Joaquin Phoenix performing at the LAVO is at TMZ!!!!

LOL, TMZ has it up already, which I figure they would get it first…

See the video here:

If Joaquin is serious about becoming a rapper, he needs more lessons and coaching from other profesional rappers big time.

1) He needs to lose the beard, and get a gangsta image.

2) He needs to learn how to dance ’cause you can see that he’s clearly drunk as shit.

3) His rapping sucks and I think his rap career will fail.

In that song he’s rapping sounds like he’s bashing the Academy for not giving him an Oscar win as TMZ described.

The Phoenix was nominated for Gladiator which he never won and he was also nominated for his role as Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line” which he also never won.

Oh my, that’s Joaquin’s image as a rapper? A bushy bearded Allman Bros./Grateful Dead look?

That last pic of Joaquin with a blonde woman, I wonder if he’s dating that woman or she’s just some random fan just partying with him? Probably just a fan.

When the youtube videos of Joaquin at the LAVO start going up, I’ll post ’em, if anybody at the LAVO other than Casey Affleck videotaped him that is.

Report: Joaquin Phoenix to appear at the LAVO nightclub in Las Vegas tonight at 10:00 p.m.

According to reports about Joaquin Phoenix performing in Las Vegas tonight, I googled it and found out where he is appearing. He will be appearing at a nightclub called the LAVO in Las Vegas, start time is 10:00 p.m.

According to this calendar event, Phoenix won’t be performing music, he is just hosting. Maybe Phoenix will rap a little bit at this club just for fun but I think he’ll just speak through the mic. I see that at the LAVO it’s just a DJ night.

So if you live in Las Vegas or near it in Nevada, stop by the LAVO for a meet and greet with Joaquin.

Report: Yo yo yo yo homeboy…a rapping Joaquin Phoenix has a music documentary in the works directed by Casey Affleck!!!

Ever since actor Joaquin Phoenix quit acting in film to start a music career, you wonder what genre of music he is going to perform. With him playing Johnny Cash in “Walk The Line”, we all think he is either going to get into rock and country. Well, I guess we all thought wrong. Joaquin plans to be a rapper. Yes, he wants to become a rap/hip hop artist.

Casey Affleck, who is the real life younger brother of Ben Affleck, will be tracking the career and life of Joaquin Phoenix for a future music documentary film. Phoenix will soon be heading into the studio to work on a rap album to be produced by Sean Combs. Phoenix is scheduled to make his first public live performance as a rapper tonight at a Las Vegas club.

Billboard reports:

Man, what a huge dissapointment. I for one, was hoping he will get into rock or country for his music career, but Joaquin as a rapper? I can’t see that at all. Joaquin to change his hollywood rich man image to a gangsta image? I bet Joaquin has been getting rap coaching by Sean Combs. I didn’t think Joaquin was a big fan of rap/hip hop. Really weird.

Report: “Two Lovers” is to be Joaquin Phoenix’s final film before he’s done with movies for good…

Oh my, 34 year old actor Joaquin Phoenix is really serious about quitting movies, he’s really doing it!!!!

His publicist confirmed that his final film will be “Two Lovers”. “Two Lovers” is a romantic drama film which Joaquin stars with Gwyneth Paltrow. After Joaquin’s finished promoting and marketing that movie, he’s done with acting for good and forever, just like that, he’s finished.

Joaquin became a musician while filming the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line”. Before then, he never played guitar or sang, but he was given guitar lessons and learned to sing through a vocal coach for the film. Joaquin Phoenix is committed to starting a full time music career, making albums and going on world tours, all of it. Joaquin for those who don’t know is the younger brother of child star of the late River Phoenix.

Variety Reports:

I wonder what type of music Joaquin plans on getting into the music business.

Rock or country or a little bit of both? Who knows.

I’m sure we’ll hear more from Joaquin about his future music career of what he wants to do.

This totally sucks though, I don’t like how he’s turning his back on Hollywood. He’s a talented actor, I like him a lot. I think he’s probably getting sick of acting and music would give him more free time for himself.

BREAKING NEWS: Actor Joaquin Phoenix announced he is quitting acting to focus on a music career…

Actor Joaquin Phoenix attended the Paul Newman benefit yesterday and dropped a huge bombshell announcement that shocks the entertainment world of film. Joaquin Phoenix, an actor who is not yet a big name, but he has starred in quite a few major roles such as “Gladiator” (he played Commodus, the main villain), “Ladder 49”, “We Own the Night” and “Walk the Line” is quitting acting in Hollywood films. Yep, you heard that right. Joaquin is done, quitting movies for good. And the man is young, he’s about 35 years old I think? HE’S TOO YOUNG TO RETIRE!

The only reason he is quitting films is that he wants to make it into the music business into a full time music career.

NO! No Joaquin, don’t quit! It’s too soon for you dude!

Joaquin Phoenix is one of my favorite actors. I hope he at least decides to do one more film before hanging it up. He’s a fine actor with great talent.

That movie “Walk the Line” is what probably made him want to move on to music but I can’t blame him. Like I said above, it’s too soon for him to quit and he’s only a young guy. Hope he does one last great film before he hangs it up.

This sucks!

Report: Actor Joaquin Phoenix to release his first music album…

Actor Joaquin Phoenix who starred in movies such as “Walk the Line”, “Ladder 49”, “We Own the Night” etc. is about to begin work on his debut solo album. Actually, Joaquin already did come out with an album which is the “Walk the Line” soundtrack which he sang and played the guitar on all the songs on, but Joaquin wants to write his own songs. Before “Walk the Line”, Joaquin just started lessons and training with singing and playing the guitar for his role as Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line”. Joaquin’s writing partners for the album say that this album could take forever to release ’cause Joaquin is pretty picky with the songs trying to make sure that this album will be a real good one.

Joaquin wanting to put out an album didn’t come as a surprise to me. Since he just became a musician for “Walk the Line”, it is no secret he would become a musician full time.

I thought he sounded pretty good for “Walk the Line” and will be looking forward to his album.
