“Generally the whole entertainment business now is bland,” Eartha Kitt said in a 1996 Associated Press interview. “It depends so much on gadgetry and flash now. You don’t have to have talent to be in the business today.”

Eartha Kitt had talent. A lot of talent. And she worked hard until the day she died. Read more about Eartha Kitt and her unique career in the obituary from TheStar.com.

We All Make The Flowers Grow

Short men and tall men and all the rest
Please don’t blame me I didn’t start this mess
Some of us stay and some of us go
Sooner or later we’ll all make the little flowers grow*
