I wonder why Ella Fitzgerald never spread her legs and acted like a whore during her live performances.
Back in those days, African-American singers had to perform standing up. They wouldn’t give them chairs to sit on because black people shouldn’t be comfortable and/or they thought black people spread germs. Those were more racist times.
Back in those days they could sing and didn’t need to spread their legs to get fans and sell their music.
