Posers and How to Pose for Them

By Erika, age 14, Florida

Ok, we have all seen people on Myspace posing as our favorite celebrities and wanted to add them thinking they were the real thing. Trust me when I tell you 9 times out of 10 they're posers. Any one of us can be fooled by them, crushing our hopes of maybe, possibly achieving celebrity status, with them by our side. The thing is about posers is they dedicate so much time to posing that they eventually start playing the role, and mixing their real life with their fake life.

There are many ways we can prove a poser is a poser, but sometimes we must become a poser to prove it. For example:

♥ If you have never met a certain celebrity, and they do "meet and greets", ask them if they remember you. And if they say yes, they're a poser, because you have never met them.

♥ You can look for a detailed biography of the person and question them. See what the results are. If they are real they will not answer word-for-word from the biography, but get the answers right, just in their own words, and maybe give a short analogy.

♥ Another way is to pressure them into admitting themselves after you get close enough with them. That will shock them and they will not know what to do, and the truth will be revealed.

I hope you take what I have said to heart and be smart when dealing with possible posers, because you can get hurt by them, and I'm sure the real celebs must not enjoy being imitated in such ways.

Also, if you find a poser on MySpace, please report them to either Tom or

Thank you.
