Have you ever seen a viral tweet of a celebrity doing the rounds on social media and had to double take at the outlandish claims they were reportedly making? There’s a very good chance you might have fallen victim to the notorious Twitter account Fake Showbiz News. Hey, at least they’re transparent about it. As per Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover, the account self describes as a “clearly labelled parody account.”

The page, which owes its success to the very tame and silly parodying of celebrities as well as boasting an impressive 158,900 thousand followers, seems to have a thing for Ellie Goulding. The chart-topping 36-year-old is often at the mercy of the notorious account, being painted as a naive but incredibly well-meaning Brit.

These posts had us in tears, so here’s some of our favourites from Fake Showbiz News’ Goulding obsession. May it never go away.

1. The Ellie Goulding Fake Showbiz News saga began long ago, in 2018

In a land a long long time ago (aka, 2018), bizarre Ellie Goulding tweets began to show up on the parody account, thus giving birth to the singer’s naive persona. It was not only a happy respite from the usual social media algorithm, but also a hilarious take on someone as successful and acclaimed as Goulding.

2. Ellie Goulding can’t believe flights regularly leave from Copenhagen to Tokyo

‘Who on Earth needs to be in Copenhagen one day, and Tokyo the next?’ wonders the celebrity. We’re with you Ellie. It’s just excessive, isn’t it?

3. Ellie Goulding and the Earth’s rotations

A personal favourite of ours, this killer tweet has the Calvin Harris collaborator bemused by gravity and the Earth’s rotations. In her defence, it is quite confusing, so we forgive you fake Goulding—how we’re not constantly clattering into stuff is a genuine mystery.

4. Ellie Goulding isn’t a terrorist

We’ve all been stuck in security at the airport, desperate to get through, thinking “this is pointless, why would anyone want to blow up a 4 am flight from London to Benidorm?” Well, worry not, because fake Goulding was thinking the exact same thing.

5. Why did it take so long for them to build the Sydney Opera House?

I mean the ‘Lights’ singer has a point here. 14 years? Come on guys.

6. “I just thought they were saying buzz,” said fake Ellie Goulding on bees

This one really ruined us. It’s the epitome of the character and we’re so here for it.

7. Ellie Goulding’s pitches for combatting homelessness

Grounded flights during the COVID-19 pandemic led fake Goulding to this brain wave. The spaces can double as a shelter and maybe the “best behaved ones” can sit business. Tiny bit problematic but hey, she means well.

Whether it’s Goulding, Tom Holland, Marvin Humes from JLS, or some other celebrity, Fake Showbiz News always delivers on strange personas and big laughs.

We love how quintessentially British the humour is. Keep em coming, because the internet is obsessed with Fake Showbiz News consistency and wit with its hilarious ideas, and bizarre storylines.
