    This is very often thing on the web to shock people with the pseudo-deaths of their idols. Why? People need sensations, their sites be visited, their commercial been seen and so on. I still, find it very gross speculating on someone’s death. The more hilarious thing is that the celebrities than have to convince their fans they are yet alive.))
