Hitting a high note: Keira Knightley to follow in the footsteps of Priyanka Chopra
While Selena Gomez and our very own Bipasha Basu share a love for the phrase ‘Love Yourself’, it seems A-list stars Keira Knightley and local lass Priyanka Chopra are likely to share a career trajectory.Though actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson and Nicole Kidman have all sung for films or made special appearances at music festivals from time to time, signing up with a record label is a much bigger leap into straddling a parallel career as a pop star. PC has done it in no uncertain terms (she has three big releases to her credit) and now ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Keira is likely to follow suit.
“Keira has offers on the table and is tempted by them,” says a music industry insider, but her most notable pat on the back comes from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Well-placed sources suggest Adam is keen to sign Keira to his new record label 222 Records after being impressed by her vocals in the film ‘Begin Again’, for which she sung four songs. “Adam thinks she could be a successful pop star and sell loads of records, which would help kick-start his career as a label boss,” says our transatlantic fly on the wall.
Kiera — who is married to Klaxons musician James Righton — claims she knows “nothing about music,” but Adam (who judges reality show ‘The Voice’) knows potential when he sees it. So all that’s left for Kiera to do is take the plunge and belt it out. We’re pretty sure PC would be happy to share tips on how to manage two demanding careers concurrently!
