Joan Jett walked into the hotel suite today for our interview looking like, well, a rock star. She is unmistakable with her trademark jet-black, spiked hair, an air of confidence (because hey, she's done this a few times), heavy eyeliner and dressed head to toe in rock star black.
We talked about the film "The Runaways," which is premiering here at Sundance. It focuses on Jett's early days on the music scene (1970s) with her all-girl group "The Runaways". Kristen Stewart ("Twilight's" Bella) portrays Jett.
Jett, who’s also executive producer on the film, told me she's psyched about how it turned out and feels Kristen did a stellar job.
After our chat, Joan surprised my photographer Chris and me with a real treat... her album "Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Greatest Hits," which doesn't come out until March 9. She then grabbed a sharpie and wrote "To Brooke... Keep Rockin'... Love, Joan Jett." So cool. Oh yeah, this chick is also eco-friendly - the album packaging is made from 100% recycled paper. "I love rock 'n roll"... don't you?
