When it was announced last week that model-turned-divorcee Christie Brinkley was going to play Roxie Hart in Broadway’s Chicago revival, someone on “All That Chat” posted the immortal comment, “World to end. Story at 11.”
But the woman can kinda sorta dance right? After all, she strutted around that classic “Uptown Girl” video without falling down.
And she can sing too, no? Um, kinda sorta.
Check out this clip from Extra of Christie playfully attempting the unlikely choice of “America” from West Side Story and see if she’s the new Callas–or just plain callous.
Bear in mind that Christie herself ends the clip by saying, “Simon Cowell, I don’t really think I can sing.
“But you know what?
“Nobody can shut me up!”
