Because we love to see a singer out of their usual habitat.
After releasing his Bleachers documentary 'Thank You And Sorry' with a comedy spin, it was only a matter of time before we saw Jack Antonoff making a movie cameo. Now he's appearing in forthcoming comedy drama 'Hello, My Name Is Doris' as the lead singer of a band called Baby Goya.
Bleachers' Jack Antonoff plays a fictitious musician in 'Hello, My Name Is Doris'
It's always fun to see a musician starring in a movie - especially when it's a comedy - whether they play themselves, a fictitious musician or even a completely different character altogether. We compiled a list of some of the best musician movie cameos in history.

One of Europe's best rock and metal festivals returned to its home at Donnington Park last weekend and it's safe to say, once again, that Download smashed it. With a range of bands from Kiss, Motley Crue, Billy Idol, Rise Against, Parkway Drive, We Are Harlot and more all booked to play, there was something for everyone at the festival, and that was one of the most noticeable highlights.
Despite the torrential rain pouring down during Slipknot's set, they pulled off one of the best shows to date on Friday and set an extremely high standard for the rest of the headliners. Playing hits like 'Psychosocial', 'Devil In I', 'Spit It Out' and 'Custer', and attempting to break the Download record for the most amount of people all jumping up at the same time they certainly went all out.
Muse were considered to be a controversial band to have booked, but all concerns were quickly dashed as soon as they hit the stage on Saturday. Matt Bellamy's vocal abilities were on top form as the band belted out tracks from their newly released album 'Drones' as well as well-known hits like 'Supermassive Black Hole' and 'Plug In Baby'. Even those who were indifferent or somewhat disliked Muse couldn't deny that they put on the show of a lifetime complete with dancing lights, pyrotechnics, confetti and inflatable balls.

Manson released his ninth album 'The Pale Emperor' back in January, but apparently chose the format for aesthetic reasons.
American rock icon Marilyn Manson may have discovered a novel way of battling internet piracy of music. It has been revealed that he released his latest album on Playstation 1 discs, which are harder to copy.
Over the weekend, gaming blog Kill Screen discovered the interesting fact about the shock rocker’s latest record The Pale Emperor, which was released back in January this year.
Manson and his creative team seem to have opted against the conventional CD-ROMs that are used for compact disc releases, instead choosing to burn the data onto the black polycarbonate discs that were manufactured for use on Sony’s first generation PlayStation when it released way back in 1994.

The rockers collaborate once again in their Summer North American series.
The Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson are set to unite on a co-headline tour of North America this Summer. Dubbed 'The End Of Times Tour', the series will span all major cities including Las Vegas, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago and Toronto.
The Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson to tour together
It's not an altogether unusual team; in December 2014, Manson made an appearance at the Pumpkins' show in London's Koko, performing a collaborative rendition of the latter's 1997 hit 'Ava Adore' and Manson's then new single 'Third Day of a Seven-Day Binge'. Now they'll be hitting the stage together officially with dates starting at the Concord Pavilion on July 7th and ending in Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center on August 8th.
With a career spanning two decades containing run-ins with the law, the media, the church, common decency and millions of angry parents, it seems strange that nowadays Marilyn Manson's biggest enemy is himself. Since 'The Golden Age of Grotesque' in 2003, Manson has been attempting more and more to be perceived as an artist, but the public just remembers Manson as the spooky provocateur; you know, the lawsuit for allegedly draping his genitals on a security guard at one his shows, the collection of skeletons and Nazi memorabilia, and that time he posed nude for an album cover save for prosthetic tits and androgynous bump protecting his modesty. I'm sure, in fact, that Manson probably sits up at night unable to sleep because nobody understands him, and refuses to let him go through a Bowie-like reinvention of himself. He will always be shock rocker Marilyn Manson, no matter what he says, wears or releases.
And so, in 2015, we find Marilyn Manson in an awkward place. Does he go down his artistic, intellectual route playing twenty minute long Theremin solos to nobody, or does he throw down a heavy beat and scream his lungs out about something goth? It would be incredibly easy to slag off 'The Pale Emperor', but on this, Manson's ninth LP, he manages to somehow marry the two together with a relative degree of success. It's actually pretty good, all things considered.
That said, the album opens with the Manson by numbers dirge-athon that is 'Killing Strangers'. This song is so typically Manson to the letter that it almost sounds like a parody. It's full of icy cold synths, crunchy basslines, annoyingly apathetic vocal delivery and some pretty turgid lyrics such as, 'You better run, we got guns'. It sounds very tired and incredibly uninspired.

The American rock group hit the top of the US charts with their sixth album 'American Beauty / American Psycho'.
Rockers Fall Out Boy have scored their third US Number 1 album, the latest Billboard 200 chart reveals. The group’s sixth studio album American Beauty / American Psycho shifted 218,000 units across all formats during the week ending January 25th, according to figures given by Nielsen SoundScan.
The new record knocked Meghan Trainor’s debut Title, which sold 86,000, down to Number 3, and fended off non-mover Taylor Swift at Number 2 with 119,000 units. It marks the first time since 2010 that a January sales month, typically a quiet time for major releases, has seen two albums debut at the top with sales of over 150,000.

The singer has tried to clarify his involvement in the controversial video which leaked online last month.
Last month a controversial NSFW video leaked online, directed by Eli Roth, which depicted singer Lana Del Rey being raped. The footage was said to have been shot for a Marilyn Manson music video, however the singer’s camp quickly released a statement denying his involvement. Now Manson has finally spoken out about the video and the exact nature of his involvement.
Marilyn Manson has spoken for the first time about the controversial Lana Del Rey video
Back when the video leaked online in November, a statement from Manson’s camp read, “"Manson did not direct this, shoot it, nor was it for a Marilyn Manson video or outtake footage made by him or to be used by him with his music.” Adding, “It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else's Lana Del Rey footage.”

Marilyn Manson has denied involvement in the video, despite Eli Roth telling Larry King that he made a controversial video with the musician and Lana Del Rey.
Marilyn Manson says he has nothing to do with a controversial video in which filmmaker Eli Roth simulates raping the singer Lana Del Rey. The clip was removed from YouTube on Thursday (November 20) following a copyright claim from Essential Music, who are linked to Manson's label Cooking Vinyl.
The clip, Sturmgruppe, also contained footage from two of Manson's music videos, spliced with horror movie style shots of a party with the word "rape" scrawled on the wall. The clip concludes with the attack on a woman who appears to be Del Rey.

The cancelled festival is the perfect example of the potential pitfalls of crowdfunding campaigns.
Crowdfunding has altered the landscape of contemporary culture, overwhelmingly for the better. No longer are fans subject to the whims of record labels and their increasingly focussed budget. For fans, the power is in their hands and they can directly contribute to ventures of their favourite acts bands, fund the continuation of their best-loved shows and play their part in the investment of innovative technologies. The successes are widespread- from Amanda Palmer’s well reported project to fund a new record, tour and book to the Veronica Mars movie project and Neil Young’s Pono high quality music player, crowdfunding is increasingly the source of cultural revolution.
Marilyn Manson pulled out of the event after cancellation rumours took hold.
But for every project that far exceeds its stated aims, there’s one that fall flat on its face. Former teen TV star Melissa Joan Hart raised a paltry $51,000 out of her stated aim of $2 million for a romantic comedy called Darci’s Walk Of Shame. In contrast, Kristen Bell’s Veronica Mars project reached its $2 million target in just 12 hours. And now another aborted project can be added to the list of abject crowdfunding failures. The three day event, which was due take place on August 15-17th in Kettering, sold a not too shabby amount of tickets- 7,500- but this was far from enough to make the event financially viable. What’s more, only £61,000 of a projected £1.2 million was raised through Kickstarter, far from enough to pay for headliners Marilyn Manson and Gary Numan. The problems that befell the event highlight the very facts that drive a crowdfunding project into the ground.

Looks like things are going to get even darker in the town of Charming for the final season of motorcycle drama 'Sons of Anarchy'.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association preview night on Monday, lead actor Charlie Hunnam told reporters that "Jax is in a very schizophrenic state, he's obviously very sad and vulnerable and broken with this huge amount of revenge and anger in his heart." Of course this is a result of the events in the final episode of the sixth season, which aired at the end of 2013. The shocking betrayal of Jax by his mother Gemma astounded fans and critics, and the fallout is sure to be massive when the show returns on September 9th.
Hunnam has played Jax since the very first episode of 'Sons of Anarchy' which aired in 2008.
The show has a strong fan base and often receives positive reviews, but has failed to pick up as many accolades as other FX shows such as 'Damages' and 'The Shield'. However, Hunnam stated he was more concerned with delivering a satisfying end to the series for fans than winning awards. "It doesn't matter at all," he said. "I feel there's this perception that we're upset about it. I really don't give a sh--. I make this for the people who love the show."

Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their engagement (and apparently he's telling time on her Rolex). These other once engaged celebs also never made it down the aisle.
The most shocking break up news of the week goes to Glee star Naya Rivera and now ex-fiancee Big Sean. The pair have called it quits amid rumours of infidelity and Rolex theft. Naya tweeted “@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now. Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin.” Although the tweet was quickly removed, the plot is definitely thickening.
Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their relationship
These others celebs also decided to end their very high profile engagements, although none of them accused each other of stealing expensive watches. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck AKA Bennifer were a bit of an odd couple to even begin with. In 2003 the couple were involved in an extremely high profile relationship, going so far as to co-star in a couple of god awful movies. The engagement was broken off in 2004, allegedly because Ben wasn’t ready to give up single life. Which makes sense because a year later he married Jennifer Garner. Burnnnnn.

Acting couple Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell welcome a little boy into the world.
True Blood actress Evan Rachel Wood and her husband, Billy Elliot actor Jamie Bell, have become first-time parents after Evan gave birth to a son on 29th July. No details of their baby's name or weight have been released yet but both parents have confirmed the birth via Twitter, as well as Evan's spokesperson releasing an official statement via E! News saying "Evan Rachel Wood and her husband Jamie Bell are parents to a beautiful boy. Parents and baby are all doing well."
Evan Rachel Wood Gave Birth "Naturally And Peacefully."
Jamie tweeted out to the world to express his joy at becoming a father for the first time: "Wow! What a day. Evan you are my warrior! You never cease to amaze. Thank you for birthing our son so naturally & peacefully. You did it!" with Evan replying in kind "And you are mine :) thank you for being there and helping me through it. I love you both more than words can say."

Suicidal Paris Jackson's family had told her she wasn't allowed to attend a rock concert: a decision that could have provoked her drastic actions.
Paris Jackson's shock suicide attempt yesterday (5th June) left her in hospital last night.
She reportedly sliced her arm with a cleaver knife and took an overdose of painkillers after a relative forbade her from attending Marilyn Manson's rock concert in Los Angeles.
The 15 year-old daughter of Michael Jackson also rang a suicide hotline after she left a note to her family and was later found unconscious.
The rapper didn't specify when the track will be released, but hopefully it'll be soon
Marilyn Manson, as you might imagine, doesn't keep the most conventional of company, but the fact that he is good friends with trap-rap star Gucci Mane just seems that little bit out of the blue that we're still struggling to come to terms with it. What's more, it turns out that the singer and rapper have hooked up on a song together, with the pair expected to bring the most unlikely of collaborations to the fore this summer.
Gucci told The Fader earlier today (May 31) that he and Manson hooked up after the Los Angeles premiere of the new movie Spring Breakers on March 14, with the two artists recording their track in the studio until 6am. The rapper then went on to mention how the pair first met and how they each share an interest in each others work. Gucci said, "We got the dopest record in the world, me and Marilyn. Me and him got one of the craziest records ever made. We made it whatever day Spring Breakers came out in Cali. He came to the sneak premiere, and after we did the red carpet and watched the movie, me and him went to the studio and made us a record. That’s the day that we met and began being friends."
For those of you who still might be doubting the unlikely friendship, earlier this month the rapper Instagrammed a photo of the rocker wearing a 'Free Gucci' tank top, and also went on to discuss how he introduced the singer to songwriter Kevin McCall and has been keeping the singer in mind for another potential link-up whilst he records his new album.
Johnny Depp appears to be forging a new career for himself as ‘surprise guitarist’ for some of the world’s biggest rock artists.
OK, so we have scant evidence on which to be basing this claim but there are at least two incidences in the recent past on which we are building our case. On Thursday (November 30, 2012), Depp appeared onstage at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, according to People.com, where he lent a hand to Alice Cooper, and knocked out a few riffs for the veteran rocker.
Dressed in a striking black hat, adorned with feathers, a striped black shirt and jeans and an elaborate beaded necklace (he never has quite shaken that Captain Jack Sparrow look, has he?), Depp joined Cooper for a few covers. They played a version of ‘Break on Through (To the Other Side)’ by The Doors before charging through a version of ‘Revolution’ by The Beatles and, just to add that Wayne’s World vibe, they then ploughed through ‘Foxy Lady,’ by Jimi Hendrix. A source said “Johnny was in great spirits. He was really happy and at ease, especially on stage with the rest of the band."
Evan Rachel Wood, 25, has tied the knot with actor Jamie Bell, 26, best known for his turn in Billy Elliot. A representative for Wood confirmed the news to People magazine on Tuesday (October 30, 2012).
"The bride wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera," the rep says in a statement. "It was a small ceremony with close family and friends." The pair have been rumored to be engaged since January, though never made public their intention to marry. What we do know is that they first began dating in 2005, after co-starring in Green Day's Wake Me Up When September Ends music video, though Rachel Wood soon began a relationship with the rocker Marilyn Manson. In a Twitter post on Wednesday, The Wrestler actress said "Words cannot describe the happiness I am feeling. Overwhelming," before following up with, "Song of the day "(today i met) the boy i'm gonna marry" #darlenelove." British actor Max Minghella - a close friend of Bell - posted a message that read, "Yesterday I got to see my best friend exchange vows with the love of his life. Still coming down from high," which Rachel Wood subsequently re-tweeted. Bell is yet to tweet about the nuptials, though handily told followers a couple of weeks back, "My girl wears Batman socks. Ten points!"
He is currently shooting Lars Van Trier's hugely controversial drama Nymphomaniac, while Rachel Wood is about to begin work on the romance It Is What It Is, with Sigourney Weaver.
