Joaquin Phoenix was on Late Night With David Letterman last night, February 11th. Only one word can describe the “interview” – BIZARRE.
Joaquin sat throughout the interview and answered David Letterman with one word answers, mumbled, chewed gum, wore dark glasses and barely looked up. And that was the good part. When David commented on the chewing gum – Joaquin took it out of his mouth and stuck it under David’s desk.
David, ever the comedienne, was his usually funny self. He referred to Joaquin and his new grizzly adams like beard as the “uni-bomber”. David tried to get Joaquin to speak but Joaquin would have none of it. David ended the interview by saying,
“Joaquin – I’m sorry you couldn’t be here tonight”.
He then said, “We owe an apology to Farrah Fawcett “– another bizarre interview a couple of years back.
What is going on with Joaquin?? What do you think of the clip?? Can you think of another word besides bizarre??
Joaquin Phoenix has claimed that he was leaving acting to reinvent himself as a rapper. But after an unimpressive, somewhat laughable preformance at a Las Vegas club, most thought his jump to hip-hop was a joke.
Joaquin, adamantly denies gameplay.
“There’s not a hoax,” Phoenix tells the Associated Press of doubts about his sudden transformation from movie star to hip-hop artist. “Might I be ridiculous? Might my career in music be laughable? Yeah, that’s possible, but that’s certainly not my intention.”
If Joaquin really is pursuing his passion for music, I feel badly for him that everyone assumed his performance was a hoax, because it was so bad.
I not sure what to believe. I do know, I’m not loving his new look. What do you think hoax or pathic attempt to rap?
Last October, Joaquin Phoenix declared he was giving up his acting career to reinvent himself as a rapper. On Jan. 16, Joaquin made his debut as a rapper at Las Vegas’ Lavo nightclub. While sporting a rather unattractive, unkempt beard he went on stage to preform three rap songs to a bewildered audience. He stumbled off stage less then fifteen minutes later.
At the time, most believed it is a hoax or that he needs to revisit rehab.
Two people close to Joaquin Phoenix tell EW that the actor’s recent attempt to reinvent himself as a rapper is not what it appears to be.
Following the Las Vegas fiasco, Joaquin told a source,
‘It’s a put-on. I’m going to pretend to have a meltdown and change careers, and Casey is going to film it,'”
Though Phoenix’s interest in music is sincere, with this supposed career reboot he is trying to both lampoon pompous actors and punk the media that covers them.
“It’s an art project for him,” says a source. “He’s going full out. He probably has told his reps that he’s quit acting. Joaquin is very smart. This is very conscious. He has a huge degree of control.”
I’m not sure the purpose of Joaquin’s hoax – but it is definitely giving him a lot of attention and publicity. Why do you think he is doing this??
