Kids. They do grow up so fast.
And sometimes they're 22 before you know it, partying too hard at LIV and driving drunk on New Year's Eve accompanied by domestic pugilists.
Ever the overachiever -- his first single came out at 13, after all -- the artist formerly known as 'Lil Bow Wow hit the trifecta of a-hole-itude Thursday night in Miami, and aired his business on Twitter for the world to see.
"Face numb im whippin the lambo. Tipsy as [redacted]. Just left livmiami," he wrote.
And just in case you didn't catch the part about driving his Lamborghini while intoxicated, he repeated himself.
Ah, yes. In other words, "I'm so intoxicated! Why did I get behind the wheel of this Lamborghini? That guy who punched Rihanna in the face, Chris Brown, may need to chauffeur us after we party more at the next club."
Sigh. Have we learned nothing from Dante Stallworth?
Naturally, the public got hold of it, and by the next morning Bow Wow (real name: Shad Moss) had replaced his tweets with an apology -- of sorts:
Oh, okay. We get it. You're sorry for the Twitter post, because it will jeopardize your upcoming projects. Not because you shouldn't drive drunk, in a Lambo or otherwise. Pardon us while we kick of our #2010 year with a giant eye-roll.
Of course, on the plus side, we now know where to follow Bow Wow on Twitter, to get a heads up next time he's coming to town. If we're going to be killed by a drunk celebrity, it should at least be one who's had a hit single in the last five years.
