Jenny Lewis isn't the only former actress to find musical success.
There seems to be a special musical buzz in the entertainment business at the moment reserved for screen actresses who are wanting to spread their wings in their career - and maybe earn some more money too. Whether it's Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande blowing everyone away with her stunning vocal range as she gears up to release her second album this summer, or indie favourite Jenny Lewis becoming ever more successful with her solo singing career after a good three years fronting a band, it appears that some actresses just can't resist testing their pipes in the recording studio. Even Hollywood sensation Scarlett Johansson dipped her toes in musical waters back in 2008 with her well-praised debut 'Anywhere I Lay My Head'.
While we're half expecting Keira Knightley to release a record any day now after singing on her latest drama 'Begin Again', we look at the film world's biggest female musical successes.

Although best known for her time fronting indie favourites, Rilo Kiley, music wasn't actually Lewis's first career choice, instead the Vegas native was intially known as an actress. Her early showbiz experience mainly consisted of TV roles, with small parts in the likes of 'Baywatch', 'Brooklyn Bridge' and 'The New Twilight Zone' in the 80s and early 90s as well as film stints on 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'The Wizard'. Her last major acting venture came with 1995's black and white drama 'Don's Plum' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire before she formed Rilo Kiley with then-boyfriend Blake Sennett.

If nothing else, Glee writers know how to make a spot-on parody of a commercial for yeast medication. Even non-fans should get a kick out of this one.
Rivera shines at the very beginning of the episode.
As for the rest of the episodes – the singing montages were solid, the relationships and character development – believable for once and this might just be the first time that Tina gets an actual complete and not-at-all-frustrating storyline. Finally, after years of falling behind for solos, boys and pretty much everything else, in this episode Tina was ecstatic to be nominated for prom queen. And while her Glee cast-members weren’t all that impressed by her announcement, the lovable Tina managed to successfully campaign and win – finally, after Kurt and Rachel in two consecutive years.

The X Factor judge proudly announced her upcoming appearance on the musical-comedy, only to be met with rumours that her phone has been hacked and nude photos were stolen from it
Demi Lovato will continue her good relationship with Fox this fall when she appears in the network's hit show Glee as part of a six-episode (with the potential for more) story arc. Unfortunately for the X Factor judge however, the news that she will be joining with the hit show has been overshadowed somewhat by the recent rumour that the star had her phone hacked, with the hacker finding and willing to sell nude photos of the star.

TV Line first revealed that Lovato will be appearing as Dani, a friend of Rachel and Santana who the pair know from their time in New York, on Monday (19 August).

In a 2009 interview with the New York Daily News, Lovato opened up about her decision to cut ties with father Patrick, saying, "The last time I talked to him was two years ago," she said. "You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him.

Selena and her family have been receiving congratulations via social media.
It’s been all good news for Selena Gomez recently, as the Spring Breakers star, who also recently released the highly successful Come and Get It single, has become a big sister. On Thursday, Selena’s mother, Mandy Cornett gave birth to a baby girl with husband Brian Teefey. Gomez had announced the pregnancy to her Twitter followers a month prior, saying: "Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news...My mommy's carrying my baby brother or sister :) I'm the happiest girl in the world!"
Now, 20-year-old Selena is presumably too wrapped up in doting on her baby sister to take care of her social media duties. However, New York Daily News reports that pal and X Factor judge Demi Lovato took to Twitter immediately after hearing the news to congratulate her friend. "@selenagomez IS A BIG SISTER!!!!!! Everyone congratulate her and her family!!!!!! #CONGRATSSELENA!!!!" she tweeted Thursday, adding "#CONGRATSSELENAMANDYANDBRIAN !!!!!!"
This is the star’s first sibling. Selena’s parents separated back when the future Disney girl was just five years old, but the family has obviously made it work. Now, Gomez will have to balance family responsibilities with her career, which is on a definite rise this year. She has steadily been trying to distance herself from her Disney past. After releasing Spring Breakers, in which she plays one of four girls on a vacation that gets out of control, Selena dropped the first single off her new album and an accompanying video, showing off her sexy side. Now the actress is looking forward to future career prospects and, if recent news about her are correct, she is even prepared to do nudity for a worthwhile role.

The crowd cheered for the R&B singer during her tearful delivery of the emotional song, leaving Rowland to stop and wipe away the tears.
In the new track, the former Destiny's Child singer speaks about how her abusive former boyfriend turned her against Beyonce. "Bird in a café. You'd never know what I was dealing with. Went our separate ways but I was happy she was killin' it. Bittersweet, she was up, I was down.No lie, I feel good for her but what do I do now?" she sings. In a video from the Washington gig, Rowland, 32, is seen sitting on a stool and singing before choking up and having to bow her head. Buoyed by the crowd, she continues the song before telling fans, "Doing this song for me was so therapeutic. Honesty, like my mama always says, is always the best policy."
Watch Kelly Rowland crying:
'Dirty Laundry' features on Rowland's forthcoming studio album - another song 'You've Changed' was released on Tuesday (May 28, 2013) and features both Beyonce and Michelle Williams.

Albums Of Note... Get Up! pairs modern blues idol and expert slide guitarist Ben Harper with harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite. Aiming for blues authenticity, that’s exactly what Ben and Charlie achieve here. The pair of talented blues musicians fly in the face of modernity and instead strive to recreate the dusky glamour of a Chicago blues club.
“In general, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite have delivered a strong, yet candid and fun blues album. This album really does not care that it is 2013, and why should it? Each of the ten songs contains something of merit. Both musicians involved are fairly prolific but this collection will doubtlessly shoot to the high end of the fans favourites in no time at all.”

Curves won out the day at the stad-studded VH1 Divas event that took place at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last night (December 16), with the likes of Kelly Osbourne and Jenna Dewan-Tatum - wife of actor Channing Tatum - turning the heads of the paparazzi as they headed down the red carpet. Yes, while Miley Cyrus was winning attention on the stage, with The Sun reporting that she covered Billy Idol's 'Rebel Yell', off stage her conservative look was largely overlooked.
X Factor judge and Disney darling Demi Lovato has given a candid chat to Parade Magazine into what life is like as a X Factor judge, dishing the details about some of her co-judges, as well as discussing her own battles with eating disorders and self harm and how she aspires to inspire as many people as possible.
With the season finale of the X Factor USA only days away (Dec. 20), the show's name is hot on most people's lips; enter Demi Lovato to keep us up to date with what's happening behind the scenes.
The young starlet told the magazine that her time on the show has been an emotional and stressful one, but still one that she has enjoyed nonetheless. Speaking about her co-judges, she had (almost) nothing but good things to say about them, telling the mag that she considers Britney Spears to be "sweet and humble," whilst L. A. Reid, who announced he is leaving the show at the end of the series, is "hilarious and smart." Bad news for the show's head judge and creator Simon Cowell though, as Demi was much less positive, calling him "annoying and old!" What a charmer (not that we doubt Simon wouldn't want it any other way).
The latest person to exit the ever-revolving door that leads to judging on a TV talent show is La Reid, who told bosses on the X Factor that he was done with the show, he told Access Hollywood Reporter.
The head of Epic Records has decided that his time in front of the camera is done as he is now more interested in nurturing the talents already at his disposal, as well as waning to sign a few more new artists now he has a little more spare time on his hands. In a statement given to Access Hollywood, the record executive said, “I have the utmost respect for [show creator] Simon Cowell. He is the very best, and I have had the opportunity to learn so much from working with him. Working with him on X Factor has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I’m honored to have sat on a panel with such incredible talent.”
Reid, who has sat beside Cowell since he exported the X Factor from Britain to the United States, said he will miss the show nonetheless, but he want to get back to his "core responsibility" of managing things at Epic.

Thursday's festive Thanksgiving episode of The X Factor USA made this years Thanksgiving one to remember for two people in particular, as both Beatrice Miller and Arin Ray were sent home on this weeks episode, as the top ten acts were narrowed down to eight.
It was double trouble for Britney Sears this week too, with Miller and Ray both being under her tutelage. There was little Brit could do for them either, with the judge and mentor telling Ray to think of his time on the show as “a learning experience,” when he was made the first person to get given the heave-ho from the show.
That meant that there was still a final two to face elimination, with youngster Beatrice Miller squaring up with CeCe Frye. Frye performed her own rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s 'Because of You,' and sang it to perfection, which turned the heat right up on Miller, heat you could see getting to the 13-year-old. Performing Dido's 'White Flag', she delivered an equally impressive performance but alas, it just wan't meant to be. The judges cast their vote, Britney said CeCe, the rest chose Bea. We'd be very surprised if the youngster didn't end up finding fame at some point in her life though, she's got the talent, just not the time to work on it properly yet.
VH1 Divas annual special has become a staple in the network's yearly plans since 1998, and this year sees Adam Lambert host the fabulous night, reports E!
This year the show will see performances from Demi Lovato, Ciara, Jordin Sparks, Miley Cyrus and Kelly Roland, and will include special tributes to the Whitney Houston, and Donna Summer- true divas. Lambert expressed his excitement about the post in a statement: "I'm so thrilled to be hosting VH1 Divas this year... I have a feeling it's going to be the most fabulous concert of the year! And LIVE!! Get ready for some amazing performances, killer fashion and fierce divas!" If Lambert performs then he'll certainly add to that list of amazing performances, but he's certainly got the killer fashion down to a T- especially given his recent change of hairstyle, now sporting a surprisingly flattering silver barnet.
Despite us all loving all the performers set for the show, we're not quite sure they quite stack up to the title 'Divas'. With previous performers including Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Celine Dion and the ultimate diva- Diana Ross. Anyway, we're open for them all to prove us wrong. VH1 Divas airs on December 16th.
It’s official: Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will join Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell in November as hosts of Fox’s flagship singing talent show, reports The New York Daily News.
It’s official: Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will join Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell in November as hosts of Fox’s flagship singing talent show, reports The New York Daily News.
"The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out," Simon Cowell said in a statement. "Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn't be happier." Lopez, 39, has experience hosting “Extra,” and Kardashian is used to being in front of the camera from her E! reality series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” They replace the Welsh presenter Steve Jones, who made his name in the U.K on Channel 4 hosting their youthful T4 franchise. “We have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running,” Cowell told Ellen DeGeneres last month.
Kardashian proved to be a tough cookie when it came to negotiations. Talks with the star reached a tense point when an argument over her being on two networks at once arose. However, her determined nature made the deal happen, and she can now enjoy being part of the biggest talent show on TV (once it starts beating The Voice for ratings, that is).
She admitted her feelings for the One Direction singer, as reported by Yahoo.com, when she said “He knows I have a little crush on him, and we enjoy having dinner when we get the chance. We speak and message all the time... [But] I don't want a relationship over Skype; we are both in a place where we feel zero pressure to rush.”
However, talking with Teen Vogue and alluding to her recent stint in rehab, and her continued progress Lovato said of Niall: "He's a really awesome, sweet guy but [Niall]'s not my boyfriend...I'm in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself." She furthered her comment saying “Obviously, I'm still going to like people—or love them—but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be OK with being alone, first.” In 2010 the new X-Factor judge had to cancel her involvement with the Jonas Brothers tour and checked into rehab to tackle her depression and eating disorder.

Katie Couric’s bulimia battle became the subject of yesterday’s episode of her new syndicated chat show (September 24, 2012). Couric explained, in an interview with Associated Press, that she felt it was important for her to be as honest with her audience as she asks her guests to be. “I kind of hesitated to even bring it up,” she said of the eating disorder. “But I felt that if I expect people on my show to be honest, then, when relevant, I owe it to people watching to be honest myself… I wanted to focus on my guests, while acknowledging one of the reasons this issue is so important to me: I went through it."
Couric explained that she first started struggling with the illness when she was rejected by her first choice of college. “Like a lot of young women, I was struggling with my body image," she said, "and feeling like I wasn't good enough or attractive enough or thin enough.” Couric managed to control the problem with the help of a therapist and explains “I've learned how to have a much healthier relationship with food, and how to enjoy my life without obsessing about food.”
Couric was joined by Demi Lovato for the show, as she placed the focus on the show’s guests, rather than on herself. The young X Factor judge is known to have suffered with bulimia herself, so agreed to appear on Couric’s chat show to discuss her experiences with her own body image issues.
Popstar and 'Camp Rock' actress Demi Lovato is greeted with excited screams from her fans as she surprises a bunch of students at the Young Women's Leadership School in East Harlem, New York who are having an 'anti-bullying' assembly campaigning for a 'Drama Free School Year' as part of the Secret's Mean Stinks campaign which Lovato is an ambassador of.
The Demi Lovato X factor was there for all to see as the feisty young star came out the better of a verbal ding dong with her boss Simon Cowell on Conan O'Brien's chat show. The Sun reports that the duo were there to promote the new series of X Factor, which has just kicked off out in the States, and Lovato brought exactly the same outspoken energy that she's been displaying so far on the program to the chat show couch.
Joking to O'Brien, Lovato quipped "We're trying to reach a younger demographic, and I don't feel we're going to accomplish that when he's showing more cleavage than Britney [Spears] and I are." Cowell, who has recently seen revelations come out in public that suggested he'd told UK X Factor bosses to re-hire Dannii Minogue "for her t*ts", suggested that Lovato and third judge Britney Spears could show more cleavage. However, he was fought down by the 20 year-old who also joked that normally Simon "could braid his chest hair".
Lovato also called Cowell an "a**hole" during the broadcast and, feeling picked on, the beleaguered music mogul turned to O'Brien and pleaded: "Tell her to stop picking on me, please." There was no one on his side in front of the cameras though, with the talk show host replying sarcastically: "Don't pick on him! He's a kind man who's NEVER insulted anyone!" Poor Simon.
