Charlie Sheen tweets his personal phone number

Charlie Sheen accidentally tweeted his cell phone number to 5 million followers on the micro-blogging service Twitter.

“310-954-7277 Call me bro. C,” Sheen tweeted from the Las Vegas restaurant Guy Savoy last week. What was intended to be a direct message to Justin Beiber, quickly spread through the Twitterverse. While, the message has since been deleted, but the retweets can still be seen on Twitter.

The Daily Telegraph claims a source witnessed Sheen’s phone go wild after the tweet.

“Charlie’s phone immediately went into meltdown. It was ringing wildly, and he got 1,800 text messages in minutes. Charlie saw the funny side and answered the phone a few times, saying things like ‘Ray’s Pizza’ and ‘Winning’,” the source said.

Don’t think you’ll get through to the former “Two and a Half Men” actor anytime soon, goddesses. The Telegraph’s source said, “Charlie was, like, ‘I guess I need a new phone’.”

This isn’t the first Twitter DM fail to get the attention of the public. Former New York congressman Rep. Anthony Weiner got into hot water over a lewd photo, which was accidentally tweeted to his followers last spring.

The actor joined Twitter earlier this year, setting a Guinness World Record for the fasted to a million followers. Immediately, Sheen began popularizing words like “winning,” “tiger blood” and “goddesses” in reference to his girlfriends.

Freida Pinto at LAX airport

Beautiful Indian actress and model Freida Pinto smiles as she touches down at LAX airport on Saturday (December 10) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old Immortals actress is back in the U.S. after spending time in Europe, where she attended the Chanel Paris-Bombay Show at the Grand Palais in Paris, France.

Freida recently spoke with the Wall Street Journal about how she’d like to play a variety of roles, not just parts in more independent features.

“I still enjoy films like 300 and Gladiator, and actually when I watch the films I see myself fitting into some of those roles; I feel, why not? Why not be part of something like that as well,” she said.

Taylor Swift gets praised from Flo Rida

Taylor Swift has shared the stage with some of the biggest (and most surprising) artists during her Speak Now Tour. Everyone from Nicki Minaj and Selena Gomez to Bruce Springsteen has graced the stage with the pop darling in 2011.

During a Miami tour stop last month, the singer brought Flo Rida onstage to perform his very blush-inducing track “Right Round.” And if you were surprised to hear about the collaboration, Flo told MTV News at Los Angeles’ Jingle Ball over the weekend that he was just as shocked.

“I was in Australia. I got home, and I was actually staying in my condo for the day,” he explained. “And I looked down, ’cause my condo, it’s right across the street from the arena, and I was like, ‘I wonder who’s performing?’ So I went down there, spur-of-the-moment, and they told me it was Taylor.”

Initially, Flo Rida just wanted a chance to catch the show, but when he spoke to her people, it turned into a whole different opportunity. “I spoke with them, and they asked me to perform,” he said. “And she was very nice and very humble. I had an amazing time. Her fans are over-the-top. It was crazy. Much love to Taylor Swift.”

Swift wrapped up her tour in New York last month. During her Atlanta stop over the summer, she brought another rapper onstage with her: T.I. “I was pleasantly surprised and confused,” T.I. told MTV News of receiving the phone call from Swift. “I was confused because I know it’s a phenomenal opportunity, but being T.I. — the Rubberband Man — and Taylor Swift being America’s Sweetheart, I had just gotten out of prison, like, two days [earlier], and all of a sudden my phone rings.”

While the hip-hop appearances on her tour might seem surprising, Swift assured us in October that she really loves the genre. “I’m a huge hip-hop fan, and it’s been so amazing to have so many incredible artists come out and to get to sing the hooks on their songs that I’ve been blasting in my car for the last couple years,” she said. “It’s been awesome. I couldn’t have asked for more amazing special guests on this tour.”
