Rosemarie Heinikel (1946) is a German writer, singer and actress, nicknamed "Rosy Rosy".

She became an icon of German subculture in the 1960s and 1970s. She lived in a hippie commune where she befriended Donovan and Frank Zappa during his infamous concert in Berlin in 1968. Heinikel wrote a erotic book, "Softgirls" (1970) and her autobiography "Rosy Rosy" (1971), in which she describes a sexual encounter with Zappa back in '68.

Heinikel was also musically active. She sang with the German rock band Guru Guru and together with Inner Space (later Can) she released her first single in 1968, "Agilok & Blubbo"/"Kamera Song".

Heinikel also acted in films by directors Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog and Ingmar Bergman.
