Charlie Sheen wants an intern with #TigerBlood

By Jenna Johnson
Washington Post Editors

Well, here's a summer gig that promises to be memorable: Charlie Sheen tweeted this afternoon that he's looking to hire "a #winning INTERN with #TigerBlood."

The social media internship will focus on "executing a social media strategy" and "leveraging his social network" by monitoring Sheen's social media accounts, preparing for online projects and increasing Sheen's number of Twitter followers (so far he has more than 2 million), according to the posting Sheen linked to in his tweet.

And unlike a lot of internships out there, Sheen plans to pay his intern.

The "Team Sheen" ad is part of a sponsorship deal between Sheen and, which connects students with employers offering internships, according to the Associated Press. The paid endorsement was set up by the start-up, which arranges pay-to-tweet deals with celebs. Neither company would discuss the financial arrangements,the AP reported, but micro-endorsements like this one usually cost $1,000 to $50,000 per tweet.

The first-round of applications are due Friday at midnight ... so, um, start winning now.

This should be in the entertainment section. Just because it uses the word internship that does not make it worthy of the education section.

Kids you already know me and the chipmunks are turning garbage bins on the street right now looking for pints of tiger’s blood cause if we were interns I know that’s what Coco would have us do when he finally got round to waking up from Sodom and Gomarah.

Don’t you wish you were an out of controlled over paid movie star too?
