The day in music as told by tweets. One Direction’s Liam Payne told friends that he was “in it for the long haul” with dancer girlfriend Danielle Peazer and for a minute the world started toaster shopping. Good news, ladies – Peazer’s left ring finger remains unadorned.
In other news, Snoop Lion (a.k.a. the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg) and his name change are receiving a, well, lion’s share of the Twitter joshing. Enjoy. Rawr.
