Janis is one of my heroes. Thinking about beauty, fashion and style, many of you would probably know that she was voted "ugliest man on campus" by a fraternity at UT Austin, but she absolutely transformed into a beautiful woman when she sang.
Janis was a free spirited woman, she didn't give a damn about fame. Janis went up on stage without switching her body into fame mode, she was just herself. Janis was passion. Listening to her singing never fails to move me. She sings from her heart and you can tell she means every word of those songs. She cuts her heart open and pours it out for all to hear. Janis... her heartbreak songs were from the truth of heartbreak, not some popular rendition of unrewarded lust.
She was quite simply cool, loved by millions and her music has a tone that just fills you with freedom and vibration. Janis is one of my greatest influences and I lie on the floor and completely open myself to her records and I let them wash all through me because they are beautiful. In my darkest hour, her voice fills me up with hope, it makes me believe again and again that I am not alone.
Isn't she just beautiful?
