Kat Von D Joins Lindsay Lohan And Paris Hilton As Latest Non-Singer To Ink Record Deal

For a while there, everyone who was good at one thing thought they could act (remember all those Shaq movies?), then later, everyone who thought they were good at something else decided, hell, I can sing too.

But for every Gwyneth Paltrow and Zooey Deschanel, who can (mostly) carry a tune, there are a dozen Ethan Hawkes, Russell Crowes, Scarlett Johanssons and Steven Seagals who should have stuck to what they were best at.

Now, people who are not even necessarily good at … well, anything, are trying their hand at singing, because, why not, Paris, Leighton, Kim Kardashian, Brooke Hogan and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak did it, right?

According to E! News, tattoo artist and reality star Kat Von D, whose current title is the dubious “Jesse James’ (double) ex-fiancée,” is working on her first album.

“I’ve been passionate about music all my life,” Von D told E! “I’ve been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message.” According to Von D, she thinks music is kind of like tattooing or doing her TV show, “or makeup, my clothing line, fashion … All those things, they’re just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think it’s going to be one of those things.”

She described her sound as “more on the dark, more tragically romantic [side],” with Depeche Mode and the Cure cited as her favorite artists.
