Debbie Harry Turns 70! Here’s to That Time She Hosted SNL + 7 Other Moments She Slayed
It’s punk/New Wave goddess Debbie Harry‘s birthday today and she turns 70! (Though you’d never guess it.)
This past spring she traded her typical downtown digs for a residency at the Carlyle, crooning out jazzy songs that showed the breadth of her range. And just this past weekend, Blondie opened for Morrissey at MSG. Clearly, the girl’s still got it.
To celebrate the beginning of her seventies, we dug up a clip of when she hosted the Valentine’s Day show of SNL back in 1981. As anyone who’s seen John Waters’ Hairspray, or these clips of Harry with Internet sensation (and Bob’s Burger voice actor) John Roberts, her comedic skills almost rival her dulcet tones. Aside from this vintage gem, enjoy seven other highlights from Debbie Harry’s career.
