Bret Michaels posted pictures on his MySapce of the injuries he suffered last Sunday at the Tony Awards when he went into dumbass mode and walked into a falling stage prop. He also posted a rant (via his publicist) saying something about how he’s not respected as much as Liza Minneli or Dolly Parton. Laff.
“I find it surprising that a Tony spokesperson would brush off this incident with a comment stating ‘Mr. Michaels missed his mark’ with no mention of concern for his condition. If everyone at the Tonys were aware that Bret missed his mark then they should have been aware enough to stop the set piece from hitting him or at least slowed it down until he cleared the stage. I feel had this incident happened to Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton or Elton John the Tonys would have at least issued a letter of concern. Bret has performed live, with Poison or solo, for over 20 years and on a daily basis is around pyro, lasers and a moving light show. He understands that there is always an element of risk in any live performance, but Bret entrusts his safety to the crew whose job it is to make sure the show goes off without a hitch and should any member of the band be in harm’s way that they do not complete the gag. However in this situation Bret was not on his stage but was at the mercy of the Tonys. He was performing on the Tonys stage and had the reasonable expectation that that safety of the artist was a priority and at no time did he do anything over the top or outlandish that would have put himself or others in a dangerous situation.”
Whatever. It doesn’t even look that serious. Bret should stop being a baby. I’ve gotten worse injuries playing touch football with first graders. The press release he gave also said he was dazed when the prop hit him and that the full extent of his injuries won’t be known until the x-rays come back. Full extent of what injuries? All he has is a cut on his nose and the inside of his lip. You’re telling me this is worse than having sex with all those disheveled trannies he brings on his reality show? I think this would actually be a good thing. Now he has a valid excuse to not be sodomized by those things he calls women.
