Susanna Hoffs: Bangles Damsel

August 1, 2011


… These are the lovely ladies and gorgeous girls of eras gone by whose beauty, ability, electricity and all-round x-appeal deserve celebration and – ahem – salivation here at George’s Journal…


Sweet, diminutive, coquette-ish and sexy as hell with those big brown eyes and holding her Rickenbacker guitar, Susanna Hoffs bewitched males the world over as she taught them how to walk like an Egyp-shi-an, then she seduced them when she ordered them to say her name, as the sun shone through the rain on her eternal flame. Or something like that. She’s the one from The Bangles everyone remembers and she still looks cotton-bloomin’ amazing – and, yes, she’s the latest addition to the Talent corner on this very blog…



Name: Susanna Lee Hoffs

Nationality: American

Profession: Musician

Born: 17 January 1959, Los Angeles

Height: 5ft 2in

Known for: Writing, playing and performing as vocalist for iconic ’80s all-girl band The Bangles, especially on the hits Manic Monday, If He Knew What She Wants, Walk Like An Egyptian (all 1986), In Your Room and, of course, Eternal Flame (both 1988). She also played the lead role in the film The Allnighter (1987) and appeared in the mock-band Ming Tea in the Austin Powers movies (1997-2002), directed by her husband Jay Roach.

Strange but true: On the ‘interesting’ advice of the producer, Hoffs actually recorded the vocals to Eternal Flame in the nuddy, owing to the former claiming Olivia Newton-John always did so.

Peak of fitness: Topping so many moments, including the cheekily flirtatious look-left-look-right moment in the Walk Like An Egyptian video (apparently the result of Ms Hoffs’ on-stage nerves), must be the scene in the aforementioned The Allnighter in which Susanna oh-so sexily slowly dances in front of a mirror while wearing, well, not very much at all. Hmmm, yes.
