Someone at Time Magazine, who has way too much time on his or her hands, decided to run the tweets written by the 500 most followed celebrities through a reading comprehension test to determine the 50 Smartest Celebrities on Twitter. The test adds up the number of three-syllable words used in a tweet to calculate the education level required to understand it.
Time reported, the average Twitter user tweets at a 4th grade reading level.
Leonardo DiCaprio took the #1 spot with a 7.5 grade reading level. He tweets a lot about ocean conservation, so this is not surprising. Pattie Mallette, the woman who gave us Justin Bieber, ranked #2. My guess is that the three-syllable word “beliebers” helped her win this spot. Jenni “JWoww” Farley was one of the highest ranking reality TV stars!
In case you've been hiding under a rock this morning with no internet capabilities, Justin Bieber got busted for DUI (alcohol and drugs), resisting arrest, driving on a suspended license and drag racing. Not exactly reality TV news..except it is, sort of!
What does a pop star do when he's busted in Florida and not in his home state of Cali? He calls the best attorney in the state..who happens to be Real Housewives of Miami star Lea Black's husband Roy Black! Such a small world. We could probably make a fun game out of the six degrees of the Real Housewives.
What can I say about Teen MomFarrah Abraham that hasn't already been said? Wait…I can think of a few things. She's humble, she's kind, she's anything but a famewhore, and she always tells the truth. There, I did it!
In today's Farrah news, the reality turned adult film star is angering Justin Bieber's neighbors and pondering the fact that her high school guy friends have seen her naked. Oh, and she's also sharing her sadness about the recent hurricane in Oklahoma. Yes, you read that correctly. While you read on, I'll be shaking my head in amazement.
It's no secret to any of you that I adore Bachelor host Chris Harrison. He's equal parts diplomatic, fatherly, and humorous. He doesn't mince words. He wears ties that could not be pulled off by the average gentleman. In fact, the only complaint I've ever had about Mr. Harrison was his lapse in judgment when he went out with Justin Bieber's mom (more on her later!). Chris is now speaking outSean Lowe's engagement to Catherine Giudici and ABC's pick for Desiree Hartsock for the Bachelorette.
Chris even expresses his disdain for Sean choosing to doDancing with the Stars because he believes people will perceive him as being a "famewhore" who didn't do the Bachelor for the right reasons. Remember what I said about him not mincing words? Love it! Meanwhile, The Biebs' mom Patti Mallette was live-tweeting all over the place during Monday night's broadcast…perhaps trying to pique the interest of a certain debonair host?
Confession time: I can only stand Twitter in small doses.The amount of nonsensical crap that reality TV stars over share on a daily basis boggles my mind. That said, I honestly love how much both Arie and Jef share, because I cannot get enough of their bromance!
It doesn't matter if they're indulging in the Twilight saga's Breaking Dawn: Part 2 (Arie tweeted: Yes, this is happening) or feeding camels at the San Diego Zoo (Jef tweeted: Had fun at the San Diego Zoo today. Thought this guy was going to spit on me, but I beat him to it. #spitwars), they're hilarious.
Jef and Arie's most recent string of amusing tweets came before and after their appearance at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball in Los Angeles. Jef, Arie, and Chris Harrison were invited to introduce Justin Bieber. Arie shared the above picture with the caption: Jingle Ball….. Jefery Bieber and I.
The first season finale of The X Factor aired last night and a new winner was crowned!
So, who won the highly coveted $5 million prize? The lucky winner was 19-year-old Melanie Amaro! Melanie beat out her fellow finalists – Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik to take home the ultimate prize.
Chris was the first finalist to be eliminated, leaving Josh and Melanie to duke it out for the final prize.
“America, thank you for giving this girl an opportunity,” said Simon Cowell. “She is a star.” A very emotional Melanie stated after her win, “Thank you so much! I don’t know what to say. Thank you. God is good.”
Melanie’s win wasn’t exactly a huge surprise as she had one of the best auditions to get on the show. The finale began with the top 12 contestants, including Rachel Crow and Astro, singing Lady Gaga‘s “The Edge of Glory.” This was followed by performances by Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder and Leona Lewis.

The color scheme for the wedding is said to be black and white all the way with Kim picking out some white South African roses as decorations. In fact guests have been asked to only wear black or white attire.
As for the wedding dance, Kimmie, who might or might not have two left feet, has enlisted the help of her former Dancing With The Stars partner Mark Ballas. Kim, 30, and Kris, 26, have reportedly been taking professional lessons from Mark.
And finally, TMZ is reporting that security at the Kardashian-Humphries nuptials will be tighter than Bruce Jenner’s face! Kris Jenner A source reveals the security is treating the event “as if it was the white house.” The reason? Well Kimmie has a deal in place with PEOPLE and E! to publish photos and footage of the big day. So majority of the wedding festivities will take place either indoors or under tents to thwart the paparazzi because the Kardashians don’t want the footage to leak out.
The nuptials, which will take place tomorrow, will be featured on the cover of PEOPLE magazine next week. The E! network also announced it will air the made for TV wedding in a 4-hour special starting Oct. 9.
