Lady Gaga Death Rumor: A Giant Hoax

by at . Comments

Given her massive fan base and given that she is seemingly everywhere, it's not too big of a shock that Lady Gaga would be the subject of a celebrity death hoax.

However, for the same reasons, it was easy to establish that this was not the case, unlike with someone who's a little more off the radar (say, Spencer Pratt).

An online scam claims Lady Gaga was found dead in a hotel room. Not the case, but at least the hoax-spreaders went for the traditional celebrity die-off situation.

Gaga Goes Gaga

Some enterprising cyber-criminals are, for some reason, spreading the following headline via Facebook: "BREAKING: Lady Gaga Found Dead in Hotel Room."

It links to a BBC News story and a description reading "This is the most awful day in US history." If you click the link, you end up on a fake BBC spam site.

We got out of there real quick, but the bottom line is that Facebook scammers are trying to pilfer you to "Like" stuff and earn a commission. Simply pathetic.

Mother Monster is alive and well, we assure you - the singer was seen cheering on her hometown New York Giants at stupidly-named MetLife Stadium Monday.

New York won, 28-16, as St. Louis may suck more than Facebook spammers.
