Tabloid Whore!



Sweet baby Jesus! What will they come up with next? First we had Dancing with the Stars, then Skating with Celebrities and now, a CD is coming out in called "Unexpected Dreams, Songs From the Stars." According to the CD press release, celebs like Scarlette Johansson, Teri Hatcher, John Stamos, Jennifer Garner, Victor Garber, Ewan McGregor (ahhh remember Moulin Rouge? Love his voice!), Julia Louis-Dreyfus and more, sing their hearts out to "night music, lullabies and ballads" while being backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Parts of the proceeds for this cd will go to "Music Matters," which is the education program for the L.A. Phil. The album is set to be released on April 25th, but if you want to check out song snippets now (or have a good giggle) go here. Although I kept laughing while I listened to the samples, they actually don't sound terribly bad. But you KNOW a lot of the voices had to be sweetened, you just know it. Gah!

Ewan's voice is nice, but the horrors! The horrors! Unfortunately, I can't UN-listen to the vomitus of Scarlett singing a song she simply ain't got the chops for. My ears!

Aside from Ewan, Lucy Lawless (our very own Xena Warrior Princess) can sing and well at that. I guess if the CD were full of ALL crappy singers it wouldn't sell at all.
