Blind Item #15

This former A list "singer" from back in the day is doing things right. She knows her ability to sell tickets is limited despite everyone knowing her. She is teaming up with as many casinos as possible who have agreed to buy 50% of all her seats. No matter what, it will look like she is filling up theatres.

“Singer” makes me think of someone who can’t actually sing. Which no longer A list singer who can’t sing performs in a casino? I can only think of Britney but I don’t think I’m right lol

Cher

MDAnderson said...

Paula Abdul?

Lurky McLurkster said...

Christina Aguilera is hitting a bunch of casinos too

sandybrook said...

JLo\MV?

Charisma S said...

“Singer” implies someone who can’t sing though

J said...

It's their money. Probably seats which weren't getting sold for other shows either.

Kevin said...

There was an article out recently about how she doesn't sing at her shows. Eh, you know what you're getting if you buy.

Jessie McIntosh said...

Britney is A+ and she wouldn’t be referred to as former since she is still as relevant now as she was then.

shania twain lol

It has got to be Britney. Looking at that jokeresque face of hers makes me sad. I don't care how fit she is these days. I'd rather she was fat, but still had her original face.

filmfanb said...

"singer" in quotations. def britney

Liz Pop said...

I don't think Britney fit's the "from back in the day" description.
Seems like it's somebody older.
Paula Abdul sounds like a good guess.
Belinda Carlisle?

UniversalEnergy said...

It's either Gwen Stefani, Cher or Jennifer Lopez. Those ones are in Las Vegas currently. Gwen definitely isn't selling out. I think it's Cher here because there was another post that was Gwen.

Guesser said...

It's Paula Abdul. She is touring, Britney isn't "back in the day".+1 MDAnderson.

Guesser said...

The casinos do this a lot, they get the money back by keeping the gamblers there longer.

.robert said...

Paula Abdul fits.

Large Marge said...

PAT BENATAR CAN SING, BITCHES!!!

It's not Britney. Her run in Vegas was incredibly successful, whether the casinos gave out free tickets to gamblers or not. Her shows (and future shows) are the envy of JLo and Xtina because they thought Vegas was beneath them. When it makes a pile of money, as a performer, it's not beneath you.

Gwen Stefani

Stefani

Janet

Charisma S said...

She’s definitely not as relevant today as she was then lmao

Charisma S said...

Britney is from back in the day. She debuted like 20 years ago

Charisma S said...

If tickets are given out to such a magnitude, that’s not successful though.

Charisma S said...

JLO has a show in Vegas and Xtina was never in talks for Vegas so how do they think it’s beneath them?

Thonker said...

"singer" is britney but britney is usually referred to as permanent A-list so must be someone else

Daniel S said...

Maybe to some, but she is A+ and still sells tickets. Also, Britney isn't quite "back in the day" yet.

plot said...

Before Britney did her show in Vegas it was considered the provenance of novelty performers like Debby Reynolds and Cher, Wayne Newton and Liberace. Britney (and Cirque de Soleil and Celine somewhat) changed all that. Performers like JLo probably had been offered limited engagements by casinos before but turned them down because it was considered graveyard work - it means you are done. Now they are waking up to the possibilities, after Britney, but will never make the money Britney has secured for herself in Vegas. Not only that but Britney is back out on the road, so not retiring to Vegas just yet but using Vegas to work on herself and her professional capabilities.

travis said...

Paul Abdul will always be a dancer first, thus "singer."

Jennacheryl said...

Gwen or Christina?

QReturns said...

Janet Jackson

Guesser said...

Why does everyone assume this is Vegas? There are Casinos everywhere now. Even metal bands play them.

Unknown said...

I agree!

Unknown said...

Has to be Britney. She's playing a casino in my hometown tomorrow night. Immediately thought of her.

alepeck said...

My queen Britney.

Britney is doing a show at an MGM casino in Washington DC. It holds about 2,000 seats. So there's that.

Unknown said...

It’s Lady Gaga! Have you guys forgotten she’s starting a residency in Vegas at the Monte Carlo? In recent years she’s had trouble selling out her arenas. She’s gonna make a comeback once her movie is released.

Em22 said...

I JUST seen an ad for Christina and it was.... A casino concert..and, a wicked shitty pic, I might add. I didn't even recognize her, and didn't know who it was, til I saw the name. I thought Damnnnnnn... What'd she do to deserve this? Lol, sad. That Hollyweird is a rough crowd

Em22 said...

Absolutely! And, tell em... Large Marge Sent Ya... Or, Says So... Lol!

T Lynn said...

Holla back girl Gwen Stefani

Em22 said...

Totally agree... I was thinking the exact same thing. I don't even think Vegas when someone says Casino Tour, or playing Casino... I think everywhere else. Vegas, it just that, Vegas... But, Casinos is Jersey, Connecticut, and wherever else there is a small grp of Casinos. I'm right by CT, & there are two casinos that ALWAYS has concerts, some cool ones too. Xtena is heading there. I can't recall who else tho. But, isn't she a perm A list? Or even A+? And, girl can sing. I'm def keeping the peepers open for Casino concerts coming up. And, didn't Cher retire? Bc, Damn it, I paid a lot of freakn money to see her farewell tour.. I wouldn't pay to watch her burn now. Can't stand the bitch. Lol! But, I believe she retired, unless she's trying too hard to stay relevant, and has to come out of retirement. Or needs cash. Either way, lame.

Wouldn't Cher be listed as triple-threat or dual threat Academy Award winner/nominee, tho?

I always had the feeling that when a singer/group was attached to a casino for any length of time, it was as if they were on the downhill slide of their career. Even back in the Rat Pack days, when the only place you could see Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin perform was Vegas, it still felt like they were phoning it in, thankful they were getting a pay check. And don't get me started on Elvis...

It's funny that of all the so called vocalists out there, there are very few who can actually hold a tune, belt something, breath control, interpretation...Very few actual singers. Aguilera is an actual singer. Cher is an actual singer. Dion is an actual singer. Marie Osmond is an actual singer. Taylor Dayne is magnificent. Basia is queen. Oleta Adams.

Carey, of course, was wonderful. I fear she's broken her voice forever, too much hard living. It's a shame to see her doing lip sync, but she does.

Gomez was never a singer. Lopez was never a singer. Being good looking does not automatically make you a vocalist. Gomez seems to have figured this out, and moved on to other things.
