"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Charlie Sheen bombed the opening show of his “My Violent Torpedo Of Truth / Defeat Is Not An Option” Tour, at the Fox Theater in unruly Detroit. I would have to say this, everybody knows Detroit can be a tough crowd, so I’m actually even surprised that they considered making Detroit the opening city for a show that clearly lacked the proper preparation. But to me it is no surprise that this show was not well received. Reports state that Charlie seemed very unprepared and unfunny, and was eventually booed off stage.
What people fail to recognize is that Charlie Sheen’s brain is on the fritz and fried. I remember watching interviews with him 10 years ago and thinking to myself “This guy’s mind is not right. He’s done waaay too many drugs” and this was ten years ago. Think about how much damage he’s received to the cranium after an additional decade of decadence and drug induced debauchery. Even Snoop was afraid to show face on this one, and Snoop aint afraid of nuffin !
What people also fail to recognize is that when it comes to Hollywood, Film and Television… You’re really only as good as your scripts, which is written by writers who sit at a desk for hours a day, perfecting single lines, punch lines, and fluidity of dialogue. Guess what… Charlie Sheen hasn’t written a script in his entire life, so don’t be surprised that he was unable to produce the same comic prowess as his episodes of “Two and a Half Men”.
And we know Charlie isn’t surprised, as a matter of fact, he may have even anticipated the move, as the fine print on the back of each ticket let every purchaser beware that no refunds would be given. It seems to me like Charlie’s tour is a little more hype than hoopla. And there’s definitely hype about his sold out tour, as I’m being told by insiders it’s not sold out at all, and in fact many shows are struggling with hundreds of seats left to be filled. Fat chance of that happening after last nights debacle.
Well Charlie, all your years of drug use, woman abuse, Calipornication and arrogance in the Hollywood limelight has caught up to you. It looks like you should’ve listened to what your father had to say back in your “Wall Street” days…
“I don’t go to sleep with no whore and I don’t wake up with no whore… That’s how I live with myself”
Should’ve listened to your father Charlie.
daamnit if the entire West Coast didn’t come out for Snoop’s party to launch Blast from the makers of Colt 45 and Snoop’s new album “Doggumentary” which was released on MySpace earlier this week… Kurupt, Warren G, Too Short, DJ Quik and … wait, hold up !! Paris and Nicky Hilton?
Now if this were to have happened back in the day, Snoop might’ve risked losing some “street cred”… but lucky for him, not only is he a superstar in his own right, but Hip-Hop culture is completely intertwined now with Pop Culture. As a matter of fact, having Paris and Nicky at your Hip-Hop party probably adds to your street cred, cause it shows just how much your music crosses all boundaries.
And boy, was Colt 45 really trying their hardest to sell that “Blast”… They sure did the damn thang… They even brought out 101 Damenations lookin fine and crowdin up the entire sidewalk across Sunset Blvd. outside of Trousdale, where the event was being held.
Outside of the club, DJ Quik gave love to Nate Dogg’s families to the cameras… and in addition to that, it’s lookin like DJ Quik may just be down to work with the kid. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted on that shizz.
Other celebrity guests included Ryan Cabrera, Megan Goode, Chris Evans, and Natasha Henstridge, as well as the always beautiful Ashlan Gorse from E!. You know that chick is tall as fu*k!!
And you know what, it def felt like an old school West Coast Gangsta Rap party since there was like 6 squad cars of sheriffs outside, just itchin and waitin for some whoridaz.
Luckily, there wasn’t one. Keep the peace ladies and gentlemen
btw, u know people have been wondering why Snoop would release his new album on MySpace. Execs were telling the company they need to turn it around or else… I guess this is their first step in heading back into our culture… and they must’ve paid Snoop some major loot $$$
