Suddenly it seems like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can’t do anything without launching a music career.

In the last week alone, two stars have said that they have this super-couple to thank for their musical achievements.

First it was revealed that Coldplay singer Chris Martin stays "hungry" for success because he’s still trying to live up to Brad in the eyes of Gwyneth Paltrow, even though his wife broke up with the actor 11 years ago.

And then actor/director/musician Billy Bob Thorton, who has just released his debut album, said that he couldn’t make music if it weren’t for his three-year marriage to Angelina.

"I accidentally became a movie star," the actor told Britain’s Daily Star. "That was a break between records. But the experiences and some of the relationships I’ve had – mentioning no names – have made this possible."

Hinting at the identity of the girl in question, as if we needed it, he added, "Geminis," (such as a certain Ms Jolie), "are rascals!"

 

So, presumably, it’s only a matter of time before Jennifer Aniston gets to work on her first LP.
