High performance, yes. Low maintenance, no.

If sixty minutes on the life of Shania Twain seems like fifty minutes too many, blame your Birthstar, because it's bands like Fleetwood Mac that made VH1's Behind The Music an hour-long show. Fleetwood Mac was a ménage à cinq in perpetual breakup mode during their 1970s heyday -- pick any two members of the band circa 1977, and if they weren't sleeping together, then they probably weren't speaking to each other. Yet out of this interpersonal train wreck came one of the biggest albums of all time, Rumours, and a string of decade-defining hits like Landslide, Rhiannon, Say You Love Me, Don't Stop, and Go Your Own Way. While it cannot be said that the forces of relationship stability were entirely absent from the pop universe of the late 1970s (see: Captain and Tennille), they were most decidedly held at bay at the moment of your birth, when your combative, incestuous, and prolific Birthstar ruled from its perch among the deceptively Massive forces of the constellation Tip of the Iceberg. Your own personal life is more likely to feature chaos than calm, but to paraphrase Graham Greene, thirty years of warfare and terror under the Borgias gave Italy Michelangelo and the Renaissance, while five hundred years of democracy and peace gave Switzerland the cuckoo clock.
