Kennedy’s off-the-wall memoir reliving the music and the madness as an MTV VJ in the 1990s

Back when MTV still played music, the outrageous, outspoken VJ Kennedy was thrust headfirst into the world of fame, gaining a new perspective on music and unparalleled access to the most talented artists of the era.

Despite her young age, Kennedy boldly asked the taboo questions that no one else would. In the midst of the alternative revolution and the birth of grunge, she talked to everyone from fame-averse Seattle musicians to vapid celebrities, navigating between true artists and phonies. Fame followed Kennedy wherever she went, and her riotous memoir dishes a plethora of celebrity encounters: dragging Jon Stewart to a strip club, getting naked with Jenny McCarthy, making out in a coffin with Dave Navarro, and even inspiring the Goo Goo Dolls song ""Name."" Interspersing her memoir with priceless interviews with such game-changers as Henry Rollins, Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, and Pat Smear of Nirvana, Kennedy presents  a juicy and revealing narrative perfect for the Gen Xers that grew up with her and MTV.

In her characteristically edgy and irreverent voice, Kennedy chronologically picks up where the recent hit book I Want My MTV left off and holds nothing back as she offers candid accounts of Courtney Love, diva Tabita Soren, and reality-TV star ""Puck"" Rainey. The Kennedy Chronicles is the ultimate insider’s look at the golden age of MTV during the years of Alternative Nation, MTV Beach House, and The Real World.

“Kennedy brought a sweet, sharp, daffy intelligence to MTV that could never be replaced after she left. The good news: It's still in full flower.”
—Kurt Loder

“A mix of Terry Southern's Candy Christian and Woody Allen's Zelig, Kennedy's story is an irresistible story of sex, drugs, and rock 'n'roll that helps explains why the '90s were so goddamned great.”
—Nick Gillespie, editor-in-chief of reason.com and reason TV

“Remember when MTV played music videos and interviewed rock stars? That was a lot of fun. And no VJ had more fun than Kennedy, who could incite the passions of MTV viewers while merely introducing a Slaughter video. I love this memoir, which chronicles her unlikely rise to fame, the sex-themed prank that ankled her career, and her post-VJ adventures – her book has the same snappy wit she brought to her TV appearances. And it's entirely free of Slaughter videos.”
—Rob Tannenbaum, co-author of I Want My MTV
