Janis Joplin talks about rejection four days before she died in 1970


“In my insides, it really hurts if someone doesn’t like me. It’s silly.”

Listen to Janis Joplin’s final interview—where she shows a more vulnerable side—with Howard Smith of The Village Voice on September 30, 1970. This was recorded just four days before Joplin died from a heroin overdose at the Landmark Motor Hotel in Hollywood.

Joplin talks about rejection and why some women may have disliked or been intimidatedby her strong female rock persona.
