- Back in 1926 a young woman named Norma Jean Baker was born in LA, later on she would move on to become one of the world's legends. With her curves and her melodrama Marilyn made Hollywood headlines. But like all major legends, the dramatic starlet's life had a dramatic end when she died of an overdose in 1962. Today she would have turned 85.
Also i would like to shout out a little happy birthday to another special, future starlet, my sister Laura, who turns 13 today!
