We were on the red carpet at Friday’s Jingle Ball concert at Madison Square Garden, where Miley Cyrus,Robin Thicke, Macklemore, Enrique Iglesias and many other stars took the stage. So many big stars in one room
means many opportunities for misinformation, so we decided to help the stars out — we had them clear up the craziest rumor they’ve heard about themselves. Here’s what they had to say.

Ryan Seacrest
Metro: What is the funniest story you have ever read about yourself?
Seacrest: That I can sing!
Metro: You can’t sing?
RS: I cannot sing. Just rap.

Snooki
Metro: What is the funniest story you have ever read about yourself?
Snooki: That I dated Drake.
J Woww: How was it?
Snooki: It was great!

Kellan Lutz
Metro: What is the funniest story you have ever read about yourself?
Lutz: I don’t know how to read, so I don’t know how to answer that question. No, I’m joking.

Dr. Oz
Metro: What is the funniest story you have ever read about yourself?
Dr. Oz: There was an article that said I was having an affair with Oprah.
Metro: Of all people! What did you think?
Oz: It was a crazy idea.

Austin Mahone
Metro: What is the funniest story you have ever read about yourself?
Mahone: Some person wrote about me saying that my favorite sport is surfing but I’ve never surfed in my life, so I don’t know where they got that.
