Celebrity X no. 21

Celebrity X no. 21

Hi everybody! It’s finally time for a new Celebrity X article. This celebrity’s name is going to be a little harder to guess than those of Sarah Jessica Parker and Patrick Swayze from our previous posts. I don’t know about you but I think this face is so adorable (yeah, there’s a new girl writer on Celebrities than and now and things are gonna change..) I’m sure you were able to see past the soft girlish features and figure out that we’re dealing with a boy, i.e. a man by now. As singer of a world famous hard rock band this celebrity was the heartthrob of many a teenage girl in the late eighties and early nineties. I know that if you’re like me you’re probably wondering right about now how this sweet innocent boy could end up in a hard rock band. Not that there’s anything wrong with hard rock, but he just doesn’t seem the type, does he? His real name was William Bruce, but he changed it to a name he also later used on stage. He kept the last name though. He was born to a very religious family and had a troubled childhood. As a teenager he became quite the rebel, earning the reputation of a  local juvenile delinquent. He soon fled his small hometown of Lafayette, Indiana and moved to Los Angeles hoping to start a successful music career. The band in which he was the lead singer reached stardom in the late 80s mainly on account of the song he had written to his then girlfriend. During his career he was known for his great live performances as well notorious lateness, getting on stage up to two hours later than scheduled which often caused riots. He eventually split with his former band members (the most popular of which is Slash) and the band stopped performing for several years.  His career followed a slow downwards spiral ending up in the release of the long-awaited album Chinese Democracy in 2008, which was not as successful as anticipated. Oh, and his name is an anagram for “oral s*x”. Did you guess yet?

This one is about a young girl, born in Nelsonville, Ohio, who became a successfull film, television, and theater actress and producer.. She is best known for her leading role in one of HBO’s comedy/drama series. I won’t tell you the title or the name of her role in the series ’cause that would just be too easy(as if it isn’t easy enough as it is, lol). All I’m going to say is that the whole show revolves around one word and that one is… I won’t tell it, it would be too easy.. I guess this is not enough for you to figure out who it is. OK, I’ll tell you one  fact.. She played the same role in the 2008 feature film based on the show and the film was abouth something & THE CITY.. Hehehe, ok put 2 and 2 together.
