Cilla, We Cill-ute You.

Few people realise the true impact of Cilla Black's wisdom on popular culture, but if we take a look at these excerpts from her agony aunt column (courtesy of Cosmo) from the late 90's, we can see just how influential she was.

Imogen:
I mean, I meant well, and it's all for the best really. And she did say some mean things (mumble mumble).
Cilla: Mmm, what did you just say? And in response to the rest; of course you did, and of course it is. But just to clarify, what did she say?

Miley: Well, I've kind of got my sights set on this guy. But he's all into abstinence, which really isn't my thing.
Cilla: Tell him you're ready to wait.

Beyonce: I like it, but what should I do with it?
Cilla: Put a ring on it.

Lady G: I want his love and I want his revenge. I just wish I could express it in some kind of romantic novel. I'm just not sure if it will be good enough.
Cilla: Bad romances are nothing to be ashamed of, ask him to help you write it.

If you wish to honor GodCilla as we do, then come on down to Twisted Blind Date in The Bernard Shaw on Valentines day, 7:30pm, for as a wise woman once said: "Slam your body down now, zig-a-zig aah"

I agree totally. Cilla is just the most amazingly talented woman. I think she is the best singer to ever come out of the UK, and she can have an audience 'eating out of her hand' the moment she steps onstage. Apart from that, she has all the time in the world for her fans. I went over to England to see the panto, and every night after the show she stood in the cold chatting and signing autographs posing for photos with a LOT of fans waiting every night. Not many people would do that. She never got in the car without saying 'have I missed anyone? and God Bless'. A very gracious and talented women.
Why Cilla isn't a Dame, I will never know!

On a personal note though, I don't like to call her GodCilla.
As great as she is, I really don't like that. Just my feelings.
