Oh Betty Betty Betty! For those of you who is unfamiliar with Betty Davis, you must get to know her. Davis wrote and produced all of her own songs in her 1973 self entitled album Betty Davis. She married Miles Davis in 1968 and introduced Miles to Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone. Having influenced artists such as Missy Elliot, Macy Gray and Kelis, Davis telegraphed an ostentatious eroticism years ahead of its time with her ferocious energy, thigh high moon boots and brazenly belting out lyrics about her sexual prowess. Promising to rough you up, seduce you and leave you pleading with more. I'm listening to her 'Anti Love Song' number as I am picking out outfits and looks for tomorrow's shoot. Clara Magazine have asked to profile me for their 'to dress like' article. Betty Betty Betty... you're putting me in a rebellious mood. Hahaha!
