Site makes $1 billion dollar error with its Madonna post

Truth rating: 0

Like a fish to a rotting worm, the hacks at Hollyscoop were caught and reeled in by another phony story.

According to the poorly reported site, Madonna has “been offered $1 billion dollars to take up a Las Vegas residency,” like such other stars as Celine Dion and Elton John.

Naturally, journalism’s other joker, Perez Hilton, took the bait as well.

“The billion dollar deal would be for five years,” claims Hollyscoop, which adds, “We say do it, Madge! The thought of knowing she’d be in Vegas for five years straight would be music to our ears.”

Perhaps, Hollyscoop should use their ears to hear this…

A rep for Madonna tells Gossip Cop their billion dollar claim is “not true.”

And like fish, again Hollyscoop just got schooled.
