Slow Songs For Fast Hearts: Dear Joan Jett

Dear Joan Jett

You are a rockstar. You used to be my favourite rockstar. But not any more. I forgave you when you went to Afghanistan and played for the American troops. I thought that you were there to support the guys who accidentally ended up fighting in the war, not because you supported the war itself. But today I walked past a massive billboard with you on it. For Converse. I don’t know. I know I’m not perfect and that I’m a hypocrite, but being paid to be in an ad for Nike, wearing shoes made in sweat shops with child labour? And on that note, what is it with all these female musicians and their Nikes? Melissa and I were talking about it the other day, is it some joke we don’t get? Then again, male rockstars sell out all the time. Maybe it’s time the girls got paid.
