Courtney Love quits Twitter (again); Wyclef Jean enters academia

Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this afternoon...

1. Courtney Love breaks up with Twitter (again): Around noon Eastern time today, Courtney Love posted this succinct tweet: "I'm off twitter, that photo was meant for a boy friend." So apparently the naked-ish photos that Love uploaded last week -- the NSFW ones in which she reclines on a chair wearing only a pair of panties -- were a mistake. They've since been removed. Surprisingly, these equally unappetizing pix were apparently not mistakes. Now we wait and see: can the compulsive Tweeter really stay away this time? Love previously quit Twitter in October 2009 and May of this year. [@CourtneyLoveUK]

Two more stories after the jump...

2. Wyclef Jean gets Brown fellowship: Wyclef Jean's plan to become Haiti's next president may have been thwarted, but the musician turned activist has accepted an appointment as a visiting fellow in Brown University's Department of Africana Studies for the 2010-11 academic year. According to the Associated Press, Jean "will engage in activities related to its Haiti Initiative, including lectures, faculty conversations and classes." Jean says his time at Brown will be "a period of learning and reflection." [Associated Press]

3. Celebs help 'It Gets Better': Anne Hathaway, Ian Somerhalder and Jenny McCarthy are among stars appearing in a new viral video for the "It Gets Better" campaign, which hopes to reach teens who may feel depressed or bullied about their homosexuality. The Trevor Project launched the renewed campaign after Rutgers student Tyler Clementi committed suicide following an incident in which his roommate broadcast his sexual encounters with another man live on the Internet.

perhaps she's going to pursue 'meaningful art' instead... maybe she'll pull a joaquim phoenix and become a reclusive hipster rap artist. Growing the beard wouldn't make her less sexy either...
