Cyrus described Jett as 'superwoman' during induction speech
Joan Jett, Dave Grohl and Miley Cyrus performed together at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last night (April 18).
The trio came together to play some of Jett’s back catalogue as she was inducted into the Hall Of Fame, with her band The Blackhearts.
They played ‘Bad Reputation’, ‘Crimson & Clover’ and ‘Cherry Bomb’ – by The Runaways, the all-girl ’70s punk group Jett was once a member of – together. You can watch a clip of the performance at the top of the page.
Cyrus had previously given a speech inducting Jett into the Hall Of Fame, during which, Rolling Stone reports, she described her as “superwoman”. She also told the audience of the first time she “wanted to have sex with Joan Jett.”
She recalled: “We were doing Oprah together, and I went up to Joan’s hotel room. Joan opens the door, and I come in, and Kenny Laguna is laying in bed. I don’t know what the fuck is going on. There’s towels shoved underneath all the door cracks, shower caps around all the smoke detectors. Joan is running around spraying orange-smelling cleaner to mask the smell of the pot (that’s what you guys call it), and we go into her bathroom.”
Cyrus continued: “The show was where new artists got to perform with their idols, and I wanted to perform with Joan, of course. And we were in her bathroom, and we were smoking and just talking, and this was one of the moments in my life where I wanted to be as present and absorb everything that she said to me. I listened to her talk about her days with the Runaways. She talked about music. She talked about why she loves animals, and she doesn’t want to eat them. I was getting to have this moment with someone that, to me, is Superwoman. What Superwoman really should be.”
