Actress Brittany Murphy is the latest Hollywood star planning a musical career - so she can turn her poems into pop songs.

The 25-year-old star - who starred in rapper Eminem's debut movie 8 MILE - often wakes up in the middle of the night with stream-of-consciousness "rants", and scribbles them down in a notebook she keeps by her bed.

She says, "I'm going to start recording an album, so a lot of that stuff will be incorporated. I write every day."
