Miley, Charlie and more!
January 27th, 2014
Some people live-tweet events and some take it even a step further: they capitalize on trending topics and create whole new Twitter accounts devoted to these things. And these are things, mind you. Inanimate objects who don’t have actual thoughts. But hey, anything is possible on the internet!
If you were tuning in to the Grammys last night, both on your TV and on your social media news feeds, you would have seen a certain Twitter account pop up halfway through the show: Pharrell’s Hat (@pharrellhat). That’s right, the biggest trending topic of night — big enough to have a life of its own away from the award-winning producer’s head — got its very own Twitter account and now has over 15,000 followers. Think about that for a second: a hat has more followers than you.
This isn’t the first time the internet has produced such a golden nugget of trendiness, though. Take a look below and see what other famous inanimate objects exist on the worldwide web! You can totally admit to us if you follow them. We most definitely follow a few of these ourselves…
Pharrell’s Hat (@pharrellhat)
The hat that keeps on giving. What did we do at award shows before Twitter?
Sample tweet: “i’m def more fashionable than madonna’s grill”
Lana Del Rey’s Grammy (@lanasgrammy)
Pharrell’s Hat wasn’t the only Twitter account born last night. Angry Lana Del Rey fans rallied up and followed the pop star’s would-be trophy had she won for Best Pop Vocal Album or Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Sample tweet: “@LanaDelRey we will meet soon.”
Angelina Jolie’s Leg (@angelinajoliesL)
Though this isn’t the original account (it no longer exists), Angelina Jolie’s fierce leg stance caused a huge stir at the 2012 Oscars to the point where her Twitter account ended the night with over 10,000 followers. FOR ONE LEG. That puts all 10 of our fingers to shame.
Sample tweet: “You have to admit I’m one hell of a leg”
Anne Hathaway’s nipples (@Hathawaynipple)
Nope, Anne Hathaway’s 2013 Oscars outfit wasn’t a wardrobe malfunction but it was definitely a hot topic of the evening so much so that we got this amazing Twitter account out of it. (Note: there are multiple accounts out there, not just one.)
Sample tweet: “We just won the Breast Dressed Award. Blergh. #Oscars”
Beyonce’s Baby (@Beyoncejayfetus)
Even before Blue Ivy entered the world, the fetus of Jay Z and Beyonce’s baby was busy being Twitter famous. Geez, what can’t Blue Ivy do?
Sample tweet: “I better be one of Oprah’s favorite things next year.”
Drake’s Knee (@Drakesknee)
Wheelchair Jimmy will live on in our hearts and via this hilarious Twitter account dedicated to Drake’s time spent on the Canadian soap opera Degrassi (and of course in a fake wheelchair). This is also one of the oldest accounts on the list (it was started in 2009!) and still tweets today.
Sample tweet: “the Grammys oh did you go? / I got nominated too, bro / underneath @pharrellhat ? most likely, it’s Chad Hugo”
Lil Wayne’s Jeggings (@Waynes_jeggings)
Shortly after his performance on the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, rapper Lil Wayne’s loud pants was the fashion statement of the night. Those gloriously tight pants — people deemed them jeggings, but we’d beg to differ — had an account of its own by the end of the night, naturally.
Sample tweet: “#JeggingWarriors Unite!!”
