LOS ANGELES—Joanna Angel, founder of adult empire BurningAngel, displays her musical talents in the premiere of “Gimme Some Pants,” a music video by Joanna Angel & The Gigolos. The new single was released by Gypsy Diamond and is featured in BurningAngel’s Band Sluts and available for download and streaming everywhere, including iTunes and Rdio.
The music video features Joanna Angel and Tommy Pistol in clips from the BurningAngel movie Band Sluts, as well as various other clips that were shot by director Mike Quasar specifically for the video. “There are many shots of us trying on pants,” Angel informed.

You've heard of "Sex, Drugs, and... Rock and Roll"? With Joanna Angel & the Gigolos, it's more like Sex, Sass, and Rock and Roll. Fronted by the Punk Rock Princess of Porn herself, Joanna Angel and her Gigolos are here to kick down the door of the party and have some fun with a sound that pulls from the classic punk rock and pop anthems that we all grew up with, sprinkled with the trademark Joanna Angel humor, a wink and a smile. Drawing from influences such as The Sounds, Blondie, Beehive and the Barracudas, and Sleater-Kinney, it's a whole lotta sass with a little bit of ass.
Her partners in crime are her Gigolos, "Small Hands" and "CL Lewis," from legendary pop-punkers Fenix TX, who do double duty as, well... gigolos... of course, when not writing and recording with Joanna.
Don't be mistaken, though: these aren't songs about gangbangs and HJs, Joanna is quick to point out. "Even though some might perceive a sexy element to the band, I didn't want the songs to be specifically about sex," Joanna stated, adding with a laugh, "You can see and hear enough of that stuff on BurningAngel.com. These are just fun songs that we have a good time writing and recording. Having fun is the main goal!"
Josh Grabelle, co-founder of Gypsy Diamond, and Joanna Angel have been friends since the 1990s as they both came from the New Jersey punk rock scene. Releasing new music from Joanna on his new pop label was an obvious choice, and he commented, "Joanna is a sweetheart and I have been following all her moves for over a decade. We are both cut from the same DIY cloth and have similar tastes and interests and I am excited to work with her on her new music!"
As both the star of many of BurningAngel's movies and the company's spokesperson and owner, Joanna Angel has stormed both mainstream and adult media. She's appeared in every major adult magazine (Club, Hustler, Picture Magazine, Adam Film World and Xtreme, to name a few) and has been featured in many tattoo magazines as well (some include Prick, Taboo, Inked and Savage). She has been featured on Fox News, Playboy TV, Fuse TV, G4 TV, KROQ Radio, as a regular on the Jason Ellis show on SIRIUS Radio, as a guest on the 2008 series premiere of TLC's LA Ink, and in a speaking role on Adult Swim's Children's Hospital.
Angel has also appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, The Village Voice, The New York Press, Esquire UK, Details and Penthouse, among others. Heeb magazine featured Joanna as its cover girl, naming her one of the Top 100 Up-and-Coming Jews in 2005, and The New York Post featured her as one of the Top 25 Sexiest New Yorkers in 2006.
BurningAngel has brought home several awards from all the major adult shows, including AVN, XRCO and YNOT. Some of its accolades include Best Porn Star Website, Best Web Premiere and Best Sex Comedy. From a college dorm room to national television, BurningAngel has made a mark in entertainment, and it's only just beginning.
