As far as I remember reading in books about Janis was, Jerry was a big hero of her and she really wanted to see him and talk to him. She apprantly met him and introduced him her little sister which attracted Jerry far more, which he said to Janis. It wasn't a nice comment and so she slapped him into his face and the killer immediatly slapped back what surprised Janis a lot and made her angry!
I'm sure, he didn't know about Janis too much and he didn't care.
That's the story according to several books.
It is totally unique, that he mentioned her a lot of times for singing ME AND BOBBY MCGEE later. Maybe someone told him about her huge succes with the song.
