Janis Joplin


“In my insides, it really hurts if someone doesn’t like me. It’s silly.”

Listen to Janis Joplin’s final interview—where she shows a more vulnerable side—with Howard Smith of The Village Voice on September 30, 1970. This was recorded just four days before Joplin died from a heroin overdose at the Landmark Motor Hotel in Hollywood.

Joplin talks about rejection and why some women may have disliked or been intimidated by her strong female rock persona.
