Blind Item #3

This former one hit wonder from the early 90's with some weird punctuation in her name has now been reduced to working as a street hooker. Everytime she is arrested for prostitution she brings up her hit song and thinks it will get her off or that someone will be impressed.

Des'ree?

auntliddy said...

Sad!!! She must be an addict too. Hope she gets help !

annanaannnaaaa said...

same guess as KLM.

laura ramona said...

Pity it's Des'ree . what happened to her during all these years. Happy thanksgiving Enty and all the yanks, from Europe

supapimp said...

Damn shame. Happy thanksgiving!

Mari said...

Yep, I think KLM is right on, sadly. What a shame.

OT Happy Thanksgiving to Americans! Especially Supapimp who I'm thankful for, the happiness is bouncing off the site from you! :))

dia papaya said...

The "you gotta be" lady? Really? My power anthem song?

NO! Really?

Megan said...

Nooo! I hope it's not Des'ree, just Googled her and not much (new) came up, though she seems pretty down to Earth in interviews. But wait, is she a one hit wonder? She had a few songs out other than Gotta Be, right?

SusieLongBottom said...

No! "You gotta be" was one of my anthems too!

Sherry said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans and a big thanks to all the others who make this site so damn marvelous from French Girl and the saucy folks from OZ. And we have folks from South America too right?

Can I hijack a thread and have everyone do an identification of their location? Anyone want to join in?

Belmont, CA US

I googled "one hit wonders from the 90's" and the other name that comes up that has "weird punctuation" is A'me Lorain (song: "Whole Wide World" from True Love). I don't remember the song, but there you go.

Philadelphia, PA (suburban area, but close enough)..........;-)

TSAP said...

It's not Des'Ree. She had 2 platinum albums, she has a current website and does studio work up in Canada.

Des'Ree wasn't a One Hit Wonder.

Checked out http://www.onehitwondercentral.com/90s.cfm

A'Me Lorain (Whole Wide World)
K.P.& Envyi (Swing My Way) K.P. maybe?

I don't consider either of those really popular enough to use it

I'm in Rochester MN for the holiday but most of the time I'm posting from Dallas TX! Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!

EmEyeKay said...

Hi @Sher! Happy Thanksgiving back to you and everyone else. Sherry knows this already, I'm in Seattle, Washington. And I'm drinking coffee RIGHT THIS VERY MOMENT :)

Seachica said...

Seattle, WA here. Though technically, my current location is in the sky somewhere above Colorado

Hazeldazel said...

Valleyfield, Quebec is where I live. I'm from Scarborough, though.

Happy thanksgiving, all!

I almost got a serious case of the sads thinking it was Des'Ree.

Hollywood, Ca.

fancyscreenname said...

@Erin... well howdy! (Waves)

betty boo said...

Waterford, Ireland Happy Thanksgiving.

Christina Garza said...

San Antonio, Tejas ;) happy thanksgiving!

supapimp said...

Thx you. Have a safe happy thanksgiving. :)

E Gee Be said...

Thankful it is not des'ree, and happy thanksgiving to all of you, from Alameda, CA!

Rain said...

Robin S. (I always found it weird that she just didn't go by Robin Stone) - "Show Me Love". Wiki says she had 3 dance hits, but digging in, it looks like they are remixes of the same song. She lives in Georgia now, and there is an online petition to convince some record company to bring her back, which sounds to me like she's hit hard times.

Redd said...

Southern West Virginia!

smash said...

Happy thanksgiving all!!

For some reason I thought Lil' Kim.

Seattle, WA also drinking my latte! :)

G said...

Wasn't there M'chele D something ...

G said...

Me'Shell Ndegéocello

Was it early 90's?

Mame Dennis said...

Me'Shell Ndegéocello is still recording and influential in that genre of music.

Sherry said...

YAy guys! Keep 'em coming. Waves to Em.

SusanB said...

West Palm Beach, Florida here! And it's depresslingly warm.

Profetissan said...

No guess, but representing Scandinavia from Stockholm, Sweden. :)

All about Eve said...

No idea but also glad is not Des're.

Happy Thanksgiving to all from New York City! (I heard myself saying this like a beauty pageant contestant...lol)

CarmeliteLady said...

Carmel California, and it's a balmy 68 or so!
So sad that this singer has gone in this direction with her life. Can't she get regular work? The only reason for someone to turn to this profession is because they have a drug problem. It's the only way to feed a very expensive habit, she could always work as a waitress or something if she's willing to make normal people wages.

EmEyeKay said...

This post reminds me... I haven't noticed @nolachickee here lately... anyone know if she's okay?

*waves back to Sher*

@dia: Celebrating on Saturday, quick trip down then. No time for VooDoo :(

Very cool to hear where everyone's from!

Freckles said...

Dublin ireland, happy thanksgiving to all x

Anneliesse said...

M'shelle Ndegeocello & M' chelle where two diff ppl. M'chelle had that annoying nasal voice when she spoke. Shes my guess.

supapimp said...

She still tours tho'. Happy thanksgiving

supapimp said...

San Francisco, CA. Happy thanksgiving

hollywood dime said...

Not me'shelle. She and dr dre have a child together and she living pretty good off those child support checks.

Chris said...

Michel'le but doesn't she have kids by Dr. Dre AND Suge Knight? Would she need to hook?

G said...

The only song that I know of by Des'ree is You gotta Be and that was released in 1994. I'm going with her for this one. I can't think of any big hits by the other weird punctuation names. Is she touring full time? Maybe hooks part-time?

ThatKimGirl said...

Happy thanksgiving ya'll from Southern California...(Los Angeles)

Snit said...

No idea but happy thanksgiving from the Northern Bay area of California!

Mari said...

Scarborough, Top of the Food Chain!

Anneliesse said...

Wow Michel'le does have kids by Dre & Sug Knight! Girl gets around! Couldn't find any info on her touring still. This may or may not be her. Now I have her song stuck in my head(doo dee doo doo dee doo)

Maja. With a J. said...

Hej hej Profetissan!

Unknown said...

T'pau

trouble bubble said...

Des'ree also had that "Life, oh life. Oh, life. Doo doot doot doo" single later in the '90. And also "What's your sign" around 1998

~crazy peanut~ said...

Mississauga, Ontario, Camnada

SingBlue said...

Unknown, T'Pau was my first thought as the lead singer (someone Decker?) took the name and still performs from what I can gather. Plus she must be pushing 60. Which wouldn't rule her out, but ewwwwwww.

Nancy coco said...

I've never posted, but have lurked for about 2 years. Happy thanksgiving from Bellingham, Washington!
