Phoenix Movie No Hoax!

Joaquin Phoenix shocked and perplexed the world a couple of years ago with his bizarre attempts at becoming a rap star. Many people at the time believed it was some kind of hoax. But now that his documentary is coming out e continues to insist his rap career was no hoax.

Phoenix made an infamous rapping debut where he appeared highly intoxicated and mumbled several raps before falling off the stage, and was seen all around town with a beard out of control. He also made a legendary awkward appearance on David Letterman around this time, where David mocked his apparent mental absence.

Now when the movie debuts we will see once and for all whether he was playing with our heads or not. I still say it was a hoax.

The former Oscar-nominated actor, whose movie with Gwyneth Paltrow, "Two Lovers," will purportedly be his last, says his move into the rap music world is no hoax, as had been speculated in various media reports. "There's not a hoax," Phoenix told The Associated Press. "Might I be ridiculous? Might my career in music be laughable? Yeah, that's possible, but that's certainly not my intention." Phoenix's debut performance in January was less than auspicious: Three barely comprehensible raps concluded by Phoenix falling off the stage.
