FAME-GAME POST-SHEEN by Elizabeth Searle
“He brings hitting bottom to new heights.”
Of course it’s no surprise that Charlie Sheen ‘wins’ Disgraced Celebrity of Winter, 2011. However one commenter pointed out that true ‘disgrace’ means ‘falling from favor’ and that actually Sheen is capitalizing on his own ‘fall.’
Yes, Sheen has made a second career as a Disgraced Celebrity, commanding headlines with his out-of-control private behavior as he never did for his onscreen performances. Many are calling the late Elizabeth Taylor ‘the last star.’ Certainly the grand old-style Hollywood stars are a vanishing breed and the new stars are making their own rules.
James Franco dares to diss (at least via Twitter graffiti) the mighty Oscars. Lady Gaga and her ilk openly push all bounderies. And yes, former actor and present-day Reality Star Charlie Sheen is leading the way– to what?
Thou Shalt at Least Pretend to be Sorry
Thou Shalt at Least Pretend to Respect Thy Fans and Producers
Thou Shalt Take Thyself Unto Rehab
Thou Shalt At Least Pretend to Agree with Basic Societal Notions of Right & Wrong…
(ie: anti-violence, anti-drug abuse, pro-sobriety, pro-sanity)…
With so many former Celeb. Commandments Sheen-shattered, what will the next wave of Disgraced Celebs have to do to out-Sheen Charlie? The mind reels. Or at least this celebrity-fried mind does. WDYT?
