Carly Simmon suffered a severe stutter at just 8 years old. A psychiatrist tried unsuccessfully to cure Simon’s stuttering. Instead, Simon turned to singing and songwriting. “I felt so strangulated talking that I did the natural thing, which is to write songs because I could sing without stammering, as all stammerers can.”
Everyone who knows Janis Joplin is well aware of her infatuation for Southern Comfort. Southern Comfort enjoyed having an unofficial representative in Janis and thanked her for their free advertising by sending her a lynx coat!
Part of Amy Winehouse’s edge was due to her noticeable tattoos. She had 14 known tattoos, including ‘Daddy’s Girl’ on her left arm for her father, and the name ‘Cynthia’ on her right arm in tribute of her Jewish grandmother.
Not only is Cher an incredible singer and performer, but she also starred in multiple films over the years. She turned down the opportunity to play Thelma Dickenson in Thelma & Louise because she had her heart set on starring in the 1990 film, Mermaids!
Before Heart’s ’80s resurgence, Nancy Wilson had a non-speaking role in the 1980s cult classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High . She played the “beautiful girl in a car” and had no dialogue, but did manage to marry the screenwriter, Cameron Crowe in 1986.
In November of 1981, Whitney Houston was one of the first African American women to appear on the cover of Seventeen magazine. Whitney was not only known for her incredible voice but her striking looks. She loved the camera!
