Born in LA, Belinda has posed for Playboy, played drums with the Germs, and fronted the first all-girl rock band to have a #1 hit.

Twenty years ago she released her first solo album, whose single "Mad About You" peaked at #3 in the US charts.

The above video is that tune perfomed by Belinda and her re-united band, The Go-Go's, at the Justice Ball, a benefit that was held earlier this month at the Hollywood Palladium.
