James Franco Attacks Bruce Vilanch on Twitter

Look, we understand that it takes a certain amount of self-importance to become a celebrity of note. It probably takes a lack of self-awareness, too. But, if James Franco is under the impression that his performance at this year's Academy Awards was anything less than dreadful, he might be the least self-aware person on Earth. The actor/author/college instructor/multimedia "artist" took to Twitter...

MySpace Rolls Out New Redesign, Says It's No Longer Competing With Facebook

Remember that MySpace makeover that was in the works over the summer?

The One Person Kanye West Follows on Twitter Says Fame Is 'Vacuous'

When recent Twitter convert Kanye West chose to follow the account of a kid named Steven Holmes, everyone struggled to comprehend why Mr. West would want to follow a relatively anonymous student -- and no one else.

But the comedy...
