Jane Russell’s Popped Her Bra Straps
Jane Russell’s popped her bra straps at 89
by Sheena Blackhall
She’d her footprints placed in Grauman’s Chinese Theatre
She was a pin up for World War Two GIs
She married to a Yankee football quarterback
She formed a singing group, sang gospel songs.
'Christians have bosoms, too, you know, ' she said
At sixty she promoted Playtex bras
They crossed your heart and kept those pups in check
She was jailed four days on drink and driving charges
Her ma was a lay preacher. They had a backyard chapel
She led film people to gather for Bible study
She’d had back-alley abortions in her youth.
She founded the International Adoption Fund
She was just a regular gal, and that’s the truth
Like liquorice allsorts, the ultimate eye-candy.
