Scarlett Johansson - Anywhere I Lay My Head

http://www.news.com.au/entertainment...-10388,00.html

above is the link of a news story about this project of her's

i personally am interested to find out what all the fuss is about, admittedly her being scarlett is a reason why people have taken so much interest into this upcoming release in the first place

if you read the article: the throw another actress's name who had a go at singing into the ring - milla jovovich on satellite of love on the million dollar hotel soundtrack

milla has since stuck to acting ... sort of, more like someone who is pretty face - who speaks as little as possible

Actually Milla released an album in 94(The Divine Comedy) that received some good critical acclaim, and had a single 'Gentlemen Who Fell' that was actually pretty good. Much better than her singing on the MDH.

She still releases song on her website, but has yet to release a follow up album.

I really like Milla's album. Good stuff.

I'm mildly curious about this Scarlett thing. I remain a bit skeptical.

I'm acutally looking forward to Zooey Deschanel's album.

But I have to say the best actress turned singer of recent is Jenny Lewis, she's kind of my new obsession...

There aren't many that have pulled it off successfully, I think it's probably much easier to do the other way around. Musicians that have become decent actors...

Wasn't Jenny Lewis a child actor? I don't know if child actors should count.

She was still acting well into her 20's... So I guess she was pretty legit.

Here's another vote for Milla's album.

Also, she had only been in a couple films when that album came out, so it certainly wasn't some kind of vanity project. She was probably making music before she was acting.

And Zooey has a voice sent down from the gods.

Scarlett gets major points for even WANTING to do an album of Tom Waits covers, and bonus points for getting David FUCKING Bowie to contribute guest vocals.

I've heard a couple of Minnie Driver's songs that I really like.

Didn't Ryan help her with some of her songs, I remember hearing something about that...

Yes. The songs I heard of hers were ones that came on freebie CDs with magazines, and I enjoy them. I'd like to check her out more.
