her new album cover.
If you think the airbrushing is a bit... extreme... our bella donna has a history
of that. Here is Rock A Little, released 25 years ago:
I think I actually prefer the new Secret Love single cover...
which calls to mind an image used for her first solo LP back in 1981...
She is nothing if not consistent.
Lastly, I want to quote from a post I did in 2010 about Stevie:
She is an enigma. We don't have stars like this anymore. So original and smart and artistic. We have a few new ones, Florence Welch being the obvious one. You just know Florence reads all sorts of weird books and likes pre-Raphaelite paintings, etc. Rufus Wainwright grew up loving opera. Little Boots? What the hell moves her soul? Sometimes I feel like, as time goes on, we idolize people who don't have any curiosity. They don't have influences other than really shallow ones like, sorry, Madonna. And it's a vague kind of influence. Nothing MOVES them emotionally. Really, what moves Ke$ha? Drugs, Jack Daniels and cock?
