Nineties rock legend unrecognisable 25 years after global smash hit and violent Rolling Stones gig disaster | The Sun

SINGER Meredith Brooks looks very different 25 years after shooting to fame with her 90s single, B**ch.

The 65-year-old rock star was nominated for a grammy for the song from her multi-platinum 1997 album, Blurring the Edges.

The tune became a worldwide hit thanks to the song's moody opening lyrics and chorus.

The song begins: "I hate the world today, you're so good to me I know but I can't change. Tried to tell you but you look at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath, innocent and sweet …

"I'm ab**ch, I'm a lover, I'm a child I'm a mother, I'm a sinner I'm a saint, I do not feel ashamed …"

The hit – co-writtenb with her friend Shelly Peiken – catapulted the singer to fame and a year later she was invited to support The Rolling Stones on stage in Argentina.

However disaster struck when the crowd tried to boo her off and demanded to hear the Stones, with rowdy audience members chucking rocks and tampons at her.

Meredith was hit in the eye with one flying object and left with severe bruising.

The following night Meredith tried to appease the crowd by appearing on stage in an Argentine football shirt but was again hit with missiles from the crowd.

After singing B**ch she ripped off the top and stamped on it before storming off the stage early.
