Behind The Music: Joan Jett
Joan Jett…..Gwyneth Paltrow
[Joan Jett is in a bar, facing a jukebox, then turns and faces the camera. “I Love Rock & Roll” plays in the background.]
Joan Jett: One time I was at this bar, you know, and there was this jukebox. And, um, my boyfriend said, “I love rock and roll. Put another dime in the jukebox, baby.” And uh I was like, “Okay.” So I put a dime in the jukebox. But uh, it didn’t work. Because jukeboxes take quarters. (laughs) Anyway, we went back to my boyfriend’s place, and he said, “Eat this bag of circus peanuts while I watch!” [laughter] He got a kick out of stuff like that. (shrugs) One time, he uh, this is a funny story – one time he had me take my shirt off and eat a can of dog food in front of his parents. They pretended to be horrified. We just laughed, and then got high with ’em. Those were heady days. (nods) Heady indeed.
