Twitter Music is launching on iPhone and the web today, and you no longer have to be a star to enjoy it. After a short period of testing with select music artists and celebrities, the music discovery service will be made available to everyone later on today.

Despite the fact that she uses an iPhone, Alicia Keys joined BlackBerry’s CEO onstage today to announce her new position at the company as “Global Creative Director.” After giving a creepy analogy about her and BlackBerry “exclusively dating,” Keys skirted a question about what phone she used before her BlackBerry. That’s probably because she was a self-proclaimed “iPhone junky.”
The idea of a famous artist/non-technology expert like Alicia Keys getting in bed with BlackBerry may seem weird, but this isn’t something new. For years struggling tech companies have been using faux-celebrity partnerships and endorsements as a desperate plea for attention.
Still, even she has to put it down every once in awhile. Here Hudgens catches a limo toting a Mac laptop, dangerously sans case.

What, no iPhone?
There were some good cameos in Adam Sandler’s guffaw-fest “You Don’t Mess With The Zohan,” like Charlotte Rae, (Mrs. Garrett in “Facts of Life”) as a superannuated, sexed-up hair salon client, but Mariah came through with a spot-on Mac endorsement.
Mariah plays herself in the movie. While she’s in her dressing room, Zohan comes in to fight nemesis Phantom there. The fight is interrupted when Zohan gets a phone call. The dialogue detours into product placement territory, starting with the make of his phone, then this gem, about two-thirds through the scene…
Mariah: “I can never figure that Bluetooth shit out though.”
Zohan: “Mariah, it’s very simple you stick it to your PowerBook. Go ahead, Phantom will tell you.”
Phantom: “Mac or PC?”
Mariah’s assistants, in unison: “Mac.”
Spotted a Mac in a movie or magazine? Let me know.
Victoria’s Secret models Gisele Bundchen and Alessandra Ambrosio in between takes on an ad shoot busy with Mac laptops.
Funny how big those lap tops look poised on those tiny, model laps.
Seen an iCelebrity? Let me know.

Hillary Duff is often papped with her iPhone 3G. This time, we’re pleased to note that Duff, who used to play clumsy but lovable Lizzie McGuire, appears to have a firm grip on it. And that no permanent damage was caused when she let the phone take a tumble.
The Oscar-winning actress looks great, even with no makeup, unmatched sweats and tangled up in the cord of her iPod touch.
Got to wonder about that book she’s lugging titled “Diagnosis and Treatment for Multiple Personality Disorder.” Maybe it’s for new part, or maybe for juggling the life of a star-mom-perfume maker….
Next time she might try going for cover under an iPhone.

From Juicy Couture, the people who made terrycloth sweat suits hot, come three iPhone jelly cases in bright pink, blue and yellow with logo tags.
Hopefully some of the butter-fingered celebs who made Juicy famous will protect their iPhones with these, declaring “iChoose Juicy,” instead of “assistant go get me another phone” to the world.
$55 for a set of three. Available for pre-order.
The movie, based on Sophie Kinsella’s book of the same title, is about a 25-year-old financial journalist who can’t stop overheating her credit cards. And finds a wealthy husband. Or something like that.
Film producers didn’t have to go too far to put a Mac in the movie.
On page 335 of the book, the Becky Bloomwood character has “a crisp copy of the Financial Times under one arm, a pair of tortisehell glasses perched on my head, my clunky executive briefcase in one hand and an AppleMac laptop (sic) in the other. Maybe I over did it.”
Nah, we think it’s just the right touch.
