The Lyrics

With all the celebrities telling lies and being found out these days, I figured I'd make up a story about a character, "Joe Schmo". He's a totally famous rock star and everyone likes him, until this big scandal happens that's a mixture of Lindsay Lohan, Milli Vanilli, and Tiger Woods. It's completely made up, but this exact same thing could happen.
OMG he's just a fake!
OMG he's just a fake!
Joe Schmo is a total fake!
It turned out, it turned out, it turned out

The world's most amazing guy, that's what he seemed to be
He came up with this scam and fooled the industry
He sold 2 billion albums worldwide
Face on Mount Rushmore, but something to hide

He got married and had 22 kids on a reality show
Ended up with more than enough fame to, over 9000 times, circle the globe
His fame was so badly abused it made Chris Brown look nice to Rihanna
But when his camping tent was burned down by his wife she admitted all that she did wanna

Chorus:
There are skeletons in the closet
His angry wife set them free (ah ooh)
There are skeletons in the closet
Ended up on TMZ (ah)

Tried to apologize, caught lip-syncing onstage
From Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to right off the page
He turned to drugs and then got arrested
The world's gullibility had been tested

To locate the clues to this, people listened to his music
And it turned out people ignored the obvious clues in the lyrics
He told the world he was faithful but soon his CDs were banned from all the stores (ah)
'Cause he admitted that he'd been with 295 million whores

(Chorus)

OMG, he's just a fake!
OMG, he's just a fake!
Joe Schmo is a total fake!
It turned out, it turned out, it turned out
(Repeat)

There are skeletons in the closet
Ended up on TMZ (ah)
