Why he might be annoying
He dropped out of medical school to play jazz.
He fathered seven children with six women.
Dubbed 'high society's favourite gigolo,' he whored around with prominent men and women, especially British royalty.
His conquests included Merle Oberon, Cole Porter, Ivor Novello, Tallulah Bankhead and Princess Margaret.
During his encounter with Countess Edwina Mountbatten, the couple became stuck together sexually, and were taken to a private hospital to get unstuck.
Why he might not be annoying
He was a child piano prodigy.
Due to racism, he'd have to use the servants' entrance at venues he was scheduled to perform.
He was fluent in several languages.
Countess Mountbatten supposedly presented him with a diamond-encrusted penis sheath designed by Cartier.
Despite being one of the United Kingdom's most successful performers of the 1920s/1930s, he died penniless.
