Rumors, myths, and stories come naturally to any part of society. We've all heard the latest gossip about our friends and naturally, we've heard the latest gossip about celebrities - but at some point we need to let it go. Ridiculous stories are funny at first, but once the tale has had its time to shine, we just need to move on. These are some celebrity stories that are simply not true, and in our opinion are way past their due date. We're here debunking the myths so we can all collectively move on.
1. Elvis Isn't Dead
Listen, as much as we wish it wasn't true, the King of Rock 'n' Roll is dead. Ever since Elvis Presley's passing, there have been multiple rumors about him faking his own death, with reports that 'John Burrows' (aka Elvis in disguise) bought a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires at Memphis Airport and since then has been living incognito in Argentina. Yes, we get why people like the story, but it's time to face the facts. Elvis Presley has died, but on the positive side, his music hasn't and never will. The legacy of the King lives on, and that's more than enough for us.
2. Lorde Is Older Than She Seems
The melancholy "Royals" pop-singer Lorde has been subject to a circulating rumour stating that she is a whopping 45 years old. Lorde, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, is 24 - nearly half the age of the rumours about her. She has even produced a birth certificate showing her birthday to be in 1996 to prove this, but some people still don't want to believe it. The culprits responsible for this rumour are the satirical cartoon show South Park, who claimed in an episode that Lorde was in fact a 45-year-old geologist, and the father of Stan, the main character. Seems funny, and it was, until people took it way too seriously.
3. Walt Disney Froze His Body
This myth that Walt Disney's body was cryogenically frozen has been doing the rounds for some time. It sounds like a good one; he was frozen so that in the distant future, when it's possible, they will be able to unfreeze his body and the legend will awaken. The reason this rumor came into existence was because Walt Disney was getting old at around the same time that cryogenics were being developed, and he had shown a personal interest in it. This does not mean that he actually did it - he was in fact cremated, with his ashes buried in a memorial park in Los Angeles.
4. Who Prince Harry's Real Dad Is
The royal family is a hotbed for rumors as a result of them being such a popular focus of public attention. Throughout the years there have been many myths surrounding them, one of the popular ones being that Prince Charles isn't Prince Harry's real dad, but rather it is James Hewitt, a former British officer known for his affair with Diana. Now, since Diana did have an affair with this man you can see how this would seem true, but on the other hand, there's a big flaw in the picture - Harry was born before Diana met Hewitt! So there goes that one; bye-bye!
5. Stevie Wonder Can See
The rumor that states that Stevie Wonder isn't actually blind is quite a flattering one to him, to be honest. It does seem incredible and unbelievable that someone without the ability to see can be such an incredible singer, songwriter, and pianist, but the truth is, those are the facts. People claim that he goes to basketball matches and buys TVs so, therefore, must be able to see, but really this is clutching at straws. Plus, he would still be a legend if he was blind or not, so why would he fake the condition when there's nothing in it for him? It's just not true.
6. Beyonce Wasn't Pregnant
The last rumour states that Beyonce wasn't actually pregnant with her first child, Blue Ivy. This rumour came about thanks to reports that she rented an entire floor of a hospital to give birth (a claim that Beyonce denied and called 'over the top ridiculous') which was done in order to hide something. People speculated that she actually used a surrogate, or was trying to claim Jay-Z's illegitimate child as her own. Now we can see the beauty of Blue Ivy, we can see both of her parents shining through her, and it's clear that the rumours were just giving people an excuse to talk trash when really there was none.
