Catherine Ringer

Catherine Ringer...one half of the French pop group Les Rita Mitsouko. They had some big new wave hits in the ‘80s. I was unaware of Les Rita until I was trawling around on YouTube for videos of Sparks and came upon a video of a collaboration of the two groups:

Unfortunately the video has been taken down.

My jaw immediately dropped when this Catherine Ringer woman came on the screen. Really unexplainable movements and a look in her eye that was possessed. Jesus- and she’s beautiful. Just look at this video for their song “Marcia Balla”

Look at those serpentine movements!

I did some searching on her and found out she did some pretty amazing porn in the ‘70s along with some avant-garde theatre work. Her porn is pretty stunning in itself- a lot of shots of fucking a broom, shitting in a guy’s mouth…but through it all she exhibits a strange sense of humor that can also be found in the Les Rita Mitsouko work. I would post these pictures but I know they would be hotlinked to shit. But here is another stunning video from the group:

Ah yes, Cathering is amazing in most everything she does. Did you also catch in Youtube the french TV interview where Serge Gainsbourg the old lecher (and genius) proved himself to be a double-standard hypocrite by calling her a whore for having done those pornos?

Cool-as-you-like, at first Catherine politely explained to him that it was all just a part of experimenting with "L'Aventure Moderne", but when the drunken and slurring Serge could do nothing but keep calling her names, she shut him up by a quick retort along the lines of "rant all you like but nobody can even understand what you're mumbling there - and you smell bad".

Whatta woman!
