Celebrity Songsters: Milla Jovovich

Whilst trekking through the wilds of the Interwebs over the weekend, i happened to stumble upon a nugget from Puscifer that led me to wasting, er, writing an entire post on the musical wonders of Milla Jovovich. Say what, you're probably asking yourself. Well, let me tell you how it is.

Most folks, i'm guessing, know Ms. Jovo for her brilliant acting skills or her turns as international hottie model, but you cats are missing at least part of the full picture. The talented star of such movie powerhouses as The Fifth Element and the Resident Evil franchise, she also had a bit part as a stoned, guitar strumming high school student in Dazed and Confused. As chance would have it, said role was no stretch at all (well, the musician part; beats me about the stoner aspect, but a guy can dream).

Way back in 1994, she dropped The Divine Comedy, which didn't make huge waves in the States beyond its appearance on Beavis & Butthead. The fact that two cartoon maroons could dictate whether an artist took off or not is fodder for another conversation. Since then, she's shown up on a few soundtracks and posted some mp3s on her own site, but here's the one that blew me away and led to today's post--she's been kicking it with Maynard James Keenan, the dude from Tool and A Perfect Circle, in his other side project band, Puscifer. I stumbled upon a track from those two, here we are, and thus it all leads back to footwear.

mp3: Gentleman Who Fell (Milla Jovovich from The Divine Comedy)
mp3: Holy Fall (Milla Jovovich from her website)

No, in fact it is NOT a stretch for her to have played a stoner, either. She was once on the cover of HIGH TIMES & was a notorious pothead. Dunno if that's still the case, especially as she has a kid now, but she wouldn't be the first marijuana mommy.

Far be it from me to cast aspersions, but i kind of figured that was the case.

Incidentally, i now shall attempt to work "marijuana mommy" into at least one conversation a day for the foreseeable future.
