This married lead singer from one of the most popular musical groups of the 90′s who seemed to always have a million songs on Top 40 is transitioning from a man to a woman. His celebrity wife seems to be ok with it, but she isn’t talking about it, so who knows how she feels. Apparently the singer has a camera crew with him documenting everything.
Obviously Miss Stephanie Tyler has been in the process for quite some time.
My first thought was Mark McGrath, but his wife isn't famous.
It seems tailor made to make you think that it's Gavin Rossdale.
Oh how I would love it if this was Chris Martin and Goopy
I thought of Gavin and Gwen too, but I don't think he had a million songs in the top 10 - only a few.
R5, I remember the dark time when Bush was on every radio station 20 times a day. I don't know which Bush reign was worse.
Yeah I remember that song. But that's the only Bush song I think I've ever heard!
Axl Rose? if it is, then he can simply swap his first and last names and bingo!
it is cdan...so probably not in the 90's maybe had one hit and is married to a Canadian soap star no one heard of....enty grasps at so many straws it is ridiculous.
I thought of Perry Farrell
Does anybody believe CDAN?
scott weiland - stone temple pilots
[R5] Can't be him, he was popular in the early to mid 2000s.
Meant to direct that at [R4]
Why was Mark McGrath your first thought, r2?? He is so masculine. Or are you being funny?
Any more guesses? Who was big in the 90s and has a celebrity wife?
Jesus, Mark McGrath seems masculine to you?
Am I being "funny," r20? No, I most certainly am not, for reasons that should be clear to anyone with the sense of sight. McGrath has so completely fucked with every other part of his body that cutting his wang off doesn't even seem like that much of a stretch.
Blink 182 lead singer Tom DeLonge's wife is somewhat famous for being an interior designer, she's shit at it but the fangurls and Malibu set love it.
Not Nick Lachey.
Not Dave Mathews.
Trent Reznor not a top 40 act.
Garth Brooks, not in a band...
Perry Farrell, could buy that.
Probably something like Jarvis Cocker...
Does anyone else genuinely loathe BIs? Nonsense that never goes anywhere. Same shit over and over again.
ENTY makes up his blind items. He pumps out 7-10 blind items a day, that's a lot of inside info for a bankruptcy lawyer.
If this story has any count, and it probably doesn't, I would guess it's probably a boy bander. The BSB and *NSYNC constantly had top 10s.
Except that McGrath's stand-up routine would immediately be funnier than Clinton's. I've tried to watch her several times and didn't even crack a smile, let alone laugh, at anything she had to say. A huge snoozer of a "comedian". Perhaps I have to have a vagina to appreciate her...
We will find out soon, especially if there is a camera crew following the singer around.
RIck Ocaseck is a very good guess - he looks like a woman already.
Ocasek would be a good guess, but The Cars disbanded by the late 80sand weren't in the charts in the 90s. Unless the BI is off by a decade, which of course is possible.
I think some of you are starting from the wrong starting point, i.e. first trying to find someone with a celebrity wife. The starting point should be the band with millions of hits in the 90s. Most have escaped my memory, but there were loads of them, mostly crap.
Billie Joe Armstrong
Green Day have been big for most of the 2000s, even today, and the BI implies this was a band that were big just for that period. And, his wife's not really a celebrity.
I don't think Darius Rucker's wife is a celebrity but Hootie and the Blowfish was my first thought.
I think "million" is a clue somehow. That line in the BI feels awkward and forced.
EL is so homophobic, his readers must be flyover housewives. He only puts out 1 or 2 gay bis a month and they are all about hot bisexual men going straight for the right woman, and old bitter queens and transsexuals.
I think this is more like Savage Garden or some dance/pop band, not a rock band...Gavin may swing bi and Mark may love his cheek implants but no way would either of them go transgender...and yes CDAN does this a lot--makes some claim that a BI is an "A lister" or someone who was "everywhere" and really famous, etc, and it turns out to be someone no one has ever heard of.
I don't know who CDAN is but he/she is not a lawyer and is more likely several bloggers. Some of the blinds are actually true, but the really juicy ones I think CDAN makes up.
r42, CDAN's identity has already been revealed to be a bankruptcy lawyer at a firm which doesn't even deal with the entertainment business in any capacity. CDAN's only "proof" of being connected was a FedEx (or UPS) receipt he claimed was from a package sent to him by some C-lister he's supposedly friends with. The receipt, of course, traced back to a business with no entertainment ties and no relation whatsoever to the C-lister.
Yet people still take these blinds seriously.
Darren Hayes, the former lead singer of Savage Garden, is openly gay and is living with his partner in London. He doesn't fit this.
He has inned everyone from Taylor Lautner to Ryan Seacrest and This is a good indication of how anti-gay he is,
6. ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 09/04 **#10**
This former A list mostly movie actor was going to be A+ list for sure. He was headed there when he was busted in a raid and was caught wearing women's lingerie. The police decided to just give him a ticket and not book him. A producer found out about it and the word spread around and our actor barely gets much work now. He went from everything to nothing in under a year. Hayden Christensen
Which is bullshit bi, b/c since when has it been against the law to wear lingerie, and is it really a matter for the police can the police real arrest someone for wearing lingerie?
Presumably, he was arrested for whatever activity motivate the police raid, R45 -- not the fact that he was wearing women's lingerie.
If Christensen doesn't work, it's because he's TERRIBLE. Not because he enjoys an occasional bra and panties.
Barenaked Ladies duh. Their band name even tells you what they thought of themselves.
Steven Page or Ed Robertson.
Purely and simply Ent Lawyer hasn't got the ammo to be everywhere all at once as all these blinds suggest. There are too many a day for him not to be being fed a total line from PR hacks and bored housewives.
His gay blinds are rare but funnily enough, he seems dead set on pushing that Jake Gyllenhaal is on the verge of outing himself, which never happens of course and Jake would rather die with a face full of beard, a beard on his arm and a Starbucks cup in his hand, than ever come out. But Ent persists.
He might have a few leads sometimes, and if this one's being filmed it's reasonable to assume this gossip is going round town in a big way, but I still think most of Ent's stuff has no chance of being anything other than artistic licence.
Well for all the gossip Gavin and Gwen are having another baby (announced a few days ago) so doubt it's him.
It also doesn't sound as if 'he's leaving her' to 'live with his boyfriend' anytime soon as random blind items always seem to suggest.
Wow so timberlake is finally making the transition huh.
And wtf is up with Steven Tyler's tits?! He looks like my sister.
The answer is Gavin Rossdale. Come on, queens. This was easy.
Read upthread R55. Gavin just impregnated his wife, so obviously he is not on hormones or looking to transition.
In photos taken within the last couple of days, Gavin Rossdale looks exactly as he has for years and years. Nothing about him looks at all like he is transitioning. I think we can move onto another guess (although he was a good guess to start!)
Liam Gallagher. He's always wanted to be Shirley Bassey so he's now taking the final step and having hs monobrow removed. I believe s/he's going to donate it to burns victims.
How about Liam Gallagher from Oasis? His wife is a Canadian pop star.
Nicole Appleton's Canadian but I think All Saints were a British band.
I think she's split up with Gallagher. He seems to be having various girlfriends and various babies at the moment (and various girlfriends who want babies with him). His personal life seems rather confusing, so I doubt it's him.
I think it's one of those generic bands that just churned out crap that sold loads but no one remembers. I don't think it's anyone massively famous.
Anothet vote for Scott Stapp.
Although Dave Grohl seems plausible.
Josh Homme by any chance?
r62, Scott Stapp is a winger who's been known to make a horse's ass of himself on Faux News. Plus he has no famous wife. Not him.
And Dave Grohl seems "plausible" to you??? You know, sometimes straight guys dress up in pigtails just because it's funny (to them). Kind of like farting.
The item daid "celebrity wife", not famous wife. Stapp's wife is a model or cookbook writer or a model for cookbooks.
Who's the guy from Goo Goo Dolls? Reznick or something. Not sure he has a celebrity wife though.
The two surviving Beastie Boys are married to women who do public work.
Also Dave Grohl still has hit singles today, not just in the 90s. In fact he's probably more famous/popular now than he was then.
It's Tim McGraw.
No way in h-e-double hockey sticks it would be Dave Grohl. No way!
Gary Barlow or Robbie Williams from Take That?
I'm not sure R69, I can't really see either of them in a frock. I'd think more Howard than either of them. Or maybe one of Westlife?
Holy shit r70, you may be on to something. What about Brian McFadden from Westlife? He's married to Delta Goodrem, right? And sex with Kerry Katona is enough to turn any man off women forever.
I don't think Billy Corgan is married. Good guess though.
John Rzeznik from the Goo Goo Dolls, only just got married like a month ago, which doesn't rule him out, I guess but the timing seems odd. John used to be hot hot hot in the days Iris and Name, but I think he has had too many years as a drinker and heavy smoker and his looks have faded. He may have had some bad plastic surgery as well.
Darryl Hall? Or John Oates? The 80's and early 90's were huge for them.
Considering what a cunt you are, R33, one would think you had the whole vagina thing covered.
Art Alexakis from Everclear.
Boom! BI solved.
John Rzesnik would be a good guess. Look at some of these photos from google. He looks like he's "transitioning" in some of them (or else terrible, terrible plastic surgery.
Yeah John Rzeznick is looking way way female at this point. It's funny because back in the 80s before anyone had ever heard of them he was just an average looking overweight beer dude with bad teeth. Then he went into glamour mode and now he just looks like a generic plastic surgery baby gone wrong.
That character does look like a good candidate. What were the goo goo dolls hits? I can't name one.
There was a Rolling Stones article last year about someone doing this with pics et al, but cannot remember who. Not such a blind item really.
R85, are referring to the linked article about Tom Gable from the band Against Me? Not sure this blind is about him since.. has anyone ever heard of this band let alone them being one of the top bands of the 90s?
It was Against Me!`s ex-Tom Gabel,now Laura Jane Grace (Mary!). Also Life Of Agony`s Keith Caputo is now Mina Caputo.Really,what`s this wave of gender transitions with male rock musicians lately? It makes you wonder what`s actually going on inside male rock stars at large.
Although he has overdosed on botox, its not John Rzeznik. He was so gorgeous at one point he should have just let himself age gracefully. He's had alcohol and health issues, one reason he looks so bad.
Reznik is weird. GGD was on Rachel Ready the other morning, and he is literally a time capsule of 1997.he was even wearing a long sleeved Henley and camo pants.
Theme song of this thread (and I'm not implying that the BI is about members of the band, unfortunately they're not well known in America, I just thought it's apt title):
