E-MAIL GONE ASTRAY: An e-mail that claimed to be written by Joan Jett made the media rounds Tuesday slamming Rolling Stone’s Oct. 4 "Women in Rock" issue, ranting about those female stars who were featured and complaining that Jett only got one line in the issue. The letter claims that Rolling Stone received the letter after its Women in Rock issue came out, but hasn’t run it.
"Jewel and Mandy friggin’ Moore have full page features as Rock Icons...Meanwhile Joan Jett gets one line. One line," the letter says.
It turns out the letter wasn’t written by Jett, but was penned by Maya Price, a female musician with her own rock band. In fact, Jett’s Web site, joanjett.com, has the entire letter on its site, with the disclaimer that it wasn’t written by Jett.
A spokesman for Wenner Media said he received several phone calls from reporters about it, and that Rolling Stone has received the letter and plans to run it in its next issue.He said he didn’t know who the writer was, but that she must be "a diehard fan."

The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
