I was just outta high school In my first band And I married my drummer Our love was grand I thought it was forever 'Til death do us part And then he cheated on me And he broke my heart Chotee So young, so confused What was I to do? Through it all, her creative and academic potential, multiple personalities, and her unstoppable humour were her weapons of self defence. I came for music, her music, not to be read to. But after each song, the reading glasses were donned and on to the next chapter, so there was no real momentum to the show musically and it wasn't what I was there to see. Combining slick songwriting with a set of some of her most honest and self-explorative lyrics to-date, intrigues and entertains with a worthy follow-up to. She is also a comic cartoonist.
Throughout her remarkable career, armed with her unique talent and instantly identifiable look, Bif would captivate the imagination of audiences and media alike, releasing ten albums and 24 videos. Bif is a passionate Animal Rights activist, and a full-time cancer patient mentor and volunteer. She escaped this early life by joining a punk rock band and left on tour, she married the drummer became pregnant and under extreme duress she aborted the unborn child and later the marriage and continued on a deadly downward spiral which culminated when she hit the floor of a Vancouver drug den overdosed. Bif showcased her life's journey etched in tattoo ink across her body and with her unique ability to transform her true life stories into song lyrics, she found her voice as a solo artist, started her own record company Her Royal Majesty's Records and at 23 years of age became a Platinum and Gold Album selling International Recording Artist. I'm so sorry, Chotee But I couldn't keep you I hope you can forgive me I hope you can forgive me My baby My baby My baby Chotee yeah, forgive me Me and him were fightin' On the road for two years He never loved me anyway Still brings me to tears Chotee He didn't really want you 'Cause he didn't want me He didn't wanna be a husband, didn't wanna be a daddy I hope you can forgive me I hope you can forgive me My baby My baby My baby Chotee yeah, forgive me. She embarked on seemingly endless international tours, several feature films and multiple television roles, only to be struck down with breast cancer at the age of 37, the newly married Bif would discover the passion for advocacy, and a triumphant return to health and what she cherished most of all - her own resilience, strength and her unfaltering relationships with her adopted dog children Anastasia the bichonfrise, and Nick Naked her maltese poodle dog.
Although many dismiss her embrace of more accessible forms of punk as selling out, she's out to prove that it's more a result of her growth as both a songwriter and an individual. She was diagnosed with a heart aneurysm, but corrective surgery was ruled out. She has toured Europe, the United States, and Canada as a headlining act, and has performed on bills with Green Day, Snoop Dogg, Billy Idol, Dido, Devin Townsend, Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Chrissie Hynde, Foo Fighters, The Cult and more. It's a polished and more realized update of the raw and energetic sounds that made 's previous releases so enjoyable. I'm all for Bif Unplugged, but there needs to be some honesty in the promotion so I know ahead of time I'm really being sold a book.
A childhood of secret abuse, running away, targeted beatings by girl gangs, she was institutionalized for alcohol abuse as a teenager and sexually targeted, preyed upon by a long list of adult predators. Personal life She is heavily tattooed, getting her first, an Egyptian Eye of Horus, when she was 16. In January 2008, she announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy. With the album's prevailing theme of self-empowerment, walks a fine line between wanting more and having enough. If you want to promote a book, that's fine, but tell fans that's the show we can expect. All of this before her 21st birthday.

She is also a strict raw food vegan. The album does have some slower moments, but they are neatly slipped between the large helping of all-out rockers. It's already been a long, winding road. Bif's music has been featured in and on soundtracks for shows including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Moonlight, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven and Celebrity Deathmatch. Adopted by American missionaries, and after years of legal hurdles, eventually gaining her and her adopted sister's release from India they returned to North America.
