We’ve long known Amber Tamblyn to be both an actress as well as the little spoon to comedian David Cross. But this weekend revealed a new side of Tamblyn, one that is not only hilarious, but that also drops sick beats.
It all began one sunny afternoon when male model Tyrese Gibson committed an internet sin. On an e-mail with a non-bcc’d list of celebrity e-mail addresses, he saw the name “Amber Rose,” and assuming it was musician/Wiz Khalifa’s fiance Actual Amber Rose, thought it wise to e-mail her with a request to work together on some tracks. Well, it turns out his e-mail was instead sent to actress Amber Tamblyn, whose middle name is Rose.
But instead of alerting Tyrese to the mix-up, Tamblyn decided to play along and see if in fact they could really make beautiful music together. She went so far as to record 4 DEMO TRACKS for the prank, including the best one… DANCEFLOOR ETIQUETTE:
You guys… she’s not that bad.
The result ends up being a hilariously confusing e-mail exchange between Amber Tamblyn and Tyrese, who remains yours, Repectfully.
First, let Amber tell it in her own words. From her Facebook page:
Tyrese Gibson (of Fast and Furious and Transformers) saw my name cc’d on an email that a mutual friend sent out and thought I was the model ex girlfriend of Kanye West, Amber Rose. (My middle name is Rose and my email adress is registered as Amber Rose.) I’ve never met Tyrese before. He pulled my email addy from that cc list and emailed me wanting to work on an album together. So I recorded 4 demos on my iPhone and sent them to him.
Below are the two email correspondences I had with Tyrese as well as a link to the songs I sent him.
DISCLAIMER: Tyrese is a very sweet guy with good intentions who made a mistake and I, being an actress and engaged to a comedian, could not help myself. Tyrese, please accept my 87% hearfelt apology for stringing you along. I think we could have made beatufiul music together.

Wow…okay. Sorry you feel that way. To each his own I suppose.
These do mean something to me. They are from my heart and I feel like there is an important message in each and every song.
But okay, good luck on your career as well.
OH AND BY THE WAY – For the record, this is really Amber.

Tyrese Gibson to me 12:20 PM (46 minutes ago)
Am I the only one who really wants them to collaborate?? They’d be at least 500 times as good as actual rapper Amber Rose.
