* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: If you take account on her... unconventionality.



* {{Jerkass}}: Was very much this to John's son Julian and tried to prevent them from ever becoming close. Thankfully she has failed. The two reconciled and were communicating before John's death.
** Her attempt to render John's first wife Cynthia into an UnPerson and to exclude her son Julian from his father's legacy have been noted, though. Yoko has distanced herself from the Liverpool side of Lennon's life and his surviving relatives there, to the extent of refusing to disclose to them the secret of Lennon's final resting place. Julian is not holding his breath on inheriting any of his father's substantial assets: as far as Yoko is concerned, John Lennon only had one son and it ain't Julian.

* AllThatGlitters: A few years ago she made considerable notoriety for "Promise Piece-Bones", taking a priceless 500 year old Ming vase and shattering it into pieces and handing each shard away, as a tribute to losing a friend (fellow Fluxus artist Nam June Paik) whom she considered more valuable than an old jar could ever be.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeMcCoolName: ''Yoko'' means "ocean child" in Japanese.
* BlueBlood: She was a descendent of the Yasuda clan of ''samurai'' warrior-scholars (who later founded the Yazuka ''zaibatsu'' conglomerate, centered on banking) on her mother's side, while her paternal grandfather was ennobled (into the Japanese ''kazoku'' nobility) in 1915.

After John Lennon left the Beatles, the two artists collaborated on music together - working together on very different projects all underneath the umbrella of "Plastic Ono Band." In 1971, Yoko Ono began to release a number of solo records. ''Fly'' - a double album that helped make her known for her caterwauling vocals. She also released two other, more conventional, albums during this time - ''Approximately Infinite Universe'' and ''Feeling the Space''. Although Yoko's work was poorly received initially, the albums have survived and aged well - proving to be part of the foundation of punk rock and new wave music.

Yoko collaborated together with John on his first three albums: ''Music/UnfinishedMusicNo1TwoVirgins'' (1968), ''Music/UnfinishedMusicNo2LifeWithTheLions'' (1968) and ''Music/WeddingAlbum'' (1969).

Ono collaborated with experimental luminaries such as Music/JohnCage and jazz legend Ornette Coleman. In 1961, years before meeting Lennon, she had her first major public performance in a concert at the 258-seat Carnegie Recital Hall (not the larger "Main Hall"). This concert featured radical experimental music and performances. She had a second engagement at the Carnegie Recital Hall in 1965, in which she debuted "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zfe2qhI5Ix4 Cut Piece]]," a seminal performance within the conceptual art movement.

Added DiffLines:

* WildHair: In her heyday. She's mostly remembered looking like such. On itself, it makes quite a unique silhouette and there's also the way it frames her face.
