    It is a wonderful read. Giving excellent information about how a huge star is developed. How failure and success meet and comes and go. How the personal life of a star affected by the stardom and life of an artist is about dealing with ups, downs and move ahead. Overall, very interesting read.

    Decent read Decent read, enjoyed the parts about her childhood and dancing. However, some parts feels like a chronological arrangement rather than a biography.

    Lost interest Somewhere along the way I lost interest since it was the same thing over and over. Too much emphasis was placed on her dancing.
