Patti Smith Is A Huge "Hunger Games" Fan, Wrote A Song For "Catching Fire" Soundtrack & Rocks A Mockingjay Pin

The Hunger Games book series and movies are hugely popular with a wide audience, but I was still surprised (and delighted!) to learn the legendary rock star and poet Patti Smith counts herself amongst its fans. In fact, Smith enjoys the series so much, she:

  1. Wears a mockingjay pin on her lapel and carries a mockingjay iPhone case.
  2. Has been known to hold her fingers up in the District 12 salute, which she says is “beautiful” and “brings tears” to her eyes, at concerts.
  3. She wrote a song for the “Catching Fire” soundtrack called “Capital Letter,” which, she explains, “[Is] like a letter to the Capitol, warning them about Katniss, but warning them in a proud way.” It includes the lyrics, “Rebellion has a heart / Breaking like the dawn / Bursting into song” and “She’s the silent one / In her silent boots / Racing through the flames.”

 One question remains: Team Peeta or Team Gale? [Vanity Fair]
