Janis Joplin's Final Interview

(YouTube link)

Village Voice journalist and radio personality Howard Smith interviewed Janis Joplin by phone on September 30, 1970. No one knew it would be her last interview, and four days later, the 27-year-old singer was dead. Now PBS Digital Studios presents that short interview in animated form.

Joplin talks about seeking approval and dealing with criticism, particularly from the feminist press, which oddly belittled her accomplishments. Even groundbreaking pioneers want to be loved. -via Metafilter
