Frida Kahlo and Her Kissmark

Frida Kahlo is one of the most iconic women in the industry of arts. This is to say that she has delved in both Visual Arts and personalized literary art. She is one of the most significant symbols in the area of creativity because of love. Without love, Frida won’t be Frida. This is to say that she has enjoyed being romantic in her own right. This letter is her way of letting her man know that, although she is the strong woman she is, she is also capable of doing sweet nothings and pouring her heart out through a handwritten letter that is specifically for her lover.

TRANSCRIPTION:

Diego, my love,

Remember that once you finish the fresco we will be together forever once and for all, without arguments or anything, only to love one another.

Behave yourself and do everything that Emmy Lou tells you.

I adore you more than ever. Your girl, Frida

(Write me)

Morissey’s Not-So-Nice Letter To A Hater

If you are not a fan of The Smiths then you might as well just shut your mouth about it. Take for example this letter addressed to someone whom Morissey begrudgingly ripped apart using only this handwritten letter. There are nice things to say to an artist and responding negatively who tries to spread their creativity can lead to a very vicious reply.

Dear Person,

So nice to know there’s another soul out there, even if it is in Glasgow.

Does being Scottish bother you? Manchester is a lovely little place, if you happen to be a bedridden deaf mute.

I’m unhappy, hope you’re unhappy too.

In poverty,

Steven

Steve Martin’s Letter to Fan

Steve Martin is an American actor, comedian, writer, producer and musician. Martin came to public notice in the 1960s as a writer for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and later as a frequent guest on The Tonight Show. So this semi-handwritten letter is not a surprise to everyone but of course, it’s not Steve Martin without the humorous touch.

His format shows a lot of his dry humor and his comedic personality—

Transcription:

A PERSONAL LETTER FROM STEVE MARTIN

DEAR JERRY,

WHAT A PLEASURE IT WAS TO RECEIVE A LETTER FROM YOU. ALTHOUGH MY SCHEDULE IS VERY BUSY, I DECIDED TO TAKE TIME OUT TO WRITE YOU A PERSONAL REPLY.

TOO OFTEN PERFORMERS LOSE CONTACT WITH THEIR AUDIENCE AND BEGIN TO TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED, BUT I DON’T THINK THAT WILL EVER HAPPEN TO ME, WILL IT JERRY? I DON’T KNOW WHEN I’LL BE APPEARING CLOSE TO YOU BUT KEEP THAT EXTRA BUNK MADE UP IN CASE I GET TO FLINT.

SINCERELY,

STEVE MARTIN

P.S. I’LL ALWAYS CHERISH THAT AFTERNOON WE SPENT TOGETHER IN RIO, WALKING ALONG THE BEACH, LOOKING AT ROCKS.

People see this as sarcasm but this was the comedy that Steve Martin has in his blood. This is funny in so many ways if you only understand dry humor. One of the best and well thought out celebrity to fan mailing. It doesn’t shy away from the reality that celebrities are really swamped with letters and that it would take a lot from their time to reply in each and every letter a fan has sent to them.

Fiona Apple’s Gender Neutrality

TRANSCRIPTION:

Hello Bill,
I got your letter a few days ago, but this is the first chance I’ve had to sit down and write (it’s my day off)
Of course, I’d love to help — sign me up. As far as a few sentences go, here’s what I’ve got — I hope it’s OK:
It’s hard to conjure up some new profound way of commenting on this issue — I’m so tired of it being an issue at all, and I suppose I’m lucky, because I see the truth so clearly. All I know I want my friends to be good people, and when my friends fall in love, I want them to fall in love with other good people. How can you go wrong with two people in love? If a good boy loves a good girl, good. If a good boy loves another good boy, good. And if a good girl loves the goodness in good boys and good girls, then all you have is more goodness, and goodness has nothing to do with sexual orientation. A person who loves is a righteous person, and if someone has the ability and desire to show love another — to someone willing to receive it, then for goodness’ sake, let them do it. Hate has no place in the equation; there is no function for it to perform. Love is love, and there will never be too much.
-Fiona Apple

One of our dearest female vocalists from the 90’s reaching out and fighting against gender discrimination just by writing a letter shows that even in the smallest amount of effort. There are a lot of forms of showing support to others and even a personalized letter could mean so much to a community.
