Joaquin Phoenix Rapping in Las Vegas

Joaquin Phoenix: Crazy or Crazy Talented?

Most of us are worried about Joaquin Phoenix losing it but apparently he has his mind set on being a rapper and he kicked off his debut in Vegas this weekend. Before we saw these videos many said you could not take him seriously as a rapper, and here is his debut as well as an unfortunate post-rap fall offstage. So now that we have more evidence, watch the videos below and discuss — is Joaquin Phoenix crazy or all talent?

Where in the world are his friends and family?? Something is clearly going on. I agree that he can sing, but he just looks like he is on drugs right now and that's scary.

He seems like a pretty funny guy, so this HAS to be a joke... Now if he were to become a singer then that would be cool, he has a great voice. Remember Walk the Line? But this rapping thing is ridiculous! :(

I think it's clear he is pulling off some kind of Spinal Tap-like joke on us all. Casey Affleck's involvement kind of confirms this. He couldn't possibly be this crazy for real!! Could he?

Joaquin...you were so wonderful in Walk the Line. I get you want to do music but this is NOT your genre. Please let this be a joke.

Please let this be a joke rather than a descent into madness.

who are the 187 people who said this was talent. Walk The Line--Pheonix as Cash; that was talent. This? This is pure... lunacy...

I like him a lot but Ive seen many of his VH-1 interviews and he's really like sick with drugs. He was not talking about his movies but frogs on the hair of the reporter and this was way before his retirement news.

I think it's probably a bit of a joke; as Danielle already pointed out, I heard that Casey Affleck was making a documentary about Joaquin breaking into rap. He's obviously terrible; I suspect that he could do better if he "tried" as evidenced by his performance as Cash. Anyway, it's great / funny if we wants to try doing something new. If he's "on something", who knows better than he does the dangers of drugs? Must be rather deliberate on his part.

He seems like he's going through an identity crisis. Joaquin has been acting since he was a kid (see "Parenthood"), so in that sense I don't blame him for wanting to try something different. Unfortunately, it appears his judgement is off when it comes to trying to make a lateral career move in another direction. I am willing to keeping an open mind, but I really don't think this rapper thing is going to pan out for him. I hope he proves us all wrong.
