4th of July

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

My favorite 4th of July tradition that no one else knows about:

Blind Item reals from a new one is posted/revealed every 15 minutes. This is like the Super Bowl Sunday for gossip-ophiles.

That's how I roll.

Maybe the Most Intriguing Blind Item Ever- Revisited

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter was recently added to my links in the margin because it's a doozy. A while ago I posted that this site released answers to nearly all of their blind items. As luck would have it, the one blind item that was not answered was the most intriguing.

Firstly, here is a link to the (lengthy) blind item
. It's too big to do justice by summarizing, so I suggest reading it for yourself. The nuts and bolts of it is that around 2001 a VERY famous pop musician wasn't who we thought she was. She had a separate woman doing her vocals for her on her albums and even did the voice for all of the stars lip-synched concerts. The woman who did the actual singing was paid hush money and was fun with the arrangement until the payments stopped. That's when she went to this blogger with her story.

So that story was put on his blog a few years ago, and since it's the third anniersary of his blog, he's been adding a new clue each day of the week. You can see Monday's clue was added at the end of the story I linked. Tuesday's clue can be found here. Wednesday's isn't out just yet.

It's also worth noting that this blog has the best user comments of any blog ever. Everyone tries to make a guess or put forward their rationale for why they think their answer is correct, and they leave behind the usual offensive comments or "First!!!!".

So far the leading candidates for the identity of the pop star among the commenters seem to be either Britney Spears or Jennifer Lopez, but plenty other names have been bandied about.

That's how I roll.
