“Mostly, though, she talks about Serge. Always Serge. Asked what her favourite song of hers is, she says, “That Serge wrote for me?” No, I say. That she wrote herself."
But how do we know she didn’t like being naked and chained to a radiator? (Let she who’s never begged to be tied up cast the first stone.) Birkin’s willingness to expose paved the way for two generations of S&M-loving starlets: Madonna, Britney, Gaga, Rihanna. They’ve all been called pro-sex feminist icons; too bad none of them look much like they’re getting off. At least Birkin not only looked, but so famously sounded, like she was.
“We thought it would be forever, but we did last 13 years and that’s not bad. You have that love and faithfulness once in your life.” For what it’s worth, she has lived alone since Serge’s death. That’s some Titanic shit right there. Birkin turns 65 in two weeks.”

Hong brought streets in the eastern city of Taizhou to a standstill when, accompanied by a colleague, he took his animals to a pond.
Armed with nothing but a cane, he guided his feathered friends three quarters of a mile as part of an annual tradition in Zhejiang province.”
