Scarlett & Pete Yorn were featured on the September issue of BlackBook magazine, where they gave an interview about their Break Up album. Read it after the cut and view the new magazine pic on the gallery by clicking on it!
Even when critics weren’t so kind to your first album?
SJ: I’ve had plenty of films that were released with mixed reviews. You win some, you lose some, I suppose. My only hope is that the album was actually listened to before it was reviewed.

Scarlett is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Time Out New York. I don’t have access to this where I live so if there is anyone willing to donate scans, we’d greatly appreciate it. A preview of the cover and interview are below.
Scarlett, a lot of movie actors who try theater get destroyed by critics. Are you concerned about being raked over the coals?
Johansson: The only thing that worries me about that is that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to work again. I’ve been praised, criticized and dragged through the dirt for 17 years. It would be heartbreaking, but what else can I do? Not go there?
Schreiber: That is really the heart of it. Once you get past all the hurt feelings and the ego, the truth is you just want to keep working.
Johansson: What else do we have? What, would we open a bakery? [Laughs]
Schreiber: It’s like the silly actor games: If you’re not prepared to make a complete jackass of yourself, in front of not only the audience but also the actors, then you’re not worth the money they paid to get into the theater.
Scarlett covers the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine (UK). She poses with (RED) clothes in the pictures, and in the article she’s interviewed by Bono (U2) talking about her trip to Rwanda last year to help to fight AIDS in Africa. It’s a great photoshoot, and it’s always nice to see her collaborating with any charity cause. I added HQ scans of the magazine to the gallery, and also the photoshoot.
