Jazz star Diana Krall plays dress-up for her new album


Multi-award-winning jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall says that her sizzling, sexy look on her latest album cover, Glad Rag Doll, is just her playing the role of the album's namesake.

"I'm just playing dress-up, playing a character, playing a glad rag doll," says the 47-year-old two-time Grammy winner, who holds the record as the only artist to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard jazz charts.

Fans can forget about her dressing like her album cover for her live shows.

"I'm not gonna be doing what a pop singer might do, as in dress like that for a performance. It's a different thing," she says in a phone interview with Life!.
