Scarlett's "Falling Down" Video — Love it or Leave it?

Scarlett's "Falling Down" Video — Love it or Leave it?

You all weren't loving the first taste of Scarlett Johansson's upcoming album of Tom Waits covers, Anywhere I Lay My Head, but maybe this new video for "Falling Down" will change your mind. It gives us a behind the scenes look at life as Scarlett — getting all made up for photoshoots and events, flying all over, looking gorgeous. Plus, there's a little Lost in Translation feel to it and even a cameo by Salman Rushdie. So watch it below and let us know — love it or leave it?

Please calm down. What is the point to sit around and critise this girl for attempting something different. She's famous for a reason, she has talent, whether that be musically, we are not sure yet. This is the only music video out yet. All i'm saying is, let her be, she's not being slutty or selling out to the masses. I find it funny that you all have respond so many times to my comments - which in fact were not even directed at any of you who commented after me. And to be honest, no one knows you, why should we take your 'expert' advise and opinion on this song seriously anyways. It's simply so easy for people sitting at their computers at home to judge everything about everyone - any song that popsugar puts up gets bad reviews. GIVE THEM A BREAK - if you don't like it don't be bothered with it - obviously you care because you take the time to comment on it. If your so beyond it, then just do your thing and leave it to the 'less musically advanced' listeners to appreciate and enjoy.

WTF was that? She sounds like Enya on crack! Besides, the video sucks. I thought the video would make up for the terrible song, but it has made it worse. You can barely hear her voice.

monotonous no tune whatsoever, why will we need singers when actresses are doing it, and why will we need models when celebrities are always magazine ads. goodness just stick with what you do I think you're making enough $$$$ at it.

This is just bad. And I'm a fan of Rushdie's novels...so I don't understand why he would feel the need to be involved in this. Why do actresses try to sing and singers try to act? A select few are versatile but sadly Scarlett is not, in my opinion.

This song... done by Tom Waits. Beautiful. Done by ScarJo. Not so much. The video almost seems like some sort of commentary about how uninteresting/tedious she thinks her profession is. To which I say, if you hate your job that much or think it's that banal, there are hundreds of thousands of actresses (who are actually probably better at acting than S.J.) who'd trade places with you in a heartbeat. As for the actual video itself - setting aside who is singing and who is starring - I liked the cinematography and the direction. Conclusion: Don't quit your day job.

I could have swallowed a mic and puked a better song. That was just horrible. Probably not Tom's favorite cover. Will be interesting to see if this horror charts much in sales.

Bad song, bad voice. And I was suprised by how bad her skin is. You always hear that she has perfect flawless skin. She is very pretty but without lots of cover up and concealer, her skin is awful

The video has a cool concept, and it's always nice to see behind the scenes prep, but Scarlett's voice leaves a lot to be desired. Interesting career move, Scarlett.

She sounds tone deaf and just horrible It's over produced with muddy effects and sounds like bad bad karaoke. David Bowie, sweetheart why were you involved in such a terrible project? This was a Vanity project for a narcissistic bimbo that she is So sick of hearing her talk about her figure and her sex life WHO cares already. There are much more beautiful and talented women on this planet than you...Pfft

I actually liked the video more than the music. I thought the behind the scenes look was interesting and she is so beautiful! I have to admit though that she isn't a very good singer. I love her acting skills however, so if she sticks with that she will be fine :)

Definately a vanity project. I find it hard not to like Scarlett but this is just not good. I want to give her the benefit of the doubt and say perhaps this song doesn't showcase her talent but this is just not good. I usually like edgy, risk taking female artist like say fiona, pj, bjork and tori, but this just didn't have anything to admire about it. Better off listening to the original. Kudos to Scarlett if this fulfills a dream of hers or whatever but definately not for me.

This was AWFUL! Self-indulgent describes it well, as Michaela said, "throwing Salman Rushdie in the video is just Scarlett wanting yet again to seem intellectual & soulful." How ridiculous! She sounds flat and just, awful. Just because she isn't over-manufactured sounding does not make her good, there are plenty of artists with an organic sound who can sing better than this and don't make a video of themselves pouting their lips and staring intently into the distance. Usually I am the first to say ridiculously kind things about every celeb, but this is just rubbish.

This is by no means Montag bad, but the song is not good either.

im sorry.. i liked scarlett a lot before all of this. I thought she was a true artist, but now she is just like all the others. She just wants more money and more fame. Actress CHECK Clothing line CHECK Singer CHECK.. what next? I mean come on already! We get it, you guys are famous and want more. But please don't pull of the "indie hip im so cool and not like the other" when you really are. I'm very disappointed in her. Her voice was horrible.. leave the singing to people who really have talent and the emotion to sing a beautiful Tom Wait song. ps- now having seen her so much, I dont think she is as hot. She's hot when she has all the makeup on, but besides that she's just an average girl. I don't get it. And I'm not saying this to be mean, I just think she overrated. I really did like you before scarlett.

Well, she really does not have any sort of singing voice. She looks so pretty though, and that's what the video is about. If I was her and had her success and could do what I want, maybe I'd splurge on a little passion project, get excellent producers and record an album of cover songs of my favorite artist. Being associated with cool, excentric, one-of-a-kind Tom Waits can never hurt. Good for her. Really don 't love her voice though. My favorite version of "Falling Down" is by Holly Cole. So amazingly wonderful.

The video was good. The voice is not very attractive at all. There may be some character to it, but I don't like it:P Yuck.
