EP 321 - MTV VIDEO VIXEN Bobbie Jean Brown: Rock to Redemption

If Webster’s Dictionary had a definition for video vixen, Bobbie Jean Brown was that definition. She will forever be the hottest video vixen ever to appear on MTV thanks to the band Warrant’s Cherry Pie music video. Every girl wanted to be her, but every guy wanted her. Bobbie Brown once took ownership of the Sunset Strip as her own personal playground. When instant stardom hit, she continued to get lost in a world of rocker boys, drugs and the never-ending partying lifestyle that Hollywood was known for. She spent decades trapped in a perpetual cycle of self-destruction, a chronic self-saboteur who stumbled and struggled her way through an endless parade of bad habits, bad relationships, and bad decisions—to find herself, at last, on the righteous path far from the Sunset Strip. If you think you know who Bobbie Brown is by reading the pages of her books Dirty Rocker Boys and Cherry on Top, you aren’t even close. A new book is being written and the ink isn’t even dry yet, because there is more life to be lived. This time with a guiding hand. She’s come full circle and face-to-face with an amazing grace that can only be described as miraculous. Today, she is here to tell the rest of her story. . #MTV #cherrypiegirl #videovixen #musicvideos #warrantband #janilane #tommylee #videos #entertainment #salvation #stalking #stolenidentity #inspiration #hollywood #faith #spirituality #emdrtherapy
