Oksana Grigorieva
and her lawyers touted her music credentials in court this week, but we now know exactly how Mel Gibson feels about her music -- he says it sucks.

Sources connected to Mel tell TMZ ... Gibson deeply regrets supporting Oksana's music career -- especially plunking down a fortune to produce a CD and music video.  Mel even paid for a studio in Oksana's home.

Mel privately says Oksana's voice and music are "horrible," and he's "embarrassed" that he promoted her.

So that's Mel's opinion. Listen to :30 seconds of an Oksana song, and then tell us ...

I didn't have to listen to her now. I watched a Mel Gibson movie several months ago on HBO. At the end of it was a song with some woman droning on and on. It never seemed to end and was horrid. I actually sat through the credits to see who on earth it could be. It was Oxy! Tragic!!

Did they play it backwards? Anyways this is one of her best. Mel was really really drunk when he spent so much money on her recording career.

She's not a very good singer. She also seems to have taken Gibson on a financial and emotional odyssey. But it has to be admitted that she is quite attractive for her age.

Why would you make an ignorant public comment like that about the mother of your child? Wait, I know, because you are selfish and you have a brain that has been picked in alcohol for several decades. Moron.

This only makes Mad Mel seem even crazier. I've heard Oksana's music and she's a gifted singer and pianist. Which is twice as talented as anything Mel has accomplished.

I couldn't get through the entire sample. Horrendous. What was he thinking?! Mel, next time, just buy the milk, you don't need to buy the whole cow.

I hope she has a backup career plan because singing isn't going to get her anywhere. She's such a loser. I pity the next fool that gets involved with her.

OUCH! I'd forgotten how awful she is, not to mention delusional. Such dark yet nerdy lyrics, like an emo 13 yr old trying to be poetic and clever. I don't blame Mel for being embarrassed about trying to promote her career. She had him fooled for a short time but it was long enough for her to get her claws into a lot of him money. What a fraud she is.

Love the Amazon reviews of her CD: FAIL!

I purchased this CD to scare wild animals away from my garden. It works like a charm.

'Extremely' dull listening...could not endure it more than 2 minutes at most as my ears could not take it more than that. Better to listen to a demo first or check it out on youtube before wasting your money on this one.

Highly Disappointing, December 16, 2010
By G. Eastman - See all my reviews
This review is from: Beautiful Heartache (Audio CD)
I should begin by saying that one of the few note-worthy qualities of this bewildering release are the compelling visual effects and imagery Mr. Gibson created and produced; unfortunately, Ms. Grigorieva's video presence comes across as overly wooden and self-conscious.

It appears Grigorieva likes to combine the story-poem with classical, pop and strong European music influences. Presumably, her ambition here was to create a somewhat dark, soulful yet ambiguous motif that is movingly sultry and unique. She succeeded with the darkness; however, her music can be ineptly dissonant, unsympathetic, and at times obnoxious.

The immediate problem is her ever-present singing, which is mediocre at best, and her overconfident `fortissimo' that causes the listener to either wince or cry out in protest. There are mistakes in her piano performances as well; inexcusable for music that is not played live and does not have a high degree of difficulty. Her repetitive use of certain minor chord combinations are monotonous and uninspired. Some of the phrasing, accompanying instrumentation and progressions are clumsy, awkwardly competitive, and predictably annoying. When recording sessions become this painfully egocentric and amateurish, it is time to send the musicians home and call it a day.

When you combine all of these elements and more, this CD is an unqualified miss. To be fair, Ms. Grigorieva deserves some recognition for her efforts. However, I now understand why music critics feel this CD may find a small fan base of the musically challenged. If you're going to do something different, do it well. Whether it is classical, jazz, rock, metal, techno, country opera, or other musical genre, good music should be compelling and invite the listener in - not push them away. Grigorieva would do well to adhere to writing in the future, and let the truly talented and experienced performance artists take it from there.

Mel did NOT make a public comment -read more carefully - it says he says this privately, and it was reported by "sources close to Mel" to TMZ. In other words a LEAK or people are just guessing what he thinks to be able to offer a story.

This isn't Mel's style, it is Oksana's. Have you read the interview she and her mother just gave to the Russian press? Now THAT is trashing a parent and it is about Lucia, not her music which is disgusting.

Personally, I think it's only obvious he would think it sucks and I am glad to know he has fully regained his Ox-sanity and sees her for what she is: a baby shaking, extortionist bitch.

Nightshifts at TMZ must be very boring.
This is not NEWS because from the alledged tapes

See http://www.salon.com/life/feature/2010/07/16/mel_gibson_tapes_complete_transcript

M: That's how little I think of your ******* talent

Or is this a PR Stunt trying to get sympathy from all the
Mel Gibson haters for Oksana?

According to the alledged tapes this is what Oksana said about her music:

O: (yelling) Because I'm saving my life, and I'm saving daughter's life. That's what I'm doing. I don't give a damn about my music, and I don't give a damn if you spend another penny, I'm saving her life

Now, we all know how this story ended in court:
More custody for Mr. Gibson, 750.000 dollars and free
advertisement for her CD.

Just saying..............

"Beautiful Heartache?" sounds like an Oxymoron.
