Blind Item #6 - Reader Blind

A call came in on one of the dead lines; I don't even know why this number was still on the phone.
When I answered, I immediately knew the voice, she didn't have to announce herself. She was, is, and will always be, a hot mess.

She was stranded at an airport across country because she missed her flight and wanted us to re-book her. The problem? She wasn't even on our label, not even a sister label. I had no idea what to do because it was so surreal answering the phone and hearing that voice. I kind of panicked and put her on speaker. My floor gathered around to hear her rambling, which was, for her, somewhat coherent. Eventually, word spread and basically the entire office was gathered around the phone listening to her plight. We finally found someone at her own label to take over the call. Again, we don't know how she got that number, why she couldn't just get on another flight herself, etc. I don't know why I was so shook, but I was kind of scared. Maybe for good reason...

Azalea Banks?

I don't think that Azalea Banks is scary enough to provoke that kind of response, maybe someone higher up the list.

Tricia13 said...

Maybe Foxy Brown? Lil Kim?

Jimbonius said...

Courtney Love?

Boldblonde said...

Why would they be scared if it was Azalea?

+1 I bet it is...great guess

Boldblonde said...

This is someone known for their ''particular'' voice.

MeliticusBee said...

This is someone with a particularly notable voice who is either super-scary herself, has scary "people" or who was suicided in some manner...

Troy Dyer said...

My first thought was Courtney as well. She would scare the shit out of me too

Sunkist said...

Maybe Remy Ma

Brayson87 said...

Yeah with Courtney I'd start having nightmares of being shot while I was unconscious.

V said...

My first thought was Mariah but she probably has an entourage with her at all times.

MissDavie said...

Sounds like Courtney Love. I can see her being stuck in a airport without any idea of what to do for herself.

Jon said...

My first thought was Paula Abdul. But I'll switch over to Courtney...although I don't know that her voice is instantly recognized.

Lucy said...

This is absolutely Courtney Love because the last part about the person being scared and with good reason is hinting to her allegedly having Kurt offed. (I personally don't believe she did that but many out there do.)

LIZA

Rosie riveter said...

My first thought was
I can't wait for a rogue member of this crowd to send in a reader blind that just goes off rails.
Preferably krab or Angela
Hahahahaha Oh dear Jesus please yes

DON'T TEMPT ME

Alma said...

Courtney Love

americanpanda said...

why would Courtney be calling a music label?
I don't have any guesses.

yepthatsme said...

@KRAB, consider yourself tempted. Now show us what do you have!

Aquagirl said...

Hot Mess + Being Scared for a Good Reason = Courtney Love

Lucy said...

@americanpanda - you're joking, right?

Brayson87 said...

I'd assume she'd call looking for someone else talented to murde uh marry for good songs to use?

Vita said...

Thank you whoever has contributed these fun blinds! This screams Courtney Love in one of her manic-like, off-kilter moments to me...raspy-voiced, random rambling in a fubar moment (assuming one record label would get her to another) whilst describing a fubar situation...relying upon her celebrity, sheer loud willpower, and the kindness of strangers to help her land in a soft place.

americanpanda said...

@Lucy - yes, lol

Bec said...

If you have had people do everything for you long enough, I imagine it literally wouldn't occur to you you could do it yourself... and if you're in a mania, or high, or drunk it's even less likely to occur to you. I maintain this is the real reason why so many celebrities end up in 'hot mess' territory...

Take Tori Spelling: If she would simply get her real estate license she'd be making more money than she'll ever get from sponsorships... but it would never occur to her that another career field exists than "entertainer". Sigh.

Vita said...

Bec-- but that makes sense, and stuff

Marybel said...

Lohan?

VRWC said...

She was my first thought. Or Barbra Streisand.

Unknown said...

Amy Winehouse? Hot mess, distinct cockney accent...

Unknown said...

Getting a phone call from Amy Winehouse would absolutely terrify me.

rabbit said...

Carrie Fisher. Her last flight she had an "event" and emergency personnel were called on board upon the landing.

hunter said...

Carrie Fisher never signed with any labels that I know of

AbbyRock said...

My first thought was Madonna with her awful "British" accent. Besides this, she comes across as arrogant enough to think anyone would jump when she called whether it was her label or not.

Mahogany1 said...

Kesha

Sophia S said...

Also...Carrie Fisher died in 2016.

Sagan said...

Distinctive voice, rambling blather, called the wrong label...

Courtney Love
Paula Abdul
Whitney Houston (since there was no time frame for the call)
Joan Jett
Amy Winehouse (again, no time frame given in the blind)

VikingSong said...

It's obvious it's Courtney Love.

Jack's Girl said...

What gets me is her own father thinks she did. Makes you wonder.....

Sunshine Child said...

I thought Liza Minnelli - very distinctive voice and has some distinctive vices too...god love her

Mummy Bear said...

Didn’t Lily Allen recently get stranded at the airport? She had no money and no bank cards and couldn’t get to Brazil?

gauloise said...

courtney is who i thought of but does she make music anymore,
