When Marilyn stood in Madison Square Garden in front of 15,00 people including John F. Kennedy, ex-president of the United States, at his fundraising birthday party, it was merely an act of charitable nature. She wore a skin-tight, flesh-colored number with shimmering beads (and nothing under!), and in her breathy, sultry voice, she hummed "Happy Birthday, Mr. President!" - the bedtime version. She looked like butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth, but it would in his. They were the two most powerful people in the world. HE was the hero, SHE was the whore.
It is a story as old as time- a man with all the power in the world is helpless under the spell of an enchanting woman. And a woman with all the beauty in the world is pulled, by nature, towards a powerful man. It is as if the universe conspires to create this balance, then powers collide and one is bound to wipe the other out. Even in Marvel's universe - a comic depiction of our world - they created Superheroes with chiseled abs, death-defying skills and paranormal strength, but they also had to create the sexy, "whoresome" siren to humble them down. But would Superman ever divert his powers and use them against Lois Lane? No.
It is a natural progression. We spend our hole lives in the quest for money, for growth and for power. Yet once we see what we need the most in another, we give our power away.
To every young boy who dreams of being a Superhero, and every young girl who dreams of being Marilyn Monroe.
