OHHHH IT IS NOT JESSICA SIMPSON.

It's Shania. FOR THE WIN.

Adventurous Kate said...

And NOT Mariah either! Enty, thank you so much...really, this is the best week ever!

Ryan said...

It's Britney, guys. She has at least one child with K-fed and there's still the matter of the baby she had with George Wendt.

For the WIN!!!

*girl said...

I do think he's narrowing it down to Shania for us.

Though, JLo does have kids... I know, I know, I was wrong with that guess.

I love how Enty realized we were far more obsessed with MV than any new blind he could have given us!

MontanaMarriott said...

I still think Jlo who came on the scene in 2000. I know this would give it away but if Enty could at least give us the style of music (R&B, Pop, Country, Jazz, Opera,etc) this chick sings,

Karmen said...

Agreed with girl. It's sad that few of us bothered to pay much attention to the blind yesterday.

Either Britney or Shania.

Preciousredtx said...

I have no guesses on this, though I am on the Brit or Shania train....

I have been OBSESSIVELY looking back all day long after reading and catching up on comments from yesterday's clue.......

selenakyle said...

Whoa! Now that puts a whole different spin on things.

Good one, Enty, thanks!

MontanaMarriott said...

Okay since English is my second language doesn't "has at least one child" mean she definitely has one but could have more? So Britney, Shania, Jlo are all still in the running.

Ms Cool said...

I think J. Lo. Jessica Simpson has been ruled out for me.

Emobacca said...

Jessica Simpson was never successful enough as a recording artist anyway to fit the original blind

Karmen said...

You're right, MontanaMarriott. I just forgot about JLo's dragon tale twins. She's still in the running.

Ashlae said...

I still think this is Shania. Britney sings on the spot for Diane Sawyer in this youtube clip. It's towards the end of this video, so it's not her.

Reva said...

Man I was SO sure this was Avril...there goes that guess. I just don't think it can be Shania b/c she has been around too long w/too many albums (4). Is anyone thinking it could be Michelle Branch? She disappeared after her 2nd album and has a kid (is also married).

Reva said...

follow up: All You Wanted was No. 8 in 2002

Adventurous Kate said...

It can't be J. Lo. Impossible.

Back when this blind was written, she had never toured. The blind says that there were worldwide tours.

Since then, she's only done one tour -- a US tour with her husband while she was pregnant.

Can't be her.

*girl said...

For everyone who hasn't read the comment trail from yesterday, a key to the blind that knocked out JLo was "hundreds of concerts all over the world"... JLo didn't tour practically at all.

And trust me, I was the lead conductor on the JLo train but I had to give up.

Ashlae said...

It can't be Michelle Branch. Enty hinted that MV was mega-famous superstar. I find it interesting that Shania has not put out a new album since 2002.

selenakyle said...

Brit, Shania, JLo or...what about Celine???
(sorry, if I've missed something)

To me, the most shocking answer (which this supposedly will be if found out) would be one of the "real singers" such as XTina, Celine, or Mariah.

It would be pretty dang shocking if one of these truly talented, multi-octave singers to be a fake or even partial fake to any degree.

Add Whitney, too.

We know some singers can belt that shit OUT. Britney can't sing, nor can Jess. These two would not be surprising, thus the blind would be totally lame if it were either of them.

VD said...

Also Michelle recorded with Santana...no way he'd be in on that.

Pookie said...

*girl...ita. not to mention that it wouldn't rock the music world to find out jho doesn't do her own tracks. she's pro-tooled and cubased to death in the studio just to make her sound average...not to mention that it's common industry knowledge that 99% of her 'live' performances have been full playback.

selenakyle said...

Exactly. Same with Madonner. We already know "singing" is a stretch for some of these gals.

Marisa said...

BAH! I hate this one b/c I'm obsessed with it.

You better tell us the answer you jerk

;)

ex1414 said...

It's Macy Grey, I tell's ya.

Reva said...

VD -- you are right about Michelle Branch, I totally forgot she recorded w/Santana. AHHH this is driving me nuts!

Kingrey said...

It's not Britney. I believe it was MAC who pasted 2 of EL's posts from '06 on yesterday's MV clue where EL 1.) Made it clear that MV is not the person who many people were guessing at the time. He also asked people to be respectful because that person (who is not MV) also reads the blog. 2.) Another post from '06 where EL praised Britney for being a smart businesswoman and a good person with whom he had a good professional and friendly relationship.
Also, Britney's album sales have not been as high as her debut album.
I am willing to bet it's someone we haven't thought of yet. Someone A+ possibly with multiple Grammys and thought of as tremendously talented. If it is JLo, would it shatter the music industry? I'm stumped.

VD said...

famous female jingle singers

sunnyside1213 said...

Oh, I was totally on the Mariah train. Now I am switching to Britney, though I would love for it to be JHo. Can't stand her.

Jingle Belle said...

As much as I hate Celine, it can't be her. She was very famous since childhood in Quebec.

Kat said...

I believe it was Jax who said that anyone from Ontario would know that this is ISN'T Shania. I agree wholeheartedly. Everyone in my old town knew Shania (Eileen) because she sang all over the place, including at one of the more popular resorts. She can definitely sing. As for Celine, she's actually been well-known in Canada as a francophone singer since the early eighties, and has proven time and time again that she has magic pipes.

It isn't Shania or Celine. As for who it is, I got nothing.

Preciousredtx said...

I am about to leave for home....looks like I will have LOTS of reading material when I get home!!!

jax said...

thanks , Kat, i was just going to re-post that.

Britney Spears FTW.

now that all the BS from Australia is coming out, Ent prob feels it's safer to expose and well timed!

VD said...

If it's not Brit...I'm on the Shania bandwagon. I really do not want it to be her. I like her music. Mutt doing it would rock the world. In a previous post Enty mentioned she was probably dumping him because he wasn't giving her hits. That we would have to listen to her "warble". Man I Feel Like A Woman is not what I would call warbling.

MontanaMarriott said...

Thanks for the touring inforamtion folks, so that scratches Jlo, my gawd this BI is driving me nuts with obsession, lol.

Ed said...

Whoa it just hit me, What about Gwen Stefani?

jax said...

ps- dont forget Henry Rollins after ent posted about MV was telling anyone who would listen that Britney does not sing on her records.

http://www.reddit.com/comments/6dgty/shocking_claim_by_henry_rollins_britney_spears

Beth said...

I agree, fellow Canadian here, it can't be Shania or Celine. They were both around years before they hit it big in the US. Especially Celine. She's been singing since she was around 11. Same voice.

I know some think it isn't Britney, but she's the only one that makes sense. It has to be someone really big and even though she's had her issues both personally and professionally, she's still massive.

shelly_bean said...

omg my level of interest (ok, maybe obesession) in this is getting ridiculous! I'm getting even less work done than usual.

I really hope it's not Britney...call me naive but I don't want to think she'd be such a bitch when she met S the first time.

C said...

I like the Stefani guess. Have you ever heard her live? She sounds NOTHING like what you hear on CD. And I'm allowing for a little bit of a difference because of the dancing & jumping. Oo oo, I like it!

jax said...

if anyone thinks this is Shania,think again, google Shania singing national anthem,she's opened SEVERAL hockey games singing LIVE and accoustic.

it's NOT her.

VD said...

Ok this isn't relevant. But I found it while trying to figure this blind out. LOL Dolly Parton...

pomme said...

MV is Britney or Christina Aguilera for me:
-they're as young as Beyonce,Pink,Nora Jones
- they started to work very young like Beyonce,..
-they've at least one child
-they were been married(Britney) or are married(Christina)
-they made world wide tour

Cheryl said...

I hereby renounce my JLo guess and jump on the Britney crazy train.

Not long after her meltdown, Cyndi Lauper invited her to go out on tour with her, to help her make a comeback. One condition was that she had to sing live. Britney's people turned her down.

(really wanted it to be JLo)

Ashlae said...

Whoever MV is, I think Enty would hate because of how they treated S. Enty hasn't said anything negative about Britney in any of his past posts about her.

MontanaMarriott said...

I just wiki'd Gwen S. and she started singing with No Doubt in the 80's.

Christina A. was a Mickey Mouse club kid and sang on star search and she could BLOW back then so I don't think this is her.

Jaiden_S said...

I don't think this is Shania. I also think it would shock nobody if we found out that Britney didn't sing her own songs. Big woo.
I really thought it was JLo. Does the tour thing knock her out of the running?

Kingrey said...

Well shelly, no worries, it's not Britney. EL likes Britney, as pointed out before. All clues point away from Britney. MV is someone EL doesn't seem to like.

sunnyside1213 said...

Oh, thanks Cheryl. That is a great clue.

pomme said...

MV is Britney!

someone (on BlindGossip.com) remembers an interview (march 2008)on Dlisted.com with Henry Rollins(rock singer) saying this story on Britney!

pomme said...

Henry Rollins interview:
www.dlisted.com/node/24780

Napoleon In Rags said...

Not Gwen. No Doubt released their first album in '91, and got dropped from their label due to a near complete lack of interest. They did a self-release in...'93, I think, before Tragic Kingdom took off in '95. She sounded exactly the same on TK and everything that came after as she did on those forgotten earlier albums.

Cali Girl said...

I was on the Shania b/w, but given the number of posters who've heard her sing before she was bigtime, I'll concede.

Someone, I think in yesterday's thread, had thrown out the suggestion that perhaps the scandal isn't in the singer, but more in the people who made it happen? What if this is a lesser known person, maybe huge in Latin America, or Europe, who sold millions, toured, etc, but isn't on the A-list, but their producer is? What if a Tommy Mottola or a Mutt Lange-level player was behind the hoax and that's the industry-rocking scandal?

cdanluva said...

i seriously need some therapy for my MV obsession.

i still think MV is someone older, ie this happened maybe early 90's/late 80's?

or, older - i still like Diana Ross.

Ashlae said...

I agree King, it does seem that EL likes Britney. I was looking back at previous posts and I didn't see EL write anything negative about Britney. As I said before MV is someone that EL hates. Do you guys know of any singers that EL hates?

VD said...

stevie nicks

:P

cdanluva said...

pat benetar?

Sarah said...

What about Nelly Furtado? She came out really fast around 2000, come out with an album every couple years, she has a kid. And I never thought she sounded the same live.

chopchop said...

Gwen Stefani can not sing either. Have you heard Hollaback Girl?? A tone deaf chimp would sound better.

Icecat said...

Well Crap!

I missed a bunch driving home from work...
Lots to ponder. I still think I'm on the Shania Train...

Kingrey said...

Cali Girl, you have a most interesting theory.

jenna said...

I think it's Madonna. Or I'll go lower scale and say Michelle Branch. Both worked with Guy Oseary... this kinda sound like him. Also , enty has this comment in the blind

"I actually think the record company to this day has no idea what went on as the Guy was very good at what he does/did"

I think he is giving us a clue by deliberately capitalizing the 'G' in Guy.

Do NOT understand the Britney guesses. She fits the time frame and the marriage kids thing but so do a lot of people. Nobody has even thought she has a great voice. If you were going to get somebody else to sing while someone else was the 'face' of the music, you'd get someone with a better voice surely?

Jill said...

I have thrown around a lot of names in my head and even made little lists of known info, sad!!! I have one that I haven't seen mentioned yet, that I think fits.

Brandy (That boy is mine)... Her second album sold more than her first, the dates don't match, she has a child, she is divorced, she sold millions of albums, and has since pretty much disappeared.

Megan said...

Shania completely changed country music and if it ever came out that Mutt had anything to do with it that would be huge for both country and rock. If s died how did up get made though? It would explain why one of the most successful artists hasn't released anything recently and the record label says no way for a new album. Why did mutt and Shanias marriage break up anyway?

VD said...

Hoe could we have thought it was Mary J Blige??? Seriously...singing with the Boston Pops.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txdDtKO9Ha8

Here's a thought what if Enty cose 2000 because that is when the payments stopped. He did fudge the dates.

jenna said...

So, if it is Michelle Branch, maybe nbobody would care about her. But the fact that it was Guy Oseary would be big news.

mlovesny said...

It's not shania, britney,celine, christina- they all came out before 2000.It's not gwen, avril,whitney, or mariah(she doesn't have a kid). Not streisand- she has a kid)same with cher(she has a kid). I have no clue. Please more clues Enty! Have a good day.

VD said...

Not Christina Aguilera either.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=512Kj1VsbgA&feature=related

justche said...

Reba has a child
Whitney has at least one child


The shake the music community to the core has to be more than pop divas.

And because I won't totally give up on - Streisand has one too ;)

VD said...

VD said...

Enty fudged the dates so the 2000 is not hard and fast...just a starting point of something. It could be a starting point of anything. grrrr arrrgh this is hard

JoElla said...

The only thing that is keeping me from being 100% on the Whitney bandwagon is remembering seeing her sing live when the troops came back home from the first war in Iraq. She was fantab!!

but ruh roh... Annie Lennox is in the random pics today.. Please tell me I am wrong about being suspect of Annie

.robert said...

justche, that would be a stunner.

*girl said...

Okay, because we're obviously so obsessed with this I'm going to recycle a comment I made before.

Who's to say that MV can't sing? It's just that she's not as good as S. If you have someone like Shania who can sing but wasn't strong enough to be super famous couldn't they give her a "push" with the extra vocals?

Also, the blind suggests the producer had access to MV's money. Mutt totally would as her husband. And maybe he wasn't sure if she was going to do more albums (with him specifically) because they had troubles way back when? Or he knew she wanted to stop once having a kid?

Yes, I wasted most of today thinking about this.

chcj4 said...

I am OBSESSED w/ this freakin' blind!
My guess: Paula Abdul.
The burden of carrying this secret around made her an alcoholic & pill popper!
2nd guess: Britney.

Felly said...

Sarah MacLachlan.

cajun cutie said...

I still say its Jennifer Lopez or Britney. Both are known to use ghost singers.

annabella said...

this is my first time commenting, though I read the blog every day. enty, thank you for many hours of gossipy fun that is several cuts above the other sites.

at one point britney had a pretty big, though not pretty voice. has this been posted yet?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYoUi0Cyd88&feature=related

Harriet Hellfire said...

Cajun Cutie, that's why it's neither of them. It's a well known fact that they are sweetened (and sometimes replaced almost entirely) by other singers. Enty says it would be shocking if it came out. Everybody already knows, so why make it a blind?

Icecat said...

Thanks VD. Interesting. Need to do a little more research on that. Have you found anything saying she had breast cancer??

*girl - I totally agree. The singer could sing, but not GREAT. She could probably hold her own in the random small live performances (because lets face it - we are always more forgiving with live performances because so many things can factor into a live performance sounding bad right?)...But on the CD's and Big Tours it was mostly S.....

I believe Enty might have fudged by as much as 10 years...

I'm still riding that Shania train...

And, I also got nothing done today. I am so glad you all are out here obsessing with me :)

blog hopper said...

It has to be someone who people actually find extremely talented. JLo and Britney have always been famous because they can dance and put on a show, not for their vocals.

Tori Amos ftw!

Colleen said...

I was convinced it was Xtina or Jessica Simpson but now I'm leaning towards Xtina or Shania but what about Lauryn Hill? It would be scandalous because she's won so many Grammy Awards - awards that "she" technically didn't win. Just a thought that the rocking the industry comment could refer to someone who won a lot of Grammy Awards for singing they didn't even do.

CM said...

I am also finding it hard to believe it's Britney. Besides, would anyone care?

Also, Britney was also on Mickey Mouse club (with Xtina and Justin Timberlake .. and others) AND Star Search and sang live. I also remember her singing live somewhere ... SNL, maybe? She did "Just a Girl, not yet a woman" and she definitely did that live.

In other words.
I got nothing.

jenna said...

I still think it's Michelle branch. She's married with a kid too, and as well as the 'this Guy' (also the title of a Madonna song incidentally) comment Enty also says

"MV was everywhere..on television, radio, awards shows, commercials..EVERYWHERE"

Michelle Branch's first single was called 'everywhere'.

Britney and Jlo are not really thought of as 'singers' really are they? Plus, it seems to be well documented that Brit Brit uses 'ghost singers' then her voice is layered on top.

Maplegirl said...

More water on the Shania fire. I worked at Deerhurst the same time she was in the stage show, and she can sing. I remember her brother talking about the record companies that were after her, so why a hoax? I think she doesn't make music anymore because she's a down to earth person who has more money than she'll ever need. She and Mutt divorced because he stepped out.

jenna said...

@Colleen, yeah but Lauren was in the Fugees before going solo. I doubt she would have had a ghost singer for being in that band.

Basil said...

As others from Canada have said, it can't be either Shania or Celine. So you can stop thinking it is. They were popular in Canada waaaay before they hit it big in the States and I have heard them sing live before. Same voice in interviews and recordings.

But if I had to guess, it would be Whitney.

Icecat said...

LOL - Tori Amos...That's funny.

cajun cutie said...

@Harriet Hellfire

okay you do have a point there.


Shania would be shocking I guess.

Okay I am going with Shania

Coisinha said...

Not Michelle Branch.
She keep posting new videos on youtube singing with just a guitar.
She does LiveStream for twitter fans and sing live requested songs and she sounds the same.

kimmypie1 said...

I also think Nelly Fertado

Tanagra said...

I just don't think the reveal that Michelle Branch didn't sing her own songs would blow the music industry apart and be a bigger scandal than Milli Vanilli was. And her recorded singing voice is pleasant (like any girl you'd hear in a high school choir) but not that impressive.

Sarah McLaughlin would be more scandalous, but I really don't think it's her. There's a performance of hers that I love on Youtube of "Ice Cream" and she sounds as good as she does on the record, but there's lots of adlibbing. I don't think you'd be able to add what she did there flawlessly into a lip synched song.

I'm trying to think of someone who's a huge star worldwide but perhaps less known in the States. Kylie Minogue?

Tanagra said...

Oh, wait. Kylie has no children. Nevermind.

Icecat said...

I agree about Michelle Branch. I couldn't even name one of her songs...

Andrea said...

What about Janet Jackson? She was married.. is A+ list, has toured everywhere..and it is rumored that she had a child at a very young age that her sister raised. Given the music family that the Jackson's are... that would make an impact on the music industry...

Coisinha said...

Not Nelly Furtado,
here's a live video from this year, you can hear the breathing, it is live and she sounds exactly the same as in I'm Like a Bird.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvxwofrkQFM

annie b. said...

would ANYONE be shocked if this were britney??? heck no. however, shania, WAS the big thing back in the day... now that would be goooooood!!

Tanagra said...

Icecat said...
LOL - Tori Amos...That's funny.
-------------------------

Aww. Don't break my heart. Lol.

Tori sounds better live than she does recorded.

Coisinha said...

I'm a "little" obsessed with this...
been reading all the comments!

Why would S come to a lawyer in the USA if the MV is not really that famous in the states?

annie b. said...

oh yeah and if i could request a guess, dear enty, it would be this...

has mv ever had a behind the music done on her???

hmmm...

lmnop said...

Faith Hill?

Icecat said...

Tanagra - I was being very sarcastic. I LOVE Tori and have seen her many times - One being from the third row and another in a high school auditorium. She is Fucking AMAZING!
No heart breaking here ;)

jenna said...

well, Michelle branch was just a guess because I'm almost convinced the producer is Guy Oseary, which would be VERY scandalous. He is very well known in the industry. ENty kept referring to the producer as 'the Guy' or 'easier for Guy to pull off'
always with a capital G. why would you capitalize the G? once is a typo but it occurs 2 or 3 times in the blind.

Guy Oseary's other female clients include, Madonna and Alanis. Michelle seems the most likely out of thise three.

Quintessential Southerner said...

Tanagra said...

Good point, Coisinha. I don't know how that detail could have slipped my mind. I just can't think of anyone who was or is THAT famous who wasn't a well documented child/teenage performer first.

Katy said...

What about Toni Braxton? Filed for bankruptcy between albums, 40 millions copies sold, married and has a kid. There was even a breast cancer scare...

The only problem is that she has performed on Broadway.

I got nothin' :(

missycaro said...

Erykah Badu

Ellebee said...

Brandy is an interesting guess. She had a tv show and was all over the media.

moocow said...

maybe the "rock the music industry" relates more to when the blind was originally written but does not hold up today? in that case it could still be britney.

shelly_bean said...

okay, not sure if this means anything, but...I was reading the pevious MV entries and in November 2006 Enty mentioned she was considering doing a big interview and I immediately thought of Brit Brit's disasteroua one with Matt Lauer in 2006. Turns out it aired in July 06. totally grasping at straws here, but can we eliminate Britney based on that?

a few people have mentioned Janet Jackson. is there any reason it CAN'T be her? Assuming the story about her having a child is true and we know Enty fudged the dates, it could work

shelly_bean said...

moocow, I was thinking the same thing. A lot's changed in music in the past 3 years

Amit! said...

Has Alanis been disqualified yet?

Granted, I don't think it's her...

I REALLY hope this doesn't turn out to be XTina, and I highly doubt that it's Gwen Stefani.

If it maybe happened way earlier on...what about someone like Debbie Gibson or Tiffany?

JoElla said...

I don't think it is Janet. I have seen her live when she was little (Jackson 5, Jackson 5 w/ family, the Jacksons)

She had the pipes way back when (Pretend this doesn't age me, this was in the 70's)

redhotpepper said...

My hubby would be crushed if it was Shania. At our house, she is not Shania, she is mmmmmmShania! She is on his laminated list.

Cor said...

Is there any reason Christina was thrown out of the running?

I was on the Shania train, but I trust my fellow Canadians, as I saw Avril live and knew she was singing, and she is out of the running today.

Britney? Shake the music world? Not. I took my daughter to see her this spring and it was such a lip synced performance. Even my 12 year old could tell.

lionsden said...

I really have no idea who it is. Shania was a guest judge (in place of Paula Abdoul) during the American Idol auditions in Chicago this summer. Some speculated she's considering a comeback. Probably isn't her.

lionsden said...

Lisa (original) said...

It's been like Christmas every day this week with all these reveals!
Thanks Ent :-)

Fem said...

I'm not sure I really think its her, but ignoring the dates Toni Braxton fits in a lot of ways.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toni_Braxton

Coisinha said...

Christina would definitely shock the world, but she would have to be the best FAKER EVER!!! She's been known as a great singer since she was a child.
Here's a video from 1999, she's singing a cappella.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4SBps38oSw

valerie said...

No way is this Tori Amos. I've seen her live dozens of times, and every concert she does, even on the same tour, features different - and often impromptu - songs. She's definitely not lipsynching.

It's not Sarah M either. Her voice is well documented as fabulous, going back to when she was a young phenom in Canada.

Has Alanis been married? Engaged, yes, but not sure if she ever actually got married.

I still like the JLo guess. It would be scandalous because she sold so many, many albums. Jenny from the (digitally enhanced) block.

Sylvan Ramble said...

Thalia

Lissa said...

I still think it is Janet Jackson. I know I am the minority here, but everything fits.

chris said...

Get on the Britney train. The good seats are going fast.

Icecat said...

Okay I just had a thought....IF Janet had a secret child....Somewhere in the Blind Enty say's "oh about 9 months later" and I noticed some of you have speculated that, that equaled a pregnancy...This could, perhaps, possibly be Janet...
I admit it would rock the world if it we're a Jackson...

Jess[ie] said...

i think it's ashlee simpson

Andy said...

I don't believe it's Shania, either. She worked in Nashville and produced one album before meeting Mutt. She had a hard time gaining acceptance down there and those country boys in Nashville would not hesitate to expose her as a fraud. I find it hard to believe she could keep it a secret this long.

Has anyone considered it to be Christina Aguilera? She has been inactive a long time, I don't recall her touring much and her videos were all about the sleaze.

lurkerxx said...

This story reminds me of Martha Wash. Not sure if it could happen to her again, but lightning sometimes strikes twice.

Ed said...

OK this is totally random and way out there but what about Vonda Shepherd? Did the Ally McBeal theme, was everywhere for a few years then disappeared, backed by David E Kelly

tallgirl said...

Christina performed last minute-live acapella on SNL a during her "I am Beautiful" phase. No way it's her.

MoodyBlueEyes said...

I'm on the Janet Jackson train - that's the only one I can see that would 'rock the music industry' if it were to come out. The rest? Meh. It may be a passing scandal and some gossip, but not a huge deal.

Lissa said...

Especially if you listen to Janet's last albums. Her voice is barely above a whisper. Her earlier music was very powerful. Black Cat for example and Control. She doesn't sound the way she speaks either on those albums.

Katy said...

Sylvan Ramble,

I thought Thalia,too, especially since she's married to Tommy Motolla, but a quick search shows that she was big in Latin America before coming to America. She started in a girl group. It seems hard to be part of a group, then have someone ghost sing for her during a solo career.

Lucy Hollingsworth said...

I was also thinking Faith Hill. If not her, another huge crossover singer. Liking the Janet guess too.

shakey said...

As others have pointed out, at the time of the original posting, and at the time of Ent finding out MV's secret in the first place, it would have been absolutely scandalous if it was Britney. I think outside of our CDaN world, it still would be - not now maybe, but to find out shenanigans were going on at her pinnacle? Would have broken a lot of little girl hearts to find out their idol was fake. Not to mention all the millions made from a lie. That's fraud.

Re Celine - no way would Ent be so mean as to give that kind of clue today of all days.

I'm jumping on the Janet train, just because I'm seriously thinking EL fudged the timeline so that the payments stopped in 2000.

Like Lissa said, Janet's 90's work was fantastic, BUT starting in 2001, her stuff took a severe nose dive in popularity, especially with Damita Jo in 03 / 04.

Oh, and to whoever mentioned that Janet had a big voice when she was younger - so did Britney, but not anymore.

And this would screw the music community 6 ways from Sunday.

Leann Rimes

Leila said...

I think that it might be Britney because of the timing of the repost of the blind. There's the Rollins interview and Britney getting called out for lipsynching in Australia. Suddenly, nobody would be surprised that it was Britney anymore.

Kiersten said...

It can't be Britney. I remember she did a VMA performance back in the day and she was doing a medley. When she first came off it was so off-key and awful and then the next song turned into a pre-recorded song. I doubt they would have had her attempt to sing live if S was doing her songs.

Share said...

There is no way in hell that it is LeeAnne Rimes. She has been recording with the same voice since she was like 14. She also has a new album coming out soon, I believe.

And, she is still touring.

i,m just going to throw someone out who no one has said yet...lauren hill...but she was in the fugees...

Denise118 said...

It has to be someone who has had the same musical producer for all their top 40 albums and was financially strapped. Timeline is unclear, pre 2000 perhaps?

Who could this be?

Dianne P said...

I don't think it's Janet Jackson because I don't think she's generally known for having a great voice. She has a pleasant voice and she's a great dancer (and beautiful) but that's pretty much it. It's always been clear that her voice gets some help in the studio and that she prob wouldn't be famous if she weren't a Jackson.

Can't really be Asslee Simpson, either, as her lip-synching is well known.

Damn, this is driving me crazy.

littlemanwhatnow said...

i don't think it would be lauren but i thought i would add someone new...and that bitch is crazy

Dschingis said...

Melissa Etheridge

married
children
follow up albums were better than debut
was everywhere with some great songs,
world tours


Producer Chris Blackwell - Non Performer rock´n roll Hall of Fame

That would be shocking. Or equally big names as Gloria Estefan.


Some additional thoughts:

MV could have later improved her singing to match the beginning standards set by S. S was singing because the songs, once written, need to be on the market.

Its was said that MV would change styles, so that the producer would not pay S anymore. He probably gave her some peanuts out of his own/label pockets, not having access to the singers funds.

from the guesses i like the J Jackson guess, because she would be the only one who would be worth the risk. Because of the money her name were expected to bring in. Otherwise you take a new pretty face that can sing, give her the songs and market her properly. That was done often enough. Just recently this has become a show that got talent...:-)

Interplanet said...

Assuming the 2000 date is really "fudgible", and this could have taken place in the 80s, here's an on the limb guess: Taylor Dayne and Clive Davis. She signed with Arista in the early mid 80s when Clive was there. She has several "gold" records but stopped recording in 1998 until 2008 when she came out with a new album (I haven't heard it). She's had children via a surrogate. Here's the wiki article:

Janet Jackson has NO CHILDREN!!!!!!! Silly people!

Dont fit.

It is J-Lo
She's the only one who had no prior singing until she appeared as a triple threat.

audieh_1 said...

Maybe it is a female singer dubbing the voice for a higher pitched male singer who has lost their voice. That does happen and when $$$$ is on the line, faking it would be a solution...so maybe someone who worked with Quincy Jones, or under the Motown label...like Smokey.

Jamie's Girl said...

OK, people. I thought it was very clear that it is not Jessican Simpson because everyone expects her to be a fake.

It's not Britt-Britt either. She is not a great singer. It would have to be a producer like Mutt Lange, who has a wife that fakes it. Or worse... Faith Hill.

Squeezebox said...

'Kay, I'm gonna pitch one out there based on the assumption that Enty is fudging dates and time intervals to cover his butt.

Sade. Torchy singer (and aren't the images associated with the blind are a clue?) who suddenly appeared on the charts and made it big. She even won an American Music Award and scored two Grammy nominations in...2002, if I recall correctly. She was even awarded an OBE by the Queen.

She can be a bit of a beeyotch, as a cop who arrested her on a traffic infraction in Jamaica learned. And she's quite beautiful, so I can see her putting down someone with better pipes but worse looks.

Yes, she broke on the scene years before then, but again, Enty could be fudging the dates. She did quite a bit of touring, television, the whole nine yards.

Sade has been married and has one child, which again fits the hints.

As for the distinctive mystery man that Enty was able to ID from "S's" description? Sade's producer Robin Millar is blind. Blindness is a fairly distinctive feature.

Heck, maybe "S" being used as the pseudonym of the real singer is another pointer to Sade.

Sade's productivity has been very erratic over the years. She's not toured much for quite a long while, either.

Ashton said...

I think Christina Aguilera can be eliminated. It's well documented that she has had that voice on her since a child. There's video of her at age 6 singing the mess out of a Mariah Carey song. Besides, she's sung on the spot acapella plenty of times.

I don't think it would be shocking if this was Britney because it's a known fact that she doesn't have the best voice but the timing of this blind being reposted is interesting due to the fact the Brit is having some drama in Aus with her lip syncing.

In other words, I have no idea who this can be. But will we ever find out anyway? If Enty tells, his job can be at stake.

Big Sur Expedition 2008! said...

You guys....it's always been JLo. Don't doubt yourselves now that I have a clue that fits.

Gemini850 said...

It could be Christina, But I always thought she could sing, even when she was little, But you never know. I know that it would be a blow in the music industry if this was Christina instead of Britney. Because Christina is known for her singing not Britney.

But I think it is still Janet. At first that child thing tripped me up, But than I started to think about them rumors of her having a child. I have seen a pic of the suppose to be child and she do look mixed. Also the Jackson's say she is ADOPTED. They don't even say this is Rebbie, or Randy child. But adopted. The girl look just like Christina Debarge, the girl who sang goodbye. Christina dad is James who was married to Janet. The jackson girl looks like Christina accepted darker and thicker hair. It would def. rock the U.S. if this was a JACKSON.

Angela said...

I am thinking Solange Knowles..she was married and has one adorable child...

Gemini850 said...

So until cdan says MV is white, or MV is not black or MV is foreign born (Like was born in Canada) or just flat out say its not Janet, than my guess will be Janet.

Also Janet had two singles in the top 40 charts in 2001. She was everywhere with that superbowl incident.

Amit! said...

Sade. Man, I forgot all about Sade.

That's not an altogether horrible guess.

not on my dollar said...

Sade would make sense except that her voice is the same when she's singing and talking.

Watch her live performances on youtube.

I wonder if 2000 is when all of this ended instead of when it began?

Also I don't think anybody would care in the year 2009 if Sade pulled a Milli Vanilli back in the 90's.

She is only relevant to the Old School group and her last major cd was back in 1994.

What if it IS Mariah and Enty's just making a Nick Cannon joke?

48MonthVacation said...

I have seen Janet live in concert and sing live with no background recording- I really don't think it is her. Also, I would think that "has child/ren" would mean that MV has known and seen children, not rumored children, but that is just my two cents.

Also, do you have a link to a picture of the child that is supposed to be hers? I would love to see what she/he looks like. :-)

I have no idea who the heck this is, but I also have seen Xtina live on SNL and know it can't be her- the girl can SANG. Also have a friend who dances on tour with Xtina- she says she is a fabu singer.

AZEmily said...

so MV has at least one child which eliminates Jessica Simpson, Mariah, Beyonce and possibly Janet(wish we could prove she had a kid).

We can also eliminate JLo because she hadn't toured at all until long after the original BI was posted.

I'm intrigued by the Brandy guess but I don't think revealing that now would be shattering unless its going to devastate the other reputations involved. Who would her "Guy" have been?

I would love for this to be the Material Fraud but I don't think it is.

I like the Shania guess...everything fits well. Its never stated that MV isn't talented or can't sing (we've just made that assumption) so those from Canada attesting to her talent don't convince me it can't still be her. The only thing nagging me about this guess is the statement someone else made about how Nashville would LOVE to expose her so it would have been hard for them to keep this secret.

Andrew said...

Wasn't there some scandel with Martha Wash and C&C Music Company back in the 90's regarding the group using her voice and she not being credited for it?
Also I wonder if we should be looking at a artist that has been around for ages. Jlo, Britney etc have all been targets of lip synching for years so I can't see that being much of a scandel if it came out that they did. But someone like Diana Ross on the other hand never really had that much of a strong voice. When she was with the Supremes, the othe members pretty well made up for her lack of vocals. Then when she went solo her voice seemed to be so much stronger and don't forget she had Berry Gordy's support for many years(and also had his child)

Melody said...

I can appreciate our Canadian friends staunchly defending their fellow Canadians (they seemed to have all been ruled out) but the clips I have heard of early Shania seemed to suggest very little range to me. Yes, she could sing but did she sing well enough to go global in the way she did? My ex-daughter-in-law has a better voice than most commercial singers and she still sings in lounges.

I have nothing against Twain personally, I just think she fits the description if we can exclude the 2000 date. The chanteuse picture Enty used in the new MV blind had a Canadian copyright.

It's not anyone who isn't thought to be a good singer since no one would be surprised to find out Jessica Simpson (or anyone of that ilk) can't sing well. It's not a little-known singer either (and frankly, I barely know who Jessica Simpson is). It's not someone whose "sweetening" has already been leaked since, again, it wouldn't shake-up the world and quite possibly Enty wouldn't have to dance as much as he's doing (although his legal participation would limit his ability to disclose any detail).

All the American singers are game as far as I'm concerned. lol There's a lot of them who can't sing a note and who get by on lipgloss, canard and confection. Which means there's a strong possibility it might be Janet Jackson. :)

Char said...

I'm not saying its not Shania because people have seen her sing... I'm saying it's not Shania because she had an album out BEFORE she ever met Mutt Lange. And it's the same singing voice (totally different style of country music but unmistakably the same voice). The only way it's her is if "S" has an almost identical voice to Shania's own voice, and in that case, why bother?!

Faith Hill is an interesting guess, but she often sings duets live with Tim at concerts. There would have to be an awful lot of people in on the secret if it were her.

LeAnn Rimes has no children, nor does Mariah Carey and a bunch of other people that have been guessed.

IF the Janet Jackson rumours about her child are true, then I'm on the Janet Jackson train now. But, that would a bit of a leap to think that Enty would give that clue, for something that's not widely known. Or maybe he did that on purpose because he really can't have us guessing this one?

Michelle Branch joined a country duo (The Wreckers) after her solo stuff, and did an album. Her voice sounds the same in the duo as it did in her solo stuff, and she has another solo album coming out next year, which is meant to be largely accoustic. Don't think it's her.

Nosey Parker said...

I've seen Xtina and her voice is real. I believe the people from Canada that say it's not Shania or Celine.

I'm so excited about this blind!

Oh Shauna. If you don't like it, then you can leave.

No, seriously. Please leave. Right now.

shauna said...

LOL!Girl...FYI,this shady business is why people hate American pop culture. It deeper than you even realize. ENTY,Do something great for a change and stand for what is right.

I always stand by what I believe. I can sleep at night. Unlike, some people.

Girl, I suggest you also take attention elsewhere than telling people what to do on the internet. All I am asking for is the truth. If I bought into an artist that isn't even the real deal. I WANT TO KNOW. I DESERVE TO KNOW.
Thanks.

Icecat said...

Hey Shauna - If you're over it, then get out of here. No one is twisting your arm to be here or comment. Let us have our fun in peace...

Just sayin..

genesis said...

Shauna we all deserve to know but if he tells us flat out it's like winning the game without even starting. Borrrringg.

Icecat said...

For all of the people out there who are defending Shania - There is one person who we haven't talked much about that fits (I think)..

Whitney anyone?? Have we ruled her out yet??

I would never have thought that, and she was/is a Diva. I think she is still high enough up there for it to Shake up the music industry...I dunno.. just trying to throw another name into the mix...

genesis said...

Oooo whitney, hmm, I like that guess

shauna said...

Look...It's not real. O.K.?? The public is not THAT stupid. All the artist's you lovely people have been investigating I'm sorry to say....ARE THE REAL SINGER's. Except
for Britney,but apparently, everyone here find's that acceptable.

It's not fun when you are chasing something that isn't there. You know who I think it is....JAMES BROWN. There you go! Case solved.

shauna said...

this is MV.
bye for now!

*girl said...

Shauna, if it is true then Enty can't exactly state who it is due to confidentiality agreements.

If it's not true, then we've all had a really good time guessing. And that's what this is, entertainment.

The one thing I can say about Enty is he's a good guy (or girl, depending if you're on that train). He's hooked me up with concert tickets and responds to the emails of his readers. I got one from him last night :)

You have to take this all with a grain of salt, or don't get bothered by the 200+ comments when we decide to have at a blind.

Icecat said...

Well said *girl.

shauna said...

I know very famous defense lawyer's in LA. They are calling this whole site BS.
Thanks for the entertainment. Believe me. I do know what that is. Thanks,girl.

Icecat said...

I'm starting to think Shauna works for "The Guy" :)

Keep on Hating.. We don't CARE!!!

shauna said...

Wrong..I'm MV! Keep on buying. I don't care!

not on my dollar said...

Okay back to the BI at hand, Brandy has never been married. Remember she lied and SAID she got married and later retracted that statement after her ex told everyone about the lie. Good guess but it couldn't be her.

Janet is NOT known for being a good singer but maybe most people would be shocked that she deceived the public again. Remember this is the woman who hid her marriage for nine/ten years. Come to think of it Enty recently made a comment about the hidden marriage and her keeping secrets.


Does anyone have a link to Enty's post about the cancer because I can't find it? Is it S or MV who had cancer and why are we omitting this very important clue?

Icecat said...

I'm not sure where the link is, but it was S who had the breast cancer. I think it is in the comments. Maybe even the first time he posted the BI....
He never said whether S passed from the cancer, so I assume she didn't...

shauna said...

Who's messing with you Shauna??

NOBODY cares what you have to say, and your petty threats mean NOTHING. We are ignoring you - Or at least I am...Good God if you hate this site as much as you say then why on earth are you still here?? You called Enty an "asshole" why would you read an "assholes" blog.

Shoo now.. go on...

HAHA! Ever heard of a joke?? Lighten up! OMG! BTW...i think the twitards know who the FAKE is.

I'll be here all day,sorry.

I never made a petty threat. What in the good damn bad outfit are you talking about ICECAT??
LMAO!

Shannon said...

ok i was totally on the shania train, but i am watching her bio on the biography channel right now and they just showed a clip of her singing "somewhere over the rainbow" in canada before she was discovered and it sounded pretty convincingly like her later stuff. idk i thought it was her for sure but now i'm not so confident... doubt it is britney just because that would not be shocking really.
