The Milli Vanilli Movie Is Happening!

milli vanilli The Milli Vanilli Movie Is Happening!

Here they are holding their “Best New Artist” Grammy before it was REVOKED.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]MILLI VANILLI[/lastfm] are the only act in history to have to give a Grammy back.   

Milli Vanilli were a late ’80s singing duo . . . or so we THOUGHT.  Turns out they didn’t actually sing their own songs . . . which included “Blame It on the Rain” and “Girl I’m Gonna Miss You”.

In 1990, they won the Grammy for Best New Artist.  But it was taken from them when it was revealed that ROB PILATUS and FABRICE MORVAN didn’t actually sing the songs on their debut album.

They tried to make a comeback using their own voices . . . but nobody cared.  Pilatus fell under the spell of drugs, alcohol and petty crime . . . and in 1998, he was found dead of an overdose in a hotel room in Germany.

Long story short, there’s a movie about their story in the works.  It’s got the full support of Morvan and the Pilatus estate.  And that’s pretty much all we know about it now.
