MARILYN MONROE~Ella Fitzgerald wanted to play at Mocambo, a very popular club in the but they wouldn’t book her because she was black. Marilyn Monroe called the owner & said she would sit at the front table every night Ella sang. And she did.
On Ella. She was strong, she was smart, she was the most talented, and she never let the vices that took everyone else down touch her. She's one of my biggest heroes. Also, this picture rocks. Beverly Hills 1988 by Annie Leibovitz
Marilyn Monroe with Ella Fitzgerald at the the Mocambo. A popular Hollywood night club at the time. That would not book Ella because of segregation. Marilyn told the manager that she would reserve a front row table every night Ella performed there.
I dunno, I guess Tyson is precious enough to make Ella some cool mechanized book with little carved pictures of their adventures like he did with Percy's shield. Ella and Tyson. I'm so done with this xD They look freaking incredible!
