The Power Of Angelyne - 2016 Oyster Magazine
She needs no introduction, she is Angelyne. She is love, light and truth. People are drawn to her — she radiates an energy that is almost from another world.
She's a Hollywood legend, featured in films like Rock of Ages, Earth Girls Are Easy and the soon-to-be-released Terminator: Genisis. She's been portrayed in Futurama, in the new Aaron Paul cartoon Bojack Horesman and she'll be performing as part of Ariel Pink's Tinseltown Takeover. A muse to many and an embodiment of longevity as a West Hollywood treasure, Angeleyne and I get deep — discussing extensionalism, the power of knowing and higher beings — all while zooming around in her pink Corvette in between crystal shopping.
What do you love most about living in Hollywood and where would you take a tourist here?
Well me of course me because I am known here and famous here! I would take them for a ride in my pink Corvette and drive around Hollywod and that’s all they would need to do.
When did you get your start in showbiz?
I was in a punk rock band in the 80’s called Angelyne and I put up a poster to gain attention for the band and it escalated into a billboard and it just got bigger and bigger resulting in different billboards of myself spread all over Los Angeles!
I still have one up today which is on Santa Monica and Wilcox and it’s a poster outside the Dragon Fly Club.
Have you embraced social media as you did with the visual media like the billboards?
Oh no! I’m not interested in anything like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram as I like to be accessible to my fan base by meeting them in person.
