Make Me Famous borrows a van and pisses off its owners
"Now, Make Me Famous had a few issues with our van and had to replace a few parts, all well and fine and they deducted those costs from the payment, even though parts they said they fixed and had receipts for werent fixed, like the out headlight, and the van came back with more damage, an empty tank of gas (the contract said they had to return it full), 3 lights missing from the trailer, a hubcap missing from the van, the exhaust brackets broken leaving the exhaust laying on the axel, a wire box hanging loose under the van, and what looks like fucking chocolate smeared all over the windows inside the van. The van was returned to us 12 days late, and the bands manager didn't even know it wasnt returned (like wtf right?) and after the date it was supposed to be used it was still being driven around and GOT A SPEEDING TICKET THAT THEY WONT PAY FOR. What the actual fuck? So its been two months of getting the run around from them and I'm fucking tired of it, so flame is happening, they will probably all untag themselves and still not resolve the situation. People take advantage of bands all the time like this, I tried to handle it professionally for the longest time, but when someone fucks with you too much its time to put them on blast. Let it be known."
Of course, just five hours later, Make Me Famous issued the following: "Spreading LIES will NEVER get you anywhere, kids."
Why are we posting about this? Because that's what we do. And it's Sunday. Nothing happens on Sunday in the music world. Most importantly, this story involved smeared chocolate!
UPDATE 9/17/2012: Now is the time for the inevitable update. Since we posted our original item here on the matter, Sirena has backed off their tone a bit and even offered an apology of sorts to Make Me Famous:
In the interim, we also received an explanation from Make Me Famous' management team. Said explanation included background emails and images of receipts, etc. We won't bother reprinting everything since you'll not doubt get the idea:
We thought it would be ridiculous for us to insist that they CREDIT us for the repair so we said we could just make it even. Check out the receipts (it contains the van VIN number). Check out the email correspondence below as well. We did in fact communicate this with Serina as shown below.
As for the gas not being filled when we returned it. He is correct on that. This was simple human error.
We take full responsibility for the chocolate smear. Not sure how that actually even got there.
Well, folks, looks like everything has been taken care of. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted ;-)

Usually I would say call a Wambulance and stop being a little girl, but I rented my tour van out to a band and they ABSOLUTELY WRECKED IT. Smoked in it, spilled food in it, and just general douchebaggery plus they never payed the other half so yeah I know that feel bro.
"most importantly, the story involved smeared chocolate" - it was probably poop
Gay band lets Gayer band borrow van. Gayer band destroys Gays van now Gay band is mad and posts on lambgoat to put Gayer band on blast. Moral of the story no one is stoked.
not surprised. Dusty is a piece of shit. When he was in Rose funeral he jacked my drummers cymbals. Little did he know we were good friends with the band they were touring with at the time and heard about the whole thing. Months later we say him play with Serpents and he had my drummers cymbals on his set. I thought my drummer was going to kill him.
Make Me Famous are gays. Literally. I was on tour with them and they would pick guys from the crowd and have them come back stage. They would have all these dudes dress up like "One Direction" and proceed to give them favors and put 5(Five) gum in their jerks. They would take the gum out and chew on it because they liked the taste of colon. WTF amirite?
MMF is one of the hardest working band out there. Stop giving them a bad name
MMF is such a shitty band. fck them motherfckers in their fcking ass. They were suspose to be the next Asking Alexandria, but they blow too. Good job Sumerian having two shitty bands. Shit c*nt fck ball sack
Dont give a fck about Sirena but I HATE to see big gaygy bands give smaller bands a shitty time, even when I dont give a fck about smaller band

Ash has enough sense to make the word band plural. I suspect that post is from an employee of 5 gum.
Probably some truth to Sirena's point of view on the situation but what did they honestly expect? Sounds like Sirena is actually pissed at the reality of their situation. A shit band not doing a damn thing for themselves.
There's always shit involved with whatever band Dusty joins. He's such a fcking gay.
One time Dusty gave me a favor and we agreed I would return the favor. Little did he know I had my finger in my butt when I agreed, which is the same as crossing my fingers.
The only cool member of MMF is Jimmy, their guitarist. And let's face it, Memphis May Fire is THE original MMF. Not Make Me Famous.
theironsheik posted 12 hours ago Who fcking cares about either band? ^this says it all. and if their such a "big" band why the fck dont they have their own van. fggts.
LAMBGOAT fckING RULES I CAN COME ON HERE AND READ THESE fckING COMMENTS AND LAUGH ALL DAY, SERIOUSLY. SOMEONE WILL PROB MAKE FUN OF THIS ONE AND IT WILL MAKE MY DAY.
Well on that note, I'm eating Taco Bell for dinner.
The Paramedic are trying to be the next aa!, and failing. Plus they're shady as fck.
it should not be that hard as an adult to respect another bands van. REGARDLESS of whether the band sucks or not, it's fcking low. and MAKE ME FAMOUS ALSO STEALS THINGS FROM OTHER BANDS, LAST TIME THEY WERE IN PENSACOLA SHIT WENT MISSING. WE'VE GOT PEOPLE HERE IN PENSACOLA WAITING FOR THE NEXT TIME THEY COME AROUND.
fck make me famous and all the gays in the band! GO BACK TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY!
WOW ... fck all you idiots, go back to your moms bastufft and down a bunch of monsters energy drinks and jerk yourself off until your hands fall off so I dont have to read your retarded responses ever again. thanks
