What Do You Think About Actresses Like Scarlett Johansson Releasing Albums?

Actors Releasing Albums – Yay or Nay?

As you probably know, Scarlett Johansson is releasing an album of Tom Waits covers - Anywhere I Lay My Head. You may not know that David Bowie is contributing backing vocals to it on songs "Falling Down" and "Fannin Street", which I think adds kudos to the record. He said of the album,

"All I contribute are these oo's and ah's on a couple of tracks... (I) laid down my humble parts in an hour or so, double and sometimes quadruple-tracking them.... The songs are great, really good Tom Waits stuff, and Scarlett's performances are mystical and twice cool. She creates a mood that could have been summoned by someone like Margery Latimer or Jeanette Winterson."

Praise indeed. But what do you think about actors and actresses releasing albums? Are you curious to hear their tunes? Lindsay Lohan, Vanessa Hudgens, Hilary Duff, and now Scarlett? Hmmm. Well, remember Kylie started on Neighbours!

i think that it's a little off putting that so many actors think that they are singers as well but i guess more power to them. i have to sadly admit that i have lindsay's album, and it's not THAT bad.

At first I wasn't very excited about it, I love Tom Waits and as much as I love Scarlett, I didn't think she was that good at singing. But she's got all those cool collaborations, and now David Bowie!!! I'll check it out, that's for sure, but I hope she sticks to acting.

I love Tom Waits and I hate Scarlett Johansson. I don't want to hear this album it will ruin his songs.

I think that you have to be extremely talented to be able to do both things if you got the talent go for it...but honestly I'm not very enthusiast when I here that an actor will be realising an album they usually make mediocre ones. I am very curious to here Scarlett's album though :)
