Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek are Moving to Memphis! Book it!

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2007 at 4:00 AM

This seems like something straight out of The Onion, but it must be true, because a website called PR-Inside (offering “free public relations and news”) is reporting that Memphis rappers and Oscar-winners Three 6 Mafia have written “love letters” to film stars Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, urging them to move to Memphis.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

According to PR-Inside, “DJ Paul and Juicy J explain they've even started learning Spanish in an effort to impress pregnant Mexican Hayek and Spaniard Cruz.

In a letter sent to King magazine, the love-struck rap stars write, "We've seen what kind of guys you've been dealing with — Tom Cruise, Edward Norton. ... They’re cool and all, but those guys are rich. We’re not, but we're rich in personality.”

Bringing the two movie stars to Memphis would even improve race relations here: “What we really need to do is have kids. We gotta do that, man. End racism. Mix it up a little bit.”

This is totally going to happen, people! It's ON THE INTERNET!
