    Fans waited for several hours for a chance to meet Hollywood sex symbol Angelyne, the Billboard Queen, at The Pleasure Chest West Hollywood. The LA pink goddess had an album release signing to promote her sophomore album, “Driven to Fantasy,” which was re-released on May 3rd. She also found herself back on a billboard located in West Hollywood, in celebration of the re-release.

    The blond bombshell pulled up in her famous pink corvette an hour-and-half late to her meet and greet, but that did not deter the fans and the curious who waited patiently for the rare chance to meet the woman who’s famous for being famous way before Kim Kardashian was born.

    She sat behind a pink sheer veil and each fan took turns meeting her and exchanging pleasantries. She wore a mask.

    Angelyne swag at the event did not come cheap. T-shirts ranged from $100 – $125, depending on the size and it was an extra $65 for an autograph on the shirt. Autographed photos ran from $45 – $65. The album was $50. A photo and an autograph cost extra, which fans gladly paid.

    “Driven to Fantasy” is available again on Angelyne Pink vinyl, in stores and online, in partnership with Dark Entries Records as part of the label’s 15th anniversary. This is the first time that this cult record is out in print since its original release, on Hot Pink vinyl with a bonus 2-sided poster featuring lyrics.

    Driven to Fantasy features 8 tracks of bubblegum-hued new wave with a distinctly LA flavor:

    Tangerine Rose – Angelyne
    Sex Goddess – Angelyne
    Dreamin About You – Angelyne
    My List – Angelyne
    Skin Tight – Angelyne
    Flirt – Angelyne
    Sex Goddess (Dance Mix) – Angelyne
    Dreamin About You (Dance Mix) – Angelyne

    Angelyne’s rise to fame in 1984 was marked by the appearance of hot pink billboards bearing only her name, “Angelyne,” strategically placed across Los Angeles, California. These provocative billboards, featuring suggestive poses, quickly captured the attention of local media outlets, thrusting Angelyne into the spotlight and sparking a flurry of offers for film roles, magazine interviews, and television appearances.

    Central to Angelyne’s celebrity persona is her signature pink Corvette, a symbol synonymous with her identity. The iconic billboards featuring her likeness have become fixtures in popular culture, making cameo appearances in numerous movies and television series, including the opening credits of “Moonlighting” and atop buildings in films such as “Get Shorty,” where producer Harry Zim, portrayed by Gene Hackman, resides. Additionally, her distinct imagery has been playfully parodied in shows like “The Simpsons,” “Futurama,” and “BoJack Horseman.”

    Throughout her career, Angelyne meticulously guarded her real name, age, and identity, keeping them shrouded in mystery until 2017, when these details were finally revealed to the public.

    Beyond her artistic pursuits, Angelyne also dabbled in politics, running for Governor of California twice. Her bids for office coincided with the recall elections of Gray Davis in 2003 and Gavin Newsom in 2021.

    Before her rise to fame, Angelyne immersed herself in the punk rock scene, joining the band Baby Blue in 1978 alongside her then-boyfriend. Despite performing in clubs across Los Angeles, the band never achieved commercial success. Angelyne transitioned to a solo career in 1982 with the release of her self-titled debut album, accompanied by the emergence of her iconic billboard campaign. Subsequent endeavors included her second album, “Driven to Fantasy,” released in 1986, and appearances in various films, including “Earth Girls Are Easy” (1988), “Dangerous Love” (1988), and “Homer and Eddie” (1989).

    I used to see her often at the now defunct Coffee Bean by where the now defunct AAA office on SMB was. I noticed that she was very friendly and obviously very well liked by the employees. Even if she didn’t give a grin you couldn’t chisel off my face at every sighting, that fact alone makes her okay in my book.

    I LOVE Angelyne!
    I was driving in WeHo last night (5/4), and saw the big line of people in front of the Pleasure Chestand was wondering what was going on.
    Thank you for providing the answer!
    Angelyne is very good luck for people and when you are with her in-person, something good always occurs soon after!
