News is buzzing. According to this report from CNN iReport, Gotye is dead at the age of 32 (link).

Don't know whether it's a hoax or not but do bear in mind that "@cnnireport is "citizen journalism", public can post stuff and often not verified by @cnnbrk" - quoted from twitter.

*edit: Gotye is NOT dead (: and the report from CNN iReport has also been removed :)
