“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
This photo makes me kind of sad
why should it make you sad? experimentation with the human appearance is almost a human instinct and has existed for tens of thousands of years. only recently has it implied self-consciousness. it’s a cool illustration.

this might be the most beautiful photo in the world

“Lock yourself in a room doing 5 beats a day for 3 summers.
That’s a Different World, like Cree Summer’s.
I deserve to do these numbers.
The kid that made that
Deserves that Maybach
So many records in my basement
I’m just waiting on my spaceship…”
