Billie Holiday: definitely a favorite of mine. I have no board that could encompass all of the amazingness that is Billie, however Crazy Coolness will have to do.

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.

...died to soon. The beautiful. The talented. The tragic...Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday, 1958 “I’ve been told that nobody sings the word ‘hunger’ like I do. Or the word ‘love.’ Maybe I remember what those words are all about. Maybe I’m proud enough to want to remember Baltimore and Welfare Island, the Catholic institution and the Jefferson Market Court, the sheriff in front of our place in Harlem and the towns from coast to coast where I got my lumps and scars, Philly and Alderson, Hollywood and San Francisco, every damn bit of it." - Lady Sings the Blues (1956)
