Getting your celebrity gossip from "TMZ" is soooooo 2009, dude. Each Thursday in "Twitter Litter," RFT Music rounds up the week's best meltdowns, ego battles and WTFness from rockers, rappers and DJs who aren't afraid of a little hashtag action. It's time to take out the trash.
Unlike the past couple of editions, this week's "Twitter Litter" is surprisingly free of widespread controversy. In our view, that kind of sucks, since we get our rocks off on musicians being self-righteous and Taking Things Seriously. But just because the animals aren't taking sides on Mileygate or patriotism doesn't mean they've given up on saying stupid things.
We should devote an entire edition of "Twitter Litter" to Tyler, the Creator (@fucktyler) sometime. Until we get that desperate, though, a single page will have to do. The guy's been busy, in the most inappropriate way that only Tyler can pull off.
He's playing some "Grand Theft Auto V":
YES I FEEL BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE CAUSE I HAD GTA BEFORE ALL OF YOU, YOU FUCKING PEASANTS— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 17, 2013
He's going shopping:
WAL MART IN NEBRASKA HAS A NIGGA SECTION HAHA http://t.co/fYLgCVg8i6— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 18, 2013
BEANS! http://t.co/KagPJzwPjj— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 18, 2013
He's enjoying waffles:
Dear Eggo, I Love You - Tyler— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 18, 2013
MAPLE SYRUP IS THE BEST— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 18, 2013
And he's... well... he's just being Tyler.

YO DRIZZY WHOS MAYONNAISE IS THIS IN THE FRIDGE?— Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 18, 2013
Label your shit, Drizzy. Come on.
Continue for a Elvis Costello/Questlove gangbang and Lady Gaga's delusions.
Tyler isn't the only one playing video games. But instead of "GTA5," Mark Hoppus (@markhoppus) prefers "Animal Crossing":

Last week, Hoppus farted; this week, he's buying java from a bird. Yep, we like him.
Lada Gaga (@ladygaga) has been thinking about her new single and its place in the world:
'Applause' is a very meaningful song to me, because it addresses what many think of 'celebrities' today, that we 'do it' for the attention.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 18, 2013
I believe in show business. The 'Applause' is what breeds that thing that I love. When I know i've made you happy. When I know it was good.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 18, 2013
But here's the thing, Gaga: "Applause" isn't good. In fact, it's pretty much your worst song since "Alejandro." Yeah, we said it.
You know what is good, unlike that Lady Gaga crap? The collaboration between Elvis Costello (@elviscostello) and The Roots (@theroots). The musicians recently performed songs from their outstanding new album Wise Up Ghost at the Brooklyn Bowl, and Questlove (@questlove) is kind enough to share some footage:
Mmmmm... so like candy. Need more? Check out photos from the show:
Ok, we'll admit it: We're a little jealous of that our Village Voice friends can be so close to that kind of magic.
In case you've ever wondered if Ezra Koenig (@arze) is an eyeroll-inducing douche:
which is worse: congratulatin a big lady on her non-existent pregnancy or congratulatin a rando dude in relaxed fit jeans on becoming a dad?— Ezra Koenig (@arzE) September 17, 2013
No further comment.
According to RFT Music's hometown hero Murphy Lee (@murphylee), this is how you should wake up in the morning:
