Sunday, 15 May 2011

amanda learGenius other-worldly people of the world are known to act and behave inappropriately, different from what we are used to see and do. And people they are surrounded with arealso fey and are in the clouds. The history of fine art knows no case of the more awkward, otherworldly, extravagant as Salvador Dali. Being a stranger in this world, he preferred Amanda Lear, one of his major muses in life standing next to his official spouse Gala. Amanda Lear, a model, a singer, an artist and just a unique and interesting woman can be the only person to appear next to such an unordinary person as Salvador Dali.

Actually, there is no data on parents to a little Amanda Tapp born on November 18, 1946 in Hong-Kong. Some sources state that her father was an Englishman while others believe he was half-Englishman and half-Frenchman. It is not clear about her mother’s ethnic belongings either. Russians, natives of Indochina and Mongolians are believed to be the ancestors of her mother. Simply saying, to the middle of the precious century Amanda has become the live personification of globalization principle so common for our life. To the age of 16, Amanda found herself in Hong-Kong. She perfectly spoke English, German, French, Spanish and Italian languages. Thus, it is not surprising at all that later on, in her interviews, Amanda would state on different versions of her biography and origin, which all look similarly fantastic and unreal.

Whatever the case is, Amanda showed her talent to drawing in early ages and her gift as an artist was soon revealed to many people and Amanda herself. So, at the age of 16 she left for Paris and then moved to London to get educated in Art of the higher quality. Paris and London are cities which swallow young girls and that was time when young girls could get confused by all new reforms and movements. The world outlook with the well-known logo as «sex, drugs and rock-n-roll» was extremely popular that time but Amanda aka Amanda Lear in London, became the active participant of such hedonistic carousel. Moreover, she became extremely famous in social boho layers for her exclusive look, exotic beauty which could not live model agencies indifferent. In the soonest time, she became one of the most acknowledged models working at runways of English and French capitals and shooting model for magazines. Crowds of men were flying around her attracted with her unusual look. In the middle of 60s he got acquainted with Salvador Dali who became her close friend and life instructor. Amanda Lear became more popular thanks to her affair with Salvador Dali appearing together at various social functions.  She kept her warm relations with Salvador Dali till the end of life of the artist.

The other man who considerably participated in her life was David Bowie, the live rock legend, who was greatly influential for the youth sub-culture 30-40 years ago. Beingintroduced to Amanda Lear in early 70s, Bowie was highly fascinated by her and offered herto start the musical career as a singer. David was a professional celebrity to shock the public regularly and he knew perfectly that people would be thankful for something new, unique and original. He knew nothing exceptional and unusual but Amanda Lear with her specific look? Where surprisingly were matched androgyny and female sensitiveness, her low voice and alien beauty, the strange reputation of an awkward person. On the top of it, Bowie was the specialist in PR-activity and he triggered a gossip on Amanda being transsexual. Such a gossip was a strong publicity measure for that time to attract the mass media.

Amanda Lear paved her way in musical sphere along with Bowie, though her first album «I am a Photograph» was released after she parted with David, in 1977. Her album was of a triumphant success styled disco as well as other albums and singles she released later. By the year 1981 Amanda had around 8 million album copies sold and 15 million single copies sold, which made her wealthy and famous. Consequently, till the middle of 2000, Lear released new albums, once in several years, which were demanded by people of appropriate society, though the peak of her musical acknowledgment came to 1976 to 1987. She was never disappointed with that fact since the mid of 80s she shifted he interests to paining where she also succeeded since her paintings were valued and acquired by collectors.

As for private life, Amanda was not that happy in here. The positive effect of her being transsexual faded soon and Lear have put great attempts to prove that she was a real woman with real needs and she even had shot for Playboy naked. In 1979 Amanda married to the French Marquise Alain-Philippe Malagnac d'Argens de Villèle who died in fire in 2000 to destroy the singer’s house with the part of her collection with 14 paintings by Dali. The couple had no children and the public again believed that Malagnac was of non-traditional sexual orientation. Again, life stated that Amanda Lear is a person with unique fate.
