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
