If in vino veritas, then Twitter is the new place to get the un-vetted truth from loose-thumbed celebrities three sheets to the wind. Just ask Diddy, who spent the last couple hours drunk tweeting up a veritable tornado. The drunk tweets include a wedding announcement (“I decided to get Married today!!! I feel like a new man! Wedding is planned for valentines day!!! Your all welcome!! Feb 14th. Let’s go!”), an unprompted switch to a vegan lifestyle (“I also became vegan today!!!! :)”), a retraction of the previous two comments (“Weddings off. She aint sign the prenup!!! Lol. I’m just bullsitin. Sorry I’m bored today! And I’m not a vegan. Let’s goooo!”), and an apology for his inappropriate tweeting (“I’m sorry to all !!! I’ve been drunk tweeting all morning!! Sorry. Le gooooooo! Happy monday! Smile people. Life is to short”).
Unfortunately, just because someone’s drunk and famous doesn’t mean he’ll have anything interesting or even entertaining to say. But there is something refreshing about having a direct line to a celeb’s thoughts before they’ve been edited by a publicist and approved for public consumption. Now let’s just hope someone funnier – like Shaquille O’Neal or 50 Cent – gets drunk and mans the Tweetdeck.
