Blind Item

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.

by Anonymousreply 109/06/2013

My first thought was Mark McGrath, but his wife isn't famous.

by Anonymousreply 209/06/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 409/06/2013

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 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.

Why was Mark McGrath your first thought, r2?? He is so masculine. Or are you being funny?

Jesus, Mark McGrath seems masculine to you?

by Anonymousreply 2409/06/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2509/06/2013

What did he do to his face? He looks like a butch lesbian with makeup on now. I have no words.

Mark McGrath looks just like Kate Clinton now!

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.

by Anonymousreply 2809/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3109/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3209/07/2013

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...

by Anonymousreply 3309/07/2013

We will find out soon, especially if there is a camera crew following the singer around.

by Anonymousreply 3409/07/2013

RIck Ocaseck is a very good guess - he looks like a woman already.

by Anonymousreply 3509/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3609/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3709/07/2013

Billie Joe Armstrong

by Anonymousreply 3809/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3909/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4009/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4109/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4209/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4309/08/2013

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.

Marilyn Manson?

by Anonymousreply 4409/08/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 4509/08/2013

Presumably, he was arrested for whatever activity motivate the police raid, R45 -- not the fact that he was wearing women's lingerie.

by Anonymousreply 4609/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4909/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5009/08/2013

Scott Stapp?

by Anonymousreply 5109/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5209/08/2013

Wow so timberlake is finally making the transition huh.

by Anonymousreply 5309/08/2013

And wtf is up with Steven Tyler's tits?! He looks like my sister.

by Anonymousreply 5409/08/2013

The answer is Gavin Rossdale. Come on, queens. This was easy.

by Anonymousreply 5509/08/2013

Read upthread R55. Gavin just impregnated his wife, so obviously he is not on hormones or looking to transition.

by Anonymousreply 5609/08/2013

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!)

by Anonymousreply 5709/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5809/09/2013

How about Liam Gallagher from Oasis? His wife is a Canadian pop star.

by Anonymousreply 5909/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 6009/09/2013

Tyler Hanson or one of the ex LFOs

by Anonymousreply 6109/09/2013

Anothet vote for Scott Stapp.

Although Dave Grohl seems plausible.

Josh Homme by any chance?

by Anonymousreply 6209/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 6309/09/2013

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.

Rob Thomas?

Billy Corgan?

by Anonymousreply 6509/09/2013

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.

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?

by Anonymousreply 7009/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 7109/09/2013

I don't think Billy Corgan is married. Good guess though.

by Anonymousreply 7209/09/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 8509/11/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 8609/11/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 8709/11/2013

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.
