Had Janis Joplin still been here to celebrate her 71st birthday this week on January 19th, she would’ve had many reasons to belt it out.
These days she’s not only getting standing ovations on Broadway, thanks to the new hit show, A Night With Janis Joplin, but a documentary about her is also set to release. She’s made a splash in the fashion world, too, with the debut of her clothing line and will be coming soon to a zip code near you when the U.S. Postal Service issues a stamp in her honor.
Not bad for a small town self-proclaimed “misfit” from Texas.
