I’m going to admit it, when I was a teenager I loved Joan Jet! I’m dating myself here, but so what! I had a poster of her on my wall and dressed like the bad ass she was by wearing spiked leather bracelets. I don’t think anyone believed that I was a bad ass since in addition to my spikes I wore a Catholic school girl uniform. Oh well – I tried.
Joan Jett doesn’t wear spiked leather bracelets anymore. In fact, she’s gone vegetarian. Here’sΒ what she says in a PETA interview: “Cutting meat out of your diet is the best thing you can do for animals and your own health. Did you know it’s one of the best things you can do for the planet too? Factory farming is one of the biggest contributors to the most serious environmental problems. The meat industry causes more greenhouse gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, planes and ships in the world. So what are you waiting for? Kick the meat habit and see how it rocks your world.”
And yes, that’s Joan, lounging on what looks to be the happiest pig in the world (except, of course, for my pig blogger buddy, Bacon).
