Unlike many and most goths, I don't have a secret file on my computer wherein lies hundreds of photos of random internet goths, from which to draw inspiration. No. No, I'm much worse.
Being raised by hippies (surfer dude and "war is not the answer, maaaan" kinds), I was very much exposed to a lot of wonderful things as a child. Here's a brief overview on celebrities that have inspired me thus far.
Marylin Monroe is possibly one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century. Gracious, witty and beautiful, as well as voluptuous and intelligent, it is little wonder she has been such an inspiration. Despite her "barbie" exterior, she was a thoughtful and wise person, displaying an extremely clever woman's tongue.
Another iconic woman, Audrey Hepburn displayed the same sincere humour as Monroe. She was a brilliant actress, and had a wonderful singing voice. Her clothing style has never gone out of fashion - she was elegant, to say the least, and always had something to say. Armed with a cheeky smile, Hepburn always reminds me that one does not have to be outspoken to be witty.
I know, I'm awful. I'm just a bad person. But in her youth, Streisand was a beautiful young woman, with a powerful voice. Funny Girl showcased all her talent, being her first broadway play and her first film. Her portrayal of vaudevillian Fanny Brice was amazing, and she herself was quite beautiful. Her strong film presence and her amazing voice always stands as a firm reminder to me.

Australian musician and social commentator (she has been on Insight about twelve times - Insight is where they have a huge audience and discuss current affairs) Clare Bowditch is....stunning. A humanitarian and mother of identical twin boys, she is well-known for her amazing songwriting and her satirical on-stage humour. She's....just look at the woman. That'll explain it.

More of these posts soon! Probably. Maybe.
