Mel Gibson’s pregnant girlfriend releases her first horrible song

x men screening 290409


Mel Gibson’s baby-mama wants us to know she’s not just some clever golddigger who gets pregnant any time some rich, crazy dude gives her a second glance. No, Oksana Grigorieva wants us to know that she’s a “singer”. And People magazine has the evidence to prove it. Oksana has released her first single to People, and it’s one of the most awful things I’ve ever heard. The song is called “Say My Name” – but, no, it’s not a Destiny’s Child cover. What’s weird is that if someone with a great voice did the same song, it might be pretty good. But Oksana’s voice is just… horrible. The word that came to mind was “screeching”.

Until now, Oksana Grigorieva’s name has been more associated with Hollywood gossip than with musical chops – the Russia-born singer and pianist is pregnant with Mel Gibson’s child – but Grigorieva hopes that will change starting with Monday’s release of “Say My Name,” the first single from her forthcoming album, Beautiful Heartbreak.

A classically trained pianist who hails from Saransk, Russia, Grigorieva, 39, penned every song on the album except for “Say My Name,” which exclusively debuts on – for that she collaborated on the lyrics with none other than Gibson himself.

“It is the first and one of the simplest songs on the album, but also one of the most intimate,” says Grigorieva, whose baby with Gibson, 53, is due in late fall. “It is naked, intimate, raw emotion, little more than piano and voice as if it is a cry from the soul.”

Signed to Gibson’s record label, Icon Records, Grigorieva first stepped out with the Oscar-winning filmmaker at a Los Angeles screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine on April 28, two weeks after Gibson’s wife Robyn filed for divorce. Gibson, who has said that he and Robyn have been separated for three years, announced the pregnancy on the May 25 Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Starting at 9 a.m. EST “Say My Name” may be downloaded at, where more free downloads of new tracks from Beautiful Heartache and videos will be available each week.

I find two thing odd. First, Oksana seems hellbent on proving that she’s actually got a career, which may come in handy if it turns out the baby she’s carrying isn’t Mel’s. Except that I really believe that Oksana’s not dumb enough to get pregnant by another guy and try and pass the kid off as Mel’s. So why does she need a career? Oksana could just sit there and be a golddigger. Enjoy the credit cards and the crazy, Oksana. Secondly, since when did People magazine become the go-to outlet for releasing a song? People has been pushing a more family-friendly version of Mel and Oksana’s relationship for a while now, even getting exclusive interviews with Oksana’s mom in Moscow. Methinks Mel wants to give his golddigger some legitimacy.

    Yes, that was truly awful. The article states she’s a classically trained pianist, but Alicia Keys she is most definitely not.

    If twats like Heidi and Spenser can release songs/videos, this isn’t the last we’ve heard of her yowling, especially when backed by Mel’s billion.

  2. boomchakaboom says:

    Gah! My ears are shutting themselves down. I can only imagine Simon Cowell’s reaction to that…that…noise if this woman auditioned for AI. Not good.

  3. jhwoodw says:

    OMG! That falls into the dying cat catagory of bad singers.

  4. HS says:

    like nails on a chalkboard

  5. sfdiosjdaf says:

    i dont see how its bad?? its depressing, but not a bad song.

  6. AMy says:

    Ok. Now that apparently the bar has been lowered for singers then I know I could have a career as a singer. haha Horrible!

  7. raven says:

    Now, Kaiser, this is a real golddigger.

  8. OXA says:

    I am thinking she can play Octomom in the musical.

  9. Jessica says:

    I actually liked it…I wanted to hate it and was expecting it to be terrible but I heard no screeching. I think people hate it because they hate her.

  10. bagladey says:

    Maybe Oksana should be a songwriter instead of a singer, because the song isn’t that bad, but the singing is awful.

  11. Orangejulius says:

    Hahaha to her playing Octomom in the musical! She does resemble her a little, in that plastic surgeried way. Also, she really needs to dump that hairstyle…very witchy Morticia-like.

  12. jenn says:

    it’s mediocre. Her voice is too thready and doesn’t seem strong enough to carry the song. I think it would actually be good if it was done by someone else, Vanessa Carlton, Michelle Branch…anyone else.

  13. maria says:

    Personally i don’t find it horrible. her voice may not be that strong, but comparing to others the song is OK.

  14. bros says:

    her voice is a bit thready but no more than j lo’s and she has several albums. her voice isnt bad in its lower register. her high notes are where its too thin.

  15. elainebenes says:

    My ears will never be the same.

  16. BlueSkies says:

    Just remember, that voice is computer enhanced. Truly annoying.

  17. someone says:

    What kind of music is that exactly..I didn’t like the song at all..her voice seemed weak to me.

  18. wow says:

    So I was wrong, she actually does have a career as a singer, pianist. I stand corrected.

  19. fizXgirl314 says:

    wow there’s TWO headlines about octomom today on celebitchy… oh… wait… sorry :-p

  20. Devries says:

    It’s not that bad, she’s just got a REALLY thick Russian accent under there that makes everything sound sloppy.

  21. Yae says:

    Her voice needs some work. But the saddness of the song was soulful and the overall feeling of it, very well done I think. I’ve felt that rushing, sad, intense way with one man in my life. I enjoyed the song. It brought back memories.

  22. Mave says:

    YUCK! Maybe this is good Russian music but it is horrible here in America. ; (

  23. j. ferber says:

    She definitely needs singing lessons. The intonation is off and I actually felt no real soul there. No real talent, either. Gibson is pulling a Citizen Kane here, trying to legitimize his girlfriend through her music. Robyn should rightfully laugh her ass off and Mel is an ass. I’m curious as hell about her golddigging secrets. She’s pretty damn successful at that, her true career.

  24. Maritza says:

    She doesn’t sound bad but the song is very depressing for it to be a first release, not a good choice.

  25. annie says:

    It sounds ok to me, the song is different and depressing.

  26. Trashaddict says:

    ferber’s right: first thing I though of was Citizen Kane. Only Mel’s character is less weighty than Orson Welles’s. Nyuk. It’s kind of pathetically stereotypically mid-life crisis embarrassing. His poor kids.

  27. Mel says:

    Uhg! What a golddigging b*tch.

    She sounds like a rat caught in a trap…
