At 73, Carly Simon Still Knows What to Do

Hard to believe 1970s sex goddess Carly Simon turns 73 today. (We saw her in March and she still looks gorgeous!) A friend told me earlier that he had "You Know What to Do" stuck in his head -- an erotic synthpop single from her "Hello, Big Man" album that failed to heat up the charts. The video got some rotation back in the day, though. But having read her shocking memoir, it's hard not to view the scenes in the pool house through a disturbing new lens -- one of a sexually awakening young girl who was preyed on by a older boy who used her as a substitute for her big sister he couldn't get, rather than just a garden-variety lust affair. If you haven't read "Boys in the Trees," you don't know what you're missing. Carly never disappoints.
