Mindy McCready found dead...

R.I.P.


Before the drugs and booze, before the two suicides within a month of each other, there was a singing career. This is my favorite song of hers.

That is very sad, especially as she had a six year old and a ten month old.

Not my style of music, but I always thought she was beautiful. What a shame...

Oh dear. Apparently she killed her dog too! RIP Mindy...

And people are actually blaming Roger Clemens for this...

Huh. I wonder how that's supposed to work...

I hadn't been familiar with any of her recent troubles, and really only knew her for the music video for "Maybe, Maybe Not".... which was over a decade ago. Never occured to me that she's been out of the limelight for that long.

What! Well I guess it's a good thing the children weren't in the house.

Here you go.

And my thoughts on that: Whatever the circumstances of that specific time, blaming everything she has experienced since then on Clemens does seem a bit of a stretch.

She was the opening act for George Strait one year in Minneapolis. That was a good concert, nice view in front if you know what I mean. Too bad she went all batshit crazy.

Re: Mindy McCready found dead...

Never heard of her.

For a second I thought it was that Mindy woman from "Austin Powers" and I was sad. Glad it wasn't.

No idea who this was.
