Not Him Too!!!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJoaquin Phoenix

joaquin__opt1.jpg

Oscar nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix is coming out with an album.

Yes…it's another actor morphing into a 'musician'.

Why??????

It didn't work for Scarlett Johansson. It didn't work for Minnie Driver or Kevin Bacon or Billy Bob Thornton or Gina Gershon or….the list goes on and on.

Why must you do this to us Joaquin?????

Apparently, Phoenix got the calling after he learned to play the guitar for the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.

Does that mean we can expect to see something from Reese Witherspoon soon?

Phoenix has been working with Britpop star Tim Burgess , the Charlatans frontman.

A release date has not been determined.

For Phoenix's sake, let's hope the album is as good as his acting. But it will probably suck!

    You dumbfuck Perez. You realize, that you, of zero music sense, are one of the only ones putting Scarlett's album down? While many are reluctant to like it, they are. You don't "make" the news here, right? You can be a fuckwad all you want — you are clearly BRILLIANT at that, but you can't try to make things bombs that aren't, right? Oh wait, that's EXACTLY what you do….how creative! That way, you can support who ever is sucking your one inch dick and insult people who don't play. I come here for research and leave depressed.

    115

    his portrayal as johnny cash was amazing. he should have won the oscar. his voice was superb & i listen to the soundtrack all the time. usually i can't bear to listen to cover versions of great classics or even those that revive a role in a musical as i always make a comparison to the original version but joaquin is the exception. perez just throw in the towel relative to your commentary on music & fashion. you don't & will never get it.

    It worked for Kylie Minogue, didn't it? She was a TV actress before the singing career, Perez.

    Is that a cigarette in his hand? A singer who smokes, does not think much of his "instrument".

    119

    It's not pathetic…you guys don't know shit about Joaquin ”Leaf” Phoenix. His Brother, the late River Phoenix and the family have always been musicians…they used to live in poverty and play guitar and sing for money. River was also in a band called ”Aleka's Attic” along with his sister Rain Phoenix(”O”, Hitch) so it's no surprise Joaquin wants to record songs…doesn't mean he's trying to go mainstream and sell 3 million copies…it's not even about that. I think his music will send a different message and may not be for everyone. Look at Jamie Foxx…actor turn musician.

    120

    ok people hes been singing longer then acting
    did you hear him in the cash film,
    AMAZING
    look up your stuff before you post it Perez.

    122

    Well i love the film walk the line and the soundtrack is great Joaquim can sing just depends what kinda music he makes. Probably the best Biopic music film ive ever seen plus of course johhny cash is just cool

    123

    yeah this is almost as absurb as a celeb gossip blogger coming out with thier own clothing line..

    oops….burn…

  24. -Anon- says – reply to this


    124

    Are you daft? He sang everything in that movie. He clearly can sing. Why put a person down before you even know what they're capable of? I'm sure people said what's that fat fuck going to do with himself sitting in a Coffee Bean on Sunset all day playing on his computer? Low and behold the Queen of All Unnecessary Media was born. I'm sure people doubted you Perez. Why not stop acting like a chick from that horrid show The Bad Girls club on Oxygen where they just spit filth and dog each other then demand respect.

  25. BRENT says – reply to this


    125

    oh shut up. Joaquin can sing, and if you'd seen walk the line, you'd know that. I havent even heard it and I am sure it is better than any of the tripe Madonna has shit out in the past ten years.

  26. Victor says – reply to this

    I saw the headline and thought rehab. Anyway, I can see him doing a decent CD. He really was amazing singing in WTLN. He can't be any worse than ScarJo.

  34. Jessica says – reply to this


    134

    Um, it did too work for Gina Gershon. Her album is great. Scarlett, on the other hand, should be shot for even thinking she could do Waits justice.

  35. becky says – reply to this


    135

    Gee, Perez. You criticize everything! Watch YOU come up with an album in a couple of months! You know you want to!

  36. Megs says – reply to this


    136

    Um, actually Kevin Bacon plays a lot with his band still and they are pretty good. Just because they aren't top of the charts doesn't mean they weren't successful. He wasn't really doing it for that.

    Quit being such a bitch for 5 seconds. Not everyone is a fame whore like you.

    Headline "Not Him Too!":
    Though Perez was outing Joaquin as a Scientologist recruit.

  38. Michelle Renee C says – reply to this


    138

    Perez, I LOVE this site, but, everything dies. The way you are harsh with alot of people, and actually, pretty petty at times, your 15 minutes of fame are almost up. You are actually looking pretty orange yourself in some published photographs. I hate to be mean to a felllow Homo, your blog has been slacking lately..We read about this shit long before you even post it..Pay more attention to your blogs instead of trying to create posts. We are more inerested in what is going on than what you are doing…I may be wrong on this, and will probably get a bunch of hate, but, it is my opinion and I am entiltled to it, just as you and everyone else is. Leaf cam sing like a mother fucker..Are you jealous?

    River had a band on the side too, this family is pretty talented in general so don't write him off just yet.

    You are wrong about Scarlett's album, it is different and fantastic. It is not the pop drivel you keep recommending. She took a chance and I for one think it is fantastic.

    He's already a fantastic musician!! Come on! He sang all the stuff in 'Walk The Line' and has CRED!

  44. MEggles says – reply to this


    144

    I really don't think he would put anything out that wouldn't sound great. He is a great actor and artist and puts thought into what he does. :)

  45. luis says – reply to this


    145

    …yo perez, get your facts straight…he didn't just learn to play guitar, the SANG on the soundtrack, and it was pretty damn good, even held up against cash's original stuff…

    …so if you're used to actors sounding like shit when they try to sing (which is the norm) do some research before your statements…its kinda unprofessional to just dismiss because your favourite lindsay cant sing worth shite…music, like acting, is art and it is to be appreciated and judged by the audience (including you)…if you're gonna be serious about being a critic of artists BE responsible and adult about it too…

    …i luv your site by the way, kind regards…

    It seems to be a trend for all celebrities these days.. But at least most actors can sing, it much worse here in Norway, here it's all those lame glamour "models" that think that they're fantastic pop artist, and almost none of them can't sing, isn't that great? :P

    JUST BECAUSE YOUR TALENT CONSISTS OF BITCHING AND BENDING OVER YOU SHOULDN'T ASSUME THAT OTHERS ARE THE SAME.

    Oh Perez, you're so pathetic and jealous, as usual.
    Joaquin is a brilliant singer, he can be an actor, a singer, a musician, a director, and you're just a famous (ahaha, well… famous) chatty.
    So stop it, you're boring.. always the same crap, always always and always!

    WTF Perez?? DId you not see "Walk the Line"?? Joaquin did all his own singing in that and he was awesome! I think in general show boz and history are just not kind to actors who sing - can't really explain it.

    I thought he did an exceptional job singing in the Johnny Cash movie. I really think he's talented, and I have a lot of respect for him that he doesn't have the ego of other actors and doesn't seem nearly as superficial.

    187

    ACTUALLY PEREZ!!!!!!!! FYI, Joaquin sang all the songs in 'Walk the Line', which is yet another reason why people didn't understand his snub over Philip Seymour Hoffman for playing Truman Copote. I actually like Joaquin's voice better than-dare I say it?!!!-Johnny Cash's; not that JC was known for having the best quality of a singing voice! It was his style, swagger, persona, and uniqueness (of voice and altogether sound) that caught on back then. So you need to do a little more research on this one–not everyone who acts, necessarily cannot sing and vice versa. Quit being so effing critical, esp when you're not even doing responsible journalistic work!

  88. Cari says – reply to this


    188

    I think you just might be surprised, Perez. Joaquin ain't just acting when he's singing…he can f'n sing. I LOVE Joaquin…he's one of the best actors out there. And I'd definately listen to his music. Still pains me to think about River…so sad.

    This shit happens, because there is not one person close to them who would just say that "You know what, NO, you shouldn't do this, you are not a rock star, I don't care you played one in a movie once and all the critics said that you were really good, that was a MOVIE, it wasn't real, so no, totally not a good idea. Yeah, whatever, screw you too."

  91. Samantha says – reply to this

    Awwe! I love him! I'm sure if he is smart and does more Johnny Cash styles it'll be great. If there is one actor who I think would do well in that business it's probably him.

    He comes from a family of musicians. His brother and sister used to have a band called Alexa's Attic. And Leaf (Joaqui) would join them every once in a while. He was young but he had talent.

    198

    I've read people saying he was in a band with River- this is not true. Although all the Phoenix siblings were brought up singing and dancing for their supper on the streets of south america and then LA, Joaquin was never in a band. River and Rain had their band. However, Joaquin has always been around music (River had a recording studio in their house) so it doesnt surprise me that he's taken to guitar and songwirting. Also wouldnt surprise me if he turns out to be good at it- River was a kick ass guitarist and songwriter and was respected for it within the music scene (Micheal Stipe of REM now owns River's material). *His* album hasnt seen the light of day yet though, think id rather hear River's than Joaquins…
