Story, 1978: ABBA Anna too skinny?

Anna (or Agnetha) – the one with the long blonde hair – is beautiful, although she would be the last one to admit it. “I don’t think I’m beautiful at all. When I was a little girl I had a huge gap between my teeth. The dentist has done some work on that; for four years I had to wear braces. I didn’t dare to smile anymore, because then you would see those iron wires. Thankfully, it all worked out fine in the end.”
Anna has long blonde hair, beautiful but laborious. “I have to wash my hair every other day, it’s not very convenient. I’d love to cut my hair short, but I’m not allowed to.”
Whenever she doesn’t have to perform, she hardly uses make-up. “On stage, I wear fake lashes and blue or brown eye shadow. Most of the time, we wear glittery clothes, real show stuff, because that fits our music. I decide myself what I wear during performances. I like red and blue. I wear everything, including Björn’s pants. But I’m not that crazy about clothes that I need to have something new all the time. For me to buy something, I really need to find something at random. But first I want to put on some weight. Yes, I think I’m too skinny! Nobody thinks that, but I do. Ever since the baby was born, I’m getting skinnier every day. I really don’t know what’s the cause of that, maybe it will pass.”

Interesting article. I like how she says she wears everything even Bjorn's pants. Might as well wear the pants they share the sweaters and shirts. :o)

Yes Monica, as long as they don't share their underwear. That would be a step too far...

I would be happy to be able to say the second sentence 1 time in my life ;oD
Our poor little mouse like to complain sometimes- I love her so much.
