Googoosh (born on 5th May 1950 (15th Ordibehesht 1329)) is an Iranian pop singer and former actress. Her career in the performing arts has spanned 5 decades.
Following a 21-year performing ban imposed by the conservative government of Iran (where she continued to live following the 1979 Islamic revolution), Googoosh finally left the country in 2000 to undertake a world tour, re-establishing her status as the most successful Iranian artist of all time.
The phenomenal success of these concerts was testament not only to her lasting quality as an artist, but a tribute to generations of Iranians who, despite over two decades of silence, demonstrated their continuing love and loyalty to an enduring star of a bygone era. In turn she rewarded their devotion with proof that she continues to remain relevant to today’s audiences, showing that she is a star not only of the past, but of the present and the future.
Googoosh's first husband was Mahmoud Ghorbani. He was a music promoter who had helped Googoosh make a name for herself throughout the '60s. They married in February 1967.They had a son, Kambiz,who currently lives in Los Angeles and who is also in the music industry. Ghorbani was extremely abusive to Googoosh.
After about six years of marriage, Ghorbani and Googoosh divorced in late 1972.
In 1975, Googoosh married Iranian actor Behrouz Vosoughi.
They divorced fourteen months later, in 1976.
During the late 1970s, Googoosh became involved with Homayoun Mestaghi, but after the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Googoosh served a three-month jail sentence because she was living with him outside of marriage, which was illegal under the Islamic regime.
Several years later, Googoosh divorced Mestaghi.
She married director Masoud Kimiai in 1991.They divorced in 2003
Faegheh Atashin, nicknamed Googoosh, was born in 1950 in Tehran. She lost her mother when she was an infant and moved with her father to Tehran. Her father, Saber, was an entertainer and a comedian, and he encouraged Googoosh to sing in bars and cafés in Laleh-Zar Street of Tehran when she was only 5 years old. Her singing at such an early age prevented her from getting any kind of a primary education. In 1960, when she was only 10 years old, she had a successful role in the movie The Runaway Angel (1961), a film by George Obadiah. Her first experience with cinema, however, was a movie by the title of Hope and Fear (1960) in 1958. Googoosh was discovered by Iranian composers for her natural singing talent, where she created a unique style in modern Iranian music and became a pop culture icon among the Iranian youth. In 1969, the notorious "mini-joupe" dress was a fashion among young Iranian girls who imitated Googoosh. Her famous short haircut in 1975 is still popular among females in Iran. Googoosh is said to have been a victim of underworld organizations who controlled cabarets and bars in Tehran. One of the underworld bosses, Parviz Ghorbani, the owner of "Shokoufeh Nou" cabaret was the brain behind conspiracy against Googoosh where he made created enormous debt in her name. In 1973, she married Ghorbani against her will to pay her debts. She has a son, Kambiz, from her first marriage. Googoosh starred in many popular movies, among which were Bita (1972), Honeymoon (1976) (Honeymoon), Hamsafar (1975), Mamal Amricayi (1975) and Dar emtedad shab (1978) are the most popular. She also starred in 3 Crazies (1968) with Garshasb Raoufi and Mohammad Motevaselani. Her acting career ended with the 1979 revolution in Iran. She acted with Behrouz Vossoughi, the most popular actor of his time, in several movies and later joined Saeed Kangarani in the erotic movie Dar emtedad shab (1978), which was well-received by Iranians, as well as other Middle Eastern countries. Critics, however, never considered Googoosh a successful actress. In 1976, she married Behrouz Vossoughi, but their marriage only lasted for one year. Before their marriage, Vosoughi was already engaged to Pouri Baneai, another popular actress. This marriage, however, ended the friendship between Banaii and Googoosh. With the Islamic commotion of 1979, Googoosh stopped her 25-years of singing and acting career for good. She also refused to leave Iran and consistently rejected lucrative offers for recording new albums outside the country. According to Parviz Khatibi, the late Iranian director, Googoosh left Iran right after the revolution and stayed in New York for a while. This stay, however, was so short that many Iranians don't remember it. She married Masud Kimiai and choose to resides in an apartment in the north of Tehran. On July 2000, Googoosh finally broke 21 years of silence by announcing an unexpected, but much anticipated, North American tour, starting in Toronto. To date, concerts have been performed in Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; and Washington, D.C. Other tours are expected in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and San Jose, with many more tour dates added on a weekly basis, due to sold-out performances. raid server data recovery obtain may home equity line of credit
