Hello World I’m Your Wild Girl

large_Joan_Jett26

Her trademark sneer.  Raspy voice.  Androgynous sex appeal.   Fuck-you attitude.  Really, when you think about it, the only good thing to come out of the ’80s was Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.  

In case you haven’t noticed, Joan has been in the news lately because she’s working on her much-anticipated biopic The Runaways, which is about the proto-punk, all-girl band she co-founded in the 70s with drummer Sandy West.   Here’s the band:

 From left, Sandy West, Jackie Fox, Cherie Currie, Lita Ford, and Joan Jett.

You just know these girls are up to no good.  That’s lead singer Cherie Currie looking like a teenage tranny hooker (I say this with affection) in the fishnets and merry widow.  Seriously, what’s not to love?   I just hope the movie, which is due out next year, doesn’t disappoint.  Portraying Joan in the film will be Kristen Stewart, who’s looking pretty Jettish now that she’s sporting the rocker’s signature inky shag haircut.   

All this buzz about The Runaways means that I’ve been spending too much time on youtube watching clips of Jett.  I’ll admit it;  I’ve been swooning over this classic Blackhearts video:

Nowdays, Joan is still kicking ass and breaking hearts.  She’s a rock star who truly transcends categories and rises above cliches, lesbian icon or not.  And girls, did I mention she’s ripped?  And 51!  Holy shit.  I’m posting 2 relatively recent photos including one of Joan and Jenna Jameson, which I’ve shamelessly included just because I think J & J look hot together.  And because I love you, I’m putting a cherry on top from the underage, glam-rocking Queens of Noise themselves.  “Cherry Bomb,” of course. Enjoy!

  1. joan jett scares me in a very, very good way.
    and im not so sure about dakota fanning playing cherrie currie…but i’m actually rooting for kristen stewart on this one. she’s in the andro club, would you agree? there’s something about her. kind of like missy peregrym. but i’m anxious to see them all 80sed out and punked up.

    Hi AYL, Everyone is dubious about Dakota but I hope she pulls it off. As For Kristen Stewart’s vibe, I can’t comment. However, l just googled Missy Peregrym (since I had never heard of her) and wow–she’s sexy. How would I survive without you telling me about all the hot young andro/tomboy girls? Thanks, darlin. xo SF

    • oh anytime! now, what do you think of edie falco as nurse jackie? i had a post about it a few weeks back. it’s funny what a hair style and no makeup can do to a person!

      I haven’t seen the show yet but I like her in that pic you posted. xo SF

  2. holy crapola! look at Joan! 51!?!? ripped is right! is it warm in here, or is it just me???

  3. ah, joan jett! probably the only person in the world where my taste in women overlaps with my straight-boy friends’ tastes 😉

  4. WHEW! And on that note I am off to the gym….
