VIDEO: Brittany Murphy Sings on Paul Oakenfold Track


Brittany Murphy was worried people wouldn’t take her seriously as a singer.

The actress - who died on December 20 at age 32 - provided the vocals for DJ Paul Oakenfold’s 2006 dance track “Faster Kill Pussycat” but wasn’t keen on be credited for the song.

“I said to her, ‘Why hide behind something? You have a really great vocal. People are going to be shocked and pleasantly happy with what they’re going to hear. You are not one of these actresses who are trying to sing and not doing a good job of it,’” Paul said. “I demoed three other girls on that song - and some of the girls were pretty big singers - and Brittany blew them away.”

The Grammy-nominated artist also revealed Brittany was in the process of recording her own album and says it’s the world’s loss they won’t ever be able to hear it.

“She would have done well. She wanted to try this with me, this smoky blues sound with electronic rhythms. She wanted to sound more traditional originally but I told her we should go more edgy. She was really excited by that and it’s just a shame it never got as far as people thought it could. It’s just a shame that the world is not going to hear more songs of Brittany Murphy,” Oakenfold told People magazine.
