Sojourner's Place

old school friday...eartha kitt, puuurrrr!  

Posted by SjP in , ,

Sankofa tells us this morning that the heavens are a little brighter with the home-going of the renowned Ms. Eartha Kitt. Orson Welles famously proclaimed her “the most exciting woman alive”. Pursued by billionaires, celebrities and diplomats, Ms. Kitt will remain the epitome of class, style and sophistication.

So in tribute the purrrrfect Diva, I present to you this Old School Friday the uncompromising, incomparable, and undeniable Ms. Earth Kitt singing "Too Close for Comfort" including a wonderful montage of her career, life, and acquaintances.

Mrs. Grapevine and Ms. Marvalus are the creators of this bloggie meme. Click here for more info and join the fun.

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

You are right SjP, Eartha was the purrrrfect Diva. A lovely and fitting tribute for such a lovely and talented woman.

Happy OSF! We both had the same idea about using this week's meme as a tribute to Eartha Kitt. Your choice of video is outstanding...

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier today. I invite your blog readers to check out my tribute to Eartha Kitt as she sings 'Santa Baby'. I'm not sure we appreciated her in America as much as she was appreciated in other countries around the world...

peace, Villager

Good choice of video! I love watching her on screen...she will be missed.

SJP -- We have lost another icon, who was a trailblazer in her own rights. She was one who had no public drama. She was wrongly persecuted for her views on the Vietnam war, but she rose, inspite of being blacklisted in the US. She had a lot of grace and style. She will be missed. She made Christmas deliciously seductive with "Santa Baby." Dahling, you will be missed!

I was sad to hear this, we lost so many great ones this year.

{glass raised} I toast the life and talent of the phenomenon known to the world as Eartha Kitt. May she rest in peace.

What I really liked about Ms. Kitt was that she was a principled woman, although it cost her big time. You have to respect a woman like her. I wish her a peaceful journey. Enjoy your Friday and have a Happy New Year.

Hey SjP!

Great tribute to a true Diva!

I am glad that we are going to pay homeage to Eartha. This sistah has been a class act her entire career. On the stage and off the stage.

Lots of tributes to Eartha Kitt. May she RIP.

May she rest in peace, I can never get tired of hearing Santa Baby. :) Mind you, the one line that will forever ring in the back of my mind is "Maaarrrcuuuuusss daaaaahhhhlliiiinnn." Lady Eloise herself! We will miss her so.
