Our favorite vampire damsel in distress, Kristen Stewart, is taking time away from sucking face and blood with Robert Pattinson on the set of Twilight to slip into the hot leather pants of rock and roll legend Joan Jett in the highly anticipated biopic, The Runaways.
Before Joan fronted her burly band of Blackhearts, she was rocking hard alongside a band of foxy female Runaways, making some noise with the likes of fellow guitarist Lita Ford, Cherie Currie, Sandy West and Jackie Fox in the first teenage all-girl rock band to hit the mainstream with hits like "Cherry Bomb," "Queens of Noise," and "Born to Be Bad".
Taking a VH-1 Behind the Music look at the band from it's inception to the imminent breakup, The Runaways is getting a Marshall amp worthy level of feedback with gossip running amok surrounding Kristen's new mulletesque hairdo to a bad reputation rumor concerning a hyped up lesbian kiss between Kristen and Twilight co-star Dakota Fanning who plays Joan's cherie amour, Runaways' frontwoman Cherie Currie.
Personally, I Love Rock and Roll, so I'll be the first in line to decide whether Kristen can make a smooth transition from clumsy to Clashy. Word is she's getting guidance from Ms. Jett herself, so I'm guessing she won't fall A-flat.
In the meantime, kick out the jams with this Jam Tee from dELiA*s and this Ramones Tee from Alloy. Or if you only have eyes for Kristen as Bella Swan and aren't feeling her punk'ed up look, pick up BB Dakota's Bella Jacket worn in the movie available at Chickdowntown.com.
So come and take your time and dance with me.
