Depp afraid of karaoke

Johnny DeppThough he just won a Golden Globe for his performance as a singing barber in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Johnny Depp told the British paper The Sun: “I’ve always been frightened of karaoke. I’ve never tried it. It scares the hell out of me. I’ve never been that drunk. I’ve been drunk but not that drunk.” As for being part of the movie musical, Depp admitted, “I really didn’t know if I could pull it off. I went into a buddy’s studio and started to record the songs to see if I could get over the initial fear.” Meanwhile, Johnny recently donated £1million (nearly US $2 million) to the London hospital where his eight-year-old daughter Lily-Rose was treated last year for a sudden illness.

    It already IS open, dumb*ss. Look at that pic, he is so hot!

    Why is he afraid of karaoke? I’ve never been that drunk either (actually I have, but there has been no karaoke machine around at the time!), but I thought Johnny was up for anything.

    He shouldn’t be afraid because he is an amazing singer. Anyone who has seen Sweeney Todd will agree.

    I’m sorry but I don’t agree!! He is not UGLY, by any means…..but I’ve seen waaaaayyyy better!! I also do not like his type…..the type who speaks perfect. Absolute proper english, absolute proper grammar……too damn picky for me!! But you ladies go ahead…he’s all yours!

  7. Nancy • January 15, 2008 @ 7:23 PM

    Nicole Kidman is another one of his type!!

  8. theoriginalme • January 15, 2008 @ 9:36 PM

    Nancy! Where ya been? We’ve all been lookin for ya! Anyway, I never liked him before, but he’s grown on me, I now think he’s hot.

    This picture makes him look better but he should get rid of the pig bristles. A guy who can grow them in fully is one thing but his just looks scruffy. Shave it off, please.

    Welcome back Nancy, where you been?

    You’re right, by the way – there is definitely better looking out there. I agree as well about how he speaks. If you Google his background he’s from some hick place called Owensboro, Kentucky. Who from Kentucky has that perfect diction? Only an actor who’s become somewhat pretentious, that’s who. Mind you – giving a couple million to the hospital that treated your daughter puts him higher up in my eyes than most other celebrities.

    That’s true….then again it could be a pay off….hmmmm. Just kidding! Yes it was very nice of him to give all that money. As for me….I had surgery, but I’m back in action!

    Hey there Nancy,

    Welcome back! Glad to hear you are having a speedy recovery. I gave you a couple of jabs but when I got no response, I wondered if something might have happened to you.

    As for Mr. Depp, he is definitely my type of actor; just doesnt cut it in looks. The poor attempt at a moustache has got to go. Yuk

    Yes good to have you back Nancy.

  13. Nancy • January 16, 2008 @ 10:01 PM

    Wow! I feel so….loved!

    Hey Arnie! What’s happenin brother?

    Hey Gina. Sorry I missed all the fun! Now would be a great time to catch up on that, since any blood spilled will not be felt due to heavy pain medication!….Nah, they made me leave the morphine at the hospital, but they gave me lots of codeine to get me through! Nice, thanks……remember….when you want to go on vacation….France is quite nice! Aurevoir!!

  14. Nancy • January 17, 2008 @ 1:53 AM

    Going on holidays…..France is quite nice I hear! Johnny Depp lives there too! Aurevoir!

    Bon Voyage!
