RIP Heavy D: The Rapper’s Most Inspiring Tweets

I was saddened yesterday to learn of the death of Dwight Arrington Myers, better known as the illustrious Heavy D of Heavy D & the Boyz. He collapsed yesterday outside his Beverly Hills home, reportedly due to respiratory issues, and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he passed away. The self-proclaimed “overweight lover” of hip-hop rose to fame in the late ’80s and continued to maintain a sizable fan base through the ’90s. Just last month, he performed at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards, his first live performance in 15 years. He was also known for his uplifting and insightful Twitter stream, which really shows just how much he genuinely loved life. Rest in peace, Heavy D. Here are 10 of his best tweets, beginning with his optimistic final message.

Salman Rushdie Tweets A Limerick For Kim Kardashian

Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Salman Rushdie took a break from Tweeting about smart stuff (like which Phillip Roth novel is best … I vote for American Pastoral!) to weigh in on Kim Kardashian’s divorce in limerick form:

“The marriage of poor kim #kardashian was krushed like a kar in a krashian / her kris kried, not fair! why kan’t I keep my share? / But kardashian fell klean outa fashion.”

So this is what it looks like when highbrow and lowbrow make a Twitter baby. Absolutely delightful! I feel like Kim should consider hiring him as her publicist. He could write limericks instead of press releases.

Which (Short) Celeb Is Sitting On The Toilet?

Eh, I won’t build the suspense for too long. The answer is … Jessica Simpson! The maybe-probably-totally-pregnant star tweeted this photo of herself sitting on the can at Bergdorf Goodman. I have many questions. Where are her shoes? (No judgement — I go barefoot in our bathroom at work and I’m not joking.) If you’re 5’3 (as she is) do your feet really dangle off the ground that much? (“Short girl problems,” she wrote alongside the photo.) And who took this pic anyway? Her fiance? Her dad? Eww. Whatever. [Buzzfeed]

“Recently I tweeted, ‘I can’t read another article about how great it is to see the Harry Potter kids growing up.’ And everyone was like, ‘Why all the hate? Emma Watson’s a thousand times prettier than you!’ Sometimes people tweet at you and it’s, like, ‘You just wanted to tell me I was ugly. You’ve been waiting with that insult in your heart to tell me.’ … I’m 32, so someone saying I’m not pretty does not have as big an effect on me as it would if they were saying I’m not funny or not smart. I would be really upset about that. But the pretty thing doesn’t bother me that much. Yeah, when we’re on the show, I want to look skinny, have perfect makeup, get my Spanx on, get a good angle, and get good lighting. But it wouldn’t super offend me if Joan Rivers doesn’t think I look hot on the red carpet.”
