Gogoosh’s 73rd birthday celebration was held on the sidelines of her Kuwait concert
She reached the pinnacle of her fame and success toward the end of the 1970s. In the 1970s, Googoosh was widely emulated by women, as they copied her clothing (miniskirts) and her short haircut (known as the “Googooshi”). Following the Revolution in 1979, she remained until 2000 and did not perform again during that period due to the ban on female singers. Younger generations have rediscovered her music via bootleg recordings. After leaving in 2000, she performed a total of 27 concerts in European and North American countries that year. Recent projects include a new collaboration with singer-songwriter Hassan Shamaizadeh from her 2012 album Ejaz, as well as serving as head judge and head of academy for the popular reality show Googoosh Music Academy broadcast on London-based satellite channel Manoto 1.
