This week Charlie Sheen is pushing for that cross-over audience — and possibly rapping live onstage.
Today on Mojo in the Morning — an early radio show on 95.5 FM in Detroit — Sheen announced that the rappers Snoop Dogg and Dirt Nasty will join him for at least the first part of his 20-city tour.
But will he rap?
“Depends what kind of mood I’m in,” was Sheen’s response.
That’s not a “no!”
You can listen to the full interview here — it was recorded at 9:30 yesterday evening, probably because Sheen hasn’t been getting out of bed before noon since he lost his regular TV gigs.
His tour, My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option kicks off this Saturday in the Motor City at the Fox theatre. Despite Sheen’s original claim that the first two shows had sold out weeks ago, there are still tickets available, individually through Ticketmaster, and grouped together through secondary sellers.
Nobody knows what he plans to do during the show, and Sheen refused to reveal any clues about it during the interview. One of the few things we do know is that this Detroit woman, selected by Sheen with the help of the Mojo hosts, will sing the national anthem during the Detroit show.
At the end of the interview, Sheen made a reference, once prompted, about working again for Two and a Half Men, although he never mentioned its title or “CBS” for that matter (emphasis mine):
“I’m having a ball, but I’ve told everybody, them included that uh, I’m available. Should anything change, I’m available.
Hey Charlie, are you available? What about that 20-city tour you’re embarking on? He responded similarly to questions about a late-night TV show at Fox: “My balls are in their court,” he quipped.
Sounds a little desperate, and unnecessarily so! Why would Sheen want to go back to the tired sitcom when he has a tour that headlines with Snoop?
