Hollywood Legends : Iconic Female Celebrities: Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962) (Guest Post)

Today, Marilyn Monroe would be 90 years old, but the diva passed away in 1962. Many people know her celebrity persona, and she still is viewed as an icon of beauty and femininity. But let’s take a look at her off screen personality. Here are seven (7) biographical facts. 

   

This marvelous timeline of photographs ~ "A picture of Marilyn for every year she was alive, 1926-1962." ~ was shared on Google Plus by Divine Riggio : Vintage Photographies of Human Life 







1. Marilyn Monroe was born June 1, 1926, Los Angeles, California.



2. Ms. Monroe feared that viewers would think of her as about a "frivolous fool", so she studied and rehearsed earnestly at various acting studios.



3. Despite the fact that Marilyn Monroe is considered a sex symbol, she confessed in her diaries: "I was always very physically clamped. I have always been sure that something is wrong with me."




Image credit:  Another photo shared by Divine Riggio on G+ ~ "A teenage Norma Jeane, later known as Marilyn Monroe. Circa 1940." 


 



4. Marilyn Monroe loved to read. More than 400 books were in her personal library. She did not finish high school and felt the need to continue her education on her own, not only to quench her thirst for knowledge but in order to be on par with others who were blessed to complete a formal education program.








5. Before becoming a famous actress, she worked at an aircraft factory, during the World War II. Her job was crucial, She was checked the serviceability of parachutes. One of the photographers, who was looking for "fresh faces" noticed her there. The rest, as they say, is history.



6. Marilyn Monroe ate very little and could spend an entire day drinking only orange juice. Yet she has never been skinny, according to today's “perfect size” standards (say size 5 by comparison to today's slim petite almost emaciated models who wear a size 2).







7. In order to become the wife of her third husband, Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism. She was fond of Arthur Miller and trust him a lot. It was his betrayal that completely undermined her faith in people.



Over half a century later, Marilyn Monroe is still revered as a Hollywood legend, an ideal American beauty / diva. Her popularity has not dwindled. It is a pity that her life ended up so early or to quote another diva, Sir Elton John, she was like a “candle in the wind”.

The Legend Bruce Lee (Nov 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973)

God bless the Internet and especially social networks, bloggers, and online writing communities. So there’s this really cool guy – Nathan Bernardo, aka NateB11 – and he is a loyal and devoted martial arts disciple. He knows a lot about MA and writes articles on the topic. Of course, in America, we know that the reason we know about kung fu, karate, and all that stuff is because the one and only Bruce Lee told US it exists and proved it by teaching US how it’s done! Bruce Lee departed this world in 1973 leaving behind a legion of adoring fans, some of whom would give birth to future admirers.  Legion!  Some of his fans – like my kids – hadn’t even been born yet!!  To this day, whenever information is published about this legendary martial artist, people just can’t resist taking a peek, to see if it reveals anything more about Mr. Lee that we did not know. Check out this HUB by NateB311.

If you have ever seen the popular film “Enter the Dragon” starring Bruce Lee, then you probably remember the scene where the old British gentleman meets with Mr. Lee in a garden to discuss recruiting him for a mission to catch a bad guy.  Did you know that the design of the garden where they had the meeting was based on principles of feng shui?

Movie Review : 'Mahogany' Taught the True Value of Being a Success

"Success is nothing without someone you love to share it with."


Agree or disagree?


There was once a time when Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams were an "item"; for movie couples that is. They had great onscreen chemistry but never a real-life romance.

They had a romantic relationship in the film Mahogany (1975).  A movie that is memorable for its really nice theme song and great fashion; especially that dress Ms. Ross wore in one of the scenes that looked like a rainbow. When it comes to fashion, beauty, and style though, in real life, Ms. Ross was and still is one of the best-dressed women in the entertainment business; onscreen and off. Click through to view that fabulous gown she's wearing in the photo for this September 2014 article:

Diana Ross : Still a 'Supreme' Performer

Nothing much to say about this motion picture that you can't look up on Wikipedia. That quote about success struck a chord with me though.  That's it!  That's my movie review.

Diana Ross : Still a 'Supreme' Performer

All of the talented Motown acts of the 1960's captured the interest of young America, but none more than three teenage girls known as 'The Supremes.' Starting out as a four girl act known as 'The Primettes' several years earlier, it seemingly took forever for 'The Supremes' to match the success of Motown's other big acts like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson & Miracles, and Mary Wells.

Are Secret Societies a Threat?

Did you hear?  Beyoncé and Jay-Z are members of the lluminati.

Uh huh. And this strikes fear in me because … ???  ... WHY?

Well at least now I get Ray Romano’s joke about the most powerful couple in America. :)  But Jay-Z and his lovely wife, Beyoncé (who should star in her own TV show as Wonder Woman or some other "Super Woman type". - You heard it here! I’m trying to get this idea circulating!) are probably laughing way harder than everybody else.

Read an article about so-called secret societies – Freemasons, Rosicrucian Order, Illuminati, etc.

Top 5 Secret Societies |Wizzley.com

This provides a wealth of material if anyone wants something to write about it. But to take these groups seriously? WHY?







  • Are they dangerous??


  • Because they have a secret??


  • Because they are secretive??


  • Because they might have also have a lot of money and possibly some influence on persons in high places and can change the course of the world??!!!! And you have no control over it?? 

Gimme a break! Who doesn’t have a secret?? 

Rich or poor. Between dreaming and having your own secrets, can’t nobody control you!! **** Hmmm … this is kind of an afterthought but … UM … Such type organizations could be a threat to the members. Everything being so hush hush - if a crime were committed, where would they go for justice? Maybe the Cosa Nostra probably holds court on the weekends. (O.o)

Vintage Moments in Entertainment History : Sophia Loren and Charles Aznavour

I collect vintage stuff.  That's why I joined this awesome online community.  Find more gems like the one below in Vintage, Posters &.. - Google+. They don't just share entertainment, celebrities pics, etc. They share really rare moments in history via vintage photographs you probably won't see anywhere else. Not all the photos are black and white, but the ones that are really add to that "moment in time" often captured by an unknown talented photographer.



Why do I like this photo so much?  For one thing, I'm loyal Sophia Loren fan.  I did a Top Ten List in one of my previous posts and included her in my collection of Iconic Female Celebrities.  Eh! Everybody knows Sophia Loren.  But the fact is, if it weren't for "The Truth About Charlie" movie* with Mark Wahlberg and Thandie Newton, I may have never known who Charles Aznavour was.  But I'm thankful.  His music is great for a romantic evening.  😍


* FYI.  That Wahlberg/Newton film was a remake of a classic old movie, "Charade", a 1963 flick which starred two of my favorite actors from back in the day - Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, which did not include songs by this popular French singer.  So the film remake actually added a nice touch!  Audrey Hepburn (1929 – 1993) is also on my list of Iconic Female Celebrities.  Love her too! 💟

My Top 10 List of Iconic Female Celebrities

In America, we love to apply the word “icon” to people who sort of serve as symbols or are symbolic of something much larger than themselves, and are representative of an ideal that we, as individuals, hope to achieve in life. It's almost as if these people are idols. Almost.




A better way to explain our usage of this term would be by sharing my first time hearing it applied to a well-known figure. My first time hearing the word used was a report where people were speaking of Lee Iacocca. What did this man do to have people call him an “icon”? He's an American businessman, in the automobile industry, who (based on my recollection of events) brought the Chrysler Corporation back to life. Evidently, because of his prowess as a business warrior, he stepped up, took the helm as CEO of ailing and failing business entity, revived it and steered to success. For accomplishing this impossible feat, people showered praises on him as if he were a god of the American automotive industry.


As time passed, the word “icon” started popping up everywhere and is especially used for entertainers, such as, Madonna. Why is she an icon? “Madonna could be considered one of the most successful women of all time.” (Quote source: Madonna: Icon (and Single Working Mother with Custody Issues) | The Huffington Post)


Another example? Beyoncé was selected as the 2016 CFDA Fashion Icon. (CFDA = Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc.)


Once read an article published at Listverse.com about Hollywood suicides. The full title of the article is “10 Iconic Actresses Who Tragically Ended Their Lives”. After reviewing the list of female celebrities, the facts presented about their deaths were indeed tragic, but describing the actresses as “iconic” kind of made me bristle. It didn't seem to jive with other people in the entertainment industry who were being described as “iconic”.


So! Decided to compile my own list of actresses who should be considered “iconic”. Nixed the requirement that that they had to have committed suicide.


Hmmm …? Now where would be the best place to start to find those sort of people very quickly? The iconic Life Magazine. Of course!



Here's my list of ten (10) female iconic celebrities (not all are actresses, but they are famous or recognizable). The parenthetical notes are my rationale or reasons why these women measure up to the criteria that sets them apart as icons.

The Beatles : Trivia and Interesting Tidbits About Members of the Fab Four

Fans love to latch on to info about The Beatles aka the Fab Four, no matter if it's current or old news.


The late John Lennon, original member of the Fab Four, known officially as The Beatles will always be a hot topic if you're discussing celebrity trivia , pop music history , etc. Linking back to an old post published a few months back sharing MY unofficial opinion of the unsuccessful musical career of Julian Lennon and connecting it to this link from The Guardian. Not that anybody in the Lennon family gives a hoot about my thoughts, observations or opinions. Not a hater, but the title of the article is a quote from Julian's step-brother Sean Lennon which perfectly summarizes the way I see him. LOL. 

Sean Lennon: ‘People only see me as the spoiled slacker son of John and Yoko’


People will always be curious about the lives of the offspring of music legends. You may not go looking for tidbits but when you see one, it's time for a conversation by the office water cooler. :)

Jackie Evancho - YouTube Channel

Just subscribed to this music channel. Yeah I'm late to the party.  Should have done it ages ago.  But better late than never!

This young lady got her first big break on "America's Got Talent". 

One of her performances that really impressed me was her singing a Sarah McLachlan song, "Angel", that I dare say is just as good as the original singer's performance. She was accompanied by David Foster on the piano. Magical! 

It is such a pleasure to see her continue to blossom and grow.  I know the mention of this flower likely provokes another cherished memory in your mind ("Sound of Music"), but it would not that far of a stretch to compare her to edelweiss






Here is another magical performance. It's on her album Awakening.

The Bahamas - Beautiful Beaches, Conch Shells and Mangos

Both my father and my husband are from Nassau, Bahamas, so I always like to say a little something about this beloved country at different sites that I write for. Rather than rehash the content of my various articles published elsewhere on the web, decided that in this bubble I would simply share the YouTube video clip which is the famous scene from the very first James Bond movie, "Dr. No", where James Bond (played by Sean Connery) sings a few words from "Underneath the Mango Tree"; and Honey Rider (played by Ursula Andress) was also singing that song while she was collecting conch shells on a beach in The Bahamas.



The video doesn't include the complete dialogue, but Honey said that she could get $50 for one shell in Florida!

Grew in Miami, Florida. "Dr. No" was released 1962. Often wonder what the market price for a conch shell is these days. Enjoy the video!
