Ellen DeGenerous Most Tweeted Selfie via Twitter

A selfie of host Ellen DeGeneres with stars including Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper taken during Hollywood’s annual Academy Awards ceremony has become the most shared photo ever on Twitter.

Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and new Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o also crowded into the picture, which was snapped by Cooper after DeGeneres mingled with stars seated in the audience.

DeGeneres shared the selfie via her Twitter feed, it was subsequently shared, or retweeted, more than two million times in about two hours during the broadcast of the 86th annual Academy Awards ::::

“I’ve never tweeted before!” Streep, a three-time Oscar winner, gushed after Cooper snapped the photo with a mobile device.

“We got an email from Twitter and we crashed and broke Twitter. We have made history,” DeGeneres said shortly after access to the social media site was disrupted due to the sharing of her star-studded picture.

DeGeneres’ selfie surpassed the previous record by a bucket load. Set by Pres. Obama way back in 2012 – one taken during the US election campaign – of the US President hugging first lady Michelle Obama, it’s been retweeted more than 780,000 times.

The cutest pic of the night was also posted by DeGeneres, it was however tweeted the day after the Oscar’s night – above – and expressed much love from the television host.

There is a slim chance that a woman is going to win Time Magazines Person of the Year 2013, not for a lack of potential candidates, Nobel Peace Prize and US Presidential Medal of Freedom winner,  Aung San Suu Kyi exited decades of exile, fronting up for her people in a roughly emerging democracy. If your a little more right-wing with your politicians, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has to be a contender?

If giving is a noteworthy superpower, Melinda Gates, co-chair of the astounding Gates Foundation contributed mind boggling amounts of money to bettering the worlds living standards. Ms Gates and her foundation have made $US26 billion in grants over the past 13 years, not a shabby achievement.

At the less deserving end of contributors – entertainers – there’s Oprah and Beyonce. Oprah topped Forbes ‘Highest Earning Celebrity‘ list – and while many might think that alone is enough praise, she also touched the lives of the small folk, just ask a certain Swiss shop assistant. Beyonce on the other hand could use the prize after naming her child Blue Ivy.

Don’t even get me started on the business world! Point is, there’s always a bunch of talk about including women MORE! This isn’t ever going to happen unless the kudos starts flowing.

SEXTING WE GOT IT WRONGWe’ve enjoyed dipping our toes into the muddy pond of celebrity gossip, following great news aggregaters like TMZ and Perez Hilton, publishing filthy laundry on the private lives of very public people. Problem is sometimes the truth is just that, the plain old truth.

September 2011, looking back, it’s plain as day that something was bugging celebrities on the internet, Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis, Renee Olstead and of course – much to our shock-horror – Scarlett Johansson, all had nude, naked, sexting pix leaked.

We along with many others, stood around surmising that the Hollywood PR machine had simply wound itself tight around a stupid idea,naked pictures of celebrities would sell movies, seems we were way of base.  In our case, we never published the Scarlett Pix, our heart just wasn’t into disheveling such a wonderfilled actress, we did however buy into that most lurid of questions, might it all be a ruse? :: Read the full article »»»»

SEXTING! Seems Teens Do It LESS Than Even We Thought?Ah that old nugget is back, SEXTING! The list of celebrity regret is awesome, Blake Lively, Jessica Alba, Kat Dennings, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, The Weiner, Snooki and Miley Cyrus, all armed with a smartphone, a mirror and a penchant for flashing the flesh. Clearly highpants loves these dribbles and drabs from celebs, there is a more real side to all this though – Regret!? While flashing flesh might be an integral part of the PR machine that is the entertainment industry, in our normal humdrum lives naughty pix can be a pain.

And while we’ve sat around here making much noise about the dangers of sexting; August 2011 Clearly the adolescent brain doesn’t fully develop until they are in their early 20s with the pre frontal cortex, the part that acts as the CEO of the brain, controlling planning and modulating mood, maturing last. As the prefrontal cortex matures, teenagers develop more control over impulses and usually make better judgments, or perhaps an age prohibition on smart devices?

Smart Phones are being used by teens for sexual exploration via the exchange of sexually suggestive content (sexting). Sexting includes explicit text, and nude or semi-nude personal pictures or videos captured on a cell phone or digital camera and sent via personal texts, emails, and instant messages. (Uhls et al, 2011). Pew research in 2009 found that 4% of adolescents report sending sexts while 15% report receiving them. The report also found that there was no difference in the amount of sexts sent or received even when parents checked their children’s cell phones.
