‘I’ve always thought that Hedi Slimane was little more than a carpetbagger’.
It’s simple, if you were a celebrity in Hollywood you were attending the show

Get your 70s glam on folks, if that’s your thing.
All humans have valid feelings and rights! I want to use my voice as a megaphone to young people everywhere and encourage human evolution. No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status. That’s why Happy Hippies are here to say that every life is valuable!

Elvis Costello opened for the Who a coupla years ago at a benefit gig, but you’d have to go as far back as the Clash to find an opening act as great as Joanie for these cats. Because, yes indeed folks, Joan Jett is the opening act at the Who’s 50 Anniversary gigs in May 2015.
In an effort to keep their profit up the lingerie lines was designed in hopes that rock and roll sexiness would be their niche’ unfortunately their current client base is about 12, so … yeah… that’s awkward.
