Some sad news today. Fifties icon, the fantabulous Bettie Page has died. She was 85. More notorious than famous, Bettie was pin up for the racy set. Bondage, whips - if it was outré - she posed for it; yet somehow, amidst all that potential sleaze, Bettie managed to maintain a sense of innocence and fun. Like I said – fantabulous! There's quite simply never been another like her, before or since.
She didn't have a very happy life, poor dear. Nor did she make any money off the millions of pictures still in demand today. Well…let's hope god has found her a peaceful place. Goodbye Bettie. You were quite a lady!
