Didn't see a topic about this but this has been blowing up the past 48 hours and I thought I'd share. Basically, a singer named Lucia Cole has been exposed for building an entire social media presence and fanbase using stolen pictures and videos, fake Twitter/Wikipedia/forum accounts, a fake bio (she was apparently a songwriter for the likes of Mariah Carey and Kelly Clarkson), and fake gossip.

But the cherry on top is an album, available on iTunes and playable on Apple Music and other streaming services, composed entirely of Jessica Simpson songs. Not covers, but songs, re-uploaded to iTunes with different titles under a different album cover. All while she was able to land interviews with small media outlets.

It's basically a perverse music industry version of Catfish, and it's f***ing nuts. The whole #exposé can be found here, and it's worth reading the whole thing.

Talented person.

Feel so uncomfortable for all the people she used pictures from though, and the fake texts especially. This is the sort of person that makes having any kind of internet identity awkward.

Probably got Jessica Simpson more publicity than she's got in a while!

I don't think I've ever seen anything like this before, it is really quite bizarre, like some fictional mystery or something. She is quite clearly batshit, but you've gotta admire the effort!

It's on Spotify and iTunes so whatever money they've been making from it is very very minuscule but still very very illegal. She's apparently "signed" to Republic though, according to her iTunes and Spotify pages, no idea wtf's going on there.

Just read through all 118 pages of the thread. "Transvocal chanteuse" :'''''''')

Also, since I last posted there have been new developments re: a third fake persona thought to be from the same mastermind. This is beyond.
