Marilyn Monroe

Why do I feel compelled to buy and read anything that has to do with Marilyn Monroe??? She was gone before I was born but I remember as a little girl reading one of my Mother's magazine's it was probably the ten year anniversary of her death and I remember her face always looking so sad, so beautiful, so glamorous but yet so sad. The Misfits has been shown alot lately on cable and I catch it everytime, not because of her excellent acting skills  but because of her vunerability that is displayed in this show, I believe that movie probably depicted her real persona the best. So today at the grocery...............I just had to pick up the Vanity  Fair magazine...guilty, guilty, guilty.  I have a few aprons and bags to sew and a garage sale to set up for the weekend and finish painting furniture but still I had to know just what were in those diaries of the beautiful sad woman who had it all in the public eye but who lived such tragic life....... I will read after I work........... Does anyone else feel compelled to buy magazines just because of a movie star on the front? Please tell me I am not the only one...............
