Lala Hoax Revealed, 2Good2BTru

This picture on first glance does make a P.I.'s heart skip a beat, but in a rare sober moment with closer scrutiny it becomes clear.

Well the picture ain't real, it has messy digital paw prints all over it. I at first thought it was rather bold of the perp to use the main iTunes graphic, but then it occurred to me. The are no other known pictures of Lala. He had know choice but to risk it, in plain sight. His skills are great. To clean up the colorized version of Lala so cleanly, especially the eyes, he deserves lots of kudos. But the give away was in the poor match of resolution between the grafted photos.

It would just be cheap journalism to let you see the whole picture.
So I won't make the link active.

I think you're too quick to judge.

1) how would he have gotten the whole head shot, as only part of it is available in the itunes icon? Surely he isn't THAT good of a painter.

2) After seeing your post, I took a look myself... it does not appear to be a mismatch in resolution, what you are seeing are standard JPEG compression distortions, these distortions are all over the image. JPEG works great in continuous tone areas, but can get choppy where there are a lot of changes in colour, or large changes in tone.

If it is a fake, it is unbelieveably well done. I can't see how it could have possibly been accomplished using the low resolution source image.

As far as I'm concerned the jury is still out on this one.

I agree with the Canadian Avenger. The discontinuous regions that you are pointing out are merely as a result of Jpeg compression. The quickest check for this is that they are occurring in blocks of 8x8 pixels which is a classic hallmark of Jpeg compression. The tiling is even occurring exactly where you would expect it, at pixel numbers that are divisible by eight. Check it out at

I am no expert so I could be wrong. I am gonna have to go with sitting on the fence.

well Sir Poo-a-lot at the forums got me thinking. He said that he though Patty O'Furniturre saved teh photo from Lala's myspace profile before she deleted it.

So I went back and looked, indeed it was calimed to be a saved image. Guess we'll need for either Lala or Dr. Tiki to chime in on the images authenticity.

it's a nice photo regardless.

maybe the fact that she's clothed suggests that it is real :)

If this is a fake then the artist who created it found a near perfect match for the colourised head shot. The hair and bone structure lines up perfectly and I don't think you can say for sure on just a little pixelation. The 'fake' has a resolution of 180dpi and the TikiBar TV iTunes image ( has a resolution of 72dpi. Despite this, the image quality looks the same. Some possible artifacts but nothing that screams fake.

Either way, I think the photo was taken at the Stone Temple Nightclub in Vancouver. Decor is similar and the sign behind 'Lala' is enough to give it away.
