Chrissie Hynde Memoir, Reckless
Actors front lady Chrissie Hynde’s memoir, Reckless, didn’t formally go on sale until today, however Hynde has as of now been in the headlines for over a week, for provocative remarks she made while examining incidents chronicled in the book.
If you haven’t been following the story, the most annoying of those occurrences goes like this: A 21-year-old Hynde meets a bunch of Hells Angels while going by a friend of a friend at the Cleveland City Jail. For all intents and purposes out cold on quaaludes, she consents to go with only them to their home for “a party.” Once there, the bikers force her to strip, throw matches at her naked torso, and sexually ambush her.
All alone, this would be plenty newsworthy. Be that as it may, the most stunning part of this stunning story is the thing that the singer took away from it. “Now, give me a chance to guarantee you that, in fact talking, in any case you need to take a gander at it, this was all my doing and I assume full liability,” she composes. “You can’t fuck around with people, particularly people who wear ‘I Heart Rape’ and ‘On Your Knees’ identifications.”
Furthermore, when gotten some information about the episode in an interview with the Sunday Times a week ago, Hynde multiplied down. “In case I’m strolling around in my underwear and I’m drunk, who else’s fault would it be able to be?” she said. “In case I’m strolling around and I’m humbly dressed and I’m keeping to myself and somebody assaults me, then I’d say that is his fault. . . . You know, whether you would prefer not to entice a rapist, don’t wear high heels so you can’t keep running from him. In case you’re wearing something that says, ‘Come and fuck me,’ you would be advised to be great on your feet.”
Any individual who has perused Hynde’s interviews throughout the years realizes that the singer is provocative and frank. This is the same Hynde, after all, who in 1987 told People magazine that eating an animal was similar with eating one’s own child, and who in 2003 said in front of audience, “We deserve to get bombed. I trust the Muslims win!”
