Today's MV Clue

No Four For Friday today because it would just end up getting caught up in all of this. The final clue for this anniversary week is MV was born in the United States.

BRITNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

caydian said...

Guess Shania is off the hook.

Quintessential Southerner said...

more than likely britney.

Stephanie said...

It's Britney, bitch.

(Sorry, couldn't resist) :o)

Britney!

I knew it! (:
But I was hoping for Avril...

From Wikipedia: Jennifer Lopez was born and grew up in the South Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican parents Guadalupe Rodríguez, a kindergarten teacher, and David Lopez, a computer specialist.

Anonymous said...

I still think this is JLo, even though she's not known for her singing. It seems like Britney has always been able to sing... since childhood and it's fairly documented.

Amit! said...

Okay, reading over the previous stuff, I don't really know if I see anywhere that it says she went on a WORLD tour - just that she went on tours.

So it's possible that I may have missed something.

But with the sex tape scandal concerning one of her many exes, it could be that there are other secrets about J. Lo that are threatening to come out.

Much like this one.

Lauren said...

JENNIFER LOPEZ WAS BORN IN THE BRONX NEW YORK, BUT IS OF PUERTO RICAN DECENT. NOT FROM PUERTO RICO.

*girl said...

The thing that threw me off JLo was Enty saying "hundreds of concerts". If someone has the time to look it up, I'll get back on that train.

flwrgurl said...

ohkay okay so now its down to j.ho and brit the beesh

*girl said...

And thank you Enty! You're right, we would have ignored a new BI.

VD said...

I totally thought it was Shania. I'm wicked happy actually. Looking at youtube video's I remembered how much I liked Shania.

If the scond album did better than the first that rules out Brit. The touring thing rules out Jlo.

As for WH, if she was going to use help sounding good, she'd be doing that now. If she's not doing it now, I can't see her doing it when she was at her height.

Anonymous said...

This has to be Britney....
All the drama in Oz about her lip syncing and Enty drags this up again from like 3yrs ago??

Coincidence? Not likely!

Denise118 said...

Who's Guy then?

Caroline said...

I don't think it's Britney. Her songs aren't difficult to sing. Oh, whatever I'm sick of guessing.

Anonymous said...

I think it’s Macy Gray

Ignoring the timeline/dates given as a red herring.

Enty doesn’t say that the marriage/separation or divorce or having the kid(s) happened before or after his original post, so we can assume that they could have happened anytime.

She’s been married
She has 3 kids
She got divorced
She’s born in America

She was mentored by a producer/writer, Joe Solo (quite distinctive looking)

Has numerous awards
Has toured the world extensively
She’s done commercials e.g. for Gap and Macdonalds
She’s had more than 3 albums

She admits her drug taking, arrogance and paranoia was the reason behind her split with her record company in 2004. So it’s possible that she was arrogant in dealing with S too.

She was huge/everywhere at one point

It fits the pictures Enty picked for the first MVpost: she started in Jazz clubs, and the concert scene photo could be because she performed some big outdoor events.

If you watch the very few live clips of her on youtube, there are a few where she’s clearly singing over a backing track. Some of her live performances are very poor vs the recorded songs. She had a longish ‘break’, split with her record company over ‘differences’ and is struggling to come back as big again.

Enty doesn’t actually ever say MV is a really bad singer. Even a halfway decent singer could have used a voice double to overcome other problems e.g. concentration/drugs, or just to give a bit of an extra layer of wow.

The only thing that’s not right is that her first album was more successful than the first, but maybe Enty was playing a bit lose with that too. Her second single was much bigger than her first though.

If it was her it would “blow the music industry up and shake it to its very core”

JoElla said...

Well hell..

Sorry gang, but I would not be "blown away" if this was Britney.

Jlo would cause me to stop and say "No Shit??!!??!! really.. " and go about my life.

Janet would make me fall down and yell "GEEEEEEETTTT OOOOOUUUUUUT!"

Whitney would still blow my mind.

Andrew said...

If it is Britney, why would it be so shocking if the news came out? Britney has never been known for her voice and the rumours of lip synching have been around for years. I am thinking it must be someone bigger than Britney and who has been around longer or that "S" is someone who the music world be shocked to learn the identity.

flwrgurl said...

I still think Guy is Larry Rudolph or Benny Medina anyone who works in the bizness if they are described these characters you will narrow it down to either one of these! douches! I'm going to go on the J.lo bus because most of her songwriters are black and heavy girls. FACT!!

Marisa said...

Ent, you know I love you, but this clue sucked.

I'm so demented that I dreamed about this blind last night. DREAMED ABOUT IT.


I hate you today.







OK, I still love you.

Andrew said...

The Macy Gray guess is pretty good. Someone has done some research!

Amit! said...

LOL @Marisa. I had similar things happening to me with the Timmy/Shimmy stuff a few years ago.

lutefisk said...

A few years ago I won tickets to a JLO concert in NYC--they were filming it for promotional purposes--I couldn't go , because they wanted teenage kids to go along, & mine were too little. But, I am sure she had done hundreds of those "concerts" in all major cities to promote her cds.

flwrgurl said...

Yah! good work anonymous on the Macy Gray guess! But what that give us the shock value? um no!

Caroline said...

I think people forget the artist came out around 2001 because this guy who had 'S' do the recordings came to her in LATE 2000, so it wouldn't be a Mariah, Whitney, Madonna or Janet because they were already well established. I thought Nelly Furtado was a good guess.

Lauren said...

His blind makes it sound like she isn't as big anymore. Britney is still releasing tracks. How if the real person singing quit? I'm with Macy Gray

Lauren said...

budford said...

no way it's britney. she sounds the same and CA would have ratted her out a long time ago. She snipes at her constantly and she has a long history knowing exactly what she sounds like.

I still think those youtubes I posted are amazingly close. WH - Star Spangled and AB.

Katie said...

macy gray? really? the only song i know of hers was i try.

RocketQueen said...

This clue sucks for those of us who knew it couldn't be Shania cause we've all heard her sing live. How about an extra clue for those of us who knew it wasn't her, Enty? ;)

Were it not for the "hundreds of tours" (did he really say this?) I would be firmly on the J.Lo train, but I guess I'm going with Britney now. That being said, I agree that this wouldn't be terribly surprising unless what's implied is that there was very little "mixing" at all - it was purely another voice.

silenttype said...

Macy Gay is a big fat nobody in the scheme of things. I have always said Whitney and I have accurately stated in and every blind that has ever been posted.

Adventurous Kate said...

Macy Gray was not huge. She was not in commercials. Her second album was not bigger than her first.

Moving on...

Amit! said...

As much as I like the Macy Gray guess - there was a lot of hype around her when she first premiered - I don't know that it would necessarily be her. She just...doesn't seem big enough.

Then again, neither did Alice Brady, so who knows.

Katie said...

i just don't think it's britney. you can hear her "voice" when she sings. same with JLo. and britney has sang live before on more than one occasion. and grew up in the biz. i don't know.

caralw said...

Gotta agree that this clue is lame, but better than nothing. At least it eliminates Shania.

I'm leaning towards Janet Jackson. That would be shocking. Britney... not so much.

NotSoAnonMom said...

Aw, man! I so thought it was Shania. Well, that was a good thought, anyway.

RocketQueen said...

The problem with Macy Gray is what Katie said (she was never that big) but mostly also that her speaking voice sounds exactly like her singing voice.

Icecat said...

*Jumps off Shania Train*

Oh well. So...we have it nailed down to Brit and JLO...But will we ever find out which one. They both fit, that is if you consider that JLO doing shows here and there touring. I think it counts. I don't know..they both are known to have had help vocally. I guess it just depends on what circles you run with if this would "Shake up the music industry"....I think probably more people (general population) have heard of Brit that might be something to consider..BUT I am leaning more on the JLO guess. Only becuase I do think Brit had pipes at one time. If you watch her as a child she could belt out the notes....

GRRR...So I've never been around for reveals. I read he reveals them on January 1st and July 4th?? Is this right? Would this be something that would even be revealed??

Anonymous said...

Macy Gray guess is great. People did praise her as a singer. At any rate I think it's more in the right direction than Britney.

Caroline said...

Nevermind, it can't be Nelly she's Canadian. I give up.

Amit! said...

I really wish Enty'd eliminate a few more guesses Ted C style the way he did a couple of days ago.

Tricia said...

This is not Macy Gray. Wikipedia says her 2nd album failed as a commercial success - her first album far outsold her 2nd. A hint in the original BI said her 2nd release was bigger than the 2nd.

Majik said...

I'm going with Janet. Or Whitney.

I don't suppose Christina Aguilara could be thrown in? I don't know too much about her...clearly she can sing, and has been singing since she was a kid, but I just wonder. THAT would just blow everyone away.

perplexia said...

Did Macy Gray have a concert album too - that would fit right? She may not be as huge as Brit or Whitney etc, but she was massively critically acclaimed, even when her albums didn't do so well though they still did well abroad. She won Grammys and so on, and has worked with some other big names. I also agree she doesn't sound so good anymore.

Ellen said...

I thought for sure he was going to give a clue to rule out Britney! This keeps pointing toward her, although "anonymous" makes an excellent argument for Macy Gray.

Lisa (original) said...

FLIRT beat me to my exact comment, lols!

West End Girl said...

Wow, I'm flummoxed as to who it is now. Hmm, that's a tricky one.

Have a good weekend all!

Macy Gray was in commercials. It could be her but...I'm thinking J Lo now too.

Tenisha said...

I don't think it's Britney, or Macy, or Shania, or anyone mentioned.

I personally have no clue who it is...but I don't think any of the guesses fit.

Macy Gray has too distinct a voice in person and in her songs for it be her. Britney used to sing live for years as a child...just like Christina Aguilera. She just has to lip sync at concerts now because of her dance moves..etc. Whitney?? Um...no. Janet...no way either. Shania was born in Canada...so it isn't her. We are just all way off I think.

Majik said...

Forget Christina..."the little girl with the big voice" according to wiki.

Amit! said...

I have this, like, super crazy theory, but for it to work....MV would have had to be more than one person, and then there are still way too many things to not have it fit.

I think.

Gah.

Icecat said...

Oh yeah...Thanks for giving us the clue early Enty...Us East Coaster are usually driving home from work at Five :)

And, I still think this needs to be a bigger name then even Macy Gray...

brooklyn040204 said...

i guess i'm officially on the britney bandwagon. it has to be her. this video from the mmc is clearly her singing over someone who i think sounds like christina.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7rlom_mickey-mouse-club-ill-take-you-ther_music

even if it's not christina it's certainly not the britney voice we all know...i don't know, i just think my life would be a whole lot easier if this blind were revealed.

Anonymous said...

It's not Janet! She came out wayyyy before 2001. It's someone who got big around that time.

shelly_bean said...

I think I'm going with Britney or Janet.

why couldn't it be Madonna again?

Quintessential Southerner said...

are cindy drawford and her hubby the answer to the blind item from this year concerning two celeb parents who had not seen their kid for months?

kris said...

quite frankly, WH, Brit or JLO...NONE of these would surprise me...I'm done.

Anonymous said...

There's no proof Janet ever had a child. Enty, said the person has at least one child, so it's someone who we know for sure has a kid.

Kimberly Kay said...

Ok - up to now I've just been gleefully reading the comments and playing along at home - but now I have to make a comment of my own.

MV IS MADONNA. Ok doubters - so her voice is nothing special - early on she was a punk/pop singer...and she was all over MTV in 80s/90s - but her 80s voice sounds very different than it does today. She didn't pull off Evita well - but maybe she wasn't doing the singing...and they were compensating for her terrible voice.

ALSO - check out the pics today. There is a picture of Madonna looking at orphans in Brazil and right below - some random picture of a million dollar car taking a swim. The GUY was talking on his cellphone.

Kids? Check. Divorce? Check x 2. Bitchy? Check check. Born in the USA? Yepper.

It is Madonna. FTW. IMHO. :)

Thanks Enty!

Icecat said...

It still could be Janet. The dates are flubbed. This could have happened 5-10 years before the dates he said...

But would he say has a child if the child is not common knowlegde??

Madonna was NEVER known for her voice. Mostly style and dancing...

Okay - Gotta make the 30 mile trek home...Can't wait to get there and read more comments..hahaha!

Anonymous said...

Its Britney, bish.

klm said...

I've been waiting for this clue all day (on the East coast). I think we just need one more clue and we could figure this out. I'm not really sold on the JLo thing, but I just don't think the Britney thing would be all that shocking (as numerous others have posted here). But I don't really see JLo as that shocking either. Argh.

ash said...

Tricia is right. Plus, Macy Gray is a beautiful woman but not at all manufactured for the stage. She's always had an indy cool, I-could-take-it-or-leave-it vibe. This blind has always seemed to point to a person who clearly had the "it factor" to make her a superstar but not the voice. As anti-climactic as it is now, it would have been a bombshell to find out this was Britney when the blind first appeared in 2006!

Ms Cool said...

I think it is J Lo but would not be surprised if it were Britney.

However, I agree with everyone that neither of those is shocking. Janet wouldn't shock me as she always sounds like a backup singer anyway. Madonna would surprise me and I remember that live version of Dress You Up didn't sound so good (but not unlike her). Now Whitney would shock me.

Anonymous said...

It's Jello- Her second album was bigger than the first.

Britney's first album is still her best seller.

I really thought it was Shania!

breadandroses said...

Madonna!

valerie said...

What about someone from the hip-hop or R and B world? Has Eve ever been married?

Tricia said...

Does anybody have any background info on Fiona Apple? Can't find much about her personal life but she has the 'jazzy' thing going on and was huge when she first came on the scene. Just trying to throw out new guesses..

ashley said...

Just an idea but what about Alicia Keys!

T.R. Slyder said...

Macy Gray doesn't have "the look" to put it politely. I couldn't see her being angry at "her voice" being unattractive.

.robert said...

I'm changing my vote to Madonna.

genesis said...

D'X
I can't take it anymore lol I'm officially on the I give up forever, I'm gonna stop thinking about this because it's stressing me out bandwagon, anyone wanna join?

Cheryl said...

Seven weeks 'til reveal day folks!

Majik said...

Okay, I'm officially fixating....

MV is super famous and has been on many tours. How big would the production be on these tours? I mean, if you're MV and you've got a dozen dancers, plus a set up with a band, etc. wouldn't there be a lot of people who knew the secret? Or are we looking for someone who goes on tour and is just her, or just her and a few back up singers (or maybe just one?). Whitney, I'm looking at you again...

Damn, damn, damn this blind.

pomme said...

Christina is still married
Marcy Gray and Madonna aren't young(under 30:remember the first update they 're under 30)
JLO never made world wide tour
Nelly Furtado is canadian
Janet officially never had child

MV is Britney:Henry Rollins said in an interview the same story about a mix between Britney's voice and Black Woman's voice

AnnMarie said...

I know this isn't a guess, but why didn't "S" know the name of the guy that approached her, paid her and was the one she worked for? I would think that would come up, even if only in the studio when she's recording and working with everyone else....weird. Did everyone in the studio agree not to mention the guy's name, or did he give a fake one to everyone? It sounds VERY difficult to pull this off.
And, until the later part of the story, she WAS able to contact him. How? Under a supposed fake name?
I'll try a guess later. My puzzler hurts.

Funny Girl said...

Oh no. This clue makes me think that the reaveal will be someone really obscure.

Guess I am on team JLO now.

I have to reiterate-- news of Britney faking her vocals would NOT surprise me or any of my friends. (We are all MAJOR Brit fans and concertgoers). However, I do not believe she fakes her voice-- she simply no longer sings live. Also, didn't Britney sing live at her Showtime concert in 2004?

I just don't have it in me to believe that this is her-- she's has been singing publically since she was a little girl. If MV was Brit, why wouldn't they get a better vocalist who could actually sing and not have to digitize her voice?

headrot said...

i definately dont think this is macy gray.

enty made it sound like MV had alot of hits and also implied a voice from jingles.

i cant imagine macy grays voice on any kind of commercial much less one that would have a "jingle".

flwrgurl said...

ayi ya yai my booty is going to get tired from jumping from one wagon to the other! *sigh* now i am still on the britney beesh, jho and idk madonna is sounding rather good too

pomme said...

Fiona Apple or Alicia Keys never was married and has no child

cdanluva said...

My theory is that S is Mooshki, or some other member of this site that Enty loves.

Workshy said...

I said it once, I'mma say it again. I think the person we're looking for here is a man. A "Guy". Prince? OOOOOH what about Michael Jackson? He sounds very different and very feminine on later records! That would be MAHOOSIVElY shocking, although not comparative to the rest of his life I guess. I don't think it's Britney or J.Lo - their singing just sounds too like their speaking voices. Unless some poor person dubs all the chatting too! I think we need to cast the net a little wider people. What about, um...Mary J. Blige? Secret kid? Celine Dion? Secret divorce?

brooklyn040204 said...

omg i hate this blind so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


i just want to know who it is. britney, madonna, and jlo are now on my short list. are you happy, mv?!??! i never understood how politicians could be "flip floppers" until this week.

Lorrawoo said...

I'm really sad about this clue. I have been thinking about this nonstop, trying to comb my brain and wikipedia for random and useless celebrity information. I feel like the air has been let out of my balloon.

Is it to late to get a blind item for the day?

cdanluva said...

I like Workshy's theory. I think Enty's story is true with one or two massive changes to throw us off.

selenakyle said...

Haaaa! Y'all are cracking me up today.

Britney = not shocking to me.
JLo = neither.

But each could have deeper industry ramifications as noted, I suppose.

I can totally see JLo being a total c*nt to some talented but plain-looking "ghost-singer."

Britney I can just see being dull and half-retarded, smacking gum and being immature and unappreciative, therefore rude--but not a total bitch.

Who knows. Who cares. Whatever.

Thanks Enty for three great years of awesome goss. Mwah mwah, kiss kiss!

Now...I call for FFF next Friday with some Sean Bean hiney cheeks or frontal glimpse. How's about it, y'all?

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

Welp, I was wrongz! Let it not be said that I can't admit mistakes....

Anonymous said...

I doubt it's Fiona. You can find lots of live performances of hers (there's a great one of "Get Him Back" on Craig Ferguson), and if anything, her live singing voice now sounds better than her recorded voice on Tidal.

I really have no clue who it would be. At this point, my vote goes to "She who doesn't exist, but makes for a great urban legend"

Quintessential Southerner said...

if this is britney, maybe the shock value comes from the scope of this scam in the music biz that has never occurred before.

britney is international, has that blond girl next door look going on pre-breakdown, and has garnered multi-millions. milli vanilli never got as big as her.

Lil said...

Does anyone know anything about Whitney's early career? Was her 2nd album bigger than her 1st? For it to be someone shocking, to me it seems it would have to be someone known for their big voice, like Whitney, Mariah, etc.

Enty, this is not a clue worthy of my birthday. Did you not get my Facebook message begging for a really good clue? :-)

rose said...

I can't get behind Britney. If it's Britney and you're the lawyer you probably wouldn't make a post about it and clear everyone but Britney. Also Britney is fun but she is not a good singer. Nobody would be shocked if she was caught having another singer and her voice sounds too much like her voice.

I think most likely the dates are off because Enty doesn't want his ass sued which is why it's not Britney and the dates are off and is a bigger name than her.

As for the Fiona guess, she played a venue I worked several years ago. She only ate Campbell's Split Pea Soup--but the vocals were definitely hers.

sunnyside1213 said...

@ selenakyle - rent Lady Chatterley's Lover. You will see all the Bean's stuff.

Now I think I will change my vote to JLo. Just because it would surprise me and Britney, not so much.

Gemini850 said...

Madonna are Janet

Tricia said...

Not sure if this means anything, but Enty mentions he has a signed GOLD record from MV and S. This may eliminate some of the more popular guesses because I'm guessing Britney has gone platinum for all of her records?

Harriet Hellfire said...

For those of you who are waiting for reveal day....I am too, but I can assure you, this blind will NOT be revealed...*L*

Anonymous said...

Ok, while this blind is really annoying, I am at a loss. I am not on the Britney or JLo trains, and sorry, but there is no way MV is Macy Gray or Alicia Keys.
When I first read the blind, my initial suspect was Whitney. I haven't done any research to prove this right or wrong, but that is who came to mind.
There really aren't many females in the music industry that would shock us except (IMO) Whitney, Mariah, Madonna, and Janet. I don't think it's anyone in country. It just HAS to be someone really big, or else who really cares if they fake sing or not.
ARHHHH I hate this.

Ice Angel said...

OK..this cannot be Britney. Ent has repeatedly talked about how nice she is. Not her.

Anonymous said...

Ummm... NOT BRITNEY. Her second album did NOT do better than her first. If that's a requirement, we need to keep looking:

Baby one more time... As of July 2009, the album has sold 10,534,000 copies in the U.S.
Oops!...I Did It Again - As of July 2009, the album has sold 9,184,000

West End Girl said...

Brooklyn040204 - that clip's disturbing...yikes.

selenakyle said...

Oh sunnyside, I did, I did. Several times, AND made a bootleg copy of it (don't tell).

TheGoldenSockPuppet said...

If I find out it's Whitney, I will LITERALLY shit my pants. And you don't want to be around when that happens.

annie cat said...

Throw us another bone, Enty!
Happy blog-versary!!

desertdweller said...

jumping off the shania train and on to the JLo train

I don't think its Brit because:

- I can't see her being bitchy to S
- Her second CD didn't do better than the first
- Enty has spoken highly of her before

I do think its JLo because:
- as Not on my dollar put it...she has a skank attitude
- she has no history of singing before she released On the 6. In fact, she admits she can't sing in a previous interview for Selena

Who would "Guy" be? I can't see it being PDiddy because S would have to have been living in a cave to not know who he was.

Majik said...

Not Madonna....voice is hers, she's sung a capella enough times and never really went away.

caralw said...

Gold record could refer to a single.

Sis said...

We all know that Britney, Madonna, and JLo cannot sing that well, I do not think that should be the focus of this blind. What does matter is the money, publicity, and promotional machine behind this "singer" and the fakery behind it, what started it, and who is behind it, that is the blind.

My vote is for Madonna. It would turn the music industry upside down just because of the deception, the money spent and again of the fakery behind it all, her millions all based on a half-truth. The same could be said for Britney and JLo and a few others.

The other big clue for me is S, the real singer, and why MV was shocked and why she treated her so rudely. Is she a black woman, Asian, handicapped, a woman in a wheelchair, blind, or what?

On another note, EL, how about another old Hollywood blind?

Tricia said...

carlw - you're right, record usually refers to a single so this person would have had to had at least one gold single. that definitely opens it up again.

desertdweller said...

Another reason I don't think its Madonna or Britney is why pay someone to sound that bad? S is a good singer and although I wouldn't say JLo has the chops of MC or CA, the voice we heard was something I could see doing alot of commercial work.

@Marissa - I had dreams about this all Wednesday too!!

VD said...

Oooooooh another old hollywood blind would be awesome.

christine8car said...

Yeah, South Bronx, New Jersey it is then!!!

But, I have to ask, who says the dates were fudged, by Enty?? I didn't see this anywhere so if I missed that, someone cut and paste EL's exact words on that pls.

Also... WHERE does Enty say MV was a heavy tourer? He said "MV is going on tour" sometime around 2001. How do we get from there to MV being a heavy tourer? He references ONE tour..he also said MV did "hundreds of concerts all over the world". JLo did (watch them on youtube if you don't believe it).

I think it's key that he eliminated Shania....that only leaves....

Quintessential Southerner said...

i would not find it hard to believe if britney has a different personality behind closed doors. she is without a doubt manufactured to the hilt.

Anonymous said...

I think it's JLo. I'm thinking about that song she wrote about Sean Combs (can't remember title).

desertdweller said...

@Christine - "This involved literally millions of CD's and hundreds of concerts all over the world"

I think this is what everyone is referring too.

Did some research, y'all. And it's good.

Whitney, Christina, Janet, Britney, Macy Gray, Alicia Keys -- ALL OF THEM -- 1st albums sold more than the 2nd. Two who had 2nd albums bigger than the 1st? Madonna (Madonna 5x platinum, Like a Virgin 10x platinum) and Jennifer Lopez (On the 6 triple platinum, JLo quadruple platinum).

Quintessential Southerner said...

okay, so we know madonna and jlo do not 'seem' to be liked by enty.

Andrew said...

If it all depended on who would be bitchy to "S" then I can see it be either Madonna,JLo,Whitney or Janet. Any one of those four can be major divas and could throw major attitude if they wanted to. For it to be truly shocking to the public and music industry it would have to be someone big and of the four, only Madonna,Whitney and Janet fits.

Shannon said...

could this singer be a part of a group/band? and EL couldn't say because it could be narrowed down that way?

Given that this is one BI that for stated reasons can't get revealed (i.e. because Enty was the lawyer who handled the case, and there is such a thing as lawyer/client privlege - his license would be revoked if he did); I have to say it can't be Britney because she was a Mouseketeer - and the Rat is not one to bother with a kid who can't sing. There are waaaaaaay too many others who'd fill those ears.
JLo? I'm leaning in that direction.
Has anyone ever really do anything other than a)cause a stir because of what she's wearing/not wearing? b) please name the last time she's toured? Her major claim to fame has been the movie career she so desperately wants.
Whitney? Has been. Once upon a time a phenomenal voice, but now due to the drug use, no way. If this were something from the last year or two, I'd be way more inclined to think her, however since she's been off the radar musically for so long, IMHO, not her.

Ice Angel said...

Could this be Vanessa L. Williams???

Anonymous said...

It's JLo.

The guy is Cory Rooney, the exec producer/songwriter on the album "J.Lo".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cory_Rooney
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J.Lo_%28album%29

According to the first blind, the album probably dropped in early 2001 (S was first contacted in "late 2000" and then several months after recording, heard the song on the radio). J.Lo was released January 23rd.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001_in_music

February 1 - Jennifer Lopez becomes first female and artist to have both a number one album J.Lo and a number one movie The Wedding Planner in the same week.


It's the only one that fits all the clues. There's too much focus on the singer and not enough on who the songwriter is. The guy has to have written/produced most if not all of the tracks on the same album for the blind to fit.

blog hopper said...

Don't you think if it was Britney fewer people would be guessing her?

I think it's someone so shocking that hardly anyone has guessed her. I like the Whitney guess.

Ice Angel said...

Vanessa L. Williams has 3 kids. She has been married and divorced.
Her 2nd album was bigger than the first.
She is no stranger to "escandalo!"
Born in the USofA.

Joel Whitburn book says Vanessa did Broadway. That would be impossible to pull off.

Tricia said...

I'm looking on the RIAA Searchable Database. Here are the GOLD records/singles for a few years

2001:
- Mariah Carey
- Madonnna
- Britney Spears
- Leann Rimes
- Leeann Womack

2002:
Kelly Clarkson

2003:
Celine Dione
Whitney Houston
Avril Lavigne
Pink

These lists seem pretty small so i'm not sure how extensive this database is.

christine8car said...

It's a good point to ask who 'Guy' would be... someone, more than one person, posted Benny Medina, as they thought he would be recognizeable by Enty from S's description. I didn't know anything about him so I looked him up.... he managed JLO til 2003.... and guess what, coincidentally has re-established his relationship with JLO now (maybe she didn't have a choice, maybe he knows too much? hehe). Research shows: 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. Benny was ranked #42 in Out Magazines' 50 most powerful people in 2008.

So I guess if he's part of this, that'd really blow for the industry,wouldn't it?

Thanks, desert dweller, but to me hundreds of concerts all over the world does not say MV headlined tours. Ah, the touring issue rears again...blind items are semantics, after all...I think JLo isn't eliminated on that particular bit...in fact, she has been in a LOT of concerts.

AnnMarie said...

@ Christine8car:

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2006

OK..wow..so many comments yesterday and I know everyone is dying for a clue..but a couple things need to be said..This really happened just as I said it did..However, there was also a settlement agreement that was confidential which I cannot violate as well...THEREFORE, I have taken certain precautions such as using the year 2000 as a starting point..In addition, I am very vague when I use times such as several weeks or months....It would not be fair to S or the other parties involved or ethical to be any more specific in this situation..

In my other stories, there is less blindness and the persons can be guessed with some degree of accuracy..

Cecilia00 said...

No idea who this is, but what I *do* know is - I'll be watching the photos and Entys comments with the singers very, VERY closely!

AnnMarie said...

@ Workshy: great minds, lol...I didn't realize you had put that out there!

Niobe said...

I was just reading through the original BI and one of the commenters stated that they thought this whole thing could've happened in the 90's not in 2000. If so, that certainly opens a ton of doors. And could make someone like Mariah plausible.

I can't help but feel like we are all overlooking someone. This is such a juicy BI!

Lady Metal said...

It's not Madonna! Madonna always had a shitty voice, if you compair to people who can really sing. Plus she is around waaaaaaaaaay before around 2000! Enty said in an early BI "I have taken certain precautions such as using the year 2000 as a starting point..In addition, I am very vague when I use times such as several weeks or months....". Not years or decades!!!!!!!! Either J.Lo or Britney!

RocketQueen said...

Niobe - Mariah has no children.

budford said...

Amazing clip, but she does seem to lack the power in parts, not the voice.

blog hopper said...

I love the Madonna idea also. THAT would shock me.

Anonymous said...

How "final" is this final clue? I really wanted to say "WEAK!!" This still leaves too many right?

christine8car said...

No where does EL say the reveal would be shocking to the public (us).. he does say "Let me preface this post, by saying that if this story ever comes out, it would blow the music world up and shake it to its core".

I checked out Cory Rooney (and gee, he's connected to Tommy Mottola, he was named Senior VP of Sony Music Entertainment in 1998).. when you add that to Benny Medina, PDiddy, Murder Inc....that's a lot of heavy hitters that could be blown sky high by a JLo reveal. It wasn't 'us' that EL said would be shaken to the core, it was "The Industry". Still can't turn around on JLo....

budford said...

Guy O is too young.

Kingrey said...

Ice Angel, you brought up another interesting guess. EL did admit that he fudged the dates. Perhaps we need to go some years before 2000. I am sure this is not Britney. All that Cathy Dennis clip proves is that her voice was used to mix with Britney's in Toxic. Believe me, nothing unusual. I am as sure as the fact that I'm 5'11'' with hazel eyes and with 12 EE shoes.
Anyway, I think it's someone who is not currently touring or making music. Like a Vanessa L. Williams, or Janet Jackson. We are looking a lot at pop singers. How about R & B? I think my brain is going to explode. lol

desertdweller said...

@Christina - you've convinced me the tour thing is too vague and just semantics. To be honest, that and the number studio albums were the only things pushing me towards Shania until todays clue. I really don't think this is Brit or Vadge - who would pay good money to sound that bad???

Nope - officially on train JLo now until a case for someone even better gets presented.

Anonymous said...

Adding to my previous comment (re: J.Lo and Cory Rooney):

1) Cory Rooney also exec produced JLo's followup albums:
- 2002's J to tha L-O!: The Remixes
- 2002's This Is Me... Then
- 2005's Rebirth

However, after that, they seem to have cut ties.

And two more points that have more gossip than fact, but take them as you will:

2) A session singer friend of mine dated a songwriter (not Cory) who happened to cowrite a hit for "J.Lo". She sang on another one of his so-called demos and ended up on another artist's album. My point? It's not an uncommon practice in the industry.

3) A good friend of mine used to work for Benny Medina. Everyone fires him, probably after seeing that he spends all their money on coke, but somehow he manages to hang around. That said, he wouldn't be the guy in this case because he's on the artist's side, not the music production side.

It's J.Lo. Everyone can stop guessing now.

Kingrey said...

Anyone whose singing voice is considerably different from their speaking voice?

Anonymous said...

i'm with christine8car. i think we should look for someone with music business creds, who would rock the music industry, not necessarily an A-lister.

i was going to go for anita baker, as everything else fits, but she can really sing.

maybe a country singer??

desertdweller said...

"Everyone fires him, probably after seeing that he spends all their money on coke, but somehow he manages to hang around." - so it can't be him cuz the Guy in this BI stayed under budget.

"That said, he wouldn't be the guy in this case because he's on the artist's side, not the music production side." - I'm pretty clueless to how the industry works. What does this mean?

ny emerald said...

@Marisa- Two days ago, I had a dream about it and woke up thinking about it!!!!! Crazy!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Lots of cogent arguments for various people here, I give you all credit for your passion and research.

That said, my guess is JLo.

She was a Fly Girl (dancer) who got her big break by getting cast as Selena (a singer) and built a career on it. If the vocals were faked, mixed, blended, or otherwise fraud, it means her entire career was built entirely on smoke and mirrors. Which I totally think it was.

Also, she would be bitchy enough to be offended that her "voice ghost" wasn't some supermodel. That little detail keeps sticking with me.

Anyway, my 2 cents.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Kingrey said...

Glitter Mimi's is, but no kids.

One reason I don't think it's Madonna is because I think her speaking voice/singing voice correspond to one another.

desertdweller said...

@Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors - I totally agree. Plus, I think she's such a narcissist that having to be in a room with the REAL talent and having Enty know about it surely pissed her and bruised her ego. Instead of being humble and professional she was a snot about it.

@desertdweller -

Benny Medina is an artist's manager. He manages a performer's career and is not directly involved in the production of their records. Which is why the guy has to be on the record production side of the business.

christine8car said...

thanks, AnnMarie! I would interpret that to mean EL is covering his butt by introducing 'vagueness'...but I don't take that to mean he threw things off by years or anything like that.

yep, desertdweller, this just doesn't go anywhere else but JLo for me... unless someone else can come up with someone who had cd's in quick succession like that (Britney's eliminated..2nd album people)...

Unless this is someone from the r&b world, which I hope people would do their homework first before throwing names out, we're already frustrated by this (well, actually I'm not...I think it's pegged)

Anonymous said...

Does anyone remember the concert that JLO aired on television. A lot of people just tuned in to see if she could pull it off. I remember the big rumor going around during that time was she couldn't sing at all and the concert was a big deal for her.

I think it's JLO.

Cindy said...

Sara Bellum said...

With their weak voices, I just don't see Britney or JLo would bring down the house, as Enty said. I think it has to be someone who is known for their huge voice like a Whitney or a Mariah, or a major musical family, like Janet.

Mariah is out because the person has a child. Plus she always spontaneously sings her lyrics into everyday conversation. Janet is so sneaky, you don't know if she has a child. I'm still going for Whitney. Her voice sounds different now. It's still lovely, but it's not quite the same.

Will we ever figure this out?

Anonymous said...

Its not Whitney. I saw her singing a live show in the 80's. It was intimate and she was throwing out gospel at the top of her lungs. She is definitely a legit singer.

Thisisridiculous said...

I dunno he says that MV was born in the U.S. not that she's a American. Shania is known to be a liar are we certain she was born in Canada?...plus I know this isn't something to go by, but the pictures Enty used on the revisited blog were Canadian prints...hmmm. I know this won't be reveal whether real or not it is fun to guess :)

budford said...

Ashanti is not plain jane or anonymous.

Tricia said...

I agree with all the JLO guesses. If you look at her wikipedia page, it documents that she was first interested in dancing and acting and then singing came after a few movies 'Selena' and 'Out of Site'. Her 2nd album did better than her first and many articles state her live shows were all pre-taped. I think it WOULD rock the industry because of her relationship with p.diddy along with others.

christine8car said...

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors, desertdweller..yes!!
and Tricia, what can I say? Look at the date of that post! Unreal. There it is folks...

gigi said...

I'm sorry if this was brought up already. I just read the first 40 or so and have to leave work in a bit but Macy Gray? Really? You think there will ever be a situation where she is the "looks" and someone else is "the voice".

If Macy Gray was anything in this blind, it would be S., not MV.

Anonymous said...

Faith Hill?

She is/was a great singer, and only used the vocal double after she didn't recover well from surgery on her vocal cords just before her second album (that would explain why they needed someone at the last minute to sing for her and the album was 'ready to go' when S stepped in).

Divorced from Dan Hill, 3 kids with TG, american born, been in commercials e.g. for Pepsi, awards, tours, gold records, 2nd album bigger than first, steady stream of albums. Dates wrong, but going with the idea EL is throwing us off the scent.

Scott Hendricks as the producer (he started out as a writer), and as CEO of capital Records and later working for Virgin, he is high profile in the biz - would be a shock if he was involved in something like this.

TinselSass said...

While I 85% vote for JLo (as she was Tommy Mottola's revenge move for Mariah divorcing him), one more thought before dismissing Whitney...

Anyone else think Whitney may have turned to drugs in response to living a fake life? Imagine that pressure of knowing you are a fraud?!?

ny emerald said...

@Tricia - good find! Ja Rule is in the photos today, too. Hmm, interesting.

Anonymous said...

Look at the link Tricia posted! It says it right there in the title. It makes sense because when we first heard of MV, JLo was huge then.

Here's the link again for anybody that needs it:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,29257,00.html

Thanks again Tricia!

Anonymous said...

I also agree it's someone with a huge voice. Someone that can sing acapella. Someone who's been asked to sing the National Anthem at a sporting event, someone who could kill a solo with a gospel choir. Otherwise, why have a background singer who obviously has the chops to be a star and not the looks to put the vocals to someone who can't sing their way out of a paperbag like Britney, JLo and sorry Janet, you are not a singer.

It would rock the music industry to find out that someone was actually doing the tracks for Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Mary J, Alicia Keys, Mariah, Christina A, Jennifer Hudson.

Why are so many people guessing folks that noone other than a sorority girl at a cheesy party school would think were great singers. Janet Jackson comes from a huge musical family, but a great singer she ain't and will never be.

Tricia said...

Thanks guys! But I'm still wondering if we are missing something. I just noticed in the original BI that Enty tagged 'Guy' so Guy has to be a real clue like people were suggesting before. Does 'Guy' match to J.Lo in anyway?

I need to go home!

I am so obsessed with this now, my computer crashed and I am on my way to buy a new one so I can check this all weekend.

I think Tricia's link just solved this blind.

J to the LO.

Enty's clue satisfied me. I've come to the conclusion it's JLO. Case closed, mystery solved.

Now every time Enty posts her picture I'm going to look for hidden meanings in the captions. LOL!

Kingrey said...

Anon @ 3:57, Amen! This definitely has to be someone thought to have tremendous talent. Maybe I should call Walter Mercado. Frustrating!

desertdweller said...

Who has the songwriting credits on JLo's early albums?

Anonymous said...

Everytime someone suggests JLo, I want to scream. She is an actress who put out an album. Period. If she faked it, it would hardly shake the music biz to the core. As for Britney, how could any decent backup singer as 'S' evidently is, recognize her voice in those computerized pop productions that sound like they were sung by a 12 year old? Not Britney. CA has demonstrated live many times that she is the real thing. That leaves Whitney....IF SHE IS A FAKE THAT WOULD BE HUGE...

desertdweller said...

And I also don't think we need to overthink this in regards to this person being tremendously talented like a WH, MC or CA. Yes, I do think the voice has to be good so Britney and Madonna don't make sense because S wouldn't have a successful career singing if she sounded like that.

I think we need to focus on the statement in the first paragraph that states this would shake the INDUSTRY to its core. Alot of people would have tainted careers. The label, the record company, the songwriter, the producers, hell the person who mixed the music on the tracks S put out. I don't think MV would be the one who paid the biggest price here, although her singing career would be over if it already isn't.

genesis said...

lol@ walter mercado, that fruit

AnnMarie said...

MICHAEL JACKSON, starting with his first solo album, after his voice changed. Crazy, but here's some reasoning:

--His voice changed and it wasn't going to sell, or Joe was afraid it wouldn't, so he approaches this woman.
--I've heard occasions of people meeting Michael and being surprised at how deep his voice actually was.
--I can't imagine anyone else for whom this reveal would "blow up the music business and shake it to its core."
--I have no problem thinking Enty gave a phony timeline and changed the sex so he could never be considered liable for this leaking.
--He was married, divorced, has at least one child, was born in the U.S., and somewhere in the blinds MV was considering a revealing interview. Maybe the Martin Bashir interview?

Again, I know this is crazy, but the whole thing is!!

desertdweller said...

Anon @ 4:09 - JLo put out 4 studio albums of original material - all within a few years of each other before 2006 when this BI came out.

okay damn it I'm on the Britney crazy train her voice is sooo different back in her early career than what we hear now...I know I know her smoking and all that but it can't change THAT much can it? it sounds like a totally different voice/person.

Allison said...

As a life-long Madonna fan I must bring up a couple of things that occured to me as a kid. These may or may not be related to this blind item that has me oh so totally intrigued. But anyhoo...one is this song right here:

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

When I was a kid I could not afford to buy all of the cassette tapes of my favorite artists. I used to spend lots of time recording songs of the radio that were made from my fave perfomers and would make my own greatest hits tapes, if you will. That song above, I clearly remember being introduced by various deejays with Madonna as the artist. It was not until this year as a matter of fact that I found out it was actually not Madonna that recorded this song, but an artist named Regina.

Point #2, as I mentioned earlier, I was a HUGE Madonna fan. And as I got older started getting an allowance. One of the first things I bought with this allowance was Madonna's The Immaculate Collection tape. Even though I had recorded all of her "Greatest Hits" this tape had two brand new songs. These songs were "Justify My Love" and "Rescue Me".

As I listened to both these songs I remember thinking to myself how both songs were more spoken than singing which struck me as kinda odd. And with "Rescue Me" in paticular, her singing voice (to me anyways) just sounded really different than all the other songs she had previously made.

I replayed "Rescue Me" over and over again, and then would play "True Blue", "Like a Virgin" and others to compare. And the voices did sound similar but different somehow. I played these songs for my mom and told her my theory and my mom said it had been many years between the release of the songs and that someone like Madonna would never let little girls who were such huge fans like me down like that.

Allison said...

Oh I what my mom meant by many years between the release of the songs was that Madonna's voice probably had matured and had gotten stronger which is what made the earlier stuff sound different from that song released in '91.


With all that said, I would not be surprised if MV was in fact Madonna.

And if it were, my childhood idol was a complete fake.

christine8car said...

@Tricia.... there is a JLO connection to a 'Guy'... Guy Harding has credit for Jennifer Lopez's 'Jennifer Lopez in Concert (2001)'. Apparently he's an editor...

NotOprah said...

Crazy thought -- what about Lauren Hill? She has a kid and is divorced. She went a bit nutso after her solo album (which did better than her first with the Fugees) and apparently everyone says she can no longer sing ...
