  1. She looks HOT!

    Wow, I had no idea about this award, and when they list out all her achievements like that you just have gasp in wonder. What a career, and she’s managed to do it her way, musically and personally. She really proved to the manufactured-pop industry that you can be different/unique and still be successful, without selling your dignity!

  2. Deb, you’ve said it all: “When they list out all her achievements like that you just have to gasp in wonder. What a career, and she’s managed to do it her way, musically and personally. She really proved to the manufactured-pop industry that you can be different/unique and still be successful, without selling your dignity!”

    I think this is the message that resonates for many of her most devoted fans: “You can be different/unique and still be successful, without selling your dignity!” Faye’s dignity is and always has been intact! What a phenomenal accomplishment over such a long period of time — maintaining one’s dignity in all the noise and flash of fame and stardom.

    In this sense she’s more than just a star. She’s an example, a role model, a teacher — a person to emulate not just in musical performance but in life.
