Reports Over Singer Jon Bon Jovi Being Dead Are Completely Untrue
You might have been searching the internet lately and saw several reports that the famous rocker Bon Jovi is dead. If you have, you can completely dismiss the reports, because they are not true. How the report got on the internet to begin with is completely unknown. In most cases such stories will be created to do nothing more then drive traffic to certain blogs. Creating fake stories is common, but anyone who knowingly does this is asking for trouble.
The reports were confirmed to be true when representatives for the singer told reporters that the rocker is alive and well. In fact he will be performing at a charity event soon. Several jokes have been made regarding the story, using lines from some of the singer’s famous songs such as “Dead or Alive” and “Living on a Prayer”.
I do not believe this was something that was done by an accident. In many cases such stories are leaked intentionally. Sometimes it can be by those who work in the industry themselves, other times it can be from people who know if they are the first person to get such a story on their website they will be able to receive a crush of traffic. The website to publish such content first will get ranked first, and people will link back to the story.
These tactics may work for a while, but people who do this can face possible lawsuits or even jail time. The celebrity who is having false things made up about them, such as them being dead, can decide they want to sue if they were to find out who was behind it.
Jon Bon Jovi came out with a picture that he posted on his social networking profiles confirming that he is still alive. In the picture the singer is holding a sign, looking alive and well. The sign says “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey”. I think it is a nice gesture, especially seeing how serious such a false story is. In a lot of cases the person who has such a false story made up about them might not take so kindly to it and will aggressively pursue the person who came out with it.
Not Bon Jovi, though. In fact he has gotten a good laugh out of the whole thing and is not really thinking about the incident further.
