Apparently it’s Kelly Cutrone Day here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone. We only just wrote about her new reality series this morning but we thought, for maximum overload, what better time to write about her new book: If You Have To Cry, Go Outside.
According to Kelly, the book is part memoir, part personal-growth manual and it combines Kelly’s personal and professional stories, as well as her ‘secrets for success without selling out.’ The book contains chapters on finding your tribe (the like-minded ‘souls who make your heart sing’), how a breakdown can be a breakthrough and how there is no such thing as perfection.
Although we know here as the leading force behind fashion PR, she’s had a pretty mad life so far and she’s put a lot of her life lessons into the book. Here are some little tidbits I have found out about Kelly so far:
- She married Andy Warhol’s protégé and former whip dancer (what?), Ronnie Cutrone, when she was just 21.
- In 1995, Kelly scored a record deal with Atlantic Records. She recorded an album, went on tour and then realized the rock and roll lifestyle was not for her. This somewhat explains why she wears all black, all the time.
- She had a spiritual awakening at the Beverly Laurel Motel in LA after a descent into drugs.
Back to the book. I have managed to get a little sneak peek at it and I love it so far. I can’t say that I have a propensity for seeking out “self-help manuals” but if I was going to try and find one that suited me, this might be it. A strong woman who has built her career from the ground up is definitely a woman to look up to.
Finally, for a bit of fun, Kelly has also answered some fan questions at the back, including the all-important ‘Do you comb your hair?’ and ‘Are you into witchcraft?’
You can pre-order/buy If You Have To Cry, Go Outside from $15.51. I definitely will be getting this.
