This Is Not A Love Song, Part VII: Bettie Page

This is not a love editorial. Somehow, this wants to be a sort of an introduction into another world, where, love exists, don’t worry, but, in other forms, more rudimental, more vivid, more natural, without that tricks you are seeing, daily, on TV or which airs on the Radio Station, tender and sweet and namby-pamby shity songs. To be short, we are searching for the unconventional face of love. We will introduce you some sort of artists who see this feeling – love – with those eyes that we wanted to see too. You will see what is all about and we hope you will enjoy our unconventional love.

Bettie Page was a Playboy pin-up model and sex symbol of the 1950s. I love this kind of women, with a childlike face and a sinful ass. Well, after divorcing Billy in 1947 and moving to New York, Bettie Page worked with a photographer to produce the first of many pin-up calendars. Within months, she was posing for many magazines, including the centerfold of January 1955’s Playboy. In the 1960s, Bettie Page mysteriously disappeared from the limelight and was said to have suffered from severe mental problems. Beauty means madness and her beauty, oh, lost beauty, it’s driving me crazy! 

Two films have been created about her life: 2004’s Bettie Page: Dark Angel starring Paige Richards and 2005’s The Notorious Bettie Page, with Gretchen Mol.
