Faithfull curates Tate collection to look back at her life
Singer Marianne Faithfull has documented her colourful life in a new exhibition at a top museum.
The star has curated a collection of photographs, artwork and newspaper clippings at the Tate gallery in Liverpool.
One of the pieces is Richard Hamilton's newspaper artwork from the headlines created by the infamous 1967 drugs bust at the home of Rolling Stone rocker Keith Richards, when Faithfull was dating his bandmate Mick Jagger.
The scandal catapulted her to fame, when she appeared in the press as the girl who was found only wearing a rug when cops raided the house, known as Redlands.
And Faithfull, who struggled with extreme drug addiction until 1985, insisted on putting all aspects of her past on display so she would never forget the bad times.
She tells the BBC, "It's good to remember the horrible things that happened to me. I'm talking from a position of power now. I was not destroyed. I did not end up a heroin addict dead on the street, which is what it looked like after the Redlands bust - and that is the effect it had on me."
The exhibition runs until 2 September.
