    Despite two decades of success, Jewel has never been able to escape sexual harassment.

    “I’ve had men hitting on me, sadly, since I was really young. At 8, I had men putting dimes in my hands saying, ‘Call me. It’d be so great to f–k when you’re older.’ And just horrible stuff,” the “You Were Meant For Me” singer, 41, explained in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

    The harassment was at its peak just before the Alaska native broke through in the mid-‘90s when she was living out of her car in San Diego (until it was stolen) after she’d been fired from her job at a coffee shop for refusing to sleep with her boss.

    “I’ve never been more propositioned by businessmen in my life. It was almost like they were sharks that could smell blood, like of vulnerability,” she said. “I’d go back to my car, writing songs, and men would literally come up and proposition me. They would be like, ‘Hey, do you need rent money?’ you know and things like that. It was pretty wild. I never took anybody up on it, but it was interesting to see this side of men that basically would prey on somebody vulnerable.”

    Despite the constant pressure, Jewel has never given in, something that makes her immensely proud as she looks back on her career.

    “The music industry is a very male-dominated business,” she said. “I never slept my way to the top, ever. There was never one time I’ve ever compromised anything. I was always willing to walk away … And I think that type of spirit that you bring just informs everybody that’s around you. You know, I’ve heard plenty of stories that the opposite happens.”

    Jewel’s 12th album, “Picking Up the Pieces,” was released on Friday.

    hitting on an 8 year old is a little gross

    but hitting on a good looking young lady who is living in her car is sound policy


    there is another side to men?

    "Wah, people want to fuck me".

    Let's ask this young lady if she would like to trade places with Jewel.

    I for one would not hesitate to hook up with this young woman.
    We would definitely have to go slow and ease into the oral though.

    Jewel is what Hitler was talking about when he wanted an Aryian Master Race.

    Not sure I buy that story. Pervs don't say that to 8 year olds. They bang them, they don't say, "I want to fuck you when you turn 18"

    For some reason I remember Howie interviewing her and she seemed like a really cool chick and really digs her husband who's a big tough guy from the PBR and Howie kept going for the sex info and she wasn't interested in talking about it, but he kept pressing and pressing and I thought made a complete fool of himself because I thought she was very interesting otherwise. And it was obvious what a fucking homo girly man he is when compared to her husband. She told a story where he though his buddy's tie was goofy so he took out his pocket knife and cut it the fuck off him ... which I thought was hysterical, because I have buddys like that (I might be one too) and he was genuinely horrified, like the guy was some kind of psycho. Fucking fag he is. I found out she grew up in AK, where the men are rugged, not a bunch of NYC sissy boys. I lived up there for a couple of years and I always take a special interest when I find out about anyone who's actually from there. Ramble, ramble, ramble ramble.....

    Yeah, I hate to question someone's telling of their past, but this story reeks of BS

    The fake story here Mike Walker is that Jewel has 12 albums, who is continuing to put her on their label, when was her last hit?

    It's the same old bullshit. Men are pigs and perverts. The war on men continues.
