Daily Mirror Blind Item

Who's the celeb so stingy she wouldn't put her hand in her pocket to pay for a Britney ticket... but had the cheek to get her assistant to try every trick in the book to get them for free so she could take her friends?

sounds like something Kathy Griffin would do....just sayin'

"Hand in the pocket" sounds like an Alanis Morrissette clue, but I frankly doubt she'd care to see Crapney and she's so off the radar right now.

lily allen?

nunaurbiz said...

I was thinking Miley Cyrus.

MontanaMarriott said...

This could be any female celebrity, since they all love getting things for free.

Liz said...

Me.

Miranda said...

I'm guessing Posh, just because it's a Daily Mirror blind. I can see her being tight with a dollar yet oh-so-curious to see Ms. Brit-Brit.

Tiffany said...

"friends"...Jen A. Courtney Cox?

Kara said...

I wouldn't want to pay for Brittney tickets either. Lol.

Angela said...

It's the Daily Mirror and it deals with mostly British celebrities, as they are the ones the readers know.

I'd bet it's Lilly Allen. I can picture her having friends actually interested in Britney.

Tiffany said...

Angela - sorry didn't think. Thanks for pointing that out....I'm getting it

Mistik said...

Jordan.

Lisa said...

Lohan? Oh, I forgot, she doesn't have any friends since she's broke!

Myrlin said...

Maybe Madonna, trying to get tickets for Lourdes and her friends? She's of an age where they might be into Britney, right? Then again, I can't see Madonna's assistant having to try "every trick in the book" to get them--saying "Hi, I'm Madonna's assistant" would probably do it.

Sis said...

I am also thinking Posh just because of her usual "hands in pocket" pose.

McDooks said...

In this case, is that really being cheap or just sensible? I question the judgement of forking over $$ to see that farce.

ATM said...

Could be Rachel Weisz. Laineygossip.com outted her as a total cheapskate a while ago, and she's british...

Majik said...

I like the Lily Allen guess.

Ernestine said...

Rachel Weisz might be cheap (and pretty. So, so, SO pretty), but I wouldn't peg her as a Britney fan.

I don't think it's Lily. I just read an interview where she told some story about buying a Jamaican beach while wasted -- not exactly a frugal person's kinda purchase. Plus, I can see Britney and Lily actually corresponding; I'll bet that Brit Brit is a fan and maybe gave Lily some free tickets?

I think it's Miley. No one would want to give her anything for free.

Ms.Leigh said...

before i can even guess, we'd need to know whose actually been to her concert. without that, could be anyone.

i love the alanis idea tho. the hand in the pocket reference, plus she's the indy chick- maybe she'd have an issue with admitting she likes pop music? like it takes from her indy-cred??

chucky-baby said...

Ms.Leigh, Alanis started out as a canadian popstar in the eighties. Other than that I have no idea

Ernestine said...

Oh my God. I absolutely refuse to believe that the woman who sang Jagged Little Pill is conflicted about spending money for a Britney concert!!!!

NOOOO! Just slaughter the sixteen year-old me, please!!!

Sporky said...

Whoever it is, they are a shit-for-brains. I wouldn't go to the concert if they paid me.

Angela said...

So, the story must be that a PR for Britney in the UK got asked some tickets by a celebrity again and again, refused and spoke to some tabloid about it.

I've crossed ways a few times with minor celebrities in my country and you must take into account that these people take many things as granted. They can spend much on a new house but they expect things such as concert tickets to be given to them. I wouldn't call them stingy. Having perks is actually important for them because it shows their status. Of course, in the eyes of the PR, it's being stingy. But the celeb knows little about making ends meet. It's just getting her tickets as she's used to.
