He's Punking Us!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJoaquin Phoenix

wenn2151615345.jpg

We previously mentioned how earlier this month actor turned "rapper" Joaquin Phoenix gave a shiteous performance at a nightclub in Las Vegas.

We also mentioned how Phoenix had been acting like a total diva, bitching at people and even storming off while working on his documentary with Casey Affleck.

Both times we thought, and hoped, he was joking. And, now, as expected, we find out it really might all be a hoax.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that two of Phoenix's friends have come forward to explain the situation.

Says one source who recently worked with Joaquin, "He said, 'It's a put-on. I'm going to pretend to have a meltdown and change careers, and Casey is going to film it."

Though he won't admit to any of it right now.

Says a source, "It's an art project for him. He's going full out. He probably has told his reps that he's quit acting. Joaquin is very smart. This is very conscious. He has a huge degree of control."

This art project sure is lame!

    perez I think you are a punk!



  14. 14

    I doubt it is gonna be lame. I love the Phoenix boys! His beloved brother, River, was my biggest cele-crush growing up in 80s. I knew our little Leaf (who was known to me back then) would grow up to be a crazy guy. I mean in a good way! *wink* Keep it up, Joaquin! Looking forward for your crazy little project coming soon!

    Re: RedWingsFan – lol!



  16. 16

    Um, duh.



  17. 17

    Duh…. of course it's a joke. Love Joaquin, he is so HOT… when he shaves and takes a shower….



  18. 18

    Nope, not buying it. He probably got a smack of reality and decided he better get his act together so now they are going with "awww, just kidding." Get off the drugs and get a clue.



  19. 19

    Bullshit, he read the reviews and foundout people thought his rapping was full of shit, and now is trying to cover up the fact that he was a delusional drugged up basket case. Nice try douche-bag.



  20. 20

    Lame? No! I think it's a brilliant project! Not since Any Kaufman have we seen such creativity. Joaquin rocks. And actually, I thought his rapping was pretty good too.



  21. 21

    what what



  22. 22

    I knew it!!
    it was too funny, as well as sad to be real!



  23. 23

    HAHAHAHAHA IS THAT WHAT DIVAS' DO……THROW A BITCHFEST AND THEN STORM OFF WTF? FUCKING RETARDS!



  24. 24

    HE'S JUST LIKE YOU PEREZ! A NOBODY



  25. 25

    Regardless of whether it's a "joke" or a "project"…it's still not entertaining or intelligent. So what's the point???



  26. 26

    Re: Farts Smell..and I like it! – Dude that pic on your avatar is awesome!What did you eat to get that effect?Was anyone harmed in the taking of that pic?



  27. 27

    Maybe LadY Gaga should say the same thing and that way since she has no talent people will all think is what a big joke.



  28. 28

    Re: RedWingsFan – a few people were but they are ok! the fart fueled formula is a secret though! sorry!

    Re: Frogger – you remind me of someone!



  30. 30

    That man would registered positive on every line of a piss test…. was sad to see him so completely out of it when he announced his retirement… dude clean it up!! REM your bro… you are too talented to piss it all away!! Happiness comes from within not what goes in.



  31. 31

    He really pulled one over on us! It is just to funny. What an ass. No one cares about him besides when he is in a movie.



  32. 32

    " holywood kids makin movies of themself you know they don't give a f… about anybody else"



  33. 33

    lol, he is awesome



  34. 34

    I knew it all along!!!! HILARIOUS! I HEART JOAQUIN FOREVER!!!!

    "Do I have a large frog in my hair? . . . Something's crawling out of my scalp."



  35. 35

    ANYONE STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE HE WAS QUITTING ACTING TO BE A RAP STAR MOST LIKELY BELIEVES ALL THE OTHER GARBAGE POSTED ON THIS SITE. GOES TO SHOW YOU HOW LITTLE PEOPLE USE THEIR BRAINS THESE DAYS. ….PEREZ IS FULL OF SHIT 90 PERCENT OF THE TIME AND THE OTHER 10 PERCENT HE GETS HIS INFO FROM TMZ



  36. 36

    Re: cafehead1

    You can invoke Andy Kaufman all you want, but the reason the movie about his life bombed, is because nobody gives a shit about him. He wasn't funny or clever, his act was based on massive amounts of coke and the only people who thought he was clever were other industry cokeheads. This situation with Mr. Phoenix, if a joke, was about as clever as a kid in class pretending to have an asthma attack to get attention from his teacher. But more likely it was all too real and now he is trying to worm his way out of it after reading on the blogs about what a tool everybody thinks he is.



  37. 37

    Re: Spindoc – YEAH A TWICE OSCAR NOMINATED ACTOR QUITS ACTING TO BE A RAPPER…WITH P DIDDY PRODUCING…AND HIS BEST FRIEND MAKING THE DOCUMENTARY..THAT MAKES SENSE TO YOU, NOT THAT IT WAS A JOKE.
    ARE YOU IN FUCKING 4TH GARDE?



  38. 38

    You forgot to mention his impeccable personal hygene



  39. 39

    I hope this is true. But it's not funny if it is



  40. 40

    Ahhh. I get it. He pretended to quit acting, then he's gonna come back with something big. I knew the whole "rapping" thing wasn't for real, but I wasnt sure where he was going with this. Now, I see.



  41. 41

    Re: BBBoricua – I know me too. Seriously, he SHOULD shave and take a showwer. he would look so much better. Not to mention that he's a great actor.



  42. 42

    It's gonna rule! I will buy any album he makes, if he ever makes one :-°

  46. ??? says – reply to this


    46

    I think his friends were covering for him..i call bullshit.



  47. 47

    Leave it to a cultie



  48. 48

    thank god!



  49. 49

    I think he is hilarious and I am very interested in seeing the ultimate film project (if that is what is developing).

    I think its commendable that he and Casey are exploring new forms of filmmaking. I saw a short environmentalist film Casey made and was impressed. I am sure it will be a fruitful venture.



  50. 50

    This is a lame hoax. He's no andy kaufman.



  51. 51

    Ridiculous. What a jerk.



  52. 52

    i told you so…



  53. 53

    SERIOUSLY PEOPLE?! Come on. I bet the documentary is about the Dumbf*** media and the dumbf***'s who listen and base their life's on it showing them what a pathetic uproar would happen when a public figure falls!!! He's been Fing with them…and us for years!!! He's been my fave since I was a little girl when i first saw Parenthood! Do you know how many people I had to be like "Come on, are you that stupid to believe this!" Fing retards



  54. 54

    This will be a wonderful mockumentary. Joaquin is a wonderful actor, and I'm so glad to learn that this career change and drunken rap/free-styling isn't fo realz. I was slightly worried.



  55. 55

    No fucking kidding it was a joke! People are so fucken guillable….those videos were obviously a joke, when he fell that was so staged (yah music cues right after he falls…) and if you thought about the people involved, Joquain and Casey Affleck…I mean, they aren't lame douchebags like someone like Jared Leto, you know what I mean? If you for once thought the joke was real you're an idiot…



  56. 56

    your lame…… i think it pretty cool



  57. 57

    YOU TOLD THE SECRET! I'm not even excited to see his movie now. Damn it. Now I'll know the ending. What kind of douche friend would let that slip, it obs would take the point out of the project. I really don't care that much, and I probably won't see the movie, but I just feel kinda robbed by this.



  58. 58

    Re: NB Girl

    That's what I'm saying…NO GOOD FRIENDS! I hope he at least knew they were going to tell! I kinda wish they let it go a little longer



  59. 59

    Mr. Phoenix is a brilliant actor. I´m sorry that he chose to make his life so public. I´m not interested in his work anymore.



  60. 60

    Once again THE SOURCES… we all know at this point that YOUR SOURCES are fraudulent…
    ****************************************
    you need to APOLOGIZE to Marcia Cross and her family… what you did was really wrong and disrespectful, you are not a teen to act irresponsible without consequences… MArcia should sue your ass off for you stupid comments!!!
    You make me wanna PUKE PIGGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ****************************************
    While you are on a roll apologize also to Bernie Mac's family… another one of your victims same as C. Applegate!!!



  61. 61

    Joaquin Phoenix is one of my favorite actors and I think it's unfortuneate so many people don't see his genius. He messes with the media because it's funny. It's his hobby I'd say.



  62. 62

    No shit. You were a douche to blow it out of proportion in the first place.

  63. Low says – reply to this


    63

    You know.. IF it's real it's strange … IF it's a joke it's strange.

    It's a lose/lose for him……

    It's all just wierd.



  64. 64

    Good Lord. Thank god it was a hoax. I was starting to get concerned. How the hell did Puffy get involved?



  65. 65

    that is supposed to be funny? i thought it was just boring.



  66. 66

    So lame that you fell for it, huh?



  67. 67

    Oh no!! They shouldn't have told us! It would have been better if they kept the surprise.



  68. 68

    Dude needs to stop smoking the devils lettuce out of his 6 foot bong.



  69. 69

    Suuuuuureeee. A "Hoax"…thats Hollywood for "I'm washed up and I need to re invent myself."



  70. 70

    OK, I usually don't swear when I post a comment but… Joaquin Phoenix: If this is a joke you can just go FUCK yourself… Of all the people in Hollywood that could joke about being on drugs/high/or/whatever/it/is and of strange behaviour, YOU should be the last person to do so because we all know what happened to your brother some years ago. You just have people FUCKING WORRIED about you and I just hope your ART-PROJECT is shit and nobody goes to watch it. I used to have a lot of respect for you as an actor in the past.
    I won't have it anymore.
    (And I hope this post doesn't get deleted).
    FUCK OFF!



  71. 71

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! This is exactly the reaction he's laughing at. dumb f***'s HA! I bet all of this will be what the documentary is about. And if so I WILL BE watching and laughing (in a depressing sort of way) right along with him. He's brilliant. Idiots…



  72. 72

    Can't he get a haircut?



  73. 73

    "It's an art project"? WHY?????? Does he think that this is going to enhance his image or something?
