Jewel: Betwixt The Music with Sarah Palin!

Jewel tells the story of how she and Sarah Palin formed a band in this new Funny or Die video.

“My first night in town, I play this open mic at this place called the Crab N’ Coffee, and afterwards, this woman comes up to me and she was, like, ‘Hey, my name’s Sarah, I play flute – do you want to jam sometime?’ And I was, like, YEAH!” Jewel, 36, recounted.

Be sure to watch to see what broke their band up…and what Todd Palin‘s suggestion for the band name was!

FYI: This isn’t Jewel‘s first Funny or Die venture – watch Undercover Karaoke if you missed it!

Jewel: Emmys 2010 Red Carpet

Jewel hits the red carpet at the 2010 Emmy Awards on Sunday (August 29) at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

The 36-year-old singer wore a strapless Zuhair Murad gown paired with a coral-and-diamond cocktail ring by Jacob & Co and Rene Caovilla heels.

She will be performing tonight during the tribute portion of the show. Jewel talked about how she was selected to perform, saying, “I sent them a song that I wrote for a friend who had passed away.” The Emmy producer then picked her to sing the song during the ceremony.

Funny or Die Pitches 'Undercover Karaoke' for TV

Funny or Die‘s latest viral video idea may be hitting television screens nationwide!

The comedy website posted “Undercover Karaoke with Jewel” last week, featuring the folk singer disguising herself and visiting a karaoke bar as “Karen,” a businesswoman with amazing vocal ability. Watch her transformation and performance below!

The FoD team is reportedly pitching a television show based on “music stars from the past 4 decades going undercover to places where comedic situations will ensue, showcasing their talent,” according to Deadline.

Jewel Covers 'Shape' July 2010

Jewel shows off her bikini bod on the cover of Shape magazine’s July 2010 issue, on newsstands Monday, June 21.

Here’s what the 36-year-old musician had to share:

On being labeled “the chubby Renee Zellweger” when she was just becoming famous: “My feelings were so hurt by that story, I ended up bingeing on an entire cake. Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn’t do it. It made me think, ‘I can’t go down this road.’ I had seen so many performers develop eating disorders or try to control their weight with drugs, and I decided I would do no harm to my body.”

On female body image: “We should be more like men, God bless ‘em. They can take their shirts off and show their man boobs, and they don’t give a hoot. But women are so critical of themselves. We can be gorgeous and hot and still be embarrassed to wear a tank top. So if you can’t stop looking in the mirror, at least try to not think badly about yourself when you do.”
