The star battled cancer for more than 30 years.

Like Norm Macdonald says, she didn't lose her battle with cancer. I'd call this one a draw. Fark, 30 years, I might give the nod to her on this one.
 
2022-08-08 3:55:20 PM  
Her doctors caught her cancer early because she had a physical, physical, she wanted a physicaaaaaal

Real busy day for the cast of "Grease." I can hardly keep up.

As cloying and 80's pop as this song is it's part of the reason I fell a little in love with ONJ and am sad at this news.  RIP beautiful lady.

And now instantly restored to a vibrant energetic body about 27 years of age, roaming around the afterlife feeling as good as possible, if you believe that kind of thing.  Which for her, I definitely will, because I want it to be true.

She did the theme song for the movie Sordid Lives.  NSFW (language)

She could do rock, pop, country...whatever.   Very versatile singer, actress, and a very sweet lady by all accounts.

May she Rest Peacefully

What an incredible life, she will always be remembered.
 
2022-08-08 3:57:47 PM  
I always thought this was an awful performance, but what do I know?
Seems like she was loved by everyone.

She was the very first person I saw live in concert, on the Physical tour.

I still have both the t-shirt and the program.

Crap.

Really liked her folk and early '70s stuff.

This is a damn good pop song, and I wish more people loved it as much as I do.

Per TMZ, "After a 30-year cancer journey, she lost her battle to metastatic breast cancer."

Fuck cancer!

She had an excellent voice even if I'm not a fan. It occurs to me now that I have a weirdly large collection of Olivia-Newton John albums and I've never listened to any of them.

Except this one, but that's because it's also ELO:

// Magic is a very good song; so is the Xanadu theme
/// Rest of the album is kinda meh

UCSB: 30-odd years ago I heard her bestie Jane Seymour talking quietly about how bad ON-J diagnosis was so 30 years is a great run against The Big Casino...

So you heard about Eddie Deezen, then?....
 
2022-08-08 4:00:17 PM  
Awww that's sad. I'm going to celebrate her life by continuing not to watch Grease

I remember it being pretty slow, but I was rather young when I watched it.

I was really young when my mom took me to see Xanadu.  I knew that movie was horrible, but I was infatuated with the gorgeous woman on the screen.  Fark you cancer!

And I'm finally on the board for 2022, or will be as soon as it gets updated:

CSB: I met her working backstage at a show a few years ago.  We accidentally locked her inside her dressing room for a short time (door handle actually fell off inside).  She was very nice about the whole thing.
