Collette To Launch Singing Career

ABOUT A BOY star TONI COLLETTE has shocked fans by turning her back on movies to launch a singing career.

The 31-year-old decided to quit acting to make her first album, after the devastating reviews of her film CONNIE AND CARLA and she's relieved she has completed her last two films - the drama IN HER SHOES, by LA CONFIDENTIAL director CURTIS HANSON, and comedy THE LAST SHOT, co-starring MATTHEW BRODERICK and ALEC BALDWIN.

Collette explains, "I've been writing music for more than ten years and I think if I don't actually record it, I'll go insane.

"But I don't want to be one of those crass actors turned singers or indeed singers turned actors.

"There are two sides to the coin, the notion that if you're a creative person why should it be funneled through one avenue, why shouldn't you leap over into other areas?

"Then there's the idea you stick to what you do because you're an embarrassment. But I certainly won't be baring my midriff.

"I won't be purring, there'll be no little sex kitten thing going on, it's just music that is part of me and I want to get it out."
