What’s harder than making your first million? Making your first BILLION…. and then probably trillion and so on. But Drake got a wise tidbit of information and a lesson in humility from mega-billionaire T. Boone Pickens in what is now being called the greatest historical exchange that EVER happened on Twitter.
Drake was tweeting all like “oh my life is so hard and making the first million is the hardest.” And then the oil tycoon came in and shut the rapper down hard with something like “you come whine to me after you make your first billion.”
There are a couple interesting things about this exchange and by far, the most exciting is that T. Boone Pickens follows lil old Canadian rapper Drake on Twitter. Also, he’s apparently like that wise grandpa that’s always there with his epic one liners that you’ll never match.
Drake responded with a humbled down: “@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy.” He certainly did Drake. Now you go think about what you just tweeted.
“Kutcher’s new character, Walden Schmidt, seems like a carefully drawn alternate universe caricature of Charlie Harper. Foremost that beard — something Charlie would never have had. The klutzy gentle persona. The utter cluelessness, about women or other people’s motives. He stumbles into good fortune without even knowing — his billion; the women at the bar who were charmed by his destitution and loyalty to his ex. Mostly, he appears loyal to one woman — the woman who ditched him (played a bit later by Judy Greer.)” — Verne Day, Newsday
“Kutcher’s performance was good, nearly as poker-faced fine as Sheen’s was. (Beware of the impending revisionism that Kutcher is superior to Sheen as a comic actor — Sheen really had a knack for this gig, and was a generous reactor to Cryer. Kutcher will probably prove just as skilled.)” — Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly
“Is there as much humor to be mined from a goofy, well-endowed billionaire as there was from a not-as-wealthy jingle writer who seemed to satisfy women just as easily? Early indicators suggest no, seeing as the sitcom already and quickly played the ‘Look, He Accidentally Bedded Two Hotties At Once While Alan Lay Weeping and [BLEEP]ing’ card.” — Matt Webb Mitovich, TVLine.com
The Final Word
“Kutcher showed for years on ‘That ’70s Show’ that the multi-camera sitcom format is an arena he can thrive in, and he seemed fine in his half of the episode. He’s not going to transform ‘Men’ into a show I want to watch, but he fit in very well.” — Alan Sepinwall, HitFix.com
