The Word: Casper Smart takes to Twitter

Just why did megastar Jennifer Lopez fall for Casper Smart? If you’re thinking it’s because he’s a hot piece of young man meat with terrific abs who is completely subservient to her every want and desire, you’d be wrong! It’s his seriously deep tweets, yo. How moving are they? Let’s just say: Can someone get the president from the Precious Moments Page-a-Day Calendar company on the phone? Smart needs to stop dancing and start writing to inspire all of us. Some of my favorites:

 “Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant.”

@TheNoteboook: Be real, be yourself, be unique, be true, be honest, be humble, be happy.” ……JUST BE!!!!!

“We should all honor our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts; Love and be happy!”

Wow! Can’t you just visualize that text on a poster with a picture of the “Hang in There” cat? How does he know that my “passion and dreams” consist of mocking, in a free daily newspaper, the throwaway tweets of a 24-year-old backup dancer I’ve never met? 

Brand’s newest tell-all book

Is Russell Brand writing a tell-all memoir about his 14-month marriage to Katy Perry? According to Us Weekly, he is. The tabloid says that not only did Brand blindside his pop-star wife with the filing of the divorce, but he is also planning to “cover all the nitty-gritty, sometimes ugly details” of their marriage.

Perry, for one, isn’t happy. “Katy is insulted and feels betrayed that Russell has treated her so poorly,” a pal to the singer tells Us. “She will never forgive him. Ever.”

Sure, it’s low-class, but is anyone else just the slightest bit interested in knowing if he ever got to play with that whipped-cream bra?
