No, he didn't. The headline was a total lie, but it did grab your attention, did it not? That is the purpose of headlines.
To the surprise of none, Jake has shown up in New York after his lollipop-laden departure from LAX earlier this week. But to the surprise of many, it appears Jake was not in town to visit with his various family members and friends who sometimes live there, but rather to jump-start his singing career. Yes, heading down the well-traveled path carved by Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Eddie Murphy before him, Jake is jumping the acting boat so that he may swim to the shores of a career of pop music. This news should come as a surprise only to those of you who believe what you read on Jake Watch.
The real scoop?
Jake read the spoken-word portion of the song "Between My Legs" (scandalous!) at a Rufus Wainwright concert last night, surprising the rightfully delighted crowd. Roughly 24 hours later, I stole the above picture from poster "agnusday" on a Rufus Wainwright message board and then made up a fake headline. Thank you, agnus. Please don't sue.

Major props to get real, who essentially did this post for me. :)
