Samantha (on the left) was the talking voice of Jem/Jerrica and Britta was her singing voice. Together they created the greatest performer since Liberace. The truth is, Pizzazz was the one I felt a bond with since she was…well…the bitch. But without Jem!, there could be no Pizzazz, so she is a very important.
If you grew up in the 80s or you’re gay, you have to have a favorite Jem! song and mine is below. When I’m finally thrown on the dingy boat to Hell, this must be performed at my funeral by La Pequena (with accompaniment by Keyboard Cat):
Fun fact: This is also the song that plays in Gay Al Reynolds’ head whenever he sashays into a room.
