Draya Michele

When social media took the place of expensive publicists (some of whom charge $250 per hour), savvy celebrities figured out how to use the social platform to create fake scandals and PR stunts for cheap publicity.

Most notably, power couple Jay Z and BeYaki are accused of pulling off one of the biggest stunts of the year — faking marital problems to boost sagging concert ticket sales. Apparently their stunt worked: the tour reportedly took in over $100 million in tickets sales.

Less notably, reality TV star Draya Michele reportedly pulled a similar stunt by taking to Instagram to announce she and fiancé, NFL player Orlando Scandrick, had split up.

TI and Tiny

Yesterday, a well-connected insider reached out Sandrarose.com to “confirm” rumors that Atlanta Power Couple T.I. and Tiny had separated on Saturday in Los Angeles. The insider provided Sandrarose.com with information that only someone close to the couple would know. After my post was published, another close friend of T.I. and Tiny reached out to this blog by phone to not only confirm the rumors but to add that there had been tension in the couple’s marriage for nearly a year.

Terrell Owens and Rachel Snider

When the news broke that former NFL star Terrell Owens, 40, got hitched to a postal worker in a Norwalk, Calif. courthouse, many scoffed that the marriage was fake. Owens and his new bride, Rachel Snider, were reportedly in such a hurry to get married that they didn’t exchange rings.

Beyonce and Jay Z claim to be taking part in a 22-day vegan diet, which many believe is just another publicity stunt designed to generate headlines. Case in point: the paparazzi snapped photos of Beyonce wearing leather and fur while entering two separate vegan restaurants on the west coast.

Even the most uninformed vegan wouldn’t wear clothing made from animal skin or eat food containing animal products.

But attracting attention — while appearing to be ignorant of the circumstances of her actions — is what Beyonce does best.

Jacoby Cash, an animal lover, was so enraged that she wrote Beyonce a terse note on her Instagram page: “Asshole move going into a vegan restaurant in a fur. You’ve lost a fan.”

You be the judge.

50 Cent Floyd Mayweather fake stunt

50 Cent Floyd Mayweather

Over the weekend, boxer Floyd Mayweather and fading rapper 50 Cent got into a Twitter war when Mayweather refused to pay Fiddy $10,000 he won in a bet. Fiddy later revealed the Twitter beef was just a publicity stunt.

Really? We’re SHOCKED! We never would have guessed it was a PR stunt. Both of these b*tches pull stunts for attention every day, so why wouldn’t we assume that their latest antics were fake?

Move on kids. There’s nothing to see here.

  • Rapper The Game is no stranger to controversy. With every album release The Game pushes the envelope of respectability and morality. The Game’s latest album cover is already stirring debates among the religious set on social networking websites.

    On the west coast rapper’s 5th studio album titled Jesus Piece, Jesus is portrayed as a gang banger with a red bandana covering his face. The color red signifies the Bloods, a violent west coast gang that The Game is known to be affiliated with.

  • Musician and con artist Wyclef Jean thinks he isn’t getting enough of the right kind of attention. So he tweeted this pic of his birthday present to himself, a brand new Ducati motorcycle. Jean recently turned 43, just a month after he shut down his Yele Haiti foundation — after misappropriating $16 million in donations for victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Of course we tried to warn donors that Jean is shady, but no one listened. The NY Times wrote an article detailing Jean’s massive con scheme to line his own pockets. Diaoly Estimé, who runs an orphanage in Haiti, told reporters, “If I had depended on Yéle, these kids would all be dead by now.”

    The director of an Ohio soup kitchen is furious at vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan for showing up uninvited, donning a crisp white apron and washing CLEAN pans for a photo op.

    Normally I would say so what? All politicians are the same: they pander to voters, then after they are elected the voters cease to exist in their eyes.

    But this seemingly innocent faux pas comes on the heels of Mr. Ryan’s anemic performance against VP Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate. Not to mention that President Obama is leading Ryan’s running mate Mitt Romney in early voting.

    You gon’ learn to listen to your auntie when I tell you something…

    According to gossip website TMZ, American Idol winner Jennifer Hudson is calling BS on the Mariah/Nicki Minaj fake feud. I agree with J-Hud. It’s funny how the media (and bloggers) run wild with every silly thing these celebrities do for attention.
