slideshow: 10 bogus celebrity quotes from Tumblr

  • "Be yourself because everyone else is taken." - Selena Gomez.

    Who actually said this? Irish writer Oscar Wilde.
  • "Everybody dies but not everybody lives." - attributed to Drake.

    Drizzy, the king of Tumblr quotes, must have been watching Braveheart. You know, the part where William Wallace says: "Every man dies, not every man really lives."
  • "If you don't have any shadows, you're not in the light." - attributed to Lady Gaga.

    Lady Gaga gets the credit on Tumblr, but all Gaga ever said was that someone once told her the phrase.

  • "Life without you is like a broken pencil. There is no point." - attributed to Tyga.

    Tyga wasn't the first person in history to utter this phrase – watch this clip of the 1984 British comedy "Blackadder" for proof.
  • "If you ever want something badly, let it go. If it comes back to you, then it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never yours to begin with." - attributed to Blake Lively.

    Nice try Tumblr, but this sounds awfully close to what Demi Moore said in the 1993 movie Indecent Proposal.
  • "If someone wants to be a part of your life, they'll be there. So don't bother saving a spot for someone who won't make an effort to stay." - attributed to Michael Cera.

    This romantic quote was posted by a fake Michael Cera account on Twitter.

  • "You can't live a positive life with a negative mind." - attributed to Miley Cyrus

    How do you make a generic "inspirational" quote stand out? You attach a celeb's name to it. Miley Cyrus, you're the winner this time.
  • "Don't ever call a girl fat. Even if you're joking." - attributed to Demi Lovato

    There's a chance that Demi once said this, but the fact that the quote mainly lives on Tumblr and Twitter doesn't help its chances.
  • "If someone breaks your heart, just punch them in the face. Seriously, just punch them in the face and go get some ice cream." - Wiz Khalifa.

    This quote was tweeted by a fake Wiz Khalifa account that promotes "diary teen quotes."

  • "People say that nothing is perfect. Well, then this is my nothing." - attributed to Justin Bieber.

    This quote has been attributed to both Bieber and Miley Cyrus, which probably means neither celeb said it.
