My favourite pop singer as you all know, the late Dusty Springfield who I started this blog for has said a lot of both wise, sad and upsetting things. I therefore thought I’d give you some quotes. These quotes I think really capture her and all that was her, feeling misunderstood, being an outsider, her mental illness and her lovelife. This is quoted said by Dusty according to articles about her.
Some quotes from her about her lovelife:
”My sexuality has never been a problem to me but I think it has been for other people.”
”I have tried sex with both men and women. I found I liked it.”
Some quotes from her about her mental illness:
”I just decided I wanted to become someone else… So I became someone else.”
”My affections are easily swayed and I can be very unfaithful.”
”I was a nothing kid. Not particularly good. Not particularly bad.”
”I’d love to retouch my whole life.”
”It’s marvellous to be popular, but foolish to think it will last.”
”Sometimes you have to let people down in order to get on, particularly in showbusiness.”
”A lot of people say I’m bent, and I’ve heard it so many times that I’ve almost learned to accept it.”
”I’m the most misunderstood, misquoted person I know, honestly.”
I think that says a lot about her.
I’ll end this update with a memory I have. In 2008 (I think it was 2008 at least) I was in Las Vegas watching ”Legends”. It was amazing. In Legends Katy Setterfield plays Dusty Springfield and she does it uncredible. When Katy sang ”You don’t have to say you love me” I almost started crying. What a moment. It was such a fantastic evening and actually the first time I really fell for Dusty. Since then I’ve read all I can find about her and find I like her even more, even though she had done mistakes and wasn’t a perfect person. Her music is like a gift from heaven. Love it!
But being in Las Vegas watching this show was such an experience. I even tried gambling. Never done that before. Next year I’m going their again to gamble. It was really funnyt. I thought I’d read a bit more about casino here. Great website were you can learn a lot about freespins, get reviews about the online casinos and how to play if you’re interested.
Have you got any wishes about what you want me to write? Something extra aboit Dusty you would like to know?
Always smiling at pictures, but not always smiling inside…
