Liv Tyler
Actress Liv Tyler is following her father and stepfather into the music business after recording a cover of an INXS tune for a new Givenchy advertisement.

The 34 year old admits she grew up dreaming of chart success but appearances in her dad Steven Tyler's Aerosmith videos led to more on screen time and less in the studio.

But now she's tackling music at last, telling People.com, "I got to record a cover of INXS' I Need You Tonight for a Givenchy commercial. It was fun and terrifying and wonderful. I always thought when I was a little girl that I'd be a singer. My mom (Bebe Buell) was ...

Liv Tyler
With the news of Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child, it's a fine time to look back at some of the other infamous children fathered out of wedlock by today's biggest stars.

Angel Iris Murphy Brown: It was a shock when Melanie Brown stepped forward and said she was pregnant with Eddie Murphy's ch...

Florida Native Hilary McRae Is A Promising Young Talent

Hilary McRae
The good thing is good music is forever. It just needs the ears than can appreciate it. Luckily, every now and again it gets lucky. There's a girl. She's 21 and blonde. However, you might not catch her rolling around in the sand and cooing about penciled in love and how grown she is.

Her voice alone possesses many wonderful traits: beauty, seasoning, unrigged emotion, and mystery. Hilary McRae is not your everyday powdered pink soultress. She's like Wonder Woman equipped with a utility belt that can bring down a New Orleans juke joint in flames. McRae plays the piano, saxopho...
