We're probably all familiar with the occasional random Twitter accounts that state that our favorite musicians and performing artists have passed. This is the stuff of gossip and attention mongering. So, after your initial shock, you Google it just to make sure. We never expected this from CNN. Yeah, CNN: NME stated that CNN 's Monday morning iReport said "At 4:32 AM EST, it was reported that Gotye had shot himself in the head with a 9mm handgun." Gotye promptly tweeted "I'm not dead. #Pinkalbumtitles."
So, wipe that brow because Gotye is alive...then sweat again because a news source like CNN got this wrong.
