scarlett johansson girl band oscar nomination

But she's doing so well as the main pussy in Broadway's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!

Not to worry though, because despite LOVING to sing, Scarlett Johansson is not trading film for a phat bass…

But she HAS joined an all-girl band!!

The group is obviously not called Spice Girls 2.0, but rather The One and Only Singles, and during a recent interview Scarlett compared her new musical effort to iconic girly group the Go-Gos! WOOOO!

While discussing her melodious venture, the not-engaged actress also revealed how "surprised" she was that Before My Time — the original song she sang for documentary Chasing Ice — had been nominated for an Oscar right next to the unparallelled Adele!

The Go-Go's Cancel Their Farewell Tour

Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

wenn734606jb.jpg

So sad. We were looking forward to this, too!

The Go-Go's have cancelled their summer tour after Jane Wiedlin tore her ACL!

They released this note:

It is with great regret that the Go-Go’s announce today the cancellation of Happily Ever After, their summer farewell tour. The tour was scheduled to kick off July 7 at Lilith Fair San Diego, and conclude in Austin, TX on July 27. The band will also be unable to perform live on Good Morning America, scheduled for July 16 in New York’s Central Park.

The news comes as a result of guitarist Jane Wiedlin injuring herself after a 20-foot fall while hiking near her home in Northern California a couple of weeks ago. Jane is scheduled for ACL replacement surgery for her knee in the coming weeks, with a prognosis of up to a year recovery time.

The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane’s speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.

Poor thing! Such an unfortunate set of circumstances!

We sincerely hope Jane recovers - keep your chin up, bb! We wish you only the best!

Lilith Fair Pulls Out Of Arizona Tour Date!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitik

So many musicians are speaking out!!

Despite their underwhelming ticket sales, the revived Lilith Fair this summer has cancelled their July 8th performance in Arizona - and many are speculating that it's due to artists protesting the HOrrific new immigration laws!

A few weeks ago, Go-Go's singer Belinda Carlisle wrote this message on her facebook:

"the gogo's are encouraging lilith to move this date to another state in protest of the new immigration law. we are NOT supporting the state government. i don't like mixing business and politics but i'm afraid i have to this time."

Last week, this press release was issued:

"The Lilith Fair date scheduled for July 8 in Phoenix has been cancelled and refunds can be made at point of purchase. At this time, The Go-Go’s have not been informed as to why the show was canceled. We regret the loss of the date on our farewell tour as we know we have many devoted fans in Arizona."

It's so unfortunate that Arizona fans have to suffer the consequences of their government's actions, but we applaud these performers for standing up for what they believe in!

What do U think?? Is Lilith Fair doing the right thing?? Or could there be another reason they pulled out of their Arizona show??

Belinda Carlisle Releasing A Memoir

Filed under: Music Minute

Inneresting!

Lead singer of the Go-Go's and an '80s icon in her own right, Belinda Carlisle is releasing her memoir Lips Unsealed, on sale June 1st.

The book is full of juicy deets:

"Lips Unsealed is filled with the wild stories that Belinda Carlisle fans are dying to hear—stories about the band's crazy days on tour with acts like the Police and Madness and the fabulous parties and people to whom the Go-Go's had exclusive access.

But more than that, this candid memoir reveals the underbelly of the glamour, as Belinda shares in vivid detail her private struggles with abusive relationships, weight, self-esteem, and a thirty-year battle with drug and alcohol addiction."

Sounds like an intense read!

Will U be picking it up?
