Sooooo! Check this out! supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw is in a band called Our Mountain, and her lastest single is available to listen to on Soundcloud. Aah, lovely. People often sneer at or deride models when they try their hand at acting, singing or writing a cookbook, for reasons of inauthenticity, or not having enough talent to simply go for that area in the first place, but recently there have been a spate of break-out examples. We're sure that Abbey falls much more into the credible bracket. She plays tambourine, keys and vocals in the song! In her own words, 'As a model I feel like the canvas, as a musician I feel like the paint.' Just have a listen to her . . .
You like? Why not remind yourself what Karen Elson sounds like chante-ing her White-Stripes-husband-produced hit, The Truth is in the Dirt, also good, non?
OR this brilliant, little-known footage from ages ago of Kate Moss singing the chorus to Bobby Gillespies' verse in this rather brilliant Primal Scream performance of Some Velvet Morning. . . .
Or this, amazingly Nineties-tastic (and not nearly as bad as you're expecting it to be) clip of Naomi Campbell (yes you read that correctly) singing her number 40 hit on Top of the Tops, Love and Tears. Oh yes, kids. Stick with Grazia Daily and you can learn something new every single day.
