Angelina Jolie Syrian refugee hunger strike and Tom Cruise's pooh battle it out for this week's fake story award

This week's Fake Story Award involves a twofer:

In the red corner we have:

The angelina jolie syrian refugee hunger strike

And in the blue corner we have:

Shit-storing tom cruise

Read up on both, then decide the most worthy Fake Story Award recipient by voting in the Popdust poll below!

Here we go:

The Angelina Jolie Syrian refugee hunger strike

According to the National Enquirer, Angelina Jolie has embarked on a “secret hunger strike” to draw attention to the plight of starving Syrian refugees.

OK, so first:

It’s fairly apparent from just looking at Jolie throughout the years, that she’s been on some kind of personally motivated hunger strike since her late teens.

And, second:

If it’s a “secret” hunger strike, how on earth is that supposed to draw attention to anything?!!

But wait!

The Enquirer also has a great quote from their angelina jolie syrian refugee hunger strike insider:

Angie’s trying to save the world, but she can’t seem to save herself.

She told us, ‘If they can’t eat, I can’t eat.'

The only thing her frightening weight loss is calling attention to is her health, not the unfortunate people she’s trying to help.

Brad’s trying desperately to make Angie understand the dire straits she’s in.

Well, Jolie’s frightening weight loss is certainly getting the National Enquirer’s attention a lot recently.

They’ve run two stories about it in the past couple of weeks alone.

Shockingly Skeletal Angelina Jolie Wraps Herself In Shroud!

And, Angelina Jolie Anorexia Crisis—Down to 79Lbs!

In the latter they claim:

Angelina Jolie is a walking skeleton who could drop dead at any moment!

As the wispy star’s weight plummets to a tear-inducing all-time low of 79 pounds, The National ENQUIRER can reveal that her friends fear she’s losing a brave battle — and is in danger of suffering severe organ failure and possibly death!

Her heartbroken husband Brad Pitt is anxiously trying to get Angie, 40, to eat more and work less, but his desperate pleas have fallen on deaf ears!

Well, on a plus note, at least she has that “shroud” she wrapped herself up in when she went out to dinner.

That will definitely come in handy for when she finally loses her “brave battle.”

Shit-storing Tom Cruise:

In a wondrously insane story, US Weekly claims that Tom Cruise is leaving pooh all over his trailer on the set of the movie he’s currently filming.

Apparently, Cruise engages in a bizarre anti-aging treatment that involves him having his stool samples analyzed by doctors.

He allegedly keeps his shit in tupperware containers that he stores in his winnebago.

They quote a tom cruise and his pooh insider:

An assistant collects the samples for testing.

They can only be picked up after he’s left the Winnebago.


So, which one wins?

The angelina jolie syrian refugee hunger strike or shit-storing tom cruise?

You decide—vote in our poll now!

justin bieber prince diss instagram hoax

Can everyone just calm down and quit with the Biebs bashing?

Justin Bieber unwittingly found himself the target of fury and outrage last night after supposedly throwing shade at Prince.

Turns out though—he didn't—it was a hoax—it was totally fabricated.

As Popdust previously reported, Prince fans were left devastated after news broke yesterday that the 57-year-old music icon had died.

Social media was flooded with condolence messages and tributes—as fans, contemporaries, and celebrities alike shared their sorrow.

So, it was no surprise everybody was up in arms after the Biebs supposedly dissed the late great star.

Not to mention seemingly talked himself up as being every bit as great as Prince, at the same time.

According to Shady Music Facts—hmmmm, shouldn’t the name give it away?!!— Bieber threw his shade by way of an Instagram comment.

Musician Andrew Watt posted a touching tribute to Prince:

This past Tuesday night before my show I was picking out an outfit..

.I was so tired from the past week of endless traveling and gigging that I grabbed my Prince shirt and said fuck it I'm gonna channel the purple one tonight...

I didn't shower after the gig out of pure exhaustion...I went to sleep in that shirt and then I wore it again all day yesterday...

Today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself...devastated...the last of the greatest living guitar idol...

His connection to ALL his instruments yielded a sexual transcending aura and the world is just less fucking cool without him walking on it...

"Electric word life It means forever and that's a mighty long time But I'm here to tell you There's something else... The after world"


To which, the Biebs supposedly commented:

Well not the last greatest living performer


Shady Music Facts tweeted out a screen grab of the supposed diss, and BOOM! within minutes shit hit the Bieber fan.

Pretty much all the main entertainment news sites and gossip blogs picked up on the story today.

And, everyone is slamming Bieber for being such a jumped up little punk.

Trouble is, Bieber never actually wrote or posted that comment.

GossipCop spoke to the Biebs' hard working rep and he confirms that the screen grab is “totally fabricated.”

And, as the site points out, Shady Music Facts are the only outlet to obtain that screen grab, which is kinda weird don’t you think?

I mean, if it was real it’s guaranteed a ton of people would have screen grabbed the comment.

Gossip Cop also draws attention to Shady Music Facts being the same people that claimed “Justin Bieber follows Donald Trump on Twitter.”

Complete with another doctored screen grab of him supposedly having liked a video The Donald had posted.

Hmmm….. someone’s got it in for the Biebs.

Meanwhile, c’mon now Shady Music Facts….. Justin Bieber is more than capable of pissing people off all on his ownsome…he doesn’t need any help from you guys.

Madonna drunk dialing

Madonna drunk dialing ‘everyone she knows’ hands down wins the best fake story of the week award.

Good job National Enquirer …. good job!

As with most great stories, it's so great, because you soooo want it to be true!

We can picture this so perfectly

Madge, looking like some kind of Blanche "Baby Jane" DuBois, make-up smeared, swigging from a nearly empty bottle of vodka, gnarled hands leafing through her well thumbed, battered old little black book.

“Ha! Warren Beatty, let’s give that old bastard a call,” she slurs to herself, taking another swig.

Ring… ring…ring….ring….

“Hey Beatty, remember me? You think you’re all that dontcha? Well let me tell you… you’re nothing but a washed-up has-been you cock sucker you……”

Hangs-up, sniggering to herself.

Picks up well thumbed, battered old little black book…..gnarled hands leafing through….takes another swig…

“Ha! Guy fucking Ritchie…. let’s call that arrogant British asshole…..”

It’s such a great visual

As Popdust previously reported, amid her ongoing custody battle with Ritchie over son Rocco, Madge has seemingly been losing the plot.

She’s been turning up late for concerts, and riding around on a tricycle dressed as a clown.

She’s sexually assaulted a teenager live on stage, has been accused of slurring her words and appearing to be drunk.

So, it’s a no-brainer to spin and weave a Madonna drunk dialing story—and what a wondrous drunk dialing web the Enquirer has weaved!

Epic meltdown

The tabloid claims the 57-year-old is in the midst of an “epic meltdown” and hitting the bottle hard.

A “source” alleges:

Madonna’s in a terrible state…

She’ll have a few too many drinks and start calling everyone from Guy to her daughter Lourdes, even her former hubby Sean Penn gets them!

And that’s not it!

Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore and ex-boyfriend Carlos Leon have also been on the receiving end of the Madonna drunk dialing rampage apparently.

Off the rails

But, what about Madonna drunk dialing Vladimir Putin? The Dalai Llama? Taylor Swift? Come on guys use your imagination here!

The “source” continues:

[Madonna’s] relying on booze to help her sleep, and when she can’t, she starts calling up people.

She’s really going off the rails and no one around her is strong enough to put a stop to it.

Oh no! Poor Madge! Somebody do an intervention, STAT!

Paging Ellen Degeneres!

Perhaps she can step in when she’s finished her completely made-up Justin Bieber intervention!

Oh, that Ellen Degeneres! She just can’t help herself!

Poking her overly-concerned nose in all over the place—all up in poor “imploding” Justin Bieber’s grill.

Well, that’s what Life & Style would have you believe—because, makes total sense, right?!!!

Justin Bieber Debuts Dreads And Nobody’s Happy

Headed for trouble ellen intervention justin bieber

I mean, clearly, Ellen DeGeneres and the Biebs are such super-close friends.

So, it’s only natural she would be the one to step in when the 22-year-old is fictitiously “headed for trouble”.


Who Knew Wednesday—5 Things You Never Knew About Justin Bieber

Good job Life & Style—you’ve well and truly earned yourself the best fake story of the week award.

According to the tabloid, Ellen is so concerned about the Bieb’s mental state that she’s staging a "kind of intervention” for him.

Note: not an actual intervention...but rather, a "kind of intervention."

Is It Sexist To Make Fun Of Justin Bieber’s Mental Health?

Desperate need ellen intervention justin bieber

And, Ellen’s not planning to go it alone when she stages her "kind of intervention".....oh, no!

Apparently, Ellen has reached out to Bieber’s closest friends to get them on board—because, it appears, all those closest friends hadn’t noticed he’s in desperate need of a "kind of intervention", before Ellen pointed it out.

Justin Bieber Is So Over Meeting Fans…

Ellen knows best though—and she sees that Justin is “headed for trouble”!!

Paging Dr. Drew! ellen intervention justin bieber

Oh shit son!

Someone better call Dr. Drew.... STAT....

Justin Bieber Gets Deep—Real Deep—Wants To Live Like Jesus

A "source" tells Life & Style:

Ellen wants to stage a kind of intervention for Justin because she wants him to get some kind of psychological help to better handle his fame.

She wants Justin to take a step back from the limelight before he implodes.

She [wants] to help him before he does something really stupid.

[Ellen is] tuned in and sees that Justin is headed for trouble.

Awwwww! That’s so sweet!

Parental concerns ellen intervention justin bieber

That Ellen! She’s just so….. motherly….. she' tuned in with 22-year-old guys' needs and's kinda uncanny.

In fairness though, perhaps Ellen's just super concerned the Biebs won’t be mentally equipped to deal with parenthood.

Toby Sheldon—That Justin Bieber Plastic Surgery Lookalike—Found Dead Age 35

As Popdust previously reported, just two weeks ago Life & Style claimed Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant with Bieber’s baby.

All we can say is, Don’t go Beliebing anything you read in the tabs folks.....

prince harry moving america wife

Good news fair ladies of the U.S....Prince Harry is moving to America to find his princess!

Hahaha.... as if!

Well done Life & Style, you are the hands down winner of this week’s Best Fake Story Award.

I mean, how could you beat that?!!

Jolly good job Life & Style! Jolly good job!

I Wanna Marry Harry prince harry moving america wife

Likely inspired by watching the sadly now-cancelled ridiculousness-masquerading-as-reality-TV, that was I Wanna To Marry Harry, the real life Harry is allegedly eager to bag himself a U.S. bride.

Well, at least if he achieves his aim, he won’t be forced to abdicate from the British throne like his great grand-uncle before him.

Spill it Fergie prince harry moving america wife

Drawing on their impeccable sources within the British royal family—probably Sarah Ferguson, she gets mighty loosed lipped after a bottle or two—the tabloid spins a wondrous fairy tale that rivals even Cinderella.

Fergie Life & Style’s “palace insider” waxes lyrical:

Prince Harry has a thing for blond American women.

Harry told close friends that he’s bored of partying and dating in London and is determined to find a wife by the end of the year so he can start a family.

He’s desperate to settle down. He doesn’t want to be the last one to walk down the aisle.

Yeah, we are really buying this. Poor “desperate” Prince Harry…. somebody fix him up with Kate Hudson….STAT!

Fox petition prince harry moving america wife

No, even better, let’s petition Fox TV to bring back I Wanna To Marry Harry!

But with the real ginger minx this time.

It would be perfect—Hazza would get his pick of hot blonde Americans, and even better, he wouldn’t even have to leave home!

kim kardashian exploding butt implants

Anything headlined "Kim K’s Explosive DIS-ASS-STER!" is a winner in our eyes.

So, this week’s best fake story award was a no brainer—congratulations to the good old hacks at the National Enquirer.

New depths of ludicrousness kim kardashian exploding butt implants

The tabloid plunged to new depths of ludicrousness with their latest faux report, about Kim Kardashian’s butt implants exploding.

Kim Kardashian Responds To Slut-Shaming Haters With Empowering Essay

Now, we’re always of the belief that you should never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

And, this one is so good you almost wish it was true. But, clearly it’s not, because, National Enquirer.

Ballooning backside kim kardashian exploding butt implants

Kim Kardashian Being Sued For Being A Shitty Driver

According to the tab rag:

[Kardashian’s] ballooning backside has finally exploded. Her huge hips are due to her butt implants bursting last month.

It’s totally destroyed her natural shape and Kim’s freaking out.

Her implants leaked, and the fillers spread to her sides.

It’s caused her hips to widen dramatically.

She’s totally out of proportion right now.

As opposed to being perfectly proportioned before?

Hahaha. we don’t think so guys...but, nice try!

Why Did Kim Kardashian Go Blonde Again? Three Guesses!

Excess goop kim kardashian exploding butt implants

The Enquirer’s supposed “source” goes on to claim KK’s exploding butt disaster “will require special drains to remove the excess goop.”


Now she’s having to get emergency ‘repairs’ to put things back in their right place.

She’s the shape of a teapot at the moment, and she’s really struggling to fit into clothes.

She is suffering from a bit of discomfort from the leaks but her main priority is, as always, her looks so she’s having to undergo a series of drainage treatments before redoing it all.
