Kate Bosworth Launches Singing Career Via Fabric Commercial

 

Why is it that so many actors and actresses think they can sing, yet so few are actually good at it? Is there some sort of hubris-causing bacteria in all the Schweppes soda that they are constantly drinking in a suggestive fashion on their divans? The latest in this long line of dabblers is Blue Crush star Kate Bosworth, who decided a commercial sponsored by America’s cotton producers would be the ideal place to test out her newfound interest in song.

I wish I could say she was a surprising breakout success, but her breathy delivery is a tad too reminiscent of that “sexy baby” voice some actresses have to not give me the creeps. It’s a shame, because if they’d let an actual singer sing the song, it would’ve been quite a fine commercial for natural fibers; Kate looks lovely in all one million of her bohemian cotton outfits, and the song is a nice little tune, as songs in ads go. Just goes to show not everyone can be Zooey Deschanel, who, it bears mentioning, appeared in a superior cotton commercial a while back. Upon first seeing it, the anger I felt when I realized I was bopping along to an ad jingle and not a new She and Him song was mitigated by Zooey’s quirky adorableness. I would not mind being the fabric of that girl’s life, let me tell you. By which, of course, I mean her closest friend , confidante, and partner in pretend record-browsing. Call me any time, Z.
