I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him - and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status - that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman - a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.” - Ella Fitzgerald

I don't think Marilyn was a heaux. I think people wanted to believe she was a heaux because of her not quite right dealings with JFK and Robert. Or maybe i'm giving her a pass because I like her.

We are loosing focus here- Marylin Monroe was no saint. And yes I'd rather learn more about some of the BLACK women who were underrated and overlooked during this time.... What's wrong with that?

Do you think women all over the country idolize this women because of what she did for Ella Fitz? NOPE not likely! Some people would rather LOVE and embrace an image and ideal that has NO reflection of them-
