MARIANNE FAITHFULL GOT WHAT SHE WANTED – AND MORE

Back in the swinging 1960’s London scene, society girl and singer Marianne Faithfull was almost as famous as The Rolling Stones. The “As Tears Go By” singer was Mick Jagger’s beautiful girlfriend and every female wanted to look like her. She was the inspiration for Stones’ songs like “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Wild Horses.” Her perfect life degenerated into a mire of drug excess, heroin addiction, alcoholism, arrests, living on the streets, and health problems. After numerous visits to rehab, the gravel-voiced singer continued to record and put together a successful cabaret act. (She also wrote 3 books!) Marianne miraculously survived where many of her companions of the era did not. She’s 69 now and showed up at the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
