Remember when Scarlett Johansson recorded a song for the Serge Gainsbourg tribute album?

Most of you didn't like her singing, but we're pretty sure you're gonna like this one.

It's Johnny Depp! And his longtime girlfriend/baby-momma Vanessa Paradis.

The duo went to the recording studio to sing Ballade de Melody Nelson in Serge's honor.

Mmm, sultry goodness! We're swirling around in a giant champagne glass right now.

Johnny and Vanessa join Scarlett, Rufus Wainwright, and Iggy Pop on the album.

U gotta give it a listen. Play it!!

This is clever, inspirational, and HIGHlarious all at once!

This weekend, at the Occupy Wall Street Protests in New York, Rufus Wainwright and Sean Lennon teamed up to perform a live rendition of the Madonna classic Material Girl in support of the movement!

Check it out (above)!

We're actually a little touched to see them both taking part in this, especially because of their fathers and what their music meant and inspired to the youth of the nation back in the '60s and '70s!

Very, very cool!

The times are changing, people!

Hot damn!

CLICK HERE to see an uncensored shot of Jake Shears in the shower, taken by photographer Tim Hailand for his new book, One Day In The Life of Jake Shears!

Hailand, who also created similar books for Rufus Wainwright and Daniel Radcliffe, is sending a portion of the proceeds to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, explains:

“The subjects that I choose to photograph are people that I genuinely admire. In this One Day in The Life of… work, I'm striving to create images that are at once both raw and intimate, yet treat the subject with respect and integrity. It is my goal to reveal a beautiful or vulnerable side to the subject that has not been revealed before. We live in a media-saturated world, where respect and integrity seem to be undervalued qualities in relation to celebrities, yet our society seems to have a limitless appetite for ‘reality programming.’ I think we can have both closeness and quality, ‘realness’ and beauty.”

Such a lovely message! But we have to admit, we're a bit more preoccupied with the realness and beauty of that man's ass!

Yes and YES! Yum!

Enjoy!

Such wonderful, happy news!

Although there have been rumors, Rufus Wainwright confirmed today via his official website that he and his fiance, Jorn Weisbrodt, have become parents to a baby girl!

According to the press release:

Darling daughter Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen was born on February 2, 2011 in Los Angeles, California to proud parents Lorca Cohen, Rufus Wainwright and Deputy Dad Jorn Weisbrodt. The little angel is evidently healthy, presumably happy and certainly very very beautiful.

Daddy #1 would like to offer everyone a digital cigar and welcome the little lady in with a French phrase from his favorite folk song, A La Claire Fontaine : "Il y a longtemps que je t'aime, jamais je ne t'oublierai."

Amazing!

We couldn't be more thrilled for you all!

Congratulations!
