5 Crazy Celebrities To Follow On Twitter (And One Honorable Mention)


Crazy celebs to follow

So you want a bit of “strange” on your Twitter feed each morning? Though there are a ton of weirdos on social media, some of the best standouts come from the celebrity world.

I already know what you’re thinking: “AMANDA BYNES IS CRAAZY I FOLLOW HER LOL.” Salient observation, reader! But everyone knows that Amanda Bynes is a nut right now, her Twitter weirdness is literally 44% of our traffic.

We want to shine a light on the darker, hidden corners of the celebrity world. We’re not looking for “lol crazy,” we’re looking for scary, aggressive, completely-detached-from-reality crazy. We want your batshit, tinfoil-hat wearing uncle who won’t speak to you about the government within five feet of your laptop or television.

He exists! His name is …

No. 1 – Gary Busey

The Buse has kind of fallen out of the zeitgeist lately, but thanks to his 100% verified Twitter account, you can wax nostalgic for Celebrity Apprentice every single day! Join his 100,536 followers for daily advice on weight loss:

Heartbreak:

And philosophy:

No. 2 – Jose Canseco

Jose Canseco was a great baseball player because of drugs, and he’s great to follow on Twitter for probably the same reason. He’s one of the meanest sumbitches on Twitter, and when his feed isn’t a domestic dispute playing out in real time, he entertains his 519,872 followers with his perversions:

Casting suggestions for summer blockbusters:

Lessons on gravity and the origins of the earth:

That’s literally only like … 10 percent of his Twitter lecture.

No. 3 – Kirstie Alley

Kirstie Alley is a Scientologist. That should probably be the end of the discussion, but just for fun:

Hi, Kirstie.

Those are good. I like Shawshank Redemption, but the movie I seen the most time are probably Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or something.

Well, you know I had a lot of time as a kid to watch kid movies … wait, what?

Uhh … good night.

No. 4 – Courtney Love

Courtney Love … excuse me … Courtney Love Cobain was Twitter crazy long before Amanda Bynes. In fact, she was real crazy probably long before Amanda Bynes was even born. But beneath that sloppy, drunk exterior is a real tortured and creative soul that composes tweets of such lyrical quality as:

To be fair to Courtney Love, her Twitter more often than not hosts bouts of relative calm than crazy these days. It’s really a shame you can’t follow her old handle @CourtneyLoveUK, because that’s where all the good stuff was at.

No. 5 – Juliana Hatfield

Juliana Hatfield is an American guitarist/singer-songwriter who achieved some fame in the indie rock scene. She’s still around (going back to school, actually), and her tweets are absolutely nutty. She’s actually a really entertaining follow. She seems to have that quiet, unsettling tone of a lonely cat lady talking to a brick wall, but she has over 12,000 followers that soak up her strangeness.

Tila Tequila (Honorable Mention)

Tila Tequila

Poor Tila Tequila, who honestly believes that she can create Kamehame-ha’s with her hands. Whether it’s the Illuminati, Biblical eschatology, or alien conspiracy, Tila is always a hit. We’re cheating a bit on this entry because Tila Tequila’s official Twitter handle no longer exists. Follow her on Facebook instead. It’s a hoot, I tell you.
