No, we are not getting a jump on April Fool’s Day. Yes, you read that headline right. According toMTV, Tim Burton’s muse and his river-crying buddy will be recording together, and not just on any old song — a cover of one of the greats, Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain.” It should maybe come as no surprise that a guy who played Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, Ed Wood, the Mad Hatter, John Dillinger, and so on is, um, “eccentric” enough to be BFFs with the shock rocker, or that he’d want to appear on an album called Born Villains (seriously, check out his resume). Oh, and one last thing — that Carly Simon song? Totally written about us. [MTV]
