Jorja’s not dead yet … probably

I generally ignore parody sites, but since people have been getting confused, I want to explain about Mediamass.

The Mediamass Project is amazingly simple: Media criticism through satire. It’s like the Onion (also not a real news site), but with the express intent of showing you how stupid news is in a less obvious way. In my experience the Onion is pretty clearly a satire site, where as Mediamass is able to touch the real-factor so closely, you might, for a second, believe it.

The truth? It’s all fake. And last year they started a new feature called ‘people’:

The ‘People’ section is a humorous parody of Gossip magazines, all stories are obviously not true.

Well I thought it was obvious, but some people freaked out when they found the Jorja Fox People Section, and read headlines like “Did she just Get Engaged?” and “Shocker: Actress Nude Photos Leaked Online

One thing I find totally awesome about that site is how they make their fake covers. They have two images, one of Jorja and one of the ‘cover’, and they just use CSS to overlay them. I’m a little nerdy, but I love it.

So anyway, they’re all fake, don’t panic. Read them and have a chuckle.

  1. Thank you for this! I have had to send out some corrections to people I see posting stuff on tumblr. But every so often I do wander over to the site for a good giggle. 🙂

  2. ‘M WATCHING CSI SEASON 10 AND SEEING HOW Sara Sidle THIS MORE BEAUTIFUL WITH MORE COLORED CLOTHING. LOVED YOUR VISUAL TYPE IS SHOWING THAT SARA IS HAPPY
    Will we see SARA HAPPY NEW??

  3. I remember seeing these bogus stories a while back. Also one about Jorja releasing “another” music album. Pretty silly. I don’t think spreading rumors of a celebrity’s death is funny though. I would think these people would have better things to do. Like work for the National Enquirer.

  4. I wonder if Jorja have ever read this stuff about her, and what she would have to say about it..
    this could be kinda funny but I dislike when I see fake death news, someone shared this the other day on facebook and until I realized it wasn`t true I was pretty sad about her death news, it was such a relief to know she`s alive!
