WATCH: 'It Was Totally Embarrassing To Be Famous And Homeless'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Danny Bonaduce rose to fame as the wise-cracking, freckled face middle son on the 1970s television show "The Partridge Family." But, when the show ended in 1974, the then 15-year-old child star left home and was soon living on the streets of Hollywood and using drugs. In his appearance on "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" Bonaduce talks about the unusual experience of being both homeless and famous at the same time. "I lived right behind this dumpster, but I lived in my car," he says. Bonaduce recalls the sharp difference between his homeless lifestyle but still being treated as a revered celebrity. "I'd wake up, kind of wipe my eyes, and I'd go right through the little arch and I'd be in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater, where everybody's footprints are," he says. "I was still famous and people had no idea I lived behind the dumpster... I'd be taking pictures with people and signing autographs." When he was finished posing with fans -- and sure that they wouldn't see him ...

  • TWENTIES
  • 1990
    Age 23
    When Morvan and Pilatus pressured Farian to let them sing on the next album, Farian admitted to reporters on 15 November 1990 that Morvan and Pilatus had not actually sung on any of the records.
    More Details Hide Details Milli Vanilli's Grammy was withdrawn four days later. Arista Records dropped the act from its roster and deleted their album and its masters from their catalog, making Girl You Know It's True one of the largest-selling albums to ever be taken out of print. A court allowed any American who bought the album to get a refund. Farian would later attempt a failed comeback for the group without Morvan and Pilatus. Months later, Morvan and Pilatus parodied the scandal in a commercial for Carefree sugarless gum. They began to lip sync to an opera recording. An announcer asked as they were lip synching, "How long does the taste of Carefree sugarless gum last?" The record then began to skip and the announcer answers, "Until these guys sing for themselves." They then moved to Los Angeles, where they released an eponymous album under the name Rob & Fab. Despite positive reviews from critics, the album failed due to financial constraints, poor promotion, and the scandal surrounding Milli Vanilli's lip-synching allegations. The album itself only sold around 2,000 copies.
    Milli Vanilli won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist on 22 February 1990 for Girl You Know It's True.
    More Details Hide Details Morvan and Pilatus were a frequent target of rumours and allegations of on-stage lip-synching and not having sung on the album. Shaw told a reporter the truth about Milli Vanilli, but recanted after Farian paid him $150,000 to do so.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1966
    Born
    Morvan was born in 1966 in Paris, France, to parents from Guadeloupe.
    More Details Hide Details At 18, he moved to Germany, where he was a dancer and model, and was influenced by funk, soul, rap and pop music. He met Rob Pilatus in a nightclub in Munich. They decided to form a rock/soul group. Morvan and Pilatus were noticed by music producer Frank Farian, who signed them as part of a musical act. Shortly after a trip to Turkey, where they reputedly got the band's name from a local advertising slogan, Milli Vanilli was born. Morvan and Pilatus served as the public faces for singers Charles Shaw, John Davis, and Brad Howell, who Farian thought were talented musicians but lacked a marketable image. The first Milli Vanilli album was Girl You Know It's True. Despite critical derision, Milli Vanilli's fame continued to grow worldwide. The album had four hit singles: the title track, and the group's three #1 hits, "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You", "Baby Don't Forget My Number", and "Blame It on the Rain".
