We all remember the pink hair, heavy make-up and lots and lots of black (this princess was, after all, the daughter of the Prince of Darkness).
I was in middle school (ed note from Abby: I just fell off my chair while reading that phrase from my lovely intern. Holy crap am I old!) when she covered Madonna's Papa Don't Preach and am not ashamed to say that I danced to it in friends' rooms and at school dances.
We liked that she wasn't some twiglet and embraced her and all her many quirks, both style and otherwise.
