The Joan Jett Barbie Doll was released in December of 2009 as part of Mattel’s Ladies of The ’80s Barbie Doll collection (which also included dolls created in the likeness of Debbie Harry and Cindy Lauper). While the doll is no longer being manufactured, a quick Google search reveals that the fashionable and highly collectible Ms. Jett can be purchased at various locales on the Interwebs for between $44 and $56 — quite reasonable for such a find! Happy hunting!
This weeks’ breaking story about former Missing Persons’ lead singer Dale Bozzio hoarding and mistreating dozens of cats is sad on so many levels. Not just for the fact that Bozzio neglected numerous pets to the point where they either died on their own or had to be put down due to illness, but because this situation shows just how far she’s fallen since she was a New Wave Popstar Queen back in the ‘80s. People worshippedDale Bozzio back then. And now she’s just a crazy cat lady living in a filthy log cabin in the middle of nowhere and trying to get her fifteen minutes back. That’s just sad.
