Where Are They Now? 5 Female Glam Metal Music Video Stars

Until Kurt Cobain came along and saved us from ourselves, glam metal dominated the era in which I grew up, and before my wife beat it out of me, I had a nasty affection for it. I grew up in a bumblefuck town in backwoods Arkansas, so I can't be held accountable for my early-life musical tastes. This was the days before there was much of an Internet, so all we had to keep ourselves entertained was MTV and scrambled porn channels. We were young. We didn't know any better. We gravitated toward whatever was loudest, and had the most attractive women. It's really hot in Arkansas; it does things to your brain.

But with Rock of Ages coming out today (review forthcoming), I thought I'd take a look back at some of my formative crushes and see what became of them (unfortunately, there is no evidence that Susia Hatton -- from Poison's "Fallen Angel" video -- still exists). For the most part, they're doing all right. Bobbi Brown outlived her ex-husband, Lillian Muller is a model for AARP (seriously), and Stephanie Seymour, well, she really loves her son. Tawny Kitaen? Maybe not so much.

Anyway, here's recent images of five female glam metal music video stars.

"November Rain," Stephanie Seymour (43), pictured with her son.

"Here I Go Again," Tawny Kitaen (50), pictured on "Celebrity Rehab."

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • Archie Leach

    When MTV meant "music television".

    Now we have the abomination of the jersey "this is why they hate us" morons.

  • Pat C.

    My own favorite was the girl in Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl" video. What was her name again?

  • Uriah_Creep

    That was Christie Brinkley, who became Mrs. Billy Joel (for a time.)

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Whoosh!

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    oh, and go watch that "cherry pie" video. If the quick cuts don't give you a headache, you need to up your adderal.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    I wonder what happened to the kids who played younger versions of Van Halen in "Hot for Teacher". That's it's own "brush with greatness" post...

  • Steph

    I hope that, in ten years time we get a nostalgic musical about nu metal. Also, this music is the plague, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

  • The video for Hot for Teacher is fun and ridiculous, which is par for the course for glam metal. But the song itself is incredible. Eddie and Alex get to show off with a great intro. And the main riff is one of my favorites. They could have done what they did for the Jump video and just shown themselves playing the song and it would have been awesome.

  • THEY DROPPED A PIECE OF PIE ON HER COOTER.

    And then 5 guys sprayed her in the face with a hose*.

    Man. The 80s were subtle.

    *Which they then used to spray each other. I don't even know.

  • Oh I totally forgot to register my absolute and completely sincere undying love for hair metal.
    I am contractually obliged to do that whenever there is a hair metal-related post on this site.

  • AM

    You should live in Portland. There is a surprising amount of vintage metal hair around here.

  • AM

    Oh wait, you said hair metal.

  • Either is good

  • Slash

    "Hot for Teacher" is just a great video. Actually, Van Halen did pretty entertaining videos, back when that meant something (kinda). I assume Dave was mostly responsible for that.

  • King Of Sweden

    If you grew up with these bands, you are probably(?) too old to care if ppl know you like em or not.
    Or make a defensive speech about it.
    Oddly this doesn´t seem to be the case with Dustin.
    Just ADMIT it...awesome songs from awesome bands.

  • Tawny was such a pretty girl. She looks like quite a mess for only 50.

  • PDamian

    I have fond memories of "Cherry Pie" (don't ask), so I thought I'd watch on YouTube. Turns out all the VEVO channels of 80s hair bands are featuring ads for Rock of Ages. Urgh.

  • Fredo

    Even at the height of grunge, I was still a willing lover of all things hard rock/heavy metal/cock rock. In some ways still am. You can't hate a whole music scene that is forever 15 years old (or "Seventeen" if you go by Winger...which you shouldn't).

  • emmelemm

    I'm with you, Fredo. I'm with you.

  • ,

    Lillian Muller, represent!

    That Ratt song never gets old. Crank that shit up. And I think I watched "Hot for Teacher" something like 867 consecutive times in the '80s.

    Then I discovered Husker Du ...

    I was an underage cocktail waitress when all these videos were playing in an endless loop on a big screen on MTV in the bar where I plied my trade. (That was a lot of prepositional phrases...) I made excellent tips taking my fashion cues from these glam metal ladies (Berle excepted). Thankfully, I've put away the spike-heels-with-bobby-sox look, but damned if men didn't LOVE that. Money, baby. Money.

  • bleujayone

    I seem to recall there were other pictures in that infamous set of Stephanie Seymour frolicking on the beach with her teenage son that looked as though they were trying to do their home version remake of "Spanking the Monkey" or at the very least try to give Hulk Hogan's family a run for their money in the Incest Olympics. The overtly affectionate embraces were damn creepy enough, but by the time there was a shot of her peeking in her son's trunks like she was searching for a mislaid lipstick, I began to wonder if Axl Rose did in fact get the better end of that break-up.

  • Forbiddendonut

    I am going to dismiss the Stephanie Seymour kiss as simply one of those akward moments, she zigged when he zagged, type of things. She still remains attractive.
    Hot For Teacher and Bobbie Brown still looking good too.
    Poor Tawny Kitaen. She was really something back in the day, but... craziness and time have taken their toll on her.

  • Jezzer

    I've seen the picture set the Stephanie Seymour pic is from, and it gets even more awkward. The writer on the website calls the son "Boner Boy," if that helps to illustrate it for you.

  • TheAggroCraig

    5 female...Milton Berle...do you know something I don't?

  • pajiba

    You have to see the video to understand that one.

  • TheAggroCraig

    I'll play your game, you rogue.

  • I know she's not as hot as she used to be, and I know that's her son so it's a bit weird...but damn I wish I was Stephanie Seymour's son.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I'd be breast feeding till I was 50. I wonder if she chews his food for him too?
