Joan Jett is 55 years old. Joan Jett is more bad ass than you will ever be, but she is 55 years old. She is beautiful, she is aged and she is a fabulous front woman. I have admired her for as long as I can remember. She’s a vegetarian too..fyi on that and provided me the ‘fuck you’ girl power element that my other love Chrissie Hynde didn’t push forth as strongly.
Joan (or Joanie as Iman refers to her-which btw I find fucking adorable) has just released this music video for the new single “Any Weather”. ‘Stay togethah in any weathah’ is the repetitive chorus that wont stick with you but will make you want to stick yourself in the eye with a knife.
Her voice is gorgeous. The broad still got it. With the help of some great lens filters she radiates rock Goddess and her leg stance reinforces her ownership of that guitar. But lyrically this song is a hunk of crap. It’s an insult to our ears to have to decipher such drivel coming from the voicebox of this queen.
We can stay together
Through any weather
We can stay together
We’ll make it through whatever
If we love
The video is supposed shot in a new format to make it more impactful
“Embedding the theme of the video in the form of my approach, cinematically-speaking – my camera crew and I ripped apart two state of the art cameras, exposing their guts and effectively turning them into 21st Century versions of crude, antiquated devices,” explains director Kevin Kerslake on the unique filming techniques used during the video shoot. “They were the digital filmic equivalent of two tin cans and a piece of string.”
It shows.. it really does. So we have a gutted stripped down video for a gutted stripped down lyric and poor Joan is left trying to make it work.. and she does.
She never ever disappoints.
