They're gonna put up a fight!
In light of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie's lawsuit against Main Man Records for attempting to release a tribute album in homage to their band, The Runaways, called Take It Or Leave It: A Tribute to the Queens of Noise, without their permission, the record label has responded, claiming that the recording was made "with the best of intentions," and the proceeds were to raise funds for cancer research!
Furthermore, the label has yet to receive a copy of the suit, but plans to fight it when it comes.
Frankly, regardless of what the intentions were, if they don't have their permission, we don't see what makes them think it's okay to put this out!
What do U think?? Should this album get released?

For a minute there we were getting déjà vu!
At Thursday night's premiere of Twilight: Eclipse, the always lovely Dakota Fanning was wearing an Elie Saab Haute Couture dress that was almost identical to another Elie Saab frock she wore to the premiere of The Runaways back in March.
She looks good, so we can't really argue about her choice.

Joan Jett and Cherie Currie of The Runaways know a little bit about longevity. The two have been rocking out for decades and felt they could offer advice to the world's biggest star, Lady GagG.
"I'll tell you, The Runaways, when we started, we didn't have this sort of craziness around us. Really the only time when there was insanity, as far as the press goes, was Japan … it wasn't a 24-hour media world at that point. I think it's very difficult if you had to be dealing with this all the time. It's tough to incubate and do the work you need to do with people in your face."
Cherie, who became a drug counselor after leaving the group, has other advice.
"You know you have got to try to keep your wits about you," she said. "There is so much expected from you. But try to limit yourself to just two … as long as it is in drinking form, just two [drinks].
Whether she takes the words of wisdom or not, we're pretty sure Gagaloo will be around for quite some time!

She's just looking implausibly youthful for her age!
Last night, rocker Joan Jett strolled the red carpet for her new biopic The Runaways, alongside the likes of Cherie Currie and
that swamp rat wrapped in tin foil Kristen Stewart.
We don't know, but it looks like Joan's sporting a younger looking face.
She does look amazing at 51-years-old. Worth every penny!

We're really loving her outfit choices lately!
Last night, Dakota Fanning wore a beautiful Elie Saab Haute Couture cocktail dress to the New York premiere of The Runaways.
The hand embroidered nude dress is just perfect for the young actress. It's formal, but playful at the same time!
What do U think of her ensemble???
