EYE SCOOP

Now that they've posed in their own ad campaigns and acted in Giuseppe Tornatore's recent film, "The Starmaker," Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have come out with their very own CD. Called "D&G Music," the record, which will be in music stores in Italy next week, features six funky, heavy-bass dance mixes with Dolce and Gabbana saying--rather than singing--things like "D&G, D&G, D&G is love."
"Making a record has always been a dream of ours," said Dolce.
"Yeah, but we realized pretty quickly that we aren't singers by any stretch of the imagination when we heard our voices on the first mix," chimed in Gabbana. "It seemed like each note was flatter than the next. So we scrapped that number and just went with spoken phrases, like an undercurrent to the music."
The CD will be distributed in other European countries over the next two months and will debut in the U.S. in September. It was produced by EMI's Italian subsidiary. A video for the first tune, "Early 70's Radio," is in the works and should come out at the end of the month, with appearances by the two designers.
Gabbana said when they ran into their pal Madonna in New York last week and showed her a copy of the demo, she quipped, "I guess I might as well start designing clothes," and then offered to help them out on a remix.
