Joaquin Phoenix on Letterman last night, quick thoughts…

So I watched Joaquin Phoenix on Letterman last night. It was quite interesting. He too admitted this whole thing is a fake, and an act for a documentary movie. Joaquin cleared this all up on why him and Casey Affleck are doing this film. Joaqin explained this movie, “I’m Still Here” is supposed to be like a TV reality show, like what you see in most reality shows on TV these days. Joaquin and Casey’s goal with the film, was that they wanted to trick people that this was real when it isn’t. Joaquin came out on the stage, all clean shaven and haircut like in the picture you see above. Joaquin knows that this rap character is going to give him a beat down and he admits the controversy. He apologized to Letterman for the act, but Letterman said he wasn’t offended and said the whole thing was a lot of fun. Letterman joked that he wants to be paid because he was in the movie for 5 minutes ’cause of the first Letterman appearance with Joaquin.

It seems that Casey and Joaquin agreed to give up this rap gimmick ’cause I guess too many people started to see it was fake. In my opinion, they didn’t need to give it up, they should have kept it going. I thought the whole rap gimmick thing was great comedy. The reason for the apology was that it was a good way to end this whole thing. All of this was scripted like a WWE thing. Joaquin Phoenix did a great job promoting himself as an actor this way. He wasn’t that well known in the past, but now because of this rap gimmick, created controversy, the dude’s even bigger than he was before.

Sometimes controversy, negative backlashes and bad publicity can actually be great. I’m never offended when I get a negative backlash from the public, as I actually love it all. This stuff actually helps promotes you and gets you more well known.

BREAKING NEWS: Casey Affleck finally confesses that the Joaquin Phoenix rap act is a hoax!!!! Woah!!!

Well, well, well, look at what we have here. The public is getting onto to them so much that Casey Affleck, finally gave up and admitted that the, Joaquin Phoenix, insane like personality and rap career is all a hoax. Read the full article, here.

Now that everybody knows that this was all fake all along, Joaquin definitely will appear on Letterman next week as his normal self, (I hope).

If you actually think the music industry will sign Joaquin a record deal for rap music, please. A rap career would have never happened for him anyways.

This was all funny stuff though! It was fun while it lasted! I look forward to seeing, “I’m Still Here”. I knew he wasn’t retiring from movies from day 1.

Thought: My take on this whole Joaquin Phoenix thing…

So Joaquin Phoenix is set to return to David Letterman, next Wednesday night on the 22nd. Will I watch? Yes, definitely. Will Joaquin come out all fully bearded, long haired with sun glasses? I don’t think he will. I’m predicting Joaquin will come out with his own self and just act normal next time. Just to confuse people some more. In the video below, you see Joaquin talking with Miley Cyrus. Joaquin cut off his long hair, clean shaven again and all that. It takes a long time to grow it all back.

So what’s up with his weird personality and why is he being crazy? It’s a gimmick! Kind of like a wrestling character. He’s just doing what ever it takes to promote himself as an actor. To get himself recognized more. Yes, a lot of people are going to hate Joaquin’s gimmick or alter ego, he’ll get a backlash for it. It worked for Andy Kauffman back in his time of day. Andy went from hero to badguy in the entertainment media. I think this whole gimmick Joaquin doing was inspired by Andy Kaufman/Tony Clifton. Notice the similarities between Joaquin’s new gimmick and Tony Clifton?

It’s obvious that Joaquin’s retirement from movies was fake, I’ve been saying it all along. Joaquin kept signing on to new movie roles. He’s got a few up ahead of him.

So what’s with all the confusion with Joaquin possibly retiring from movies to do music? That’s the point of this whole thing. It was made to confuse people on purpose to get people talking. All of this is a ploy to help promote himself as an actor and his possible rap career if he’s serious about that too. I don’t take any of this stuff seriously. I don’t hate him for it, as I think all of this is very comical. I find it all hilarious. What’s even funnier is that people take it seriously, thinking it’s all real.

When Joaquin met with Miley in this video and he’s acting his own self, being normal. There’s your proof right there that his rap thing is all a gimmick.

Reports: More details on Joaquin Phoenix’s rap mockumentary film here…

This blogger at the LA Times revealed more details about Joaquin Phoenix’s rap mockumentary. It is titled, “I’m Still Here: The Lost Year Of Joaquin Phoenix”. In the film shows all the stuff you’ve been seeing in youtube, including the David Letterman appearance…but of course, there is a lot of new footage that haven’t been seen by the public yet. Stuff like Joaquin snorting cocaine, eating pussy with his female publicist, having a bad attitude with people, etc. Lots of crazy stuff. The film even has male nudity, lets hope the film doesn’t show Joaquin actually naked. There’s plenty of controversial footage throughout the movie.

Is Joaquin trying to be the next Andy Kauffman/Sacha Baron Cohen? Seems like he is, but ten times more brutal. I still stand corrected that everything Joaquin is doing, is just an act. A storyline thing ’cause all of this seems to be inspired by Andy Kauffman. It all seems pretty Andy Kauffman like. Joaquin’s new image is very much like Andy Kauffman switching to his Tony Clifton persona, that’s why it seems very similar and where Joaquin got the idea from. Same thing with Sacha Baron Cohen who retired Borat/ Ali G and now he’s Bruno.

Remember that video where Joaquin was sitting with Miley Cyrus teaching him how to vote for this thing on a computer? I remember, Joaquin was back to his normal self, clean shaven and all. So that’s more proof that all this rap stuff is kind of a prank, a comedy thing. He wasn’t acting bizzare in that video, he was being his normal self. Joaquin will be back in movies, he’s not fooling anybody.

Report: Joaquin Phoenix mockumentary coming soon to the big screen???

Well Casey Affleck has completed filming of Joaquin Phoenix’s rap career for a mockumentary film for theatres. The film was already shown privately at the WME headquarters, Harvey Weinstein was there and he saw it too. WME is selling the film to a studio to whoever wants to release it and it will only take a few days to make a deal.

Last year, actor Joaquin Phoenix made a shocking announcement that he was going to retire from Hollywood movies for good, to focus on a rap music career. Everyone was trying to figure out if he was serious or just joking. He was making it look like to be serious but people is still trying to figure him out to this day. He’s been creating a lot of controversy like on the David Letterman appearance, the nightclub performances, etc. He was making it seem like an Andy Kauffman, Weird Al or Sasha Baron Cohen type of comic thing.

So is Joaquin Phoenix really done with movies or what? My thoughts: Nah, I don’t think he’s really retired. I don’t believe it for a second. It’s a work, a storyline type of thing as part of the mockumentary to make it seem realistic. I think Joaquin will get back to playing leading roles in films again after he’s done releasing and promoting this. There’s no way he’s giving up movies. If you think about it, him releasing this movie is kind of a hint, he isn’t really retired. He’s too young for retirement. Joaquin just wants to break into the comedy genre and this is his way of getting into it. He’s mostly seen as a drama and thriller type of actor.

Cool Video: Miley Cyrus teaches Joaquin Phoenix and Liv Tyler to use the TWLOHA website!

Miley Cyrus teaches Joaquin Phoenix and Liv Tyler how to use the TWLOHA website. Notice Joaquin Phoenix is back to his old self again. No beard, no long hippy hair do. He’s not even acting weird and insane. He’s acting pretty serious this time. Wonder how Joaquin’s rap career is going? Or if he’s still doing it?

I’m not accusing Joaquin of being a kid predator or anything like that, but notice how he seems to be into her a little bit. Can’t blame him. It’s Miley Cyrus, sitting right in front of him, so I can’t blame him for going crazy and trying to sit so close to her.
