William & Kate's Royal Wedding
So True So False, STSF

There's just six weeks to go before Prince William and Kate Middleton swap vows in the most important (or at least anticipated) wedding of our lifetime.

Which means the press is working overtime to speculate on the final touches—or, given the secrecy with which the couple is conducting their royal business, any touches—of the ceremony. Enter James Blunt, who's decided to help the media out by starting his own rumor, announcing he will perform for Wills and his bride as they stroll down the aisle April 29.

"I'm actually playing," he confided to Italian news channel Sky TG24. "I'm not singing, I'm playing the church organ there."

It would be an, um, interesting choice, but could it be true? Hang on to your fascinators, this rumor is…

So false! But nice try, James.

Blunt made the supposed announcement while promoting his new album, Some Kind of Wonderful, and it apparently worked a treat—various European outlets, salivating at the prospect of some actual royal wedding news, repeated his comments as fact. As did Entertainment Weekly.

The only problem? He was kidding.

A rep for Blunt told E! News that the singer-songwriter was simply joking, that it was "just his humor" and that James will actually be touring in the United States at the time of the wedding.

And it's safe to say he definitely won't be getting an invitation now.
