Demi Moore used to grab headlines for her acting, now it’s for personal catastrophes or little things like deciding on a new name to tweet from. She has publicly moved on from former hubby, Ashton Kutcher, by dropping his name (@mrskutcher) as her Twitter handle. Although you know she wishes she could call herself Mrs. Kutcher again.
She recently returned to the social networking site after a three month absence that included a stint in rehab for an assortment of problems including drug abuse and an eating disorder. Of course her official explanation for rehab was the blanket catch-all diagnosis, “exhaustion”. Mind you, who wouldn’t be exhausted after starving themselves, taking loads of recreational drugs, and trying to sleep with every young Hollywood hottie in pants?
On Thursday morning the star promised to decide on a new name by the time she reached 5 million followers and sure enough, she made good on that promise. A few hours later she wrote, “So hard finding a name that was fun somewhat playful and available. So for now it will be @justdemi It could grow on me! Thanks everyone for your help in finding my new name!”
Seriously? It took the actress (and her handlers) weeks to come up with justdemi? I guess they aren’t a very creative bunch now are they? Of course you don’t think that Twitter for celebs is anything but another business, do you?
Do you like @justdemi or do you think Moore should have thought a little harder before settling on a new name? Do you think she should have taken more time for herself, preferably out of the public eye, before returning to celebrity life? Let us know in the comments below.
