    When she retired, she said: 'Singing for me was a job - I don't miss it.'
    She once outraged a Catholic priest by performing for him in a revealing dress.
    She was an inattentive mother.
    She doesn't believe that performers can ever truly be friends with each other.
    She is frank and unpretentious.
    Unlike many opera stars of her generation, she wasn't a blimp.
    She was accomplished in many different musical styles.
    Her father was (literally) a Nazi who treated her horribly.
    She lived with her domineering mother until she was in her twenties.
    Even after she became famous, her mother continued to control her for another forty years.
