|Sigourney about to rip John Turturro's arm off.|
Garden State Playmate at The Sexy Armpit- otherwise known as the lead singer of Blondie. She took off with a disco-rock aesthetic hit "Call Me," and blasted into her own punky, glammy campy form of rock 'n roll that's never been duplicated. She's covered calypso and helped put hip hop in the mainstream with "Rapture"- no joke- commercial radio wouldn't play that "fringe" music back in the day and neither would MTV. Black and white charts- cough, I mean "pop" and "R&B"- remain segregated, but she introduced millions of white kids to hip hop. For me, that led to Run DMC and Grandmaster Flash, and culminated in blasting NWA when I went to college in Newark, even though I looked like TweedleDee with a Wopfro back then. Anyway, back to Debbie- she was a Playboy playmate with a brain, and that wry grin that punctuates much of her music is her great appeal. I liked that she voiced Angel in the '80s rock cartoon ROCK 'N RULE (full review) and her roles in VIDEODROME and of course, John Waters' HAIRSPRAY - the original. With her silken voice and smart way of winking at the audience, her lyrics are deceptively simple and catchy. Between her and Chrissie Hynde, I'd give her the crown of Queen of Rock 'n Roll.
|Sorry. I didn't notice her flagrant crack until just now.|
|The sexiest rock 'n roll girl ever.|
So who are your favorite tough broads?
