Sex goddess, actress and over-used art icon Marilyn Monroe was born on June 1, 1926.  I love seeing her immortalized in art because pretty much every image of her is iconic, but please artists – can you find another muse?!  Her candle burned out long before her legend ever did… we get it!

Also born today – singer Alanis Morissette, actor Morgan Freeman and singer Pat Boone.

    There is a general say that nice things doesn’t stay long, so as nice people. She was so cute a baby with a not so good childhood, because her mom was not well and she was left at the mercy of foster parents. There she had to undergo even sexual abuse. But, she overcome all those adverse situations of life to shoot to fame and became on of all times adorable sex symbols of Hollywood. But, destiny did not allow her to be tortured and exploited for long, she was called back bit early, I would say.
