Poor dim-witted Tyrese. He’s well-known for his less-than-intelligent tweets and will never be able to live down his ridiculous painting depicting the baptism of Tupac by Malcolm X. The latest in Tyrese’s online faux-pas came at the hands of actress Amber Tamblyn (House, The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants), who found herself cc’d on the same e-mail thread as the R&B singer. Tyrese contacted Tamblyn (whose middle name is Rose, thus the confusion), assuming she was Amber Rose, saying that he’d like to work with her on a new album. That’s when the jokes began.

Still pretending to be Amber Rose, Tamblyn sent Tyrese what she called “Awareness Raps,” that are so bad they almost make me feel badly for the real Amber Rose, who frankly does not sound that much better than these joke demos.

Tyrese’s initial responses were supportive, with him telling the fake Amber “we can make it real …. I’m sitting on a lot of magic … Let me know when ur in LA .. We can play until we customize AR.” But by the time she started bringing in the more-ridiculous demos he had to admit “That song was not it … Not even remotely …. Just keepin it real.” The trolling continued with Tamblyn pretending to be offended and Tyrese finally beginning to think that maybe this wasn’t the real Amber Rose after all.

Now Tyrese is mad that Tamblyn went public with the exchange, for obvious reasons. Poor guy!

    I don’t know which is funnier- the fact that she pranked him, or the fact that he was too dumb to pick up on it, LMAO!!!

  • Mr. Man

    She was wrong for that. However this had ‘stanky mess’ potential though, good thing he kept it professional…hew!!

  • HoneyDew

    I saw this on another website last night, she actually signed her name Amber Rose Tamblyn on the last two e-mails and Tyrese still did not get it!! This was sooo funny!!!

  • LaDreaming86

    Yes, I saw this story on another website as well…

    I thought this was funny. If he knows her personally, why wasn’t he able to pick up on the different sound of the voice in the demos? Do they sound that much alike?

  • Andy

    Thats messed up. Anyone could have made that mistake. I know I’ve never heard of Amber Rose Tamblyn the actress. Why did she have to take it that far?

    I guess I dont tune into pop culture enough to be familiar with this running gag on Tyrese’s supposed idiocy; however, I have met him in person at a function for a non-profit organization dedicated to helping students overcome their personal challenges and become successful. He gave a very heartfelt speech off the top (unwritten) and shared his personal experiences growing up and having to overcome gang violence, poverty, etc. Tyrese is also a board member of this organization (its called Communities in Schools) and dedicates not just money, but personal time to this organization, as well as many others. I was truly inspired by his story and I can appreciate the humanity in him, in spite of this microscope that we put celebrities under.
    Purposely making someone look foolish just because we find it amusing then putting it out there to the public, I dont get it, and maybe thats just not my sense of humor. I personally think Amber needs to grow up.

  • The Taker

    Damn, that was some funny sh*t. That second one…. I was WEAK. *Le sigh* Po’ lil’ tink tink.

  • Carra

    LOVED IT!!! Don’t feel sorry for the guy at all!!!

  • HoneysuckleBee
