Fun Fact: the vocals on that song are none other than Milla Jovovich, aka Leeloo from Resident Evil, who did exactly one album in 1994 to answer the question "what would it sound like if Tori Amos didn't play piano."

you prompted me to check wikipedia - the music section.

Her choice of collaborations and musical output makes me think of Jackson Pollock applying paint.

I get the impression it's fun being Milla Jovovich. No comments on talent, no comments on roles... but like - you know how Leo DiCaprio or Dustin Hoffman are all passionate and intense and scowling all the time while Kurt Russell is vaguely bummed he only made it to the minor leagues but he consoles himself by being Snake Plisskin and marrying Goldie Hawn? You watch that dude and he comes across as tickled pink even when he's supposedly a suicidal special forces ops mourning his recently-dead wife on the other side of the universe being oppressed by Egyptian aliens.

I'll bet Milla Jovovich enjoys herself immensely.

    ...Leeloo from Resident Evil...

Erm... what?

Alice from Resident Evil.

Leeloo from Fifth Element.

(All in good fun. May be the only time in my life I ever get to correct you!)
