A great many celebrity backstories are fabricated, you need only to look at the X Factor to know that, eg Leona Lewis being a secretary, when really she was an already signed artist who had been working with Ludacris and went to the Brit School! Adele and Katherine Jenkins also.

I think that what tends to happen is the record company has a concept for a new " product", and have to cast an actor to play the role given to them. Britain's Got Talent, has done this twice with rags to riches stories, Paul Potts and Susan Boyle, both actors who were scouted to play storylines written for them just like in WWE wrestling!
