The Inside Scoop:Janis began making more aggressive decisions in the studio, thanks to Brooks' and arranger Ron Frangipane's generosity in teaching her about recording and arranging. In fact, she threw a member of her management team out of the studio during the recording of "At Seventeen" because they kept saying "You're blowing a hit!" She had gone completely broke making Stars and had to move into her mother's New York apartment for six months; she wrote "At 17" sitting at the dining room table, reading a New York Times Magazine article about debutantes that began "I learned the truth at eighteen". She sang it onstage with her eyes closed for a year, because she was convinced the audience would laugh at her.
