It just depends on what one would consider to be truly pretty. Which in term would make it an opinion. I can understand what you're saying, but there are many different terms of what "being pretty" means. Though, I am in agreement with a few people here, sure she's not the best looking person to come into music, but her music makes up for that indefinitely.

I see where you're coming from.....in any case, I tend to distinguish being PRETTY, BEAUTIFUL AND DOWN RIGHT HOT :)

Janis Joplin maketh me drool. Her personality brings an achin' to my heart. Her car says she had good taste and her choice in drugs tell me she was lonely.

Why couldn't I have been born earlier.

The woman is a babe. Yeah, you gotta live with a slightly weathered face and cigarette smoke but I could also live with the proceeds from her album sales and constant touring. If you know what I mean :D

To be pretty to "look at" and to be PRETTY are two diff things :):):):****:

Indeed...and I am looking at Janice's conventional outward appearance, which was gruff, far from graceful, unkempt, nondelicate, semi-masculine, unsightly, and a slew of other unflattering descriptives.

Sure everyone has a bad hair day, but when 98% of her public and private appearances has shown her looking bad....then I consider her NOT HOT!

She was a hippie, and she liked looking that way. I am not going to whack her for her outward character, but that doesn't mean I think it was Hot (attractive) at all. I feel the opposite, appearing unkempt and dirty is not flattering or pretty......


but I would bet my farm she was PRETTY fun to hang out with :)

I like fun. If I were a young pup back in her day, I'd have said to her "stop over, you bring the curves, dope and pizza. I'll bring the charm and bruskies."

I haven't chimed in yet and I have to be honest (and I'm not trying to be mean) but Janis looked to be a bit on the stinky side...so between the B.O. and cigars I would say nope...NOT HOT.

Like the music though.

Personally, I didn't think anyone was going to say she was hot...

I'm surprised the question was asked for whatever reason or reasons.

I love Janis. I have a soft spot for her. I wish she didn't mess around with heroine. A lot of rock stars messed with heroine in the early 70's. I'll never understand taking any drug that could kill you.
