Blind Item #5

This former A+ list celebrity/singer who is now a B lister with A list name recognition is back on heroin again. Strung out and pasty, he looks awful. He has been trying to smoke pot to get an appetite but it isn't working. He looks like death.

NotcGeorge Michael please?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Anyone see pics of Boy George at the Brit awards. Yeesh.

sandybrook said...

He made himself up to look like someone beat him up :(

Lady Heisenberg said...

Boy George. He made me wanna cry on fashion police last week

sandybrook said...

Oh goody they might have a tornado at the Daytona 500 in about 10 minutes!

skippy said...

Jared letto?

MsWeedle said...

Scott Weiland?

Violet said...

Was Boy George ever A+? He's meant to be on one of those raw food type diets. He was on the radio last week and sounded ok (clearly how his voice sounds on the radio is not an indication or otherwise of heroin addiction).
And I didn't think the other George was ever into heroin - all day pot smoking yes, but not the big stuff.

Hanwi said...

Wasn't Boy George really fat just a little while ago? He has lost tons of weight, so he fits.

Aeol said...

Boy George looked great to me on fashion police last week - coherent, chubby, thoughtful.

Boy George tweeted a photo of himself last week. He used to be fat. Now he's thin. He looks perfectly healthy to me. EOS.

NaughtyNurse said...

Steven Tyler

Lady Heisenberg said...

However, I think MsWeedle may be right with Scott W. Total would not be surprised and he's been back in the news the last two days with some drama. Well done!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Last I heard, Steven was still off the bad shit. I think Enty wants us to think it's Boy nuts actually Scott

Lady Heisenberg said...

*but it's

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@Lady H, -15 for improper use of contracted verb. Please revise your comment and turn back in when you learn how to use spelchek.

headrot said...

I would love to do some with weiland or leto.

Also: opiates make you crave sugar. They dont kill your appetite per say, they just make you incredibly nauseous and prone to vomiting.

sandybrook said...

I am permanently banished from here then @Kristin becuz my fucking spelchek has a mind of its own :(

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@sandybrook Lady H is working on her jurisprudential philosophy thesis. The expectations for you and I are much lower. We get points for sober typing.

G said...

Not Boy George. He was just on some TV show last week promoting his new album. He looked very good.

Pasty is a word that might describe Steven Tyler or George Michael. I'd go with Tyler.

Amy said...

Just as am aside, yes, Boy George was A+ with Culture Club more than 30 years ago (and he was a lead singer on Band Aid's Do They Know it's Christmas) and had a solo high about 20 years ago in the Crying Game era.

sandybrook said...

@Kristin that sober typing we do must be ....thinking......ooh the stuff we do weekday afternoons! :)

TalksTooMuch said...

I was thinking Scott Weiland as well, but the rating seemed really high for him

sandybrook said...

@TTM He was never A+……if its a rocker its Tyler.
OR Gregg Allman.

Ms. Good Intentions said...

Gregg Allman is absolutely a+ in my world but I can't imagine him being so in Enty's. I just saw him last month at his tribute concert. He was thin but my seat wasn't close enough to gauge his health.

brittiany said...

I think its Scott Wetland or Steven Tyler. Did y'all know that Scotts ex wife is a really good friend of Charlise Theron. They know each other from their modeling days. Charlise even let her stay at her house for quite awhile when she was drying out.

MISCH said...

It doesn't say foreign so I think it's an American

Seabee said...

Scott Weiland is only a singer. Never A+ either. Steve Tyler was on American Idol which gets him the "celebrity" portion and he looks like hell.

Derek Harvey said...

@brittany ---it is "Charlize"

Derek Harvey said...

Perry Farrell

Imani_Malika said...

McCauley Culkin? Isn't he trying to be a musician now? Or do we expect Enty to ACTUALLY mean the dude does legit music?

Walt Driscoll said...

At one point Boy George was A+++.

He is absolutely not back on heroin.

Ziggatron Stardust said...

What about that guy from Babyshambles? Pete Dohrety....

AIP said...

Oh yes, Boy George was certainly A+ back in the early-to-mid 80s; he sold shed-loads of records (actual, honest-to-God vinyl records) back with Culture Club, was a fashion icon, had dolls made of him (one friend of mine still had hers in pride-of-place in her bedroom 10 years later). In terms of name recognition he was certainly A+++, as in even people who didn't follow pop culture, and yer granny knew who he was. MY granny adored him, and even to this day a mention of his name will get an "awwww" out if my septuagenarian mother.

I know this blind is "inspired" by the photo in the Daily Fail, but I hope he's not on H!

Princess Nobody said...

David Cassidy

Sherry said...

Think it is Scott. Def A+ with all the bands he's been in and a celebrity due to his run ins with the law.

^Hell yes to this.

TalksTooMuch said...

OT Alert: Book Club Tonight at 6:30 MT on BI#2, see anyone / everyone there!

Gypsytrill said...

Ozzy?

hothotheat said...

Leto is first an actor then singer. I don't think he's ever done heroin.

I don't think Steven Tyler is B list. He's like permanent A list. I think Perry Farrell fits.

LowKey said...

Not to mention, Leto looks GREAT! So that would rule him out...

Fleuhr Flower said...

Mick Jagger? Would he be a B?

Blankverse said...

Could be Boy George, he was arrested for heroin possession in 1986, and he has spoken about his addiction in the late 80s.

Candyzeit said...

Aaron Carter

Karen D.C. said...

I think Scott Weiland would have been an A+ for about a year or two. I don't think Boy George would be making appearances, and wasn't George Michael doing some other drug?

Scott Weiland was a heroin addict, has has been back and forth to rehab for the last 10 years or so. Unhappily, I agree that this is Scott.

Karen D.C. said...

Or maybe Dave Navarro.

bellaluna said...

As does mine. You should see the weird shit it comes up with. And the vocal typing feature is absolutely FUBAR

Brent Vassar said...

Marc Anthony

BlackXacto said...

Ozzy?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

@TTM I'm just seeing your message :/

TalksTooMuch said...

That's too bad, Kristin, but I am still sitting around drinking wine! Looks like we can start up again. I am thinking of maybe suggesting anyone interested email me so I can send out a proper notification so we don't miss anything due to trolls or what have you.

Did I mention the wine?

Chris J said...

A list forever. He was a huge cultural influence.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Nuts!

Lady Heisenberg said...

+1 looks like it's wine & walking dead time here for me too. Good call TTM

@wiglet no Heisenberg standard for me. I'm just another sucker on CDAN trying to navigate this interface which really blows. I'll work on that spell check. Revise & Resubmit now means something else entirely lol

di butler said...

Let me end this for y'all in regards to listing- despite Entys sometimes right listings. Ozzy, Steven Tyler, Boy George-all A+ listers forever, even if you only went on name recognition. Weiland, George M were A+ at one time, SW is about a C now, GM A-, B.

Weiland broke off touring last yr with "no plans" for 2014. I haven't heard differently, so I could be wrong on that, but I haven't seen anything. I guess it's probably him.

At some point, I will say it right the first time. Today is not that point.

@Kristin, I know it's confusing. I'm doing the thesis, Lady H is doing a dissertation.

The difference in the US (for most places of higher learning) is that a thesis is so that you can type "Paging Dr 7" and the other is so that you can say "Hi, LH, MoFA".

It's not a hard and fast rule, though. Some universities see them as the same; in other countries, it's the reverse.

Lady Heisenberg said...

7, I'm working on my PhD. I already have my MA. My defense for my dissertation proposal is on St Patty's.

Lady Heisenberg said...

So that makes us Master Seven and Master Heisenberg, then? Until we get them three letters at least? Keep fighting the good fight! LOL

Lady Heisenberg said...

Right on Di! You're the main reason I try to check in again at night! I appreciate you humor but I respect your diligence ;)

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I once built a semi-functional catapult out of old extension cords and a mop. Beat that, astronauts.

Kathleen said...

Both Ozzy and Dave Navarro are still sober all the way around.

versace buckles said...

i think it's Joe Jonas even though the ratings are high and it doesn't mention tweener. It may be a reach but I thought the mentioning of pot referred to Miley's recollection of him smoking pot as a 13 yr old even though he denies it.

Wendy Rene said...

wasn't there a blind not too long ago about an A list celebrity/singer who was passed out with a needle in his arm and it freaked out the little kid who walked in the room and found him? I'm not sure I'm getting all of that 100% correct...I just remember Steven Tyler being the popular guess on that one not too long ago. This sounds like Steven Tyler again, imho

Sis said...

My guess is Richie Sambora, wasn't it rumored that he was the one to get Jon Bon Jovi's daughter hooked on heroin, hence his being kicked out of the band?

And he was an answer to a recent blind about waiting for his dealer at a bar.

Scott weiland is in rehab apparently on order of a judge for 6 months
