Posted On November 15th, 2009 By Celebrity Biographies

Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was born as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu on August 27, 1910 in Skopje, Macedonia. Agnes was born to Nikola and Dronda Bojaxhiu and was the youngest of three children. She was actually born on the 26th of August, but she celebrated her birthday a day after, since that was the day when she was baptized. Her father was an admired merchant and was a member of the Skopje council. He was deeply involved in politics and her mother was a housewife.

Early Life

Agnes was startlingly independent, obedient and was deeply influenced by the missionary services in her childhood. Father Jambren Kovin, the pastor of her church, introduced her to the work being done by missionaries in India. She started living a religious life at the age of 18 and joined the Loreto Sisters of Dublin. She began her religious life in Ireland in the year 1928 and she learned to speak English while she was in Ireland. Later in November that year, she came to India to teach English in Calcutta (Now known as Kolkatta). She spent time as a teacher and a principle at the St. Mary’s high school in Calcutta. Agnes started her novitiate in an Abbey in Darjeeling in 1929 followed by the Abbey in the foothills of the Himalayas.

Vows

This is the time that a nun spends praying, studying and contemplating prior to taking her vows. Agnes took her first vows on May 24, 1931 of chastity, poverty and obedience. This is when she took her name from the patron saint of missionaries, St. Theresa and was called Teresa. Teresa took her final vows on May 14, 1937 promising to serve God for the rest of her life. She left the convent in August 1946, when the city was in terror and surrounded by riots. Sister Teresa was granted the permission to leave the Loreto Order of Nuns in 1947; however she left on August 16, 1948. She traveled all across Calcutta wearing a white saree with a blue border, sacrificing the Loreto Abbey. She learnt medical skills from Mother Anna Dengel in Patina, before servicing the slums. With her abilities, she was included in the Medical Missionary Sisters Group. While returning to Calcutta, she stayed at the St. Joseph’s Home with the Little Sisters of the Poor. She stayed here until December 21, 1948 and then went back to the slums.

The Journey

In order to demonstrate her dedication to Calcutta’s poor she decided to become an Indian citizen in 1949. Cardinal Pietro Fumoson Biondi sanctioned Sister Teresa’s order on October 7, 1950 and this is when she was called ‘Mother Teresa’. The Missionaries of Charities shifted to a new residence in the middle of 1953. She was given an unused building for the dying in 1954 and with the help of other nuns; she transformed the place into ‘The Place of the Immaculate Heart’. During this time, she was often criticized for wasting funds on the dead and dying; however she had great compassion for the victims of leprosy. Establishing the 35 acre ‘Town of Peace’ for the lepers was one of the biggest achievements of her life. ‘Missionaries of Charity’ formed groups to travel to different parts of India in 1960. Due to loads of contributions 30 centres were released outside Calcutta. In the same year, she travelled across the states of US and visited several other countries to collect donations. She gathered numerous ideas for her institution.

The ‘Missionaries of Charity’ gained permission by the Pope to work outside India in February 1965. They established the first home in Cocorote Venezuela and by 1970; they had set up ten houses around South America that would provide food, clothing and shelter to the poor. Pope Paul Vito requested Mother Teresa to open a house in Rome in the year 1968 and she also went to Tanzania. With the help of Ann Blankie, she founded the ‘International Association of the Co-workers’ in 1969.

Awards

Mother Teresa was awarded the first Pope John XXIII Peace Prize by Pope Paul VI in the year 1971. This included a small statue of Christ and $67000 as a charity. Mother Teresa brought her work to the US in 1971. She was given the ‘Joseph P. Kennedy Foundation Award’ in October by the Kennedy family, which consisted of $12000 as a charity for disabled children. Mother Teresa was also awarded the ‘Templeton Prize’ for Progress in Religion in 1973. She received a lot of awards for her work for the poor; however the highest of all was the Nobel Peace Prize On December 9, 1979 which included the prize amount of $190,000. Three months later, she was given the biggest award in India, called the ‘Bharat Ratna’ award. President Reagan awarded her the ‘Presidential Medal of Freedom’ in 1985.

Mother Teresa was given back to God On September 5, 1997 and her body was buried on September 13, 1997. Millions of people gathered around for her funeral ceremony. After her death, the Holy See began the beatification process, which is the third step towards canonization. Such a process requires documentation of some miracle performed by the intercession of the Late Mother Teresa.

She still remains alive in the form of her work and her teachings. She was a human being who was respected and admired all around the world. Mother Teresa stands out in billions today and shall always be remembered as one of the kindest human beings of all times.

Michael Jackson, the renowned ‘King of Pop’, a distinguished singer and songwriter was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana. He was born to an African-American family and his father’s name is Joseph Jackson. His father had given up his musical aspirations in order to run the family. He believed in the talents of his sons and moulded them into a musical group that was introduced in the sixties. The first of the Jackson family performers were his older brothers Jackie, Jermaine and Tito. Michael joined this group when he was five years old and turned out to be the lead vocalist in the group. He could convey complex emotions with ease and captivated the audiences with his depth. The oldest brother Marlon also joined the group shortly after, therefore evolved the group into ‘Jackson Five’.

Joseph Jackson is known to push his sons, behind the scenes and is also known to have become violent with them. Michael would spend hours with his brothers, rehearsing the act. To begin with, the group played local gigs, which brought them a lot of fan following. Their only compilation, ‘Big Boy’ along with ‘You’ve changed’, but failed to attract a lot of audiences. The group then started working on open acts for renowned R&B artists of the time such as the Pips, Gladys Knight, Sam & Dave and James Brown. It is also known that Berry Gordy was pretty impressed with the group and signed them to his exclusive label in the year 1968.

Works

By the age of 13, Michael Jackson launched a solo record in addition to his work with the group. He first made it to the charts with his song, ‘Got to Be There’ from the album with the same name. In 1972, Jackson got his first hit with the ballad about the rat. For several years thereafter, Michael Jackson and the group maintained a busy tour schedule; however the group broke all its ties with Gordy by the year 1975.

The group was renamed as the ‘Jacksons’ and they signed a new recording deal with the Epic Records. In 1978, the youngest brother Randy joined the group and Michael Jackson wowed the music industry in the year 1979 with his solo album called ‘Off the Wall’. The album was a rare combination of pop and funk and included the highly popular tracks of all time. The next album called ‘Triumph’ was the one that escalated Michael’s career to the highest peak with about one million copies of the album being sold then. Pairing up with Paul McCartney, Michael sang his first duet called ‘The Girl is mine’ in the year 1982. This song also appeared on his next album called the ‘Thriller’. This album contained 7 of the biggest hits.

In a special television show to honour ‘Motown’, Jackson performed a famous hit called ‘Billie Jean’, where he debuted his world-famous dance move referred to as the ‘moon walk’. He created this step himself and thereby choreographed his other dance sequences in the video ‘Beat It’. The horror-tinged video for the ‘Thriller’ became exceedingly popular and the album was nominated for 12 Grammy awards and ended up winning 8 of those. With the diversified talent displayed at the Grammys, he found recognition all around the world.

Around this time, he signed a $5 million endorsement with Pepsi-Cola and got badly injured while filming for this commercial. He got severe burns on his face and scalp in the year 1984 and this is the time when he started experimenting with plastic surgeries. His face, essentially his nose went through a lot of dramatic changes in the years to come. That year, he concluded his support to the Jackson group with the album called ‘Victory’. In the year 1991, Jackson released the ‘Dangerous’ featuring one of the biggest hits called ‘Black & White’. There was a huge controversy revolving around this song since Michael was seen with some sexually proactive actions. Thereafter he was seen performing at important events around the world including the Superbowl XXVII.

Controversies & Personal Life

Jackson was a quiet and a shy person off stage, he was never comfortable in front of the media and he rarely gave any interviews. In the 80’s, he created his own fantasy retreat called ‘Neverland’ in California. He kept amusement rides and exotic pets such as chimpanzees there. It almost seemed as if he was living his estranged childhood. It was also heard that he used to sleep in special chambers that would increase his life span and also lightened the colour of his skin in order to appear white.

He gave a rare interview to Oprah Winfrey in February, 1980 where he explained the change of the colour of his skin was due to a disease called ‘vitiligo’. He also detailed the abuse from his father in that show. A year later, there were allegations of child molestation against him. He was allegedly having sleepovers with young children in his ranch, but there was no particular evidence against him.

In 1994, he married Lisa Marie Presley and the couple was seen giving a joint interview with Diane Sawyer, however the union was pretty short lived. The couple got divorced in the year 1996 and it was believed that the wedding was a ploy to cover up his molestation charges. He married a nurse called Debbie Rowe, later that year and the couple had two children through artificial insemination process. Michael also has a third child from an unknown woman and the couple got divorced in the year 1999. He then took custody of all his children.

The Decline

His career started to decline from the year 1995 and he started facing criticism for his works. With the release of ‘Invincible’, more and more stories were published about his behaviour as compared to his talent. He was often seen in public wearing a surgical mask and covered the faces of his children under veils. In the year 2002, he seemed confused and disoriented on the stage at an MTV awards program. He was criticised for dangling his son over a balcony in Germany. In 2003, he received a severe blow on his reputation with the release of a documentary called ‘Living with Jackson’ by a British journalist called Martin Bashir. In 2004, he was arrested for molesting children, however all charges were dropped in the year 2005 and he moved to Bahrain for a while.

He sold the ‘Neverland’ ranch in the year 2008, after facing severe financial crisis. He also auctioned some of his home items and announced that he would be performing some shows in London as his ‘final curtain call’ to mark his retirement. The series was named ‘This is It’, which is now converted into a documentary by Columbia Pictures with his rehearsal footage. It was a speculation whether the singer would be able to handle a continuous series of 50 concerts.

Despite all the rumours and controversies surrounding him, 50 year old Michael Jackson remained a figure of great interest and was supposed to perform at the O2 arena on July 8th, 2009. He suddenly died of a cardiac arrest on June 25th, 2009. However, all the tickets of his shows were sold out within a few hours. After his death in Los Angeles, millions of music fans mourned his death all across the globe.

For the past four decades, Michael Jackson has been entertaining the world with his music and dance and he shall always be considered as an integral part of the contemporary culture.

Princess Diana Biography

Posted On April 25th, 2008 By Celebrity Biographies

Princess Diana

Princess Diana

A community body from the declaration of her nuptial alliance to Prince Charles, Diana hanged around the center of invariable media inspection in the United Kingdom and more or less the world up to and during her marriage, and subsequent to her divorce. Her unexpected death in a car accident was tagged along by an unprompted and long-drawn-out show of municipal bereavement. Present-day responses to Diana’s existence and inheritance have been assorted but a well-liked attraction with the Princess continues, and conspiracy theories about her decease are at this time the subject of an inquisition.

Early Life

Diana Spencer was the youngest descendant of Edward John Spencer. The praiseworthy Diana Frances Spencer weighed up to seven pounds and twelve ounces when she was born on July 1, 1961. Her father publicized at the time when she was born that she was nothing less than a “wonderful bodily sample.” She was the third existing child of her parents. During her parents’ sensibly unfriendly split-up in 1969. Thereafter Diana’s mother took her and her younger brother to survive in an accommodation in London’s Knightsbridge, where Diana attended a local day school. The same year during Christmas, the Spencer children went to rejoice with their father and he consequently rejected to permit them to come back to London and their mother.

As an adolescent girl she acquired her studies at the same time as she was attending the school in Riddlesworth Hall- Diss, Norfolk. This is where she got in essence what we get at our simple elementary schools. Just about the age of thirteen in 1974 she went as a resident to West Heath, in Sevenoaks, Kent. Despite the fact that she was studying there, she illustrated talent as a instrumentalist, dancing and home science. Besides, she was once awarded for the girl giving the greatest help to the school and her fellows. In the year 1977 she left West Heath and went to complete her school at the Institute Alpin Videmanette in Rougemont, Switzerland. In the year 1978, she left school and moved to Coleherne. There she took up a job of watching a child for an American couple and turned out to become a kindergarten teacher at the Young England school on Pimlice, London.

Charitable Work

It was the February 24th, 1981 that changed her life forever. Her commitment to Prince Charles, the successor to the British throne, was declared. They were wedded in Saint Paul’s church on July 29, 1981. The formal procedure was globally broadcasted. People all across the globe jingled into the stunning day when Princess Diana was married into one of the most authoritative families in the world. The youthful Princess of Wales without endorsement came of age when she was twenty- six years old, wedded for almost six years, and the mother of two young sons. That very moment happened to be the turning point in her life for the mere reason that she became involved with AIDS. She dealt with a subject that was shunned by a majority of British families and all of a sudden she turned into a responsible woman. In April, 1987, she opened Britain’s first officially built ward for the AIDS sufferers in the London’s Middlesex hospital. She shocked everybody in Britain when she visited the AIDS patients without any protective wear. She could be one of the first individuals in the world to break the notion that AIDS spreads by a touch. A lot of people until today believe that the princess of Whales shouldn’t have been involved with something as sensitive as AIDS. The Buckingham Palace was in total rejection to the extent that some of the Queen’s private advisors opposed the princess and condemned her for her act. The advisors also brought their argument that AIDS was something that happened to homosexuals and drug addicts. Diana, despite all these oppositions remained focussed on her caused and brought about a lot of societies to work for them. She openly told the world how AIDS was caused to unborn babies through their mothers. The advisors forecasted that all these acts might ruin her chances of becoming a future queen. Princess Diana was the noble supporter of seventy separate charities and had a chaotic work agenda to keep up with all of them simultaneously. Diana can under no circumstances relax on these occasions. Regardless of how she feels as a princess, she had to show her interest. It was more of a duty to be followed by her and well, that’s what she did.

Distressing Divorce

During the early years of their marriage, Diana and Charles were often seen to be openly demonstrative; by 1986, their time away from each other and aloofness when together were noticeable. The 1992 version of Andrew Morton’s biography of Diana exposed the tale of Charles’ extended romance with Camilla Parker Bowles, and suspected that Diana had made a number of suicide attempts. By December, the duo, apparently with the permission of the Queen and discussion with government officials, had decided to a lawful partition, however denying all plans for a divorce.

On the other hand, by the year 1996, dueling TV interviews by both Charles and Diana, informative snaps, and progressing disgrace treatment by the journalists, it was obvious that a divorce was about to happen. Diana pronounced her conformity to a divorce in February, shocking the Queen, who didn’t know anything about such an announcement.

The divorce was concluded in August of 1996. Agreement terms allegedly incorporated about $23 million for Princess Diana, as well as $600,000 per year. She and Charles would in cooperation be vigorous in their sons’ lives. She sustained to reside at Kensington Palace, and was legally recognized to carry on the title “Princess of Wales” but was no longer permitted the “Her Royal Highness” tag. Along with her divorce, she gave up a majority of her charities and limited herself to working with the five most important projects such as homelessness, ballet, cancer hospital, children’s abode, leprosy and AIDS of course. The same year, she became actively involved in the campaigns to ban land mines. She visited a lot of countries across the globe and became extremely popular in countries other than Great Britain.

In the year 1997, she was romantically allied with the 42 year old playboy named Emad Mohammed al-Fayed, also nicknamed “Dodi”. He was the son of the very famous billionaire “Mohammed al-Fayed”. Princess Diana was spotted with Dodi at the Ritz hotel in Paris and soon after they met with an accident. They were accompanied by Dodi’s family driver and his body guard. They were being followed by a huge media group and ended up crashing in a tunnel. Princess Diana was declared dead in the early hours of August 31st.

A huge mourning followed after her death the following morning. There was a huge procession in Britain and her popularity could be witnessed to the extent that there was a shortage of flowers all over. She was buried in the Spencer family estate and with that the fairy tale named “Princess Diana” ends here!

You will always be loved and remembered “Princess Diana”!!!

Christopher Columbus Biography

Posted On April 15th, 2008 By Celebrity Biographies

Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus is that individual who holds the credit for bringing two unknown worlds close to each other. He is the navigator who sailed west of the Atlantic Ocean in search of a direct route to Asia but accidentally ended up discovering the Americas.

Early Life

There is an ongoing argument over the place and date of birth of Christopher Columbus, however, it is widely accepted that he was born in Genoa, Italy around the year 1451. His father’s name happened to be Domenico Colombo. His father worked as a weaver and his mother was named Susanna Fontanarossa. Besides, he had three brothers whose names were Bartolommeo, Giovanni Pellegrino and Giacomo. A lot of information about Columbus’ childhood is not available and hence all that we can rely on are his writings. It was also concluded from one of his journals that he had first gone to the sea at an early age of ten years. Christopher spent most of his childhood weaving with his father and thereafter he turned out as a sailor across Mediterranean. His younger brother Bartholomew was an expert chart maker and that’s the reason Christopher is also known as one of the good chart makers of that age. Christopher’s early discoveries include that of Lisbon around the year 1476. That age was usually referred to as the “golden age of Portuguese exploration”. He was then engaged as a sugar buyer in the islands of Madeira, Cape Verde and Azores. On his way he met several navigators and pilots and he was amused by the fact that they all believed that there were islands existing far west. He paid his tribute to his native country but he never took up any citizenship and remained a Genoese all his life. In 1479, he married Dona Fillipa Perestrelloe Moniz.

At the same time as he reached thirty one years of age, he became a master sailor and he happened to be motivated by a number of people of the same profession. His brother was one of those who accompanied the ship during the discovery of Cape of Good Hope. Christopher was one of those who believed that some land was to be discovered when sailed across the West. A lot of attempts were made before this by sailors to find lands in the west, but none of them succeeded. Columbus was unique and that’s the only reason he was persistent enough and stuck to his plan for realizing his dream.

The Darker Side

The American media portrays Columbus as a good and a humble Christian, however, a lot of accounts prove that Christopher was the one to only preach the good word but hardly followed it himself. In one of his private diaries, he believed that the world will end completely in the year 1650. Christopher in company with the other Spaniards often placed bets as to who could slice the Native American in exactly two halves. Such acts were passed to the next generation as well. His son Ferdinand wrote a book in order to scare the Native Americans called “Indians and Christians”.

In addition, Christopher strongly supported slavery and there are a number of places in his narratives that prove that he had put the Native Americans to work in the mines and plantations of himself as well as his followers. Such is an act of clean cruelty and devastating unawareness. Thus it wouldn’t be wrong to conclude that the American perception of Columbus as a person is false. Scores of contemporary historians believe that most of his discoveries were a birth of slavery and yet, such reviews are never exposed in text books. We happily celebrate Columbus Day every year in memory of such a person since the year 1792. He is indeed the American hero today, but do we all have enough evidence to prove that?

Voyages and Theories

Christopher was an intelligent individual. He never claimed that his idea of sailing to the west was original, as a matter of fact; Christopher was a strong believer of science. He flipped over all the knowledge that was collected through a number of years. He worked out a number of theories to help him in his navigation. During the Greek and the Roman times, it was believed that there was a huge water body that connected Europe and Asia. Hence one could ideally sail from east to west and vice versa.

Christopher’s ideas about the size of the globe and the distance between Asia and Europe were based on pure calculations illustrated in the geographical manuscripts of the second century. Unfortunately, his calculations were not as accurate as he thought them to be and his discovery of the Americas is a proof to that. He actually believed that he had successfully reached Asia and celebrated his success only to realize how wrong he was.

With every progressing voyage, Christopher decided to seek the royal patronage and with some extra efforts, the Portuguese kingdom had supported the explorations for more then a century. Thus all discoveries across the Atlantic were Portuguese. It was also very well known that the King John II was personally responsible for sailing around Africa and hunting down the direct route to Asia.

To over stress the chronological importance of Christopher Columbus is complicated. Amazing transformations took place from his voyages. At the same time as he failed to come across a new-fangled way to Asia, Columbus introduced the western culture to the Europeans and that took history to a completely new era. His interactions with the Europeans are known as the important Columbian Exchange in the history of mankind. His voyages were followed with the exchanges in cultures, traditions and goods. Even American diseases such as malaria, small pox and measles were exchanged and that disrupted the Americans. A lot of growth took place on the agricultural front as well.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe has an ever-lasting impact on today’s civilization. She placed elevated values for herself and was a motivation to a lot of youthful individuals. Marilyn Monroe transformed Hollywood’s stance on women eternally. Her illustration, body, smile, and individuality are what are expected in a new actress or in the least the models at the moment. Nowadays, just because of Marilyn’s sky-scraping standards, it is a lot more intricate for women to make it large as an artist or model. She was something further than just a mere megastar or beauty queen, Marilyn Monroe was a universal sensation in her life span.

Early Life

Marilyn Monroe was born as Norma Jean Mortenson on June 1st, 1926, in the Los Angeles General Hospital. Before she was born, Marilyn’s father bought a motorbike for himself and immigrated north to San Francisco, dumping the people in Los Angeles. Marilyn grew up without knowing who her father was. She often spent time guessing and that was one of the regrets she had all her life. Her mother, Gladys Baker has several romantic encounters all through her life and that further confused her. Gladys gave her the name Norma Jean Baker after a boyfriend she had after Mortenson. Norma had a very troubled childhood. There was never ending poverty in the family. However, her mother had an extremely attractive personality and worked for the RKO studios as a film cutter. She suffered from a series of mental illnesses and hence little Norma had to be sent to foster homes while her mother was being cured in the medical institutions. In the year 1937, Norma Jean moved in with her mother’s friend. So that’s the reason most of her primary education comes from orphanage and foster schools. Her mother’s friend Grace took care of her and she spent some of the most important years of her life with her. Grace would teach her to apply make up and dress appropriately.

First Wedding

In 1942, Grace’s husband was transferred to the East Coast as he was working in the army, hence she could not afford to take young Norma with her. Thereafter Grace arranged her marriage to their young neighbor, Jimmy Dougherty. In June, 1942 Norma got married and turned into Norma Jean Dougherty.

A lot of attention was paid to her photo shoots and very soon she gained immense popularity. These pictures were seen by the head of the RKO pictures who in turn offered a screen test to Norma.

Career Progression

Some agent advised her to be associated with 20th Century Fox as that is a better studio than RKO. She then signed a contract with 20th Century Fox for $125 a week for six months. It was at that time that Norma Jean became Marilyn Monroe. Her contract was then extended with an extra $25 per week for another six months. The first film that she featured in was “The Shocking Miss Pilgrim” in the year 1947.

She then had to undergo a rough patch in her career. Her performance was highly neglected in the film Scudda Hoo! She left 20th Century Fox and went back to the acting school. Her first commercial success was after she posed nude on the cover of the playboy magazine. After the year 1953, she saw a lot of success in her films as well as the modeling career. She gained a lot of popularity with the movies like “Monkey Business” and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”. It was the same year when she began dating the great baseball star banes Joe DiMaggio. She then started drawing a lot of audience with merely her appearance. She then appeared in her next hit called “How to Marry a Millionaire”. Her co-stars were often jealous of her onscreen presence as she clicked with most of her audience, especially the males. In 1954, she officially married Joe DiMaggio and also continued acting for the film “There’s No Business like Show Business”. This film was followed by the unforgettable comedy called “The Seven Year Hitch”. It was this movie that showcased Marilyn standing on the subway station and the wind blowing her white dress. This scene is by far the best scene in the history of Hollywood. By eight months after her wedding to the baseball star, she declared her divorce.

Those were the bad times of her career, mostly self-invited. She was suspended by the 20th Century Fox for not coming on time for the forthcoming movies. She carried a non-cooperative attitude towards her producers, directors including her co-stars. Finally in the year 1956, she married the legendary playwright Arthur Miller. Their marriage lasted four years and then they got divorced as well. Marilyn had to wait really long before her next hit in the form of “Some Like it Hot”. This film was the best hit she ever gave in terms of commercial success. Then she starred in her last film which is called “The Misfits” which was also the last film of her co-star George Cukor. In 1962, she was cast for the move “Something’s Got to Give” but her late coming attitude went beyond control and the studio planned to fire her. It cost them a lot of money when such delays happened and she was already 36 by then.

The End

In the year 1962, she decided to remarry Joe DiMaggio, who happened to be over protective to her. But before that she was invited to the President John F. Kennedy’s birthday dinner and was believed to have an affair with both John Kennedy and his brother Bobby in the same night. However, no one can confirm the reports of her actually having an affair with both of them but there are a lot of sources that confirm her closeness with John. F. Kennedy.

On August 5th, 1962, Marilyn was found dead in her bed by a maid servant. According to the doctors, she had taken an overdose of sedatives. Doctors also concluded that stress and her family’s mental history was partially responsible for her death. It was also rumored all over the world that she killed herself because John Kennedy refused to divorce his wife and marry her. She was laid to rest in the Corridors of Memories, number 24, Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

Marilyn Monroe made sure that she realized her dreams, amidst of all difficulties. However, there were a lot of dark sides to her personality. Well, she shall be remembered as a dedicated, extremely sexy model as well as a motivational human being. She has set both, the good as well as the bad examples to the world!
