Scarlett sings Tom Waits

This lass never ceases to amaze me and rarely disappoints. Not only is she looking fantastic and being the quintessential screen siren, now she does this:

Scarlett sings Tom Waits.
According to, actress Scarlett Johansson has signed a record deal and is recording her first album: Scarlett sings Tom Waits. The record might be released somewhere next spring by Rhino Records' recently reactivated Atco label.

I've always been surprised that more people haven't covered Tom Waits songs since they are great songs but to be frank (no cryptic pun intended) he doesn't have a great voice. Rod Stewart and the Eagles have covered some songs but not much else. I'm placing my pre-order right now. Hope she throws "The piano has been drinking (not me)" into the mix.

But, and I stand under correction, it's not the first time that she has stood up to the microphone - I believe she once guested as a member of the Pussycat Dolls.

On another note: They need to ban those Triumph underwear billboards scattered all over Jozi. These are far more dangerous and distracting than talking on my cellphone while driving. I nearly rear ended the vehicle in front of me on two separate occasions this morning.

Aaaaahhhh, Scarlett. Imagine the road carnage that would occur if she were plastered all over billboards in Jozi?

(of course, that's if I didn't climb up there and steal them for myself!)

In her underwear? Now there's a thought.

Stop thinking about it already :)
