Confession Inachevee: the fabulous life of Marilyn Monroe

I recently came across Marilyn Monroe’s autobiography ( My Life) in the French version ” Confession Inachevee”, published by Laffont.
One can learn a lot by studying famous’ people’s biographies. I have always been fascinated with Marilyn Monroe. As a young girl, I wanted to be like her. In my eyes, she incarnated feminity and beauty to the fullest.
Norma Jean Morteson came from poor backgrounds, she has been from orphanages to orphanages, because her mom was unable to raise her. When her mom died, a friend of her, “aunt Grace” looked after the little girl and was officially her tutor. But aunt Grace didn’t have much money, so Norma had to go to different foster homes. In addition, Norma Jean had a a family history of mental imbalance. She never knew her father, who ( according to her), resembled Clark Gable ( Norma’s mom had a picture of her dad).
In the manuscript she left to Milton Greene, her friend and personal photographer, Marilyn Monroe depicts the world of Hollywood with a very analytic spirit and a lot of sincerity.
When you are changing your name, you are changing your destiny. Norma Jane was the symbol of unhappiness, being unwanted, being poor. Marilyn Monroe was the name of a glorious star.
What I have learnt from Marilyn’s words is that, no matter how our circumstances may look, if we keep our dreams alive, they will come true.
I have seen Marilyn in several movies. She had something more than sex appeal: she had a presence, something strong and emotional in her character.
Of course, she attracted a lot of jealousy. People are more less envious when you are ugly and intelligent. Beauty and cleverness combined scares them away.
She symbolizes beauty and wittiness. I recommend you her unachieved manuscript, because Marilyn will teach you a lot about life itself.

The Mystery Channel & J Dilla/ The Dillaship

The notorious Detroit DJ Butter introduced me into a new hip hop release that is entirely dedicated to J Dilla, one of Detroit’s most impressive producer. Some artists’ lives are cut short ( J Dilla died at the young age of 32 from lupus skin disease), but the perennity of their consistant work is our beautiful heritage; their music and legacy will live on forever. J Dilla is one of these guys who will relive Detroit from its ashes.
Ready to listen to The the DillaShip?
Please be all ear, be prepared from some tremendous, genuine hip hop!
Numerous Detroit talents have participated to this beautiful piece of art that enlightens Dilla’s genius. Some catchy beats will let you enter into a hot atmosphere. Meet at the Detroit club, enjoy the astute punchlines and syllable plays. The original instrumental background, a combination of light and dark keyboards, a crazy mix of catchy beats…nod your head to the track, meet hip hop at its purest state, where vocals work together with syllable smashers.
I am truly impressed with the numerous Detroit icons who participated to put together this beautiful and authentic piece of good rap like Proof’s former collaborators 5 ELA, Bareda aka Mr Wrong, the amazing vocalist and Bizarre collaborator Monica Blaire, just to name a few.
The music will take you into a magical universe where artists truly give all they have for the greatest pleasure of the listeners. I liked the ‘Detroit ghetto atmosphere’. Not only does the Dillaship present some excellent hip hop, it also brilliantly combines it with an amazing funky/ soul touch.
True hip hop lovers, have a listen! I definitely recommend you The Dillaship. While mainstream hip hop seems to have lost it, some genuine underground hip hop artists will know how to keep your passion for the music alive.
