10 Celebrity Quotes That Were Definitely Made Up
After a fake quote from Morgan Freeman went viral last weekend, it’s become more apparent how we just accept quotes come from certain people without questioning. A day won’t pass on your Twitter timeline or Tumblr feed without a fake quote from one of your favorite artists — some so outrageously uncharacteristic that we wonder WHY anyone would believe it came from the artist in the first place! So to indulge ourselves, we compiled a list of the most apparent.
Good luck trying to find where this quote actually came from. It couldn’t be attributed as a lyrical quote, because it doesn’t rhyme. Also, Drake wouldn’t know a thing about a woman rejecting him because before his rap superstardom, he played Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian show Degrassi, so it’s hard for anybody to believe he ever had an issue keeping women. Not before those awful awkward years ended, anyway.
The first red flag about this quote is that there is absolutely no mention of cannabis. Second, this is actually a lyric from Jhene Aiko’s track “Do Better Blues” from her 2011 mixtape, sailing soul(s). Sorry, Taylor Gang.
A lot of fake Twitter accounts have been cracked down on since celebrities started caring more about what its perceived they say, especially on the internet. @Mr_KanyeWest is an account that might have been forced to admit they’re a parody, but still tweet as though they’ve got authority (and, ironically, still get retweeted as such). Which is why this gem stood out for obvious reasons.
This parody Trey Songz account, despite its mere 128,000 followers, compared to the verified Trey’s 5 million, still gets replies from women as though they were Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl himself. This tweet received replies such as “I Love You Trey” and shows itself as ironic after Songz’s most recent legal issues stemming from him allegedly hitting a fan with a wad of cash resulting in a black eye.
If anybody has great relationship advice, its “Lil Wayne.” Trust us, he has four baby mothers, and those are just the ones we know about.
This is very obviously not the real Bill Clinton, and although deep down we would like for this to have been a comment the former President made during this year’s presidential debates — it wasn’t. But it still got a whole lot of circulation on the internet, anyway. Instead we wonder what Bill really did that night.
Rihanna’s not one to easily be misquoted, mainly because her lyrics serve for Facebook statuses and tweets for days, but this time, her fans were completely off. If you had access to MTV in 1998 (or anytime after that until they quit playing actual music), you definitely know these lyrics are from Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” off the Armageddon soundtrack.
I’m sorry Mr. Fake Chainz, but we’d like to contest that.
Personally? None. But I’m sure if Frank Ocean ever had, he’d take the experience, use his immense talent and express himself much more articulately than the tweet above. Sorry Mr. “Oceaan”.
The holy grail of fake Twitter accounts (for comedic purposes only).
