Update, 7/10: During an appearance on the Spanish TV program El Hormiguero, Cara Delevingne is fake-coerced into playing the drums. At first, she's like, "Oh no, I can't." But then she gets up there, adjusts her Dolce & Gabbana mini-dress, and goes all Chad Smith.

So...if she sings (opens in new tab) too, what's Kendall's instrument? Harmonica? Tambourine? Kazoo? No, wait, got it—the euphonium.

Update, 6/29: If a band has merch but no gigs or songs, is it even a band? Or is it simply a running joke between celebrities that continues to fascinate a nation? That is the question fans are wrestling with after the Instagram record-holding half (opens in new tab) of CaKe posted this photo Sunday.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here, all right? That goes for everybody. *closes mock-up of CaKe-branded travel mugs*

Update, 6/11: Breaking: Hot underground band CaKe didn't *actually* break up.

In an Instagram posted Wednesday, Cara Delevingne licks Kendall Jenner's shoulder while Kendall Jenner, wearing blue Beats, licks Cara Delevingne's forehead. Is it their idea of an album cover? Do they usually record topless? This is still all an elaborate shenanigan, right?

Yeah, probably.

Original post, 4/10: Undercover polymath Cara Delevingne has undertaken another (imaginary?) musical endeavor, prompting the question "Can you be in two bands at one time without it being a massive conflict of interest?" But wait! Does Cara's Dave Grohl-like move suggest that CaKe, her Instagram joke/string duo with Kendall Jenner (opens in new tab), folded even before it took off? [The]

In an interview with Grazia (opens in new tab), Georgia May Jagger says she, Suki Waterhouse, and Cara "Pick a Side" Delevingne huddled around a fire one evening, where Dolly Parton's pink, sparkly essence prompted them to pen a lilting ballad.

"We wrote a country song one night," she says. "My boyfriend [Josh McLellan] produces music, so he helped make us a beat and we wrote the lyrics. It's about girls on the road without men, listening to the radio, that kind of thing. We've done a couple of songs."

1) At this rate, we'll have an album when I'm old enough to become president. And 2) Wasn't Cara trying to launch a solo career (with Pharrell's help) (opens in new tab) too? Eggs, meet 234,098 different baskets.
