[VIDEO] Celebrities Read Mean Tweets: Best Skit Ever?

Celebrities, they're just like us! Well, not really. Outside the money and fame they do have to deal with the scathing opinions of the general public. Especially on Twitter, where haters can directly spew venom with the ease of the @ symbol, many times anonymously. (We can't even imagine the heat Kristen Stewart is getting from Twihards in light of her sordid affair!)

Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel and a few self-deprecating celebs, a laugh out loud skit has come to form. Without further adieu, here is "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets."

Robbie Rivera's Sound Reverberates On Governor's Island

Review by: Ian Micallef

Robbie’s opening acts consisted of many incredibly talented, yet wildly under-rated tech house and progressive house DJs. Manuel De La Mare took the stage at 4 p.m. with a tech-house set that drew a huge crowd from the first arriving ferries. Stefano Noferini played another 90-minute tech-house set that made audience members groove and jive away.

An interesting turn of tempo came with the sounds of progressive and electro house - provided by DJs Paige and EDX who were sandwiched between the other two tech DJs. Adding these bolder, more defined sounds into the mix allowed the crowd to rage hard under the sun for some electro and progressive tracks, and then rest and groove for the much simpler and slower tech house sets.

BasketPong: The Hybrid Beer Pong + Basketball Drinking Game

Hey lushes/frat boys, we just got wind of a new drinking game called "BasketPong." Described as the "ultimate drinking, party and tailgating game that combines the competiveness and skill of basketball and darts with the fun and excitement of activities such as beer pong, quarters and flip cup."

Apparently this thing is so popular it was featured at the 2012 World Pong Tour Championship in Atlantic City.

We're not surprised by its popularity. We imagine this game will be the Cornhole of summer 2012.

You can pick up your set here or at select retail locations.

Game on!
