TwitBits: R.E.M., Dillinger Escape Plan, Will.I.Am, Jennifer Hudson And More

Michael Stipe visits Colbert, Dillinger/Mastodon side project reveals their name, Will.I.Am is on a large plane, Jennifer Hudson watches Dreamgirls, and heaps more.


Here’s a little look at what musicians have been up to on Twitter today.

  • Michael Stipe from R.E.M. will be on The Colbert Report tonight. With the break-up and those wang photos, this should be good.
  • Pop moppet Greyson Chance is on his way to play a show at a school in Kuala Lumpur; the first time he’s been to a school in a year!
  • Really? Jennifer Hudson has never shown her kid her Oscar-winning performance in Dreamgirls? I’d have it on loop. With the Oscar on the TV.
  • Brian McFadden is rocking the Zach Galifianakis look. Or so he thinks, the pretty man.
  • Oh. It’s because he’s having a Novembeard-off with Ronan Keating.
  • Is Ryan Seacrest tweeting like a twelve-year-old girl just because he’s talking to Rihanna?
  • Goofy singer Adam Green comes good with the Lou Reed/Metallica jokes. Click through.
  • Oooooo, there’s a Dillinger Escape Plan and Mastodon supergroup? It’s called Giraffe Tongue Orchestra? What?
  • Brisbane indie pop crooners Hungry Kids Of Hungary are doing an open-air cinema show in Melbourne.
  • Will.I.Am is tweeting photos from the cockpit of a Boing Boeing 777, proving that spelling skills are not required to be ultra-successful.
