Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe

Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe

 

 

 

Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe!  Today would mark the 86th birthday of the bombshell who made being blond iconic.  Marilyn, born Norma Jean Baker, was a actress, model, and singer who could easily be called America's first major "sex symbol."  Even though she had a larger than life persona, many described her as a shy, somewhat wounded soul, yearning to be accepted in a world that only looked at her for what she looked like.  She passed away on August 5, 1962.  Her death was deemed a "probable suicide", but murder and accidental overdose have never been ruled out.  Many conspiracies exist about what may have happened to the great Marilyn!  May she rest in peace.
