Top 10 celebrity tweets of 2010
Who needs a publicist when you have Twitter? With everyone from Justin Bieber to Katy Perry [and even Tiger Woods] tweeting their every thought, check out the top 10 celebrity tweets of 2010.
10. LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes takes to Twitter to defend herself after talk show host Wendy Williams says Rimes shouldn't call Eddie Cibrian's kids "my boys" because "the boys have a mother, and her name is Brandi [Glanville]." Rimes and Cibrian met while married to other people and divorced their spouses to be with each other.
"All I know is Wendy Williams done pissed my mamma off! I don't wanna be in her path. To say, 'I've reserved myself a place in hell?!' I'm incredibly disappointed to see someone with that kind of platform use it for such negativity and could be so mean and judgmental about a situation they know nothing about...I don't like how it happened either, said it a million times, but this is out of control."
9. Tiger Woods
The notoriously private Tiger Woods started tweeting this year -- possibly to restore his embattled image? His first tweet:
8. Jim Carrey
"Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I'm grateful 4 the many blessings we've shared and I wish her the very best! S'okay!"

She also tweeted, "I feel great, Rodger and I are beyond excited and so thankful for all of your love and support. xoRZ & RB."
6. Chris Brown
After being charged with assaulting Rihanna in 2009, Chris Brown tweets that he is finished with his court ordered domestic violence class:
"I'm done with class," he tweeted, as he included a picture of his certificate of completion.
"I have enough self respect and decency to be proud of accomplishing this DV class," he wrote. "Boyz run from [their] mistakes. Men learn from them!!!"
5. Lindsay Lohan
After a failed drug test confirmed Lindsay Lohan had cocaine in her system, the actress took to Twitter to explain herself in a series of tweets:
"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before Judge Fox next week as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps...forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future."
"This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences. I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that I am trying hard...but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful....Thank you all!!!"
4. John Mayer
Although the singer-songwriter has since canceled his Twitter account, John Mayer made a statement with a series of tweets this year apologizing for his use of the "n-word" in a Playboy interview:
"Re: using the 'N word' in an interview: I am sorry that I used the word. And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged."
"And while I'm using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it's time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews ... I wanted to be a blues guitar player. And a singer. And a songwriter. Not a shock jock. I don't have the stomach for it."
