i seem to remember that it was a female. but that could be because I tend to think of "-a" being feminine.

She was female, as stated in the Wikipedia article. And that's also what I remembered.

She was a female. Trust me. I met her in 1957 in Leningrad before she became famous.

She told me she would drop me a line someday but since she achieved stardom, she never called me back. Stupid arrogant whore. I deserved better than her anyway.

And don't be jealous, you should be happy for her rise to fame.
