Judy Garland

41 Years ago today Judy Garland died of a drug overdose. Judy had a very sad life, as most people know, filled with depression and anxiety. “Despite her professional triumphs, Garland battled personal problems throughout her life. Insecure about her appearance, her feelings were compounded by film executives who told her she was unattractive and manipulated her on-screen physical appearance. Plied with drugs to control her weight and increase her productivity, Garland endured a decades-long struggle with prescription drug addiction. Garland was plagued by financial instability, often owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes. She married five times, with her first four marriages ending in divorce. She also attempted suicide on a number of occasions.”

Judy definitely had her demons, but was a troubled soul because of everything she had gone through in her life. Here are some pics to remember her by.
