Scarlett Johansson Is Starting An All-Girl Band


First of all. Can we talk about the fact that a Scarlett Johansson song was nominated for an Oscar this year? I totally missed that! The actress sings Before My Time, an original song from the documentary Chasing Ice, and although they lost to Adele’s Skyfall, the song is really beautiful. ScarJo’ s been known to dabble in music and recently she announced that she’s starting an all-girl band. Sigh. I love all-girl bands, lol! Click inside to learn more about Scarlett’s latest venture!

Paste Magazine has the story:

Actress Scarlett Johansson announced Monday on Live! with Kelly and Michael that she is starting an all-girl band called the One and Only Singles, according to Spin.

And it seems Johansson has always had the music in her.

Her all-girl band announcement follows her Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for the song “Before My Time,” from the documentary Chasing Ice. (Adele won on Sunday with “Skyfall.”)

Johansson also has an album of Tom Waits covers and a collaboration with Pete Yorn under her belt as well. Currently, Scarlett Johansson is starring in a Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

I don’t know a lot about Scarlett’s music career… so I’m gonna assume that it really hasn’t popped off all like that. Still, I’m kind of excited to see where this all-girl band goes. Who’s into it? And who’s auditioning, lol?

    OMG seriously! Scarlett Johansson kind of bothers me a bit, but I can’t really put my finger on the reason why, so when I was watching the Oscars and I heard that her song was nominated, I thought to myself – oh great – everybody’s gotta sing… I’m going to hate this.

    But then I heard the song, and was completely captivated by it. It was beautiful and haunting, and she sounded great! I think I may enjoy her music career a lot more than her acting one… :)

    I like that the music projects she works on aren’t meant to be big selling seems more like she is a music fan, and that determines what she does.

    I have to say, I LOVE an all girl band. It was one of my favorite things in the Super Bowl half time show, that B had girls kicking ass on the drums, bass, and even let her guitarist get a solo in there with fireworks.
