Joaquin Phoenix's Music Career is a Hoax

Posted: January 28th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Joaquin PhoenixSubmit Comment
Since the first second that Joaquin Phoenix revealed that he would be quitting acting to focus on his music career, it was pretty obvious that it was some sort of a joke. Even the reporter that first interviewed Phoenix didn't believe it.

Then we heard the terrible rapping and found out that brother-in-law Casey Affleck would be documenting the entire journey. Why would you document something when you're done with movies?

Entertainment Weekly is now reporting that two people close to the actor are saying that Phoenix is trying to create an Andy Kaufman-style hoax. The idea is to make fun of actors who take themselves too seriously and the media that follows their every move.

One source quoted Phoenix as saying "It's a put-on. I'm going to pretend to have a meltdown and change careers, and Casey is going to film it."

And it seems that Phoenix will not be breaking character anytime soon. "It's an art project for him," EW quoted a source as saying. "He's going full out. He probably has told his reps that he's quit acting. Joaquin ... has a huge degree of control."

joaquin is a hoax f*ck, to quote a line from Walk Hard "The Wrong Kid Died!"

By revealing the hoax, he's missing one key point that Andy Kaufman was famous for. It's not funny now that we know it's a hoax, and the joke isn't on anyone. They just ruined the joke by explaining it. Way to go, Joaquin.

Yeah, Kaufman has that idea down solid. Letting the cat out of the bag so early killed this joint.
