Blind Item #5

Despite the drug cocktail she takes every day, this HIV+ former A list singer from a permanent A list group that has not had a hit in a long time, is having a tough time physically right now.

Stevie nicks

Courtney Love?

drew holthaus said...

Yep

filmfanb said...

another status of someone we dont need to know about

Brayson87 said...

They say it's treatable now but there still isn't any cure.

OB said...

What permanent A-list group was Courtney a part of?

Unknown said...

Stevie Nicks would be perforated septum. Courtney Love would be HIV+. I wonder if she gave it to Kurt?

Freebird said...

In other news, comedian Kevin Barnett’s cause of death has been listed as pancreatitis. Such an odd thing to happen. He was vacationing in Tijuana & in his photo from the day before, he looks totally normal. It is an extremely painful way to die. So weird & so sad...

The Woodman said...


So which is it, Love or Nicks?

gauloise said...

Hole is not a list, and they never really had a hit.

Shaddup Mimsey said...

I wouldn't consider Hole a permanent A list group, but I would consider Fleetwood Mac permanent A list.

MDAnderson said...

Hole is permanent A?? Didn’t Kurt or Billy Corgan write most of their songs.

gauloise said...

Debbie Harry had a heroin addiction

Tink said...

Courtney has been all over Paris for fashion week looking really good.

Aquagirl said...

I wouldn’t consider Hole permanent A-List.

Nonya Bidness said...

Yeah, no f'ing way is Hole perm A list. They weren't even A list at their height in the 90's.

gauloise said...

...and Blondie for perm A list band. She was addicted to heroin for several years in the 80s

Bklynbaby said...

+1 for Debbie Harry - many behind the scenes people are rallying for her right now.

DontQuitYourDayJob said...

Hole is permanent A. Live Through This is known as the best album of the 90s to many prestigious music critics. Everyone I knew growing up owned that album from jocks to goths.

Do Tell said...

Hole certainly did have hits. When I was a DJ I remember Celebrity Skin (which was a #1 in the U.S. and Canada) and Malibu (#3 in the U.S.) were on my playlist all the time when they were in the charts. The album went platinum in multiple countries. "Doll Parts" was a #4 hit for them in the U.S.

Phelps said...

Fergie, Black Eyed Peas

Do Tell said...

Oh, I hope it isn't Grace Slick. Not that I want it to be anyone, but I really like her.

michys1 said...

Gwen Stefani as her ex was a bit of a try sexual I believe. Are black eyed peas a list tho??

Brayson87 said...

Hole was A list, but permanent is kind of a stretch.

Jon said...

Stevie is not a former anything. She's on tour with Fleetwood Mac right now and is in her best form since the early 80s.

Jon said...

Check ya facts...the highest any Hole song made it was #58 for Doll Parts. Without looking it up, 99% of people couldn't even name another member of Hole. Not permanent A list by anyone's standards

Jon said...

Grace Slick is a great guess.

gauloise said...

Those chart listings cited are for the Alternative charts, not the top 40. Fake news.

The fact Hole only had 3 hit songs on the alternative charts shows how inconsequential they are even in their niche.

Do Tell said...

They were big hits. And charting in the top ten on Billboard is not inconsequential. Top 40 radio playlists are comprised of several charts. Hole was a very big alternative band in the 90's.

gauloise said...

Grace Slick never took Heroin

Do Tell said...

Jon, you're wrong.

Brayson87 said...

+1 Jon, Grace Slick is a great goat. ;)

Do Tell said...

AIDS is not only spread through needles. All it took was for one of her sex partners to have it or be a high risk needle user that contracted it. It used to be spread through transfusions also before oversight got a lot better.

Jon said...

Never

Brayson87 said...

@Do Tell, Poor Ryan White, :(

At least we know MJ probably didn't touch him.

Jon said...

Where are you reading that heroin is involved with this story?

gauloise said...

Grace Slick was already 40 at the start of the AIDS era and married from 79-94. I guess her husband could have slept around a lot, but then it could be literally any female singer:Patti Smith, the runaways, heart,, etc, etc.



gauloise said...

I am guessing from the blind it is heroin from the way it is written, it doesnt mention an ex or bad choice in men

nancer said...

stevie isn't former A list---she's permanent A list from permanent A list group, and this doesn't fit her anyway. i sure don't buy hole as permanent A list by a very long shot. so i don't think it's courtney. i would call grace slick permanent A list singer from permanent A list group. so i don't know. i don't know much about debby harry but i like that guess better than the others.

rosie riveter said...

This might be the only time I agree with Jon.
Seriously. Best album of the 90's? Hahaha okay derrriick

AlleyKat said...

Hole aren't A list are they?

AlleyKat said...

Nooooooooooooooo not Debbie!

AlleyKat said...

Aw no! She was my idol when I was a kid...I named my Daughter for her. so sad if it's true.

Jon said...

She could have gotten HIV six months ago. 79-94 has nothing to do with anything. People still get HIV/AIDS to this very day, even 40 yo people. Seriously not trying to be rude (usually I am), but your comments are quite ignorant/misinformed. Please get educated on the subject so that you don't become a victim of HIV yourself.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Former A list singer from a permanent A list band is a weird description.

Maybe a band that went though lineup changes?

HeatherBee said...

Grace Slick was my first guess, but I do like the Debra Harry guess as well. I keep kicking around Diana Ross in my head also.

J F said...

Oh, i know what will be fun! Lets play..... Dox the person with a severe and often fatal (is becomes full blown AIDS)

Paul Saint John said...

Don't play with needles and don't stick your dick up strangers'annuses. It's that simple.

OsborneCoxMemoir said...

Without question this has to be Tina Turner. She is a self-admitted recovered sex addict. And so ill of late even had a kidney transplant, poor lady.

B626 said...

Brenda Carlisle The GoGos ?

B626 said...

Dale Bozzio
Missing Persons?

Troy Dyer said...

+1 Fergie
BEP were huuuge internationally and big in us

astra worthington said...

Hahahaha! Imagine how much time and money we could save if everyone followed those simple rules!

Do Tell said...

Without question this is *not* Tina Turner. She was never part of a band. The Ike and Tina Turner Revue was an act, not a band.

Do Tell said...

I do so love the hypocrites who take a high road on one thread while advocating the lowest of roads on another.

Susannah Leigh Murray said...

Was my ‘soundtrack’ to a very traumatic period of time for me (during the 90’s).

Unknown said...

Belinda was bigger as a solo artist, than she was with GoGo's.
Wouldn't the blind mention this?
How is Joan Jett these days?
Maybe someone from the Bangles? or one of the Wilson Phillips members?

Stephen Laughton said...

Hole are total A list goddamit....

Mischief Girl said...

I'll be gutted if this is Deborah Harry.

And then I'll want her to hang on for another 11 months so I can put her on my 2020 Death List.

Sal T said...

@Mischief Don’t count on Enty being correct. I put Charlie Sheen on my 2018 Death List thanks to Enty and that f*cker is stilling out there sliming around :(

Cee Kay said...

The only person this could possibly be based on the description is Debbie Harry. And that makes me sad.

@Sal Only the good die young, right? Charlie will be here forever.

Jeweled Skye said...

Maybe one of the remaining girls of TLC? "Permanent A List Group" being that TLC is the best-selling American girl group and second worldwide to the English group Spice Girls.... Just throwin' it out there.

Mango said...

Hole isn’t permanent A List, but damn, Live Through This was a fantastic album.

Alice H. said...

outing folks HIV status is disgusting. Shame on you

Sal T said...

@Cee It sure does seem that way sometimes.

Weekittylass said...

Grace Slick is a fucking bitch with a great voice and stage presence. I hope it’s not her.

hunter said...

Hole was NEVER A list and I'm over 40 and don't know who Grace Slick is.

happyfrancis said...

Ann Wilson from Heart?

greenfrog said...

Courtney has been wigging out and saying some strange stuff...I could see this being her. There were other blinds about her being out and having oded on the botox...

Hole I wouldnt call A list, it was a good album, but never any follow up and most people believe Kurt wrote the songs.

Vita said...

Chrissie Hynde? One of remaining Pointer Sisters? Doesnt give era or genre of music...

Sd Auntie said...

Loved Hole!! Fantastic albums that Kurt wrote for!!!

Sd Auntie said...

Love that album!!

orangesoda said...

Yeah, no way Hole were ever perm A list. I could mention them to anyone I know and they wouldn't be able to name a song (granted, we're about ten-fifteen years younger than the grunge generation but still if they were perm, people would know them). However, everyone I know knows Stevie and Debbie despite none of us having been born when they were in their prime.
That being said, I hope it's neither of them.
No clue who Grace Slick is, too lazy too google.

Adrastia said...

Fun fact: It's damn near worthless to nitpick Enty's wacky rating system. Always have a little leeway.

Sd Auntie said...

Jefferson Airplane Hunter. And lots of people still get HIV. Its just the RX is much better than in the 80's. And I'm talking about 20 somethings and females. Lots of guys with down low lifestyles. Hep c also.

jikininki said...

Mel B.

Do Tell said...

You don't know Grace Slick of White Rabbit and Somebody To Love? That is rock and roll blasphemy!

Do Tell said...

Courtney Love has been A list on name recognition alone for so many years now I would definitely call her permanent A list.

Unknown said...

Not Chrissie.
Not Ann Wilson.
Just no.

astra worthington said...

Lol come on, this is a gossip site and no names have been revealed so chillax please. Nobody here claimed to be a saint or the epitome of shining morality.

And haven’t you been paying attention for the last 50 or so years? Shame is soooo outdated and nobody is ashamed of a damn thing any more. Must be an unintended consequence of this Brave New World! Oh well.

2 Sticks of Butter said...

Michelle from Destiny's Child? She did have something of a breakdown a few months ago...finding out you're HIV+ is worth at least a pout.

Unknown said...

Does Annie Lenox have AIDS? I remember her wearing a T-shirt at some awards show that said Living With AIDS on it. She was A-list and I guess you can consider The Eurythmics as A-list.

TellMeLies said...

NOT Debbie Harry. I doubt she would commit to playing the Tibet House Benefit Concert on Feb 7th if she was so weakened.

Anne T. said...

Please reveal this blind
