Billie Holiday photographed by Bob Willoughby (1952)

Billie Holiday. A woman with a traumatic childhood, an unloving family and was forced into prostitution. She used her talent and sang her way to fame. Loved for her individual style and phrasing she became the queen of blues recognised for her signature mechalcholic ballads. Her life was cut short after several abusive husbands and an addiction to drugs. The worls has never been the same. #womenwhochangedtheworld

She has consoled me through heartache and heartbreak for most of my life. Thank You Billie.

Don't read into the billie holiday lyrics. I just like her, that's all. I'm single. I'm single until a man actually shows up to mingle.
