Feminist icon: Kate Bush

kate bush album

Dear Kate Bush,

We love you and all your flowery goodness! Ever since you came on the scene with your art-school ways you’ve made the musical world exotic and splendid.

Who could forget your arms windmilling away to the ‘Wow’ song or your strange mime-artist dancing in a tattered mummy outfit? Or the sadsome splendour of ‘The Man with the Child in His Eyes?’

Even though you’re a strange woman from the wilderness realms of faerie we recognise you as a huge talent who is quite frankly gorgeous.

You go, girl!

Love, Mookychick xxx

Best Kate Bush Quotes:

I think quotes are very dangerous things

I learnt to get hurt and I learnt to cope with it.

Seeing my first video was like watching myself die.

Ooh yeah, you’re amazing, We think you’re incredible, You say we’re fantastic, But still we don’t head the bill. WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, Unbelievable.

Kate Bush Background:

Kate Bush was discovered at 16 by David Gilmour from Pink Floyd. In the first 2 years of her contract, Bush did not release an album, but finished school, did dancing/mime/music lessons and made 200 song demos. Too mooky for words. She’s back this year with a new album.

Kate Bush Best Known For:

Doing nutty mime dancing to idiosyncratic songs. Wearing a leotard with no bra. Writing lyrics about female masturbation and Nazi sonar experiments and ghosts from literary fiction for her major pop hits. Being a lovable recluse. Never giving interviews.

Kate Bush Least Known For:

A filthy mouth. They say she swears like a trooper! Oh and she nipped off and had a son 5 years ago and covered her tracks so well, the press didn’t find out until 2 years later. Haha!

Mooky Factor:

Very high. Kate Bush is incredibly talented and oddball-beautiful, everyone loves her for being real (NOT ONE PERSON IN THE WORLD THINKS SHE’S ANNOYING), and she’s done what the hell she wanted all her life. How many other 16 year old pop stars can say they never got pushed around by anyone?
