking her to. But it’s always obvious. Lohan has been doing her own product endorsement, although the company claims they are not paying her.
And yes, apparently some celebs get paid to tweet about companies and products — even the D-list celebs. The more followers/famous the celeb, the more money they can command per tweet. For example, Kim Kardashian can get (allegedly) around $20,000 per tweet. Frankie Muniz can only get $252. (Nelson Muntz laugh here.)

If there’s one thing Mike Tyson loves, it’s pigeons. He loves them so much, he apparently owned 2,500 of them at one point and even made a documentary about his pets. That’s why this story is particularly troubling: apparently, his ex-girlfriend cooked and ate one of them. Uhhh, okay.
From WFAN’s Boomer and Carton show:
“I was dating this young lady and she said, ‘I don’t know why you’re flying those damn birds, you should be eating them. She happened to grab one – and she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn’t do it.”
Added Tyson, who also happens to be a vegan: “It just wasn’t the right thing to do. It wasn’t cool. It was her house and we were living on her dime, so she could do [it].”
LOL, I love that Mike Tyson is a vegan. Also, that this ex-girlfriend thought domesticated pigeons were worth eating. I can’t imagine what possessed her to do that. Hunger, I suppose?
Also, when did Mike Tyson ever have to live on an ex-girlfriend’s dime? Hasn’t he been rich, like, forever? Even when he grabbed an earful from Evander Holyfield, he must’ve had some cash in the bank to sustain him, surely? Oh, whatever. Happy Friday.
It’s the weekend, and what better way to spend a Saturday than to feature stories with crazy people? I leave you today with a little gem from your favorite bird-loving banned boxer, Mike Tyson, who – besides his fondness for his avian friends – also really loves… Justin Bieber?
From MTV News:
“I just think he’s pretty awesome,” Tyson said, “And I think his cut with Big Sean ['As Long As You Love Me'] was pretty awesome too.”
Tyson then further emphasized this point by singing a few lines from a Bieber tune (though, to be honest, we’re not sure which Bieber tune) and said that his knowledge of music was nearly as impressive as his collection of title belts … a fact he owes mainly to his wife.
“If you saw my iPad, I have everything. My wife puts everything on my iPad. You know, ‘Justin? Let’s put him in there. Let’s put Rihanna in there. Let’s put Kendrick Lamar in there,’” he laughed. “My wife’s got everything on there, she’s got Shania Twain — I don’t know why she put that in there — and I can’t remember some of the other stuff. I hear Lloyd sometimes. But mostly I find out about stuff from my wife.”
And though he’s never gotten the chance to sit down and talk with Bieber, Tyson definitely had some career advice for the young crooner … especially in light of the recent controversy that arose over those “weed” photos.
“Justin’s not having any problems. He should just enjoy his life; nothing’s wrong, he’s not doing anything bad or anything,” Tyson said. “Weed is not necessarily a problem. He hasn’t gotten arrested or anything, or in a car wreck. He’s a really awesome kid, and he earned everything he has … He should just live life on life’s terms.”
If there’s anyone I wouldn’t take life advice from, it’s Mike Tyson. Just stick to your pigeons, man. Justin can stick to showing his butt in public or whatever he’s doing with his life since he hit puberty.
