Today's Blind Items

Bet you think I forgot. I didn't actually forget. I just thought I had already hit the post button. Oh well, sorry about that, but it will give you something to digest tonight or in the morning. Speaking of digesting, I had a tough time when I heard about this one. This openly gay singer has spent some time overseas. When I say overseas, I mean not in his home country wherever that may be. Anyway, it turns out that our singer got into some trouble recently. Not the kind of trouble you would expect, but more of the, "crap this is going to cost me big." Our singer has always had a bit of a violent streak when it comes to his sex life. He knows this and only participates with people who are aware of it and can handle it. Never been a problem until now. Seems that while overseas he took a liking to someone who was ill prepared for the experience and ended up in the hospital for several days. The person he took a liking too was barely legal. Hell, might not have even been legal. It took a massive monetary bribe to make his parents go away, and not press charges. It took another massive bribe to keep the one of the local papers from printing the story. Look for our singer to be playing a birthday party really really soon.

I second sir elton john.

Doesn't Boy George spend most of his time in NYC? I say him.

Katja said...

clay akin?

nunaurbiz said...

I say NOT Sir Elton. If it were Elton, he would have said something about Elton's husband, David, I'm sure.

All I could think of was Gary Glitter, but then that wouldn't be Blind, would it????

Green Wave Gal said...

George Michael?

palealebrew10 said...

you've got a good point, nunaurbiz. Now that Boy George guess is intriguing me..

Khemenu said...

I vote Rufus Wainwright

Ema said...

i say george michael

jax said...

hello? Boy George was arrested and went to trial for kidnapping and chaining up some talent.

100% without a doubt him.

Sally said...

Boy George

Quintessential Southerner said...

if boy george own publishing and songwriting royalties for his hits, he has the dough.

PK said...

Does Boy George have the enough $$$ to give someone "massive monetary bribes"? Is Elton John physically capable of hurting anything large than a butterfly?

It has to be Ben Affleck

anomélie said...

"Never been a problem until now."

Wouldn't going to trial and performing community service be kind of a problem for Boy George?

If you want to have some fun, click on the pinknews link about Boy George, and then click on the BangLads.com advertising link.

Those are some fine underwear models. I think I like the Rufskin Denim underwear guys the best :)

I could see Lance Bass doing a birthday party, but he seems too innocent.

Katja said...

wow, it never quits amazing that seemingly normal cross dressing makeup wearing guys are freaky.

Andy said...

Rob Halford?

(those who get the joke are gonna LOL big time)

amster said...

Ricky Martin? Oh wait he's not openly gay is he? Sir Elton is married. Besides Ricky, I thought of George Michael.I know Randy Travis has been rumored gay don't think he is openly gay though. I am sticking with George Michael.

Amy said...

Didn't George Michael's boyfriend take him to Africa recently?

BlahFrickinBlah said...

Lance Bass hasn't been overseas lately cause he's been on DWTS for awhile now. I couldn't see him doing something like this. Can't see Elton John doing this shit either.

I'm all for the Boy George guess. As for money, if you are motivated by keeping your ass out of jail.....I'm sure you will find a way to get the money. Also, it doesn't state where they were overseas. It could have been a country where it doesn't take much cash (compared to here or England) to be wealthy.

newsgrrl said...

I like the Boy George guess.

Geebz said...

slappywhyte said...

Justin Timberlake

Laurie said...

Boy George Michael, from Arrested Development

KellyLynn said...

I thought the Boy George guess was the best one.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Andy, I was going to suggest Halford too...*L*

Molly said...

since when is justin timberlake "openly gay"?

kari B-rum said...

I don't think it's obvious. I say it's Johnny Mathis

ms_wonderland said...

Rusell Brand isn't gay or a singer, and he's not know for rough trade.

Odd that nearly all the openly gay male singers are Brits. Well, not odd at all really, with the US being so in denial. Here's another to consider - Will Young.

kari B-rum said...

As I read it again it may be a US singer who spends a lot of time overseas. Like on tour is what I get. I was thinking Michael Jackson but he's not out. Who's having a birthday party soon?

distingué traces said...

Yeesh. I'm going to say George Michael because I want it to be somebody I already hate.

distingué traces said...

ms wonderland ... IT IS NOT WILL YOUNG, BECAUSE WILL YOUNG IS A NICE WHOLESOME MAN WHO WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING AWFUL.

Geez.

Here's another point in support of George Michael: The BI says that this is "not the kind of trouble you would expect", meaning that you would expect him to be in trouble, just not THIS kind of trouble. Of course, George Michael's drug and cruising arrests mean you'd expect him to be in trouble, but he's never been caught at anything like this before.

On the other hand, this is EXACTLY "the kind of trouble you would expect" from Boy George, as he's been arrested for going too far with the bondage with a hustler before. So, ironically, I think that argues AGAINST him as the answer for this BI.

not on my dollar said...

I also think it's George Michael.

distingué traces said...

Yes. Here's the story about George Michael going to Africa this fall:

http://www.nowmagazine.co.uk/celebrity-news/275537/george-michael-jets-off-to-africa/1/

It's him. What an asshole.

Bad Fish said...

Ooh George Michaels fits even better than Elton does.

RagDoll said...

I'm torn between English Georges: Boy or Michael? I'm going to say Boy. Michael looks like he'd just keel over and fall asleep on your foot.

telesma said...

Boy George is still in the top 100 wealthiest in England list, AFAIK. He's got fingers in a lot of pies other than his music and songwriting royalties. So he's probably more than able to come up with payment.

I hate to think that it's him, but I think the history of violence is there, so it wouldn't surprise me if it did turn out to be him. :-(

telesma said...

I'd much, much rather believe it's George Michael because I never liked him.

Jamie's Girl said...

This guy beat the shit out of someone during happy sex? Damn. I can't imagine if the guy was a sadist. Why didn't he tell people he's a Sadist? This guy is a piece of shit. It better not be Boy George, although he is a big man. George Michael...well, we all know what he likes and it's glory holes.

Michelle said...

Not Elton John, BOY GEORGE is into the rough stuff.
