I'm an old lady. I have children and a husband and cats. I work. I come home. I ignore my children, husband and cats while I sit at the computer. I go to sleep.

I'm a mean old lady.

(Eleanora Fagan)
jazz singer
Born: 4/7/1915
Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland

Jazz singer known for her emotion-laden vocal performances. She performed with Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Teddy Wilson before embarking on a successful solo career in 1940. Her recordings include “Strange Fruit” (1939) and “God Bless the Child” (1941). Holiday's drug addiction destroyed her career and was responsible for her early death.
