This week’s issue of NME – on UK newsstands nationwide from tomorrow (May 21) – has an exclusive cover story and photoshoot with Scarlett Johansson. Stay tuned for scans!

Actress Scarlett Johansson, who released an album of Tom Waits covered named “Anywhere I Lay My Head” yesterday (May 19), has hinted that she may play festival dates this summer.

The star said that the only thing stopping her was stagefright.

“It would be sad to not get everybody [band members] together,” she told The London Paper. “Whether it’s at a festival or somewhere that’s kind of fun.

“[But] I have horrible stage fright, so it would have to be overcome. People approach me [about playing live] and my usual answer is, ‘Ah, I’ll think about that’.

“When I do think about it, I start to get really sweaty and uncomfortable and itchy around the neck.”

I totally forgot to post about this before but Scarlett made #2 on Maxim‘s 2008 Hot 100 list. Model Marisa Miller made #1 this year. The ‘sexy’ thing is getting kind of old but here’s what they had to say about our girl anyways:

Perched high atop the A-list, this dangerously curvy bombshell (and possessor of Hollywood’s most luscious lips) has the acting chops to back up her mind-melting hotness. We’ve watched her in indie films (Lost in Translation, Match Point). We’ve watched her in chick flicks (The Nanny Diaries, The Other Boleyn Girl). Truth is, we’d rapturously watch her sort her recycling. But first we’ll be in line for her most guy-friendly project yet, the noirish, Frank Miller–directed The Spirit.

Scarlett was on the cover of today’s The Times Culture supplement. I’ve scanned it and added the lengthy article here in the press archive. The gallery has been updated a lot this weekend with scans, album shoot pics and cover scans, AOL sessions caps and stills and more! Click here to view all – it is too many things to list here. Big thanks to Gary, Roberto, Luca, rope, Mina and everyone else who contributed to this post.

As I mentioned before, I am in between my exams and I will be moving in two weeks time so this will likely be the last big update for the month. I will try my best to keep you updated with news and anything else major but obviously, my studies and move take first priority. I will add all pending videos, photos and articles once everything’s settled again.

Last but certainly not least, Scarlett’s “Anywhere I Lay My Head” is released tomorrow in the UK and on Tuesday in the US. I have listed the album through several times now and while I wasn’t crazy about the first single, I happy to say that I already love the album. Yes, people, it is really good. My faves tracks include Green Grass, No One Knows I’m Gone, Song For Jo and I Wish I Was in New Orleans. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

See Scarlett perform songs from her album live over at AOL! Caps will be up this weekend. Be sure to view the videos, they’re really good.

By the way, according to reports Scarlett will not be present at Cannes for the presentation of Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Only Penelope Cruz and director Woody Allen will promote it there. I do not know the reason for this but we should have more details tomorrow after the press conference.

I have been adding numerous new photos of Scarlett at the Costume Institute Gala. There’s a total of 154 shots in the gallery at the moment. I also uploaded two new album promo photoshoot pics. This shoot is definitely one of my favorites out of all. Maybe there will even be a layout from these one day… We’ll see. ;)

Scarlett Johansson describes the recording of her Tom Waits covers album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” as an “intimate experience — almost private, in a way.”

Of course, when you’re a Hollywood actress, Louis Vuitton model and occasional tabloid fixture, pretty much nothing is private.

That’s the challenge facing Atco/Rhino Records as it promotes the album, due May 20. Johansson is a familiar face — and name recognition is a definite marketing bonus — but the phrase “actress-turned-singer” is bound to set off warning bells.

“I don’t think being a celebrity is a hindrance — I think it will get people curious,” project manager Liuba Shapiro said. “It’s not like a Paris (Hilton) brand. Scarlett has credible performances (as an actress).”

It seems that Scarlett’s album and the music video have stirred up some controversy online and in the media: people seem to either love or hate it! NME gave the album 8 out of 10 – pretty good! You can read the full review here and check out an excerpt below. Remember that you can always come and voice your opinion on Scarlett’s work on the forum – as long as it is voiced in a respectful manner. We’d love to hear from you!

This is a brilliant album that will no doubt top some ‘best of 2008’ lists, but it’s hard to work out if it’s a one-off or not. Perhaps the answer lies in the one original track, ‘Song For Jo’, which stands out as a result of its sparseness. A lone acoustic guitar strums, as an ambient orchestra plays in the background. It recalls Karen O’s Squeak E Clean collaboration ‘Hello Tomorrow’ and suggests that if Johansson and Sitek collaborated on a second album, similar ghostly magic could happen again. Let’s hope they do.
