Angeline (English Angelyne; née Ronia Tamar Goldberg, October 2, 1950, Chmielnik, Poland) is an American singer, actress, media personality and model who gained fame in 1984 after the appearance of a series of iconic billboards with the inscription "Angelyne" - in Los Angeles and its surroundings - and the image of the girl herself in provocative poses. The event attracted local media attention, and Angeline soon received several offers for magazine interviews, film roles, and television appearances. In addition to her bright appearance, the main highlight of her image was the pink Corvette. Billboards featuring her have subsequently appeared in several films and television series, including the opening credits of Moonlight Detective Agency, as well as shows such as The Simpsons, Futurama, and BoJack Horseman. Angeline was also notorious for hiding her real name, age, and lineage from the public for a long time. In 1978, Angeline joined the punk rock band Baby Blue, led by her boyfriend, who played a lot in local clubs, but never achieved popularity. In 1982, the girl recorded her self-titled debut album, which was promoted by frank posters with her image. After launching a large-scale advertising campaign to promote her media image, in February 1984, she began work on her second record, which was released two years later under the name Driven to Fantasy. Until the end of the decade, Angeline starred in several feature films, the most famous of which are Earth Girls Are Easy (1988), Dangerous Love (1988) and Homer and Eddie (1989). In 2003, Angeline ran for governor of California, finishing 29th out of 135 candidates. During the election campaign, the model performed under the slogan "We had gray, we had brown, now it's time for light and pink." She also painted, having organized several solo art exhibitions in Los Angeles. Angeline was a candidate in the 2021 California gubernatorial election, running as an independent and finishing 18th (the highest among self-nominated candidates).
