Today's Blind Items & MV Clue

The blind item is kind of hard, but it is a good one so wanted to get it out there. This actress/member of band/reality star recently had an operation to restore a good portion of one of her ears. She and her boyfriend got into an argument. He got her in a headlock and pulled all of her earrings out without removing the backs. With makeup and her long hair she can hide it from a distance but up close it is a mess and parts of her ear are a different color than others.

***
MV has been separated (real separation and not just kicking the guy out for a couple of days) and/or divorced at least once. Tomorrow's final clue will eliminate one of your favorite guesses.

So tomorrow either Shania or Britney will be eliminated. Does this necessarily mean that it's either one or the other? It ain't Britney.

Nosey Parker said...

Britney FTW

MontanaMarriott said...

Oh great, again MV can be Britney, Shania, Madonna, etc

Adventurous Kate said...

It doesn't affect the top four:

Shania.
Britney.
Whitney.
Janet.

.robert said...

Paris?

Ice Angel said...

So much emphasis on the "real" separation thing makes me think this person was separated for a long time. Didn't Shania just go straight for the divorce, as well as Britney?

genesis said...

Zomg lol Shit they've all been divorced, damn you hollywood! Can't anyone stay faithful so we can figure this frikkin' blind!!!

Ice Angel said...

There can't be too many actress/band member/reality stars out there, can there?

Cancan said...

How can it be Janet? Does she have a kid I don't know about?

Anna said...

Janet Jackson is pretty good about being sneaky, i.e. secret marriage. Remember when she blimped up a little while ago? Maybe that was a secret baby bump? Then, she could be back in the running!

Marisa said...

BAH! Torture

Anna said...

BTW, I am guessing Aubrey O'Day for the BI.

Ice Angel said...

Norah Jones has never been married and Michelle Branch has never been separated or divorced.

caralw said...

One of the DeBarge's claimed Janet and her first hubby had a child that was raised by one of her sisters.

She denied it. But yeah, she's all about the secret marriages. Why not a secret kid, too.

Sinead said...

Aubrey O'Day?

Kingrey said...

Anna, that's who came to my mind as well for today's BI

NotSoAnonMom said...

Aubrey O'Day for the blind?

Ice Angel said...

Is Aubrey O'Day and "actress?"

Ice Angel said...

Oy...just looked at her imdb and Aubrey is an actress! Whatever!

Lauren said...

Anna, I like the Aubrey O'day guess. I am trying to think of how many actress/member of a band/reality star girls there are out there.

princessj1987 said...

Not Whitney. Her and Bobby went through fake separations before finally divorcing.

I think it's either Britney or Shania, I am leaning more towards Shania, though.

Kingrey said...

I'd be willing to bet that MV was not born in the 1980s. I always got the impression that it's someone older with plenty of gravitas, as someone mentioned yesterday. At least in her late 30s.

Cancan said...

BI=Sabrina Bryan.

cdanluva said...

Blind item today - Lil Kim

actress - zoolander
singer - lady marmalade
reality star - dancing with the stars

Lauren said...

Maybe too, this girl is a little more hardcore than a teeny bopper, just because of having so many earrings up and down her ear?

Mango said...

I dunno who the BI is about, but I hope her boyfriend got his ass locked up!

shelly_bean said...

oooh Cancan that's a great guess!

I would think Aubrey except this one is supposed to be kind of hard and Aubrey was the first one to pop into everyone's mind.

Nosey Parker said...

MV = Britney
Guy = Larry Rudolph
S = June Pointer

I don't think that Screechy Peach did a commercial. The Pointer Sister did a Burger King ad.

The Henry Rollins article mentions Anita Pointer, but June Pointer died of Breast Cancer. RIP =[

They stopped using June around the time she did Toxic with Cathy Dennis.

princessj1987 said...

I think the blind is Aubrey O'Day. She always wears these big weaves/wigs that cover her ears. My only issue is she dating anyone??? I haven't heard. Did her bf do this recently or in the past?

MontanaMarriott said...

LOL I am about to kidnap and torture you a la KATHY BATES/MISERY Enty if you don't tell us who MV is soon! LOL
ARRRRGH, this is driving me loca

Stephen said...

Question - is Enty giving all of these new clues for MV because he knows that the secret is about to be revealed?

.robert said...

cdanluva, DWTS is reality TV? I thought it was just a competition (I don't watch that stuff).

Cancan said...

If it were Aubrey O'Day she would have put it on Twitter.

The only other women I can think of who meet the three criteria are Jane Wiedlin & Belinda Carlisle. Unless you consider Scary Spice an actress (for Peep Show.) But she is married.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I'm going to guess on the actual blind item today because that clue doesn't help me AT ALL *LOL*.

And the only person I can think of that fits is Aubrey O'Day. And as much of a douchebaguette as she is, nobody deserves abuse like that....

Always Second Guessing said...

I really don't think it can be Britney, as many people have already pointed out, it wouldn't be that shocking. I'm leaning towards Shania.

Gemini850 said...

*girl said...

I'm not sure the MV blind is about to be revealed, I think Enty just sees the passion in which we've responded to it.

That's got to be good for the ego - and the website hits too ;)

Roamer said...

MV - ok how about Nelly Furtado? she's been married, has a child and had some top songs back in 2006- w/ Loose cd.

Ms Cool said...

Have we eliminated J Lo?

Gemini850 said...

princessj1987 said...

What about Nicole Scherzinger for the BI? She's been out of the spotlight for a while. She is dating Lewis Hamilton. She was on the reality show Popstars. She was in Eden's Crush and Pussycat Dolls. She has a few acting credits. Just throwing names out. Aubrey just seemed too easy.

Funny Girl said...

After thinking about it these past few days, I don't think anyone would care if MV was Britney. I don't think people would be wildly shocked if that came out about her. It's always seemd like a possibility.

On the other hand, Shania is looking more and more like MV, in my opinion. However, wasn't Shania in a recent blind where her ex-husband agreed to take the blame for the cheating? Does that change things here?

As for today's blind. I have

Gemini850 said...

@Ms Cool, Some have, Some haven't. The tour thing is the key. It says she has never toured. But some people point out that she did about 60 shows in the U.S. with someone and that technically is touring.

I do remember her being overexposed, especially doing the Bennifer thing.

pomme said...

for me,MV is Britney Spears.
She's young(under 30),made world wide tour,has children,married/divorced...

I've over Janet Jackson because her marriage and her secret child are rumors(no efficient clue)!

Pookie said...

omg! i hope the poor girl didn't stay w/ the guy. holy mary. =O

lutefisk said...

Can we have tomorrow's clue today? Or is that being greedy?

pomme said...

@montana marriot:i'm with you!!!LOL

krista said...

ppl are guessing aubrey oday for the BI not MV.

& why are ppl continuing to guess artists who arent even really that popular? nelly furtado? michelle branch? these people are not important enough to shake the music industry.

RocketQueen said...

My first guess for today's BI was also Aubrey O'Day.

bandy said...

amy grant?

Belle said...

I'm down to Shania and J.Lo for the blind.

I was working in Nashville as an intern when Shania hit big, there was a lot of talk that she was all studio no talent.

And they both fit the blind clues: good looking, kids, a career that was hot and then fizzled, powerful music industry pusher (Mutt Lange, Benny Medina), both divorced or separated.

This could be good.

Majik said...

I was thinking Juliette Lewis, but I don't think she's been on a reality show...

My MV top guess is Whitney Houston--Enty said it would shake the industry to it's core. WH, or Mariah, would do it...even Shania, who was my original guess. Janet's a pretty good one, too..

Has anyone else noticed how much WH's voice has changed? Yeah, she said she smoked a lot of crack--but there are a lot of ex users in the industry and their voices are fine--I would think someone with the vocal range she presents would have stronger cords...

Courtney said...

Enty's generosity with the clues is why I think this is Britney. It would have been shocking three years ago, now it's not and the information is widely disseminated. We all kind of know, so he doesn't have to stick with "everyone needs to die first."

MontanaMarriott said...

Let me guess, tomorrows clue will be "MV is American or MV is not American." Thats the only thing I can think of which is to rule out.

.robert said...

Pookie, they almost always stay with the guy.

Roamer said...

PEOPLE! JLO seriously is not belting out any high notes on her songs! have you heard JENNY FROM THE BLOCK??????? i'm sorry but her voice isn't impressive even on her recordings. She's not MV.

warmislandsun said...

I like the Aubrey ODay guess for today's BI, but I will throw Nicole Scherzinger out there for it as well.

.robert said...

Oh, and I'm on the JLo BW.

desertdweller said...

I'm still not convinced this isn't Shania but after Enty's diss on Britney today I'm beginning to wonder. Also, he wrote this BI way back in 2006 before her meltdown and it would have been SHOCKING for this to come out back then. Since - nothing about her would suprise us so maybe that explains all the clues.

My other problem with the Britney guess is why pay this really talented backup singer (S) to sound like crap? Why not just hire a so-so backup singer?

Nah - I'm still riding Train Shania

desertdweller said...

Sorry - since nothing about her would suprise us TODAY maybe that explains the fresh clues.

Thisisridiculous said...

I'm on the Shania train. However I would only be shocked if it came out that it was Annie Lenox as MV the woman has a powerful voice! but I'm positive it's not her.

shelly_bean said...

I agree with you Majik, someone like Whitney or Mariah or Janet are the only ones I would consider "core-shakers" and it can't be Mariah. I'm still kind of Janet but that does hinge on a rumor so...I guess I'm on the Whitney train for now.

Jen said...

think about the devastation of couples who chose "From this Moment" as their wedding song...

princessj1987 said...

J-LO is good guess but is it really a secret that she can't sing? Plus she's only done one tour. I distinctly remember this interview that she did promoting the film, Selena. The interviewer asked, "was that you singing in the film or was it a pre-recorded track?" And J-LO answers, "Haha. No. It was not me. I can't carry a tune." Four years later, she releases "On the 6".

SHANIA AND BRITNEY AREN'T ON THE CHART.

Gemini850 said...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^But thats only if the year is right. He said he might have fudge the dates alittle. I might do one of 2002 later on.

califblondy said...

I think Britney's voice sounds totally computerized now and I think that's why she lip syncs. Of course, J.Lo and Shania are good guesses too. Aaaagggghhh, how am I supposed to sleep tonight??

While I haven't seen a picture, someone who has says that one of Rebbie's kids looks 'xactly like Janet and is supposed to be Janet's secret kid.

Diana Frances Moulder (Lam) said...

It can't be Aubrey since it's not going to rock the music world. Still think it's Madge. If not her, more towards Whitney than Brit Brit.

Ellen said...

I wonder what the clue tomorrow will be? I keep thinking this is Britney now because her voice sounded way different on her first two albums (less distorted) and even though she isn't known for being an incredible singer, I think it would be way more shocking than when Milli Vanilli was discovered.

As for today's blind...I think the Lil Kim guess is a good one.

Gemini850 said...

Oh this is Christina first marriage too.

nunaurbiz said...

One of the things that makes me think it isn't either Britney OR Shania is that even at the height of both their singing careers, people weren't talking about their vocal prowess, but their stage acts, total package, etc. Shaninny didn't make a wave until she made the sexy video (directed by Bo and John Derek). Back then, the talk was all about her belly button and being sexy, most certainly NOT about her vocals.

So I'm still thinking whoever MV is, it's someone who took a LOT of credit for having some vocal chops.

And Montana, I'm with you. I bet tomorrow's clue includes the phrase "foreign born" (as in, she is or is not).

I also don't think any of the Pointer sisters subbed for Britney. Firstly, they are NOT considered studio singers who don't want to be out front. They were out front and their voices are recognizable and, may I say, considerably better than Britney's. To me, Britney's music sounds like her voice was extremely manufactured in the studio. If you're gonna get a singer to mask another, why would you overmanufacture their voice?

Gemini850 said...

oh...I missed another one. Mary J. Blige has never been divorce or publically seperated. This is her first marriage.

annie b. said...

Adrienne Bailon from the Cheetah Girls (are they considered a band? I'm out of the loop), she has acting credit and she dated the Kardashian brother so was on that show for a bit... would that work for the blind? she was the first that came to my mind.

Denise118 said...

Anyone know the backstory of Medina/J.Lo? Although Medina is back with J.Lo, she split with him back in 2003.

Picked this up in Wikipedia:
Medina managed Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and aided in the launch of the Sean John apparel and fragrance empire. During that period he met Jennifer Lopez, at the time a respected dancer, and managed her career in the music and film industry. Together Lopez and Medina created an apparel and fragrance line, "Glow by J.Lo". Although they parted ways in 2003, Medina was rehired in late 2008. He later managed the career of supermodel Tyra Banks co-creating the Emmy-winning "Tyra Banks Show". He has also managed singer Mariah Carey and helped her with her comeback in 2005 with The Emancipation of Mimi. He was let go by Carey in September 2008. Medina was also dismissed by actress/recording artist Brandy (fired him in 2004), R&B singer and Usher (who fired him in 2008). In late 2008 Medina reconnected with Jennifer Lopez as her manager. He currently represents both Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Benny was ranked #42 in Out Magazines' 50 most powerful people in 2008.

PJ Nelson said...

This blind has me captivated :)

chcj4 said...

Do I need a ticket to ride the Britney train?

flwrgurl said...

I am back on the j.lo bandwagon

Jaiden_S said...

I'll say it again. Nobody would be shocked to hear Britney had subbed vocals so it CAN'T be her. I don't think it's Shania, either.

JLo is my top choice, though I'm now starting to wonder about Whitney Houston. That would be HUGE.

JoElla said...

Earings.. Janet used to wear huge hoop earings! As much as I was defending her, that made me hop back on the Janet guess.

When was the last time we saw her with her hair pulled up?

equinox said...

Sounds like Shitney will be eliminated tomorrow.

JoElla said...

OH SNAP! Hubby juts said Rihanna.

Thoughts gang?

Superwife said...

JLo changed her tune after the Selina movie a few times. At first her story was that she couldn't hold a tune and then it morphed over time into how she did all the singing and the studio used Selina's vocals even though JLo's were allegedly superior. Ha! As if. JLo strikes me as the type of person who takes on the personality and traits of the person she's emulating so I can see her thinking she might have the singing chops equivalent to Selina's and convinced some studio execs to cut a record. As someone pointed out above one of the Pointer sister's passed away recently. I could see a Pointer sister's voice being used in place of JLo's and it being somewhat believable. I can't imagine a Pointer sister's voice being a stand in for Brit's.

genesis said...

rihanna for the earring thing? nah she's been wearing her hair up for the past few weeks/months, she's suddenly become confident about her forehead, we wouldve seen the ear thing a long time ago

Icecat said...

Wow. Damn You Enty!!

That clue still keeps everyone in place.

I'm still on Team Shania. I listened to one of her CD again on the way home and there was a noticable difference between that and some of the stuff I watched on youtube... Granted It's studio, so of course is it going to sound different, but I noticed it.

oooohhhh I cant wait for tomorrow, although I get the impression it is going to eliminate Shania...Boo.

If this is Brit Brit... oh friggin well right?
It's funny because she is just finishing a multi-million dollar tour...That would shock a lot of people I guess....

Time for a Cocktail!
Cheers!

Superwife said...

Folks, the blind item about the ripped ear and the blind item that references the singer MV are two different blind items.

Caroline said...

Can't be Janet. She doesn't have any kids and Enty said that the singer has at least one child. I don't think it's Britney. She was on star search when she was younger and she could sing her ass off. Plus, Britney's songs now aren't hard to sing. They're just fun songs and don't really involve any singing.

jax said...

oh shit! ok so tomrrow he's eliminating Shania,cuz some of you still don't hear when all us Canadians yell that the bitch can SING and SING LIVE.

Britney for the WIN...timing is too suspicious my dear friend!

Poppin' Fresh said...

OK So MV is Janet Jackson. I am a fan, I always wondered why she stopped "singing" after All for You. Now all she does is whisper.

This totally makes sense. Her first album long ago did terrible then she blew up with her second album. She been divorced, and rumored LOUDLY to have a child.

I also second the Lil Kim for the new BI.

jax said...

ps...dont forget before all the new teeth and a lil plastic surgery Shania WAS the UGLY ONE!!!! ;o)

snarkymcsnarkster said...

It's NOT Whitney. She was singing LIVE in church before she was "discovered" and she comes from a musical family. She can't fake her talent.

Thisisridiculous said...

I saw a couple of Shania's live video's on youtube, her voice then and now sound different. She might be able to sing but so can Cher and Cher has a shitty voice.

snarkymcsnarkster said...

I just thought of someone. How about Faith Hill?

sunnyside1213 said...

I like the Lil Kim guess for today's BI. I am still on the Britney train, even though I still want it to be JLo. (No ticket necessary chch4.)

genesis said...

Does anyone even like Faith Hill anymore?

Julia From Down Under said...

ok Ive been thinking (yep you can smell the rubber burning I know...) but this MV/S thing is the LONGEST RUNNING EPISODE OF "YOU'VE BEEN PUNK'D" EVER....... THERE IS NO MV OR S.....

ms_goddess said...

Just for the record, Faith Hill is on her second marriage. Her maiden name is Audrey Faith Perry. "Hill" is her ex-husband's last name.

Just to throw this out for consideration - I remember an episode of Diagnosis: Murder (Dick Van Dyke as the murder-solving doctor). There was a singer who murdered her assistant because the singer had suffered a botched surgery and could no longer sing. The assistant took up singing in her place and the singer lip-synched. The assistant started to balk and the singer killed her. Wondering if MV is older, maybe she used to have great pipes, then something happened that caused her voice to fail her and she had to rely on S to keep up the facade. (This could apply to Whitney with her drug abuse.)

Caroline said...

It's not Janet. Enty said that the guy came to 'S' in late 2000 to record the songs and that's when the artist got HUGE. Janet has been releasing albums since about 1984, but didn't get huge until 1990 when she did Rhythm Nation. It's' not her. Even if there are rumors she has a child, it's never been confirmed, so that rules her out.

Icecat said...

Julia - I dosen't matter if we've been punk'd. That isn't the issue here.

Godess - Yes this could very well be an "urban legend" the beauty of it is that we may NEVER know..

I'm stiil with Shania until Enty eliminates her tomorrow..LOL.

I'm on my third cocktail BTW!!

genesis said...

Have one for me ice! cuz I'm starting to lose all hope in this BI lol

Julia From Down Under said...

Na its Not @Icecat its fun!

Julia From Down Under said...

Oh & have one for me! Enjoy!

shelly_bean said...

cheers Icecat! I'll be playing catch up with you as soon as I get off work :)

budford said...

Whitney filed for legal separation.

Cheryl said...

Fine, I'm jumping off the Britney crazy train and I'm back on the 6 with JLo dammit.

I'm going with Nicole Scherzinger but I hope Lewis Hamilton is not the boyfriend involved.

Kingrey said...

Funny Girl and desertdweller, you've made strong arguments. Whose jaw would drop if they learned that this was Britney? And why would this producer get someone with mediocre vocals to cover Britney? Britney is not known as a SANGER; she's known as a performer. Whitney and Mariah are known, or used to be known as SANGERS. Blow your top off, give you goosebumps singers. It could be Shania, although not in the same type of singer as the previous 2. Perhaps tomorrow's clue will be MV was/is married to the Guy or, MV was/is not married to the Guy. That would be very definitive.

Quintessential Southerner said...

what's going to happen tomorrow is the one clue enty will give us, will leave at least 2-3 possible answers. jut watch!

who is little kim dating? DWTS is not a reality show.

Melody said...

I hope he eliminates all the Canadian guesses tomorrow so our Canadian people can calm down. lol I'm worried about them. On the other hands, Americans are accustomed to having our people dissed so it's safe to keep pounding on them.

Quintessential Southerner said...

^^^lol.

budford said...

Britney also filed for legal separation.

selenakyle said...

I still wonder if we ever eliminated Xtina or not! I would be shocked if it were she.

She was separated from the husband for a while, is young, had big tours, baby, married.

Kingrey said...

Could it be that EL brought the MV blind back because she is going to attempt a comeback or in the midst of a comeback?

Ellin said...

Excuse me! Cher does NOT have a shitty voice!

.robert said...

Now I'm lost again. On other sites the Madonna crowd is making good arguments. I'm just going to read from now on.

Julia From Down Under said...

yeah they rooting for madge but hey they didnt even know who Anastacia is and she is
American? http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Anastacia-Biography/F0F100B891D9D84D482569740013FA46 (hey and it was only a guess)

Thisisridiculous said...

Well I suppose that's a matter of opinion. :/

Patty said...

Faith Hill is either divorced or broke her engagement when she met Tim. I can't remember which. This info is from a behind the music episode.

Melinda C. said...

It's not Anastasia.

I have known her for years - she used to be a singer in a band that did many premiere parties, celebrity weddings etc. that I produced. The girl's got PIPES - she can sing for sure.

JLo all the way.

rummer said...

It's Britney Spears. I don't think the issue is whether or not she's an amazing talent. She's huge. It's that simple. No, Britney isn't or ever was considered the best singer in the world; she's a performer. And a lot of performers lipsynch, btw. So the fact that she's very obviously doing it doesn't mean that people will question her abilities entirely. Mariah was caught doing it on GMA; however, people don't question her singing abilities. Since Brit never had blow-you-away-style pipes, I think it's much easier to carry on the facade. It's the total package that sells Britney. And, am I the only one who noticed that in the song Soda Pop she sounds eerily similar to Christina Aguilera with that throaty voice she's doing?

CM said...

I still believe that this has to be someone HUGE. Possibly even someone that hasn't been mentioned. It's someone who toured THE WORLD and sold millions of records. It's got to be someone of Mariah's stature. However, I am certain it isn't Mariah as I know people who knew her in high school and she always had pipes ... unless something happened to those pipes (which would explain why she tends to lip synch and make excuses for lousy performances), but I don't believe it's her.

I don't think that anyone would care about Britney -- in any year let alone 2009. And Whitney has always been seen live and in church and all that, although she is of "that" calibre. MV is also a bitch. J-Lo? She's not a major singer. She does lip synch. She's also recorded in Spanish. Did the studio singer record in spanish too? I don't think that J-Lo was a mega superstar that would rock the industry. Christina Aguilera can also sing. No doubt about that one. Ditto for Celine. These are the types of names that would shock/rock the industry.

Shania still seems like a good guess. As does Janet Jackson if it is true that she does, indeed, have a child. I'd actually go with Janet over Shania because of her musical family connection, but Shania has had Mutt Lange on her side for a long time and not much recording -- AT ALL, lately. Is this the reason why?

Or is there someone else that we've overlooked?

I'm curious if this person is still recording since there is no more vocal help from the studio singer.

Julia From Down Under said...

Yeah she is gorgeous and sings beautiful ..... but ive never heard her live im so glad to hear that!!!!!! Thankyou

MizUndaStood said...

Hi everyone. Been reading CDAN for over a year now, first time posting. Love reading all your comments.

Could MV be Brandy?

She seemed to be a big deal years back and has disappeared.

CM said...

Madonna would be the kind of name that would shock, but she lip synchs but has also performed live at the Academy Awards. Can you lip that?

I'm still confused since Britney has been a singer in Mickey Mouse club and on Star Search so there has always been potential.

CM said...

Didn't the blind also say that when MV and the singer met that MV was a bit of a bitch ... I can see Madonna or Shania like that. Britney? Hmmmmmmmm

Julia From Down Under said...

what about cyndi lauper? does she fit at all with any clues? (sorry i dont know anything about her)maybe she sang for madge hahahahah

deliahstar said...

@ ms_goddess: I've been thinking the same thing aaaaaaaall day. That could be the other part of the blind that isn't completely accurate, so as to keep confidentiality. Not only is the time line fudged, but perhaps MV recorded successfully before S became involved.

budford said...

Check out Alicia Key's backup singer. Sounds like you know who to me and there is a managerial connection.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEHcg2trZRQ

CM said...

I don't think Brandy is a big enough name. Whoever this is is/was a huge seller for cds, stadiums/ tours, all over the world. This is in the Celine/ Madonna /Whitney / Mariah/ Shania/ Janet Jackson category.

CM said...

Buford, she's got a great voice, but I think that someone with her voice and from what I can tell,"look" would not fit since this back up singer was pretty much deemed an eyesore. No?

shiantologist said...

I dont think this is Brit because of this statement "So a meeting was arranged in my office and S and MV finally met face to face.." may not seem like much but I just can't see her as immature as she is even to this day, going into this situation alone. She would also have to put up the lump sum with no handelers, accountants etc noticing. I was on the Shania train until I took a closer look at "the guy might be completly out of the picture" why and how would mut be out of the picture if it was still his wife at the time?

Has Alicia been married or had a child or been a step mum? I was m reading from wiki "] Throughout her childhood, Keys was sent to music and dance classes by her mother.[12] She began playing the piano when she was seven and learned classical music by composers such as Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin.[4] She enrolled in the Professional Performing Arts School at the age of 12, where she majored in choir and began writing songs at the age of 14" which would say that she always had potential

JL said...

Just a couple of things:

1.) I think it needs to be someone smaller scale, as much as Ent is building this up. For everyone who was here for the Timmy/Shimmy debacle--remember the guesses were as lofty and Katherine freakin Hepburn and the reveal was less than lackluster.

2.) To all those saying that no one would be shocked if this was Britney--remember that we are savvy entertainment gossip fans. Average everyday people would be scandalized.

Icecat said...

Hey Everyone :)

Talking about Madonna on other sites? What sites?

Madonna hasen't really been ruled out, except the fact that she really never had a good singing voice. In fact, a lot of clues point to her; MV Madonna or Vadge or Madge. She's been called all those names. And the biggest is GUY. Her manager is named Guy, and her EX husband. Enty mentions Guy a lot, so you automatically think Madonna...She also has a song called "Shake". Shake up the music industry..mmm...

Alright I'm leaving now...See you all tomorrow!

*girl said...

So I leave for a bit and people start guessing JLo again?

Alright, here I go: I was the lead conductor on the JLo train until you carefully read the BI... hundreds of concerts but JLo barely performed.

I don't think this is going to be shocking as in "she was the greatest singer ever". Think about it, Milli Vanilli was best new artist. This is going to be shocking because she made so much money on the scam.

And I'm done.

Lisa (original) said...

I hadn't weighed in yet, but as much as I hate to, I'm throwing my guess Shania's way because I can't forget reading somewhere, or watching on her documentary how past co-singers in her Canadian resort show commented on what a nasty, rude piece of work she is, and how she'll not hesitate to throw you under the bus if it will advance her in some way (ala Showgirls staircase scene, lol). Sorry Shania.

budford said...

If you look at her At Last video, you can see she does not have a pop superstar look, not that I am saying she is unattractive.

But for anyone who would say there would be no one who could sing like that, I think this woman could. Also replay the other SSB, they are so close.

MV

Monday November 27 2006:

Someone who knows MV, but does not know about the S situation told me this morning that MV was contemplating an in depth interview to address some issues in her personal and professional life. Could this be one of the issues?


Tuesday September 04 2007

The only way the MV blind item will be revealed is if one of the contract signatories decides to talk or if all three were to die.

So my question is...who was having a lot of issues in the couple of years around 2006?

budford said...

No way that Madonna wouldnt know or that someone could pull this on her.

Julia From Down Under said...

Ferguson was the voice of Sally Brown in two Charlie Brown specials: It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown (1984) and Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown (1985). Fergie has done voice overs lol lol

Julia From Down Under said...

In 2003, Ferguson had a guest role on the Rocket Power special, Reggie's Big Beach Break, on Nickelodeon; she voiced a pop music star named Shaffika

she's done it a couple of times lol

Julia From Down Under said...

Fergie could be S?

Utah Jem said...

Maybe MV can sing okay, but not well enough to belt out a big ballad. I like Shania for this blind. She's toured, and was everywhere when she was big. Plus, there has to be a reason why a producer would be willing to go to this much trouble for a singer. Shania would have proven she is an entertainer, so maybe Mutt just felt she needed a bigger voice to get noticed.

Lauren said...

I really like the Adrienne Baillon guess for the BI today. Actually, I kind of like it a lot. I am not sure who guessed it way up there (and I am feeling too lazy to look), but they got no recognition for it because everyone is too obsessed with MV.

As far as MV goes, I really wish that people who remember that she:

A.) Was married/has been divorced/ legally separated at least once.
B.) Has at least one child.
C.) Was a total snot to a stranger basically doing her a favor.
D.) Had massive worldwide tours.
E.) Had some issues in 2006 and gave someone an "in depth interview"

There are a lot of clues if you click on the MV tag, people. Its not that hard.

Amit! said...

Or, at least considered giving someone an "in depth" interview. We don't know that she did...or if she did...well, we wouldn't be discussing the blind now. :)

shiantologist said...

but why would it say the guy might be out of the picture if he was her husband at the time I think it would have to be some one who could cut ties easier and really disapear if they wanted

amazonblue said...

Even with the rumblings from Henry Rollins and her widely known lip synching, the world would be totally shocked if MV was revealed to be Britney.
The millions of dollars in CD sales, concert revenues, and product endorsements not to mention the collusion of the record company and the recording studio employees to defraud the public would enrage any music lover.
The issue isn't the quality of her voice, it's the fraud and the profits generated from it.

shiantologist said...

just cant see brit pulling it off with only two other people knowing

Dr Spaceman said...

Not sure why anyone would be guessing Madonna as MV.

a) She has an incredibly weak voice. She does not built her career on her singing ability. It has been built on her being an amazing business woman and a chamelion who could adapt to new trends with aplomb.
b) Her career really took off in the late eighties and early nineties. Even if the timeline was way way off, Ent is not old enough to have been handling any legal "arrangment" of such importance at around that time.

Julia From Down Under said...

She appeared as a background vocalist on "I'm Real" (Murder remix), a collaboration by labelmate Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez (she also appeared in the music video for "Aint It Funny" (Murder remix), the second duet between Lopez and Rule, for which she wrote and also sang background vocals on), THIS BIO IS ON ASHANTI, COULD SHE HAVE BEEN S FOR MV (JLO)? JUST A GUESS.....

Karmen said...

Gah! I don't know who this could be! Can't stop thinking about this ...

Julia From Down Under said...

although Ashanti is beautiful....

Utah Jem said...

I don't think "S" has to be unattractive. I think the clue was that she didn't have "the look". That might mean the look for a style of music. Country music is mostly white girls. "S" just might not have fit the mold for a country singer. That might also explain MV's bitchy reaction.

Patrice said...

Britney gave that indepth, train wreck of an interview with Matt Lauer/Dateline in 2006.

Jen said...

I think the blind item is Adrienne Baillon from the Cheetah Girls. During the Kardashian wedding special I noticed she had earrings all the way up her ear

Julia From Down Under said...

Of Course! @ Utah Jem and she is ten years younger than Ms Lopez her bio on Rock On The Net shows she is very talented and 2006 was a quiet year take a look http://www.rockonthenet.com/artists-a/ashanti.htm

Tara said...

Didn't get through all the comments because Grey's Anatomy is on, but someone mentioned Toni Braxton on another post. I thought she sounded kind of plausible, however, does she have kids or been divorced, etc? I will look it up later...

Caroline said...

I'm pretty positive it's Brandy.

-She has a child
-Was married
-She killed someone in car accident in December 2006 (controversy)

Amit! said...

But was Brandy ever actually big enough to have this secret like blow the music industry apart?

Though, granted, Enty did make it feel as though the Timmy/Shimmy reveal was bigger than it was as well...

Cor said...

LOL @ Melody. Funniest response in the whole thread (coming from a Canadian!)

Chevelle said...

The real problem lies with Mutt. If this is Shania, all of the other bands he has ever worked with will be questioned. AC/DC replaced a dead lead singer quickly wouldn't you say. Def Leopard overcame a tragedy quickly wouldn't you say. Backstreet Boys, Jonas Brothers - do we need to say anything. Shania doesn't shake the industry to its core, she just starts the events that no one wants to start.

Chevelle said...

One more thing, read the review of Shania before Mutt came along:

http://www.epinions.com/review/pr-The_Complete_Limelight_Sessions_Eileen_Shania_Twain_Music/content_475459260036

Piper said...

Ent,
while you are at it give us more clues on the famous female HIV+ singer..... same person or?????

Annouck said...

Still not sure who it is but Shania did a Revlon commercial years ago!

Annouck said...

Piper,
I think he already "told" us by posting Annie Lennox in a HIV POSITVE tee shirt. I hope I'm wrong but that was my take on situation.

not on my dollar said...

Again it can't be Brandy because she WAS NEVER ACTUALLY MARRIED. SHE LIED to cover up her unwed pregnancy. At that time she was supposed to be the "good girl". Brandy unfortunately has never married.


ITA with the people who say maybe this person will not surprise some of us. Sometimes these BI reveals of celebrities are only familiar to a certain group and they rest of us either don't know them or if we do, don't really care one way or another about their lives.


I do hope someone on this blog figures out the correct names.


I want it to be someone well known for being a good vocalist i.e. Whitney, Barbra Streisand, Alicia K., Mariah, Christina, Celine, Aretha etc.


Any of them would be worth the number of hours put into trying to solve this B.I.

Annouck said...

Well that's all I have for tonight, I'm getting a headache thinking about this! PLEASE EL give us a REALLY GOOD clue tomorrow, not a vague one, after all it will Friday the 13th!!!!! Let us be able to narrow it down to no more than 2. Thanks!

Share said...

Guys - Brandy was never married. She lied about that. It came out when her "ex husband" started talking.

Besides - Brandy did the Cinderella movie in 1998 /99 with Whitney Houston producing. Whitney would have had to been on it.

ea73 said...

It's Britney. Don't overthink it.

MV isn't Britney or Christina. You guys are forgetting that they were on the Mickey Mouse Club and sang live on that show. They had to audition to make it on the show. They wouldn't have made it if they couldn't sing. Also, if you YouTube it you can see both of them singing acapella on various talkshows/interviews.

Shania would surprise me, but I don't think it's her. I've seen her sing acapella too. You need to find someone who has never sang live randomly and without preparation.

missanonymous said...

I agree 100% with those of you comparing this to Timmy/Shimmy. That was the blind that got me hooked on this blog, then made me so frustrated that I almost gave up on it entirely.

I totally think this is Britney. This originally came out prior to the semi-reveals from elsewhere about other people singing for her. Before that (and before she went completely crazy) this news would have been a shock to many. Now, not so much. Maybe that is why it is being revisited... If it is revealed, it isn't really a big deal and isn't really big news.

missanonymous said...

Oh yeah... And as I've said all along, YES... Britney used to be able to sing. As she got older and abused her body, her voice deteriorated. That is when the need for "S" came into play.

Amit! said...

The only thing I know with any certainty is that I don't want this to be Christina Aguilera or Gwen Stefani, lol.

Which, given some of the clrew, it more than likely isn't.

Cooper's Mom said...

This certainly sounds like Britney, can't wait for the reveal.

Amit! said...

*clues, not clrew. IDK what a clrew is, lol.

Saz said...

Missanonymous, yes Britney used to be able to sing, but when her voice deteriorated that's when they started making her voice sound really robotic. She's not using a backup singer, or else she'd sound a lot better. They're just digitalizing her voice. It's still her.

chopchop said...

ITA w/ missanonymous. Maybe to us gossip hounds, Britney lipsyncing would not be scandalous but to the average person it certainly would be. And I think we can all agree, MV or not, Britney sounds completely different now from when she was a kid on MMC. We can also agree that she sounds so different now than her first album, almost like a different person. S no longer ghost-sings for MV. Add to that, this blind was originally written before the Britney meltdown and subsequent self-destruction. I think Britney really fits. But remember I was on the Beyonce train so my batting average is crap.

Connie said...

I keep thinking Sheryl Crow. Has she been eliminated?

MAC said...

Does anybody else think that the use of the word "guy" in todays blind is of any importance?

annie b. said...

@Lauren thanks for the props! i was the original Adrienne Baillon guess so you don't have to scroll up. : )

amazonblue said...

Sheryl Crow was a popular back up singer for years before hitting it big. I believe she even toured with Michael Jackson back in the 80s.

klang said...

I found this site a few months ago and never knew about this MV blind....i've visited it every evening this week. I know Enty can't tell us this one but how do you find out the answers to others? Do we ever get an answer?

ok, here's why i'm writing...I think it is Brit-Brit. I know she has a bad voice and we all know it but like others have said, in general this is a huge disgrace for the industry. What is ALSO very interesting about Britney is how many other industry people she's worked with: Diddy, Moby, Diane Warren, Babyface, etc.

Enty also makes an interesting note on the blind: "MV has/had several Top 40 songs and CD's. They could have gone to #1 or languished in the 30's" -- Britney's career is ripe with songs that fluctuated in the top 40..sometimes #1 and many times never hitting below 20.

Mame Dennis said...

It's not Janet. For anyone old enough, they'll remember Janet in Good Times, Different Strokes, and Fame. She sung in all of them and she sounds basically the same during her highest peak of fame as she did then. Her first album, Janet Jackson, was in 1982. Her 2nd album, Dream Street, failed miserably.

Lisa (original) said...

Patrice beat me to it, but I found this on the, gum chewin' fake eyelash hangin' bad makeup wearin'..

"updated 11:21 a.m. PT, Thurs., June 15, 2006
In an emotional and candid interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer, pop icon Britney Spears talks about the state of her marriage, motherhood, the tabloids criticism about her skills as a mom, and why the paparazzi have gone too far. The exclusive interview will air on Thursday, June 15 on “Today” 7 a.m. and “Dateline” (9 p.m.)"


My revised guess is "It's Britney bitch!

Workshy said...

Is it too out there to suggest that the singer in question could be male? The term 'Guy' popped out at me in one of the earlier clues, and obviously I thought of Madonna immediately but her voice is way too distinctive, and sounds like her speaking voice. I'm also not convinced re. Whitney as her singing voice is similar to her speaking voice. It would be shocking if a female singer was recording tracks for a male artist. I'm going with Prince. Don't even know if he has a kid, but he could have a secret one! What do you think? What other men could it be?

Julia From Down Under said...

@workshy , yes I agree Madge, Brit Brit, Jlo , Christina all sound like their speaking voices...(just my uptake)I had a thought that Anastasia (yeah again I know , no one in the USA seems to know her but she was a world wide star) I thought maybe she was the voice behind the star so she would be S. Then thought mmmmm Ashanti sings like an angel maybe she was S thinking a backup singer oh now im just bogged down lol lol lmfao and have a huge headache thinking this is the "biggest prank since Ashton punk'd" hahahahhhahah

Ent has kept everyone guessing since 06 so 3 years..... and he will say on last clue day "sorry guys youve been punk'd" lol keeping in mind we dont know if he is really an entertainment lawyer (as a blogger pointed out) and to try and factor in how old he might be (also another blogger pointed out) and mmmmm how busy is an entertainment lawyer that they can sit and post stories and photographs ????? but im a sceptic Roswell for example and who really killed MM and JFK lol lol .......maybe well just never ever know hahahhahahhah but always have this underlying GAWD I WANT TO KNOW HAHAHHAHAHAH

Julia From Down Under said...

sorry for any typos too im on oz time so as @Icecat was doing earlier having a cocktail im having a glass of wine.

skindeep said...

JULIE FROM DOWNUNDER-we have a winner!! These people on here really believe this to all be true. It's so sad.
Thanks for giving insight! FAKE FAKE FAKE POST EVER!

skindeep said...

The blind item is really sad and disturbing.....GRRRROOOOS!

skindeep said...

I'd just like to also say....
Please read The Disclaimer on CDAN's Blog. In no way is this MV/S real....AT ALL!

Melody said...

skindeep, you're a troll and so I'm only trying this once and then plan on ignoring you along with all your other personae.

You and the other people like you (you, in other words) remind me of the "skeptics" who on St Patrick's Day go into O'Leary's bar in Dublin and try to tell everyone that leprechauns aren't real. YOU end up looking like a putz. Everyone here knows why the "disclaimer" needs to be there. Everyone here knows what Enty is about. You guys (you, in other words) are the ones who look like idiots.

I've been around here since the beginning. I don't post much since I usually can't guess the puzzles (that's what they are, you know, and they're good for the brain). I know where I am and so does everyone else except you. You're the one looking stupid. But then you've done that before.

skindeep said...

Melody, why are you so angry? I know where I am too. Leprachauns are real! I should know.... I live around a bunch of Leprachaun's. They all scare me. I can't sleep cause clowns will eat me...Plus, I drank tequila all night and my gay hairdresser's and I did a bunch of cola. We are pissed MV hasn't been revealed. We are Anynomous! We want to know the REAL MV! FREE SINGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nosey Parker said...

The person that wrote the Henry Rollins article jokes -So that's what Anita Pointer has been doing all these years! I always thought producers just threw Brit in a bag with a couple of rabid squirrels and stuck a mic in there. I don't know if Britney is getting help from an older black woman (as Rollins says), but I do know she's getting a lot of help from a little something called auto-tune.

The Pointer Sisters provided backing vocals for such artists as Grace Slick, Sylvester James, Boz Scaggs and Elvin Bishop. They also did a Burger King commercial. June wasn't always the lead vocals.

In 2004, June was charged with felony cocaine possession. At the time, she had not performed with the Pointer Sisters in more than three years.

June had a troubled history of drug and alcohol abuse, and suffered a stroke on February 27, 2006. While in the hospital, June was also diagnosed with breast cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer and bone cancer. She passed away on April 11,2006.

Maybe MV (Britney) dissed her because she looked like an addict? Could S = Sister? Was June spending all her money on drugs? If you move everything back about a year the story fits.

Sure it's not shocking NOW, but it would have been in 2006. June might not sound like Britney, but might have been 50% of her early voice. They didn't need June to sound good, they just needed June to sound like it could be Britney's real voice. Check out Britney's Soda Pop song that sounds a bit like Xtina.

Guy could be Max Martin the song writer, but he wouldn't have control of Britney's money. I think he was aware of this, but Larry Rudolph shopped his songs to June. Larry might not have been well know to S, but familar enough that Enty would know him from her description.

Larry Rudolph discovered and managed the then-unknown Britney Spears from 1999-2004, and a brief period in 2007. Britney fired him and reportedly blamed Rudolph for some of her missteps. (and had a melt down and did the interview with Matt Lauer around this time)

Maybe one of the reasons Larry was fired was because he was playing the shell game with her money?

One last thing...Look at the pics from the orginal post. The Pointer Sisters favored 40's style clothes at the beginning of their career. The outfits in this video match Enty's pics!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qHAZ25HYqU

Britney has one or more children and has been seperated/divorced atleast once. (For Britney the answer is two for each clue) I think Enty brought back this blind because of the lip-synching in Australia.

Nosey, I'm going to be seriously let down if this is Britney. :( Oh, well, next BI.

Nosey, haven't you already posted this?? I'm sorry... I've already read that little insight on the Diva 40's Era wardrobe picture you are tying into with the Pointer Sister's.

FAKE!

This was the first time that I've explained my opinion in detail. =]

It's cool if you don't agree.

It's 4am in California.

Goodnight.
