She seems to have been a genuinely nice person, whose wealth and fame didn't completely ruin her.

 

Nah.

Cilla Black - she should be shot - quite possibly one of the most unpleasant individuals I have ever come across.

 

i heard a similar thing about ms Black. Maybe she doesn't like flying. Or maybe she is just a brassy b!tch whose done well from a poor up bringing and forgets where she came from.

 

Does anyone have anything good to say about Ms Black? There are several threads on DS asking about the rudest celebrities people have ever met and Cilla's name comes up more than anyone else and none of it is positive, in fact she sounds thoroughly vile and unpleasant.

 

Is Cilla Black the most unpleasant person in showbiz?

 

You don't talk to Ms Black.

Ms Black will talk to you.

Ms Black only sits in 1A

Ms Black will have some champagne now.

Ms Black talks through a personal assistant.

 

Vile bitch, rumour has it she was banned from BA for a while because of her attitiude to staff and excessive demands about seating.

 

Totally agree,disgrace of a human being.No manners what to speak of.Full of own self importance,and this is from personal experience.

 

Wasn't there a story some years back about a contestant on Blind Date who went public to claim that ol' Cilla had virtually reduced her to tears via nasty, dismissive behaviour once the cameras stopped rolling?

Being born in the mid-fifties, Cilla was part of my childhood, along with the Beatles and all the other great pop groups that came from Liverpool and other places in the UK in that wonderfully entertaining decade. I feel lucky to have grown up knowing all those singers and all those bands.

 

Her later TV work didn't particularly interest me but you have got to admire her for her longevity and ability to connect with so many different generations. She seems to have been a genuinely nice person, whose wealth and fame didn't completely ruin her.

 

Totally agree.

 

Watched the programme with Sheridan Smith depicting her life and it did her justice I think.

Whereas someone saying someone should be shot is clearly all sweetness and light

Heard form whom? "brassy b!tch"? Obviously the opinion of someone so sexist deserves mucho respect

Yep they do have good things to say

 

Could that be cos she is in the news? What kind of person feels the need to go on a thread and comment on how rude a 'celebrity' is? Get over it

 

 

Is Cilla Black the most unpleasant person in showbiz?

 

I think I'd put Jimmy Saville and Rolf Harris waaaaaayyyy ahead. What a cretinous question

 

Vile bitch, rumour has it she was banned from BA for a while because of her attitude to staff and excessive demands about seating.

 

More sexism..really deserving of respect

 

It's very sad what you get back if you search Google for Cilla Black and BA. I don't know if she was ever banned form BA but if she was I'd expect there to be more on the net than a bunch of people going on about a rumour that she was

 

Interestingly her chauffeur was interviewed on 5Live the other day and only had good things to say about her; I'd rather listen to him that someone who claims to know how he feels

 

It would be astonishing if in here 50 odd years in showbiz she hadn't ******ed off a few people and contestants etc

 

Wasn't there a story a few years back that Orville the Duck was once banned from BA and all other airlines for snorting cocaine in the loo on a flight and being rude to the cabin crew....hence his song "I wish I could fly"

 

Some people need to get a life (maybe I'm one of them after posting the above)

What a cretinous question

 

What a disgusting display of ableism.

 

Cretinism is a condition of severely stunted physical and mental growth due to untreated congenital deficiency of thyroid hormones (congenital hypothyroidism) usually due to maternal hypothyroidism.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cretinism

 

noun

1.

(old-fashioned) a person afflicted with cretinism

2.

(offensive) a person considered to be extremely stupid

 

Shameful. :mad:

 

 

I like this story related over several tweets by a woman whose ex was told it by someone who worked with Cilla (yes, I know)...

 

One day after a TV gig, she was being driven home and asked the driver to stop at a supermarket and get her some salmon for dinner.

 

The supermarket had almost closed and the seafood counter had been packed away.

 

He went in and begged the person packing up the fish counter to get a piece of salmon from the back for him.

 

He said it was for Cilla and she'd string him up if he didn't go back with it.

 

After some time he got back into the car with a piece of salmon and gave it to her.

 

Cilla: "I meant a tin of salmon you c***!"

What a shame we can't have a thread where people get to pay their respects to a talented singer and great entertainer without a couple of people being disrespectful and abusive.

 

There used to be a time when Brits were known for being respectful and polite. Nothing respectful, polite or even intelligent in abusing someone who has sadly lost their life.

 

RIP Cilla.

Oh, get over yourself. She was not a talented singer, she had great songs at her disposal but if you compare, for example, Dionne Warwick's performance of some Bacharach and David songs with that screeching haridan's caterwauling, you'll see what a poor singer she actually was.

And as for this 'respectful' baloney, why should people feel obliged to be respectful towards someone that they consider to be a pretty foul human being? This is a thread about Cilla Black, it's not in that RIP section they have on here, her family won't be reading (cue JA asking how I can be sure of that )so why is it so awful for someone to state what they think of her. Rather than being known for 'politeness', I'd much rather be known for not cowtowing to celebrity and blindly praising the barely adequate. There's certainly nothing intelligent about that.

There's nothing intelligent about slagging off a person who has just died Mr.Jobsworth.Please enlighten us when Cilla Black actually personally abused you.Cilla Black was massive in the 60s and had a unique voice.

Indeed Twitters. I'm not sure why people feel the need to continue the argument beyond one post citing your point of view (or even post anything) on a thread that is clearly designed to pay respect. She might not have been 100% cheerful all the time (who is?) but she clearly brought a lot of happiness to a lot of people.

Ooh, Jobsworth. You've really got me there. Stunning.

 

It's got f all to do with whether Black has personally insulted me or not. People have come on here praising her, I came on here and criticised her. I never claimed that I was being intelligent insulting her, I said that kowtowing to celebrity and fawning over someone, then criticising any voices of dissent was not intelligent.

So what? Doesn't make her a decent or talented person.

Point (maybe) taken regarding my 2nd post on this thread but subsequent posts have generally been regarding this belief that respect should automatically be granted to the deceased. Why? To me, it just seems ridiculous. I would never go to one of her relatives, or on a fan site and state my opinions on her as a person or singer but I don't see why people on here need to get so upset about a dissenting voice. It's not like they were her friend. Where do you draw the line deciding who must be respected and who can be criticised? It's like after Thatcher's death when The Mail started having a go at people for metaphorically dancing on her grave, yet printed the most vile stuff following Michael Foot's death a year or so previously.
