She lived Gia's life before Gia did. Nico, born Christa Paffgen to a father who died in Hitler's army, had a small part in La Dolce Vita, hawked all kinds of junk on TV commercials, moved to the states and became one of Andy Warhol's entourage, hooked up with Lou Reed, Jackson Browne, and Jim Morrison, started her own singing career, and ended up a worthless heroin junkie, dead at 49. That's probably 20 years more than she should have lasted, considering the paucity of her talents, but catching a look at what took a gorgeous kid, full of life, into a rare freak show is certainly worth a look.
