One of my favourite photos of Joanie.
"There’s this insane attitude about women which really fucks me and my plans up. All that shit about me and Kurt—‘She’s just a money grabber bitch whore slut.’ Let’s get one thing straight: I adore him. I worship him. I went through all the shit and pain and inconvenience of being pregnant for nine whole fucking months because I wanted some of his beautiful genes inside there, in that child. I wanted his babies. I saw something I wanted, and I got it. What’s so fucking bad about getting what you want?" - Courtney Love
No one ever said babies weren’t cute.

Joan Jett, in my opinion, is the true definition of girl power. She is one of the few females on the Rolling Stones’ list of 100 Greatest Guitarists. Being in the rock genre of the music industry is surely not the field where women usually explore. But this Pennsylvania-born girl marked a spot in history as one of the most influential rock stars of her time.
Jett kick started her career by forming the band The Runaways alongside 4 other girls in 1975. The band members were mostly underaged but that didn’t stop them. They toured the world and supported bands like Ramones, Van Halen, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The band disbanded in 1979 with Joan Jett taking the lead in the last few albums. There is a movie documenting the band’s formation titled The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie.
After going solo for awhile, Joan Jett formed a new band called Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. This band went on and performed now-popular songs like I Hate Myself For Loving You and I Love Rock ‘n Roll. She is from then on dubbed Godmother of Punk and the Original Riot Grrrl. The Riot Grrrl was an underground feminist punk rock movement in the early 90’s.
She was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
She went on with a solo career up until today. She is known to be feminist and animal-lover who has participated in various charity events where she performed and donated. She even received the Nanci Alexander Activist Award for her work on behalf of animal welfare.
This proves that the stereotype that out parents had put on punk rock making it seem like a bad influence is ultimately wrong. There are many punk rockers who do more good deeds than, say, jazz musicians. I wouldn’t know, of course. Punk rock is, after all, about rebelling against the system; anarchy and all that. It defines a generation, and musicians like Joan Jett practices what she preaches.
IT’S ALWAYS TEA TIME!
People with anxiety:
- Know the worry is irrational
- Want to calm down but can’t
- Hate the fact that breathing feels like you are trying to breathe rocks instead of air
- Feel like they are drowning and suffocating. Telling them to just take a breath and calm down doesnt help.
- Want to stop shaking but can’t control their limbs.
- Just plain feel horrible and embarrassed.
