I have to laugh at the look on her face. It's a classic half-smile/half-snarl that's unique to the metro-NYC area. It's like she's kind of smiling but she's ready to say "Ey, whassa mattayou" at any moment. My junior high school yearbook is full of that look - even from me and my brutha. The girl on the left must be from out of town.

This is my opinion. I believe that because of MTV singers now have to be also good looking to be commercially viable. There are many (IMO) from the pre-MTV era that would not be successful based upon their singing talent alone.

Looking at Omar's pictures of The Ronettes. They would have been successful in the video era of the music industry we see today.
