Olivia Newton-John –
Singer, actress, grease fitting.
September 26, 1948 – August 8, 2022.
Aged 73 years.
Most recognized for: By 28, Olivia was the music world’s chart-topping, Grammy-winning good girl. Then came the role of Sandy… a sheltered 50’s high school senior who trades her poodle skirt & bobby socks for black spandex & cigarettes. Post-Grease, she quickly shed what was left of her wholesome image for that of a horny aerobics instructor with her near-pornographic exercise anthem “Physical.” And though she put up a fight, repeated bouts with illness left her summer dreams ripped at the seams. But, oh, those summer nights.
