Here’s a quick look at what the music world is up to on Twitter today.

  • Looks like Bethany from Best Coast is channelling the ghost of ol’ Blue Eyes for some piano parts. Classy.
  • It’s a small world and Megan Washington is going through some embarrassing Twitter note-passing with Rob Mills.
  • Lady Gaga and her mum created a foundation. What? Lady Gaga didn’t have a foundation already?
  • Billy Idol is on crutches. For some reason. He’s still got that grin, though.
  • Jazz great Herbie Hancock alerts us to the fact that you can watch a documentary about him online. All hail the Hancock.
  • Mark Hoppus of Blink-182  knows how to hold a grudge. I’m surprised anyone even remembers myspace.
  • Not Safe For Work Pop Quiz: which one is the real Ke$ha? Our vote is the one on the right.
  • Is Jay-Z giving away front row tickets to the Watch The Throne tour? Oh, baby. Tweet him.
  • Canadian sister duo Tegan & Sara link up a cute shirt that’s also, y’know, right on.
  • Lovely Kiwi singer Brooke Fraser is practicing for their music awards and fellow folk stars Avalanche City are currently knocking her out. In a good way.
