MTV Diary of Aaliyah

I remember watching this when I was in high school and being so mesmerized by how effortlessly beautiful and sweet she was. I tried to emulate her unique look and got colored contacts of my own to offset the black hair I had at the time. I loved her style! She was definitely ahead of her time and was a trendsetter in her own right.

The struggle behind loving Marilyn Monroe

“The best of her, she thought was in my eye, therefore the hope she had, was with me..”

Ex husband of the iconic Marilyn Monroe speaks during a rare interview back in the 80’s about his memories of Marilyn and the time they spent together.

Even in death she remains a complete dichotomy of weakness and strength, poverty and wealth, confidence and insecurity. Many would say the allure behind Marilyn Monroe is her undeniable beauty and irresistible charm. I believe the tragedy was her inability to encounter true love and respect until after her untimely death.

It’s unfortunate that the world cannot appreciate such unique souls, until after they are taken from us.
