I’d Give a Paycheck to Rock Like Joan Jett!

Written by PETA | October 27, 2008

Well hot diggity, she’s done it again! The world’s original female rock star has kindly chosen to use her powers for good by taking the time to shoot a new PSA for us. Just in case you hadn’t heard, in addition to being a trailblazing icon, Joan is also an outspoken animal rights activist (not to mention that I’ve had my hair blown back by her bangin’ music).

The Songwriting Hall of Famer doesn’t just toss us a bone now and again by lending us her celebrity; this vegan actually talks about animal rights to every interviewer and audience that will listen. Her refreshing outlook and activism include a passion for the environment as well. Her latest CD, Sinner (which is rockin’ in my earphones right now), actually comes to you loud and direct in 100 percent recycled packaging.

Because she gets the big picture, she’s obviously the perfect candidate to give a spiel about why going vegetarian is most important favor we can do for the only planet we have. Check out the snappy, fact-filled veggie testimonial she did for us here:

    I would love to have the Chance to meet Joanie i know she is a very open and outspoken kind person. I don’t eat as much meat anymore either anymore. I have to eat a little meat due to being anemic but i don’t eat a whole lot of it i mostly like veggie dinners especially fried green beans they are really good. Joanie has been my inspiration for over 25 years and i really look up to her big time thanks Joanie for being there for me love yah girlfriend!! Love Hugs Beth xoxoxo

  • karen k says:

    Joan has always been an inspiration to me not only musically but personally. Truly makes me want to become true to my love of animals as I have a few I consider children of mine. It is said to change the world takes one person one person makes ten more etc. My conclusion is lead by example. Joan has always been a true leader.

  • Autumn says:

    I love Joan Jett! i saw her up in Ny even though im from TX. She is a well rounded individual. D im not a total vegitarian but after what i researched becuase of her im trying to cut back. I love Rock and Roll!

  • Mikki says:

    It doesn’t get better than Joan for a spokesperson! She is amazing!

  • Mark. Rivera says:

    Joan Jett is my heroin! I’ve seen her three times in California! When Joan and the blackhearts come out to do their opening number they hit that stage running! She sings about a “Bad Reputation” and I like her style. She has a great view about animals health and the environment!

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Love Joan’s video. She just spells it out with no BS just like her music.

  • Danielle Amodeo says:

    Not that i want people to die but with the whole meat scare i was like good thing i don’t poison myself with that stuff!! Joan Jett is the GREATEST!!!

  • Danielle Amodeo says:

    I’m a vegan so i totally support everything she just said and i’m a huge Blackhearts fan!! I totally get what she’s saying about everything but especially about what she said about what people say to her about the protein thing!! I guarantee you that every person that asks that question is not getting enough protein themselves!!!

  • Saucy says:
