For many a ’90s kid, VH1’s Behind the Music offered you your first glimpse into the rockstar lifestyle — highs, lows, laxatives and all. But now that the internet has rendered us effectively dead inside, VH1’s new parody series is giving us the only thing that matters any more: Twitter. Yup, it’s time for Behind the Tweet.
The digital shorts take hard-hitting looks at some of the big(ish?) tweets of our time. Monumental moments like this, for instance:
To anyone that said I wouldn't make it, I say this to you. pic.twitter.com/JRx3KPsW7K

Other investigative reports include peeks behind the short, hurried thoughts of George Ezra, notable non-Beyoncé Michele Williams, and comedy duo Key & Peele. And while some seem unsure of whether or not the series referring to Hannibal Buress as a “TV sex symbol” is being done in earnest, we assure you that this is very much a parody.
The bigger issue at hand is actually that I myself had this very same vision back in September.
the only two tweets I have in drafts say “communism” and “denim skirts” respectively ty this has been behind the tweets
