FoxNews.com reported on Monday that Scarlett has signed a deal to make her first record. “Scarlett Sings Tom Waits”, an album of songs by Tom Waits, is being recorded now and through the winter, with a possible release next spring from Rhino Records’ recently reactivated Atco label. The eventual release date will be coordinated with Scarlett’s movie schedule.

Although it does not come as news to fans of Scarlett Johansson, Esquire has now officially crowded our special lady as the Sexiest Woman Alive! According to Washington Post, Scarlett poses on the cover and inside pages of the magazine’s November issue, on newsstands 18th October.
On the cover, she wears a bra and a white Calvin Klein mini-dress; In a series of photos inside (showing her as an “enigmatic trailer-park temptress,” the magazine says), she wears cleavage-baring black lingerie paired with an open white robe, among other get-ups.
In the article Scarlett says she would rather be admired for attributes other than sex appeal. “What about my brain? What about my heart? What about my kidneys and my gallbladder?” she asks, addressing all the hoopla about her curves.
She is no stranger to the paparazzi’s cameras, and once flashed a sign proclaiming, “the person taking this picture is harrassing me.” “Apparently I spelled ‘harass’ wrong,” she recalls. “It was horrible. I couldn’t remember whether it was one `r’ or two, and I asked like four people, and they said two.”
Apparently Scarlett is on the cover of the October 2006 #77 issue of Flaunt magazine with a brand new photoshoot. I would be very grateful if someone could please scan the article for us since we don’t get this magazine in my end.
