Billie Holiday by Roy DeCarava in the Photographs Dept.

the incomparable Billie Holiday

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

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.

Billie Holiday was known for her bold presence, her tall physical stature. She emphasized this by wearing clothes that transfixed audiences in understated, purposeful ways. She loved a beautiful gown and accessorizing it perfectly.

Billie Holiday "good morning heartache, here we go again. Good morning heartache, your the one who knew me when. Might as well get used to you hanging around. Good morning heartache sit down." Love her.
