Blind Items Revealed

June 20, 2012

This controversial singer was thisclose to A list two years ago because of a couple of big hits and talked about awards show appearance. Now? Being controversial used to be cute, but now it turns people off. She is also not a fun person to work for or be with or hang out with and if you do, you do so at your own peril. Two people who worked under her attempted suicide. She dumped her baby (who she never sees) daddy via twitter so she could date someone else.

She accused a former employee of leaking tracks. He didn't and someone was discovered later to have done it. Prior to the discovery of the other person though, the singer blacklisted the man, told everyone to stay away from him and that she would not work with anyone who worked with him. She also had him followed everyday to see if he was responsible. She had him harassed to the point where he got hooked on drugs and has never been the same since. She never apologized when they discovered the real person who had leaked the tracks.

I remember someone guessed this out of the gate. Great going, guys. Someone may have even posted a link? (Too lazy to look it up).

Lissette said...

Actually, it was @Scooper76. Congrats!

Vicki Cupper said...

That poor guy. What a cunt.

timebob said...

MIA is one kooky bitch, when you get slapped down by Madonna you know you're a tool.

Gtzisshe said...

I thought for a second that she dumped her baby. I was like, daaaamn. Then I read the rest.

Arm70 said...

Now that we got all these reveals since the 4th, I'm realizing a lot of people guessed them successfully. I wonder if we'll ever get those about the teenage actresses getting used and abused.

Lissette said...

I am curious, though. I didn't see a pic of MIA in the random photos. Did I miss it?

RenoBlondee said...

Looks like someone almost always guesses these right. Good job guys!
And thanks Enty!

If this is true (M.I.A. could blacklist, harrass and destroy as pretty much a sole entity) imagine what CO$ has at their disposal to try to thwart those that want to leave.

Turkish Taffy said...

I guessed MIA. Too bad, I think she is very talented and has a story to tell. Sorry to hear that she is a jerk.

FS said...

I think the last set of reveals kind of proved that photos aren't really a clue after all.

Another Josh said...

I used to like her, but I can't anymore. She's Sheryl Crow Part II.

annabella said...

I disagree, FS, the photos are often a very huge clue. sometimes they are posted the same day, sometimes the day before or after, or at least w/in days.

that doesn't mean that there is always a photo, but very often.

yes, MIA is supposed to be so hip and subversive. but I recently saw a photo of her at fashion week in paris. it seems that she is just another entitled diva when it comes to her way of life.

it took forever said...

Wow imagine what she would do if she gets really FAMOUS

angel said...

@FS, it seems that at times they are, and at times they aren't, because they have shown up enough times relative to a Blind for it to be more than mere coincidence. I think the trick is deciding which are and which aren't, and good luck with that, lol

MIA is setting herself up for some serious Karma.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

no...she did dump the baby. his mom is raising him with the father.

Jazzy said...

@ Another Josh - what's the story about Sheryl Crow?

RE: Random Photos

I wasn't here all day for the reveals, and haven't been able to read all the comments, but wasn't someone going back and checking to see if the answers were in the Random Photos? Was it Vicki? And weren't the answers, for the most part, NOT in the random photos? I know we've had a lot of discussion as to whether or not the RPs hold clues. Whoever was checking, can you tell me what you found?

Another Josh said...

@Jazzy This is from www.mtv.com/music/artist/crow_sheryl/artist.jhtml#biographyEnd

Unfortunately, success came at a price. In 1994, Crow had been invited to perform "Leaving Las Vegas" on Late Night with David Letterman. In a brief interview segment, Letterman asked if the song was autobiographical, and Crow offhandedly agreed that it was. In actuality, the song was mostly written by David Baerwald, based on the book by his good friend John O'Brien (which had also inspired the film). Having been burned by the industry already, some of the Tuesday Night Music Club took Crow's comment as a refusal to give proper credit for their contributions. Baerwald in particular felt betrayed, and things only got worse when O'Brien committed suicide not long after Crow's Letterman appearance. Although O'Brien's family stepped forward to affirm that Crow had nothing to do with the tragedy, the rift with Baerwald was already irreparable. Some Club members bitterly charged that Crow's role in the collaborative process was rather small, and that the talent on display actually had little to do with her. Tragedy struck again in 1996 when Crow's ex-boyfriend, Kevin Gilbert, was found dead of autoerotic asphyxiation.

Oh yeah, the girl who lives in Brentwood because she's too poor to live anywhere else. It's heartwarming that this is the first I've heard of that skankbag since her weird middle-finger thing with Madonna. Next!

Live fast, die young...bad girls do it well.

Cuckoo Armadillo said...

@Tempestuous Grape - "Fandaaaango? Hobo Camp? Hobo-Hobo Camp!" Love SWC.

AKM said...

@ Tempestuous Grap and Cuckoo Armadillo - Me too! "It must be nice to hope for the thing you wish to want." Ah, Jerri! :-)

Kimberly said...

Completely off topic, but i was talking with a freind who worked with the disabled... And We.were discussing mean and nasty angry people because they were disabled... And she brought up the point nasty rude mean people are born that way....life does not make them that way.
There.fore MIA was probably cruel and rude and hurtfull

Kimberly said...

Pre money and sucess

jgirl828 said...

Diplo used to date her, and he didn't have anything bad to say about her (personally) in his recent Rolling Stone profile.

Mooshki said...

She may be a rotten person, but the Bad Girls video is one of my all-time favorites.

Frankie said...

Diplo actually HATES her... and I know exactly who the accused was, her former engineer.

His girlfriend at the time lost a baby due to the stress and they both haven't been the same. She scum, everyone knows.

WUWT? said...

EmEyeKay, I believe it was anita_mark going back and looking at random photos during the reveals. Sometimes she found them, sometimes she didn't, and sometimes there were "tricky" connections, like a pic of Madonna on a day the blind was about Sean Penn. So perhaps the photos are "random" like their name says. Or maybe there's always a certain number of clues (like the Madonna pic would have been) and we just need to "crack the code."

lzahart said...

late to the party but FTR i guessed MIA vehemently

i still think she is an AMAZING artist, truly, but also clearly a horrible person!
