People who know Joaquin Phoenix say his recent decision to quit acting and begin rapping is all part of an elaborate hoax. Joaquin, however, is hell bent on keeping the joke alive. He told the Associated Press:
“There’s not a hoax. Might I be ridiculous? Might my career in music be laughable? Yeah, that’s possible, but that’s certainly not my intention. I had a lot of dudes come up and say, `We really respect you for doing it, putting yourself out there, and going with it. Because I think true hip-hop heads know that it’s hard, it’s going to be a hard transition, and people are going to be lining up just to make fun of me.”
This mockumentary or whatever he’s doing better finish soon. People are going to get tired of watching him jump up and down trying to rhyme. Watching Joaquin rap is like watching a virgin have sex. You feel pity, but that feeling is quickly washed away by the hilarity of the next few minutes.
