Don't get me wrong, I owned the Thriller albumn in the 80's and as a kid liked the Jackson 5. But even I, who knows nothing about babies, knows you don't hang a baby over a ledge! My interest in Jackson wanned with what I saw as bizarre behavior and the balcony incident sealed the deal for me.
I'm disappointed that Farrah's coverage appears to have been cut short by the coverage of MJ. I was looking forward to the trip down memory lane with Farrah. I remember in my senior year of high school that a friend and I saw this ad in a magazine:
and we both instantly wanted hair like that. My friend was a blonde so she had an advantage and I believe she probably had a better stylist (they weren't called that at the time) but I had thickier hair with more of a natural wave to it. We both had something akin to "the Farrah". Here's mine (and I did it myself):
It's shocking to have TWO celebrity baby boomers die in the same day, especially since I am a baby boomer. I'm not listening to the radio or watching TV tonight because I am sick of hearing the theme song of the day - Thriller. I've even heard it on NPR!
While many people are honoring MJ tonight, and I have to admit that the "We Are The World" thing was phenomenal, I'm a little disappointed I'm not seeing more of Farrah. She made an impression on this young girl.
As silly or as trivial as it may sound, she brought glamour to me. I grew up teased and embarrassed about having red hair (I remember wanting to just be "normal") but having"my Farrah" sure changed the way people looked at this redhead - suddenly my hair was pretty and not wierd.
Oh and I should add the disclaimer that I am not a celebrity watcher normally. There are only a few that catch my attention and one of them was Ferrah. In fact, coworkers were talking about Jessica Biel one day and I thought she was the girl from Flashdance, LOL.
Thanks Farrah. Rest In Peace.
