Cherry Vanilla is the ex-groupie/Bowie-publicist/rock performer with a new book out about the great times she had popping her Cherry.
At a reading I went to the other day, Cherry sat on a gigantic, red high heel–though in the past, she’s sat on other things–and told the crowd how much fun it was “to be young and cute and sleeping with your idols.”
She entertainingly read chapters about the wonderful sex she had in the ’70s with stars like David Bowie and Kris Kristofferson, who were as amazing in bed as they were onstage, fireworks and all.
And she added, “It can be addictive, but I don’t regret any of it!
“The only thing I regret is not sleeping with Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison.”
Do you ever lose sleep thinking the same sad thoughts?
Or is it doggie style with Mama Cass that you mourn the loss of?
