“Sugar Daddy” – Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Music and Lyrics: Stephen Trask
On this day in 1994, Anna Nicole Smith married J. Howard Marshall, a man whom many would call a sugar daddy as he was 63 years her senior. In this musical autobiography told by the fictional Hedwig, the transgendered East German rock star sings this zealous invitation for a sugar daddy. Shameless though it may be, the rollicking number is also a genuine plea by a desperate individual craving a better life. Whether this was the case with Anna Nicole Smith is unknown, but no one can fault someone for wanting to improve their situation.
