Lesley Gore would totally have been my hero in 1964.

Not only was she singing about not being anyone’s toy (and that she should be able to go with other boys), she put off her career—even though her manager was Quincy Jones—to go to Sarah Lawrence and performed only on the weekends.

I think Lindsay Lohan there are probably quite a few stars that could have benefited from taking a few years off to go to college.

Lesley came out a few years ago and has been a guest host on the PBS series In the Life, which focused on LGBT issues.

Good for her.
