Axl Rose would like you to know, he’s alive and well and getting a good laugh at some recent headline-grabbing news pertaining to him reportedly being dead.
Yesterday (Dec. 4), a fake MSNBC report, designed to look like a real MSNBC report, made the rounds with the headline, “Sources: Guns N’ Roses Frontman Axl Rose Found Dead in West Hollywood Home at Age 52.”
The story read, “Unconfirmed reports say Rose was found dead Tuesday late afternoon in his West Hollywood home after police were called around 3:30 pm for a welfare check.”
But, the Guns N’ Roses frontman was doing just fine so he quickly let his many fans know, even having a little fun with his 862,000 Twitter followers, tweeting, “if I’m dead do I still have to pay taxes?”
It’s a good question for all the other supposedly dead celebrities.
If I'm dead do I still have to pay taxes?—
