Surely, by now, you are already familiar with the pop music Twitter feud that is slowly destroying the world.

If not then you probably just have some personal problems like 'things to do' or 'a social life'.

But for the rest of us, we're stuck wringing our hands over whether Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift will ever get along again, why Meek Mills dragged Drake into this and when Chrissy Teigen will finally leave her computer?

But in walks Aaron Paul with a solution to create peace and bring the world the order it deserves.

You can tell it's been keeping him up all night. And you can't deny that coffee and pancakes with Aaron Paul would solve many, many problems in the world.

I say send him to finally settle that whole Israel/Palestine thing.

A$AP Rocky flattered the heck out of Susan Sarandon and she'd like to celebrate it with some weed.

Sarandon reached out to rapper A$AP Rocky over Twitter July 14 to thank him for mentioning her in the 2013 song 1Train of his album LONG.LIVE.A$AP.

Then she went a bit farther and invited him to smoke up with her.

Sarandon has long been an advocate for using marijuana, saying that she smokes it before most award shows.

What's even more interesting about this piece of pop culture purée is that she's not alone in being confused over what her name means in slang.

Here are the lyrics that reference Sarandon:

I fixed the game between Georgia Southern and Gramblin'
You see us scrambling, selling Susan Sarandon

The plot thickens ever so slightly, when visiting to try and suss out the meaning of those words. Genius' whole mission is about annotating song lyrics and many other things to uncover the context behind situations exactly like this.

Strangely, the site seems to have trouble nailing down the slang.

The other half of the lyric is either a reference to c0caine, as in "selling that white girl," or weed if it's a reference to the 1998 movie Stepmom in which Sarandon's character smoked medical marijuana.

A while later, Susan Sarandon heard the line and was honored for the shoutout while not fully understanding it's meaning.

Unfortunately, Urban Dictionary is no help either.

If you want to help Susan Sarandon and figure out the mysterious reference, you can listen to the song here:

Popular Belgian musician Stromae (aka Paul Van Haver) has a released a new video for his song “Carmen” which turns Twitter into a terrifying monster.

“Those fake smiles cut like a #. Watch yourself out there,” he says in the song. “Network friends and followers? No, no you’re just popular.”

It’s a reworking of “Habanera” from the opera Carmen, in which love is compared to a bird. He took that idea and made a version about Twitter.

The song is a commentary on how social media dominates our lives, and ironically he is promoting the new video on an Instagram account which he started a few weeks ago. It was directed by Sylvain Chomet, who worked on both “Triplets of Belleville” and “The Illusionist.”

“I’m not so radical about Twitter, but I think it’s sometimes dangerous if you think that Twitter is real life,” he told Time Out in an interview last year.

Stromae has a huge following in Europe and he is also popular with some world leaders, as both Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama apparently own copies of one of his albums.

Here’s another of his hits called “Formidable,” which you may be familiar with. In the video, he walks around the streets of Brussels pretending to be drunk.

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed that Albus Dumbledore was gay back in 2007 at Carnegie Hall, but apparently some fans still can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

On Twitter Tuesday, a girl named Ana Kocovic reached out to Rowling and asked about the decision to make the Hogwarts headmaster a homosexual.

“Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter,” Kocovic wrote. “I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can’t see him in that way.”

And just like magic, Rowling responded with the most perfect tweet ever.

The girl ended up thanking her and apparently deleting all of her tweets. Her profile now says her name is Gellert Grindelwald, whom Rowling previously said was Dumbledore’s love interest.

“Amazing answer,” she replied. “Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!”

To encourage discussions about race relations in the United States, Starbucks has asked its baristas to write #RaceTogether on coffee cups and engage in serious conversations with customers.

Turns out that’s the last thing people a bunch of disgruntled people want first thing in the morning while waiting for their first jolt of caffeine.

CEO Howard Schultz describes the initiative as “an opportunity to begin to re-examine how we can create a more empathetic and inclusive society – one conversation at a time.”

He organized an internal meeting back in December in which employees shared stories and discussed all the recent shootings and events which inspired protests and riots from Ferguson to New York.

The company held similar forums around the country over the past few months, and now they’ve decided to extend this initiative out to their customers through the “Race Together” initiative.

Despite all the good intentions behind the campaign, it has turned into somewhat of a joke on Twitter.

After the backlash, Starbucks’ senior vice president of communications, Corey duBrowa, eventually deleted his Twitter account, which is not a good sign.

“I was personally attacked through my Twitter account around midnight last night and the tweets represented a distraction from the respectful conversation we are trying to start around Race Together,” he told Business Insider.

Here are some of the responses on Twitter that Starbucks likely did not see coming:

President Obama receives his fair share of criticism online, but he’s embracing all the hate in a new edition of “Mean Tweets” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Watch him react to a #ThanksObama and someone who does’t approve of his dad-jeans style.

“Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there?” writes one girl.

“I think that’s a great idea,” he says.

You can also watch Kimmel’s post-Mean Tweets interview with Obama below, in which he says he didn’t think those messages were very mean at all.

“You should see what the Senate says about me,” he says.

He also talks about why he still has a BlackBerry and how he doesn’t actually use Twitter himself.

A teenage girl with the Twitter handle “@Cellla_” did not want to go to work at her new job at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas last week, so she Tweeted about it.

And now she doesn’t have to go, because she was fired.

Her would-be boss, Robert Waple, saw the tweet (thanks to one his employees), and he let her know himself that she didn’t have to bother showing up.

It seems like Robert is done with Twitter for while after this 15 seconds of fame. He hadn’t used his account since 2009, and he has since deleted all the tweets related to her firing.

“Made my point today,” he wrote. “I’ll check in again in 6 years.”

And Cella is seeing a lot of mixed reactions on her Twitter account now as the story spreads, but she just finds the whole thing so LOL.
