Our newest Jetthead: Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has been talking about Joan Jett for a while now.

In August 2009, she told Matt Lauer on Today that Joan was one of her influences, and she’s been performing “I Love Rock and Roll” live during her most recent tour.

This week, Miley told MTV UK that:

“My favourite artist, the only person I listen to and who I’d like to work with is Joan Jett. For style and music she has a really cool vibe about her.”

Miley has also started singing a medley of Joan tunes during her shows: “I Love Rock-n-Roll,” “Cherry Bomb,” and”Bad Reputation”.

I think a lot of people might be upset that she’s singing these songs, but I’m not. Personally, I’m grateful that she’s opening her fans’ eyes to Joan Jett’s music.

Some people may think that Miley is just a poser who is capitalizing on The Runaways movie to make herself sound edgy. (Which is a little ridiculous since we all know no one saw that movie.)

I’m not a fan of her music, yet, but I prefer to cut her some slack. She’s a teenager now, and her tastes in everything are changing. She’s growing up. Even though I’m an old fart, I still remember what that feels like. Don’t you?

Check out Miley’s new video for “Can’t be Tamed”. You don’t have to like it, I promise. PEACE.

And, Miley, if you’re reading this like the closet Jetthead FREAK I know you are, HI!!! *waves*  😀
