Pink Is A Reincarnation Of Janis Says Director

Rocker PINK is the reincarnation of late music legend JANIS JOPLIN, according to Hollywood director PENELOPE SPHEERIS.

The WAYNE'S WORLD movie maker cast the pop singer in the role of Joplin in THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JANIS after her 12-year-old daughter suggested the GOD IS A DJ hitmaker.

Spheeris enthuses, "She's got Janis' spirit, and sometimes I even think about reincarnation, I swear, because it's so close to home.

"I know that sounds weird, but I think about that when I look at the work that Pink can do."

Despite initial concerns about Pink's lack of acting experience - who had only cameod in CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE - Spheeris knew she had found her Joplin during Pink's screen test.

Spheeris says, "It's pretty awesome. Inevitably the people that look at it say, 'Oh my God, I just got chills.'

"The kids' music that she does, it doesn't show her real voice. Pink's got the most awesome voice I've heard outside of Janis Joplin."
