Joaquin Phoenix – Really Wants to be a Rapper

According to this article, Joaquin Phoenix really does want a career in hip-hop. His rep is denying that it is all just a hoax. "The transition from one career to another is never seamless. It should come as no surprise to anyone that Joaquin came from a musical family, in addition to winning a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Johnny Cash," his rep MTV News. "He intends on exploring his musical interests despite speculative, negative or positive reactions."

However, if this was a hoax – would his rep admit it? I think not! Maybe I just really do not want to see Joaquin Phoenix really retire from acting and am in denial of what he is doing now.

Honestly though, I think he is acting right now. He is making this “documentary” with Casey Affleck (his brother-in-law) about his transition to music. Obviously Casey would see (if this were real) that Phoenix is out of it and is horrible as a rapper. He is family and I would hope he would not allow him to be the laughing stock of Hollywood, and perhaps also take him to rehab.

I previously blogged about his recent attempt rapping at LAVO Nightclub in Las Vegas, NV. Phoenix is an awful rapper and he couldn’t remember his lines to his song even. He also is so wasted or high that he falls off the stage at the end. He has also been seen in airports recently being intoxicated as well.

What do you think? Do you believe his rep that it is not a hoax or do you think he could be acting right now?

He's probably acting. But who knows. I agree that he's terrible!

He looks so gross it's scary. He's about ready to join the same ranking as Micky Rourke. Ew!

One people become famous, they believe they can do anything ... sometimes their popularity is so great, they can!

Even when most are better at singing :-)

Personally I think he is serious. I think he just needs to get rid of the bottle and stop doing the drugs. He is well accomplished and I am quite sure he can do anything that he puts his mind to. I just don't think the new 'look' is working for him.
