Scarlett Johansson

There’s really no way to defend this one. Scarlett Johansson has released her video for “Falling Down” the first single off her first album, Anywhere I Lay My Head. It’s just as bad as you might expect from an actress who decides that because she can do one thing well she must be able to do everything well.

My advice to you is to hit mute then play and you’ll have a very nice experience. If someone makes it all the way through let me know how it ends. I only got to 1min 12secs before the tears set in. It’s like she was actually hitting me with her voice.

    Scarjo has many other gifts… and she should never set foot in a recording studio again. Producers? There’s nothing you can do to fix this! Please encourage her to be on her way, and save whatever integrity you may still have.

    It’s kinda surprising to me that this happened. She’s a wonderful actress, but singing is definitely not her thing.

    Too many of these crossover types, though it seems like it has been going in the opposite direction (music to acting) in recent years.

    Ooh. Ouch! Who thought this was a good idea? Oh lordy, I’m speechless.

    I love Scarlett as an actress, but she should stick to her core talents. Singing is not one of them.

    Warner Bros. Records should be ashamed of themselves - this release further proves that labels don’t care about true talent anymore - it’s more about how the artist “looks” so they can package it up with a video and other vapid image-based marketing tactics. This is from the same label that brought us the song stylings of Paris Hilton, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

    Wow. I didn’t know that this was the same label as Hilton’s “music”. I think you’re right that it’s all about marketing, not talent these days. Pretty sad state of things there.

    For a minute there I really thought she her voice was going to be tremendously beautiful … but it wasn’t. Good job pointing this out Matt.
