The Incredible Things You Didn’t Know About The Best Frontwomen Of All Time

We bet even the most die-hard of fans among you will be surprised to hear what we've found out about some of the most iconic women in music history...

Grace Slick

Her striking stage presence and vocal style made Grace an icon of the 1960s psychedelic rock movement, but few know that she made history in 1969 as the first person to ever drop the F-word on live TV. Talk about rock ‘n’ roll…
 
Debbie Harry
A brown-haired Debbie rocked bunny ears at the Playboy Club in New York for five years before she met guitarist Chris Stein, went platinum blonde, and formed Blondie in 1973. 
Janis Joplin
We know that Janis could kick ass on stage like no one else, but it turns out that she was pretty tough in real life, too. The Big Brother and the Holding Company frontwoman was a third degree black-belt in Kempo Karate. Wow. Guess you don’t mess with a rockstar…
Patti Smith
Would you have guessed that Patti is a huge fan of David Jason’s work in ITV detective series A Touch of Frost? Nope, us neither…
Gwen Stefani
We all know that the No Doubt beauty can work a crop top like no other, but did you realise that she’s actually related to Madonna? The two songstresses are said to be distant cousins. What a dynasty…
Chrissie Hynde
Did you know that Chrissie once indadvertedly helped destroy a Macdonald’s restaurant? The Pretenders singer joked with a journalist that she had blown one up to support her vegan views and, when a misguided fan went out and actually blew one up in her honour, Chrissie had to apologise. Oops. Not a happy meal in sight…
Lauryn Hill
We definitely can’t picture this at all, but the Fugees diva was apparently childhood friends with Zach Braff, aka John Dorian in Scrubs… Huh?!
