Whatever Happened To Rosie's Baby?

Well, that's the last time I ever get parenting news from Pitchfork.

Looks like the cable tv got shut off again at Sufjan's house, because the geek-rocker and his posse have taken to entertaining themselves by playing media hoaxes on the music website.

"Rocker?!" Sufjan now exclaims, "I barely even touched her. And no, there's no baby, and I'm not going to become a father. At least that I know of" Actually, what he said, was:

"First of all, [self-congratulatory comment about how nice his fans are deleted]

Secondly, the baby is a hoax. I had nothing to do with the baby hoax. I was as shocked as everyone else about the baby. Matthew's story was so convincing I almost believed it myself.

"Thirdly, something you need to know about Rosie is that she's really weird and she's really funny. So it's no surprise that she could pull this off, this imaginary baby. But the fact is, Rosie is not carrying my baby. As far as I know, we spent quality time in the studio, not in bed. If Rosie's pregnant, it's not my baby. Maybe it's Denison's baby. Maybe it's an alien baby. I don't know...

All you Rosie fans who've started crocheting booties go back to playing Katamari now.

Ha! I figured it was safe, since it was 5 days late for April 1.

[you know how slow those pitchfork guys can be getting to their email. -ed.}

that should be the last time you visit pitchfork ever, for any reason.

Rosie Thomas is also a stand up comedian, with some weird persona that she uses on stage. I've heard it sucks, just like her pregnancy joke.

[first AND last, brah. from now on, it's only Rolling Stone for me. I KNOW they're having a baby. -ed.]

I normally roll with the tiny mix tapes crowd. I keep a pitchfork news feed in my rss aggregator just in case any NPR favorites and b-list indie folkers have babies.

I've seen Rosie live twice, she's good enough (although i haven't seen the comedy stuff).

[ouch, and very funny. no harm no foul on the tip, Ryan. And it's good to know someone's keeping tabs on those pitchfork sellouts. -ed.]
