Scarlett Johanssen Does Tom Waits With David Bowie

It's good to be back when there's news like this (from CrackedActor):
Starlet Scarlett Johanson (or ScarJo, as she is affectionately called by the Fug Girls) has cut an album of Tom Waits covers with Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio that is due out on May 20, 2008. The collaboration between Johansson and Bowie started when the two ran into each other at a party a few days before Johansson started recording. According to Rolling Stone, Bowie said he heard that she was working with Sitek. She told him that she indeed was and considered inviting him to visit her in the recording studio. Bowie didn’t stop by during ScarJo’s recording but while she was filming on location in Spain, Sitek called to tell her Bowie had recorded vocals for the tracks “Falling Down” and “Fannin’ Street.”
I don't think I need to add anything to this.

This reminds me of another question that's been bugging me for a while. What's the deal with advanced artists and Bette Midler?

She's done duets with Dylan and Tom Waits, and she had Ian Hunter as the guitarist on some of her albums. Is she an accessory?

PS: Here's a video of her rapping:
