Best Celebrity Groupie (2008)


Although BEBE BUELL recently protested that "to tag me with that kind of outdated, misused term is offensive to me as a woman. Maybe in 1968 I would have proudly called myself that. In 2001? No relevance," I use "groupie" with sincere admiration. 1974 Playmate, NYC fixture, and Liv Tyler's mother, Bebe—formerly involved with Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop, Rod Stewart, Stiv Bators, Elvis Costello, Todd Rundgren, and Steven Tyler, among others—just turned 50, is still gorgeous, and is still determinedly rocking out with her own band. She wrote a New York Times bestseller last year that proves she's the perfect amount of shameless (she can dish, but she's no sycophant). The best part of Rebel Heart? The chapter that speculates as to whether or not Prince is singing "Bebe, you're much too fast" in "Little Red Corvette."
