There is a fine line between acting and singing. Not everyone can criss-cross platforms, but when they do, they can get very infectious – making that leap from silver screen to your iPods. Here are some of today’s actors who can actually sing:
Dakota Fanning seriously epitomizes the latest perfume launch from Marc Jacobs, he calls “Oh, Lola!” The 17 year old actress happily agreed to be the face of the advertising campaign. Self confessing how she runs to the store to buy the latest fragrances of Marc Jacobs, Dakota expressed how humbled she was with the offer to be the face everyone would relate to Oh, Lola.
Unfortunately, not everyone seems to accept that this girl has indeed grown up. The said ads for Oh Lola! is too provocative for the Advertising Standards Authority in England and has banned the Lola ads in all of Britannia. According to ASA, it is too sexually suggestive and can be taken as putting too much of the idea of sex in the face of a child.
Come on, now … I’ve held and worked mixing bowls filled with dense chocolate batter in between my legs and that would never be taken as sexually suggestive if you ever saw that picture of me! The ASA says, however much they knew that Dakota is 17 years old, the length of her dress, the position of her legs and the bottle of perfume draws in too much sexuality . They also say the actress looks much to be under the age of 16. Well , bless this girl for having that woman child look to her .. as it is, doesn’t Lola take from the name or term Lolita? And I bet my frustrated Lolita pseudo self , that if these peeps running the show at the ASA ever saw Dakota’s movie, The Runaways … they would definitely need to get their minds out of that gutter.

Don’t worry, it’s just a temporary tattoo!
The Runaways had its red carpet premiere last Tuesday at The Arclight Theaters in Hollywood, California. It was a cool moment in rock ‘n roll history when lead actresses Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart ran into real-life Runaways Joan Jett and Cherie Currie.

Dakota and Kristen play Joan and Cherie respectively in the ’70s biopic of their all-girl rock band The Runaways. Fans are looking forward to Dakota’s mature role and her onscreen kiss with rebel Kristen.
Although the PG kind is worried about the movie’s sexual, druggie, and wild partying themes, I say nay to the critics! The ’70s was an iconic time in history when rock ‘n roll was in its purest form—way before the pop kind tainted it with bubblegum and candy.
Two days to go before it’s out for public consumption!
Call me a fan. Call me overexcited. Call me a flower child wannabe; I don’t care. March 19 is too far away and I cannot wait to see The Runaways. I’ve raved about it for the past few weeks, and like most overindulgent fans, my heart rate speeds up whenever I see new tidbits, videos, and photos of the movie.
Here’s my fix of the week—the new 30-second TV spot.
There’s also the official teaser poster to smile about.
