Today in Music News: ScoJo Keeps Singing, Metallica Cop Fans Are Pissed, and Miley Cyrus Loves Maiden

Your daily dose of national music news for Wednesday, January 28, 2009...

  • Scarlett Johansson remains dead set on adding "singer" to her resume: She has now covered Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye" for the soundtrack for He's Just Not That Into You. You know the movie your girlfriend is going to drag you to? Yep, that one. Scarlett, please, I beg, just look pretty and stop singing. 

  • When I think of police officers, I think of three things: going to jail, buzzcuts and a sweet, sweet cop mustaches. But, thinking of them as fans of Metallica never comes to mind. And yet it seems that a Brewster, Mass., off-duty officer got a little drunk and pissed on a fellow Metallica fan. I wonder if his superiors will dub him unforgiven? Get it, "Unforgiven"?Like the song?
  • Miley Cyrus (IT'S MILEY!) is hitting back at the "haters" who have accused her of posing as an Iron Maiden fan. She has been seen recently rockin' a Maiden t-shirt and swears she's a fan of the metal band, so she took to her video bloggity thing to let us know she likes Maiden--she even name checks a few songs. Which honestly is more than I could do. No word yet if she's a fan of Dying Fetus, but we'll keep you posted.
