A historic day in world history became all the talk of Twitter, as the news that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had resigned and relinquished his power. Many celebrities went on their pages to express their feelings towards the people of Egypt, who have been part of the massive protests over the past 18 days. Ian Somerhalder posted his thoughts on the revolution in the country, "Congratulating the people of Egypt- freedom is every living person's right! You deserve it! Dictators be done!" while Nick Lachey wrote, "big day in #egypt! congrats to all the people there who finally made their voices heard!." Elijah Wood opted to write a simple, yet powerful message, "Power to the people."
On the other spectrum of the Twitterverse, there was plenty of buzz surrounding Lady Gaga's latest single, "Born This Way." Before the song hit iTunes and radio early this morning, Lindsay Lohan counted herself among the many fans who couldn't wait to listen, as the actress told followers, "I'm so excited for Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" to drop! - http://say.ly/UBU8wX." After the little monsters had a chance to check out the tune, many couldn't help but hear some similarities between Gaga (pictured) and Madonna. Chris Daughtry tweeted, "Just listened to a clip of Lady Gaga "Born This Way" and I gotta say...sounds a lot like "Express Yourself" from Madonna" and Kevin McHale noticed it, too, "kk glad im not the only one feeling like i just heard a "new" madonna song.."
