Hello, reader. Thanks for stopping by. Here you'll find pop culture oozing out of the page, funky finds, criticisms, funny vids/pics, and just whatever I want to entertain you with.
Don't ask questions. Just take what I give you. Trust me, you'll like it.
Regarding the future Janis Joplin biopic that I've heard rumors about, they've all said Renee Zellweger will FOR SURE play the part. Well, I looked on her IMDB page and it doesn't even mention anything about Janis. Looks like Renee is in for another Bridget Jones installment. So I perused Google. Several sites listed Pink, Zooey Deschanel, Ellen Pompeo, Juliette Lewis, and Jennifer Tilly. What goes?
Is there really going to be a Janis movie? If so, can we please decide on someone who: A. looks the part, B. sings the part (atleast a little bit), and C. actually deserves to be Janis.
I mean, if they're seriously going to have Pink do it just because she kinda sorta sounds like her, then I think that's dumb. She doesn't look like Janis. Janis was rough. Pretty, but rough. Pink could be a supermodel, but she surely can't act(Remember Charlie's Angels II?). Renee could do it, I guess, but I don't think she could sing the role very well. And what's a good retelling of the story if you can't become the person, physically and mentally. I just can't imagine Renee getting up there on stage and feeling the music. She'd be squinting her eyes and lip synching. How awful. All I know is, whomever they choose, it better be a damn good one. Be spot on like they were with Joaquin in Walk the Line. Now that was good.
Who should play the part, you say? Oh I don't know. How about:
Amanda Overmyer. American Idol Top 10 Finalist. She sang a Janis song for her audition and cites her as an inspiration. Looks and sounds like the real deal.
**Note to Hollywood: Why not go with a relative unknown with all the qualities of Janis for the part? Hmm.....
Great quote from Janis:
"I don't believe in gate-crashing. The people aren't up there when I'm sweating on a stage at a festival, breaking my ass. You can get the money [to buy a concert ticket], man. Sell your old lady, sell your dope. Look at me, man, I'm selling my heart."
