What's Weirder? (Bizarre Music News Edition)

153048__dunst_lWhat’s weirder?

A. Kirsten Dunst (pictured, right) is "seriously mulling" the possibility of starring as Debbie Harry (left) in a biopic. (From Daily Variety, very last item.)

B. Tim Burton directed the new Killers video for "Bones." Skeletons: They’re just like us! They go running on the beach, playguitars, wear shades, and pair up for road trips, you know, like in The Simple Life. 

C. The Pixies will hit the studio to record their first record since 1991’s Trompe Le Monde. They reunited recently to tour, but they want to become "vital" again instead of stagnating as a "county fair band," says singer Frank Black.

(See Annie’s pick after the jump.)

Tough call. B is kind of dumb. C is kind of cool. So I say A, in hopes that it’s not vaild in the first place.  The last word I’d think of when I see Kirsten Dunst is "edge," unless it’s immediately followed by "of Seventeen… magazine." Sorry Kirsten. (And no playing Stevie for you, either.)

    In terms of physical features alone, I actually think Kirsten Dunst is perfect to play Debrah Harry. She’s an incredibly talented actor to boot and I think she really could pull it off.

    In terms of physical features alone, it seems Elisha Cuthbert is perfect to play Debbie Harry (at least based on that photo of her).
    So, come on Annie, Dunst may not your favorite,b ut she DOES have skillz (especially compared to other young Hollywood actresses) and more than a passing resemblence…so I don’t think it’s weird at all.
    I don’t really think ANY of these are that weird actually.

  • Jonathan

    Dunst could pull that off no problem.
    Tim Burton directing a Killers music video is strange.
    Who are the Pixies?

  • mike

    No offence, Jonathan, but today’s my thirtieth birthday, and that question just made me feel very old.

  • tamuchi

    “Who are the Pixies?”?!?!?!
    That’s a joke, right?
    Please tell me that’s a joke.
    It’s kinda like asking, “Who are the Ramones?”.
    Anyway, I don’t think it’s weird at all that Frank Black (or is that Black Francis?) and company are heading to the studio.
    Weird is Tim Burton directing the Killers…come on Tim, the Killers?!?! Please say it isn’t so.

    God I hope that the Debbie Harry thing is a hoax.
    Either Elisha Cuthbert or Mena Suvari should be playing that, not Dunst.

  • ian

    I nominate courtney love for playing debbie harry even though she’s almost 40. I think the upcoming genesis reunion is weirder than a new pixies cd. Jonathan, if you’ve ever seen fight club, the pixies play at the end of that movie.

  • Tim

    Who’s this Nirvana I hear the kids talking about so much?

  • Nick

    Like other posters have noted, Elisha Cuthbert should play Debbie Harry. The resemblance is uncanny.
    But Kirsten Dunst should die her hair and cameo as CBGB cohort Patty Smith. Now THAT will be INTERESTING!!

  • paige

    i dont care if that killers’ song is good or not… that video is awesome! Tim should do more music videos…

  • Brad

    Tim Burton directing a video is kind of weird but I love the song. The current backlash against the Killers is what is weird to me.
    I am quite excited for the new Pixies release. They stopped recording way too early. They weren’t hugely popular but they were extremely influential to other musicians.
    Kirstin Dunst seems too sweet to play Debbie Harry but that’s why they call it acting.

  • Phyllis Gabor

    I always wanted Michelle Pfeiffer to play Debbie Harry.
    All my best,
    Phyllis G.

  • TomT

    Phyllis! I was just sitting here trying to remember who it was I had seen recently who should play Debbie Harry in a movie. And yes! It was Michelle Pfeiffer. So thanks.

  • Brandon

    Actually, I think all three of these are pretty awesome!

  • Betty Boop

    I’d rather it be Kirsten Dunst that the recent rumour I heard that Lindsay Lohan wants the role (I’m SO sick of her overexposed face everywhere).
