These pop stars like Little Mix and Fifth Harmony have totally beat Joanne the Scammer at her own game

Sometimes you just need to indulge the dark side, we’re not gonna lie, or maybe we are…


We all have a little crush on Joanne the Scammer. We wish we could pull off scams as flawlessly and as fabulously as she can.

Here’s a true mantra to live by.

And it seems like we’re not the only ones who adore a good scam. These pop stars have been taking Joanne’s advice very literally and we couldn’t be more proud. Watch and learn.

1. The deceit

The once innocent Little Mix have come a looooong way since their ‘X Factor’ days and now they are truly mistresses of deceit and lies. They were totally up for making Capital FM presenter Roman Kemp squirm with this sly prank where Leigh-Anne stormed out mid-interview.

Bit inappropriate wasn’t it?

Only if you think fabulousness is inappropriate, darling. MWAHAHAHA!


2. The heist

One of Joanne’s most fabulous recent scams involved the gorgeous Amber Rose and her scammin’ some poor soul out of 200k worth of jewels. Darling, we love your work!

But did you know that Britters did it first? Back in 2004 Britney managed to get away with stealing diamonds by turning them into a body suit. Right in front of the world’s noses. Iconic.


When asked recently on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ what happened to the diamonds, she replied innocently that she doesn’t remember how they got the diamonds off her body. Maybe because they never did…


3. On politics

Fifth Harmony‘s Lauren was a bit more direct with her critique.

Let’s not beat around the bush shall we?

4. On getting even

Oh Taylor Swift you really do know how to deal the shade. Despite all the metaphorical rocks Calvin and co. have thrown at Tay Tay over the last couple of months, she has managed remained pretty quiet and dignified. But at her only gig of 2016 on Sunday she made a subtle dig at all her haters by singing ‘This Is What You Came For’.

“I’ve never played this song live before. But if you know it, maybe you could sing along, and then I could get to know what that feels like to hear it sung back to me.”

Revenge is a dish best served ice cold. Sips iced tea…
