Welcome back to another episode of Bitch Popaganda! Tune in as Shaamini, Brian, and Kelsey discuss the premiere of HBO's Treme, whether or not celebrities should use Twitter, and the implications of a Photoshop-free lifestyle. Plus, Bitch faves!
OK, so a few of us at the Bitch office might be just a little obsessed with Bravo's Kell on Earth, the reality show based on Kelly Cutrone and her fashion PR company People's Revolution. What can we say? It's really good. If you watch the show as well, you know that someone got fired on this week's episode for inappropriate tweeting (video here). Hey, NOBODY TWEETS ABOUT PEOPLE'S REVOLUTION AND GETS AWAY WITH IT. Not even this LOLcat:
Meghan McCain posted the cleavage shot that launched a thousand tweets last night with this twitpic of her reading an Andy Warhol biography:
The photo, which she captioned with the line, my "spontaneous" night in is my Andy Warhol biography and takeout....I'm getting old caused a major freakout among her devoted Twitter followers and their pervy friends, with cries of "boobs!" and "slut!" and "boobs!" echoing throughout the Twitterverse. (Yes, I said Twitterverse. It's a thing now.) Slut shame much, tweeple?
So: I went to the zoo today. I thought it would be nice! I live in New York City! It is hard to see animals bigger than squirrels or lap dogs out here, so I imagined it would be very fulfilling and grounding, in some sort of hippie Earth Mother way, to actually see some of those and remind myself that I do not live on a planet entirely composed of Pinkberry outlets. But here's the thing: zoos, if you are not seven years old, are very depressing. There's nothing nice about captivity. Even if you wouldn't wish to see some of these animals out and wandering around in your neighborhood - even if they are dangerous or gross or otherwise undesirable - there's something deeply sad and wrong about seeing them stuck behind glass walls, with nothing to do, just waiting for someone to come by and look at them.
It was under these circumstances, then, that I began to think about Miley Cyrus deleting her Twitter.
