But according to many a Twitter user, Adams is rude.
Today the singer took to Twitter to essentially appear on his own “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” bit, to both thank users for the well wishes (sarcastically?), and put a few #meantweeters on blast with hashtag #TOPMEANTWEETS. He also sarcastically apologized for not better planning his laryngitis and upper respiratory infection.
Or that’s a character he once played in a bad movie? Regardless, the actor is in Austin and hitting the South by South streets.
According to a few tweets and a few pictures, Franco attended tonight’s premiere of the new Terrence Malick film “Song to Song” at the Paramount. The movie stars Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender and Rooney Mara, who were all in attendance at the showing and answered questions beforehand.

What does a Texas sheriff wear to the Oscars? A tux with a few Texas touches. Namely, “my black boots and my hat,” McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara told Waco’s KWTX.
McNamara will be among Hollywood’s biggest stars Sunday night when he attends the 89th Academy Awards; not as a nominee, but as a muse. According to KWTX, McNamara and his brother Mike were the inspiration behind “Hell or High Water,” which is nominated for four Oscars this year, including best picture.
The screenplay for the movie, which stars Jeff Bridges as a Texas sheriff looking for one last adventure before retirement, was written by McNamara’s cousin Taylor Sheridan who saw how the former U.S. Marshal struggled with possible retirement.
McNamara and his wife Charlotte won’t be forgetting the Lone Star State out on the red carpet. “We’ve got the red carpet, we’ve got his white shirt, and we’ve got the blue dress, so we’ve got the red white and blue,” she said.
The couple also expect to share a limousine ride to the ceremony with Bridges, who McNamara developed a friendship with and helped prepare for the role.
Maybe that explains why one local couple chose to stick to what they know they love — with just a little added flair. Reddit user letstalkaboutrocks posted to the Austin subreddit to share pictures of him and his girlfriend celebrating Valentine’s by having dinner at Pluckers dressed in full formal wear, something they’ve done for the past three years.

Animal rights group PETA recently released a list of their top 10 vegan desserts in the country, and it turns out if you’re looking to indulge you don’t have to go far.

If you’ve been to Barbarella on 80s night, there isn’t anything in the video below you haven’t basically seen before.
Groups of sweaty, oddly dressed young people dancing, dancing, dancing. The video wasn’t taped on Sixth Street last weekend, however, but in Austin in 1985. The three-minute clip captures an unfiltered look at what the Austin club scene was like nearly 30 years ago. And it looks just as sticky.
Although the inclusive nature of Austin’s downtown seems to have survived (“Everybody gets along so wonderfully. Whatever you are, just party.”), the 25-cent drinks are sadly a perk of the past.
The video was uploaded to the YouTube account of a successful Kickstarter campaign looking to make a documentary about “how public access TV helped shape the culture of Austin, one of America’s weirdest cities.” The film will be called “When We Were Live.” The project, led by local video producer John Spottswood Moore, earned $17,000 from 209 backers. Other videos uploaded to the channel include “Baseball for the Blind,” and “Why Ann Richards was so Great.”
