Betty Davis

So, I'm trying to figure out why I'm just getting hipped to her music?

I. love. her.



Perceptive as I am, as soon as I heard her I thought of Joi, and realized the reason I love her so much is because I didn't realize I really love the Betty Davis in her!


The original:


I'm a little upset that I'll be in London while Joi is performing here in NYC... lol! Never mind I've seen her in concert yet I've never been to England.... I wanna see Joi!

Meanwhile, I wonder what prompted Betty Davis to leave the business... I bet if she decided to come back to the stage at 65, she would be the business. I'm just sayin'!

Black rockers ROCK!

hey Mai...how ya been?

i can't believe we never discussed Betty (or Joi) before. i tend to talk about her with everybody. here are a couple of radio interviews to check out if you haven't done so already. first one is from '74 (give it a few seconds to get going); second is from 2006.
