Alison Pill topless tweet an accident for 'Newsroom' actor -- kind of

Today’s trek though the Twitter world that increasingly is becoming the pop-culture world finds yet another embarrassing tweet, a bounce for the Boss, many other items, and the mystery music video.

OOPS: These things just keep happening, Entertainment Weekly, “There is now a topless photo of doe-eyed Newsroom star Alison Pill floating around on the Internet. But the picture wasn’t uploaded by a vindictive ex or a phone hacker — Pill mistakenly tweeted the photo herself Wednesday morning, inadvertently showing her goods to 13,790 followers.”

THANKS, MR. PRESIDENT: Ah, the power of suggestion, per Billboard, “The President meets the Boss on this week's Billboard charts, thanks to the Democratic National Convention. After Bruce Springsteen's song "We Take Care Of Our Own" was played at the end of President Obama's speech at the convention on Sept. 6, the song surged with a 409% sales gain. In the week ending Sept. 9, it sold 2,000 downloads -- its best sales week since March.”

MEANWHILE: Remember this group?, per the New York Times, “Matchbox Twenty has reached No. 1 on the Billboard album chart for the first time with “North” (Atlantic), its first studio record in a decade. “North” sold 95,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and leads a handful of high-charting new titles as the music industry begins releasing its fall albums.”

STILL WAITING: And hoping, per the Huffington Post, “Most stars shun the "O word" – Oscar – when they might be in the running for an Academy Award, not wanting to jinx their chances or look too eager. Bill Murray has no problem dissecting Hollywood's highest honors. A best actor nominee for 2003's "Lost in Translation," Murray could have Oscar prospects again as Franklin Delano Roosevelt in "Hyde Park on the Hudson," a comic drama that played the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival.”

SELMA BLAIR: Of a breakup, per Us Weekly, “The Anger Management actress, 40, has quietly parted ways with fashion designer boyfriend Jason Bleick, 42, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly. "They were fighting nonstop," says one source of the duo, parents to 14-month-old Arthur.”

WORTH NOTING: Just the facts, per the Los Angeles Times, “In the world of classical music, Clara Schumann's husband, Robert, is widely known. Yet Clara was not just wife and mother, but a virtuoso pianist. Clara is getting worldwide attention Thursday, on the occasion of her 193rd birthday, with a Google Doodle. Though Robert was 10 years older than Clara, her career started flourishing before his.”

NEW PARENTS: It’s a boy, per People, “The littlest Lachey has arrived. Nick and Vanessa welcomed a son on Wednesday, Sept. 12, they confirm to PEOPLE exclusively. “We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement.”

WWMD?: Hollywood wonders, per The Hollywood Reporter, “If Mitt Romney is elected president, he'll take office with fewer personal ties to Hollywood than any chief executive since Dwight D. Eisenhower. But because the entertainment industry since has become an international economic powerhouse and the producer of America's premier cultural export, it's inevitable that Romney would, in some sense, have to "go Hollywood."

SIDE EFFECTS: Good and bad, per The Wrap, “The New York City board of health voted Thursday to approve Mayor Michael Bloomberg's restrictions on the sale of sugary drinks, a decision likely to cut into movie-theater revenues. The vote, which takes effect in four months, bans restaurants, theaters and stadiums in the city's five boroughs from selling sugary colas that are larger than 16 ounces.”

JOLLY NICE JOB: And a proud prince, per E!, “It may have been her first speech abroad, but Kate Middleton came off like an old pro. During her and Prince William's visit to Hospis Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, the Duchess of Cambridge took a moment to share a few words. "William and I are hugely excited to be in Malaysia—this, our first-ever visit—and are absolutely delighted to have been invited to join you all here," Kate said as she stood at a podium outside the facility.”

HARD TO BELIEVE: Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart faces accusation, per TMZ, “Multiple law enforcement agencies tell TMZ ... Hart -- real name Michael Hartman -- has been accused of assaulting a person at a Mickey Hart Band show on Sept. 8 at Terrapin Hill Farm in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.”

AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video.
