Chrissie Hynde is badass. Who else could pull off shaggy bangs her entire life?! Hynde's controversial comments about "rape victim blaming" almost overshadowed the release of her memoir last month.
"You know, if you don't want to entice a rapist, don't wear high heels so you can't run from him," Hynde explained during an interview. "If you're wearing something that says 'Come and fuck me,' you'd better be good on your feet. … I don't think I'm saying anything controversial, am I?"
The blogosphere went wild.
"You know what, I don't care what a lot of people want. You know?" Chrissie Hynde told NME. "I'd rather say, just don't buy the fucking book, then, if I've offended someone. Don't listen to my records."
