ikettes

what it is: ikettes
where i found it: some movie about backup singers

While watching some movie about backup singers my attention was called to the amazing Ikettes, who not only endured Ike Turner's brutality and ridiculous haircuts, but must have had some of the most grueling and thankless choreography routines in popular music history. Tina is no slouch, that's for sure, but at least she gets to be the star and make the big bucks. This is either misogyny at its worst or athleticism at its best.
