Intimidating other women
Though less common, groupies of sports teams and athletes, actors/actresses and other celebrity figures do exist.
The word groupie originated around 1965 to describe teen-aged girls or young women who sought brief liaisons with musicians.
The following year, a documentary film titled Groupies (1970) was released.
Female groupies in particular have a long-standing reputation of being available to celebrities, pop stars, rock stars and other public figures.
Connie Hamzy, also known as "Sweet Connie", a prominent groupie in the 1960s, argues in favor of the groupie movement and defends her chosen lifestyle by saying, "Look we're not hookers, we loved the glamour".
However, her openness regarding her sexual endeavors with various rock stars is exactly what has enhanced the negative connotations surrounding her type.
To complicate matters, many of these "new" words seem to have such intimidating histories that we don't take the time to properly understand their usage -- instead we repeat them blindly, whether we know what they really mean or not.Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant is quoted as distinguishing between fans who wanted brief sexual encounters, and "groupies" who traveled with musicians for extended periods of time, acting as a surrogate girlfriend, and often taking care of the musician's wardrobe and social life.Nancy Spungen, who became the partner of Sid Vicious of The Sex Pistols, is one such example; women adopting this role are sometimes referred to as "road wives".For example, she stated in the Los Angeles Times article "Pop & Hiss" (December 15, 2010): "Hamzy, unlike the other groupies, was never looking to build relationships.She was after sex, and she unabashedly shared intimate moments with virtually every rock star – even their roadies – who came through Arkansas." Her most recent book, Let's Spend the Night Together (2007), is a collection of wildly varied interviews with classic "old school" groupies including Catherine James, Connie Hamzy, Cherry Vanilla, Dee Dee Keel, Margaret Moser, as well as 80s and 90s groupies including Pleasant Gehman, Patti Johnsen, and Lexa Vonn.
