Blind Item #2

This A+ list celebrity/singer not named Rihanna is about to have a serious PR problem. Apparently there is a phone recording of her booking agent turning down $250K for a 30 minute show for a charity which is what Beyonce was offered and who is doing it for free. The booking agent can be heard saying that he just got off the phone with the A+ lister and that she won't play for less than $2M. He then used a bunch of derogatory terms for the mentally challenged people that the show is for and said they cost extra.

Playing devil's advocate here.

Maybe it's all the booking agent trying to get as much as he/she can. They do get a cut of whatever performers get right?

I'm with Derek again.

@Kristin---lets hope Reno is having a sleep in this morning!

MILEY CYPRUS

Amy said...

So it's either perform for the charity or be blackmailed into performing for it? Or is it normal for charities to record the calls they make seeking donations of any sort?

laura ramona said...

No way gaga and miley are A+. sandy where are you? it s not yet happy hour!!

Amby said...

Mariah

I'm on with the Miley guess - didn't she employ little people a concert previously?

Booking agents sometimes do get a cut (depends on the contract) but if the celeb (or her managers/people) found out they turned down a potentially worthy opportunity (either financially or PR-wise), said booking agent would be find booking rooms at the Motel 6 for Hulk Hogan's daughter as their next career step.

Amy said...

Celebrities typically do have a booking fee and charities know it -- Enty on many occasions has acted outraged about that status quo. So without hearing this it's impossible to know whether (1) the celebrity's rate is anything out of line for this and (2) whether the agent was really fucking stupid enough to make slurs about a mentally challenged group of people or was cussing out an asshole/moron on the phone.

I thought it was Katy and she may not even have a clue this happened.
Im here now Laura

Vera L- said...

I agree with DB Cooper, Miley is being Miley.

NaughtyNurse said...

Sounds like a booking agent is about to lose his job.

*would be found

Mimosa time!

Clue here is "A+ list". I don't think Xtina, Miley or Katy P are A+ list. We're talking Madonna territory here. I don't think this is Madonna but someone that big.

Britney? Gaga?

Renoblondee said...

@Derek Imma get you! LOL

Renoblondee said...

Mariah is my guess anyway.

sugarbread maker said...

gaga is known for taking $$ for charities to perform and then sitting her a$$ down and saying she'd rather watch. she got into a huge falling out with Elton over pulling this crap. lady caca for the win

Sherry said...

My first thought was Madonna and I like that Amy brought the intelligence to this blind. We'll just see how bad it will be for the artist won't we?

Flora Goforth said...

@Amy

It seems that a lot of the enterns have no clue about the business side of the biz.

audrey said...

Miley is not A+. She hasn't sold that many records or earned enough accolades for her music. She is still trying to break free of the Hannah Montana brand. Mariah is A+.

When a 70-minute Elton John concert nets $800K with Elton's time being donated; I'm going to guess this is John Lennon's agent for a Beatles reunion, 'cause nobody else could raise that sort of money with a 30-minute charity performance.

When will they learn? Nothing written, no phones, no computers. Oral statements only.

If this is aired I feel some firings if not sueings afterwards: The asshole agent and the person who recorded it unbeknownst (sp) to the agent (why would he say that knowing that he is being recorded?).

It's all BS said...

Gaga.

T. E. Cuz said...

Yup. Even if the celeb wanted more money, they would still be nice and charming. Sounds like this person spoke from their own mind.

M. Brown said...

Brittany is a good guess because she has no control over her business decisions. The agent wouldn't worry about checking with her.

Krissie said...

This won't be bad PR for the star. She was not recorded, right? It was only the booking agent recorded, claiming she said those things. The star will just blame it on the booking agent and say he made it all up.

That said, Katy Perry is a good guess because she seems ignorant as hell (I can't believe she didn't get more crap for that "Ur so gay" song) and I could definitely see her using derogatory terms.

Jake Snikies said...

It's Katy or Taylor... they are they only other current A+ listers besides the two eliminated ( Beyonce & Rihanna ).

Madonna, Xtina, Gaga, Mariah are all looking up at them popularity & relevance-wise at the moment.

Alita said...

Lol @Topper. Indeed I can imagine those tickets being pricey.

Nolesgirl said...

I'm with @Seven - Wildley Vaginapus for sure
