Amber Tamblyn Pretends to Be Amber Rose, Trolls Tyrese Gibson

Gosh, this is good: After being confused for Amber Rose by Tyrese Gibson, former Joan of Arcadia star Amber Tamblyn decided to go all the way with the case of mistaken identity. It started because Tamblyn’s middle name is Rose, showing her name as "Amber Rose" on an e-mail that both Gibson and Tamblyn were CC’d on. After Gibson emailed her thinking she was Wiz Khalifa’s fiance saying "Hit me now," Tamblyn responded, "Sorry boo I would but my neighbors is really into exotic animals and I promised I would go over and see their new baby Ball Python." Somehow, this didn’t throw him off, and the two began corresponding about a number of "demo tracks" which Tamblyn claimed were "important to the feministical evolution and fourth wave movement of Woman-Beats and Girl-Music." 

The songs are hilariously wack, something that Gibson, to be fair, immediately picked up on. "That song was not it… not even remotely," he says in one response. "What u on?" is another one. Eventually, Gibson figured out that Tamblyn wasn’t being entirely truthful, and cut off the communication. You can read the entire back and forth at Street Boners and TV Carnage, and really, it’s something else. The site reports that Gibson is apparently mad as hell, but come on, it’s just funny all around and he doesn’t come off bad at all. How can anyone who made three Transformers movies be mad about wasting their time?
