The Muppets' Janice on Love and Relationships with Unavailable Men

In Shine's exclusive interview, rock icon and lead guitarist for The Electric Mayhem Band Janice talks about love, life and, like, everything else, fer sure.

Shine: Why are women obsessed with rock musicians and other unavailable men?

J: Unavailable men, whether they're rockers or not, are like always totally hot….At least until they become available, and you realize all that intense attitude and quirky behavior is, like, totally annoying. The difference with rockers is, they're louder and tend to, like, use up all your hair care products.

Shine: Who is your female rock idol and why?
J: Oh wow! I got so many rock goddesses in my pantheon. (Which is like a hall of fame, not a sportscar. Groovy, huh?) Definitely Joan Jett, Chrissie Hynde, Aviril Lavigne, Janice Joplin, Hayley Williams, Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks…….etcetera, like, etcetera… Why are they my idols? Whoa, like, if you, like, have to, like, ask…then there's no way I can, like, explain. Listen and you'll totally grok what I'm talkin' about.

Shine: What's the best thing you've learned from being on the road?
J: They can never build too many rest stops….Good shock absorbers are a must….Make sure the windows on your tour bus open…. never buy an off-brand GPS that tells you to go straight when you reach the the edge of the cliff…..Don't let Animal drive….and most of all enjoy the ride.

Shine: What's your favorite love song?
J: "God Only Knows" by Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. It's pure perfection. It makes me smile and cry at the same time

Shine: Which singer/musician would you most want to date?
J: My main squeeze remains my band mate and our bass player, Floyd Pepper. So it would be wrong for me to, like, lust after another rocker. But, I gotta say, even after all these years, Keith Richards still makes me weak in the knees. He's like Justin Bieber for rocker girls.
