News: Rocker Dave Navarro to Direct Porn


Adult production company Teravision has announced the directorial debut of rock star Dave Navarro. The former member of such bands as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction has directed a feature-length movie titled Dave Navarro: Broken. It features an all-star cast, including Sasha Grey, Jenna Haze, Victoria Sin, Audrey Bitoni, Kayla Page, Lisa Daniels, Tommy Gunn, Marco Banderas, Mark Davis and Spyder Jonez.

“I got into this because I have a lot of friends in the business,” Navarro told www.xbiz.com. “I’ve been around the music business for years and years, and I watched it spiral into absolute bullshit and nothingness and become the same old, safe regurgitated things that the corporate world is trying to shove down the public’s throat. But in terms of edge and the taboo factor, it doesn’t seem to exist anymore [in music]—and to me, this seems like the only art form out there that’s exciting, shocking and taboo, yet there’s a huge market for it,” he said.

“As far as what people think—there’s always been a skewed opinion of me anyway. People have accused me of being a sellout for doing certain things, and the fact of the matter is, if I didn’t do something I wanted to do because of what people think, that would make me a sellout,” Navarro added. “I do what I want to do because I want to do it. I’m not going to shy away from something like this because of what public opinion might be. That’s the bottom line.”

Navarro’s directorial debut is part of Teravision’s new “Celebrity Series” line that will feature a different celebrity director for each installment. Dave Navarro: Broken will be released on September 27.
