Published Aug 17, 2010When we heard the rumour that David Bowie would be working with Lady Gaga on her upcoming album, we had suspicions it was too crazy to be true. Turns out, it was.
The story was put to rest in a statement on Bowie's official website, which reads, "The suggestion that David Bowie is producing and participating in the production of Lady Gaga's next album is untrue and a hoax."
You've got to give the prankster credit for this one: whoever forged that document about the collaboration did a good job of making it look official, even going so far as to black out some of the details.
Thanks to Billboard for the heads-up.
