I first encountered London born Samantha Fox - as probably most people in America did - when her pop song "Touch Me (I Want to Be Dirty)" hit the charts. It was followed not long after by "Naughty Girls Need Love Too."
Well, for a red blooded teenage boy - these songs - and the gorgeous lady who sang them - was just what the doctor ordered.
She was cute and curvaceous - and unafraid to dress accordingly. In fact, she became famous because her parents submitted lingerie photos of her to a contest - and she came in 2nd out of 20,000 entrants. This led to her appearance as one of the notorious "Page 3" girls in the Sun tabloid in England. She was eventually voted the most popular Page 3 girl ever. She then moved into pop music.
My very favorite of her songs was actually a cover of one of Dusty Springfield's hits - "I Only Want to Be with You."
And let's just pop that video right on in here...
In recent years Samantha Fox has come out as gay, and is in a civil union with her manager Myra Stratton. I wish her every happiness, but I'm kind of glad I only found this out recently - teen me would have been devastated!
I'm still a fan of the lady and her music - check out some Samantha Fox when you get the opportunity!
|In recent times - still lovely.|
Until next post - you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
