April 1st, better known as April Fools Day, is right around the corner and you know what that means… FAKE NEWS! Okay, maybe not actual fake news (we get that every day, apparently!) but you better be prepared to be lied to or pranked by who you thought
were your loved ones. (Spoiler: after April 1st, they are no longer your loved ones.) Or, if you're the one usually pranking people, then we are here to help you get in the mood with some prank inspiration from our favorite musicians. We have chosen 10 of the best pranks pulled by artists like Drake and Rihanna - get ready, because you're about to laugh a lot.
10. Demi Lovato As Lyft Driver
Imagine getting into your Lyft and striking up a conversation with your driver only to find out later that they are very
famous and had you fooled the entire time. Well, that's exactly what Demi Lovato did to some fans while on tour in Denver, Colorado. The singer partnered up with Undercover Lyft to give some lucky fans a ride as "Sam the Lyft driver." No crazy makeup or change of voice here, as she only wore a hat and sunglasses to keep her true identity a secret. It's easy to forget she's also an actress since her main focus has been music lately but with this video, you realize she's still got it. She can fool just about anyone. She was also a good sport when some people insulted her...
9. Justin Bieber And Ellen Degeneres Bathroom Scare
Ellen Degeneres is possibly the funniest person on daytime TV, and that's partially because of all the hilarious pranks she likes to pull on both her audience members and her guests. This time, with the help of Justin Bieber, she decided to scare some of the audience members before the start of the show. Watch as they hide in a women's bathroom stall in a warm embrace while they wait for someone to walk in on them. The laughter starts when some recognize Bieber and their reactions are priceless. Let's just hope no one trying to actually go to the bathroom wet their pants!
8. Zayn, Louis, And Nickelodeon Prank One Direction
Zayn and Louis help Nickelodeon prank the rest of the One Direction members in this very funny video. Whoever thought of pranking famous teenage boys by making them believe they're about to witness a birth should win some kind of prize. The group's reactions are just priceless. If I were in their shoes, I'd have no idea how to handle that situation as the fake pregnant producer is very believable. She even had Harry Styles
doing breathing exercises with her, you have to see it for yourself.
7. Lady Gaga As RuPaul's Drag Race Contestant
Leave it up to Lady Gaga to prank RuPaul Drag Race
contestants by making herself a part of the race. It makes perfect sense - she is notorious for taking fashion inspiration from drag queens and vice versa. The contestants actually thought that the race was over because her look was SO fierce, she resembled the best Lady Gaga impersonator in the world. You can actually watch the entire episode and see how one of the contestants is brought to tears once he realizes it's actually Lady Gaga.
6. Nick Jonas As Forever 21 Employee
Who better than a Jonas Brother
to help you out in the women's section of Forever 21? Nick Jonas pranked fans as he pretended to be Forever 21 employee "Bradley," who gets told that he resembles Nick Jonas a lot. Don't forget that, like former co-Disney star Demi Lovato, he is also an actor, which is why he was able to fool many of the customers. In the end, he might not have been that helpful since he gave some of the girls the wrong sizes... but once he finally admitted to be who he truly is, they didn't really care about the clothes.
5. John Mayer As A Bear
John Mayer took the opportunity to see some of his fans before one of his concerts and no, not with the usual meet and greet. Because that's boring, right? The funny singer/guitarist decided to put on a bear suit and walk around with a megaphone in the parking lot of the concert venue. He took some jabs at himself and others as no one was able to recognize him because well, he's a bear for all they know. The man can write songs and sing like no other and now, he's also a comedian.
4. Fake Drake In I Witness News
Speaking of fake news, here we have Drake dressed as a reporter interviewing people about himself on the street. Classic. What better way to have people say what they truly think of you to your face? Again, don't forget he is also an actor (Degrassi!!!
) so this was pretty easy for him to accomplish. He also had hair and makeup done to disguise his identity.
3. Rihanna Pranks Jimmy Kimmel
Oh RiRi, the woman can do no wrong. In this video she pranks TV show host Jimmy Kimmel by making it rain in his bedroom at 1:00 AM and blasting "Bitch Better Have My Money." Was this song about Kimmel all along? At one point, she even started jumping on his bed. He's obviously half asleep and very confused, but later on understands. Honestly, I'd prefer waking up to this than an alarm clock.
2. Adele As Jenny The Nanny
1. Justin Bieber Pranks TMZ
British singer Adele is known for letting herself take part in pranks for certain shows but she outdid herself with this one. She gets full hair and makeup done to look like a different version of herself so that she can be able to blend in with a group of Adele impersonators. Now, this is one singer who doesn't have much of an acting background, but she still managed to have them all fooled... Until the end when she starts singing.
This made Justin the king of pranks after he pranked TMZ. This was his way of getting back at them for years of harassment by their paparazzi and fake headlines. The Biebs took to Twitter by posting: "As promised taking all fan phone calls TODAY at (888) 847 9869. Talk to u soon!" and later deleted it. As you can imagine, the number he gave wasn't actually his but the site's personal tip line. In this video we get to witness their reaction to the prank and how they decided to deal with it. Can't really blame Bieber for doing it though.
