Every now and then, there would be a glimpse, a glimmer, that Charlie Sheen’s shenanigans of the past weeks might have been some kind of wacky form of performance art. That Charlie Sheen was doing what his chosen career taught him to do,to act.
Could he just have put on his “crazy” show to manipulate the media and do things like get 2,000,000 Twitter followers in just a matter of days? To become a household name? To become even more famous and infamous than he was before? In a new radio interview Charlie Sheen discussed his hijinx saying:
“You have to sort of go into performance art,” continuing the topic saying, “It wasn’t like I was really believing that if you, it’s a drug called Charlie Sheen, if you take it your face will melt off and you’ll weep over your exploded body!”
“You just prepare for it because you know its coming because they’re [media] transparent and predictable. It’s a skill set you don’t worry about encountering. You can dismiss it with the illusion that there’s some measure of compassion behind the answer,” Sheen said.
He added that, “It’s a fake engage. It’s a fen-gage.”
It sounds like he just wanted to shake things up. Saying “It’s about all those b**ching words sounding cool all put together. It’s about shock value, its just about not having any interest in speaking like everybody else. It’s just boring,” Sheen said. Enter phrases like “tiger blood” and “Adonis DNA.”
And he is pretty proud of his work and how the media feels about him saying, “They love me, they just love me. It’s a big, warm hug. It’s like a nude Jacuzzi,” he sarcastically joked.
Or is this just showing the more calm side of his bi-polar winning? And is this, all just another act?
