In her 1990 memoir, Be My Baby: How I Survived Mascara, Miniskirts, and Madness, Or, My Life as a Fabulous Ronette, the singer admits she didn't shy away from leading with sex appeal.

"We weren't afraid to be hot. That was our gimmick," she wrote. "When we saw The Shirelles walk on stage with their wide party dresses, we went in the opposite direction and squeezed our bodies into the tightest skirts we could find. Then we'd get out on stage and hike them up to show our legs even more."

The Ronettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
