Guess Kat Von D's relationship with Jesse James (they broke up a second time last month) provided too much potential not to be used somewhere.
She's coming out with a debut album! Seriously, she is.
"I've been passionate about music all my life," Von D told E! at the Rage video game launch in L.A. "I've been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message."
What is Kat Von D's approach to making music, exactly?
"I think it's much like tattooing or the TV show or makeup, my clothing line, fashion," she said. "All those things, they're just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think, it's just going to be one of those things."
Sure it is.
As for the sound, Von D says it will be "more on the dark, more tragically romantic" side, so kind of a la Depeche Mode and the Cure, only edgier.
Only one question: Where do we pre-order??!
