Joan Rivers news reported how the late “Fashion Police” host will receive a tribute at the Grammy Museum.
According to a report from Billboard , the exhibit will be entitled “Joan Rivers: Can We Talk?” and will open on June at the Los Angeles museum.
The tribute will include the iconic comedienne’s stage costumes and accessories.
Awards, photos and books will also be featured at the event.
“Earlier this year, The Recording Academy awarded my mother her very first Grammy, which was truly an honor.
On this occasion, which celebrates her 82nd birthday, it’s also an honor to have her incredible legacy included in the Grammy Museum’s ongoing tribute to the greatest comedic icons of all time,” shared Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa Rivers via a statement.
“To her, comedy was music.
There was a rhythm, but instead of notes, there were words.
And just like any of her fellow Grammy Award winners who have been on exhibition in the museum, you know she loved to play.” Grammy Museum’s executive director also explained the tribute for Joan Rivers, who made news last year following a botched throat operation at an Upper East Side clinic named Yorkville Endoscopy.
“Joan Rivers’ unapologetic one-liners and brave, biting commentary on her personal life opened doors for other female comedians,” said Bob Santelli, a director at the Grammy Museum.
“With this latest display in our comedy series, we continue to spotlight some of the greatest comedic performers, many of whom have been recognized by the Grammy Awards.” While the tribute attests to how the late comedienne was loved by many, recent Joan Rivers news reported how she received death threats for years.
According to a report from Radar Online , one stalker was a fanatical Anti-Semitic bigot who called himself “Mr.
Clean” in letters sent to Joan Rivers back in 1991.
An earlier report from thehill.com also revealed how Joan Rivers received death threats since 1973.
