Oprah Winfrey celebrated Rock Goddesses on her April 13 show, and united them with younger artists that they inspire. Stevie Nicks did a heart-stopping version of “Landslide” with Sheryl Crow, and Joan Jett sang a medley of “Bad Reputation”, “Cherry Bomb”, and “I Hate Myself for Loving You” with Miley Cyrus. Also featured: Pat Benetar, Salt-N-Pepa, and Sister Sledge.
Joan looked and sounded fantastic! The interview was too short, as always, but Joan looked like she was enjoying herself, and that’s all that matters. I’m not a fan of Miley’s music, but I can tell she’s a genuine fan and I think her voice works well with Joan’s music.
