Scarlett Sings The Blues

Unlike some other, ahem, popular Jewish bloggers, it is far from my prerogative to publicly gawk at and/or drool over Jewish celebrity hotties, thus participating in the fetishization and objectification of the Jewish woman. Hence, when Jewish celebrity hottie Scarlett Johansson was named Sexiest Woman Alive (NSFF*) by FHM magazine, I didn’t consider it blogworthy.
However, now that it’s been disclosed that Ms. Johansson and I share an appreciation for moody, scratchy-throated baritones, I simply couldn’t help myself. According to Fox News’ Roger Friedman:

Scarlett, I am told, has signed a deal to make her first record. “Scarlett Sings Tom Waits” is being recorded now and through the winter, with a possible release next spring from Rhino Records’ recently reactivated Atco label. The eventual release date will be coordinated with Johansson’s movie schedule.

Certainly, I have no idea what to expect, but I genuinely look forward to hearing Ms. Johansson’s debut effort. Though I somehow get the feeling she won’t be touching “I’m Your Late Night Evening Prostitute” with a 10-foot pole. But hey, you never know.

  1. Not safe for feminists! There is a whole school of feminism that claims that pornography/prostitution is one of the highest forms of female emancipation, that a woman is free to experience and share her sexuality in any way that she so chooses.
    Also, some feminists like scantily-clad hot women.

  2. Wow, I had no idea she was Jewish and I have been borderline obsessed with her since ‘Ghost world’. I love when I find out famous people I like are Jewish. Hooray Jews!
