Bloom, Rachel

Tagged: Music | People

(?1987-    ) US comedian, writer and performer of the single "Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury" (2010). This song and its accompanying video (in which the pneumatic Ms Bloom poses in a schoolgirl costume clutching a photograph of Ray Bradbury to her bosom) parlayed its geeky lubriciousness into internet success. Though in essence a novelty song it was well-received by sf fans, becoming only the second musical text to be nominated for a best-related-work Hugo (the first being Paul Kantner's Blows Against the Empire).
