A great David Letterman segment last night with Joaquin Phoenix, who’s still trying to convince us he’s given up acting for rapping. Phoenix might just be our next great comic genius.
Joaquin Phoenix exited his career as an actor last year, hoping to join the ranks of successful white rappers like Eminem and, umm, Eminem. He made his debut appearance as a “rapper” Friday at a Las Vegas club, and, based on this evidence, I’m not exactly sure there’s going to be a market for what he’s selling. Or maybe he’s on some kind of surreal, brilliant Andy Kaufman-like comic trip….
Oh, and he fell off the stage, too.
I’m so confused.
