Scarlett’s Gonna Be a Pop Star
It makes perfect sense that the Sexiest Body in the World wants to be the next big singer.
The thing is, she’s actually pretty good! MUCH better than most of the other actresses-turned-singers we’ve seen in recent years. Although I must admit, I am one of the only people who liked Jennifer Love Hewitt circa “How Do I Deal?“
Nonetheless, Scarlett’s deep, rhaspy speaking voice works really well for her vocal stylings, and she already has the image to back it up.
Catch a snippet of her singing “Summertime” here, and check out her opening SNL last week making fun of Sanjaya, played by the hilarious Andy Sandberg here. She’s joking around, of course, but you can still hear her pipes.
This weekend, Scarlett made an appearance at Coachella, singing back up for Jim Reid of the band The Jesus and Mary Chain. I give her props not only for having the guts to get up onstage where thousands of fans come to see an awesome, impressive line-up, but also for wearing that outfit. Yikes.
Will Scarlett’s album be a hit, or will she fall victim to the actor-turned-singer syndrome, like Don Johnson and Jamie-Lynn Sigler? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out. And anything is better than Paris.
