Blind Item #8 - Grammy Awards - Mr. X

This back in the day one hit wonder with the unusual name she name dropped in her own song always like to say she is sober. She will even say it while drinking bourbon and smoking pot. Such was the case this weekend.

Iggy?

Macauley said...

Chaka Khan?

Flashy Vic said...

Don't think Chaka Khan deserves 'one hit wonder' really though, does she.

Brayson87 said...

Meredith Brooks? ;)

Krab said...

India Arie?

Natasha21 said...

India Arie. Even back when she was famous, she was trashed out of her mind.

Tricia13 said...

Macy Gray?
Not that it’s so unusual,but first /only time I think I’ve heard it used as a first name?

Tricia13 said...

Or maybe Fiona Apple but I hope not/
:(

Brayson87 said...

India Arie fits for name dropping in her biggest hit.

Fiona is not a one hit wonder. She has a ton of loyal fans and her last album in 2012 debuted at number 5.

I will defend Fiona Apple til my dying day. She is a fucking genius.

Tricia13 said...

I happen to
Love her music as well. No need to defend her with me.Ive also met her and she’s extremely sweet(and shy). Enty has wrongfully called artists that have multiple hits this... the only reason I threw her name in.

Tricia, Fiona fans unite!!

Brayson87 said...

Fiona gave the best MTV speech ever lol.

Tricia13 said...

100% Paris! I was always (still am) stunned by her depth,her vocals her style. She’s a bad ass

Brayson87 said...

I love heretics :)

Remember it well....

Tricia13 said...

Think she was still with David Blaine then. They were an interesting couple.

gauloise said...

Betty Boo, the one hit wonder song is "Betty Boo doing the do" from the 90s?

IT was a big hit in Europe and she was always on MTV and stuff for a while, but don't know if it was a hit in the USA.

gauloise said...

+1 for India Arie, she has that song with her name in it

MDAnderson said...

I love her song Paper Bag. Criminal is not even her best song.

SusannZ said...

If they had one hit --back in the day ---then why are you even talking about them?
Desperate for stories?

AlleyKat said...

Love her version of across the universe.

Tricia13 said...

ShadowBoxer....

dummypants said...

Oh wow, I went down a Fiona rabbit hole on YT this weekend and watched a bunch of her live performances from the last 10 years. For those into her look up her appearance on Prairie Home Companion. So so good!

dummypants said...

My guess is Lady Sovereign maybe? Not sure she would warrant a blind in the year of our lord 2019 but who knows??

parissucksliterally said...

Paper Bag is AWESOME
Daredevil
Oh Well
Left Alone
Sleep To Dream
Tymps
Sullen Girl


Oh my G-d, I love her so fucking much. Such a talent.

Hot Knife is amazing!!!

Unknown said...

Yeah, don't fuck with Fiona. She's carved her own way and done well. And everything she said in that speech above is right.

Vita said...

🎢Chaka khan, let me rock you, let me rock you, Chaka Khan🎢...with Rufus or solo, she's a legend! That being said, she seems daffy enough to claim sobriety between puffs and swigs.

Wow, love Fiona...not a one hitter, and which song cites her name? Macy has had some fun songs, I dont know how many would qualify as hits.

Not familiar enough with work of the others.

Freebird said...

Shadow Boxer used to be my anthem. ❤️

I love Fiona. She’s positively brilliant.

Freebird said...

SAME. πŸ’—

Freebird said...

And also, Macy Gray is no “one hit wonder!!”

LuLu said...

Love Fiona...

S D said...

Wow whoever said Chaka Khan knows nothing about her music. Not only did she have solo hits, but before that she was with the group Rufus in the 70's & they had a number of hits....C'mon!

Cassie said...

Absolutely jumping on the Fiona love train. I'm almost positive we're getting FA5 this year!! I follow her pretty closely and the only time I've ever heard her say she was sober was back in 2012 she told a story to a reporter about how she got drunk one day and thought it contributed to a baby hummingbird fleeing it's nest in her backyard while she was taking pictures...lol no joke. So she stopped drinking for a month to "learn a lesson" from it. Other than that she's pretty open about drinking and weed/hash.

MDAnderson said...

Sweet Thing, I’m every woman, tell me something good, I feel for you, higher love duet and through the Fire. Plus Chaka has been open about her drug issues and has been to rehab.

GentleBreeze said...

Did Fiona do 'What if God was one of us'?

Freebird said...

Her singing Tell Me Something Good is AMAZING!!!

Freebird said...

That was Joan Osborne. Knew her back then. She’s a real BITCH. And she slept with all her married band members. She’s trash.

Vita said...

MDAnderson--also Aint Nobody! Perhaps the past issues and rehabs are what are making her think she needs to deny current use? But one hit?😩

Gentle Breeze-- Nope, that was Joan Osbourne. Same era, though!

Vita said...

Freebird-- good scoop!and on subject of bitch...im drawing a blank..who sang, "im a bitch, Im a liar, im a ...?" I can hear it but i dont remember rest of lyrics

Sophie B Tucker' s "Damn! I wish I was your lover!" Was a catchy one. Lol! A Good exclamation song is always fun!

Tricia13 said...

Omg -Ain’t Nobody is my Chaka Jam and SBH -Damn I wish.... I listen to in the daily Vita!
Twinning!

Tricia13 said...

Always Hated that song so happy to hear I had good reason lol.
Now she’s working at Dairy Queen again 🍦!

Vita said...

Hooray, Tricia!!!😁 That's some groovy twinning!

I wrote Sophie B.Tucker, lol!!! Not a coincidence that Chicago cast recording and Chakas greatest hits were simultaneously in heavy rotation during a period of stressful commuting!

Vita said...

Im grateful that Dr. Evil has replaced Joan as the singer of that song when I hear it!

Tricia13 said...

I think it’s Sophie B Hawkins though lol
Still - πŸ’ƒI listened to it today- legit.

Vita said...

"Sophie Tucker would shit, I know, to see her name appear below, Foxy, Roxie Hart!". Yep, I was crediting a Vaudevillian with your song, lol! Sophie B. HAWKINS, indeed! Dance on! πŸ’ƒ

James Howlett said...

Fiona Apple is fucking awesome!
I agree with Hot Knife and add Werewolf to the list of songs. Those lyrics are sharp!
It could mean a few things, especially if you remember Norman's Cay. Minor Key.

GentleBreeze said...

Whoops. Thanks for the info. Always kinda liked that song, though.

sugar of lead said...

Fiona's cover of Pure Imagination. That 'I'm a bitch' song was Meredith Brooks. +1 Vita re: Dr. Evil bahaha!

Sal T said...

I used to blast out Mistake in my teenage years! Still love Fiona :)
