View Full Version : Joaquin Phoenix Has Lost His Shit

Joaquin Phoenix made his musical debut Friday night at Vegas night club LAVO, and surprise! He's a homeless rapper. The Oscar nominee jumped around the stage while performing/smoking for a perplexed crowd who have vowed never to take Ecstacy again. On the sidelines, brother-in-law Casey Affleck filmed the whole thing for a documentary I can only assume will be titled Joaquin Phoenix, Stay the Fuck Away From My Kids.

NOTE: Video of Joaquin "rapping" after the jump along with a clip of him falling off the stage in case anyone thought this was actually a legitimate performance by someone not on heroin.

Following his widely panned three-song debut as a rapper at a Las Vegas nightclub on Jan. 16, two competing theories emerged: Either Phoenix is perpetrating an elaborate Andy Kaufman-style hoax (with an assist from his friend and brother-in-law Casey Affleck, who's ostensibly shooting a documentary about his career transition), or he's truly lost his marbles. The truth, it seems, is closer to the former. "He said, 'It's a put-on. I'm going to pretend to have a meltdown and change careers, and Casey is going to film it,'" says one source who recently worked with Phoenix.
Whatever his motivation or ultimate endgame, don't expect him to break character anytime soon. "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."

Phoenix's Rap Plans Are For Real
28 January 2009 5:30 PM, PST

Joaquin Phoenix's publicist has fired back at reports the actor's rap career is all part of a prank, insisting the Walk The Line star really has big music plans. Pals close to the star told EW.com earlier this week (beg26Jan09) that Phoenix's recent shambolic performance in a Las Vegas nightclub, which was caught on film by brother-in-law Casey Affleck, was all part of an elaborate "art project" hoax.

But his representative, Susan Patricola, insists the actor's rap plans are genuine - and he really has retired from movies to focus on a music career.

She tells MTV News, "He intends on exploring his musical interests, despite speculative, negative or positive reactions."

Oh, that's easy. Your ('your' being the general populace) grandparents and probably your parents love Leno. He's way easier to consume than Letterman and requires way less thought. Especially at 11:30 when most people are ready for bed. Letterman requires paying more attention and his humor is darker.

this is true, especially at the end where dave says something like "Im sorry you couldnt be here tonight" (soo funny btw). But then again, we dont really know what the "character" is, so how do we know he broke out of it?

I think it's definitely a Kaufman-esque hoax for that movie that Casey Affleck is shooting. All of this footage will end up in the "documentary." Letterman is the best in the business at going along with this sort of thing, hell, his show was the platform when Kaufman did the whole pro wrestling bit with Jerry Lawler.

No one will ever do this stuff as well as Andy did, though. Who else could have died of cancer and still have people thinking it was a prank? :)

Towards the end of the Letterman Interview you can see him take off his sunglasses and kinda show Dave his eyes and that he was just playing. At least that's what I took from it.

Phoenix should have walked up on the stage and rapped a little, and then urinate all over himself in a nervous fit. THEN I'd say we got this hoax rolling.
