THE JEAN GENIE( the girl behind Ziggy )


Cyrinda Foxe 1952-2002 (born Kathleen Hetzekian) was the inspiration behind the David Bowie song "Jean Genie." She was also the hottest Andy Warhol superstar ever! She really brought glamour to rock 'n' roll music with her self-invented Marilyn Monroe looks. The Armenian girl left Texas with the brightest red lipstick for New York City and became a star
She appeared as the dancer in THE JEAN GENIE promotional video in 1972 , is mentioned as "Lorraine" in "Watch That Man" on ALADDIN SANE LP .
When New York Doll David Johansen first saw her at Max's Kansas City, he wanted her so "BAD" that he wrote the song "Looking For A Kiss" ! .When Bowie first stepped off the Q E 2 arriving in New York City, the first thing he wanted to see was "The New York Dolls" and he came to the Mercer Arts Center . Like an alien abduction, Billy (Doll) Murcia and Cyrinda Foxe vanished into Angie and David Bowie's suite at The Plaza Hotel, only to re-emerge several long nights and short days later. David Bowie was now in love was with Cyrinda & Angie had a new lover - Billy Doll! However Cyrinda chose to marry David Johansen. Their romance was the envy of everyone. Including Steven Tyler, whom she married in 1978.( extract from Sylvian Sylvian

Cyrinda logró dos matrimonios con estrellas de rock: el primero (menos de un año) con David Johansen (New York Dolls) y más tarde con Steven Tyler de Aerosmith, con quien tuvo a su hija, Mia (Johansen y Tyler tenían el mismo manager y una cosa lleva a la otra). Establecida en Nueva York, era parte del under de Max Kansas City y se codeaba con Andy Warhol y todo el plantel de la Factory. Cuando estaba rodando un film con Warhol (Bad), quedó embarazada de David Bowie, pero decidió no tener al bebé. Su matrimonio con Steven Tyler fue un desastre que incluyó golpes, drogas y otras debacles. Cyrinda se encargó de contar todo en su libro Dream On
