Amber Tamblyn punks Tyrese Gibson

All hell broke loose when model Tyrese Gibson accidentally emailed Amber Tamblyn asking her to collaborate on some songs when he in fact meant to email Amber Rose. In case you don’t know the difference, Tamblyn is an actress and David Cross’s fiancé and Rose is a model and Wiz Khalifa’s fiancé. One was in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the other was in that weird commercial for whipped cream vodka. Anyway, Tamblyn wasn’t one to let an opportunity pass her by, and gamely submitted some demos to Gibson. Sample lyric: I’m doing splits on your unibrow. And it only gets better. Listen below, and follow the email exchange here.

Tran tweeted that she doesn’t have a Facebook account. Gasp! Will we ever find out who’s behind this devious Facebooking? Will we ever care? The answer to one of these questions is Nope.
