Emmy Rossum Pinks Out @ Teen Choice Awards
Emmy Rossum looked positively refreshing in hot pink Malandrino at the 2007 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday (her first TCAs).
“It felt very end of summer, very raspberry sherbert!” she said. Before pimping JustJared.com, Emmy shared about her upcoming album and her naked pool parties!
On her new album: October 23. It’s called “Inside Out” on Geffen Records. It’s extremely personal. I think there are very emotional songs that are very auto-biographical that was just piano vocal. And also there are some songs are very layered. Some songs are sexier and some are more honest, so I hope there’s something for everyone! Probably one or two of them [are dance-able]! But mostly it’s introspective music. I wanted to create it to take you away from the world as an escape from the rush of everyday life.
On how her sound is different than other artists: “It’s ambient pop. It’s really honest and sensual and fresh and the album is mostly me. It’s a lot of rich-layered vocals. 150 vocals on one track sometimes — it’s different sounding. I write for, I hope, real women. A lot of women on Top 40 are objectified. And I hope I can write for real women and show them in a way that’s honest and beautiful and sensual.”
On her touring in the near future: I just did a Rehearsals.com performance. Hopefully that’s the first thing you guys see. I’m also going to do Good Morning America and Leno towards the end of the year and then some other performances in at the beginning of next year in New York.
On her naked pool parties: “I went skinny-dipping at my fifth birthday party at a pool party that wasn’t supposed to be a naked pool party. But I didn’t know that because I didn’t like wearing clothes when I was younger. But thank God I don’t do that anymore!”

On balancing acting with singing: “I hope I’ll be able to do both. I’m hopefully starting a film towards the end of the year. There are only 24 hours in a day, so I try to use a lot of them.”
On her filming her first music video last Friday: “I was in the middle of Santa Monica Boulevard filming my first single, “Slow Me Down.” Hopefully it’ll be out in a few weeks. We were shooting a different speeds because the song’s about the pace of life and to create the blur of the world and how overwhelming that can be. We shot with a green screen on Santa Monica Boulevard with not all of the permits we should have had. [laughs] We kind of stopped traffic for a second but it was really fun!
On training her voice differently for “Phantom of the Opera” and the album: “I got to use different tones of my voice. Raspier tones. I combine different tones like an airier and a more feminine tone with more of a sexier raspier tone to get this warm rich tone that is comforting and sexiest in a different way.”
