Live in Ontario? Looking for a Home? Call Kittie Drummer Mercedes Lander!
Shocking, heart-breaking news, everyone: being the drummer in Kittie for seventeen years will not make you rich. Hard to believe, I know. Times are tough all over.
But fret not for the members of everyone’s favorite Canadian all-female quartet — or, at least, not for drummer/founding member Mercedes Lander. Taking a cue from Ronnie DeVoe of New Edition/Bell Biv DeVoe fame (yeah, I went there), Ms. Lander is now selling real estate for Envelope Real Estate Brokerage, Inc.
Which, no joke, is a swell job. I mean, assuming she’s more skilled at selling real estate than she is at making metal that shitheads like me won’t make fun of, she probably made more money while I was typing this than most people will all year.
Perhaps most importantly, Landers’ success is a terrific lesson in what a friend once called “upward mobility.” Which is to say, sure, she’s got ink and piercings and shit…
…but she cleans up real nice, too:
And that, friends, is reason #682,395,402 why you never burn an inverted crucifix into your forehead.
