Lena Horne Dead at 92

Lena Horne, the Grammy-winning singer, actress, and dancer, died last night in New York. She was 92.

Renowned as the first black actress to score a major Hollywood contract, Horne was also the subject of some lesbian speculation; in the 90s, Michael Musto reported “a book is under way that plans to out” her. Apparently nothing much came of that.
