Blind Item #3

This former A list entertainer(singer) who is a Grammy winner with unusual hair has had a tough time selling albums or even making them. She is out of money and spends most of her time trying to stay off heroin and crack which she has battled since hitting it big with a huge album.

Cyndi Lauper

Simon said...

Doesn't look like a heroin case but Adele has quite the bouffant hair deal going on

T. E. Cuz said...

i thought to guess lauper but she has done the whole broadway thing, exec producing kinky boots, no?

veee said...

The word unusual makes me think of Lauper, but didn't she just win a Tony?

Habibti said...

Sounds like an old blind for Amy Winehouse. Fits her perfectly and she was known for her beehive hair.

Get out of my head, FSP.

I was researching and she's been really active as a songwriter and just had a lot of success after doing the score for the musical version of Kinky Boots. On the other hand, this is the 30th anniversary of "She's So Unusual" and she never really matched the success of that album again.

I'm going with FSP and saying Cyndi Lauper.

Sherry said...

NOT Cyndi. She's never been a druggie. Someone else.

Erika Badu? (sp)

Zelda Zonk said...

Amy Winehouse.
Oh, wait.

Count Jerkula said...

After the lousy Savannah/Greg Allman blind the other day, I wouldn't be surprised if this was Winehouse.

Macy. Didn't have custody of her kids when she hit it big. Never explained why. Everything since then has failed.

Mark B said...

I think if it was Adele or Duffy, who are the two that come to mind, it would say "foreign born" (being English and Welsh respectively), so Macy Gray makes sense.

keirstin brent said...

Def Macy she has a new single she is trying to promote on twitter called #stoned lol

hunter said...

Not Lauper, she's had her shit together for a long time.

Seachica said...

Macy Gray fits this perfectly.

EvieShackles said...

I'm down with Macy Gray, Sinead or Lauren Hill....

M. Brown said...

Kesha has studs in her head does that count?

sifichick said...

Can't be Adele. Crack & heroin make you skinny. She's a healthy looking girl.

Fijigrrl said...

Sinead

hothotheat said...

I don't think Macy's hair is unusual. I like the Erykah Badu guess.

Sean said...

Macy has been rumored to be a junkie for her entire career.
I have some mild first hand knowledge of this. I was working security some years ago for a festival where she was performing. I saw her backstage, near where I was stationed. She was clearly on something. She looked confused as to what she was supposed to be doing, and where to go. She wasn't very good once she actually made it on stage. There more than a few people booing and heckling her.

TLP said...

Annie Lennox?

auntliddy said...

Yes, what sherry said. Well said!

di butler said...

Macy.

Aoife said...

My first thought was Chaka. I'm posting my guess before reading the comments.

Does Macy Gray have a Grammy?

Sprink said...

Yes, Macy has a Grammy.

Massive G said...

Sinned O'Connor
