Celebrities were way more scandalous than we thought at Studio 54 - Actor John Travolta graced the dancefloor with his presence

Nothing matches the hedonism of Ancient Rome, but New York City in the 1970s comes pretty close. As the Vietnam War raged on a hemisphere away, stars, party people, and hangers on flocked to Studio 54 from 1977 to 1980 to shake their groove things and get into trouble. Regardless of what you think of John Travolta in the current era, in the late ‘70s he was a jaw dropping heart throb that was famous for cutting up the dance floor.

There’s no way of knowing exactly what Travolta got up to while he was shimmying across Studio 54, but I think you can use your imagination and come up with something close to the truth.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
