A tribute to Marilyn Monroe, whom I admire because she was a woman who worked hard towards expanding her talent, while having numerous hardships throughout her lifetime and career. My name's Toni and I'm 17 years old, and I dedicate this blog to a woman who's talent had been and still is, today, secretly hidden inside and within her soul.

I was really disgusted when I saw this t-shirt of Marilyn in a shop while I was on vacation. I just think it’s the most disgraceful and erroneous portrayal they could put out to the public. Why does practically no one respect or understand her enough? She was an incredibly wonderful and complex woman that I admire a lot. I have a much better grasp on what Marilyn was really like than the average person and it saddens me that people would actually buy it and have no idea how sick and inaccurate it is. When I saw it in the store I literally jumped up and down in almost a rage because it pained me since I know that Marilyn deserves way much more respect. I really hope she can’t see all of the rubbish that’s been made of/about her wherever she may be. I do hope she knows about us, her loyal fans. When I become successful I am going to set all of this straight. The world needs a clear and proper understanding of Marilyn because I and a ton of others are really hurt that Marilyn has photoshopped tattoos on her skin and guns in her arms or a shirt that has molly written on her body. Ugh, there are no words to describe the hatred I feel towards those people who know nothing of her and distribute/buy clothing, images, etc of Marilyn. Don’t even let me talk about her wrongly attributed quotes. It will be too long of a post to type up. All of this makes me feel terrible for her.
