To me, the 90's signaled the end of glam rock, the beginning of gangsta rap, and hopefully the beginning and end of boy bands.— Shane West
Unbelievable Glam quotations
Free Agents' was an awesome experience.
I never play the glam girl in anything, so that was a new experience. I would walk into one of my trailers and it would be like Spanx, a spray-tan gun, and chicken cutlets. I would have hair extensions. It was hilarious. Every day felt like I was turning into an awesome drag queen.
A statement necklace glams up any outfit without feeling like too much.
Lipstick can glam up a whole look, especially in red.
Did you know that the percentage of young people in the crucial 'youthquake' age bracket of 15 to 24 was higher in 1973 than in 1967 ? Therefore it was glam rock that ended the war in Vietnam.
I wore makeup when I was at school, and I wore makeup when glam started.
I started wearing it again when punk started. I've always been drawn to wearing it. It's partly ritualistic, partly theatrical and partly just because I think I look better with it on.
I am not a glam woman - this definitely is a mask I put on for the public.
Style has always been very important to us.
We grew up in the '70s. Music was glam rock, punk rock and a very stylish movement.
My songwriting is so influenced by orchestrated music, dramatic, super glam rock-y stuff. Two of my biggest influences in songwriting were Elton John and Freddie Mercury.

I'm a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl.
I make things of my own that aren't that glam, but I'm not known for that, which has always been a bit of a frustration for me.
The ways in which Oscar Wilde was attacking the Romantics that preceded him, and the Romantic ideas that preceded him, were very similar to what the glam-rockers, particularly Bowie and Bryan Ferry, were attacking in the earnestness of '60s culture. Trying to shock, but with wit, cleverness, and homosexuality.
What was so interesting about the glam era was that it was about bisexuality and breaking down the boundaries between gays and straights, breaking down the boundaries between masculinity and femininity with this androgyny thing.
time never stops, but does it end? and how many livesbefore take-off, before we find ourselves beyond ourselves, all glam-glow, all twinkle and gold?
I like adding little elements into the final mix.
I'm more fond of the '70s glam than '80s. I have that style of vocals... there are a lot of pop artists who are using the glam vibe in their music. I'm part of that wave.
No matter how big the glam squad, or how dramatic the dress, sometimes things just don’t work out.
Yes, I would say my comedy is grunge, evidenced by the fact my jokes have put an end to big-hair glam comedy.

But I'd play on everything from pop records to a lot of the glam stuff to rock stuff to classical stuff. I used to get called to do all those things, it was great.
David Bowie is kind of the pioneer of glam rock.
Not just for music, but just his overall, how he incorporates fashion and other arts into music. And he does a really amazing job about being fearless and that kind of stuff.
I think that's what I love about glam-rock.
It invited you to participate. It asked you to change yourself in all these different ways, or offered up all these options.
If I want to be the sexy Bipasha Basu, then I'll do a song here or a glam role there. But I want to be part of films that are watched, films that earn money and are new age, with author-backed roles.
Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to the lifestyle of glamour are masters of its history. Or, to put it more elegantly, we are librarians.
You can't beat the beehive for glam punkette attitude.
Glitter is cool because that's like glam rock, but rhinestones need to die out.
I agree with you about the music of today.
It lacks style and emotion. I can't relate to it either, as for grunge music, well that was the death kneel for a lot of the glam metal hair bands of the 80's, so I really do not care for grunge. I miss the 80's as well, it was a truly great decade for music.
I consider it a great honour that my movie Drive inspired so many wonderful artists to come together and create one ultra-cool glam experience.
Life in LA is not lying in the sun for months.
It is having a 4pm meeting and leaving at noon to sit in traffic for four hours. It's not glam.
I'm sure I'm perceived in a more glam way. This is my breakout if you will.
Glam really did plant seeds for a new identity.
I think a lot of kids needed that - that sense of reinvention. Kids learned that however crazy you may think it is, there is a place for what you want to do and who you want to be.

I was a child of the '60s basically, which is a real blank.
I really started growing up, I think, in the '70s. I'm a glam-rock kid. But Dublin, Ireland in those days was a very dark place, as in it was a very poor, almost third world. Economically, the whole world is going through a recession at the moment. In the '60s, '70s, and the '80s in Ireland was a real recession. It wasn't a pleasant place.
If you look good, you run good. I go on YouTube channels and look at makeup. Each year, I get better and better at it. That's one of the things I love. So, getting ready for races, I look in the mirror and make myself look good there, so all I have to do is perform. You see most sprinters try to glam up. I think it's a confidence thing.
