Alas, it was too good (or bad) to be true. Late last night we received an email straight from J&D’s headquarters, fessing up that it was all an April Fool’s Day hoax. However, judging from all the attention it got, we wouldn’t be surprised if they went ahead and moved forward with production. Keep reading »
Lady Gaga kind of has an unfair advantage when it comes to making headlines—girl is so crazy that even the most whack claims are plausible. “Gaga Marries Siberian Goldfish”? Sure. “Lady Gaga Claims She Was Raised On Alien Colony”? We could see that. So when we saw the following news item this morning—”Lady Gaga To Design Collection For Alexander McQueen”—we didn’t for a second doubt it and thought, Whoa, we’re gonna have some awesome blogging material once pics of this come out.
