Liza with a Z......Just say Yes!
I'm always fascinated by people born with the "Look at Me!" gene. The kind of people who are only fully alive when they are on a stage. Robbie Williams, Sammy Davis Jr., Liza Minnelli...et al. There's a kind of tightrope walking they do that keeps us on the edge of our sets, a coming close to failing that makes them seem so vulnerable and human, and a confidence that is inspiring.
Bruce Hainley writes about this subject much more eloquently than I ever could, check out his piece on "Liza with a Z" here on Artforum.com
