She famously disliked John’s longtime girlfriend Daryl Hannah, and would reportedly all the time discover a technique to eat her meal in one other room when the actress was over for dinner.
However in line with Carly Simon’s new memoir, Touched by the Solar: My Friendship With Jackie, as a lot as the previous First Woman “didn’t approve” of a few of her son’s girlfriends, she was “horrified by Madonna.”
“Jackie was very consumed with getting him on the proper path,” Simon wrote of the Kennedy mom and son. It’s not troublesome to determine what it was concerning the Queen of Pop that Jackie took umbrage with. The very fact of their opposing personalities apart, Jackie couldn’t have liked Madge’s sartorial allusions to Marilyn Monroe (with whom the late JFK was rumored to have carried on an affair). However what reportedly actually upset Jackie was the singer’s inclusion of crosses and different non secular iconography in her aesthetic. (Jackie was raised Catholic.)

Although she bore sturdy opinions about her son’s love life, it was Jackie’s personal romances that puzzled the general public, notably her marriage to Greek delivery magnate Aristotle Onassis. “She mentioned he was very attractive — he would sing to her on his yacht and take her nice locations to make love,” Simon wrote of the stunning couple. “She knew marrying him was the bad-girl transfer. In a manner I by no means knew whether or not she was sticking up for her personal determination or whether or not she actually liked him.”
