It's good that you are bringing some reality to the story of Marilyn Monroe's life. It's so sad that she has been repeatedly exploited.

Netflix now disappoints much more than it thrills. Not surprising that Elton John's "Candle in the Wind" is a better summary of her life.

Last week, the kpop group (G)I-dle released a new song which is IMO a much more respectful homage to Marilyn Monroe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCO7f0SmrDc

They reference her love of books (they show her reading Leaves of Grass), they make fun of the people who come to see lewdness, and as one of the few self-produced female Kpop groups, (G)I-dle gets paid royalties on their music (and they have more artistic freedom).

(note: I'm a huge fan of this Kpop group)
