Remembering Elizabeth Taylor: 1932-2011

Rest In Peace - Elizabeth Taylor

Feb. 17.1932 – Mar.23.2011

She was a woman with real gum-shun with an aura that left stardust in her footprints.  News of Elizabeth Taylor‘s death is hitting the world like a ton of bricks. With affairs the whole world remembers, and as many as eight marriages under her belt, Elizabeth Taylor was the kind of person that radiated beauty. She’s one of those striking beauties, a style icon, a Hollywood beacon, and so much more. Her most admirable quality in all of her splendor lies in one of my favorite quotes of hers -

“I’VE ALWAYS ADMITTED THAT I’M RULED BY MY PASSIONS.”

Passion is a force stronger than anything I’ve ever felt, I thrive on it, and with her extensive film resume and her AIDS activism, Elizabeth Taylor was a woman after my own heart. I’ve danced to ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,’ performed in a remake of ‘Taming of the Shrew,’ and marveled at her beauty in ‘Cleopatra,’ her work was a testament to her star power. I’m embarrassed to say that considering my love of the author in the title and old Hollywood movies, I have yet to see ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ At seventy-nine years old, Elizabeth Taylor has left this world for the next, having lived a life so full of enchanted moments that most people can only dream of. She will be missed. She will be remembered. She is immortal.
