Nina Simone, Piscean

Filed in Pisces

“…To put it in the mildest terms, while she was an original, gifted, sometimes magical performer and an outspoken champion of civil rights, she was also a maddening, egomaniacal, deeply disturbed, rude, abusive, colossal pain in the, er, neck…”

This is from a review of Princess Noire but it’s funny as nearly every biography of anyone Piscean – eg; Nancy Cunard – mentions the same bonkers Piscean dichotomy.

  1. Poor Nina. She tipped porridge in my lap after a press conference once because it wasn’t hot enough; regaled me because I ‘wasn’t black’ and ‘don’t know what it’s like to be oppressed’ (true, actually); and insisted on doing a pre-recorded radio interview from her bed while she lounged in her bathrobe having a pedicure. Craazzzyyy. But what a voice. RIP Miss Simone.

  2. I love her, saw her a while back live..she came across as a beautiful person. Then again we were paying customers, not white trash honkeys trying to get some dirt on the old dame. :)
