Is this the cover for Relapse 2 to be released later this year? Was this Eminem last Halloween in a weird ode to the Heath Ledger's Joker and a combo thrown in of Hugh Hefner and a pirate sword for good measure?
Or maybe he is a new member of the Insane Clown Posse. Uhoh.
Eminem had this message under the photo:
A world so dark, a world so cold... The devil only knows. It's Friday, the 19th.
I wonder if it is a hint that Relapse 2 will be released on June 19th? We will see.
What we do know is that Eminem's new CD Relapse offically drops today. It was leaked online weeks ago and has had some pretty disparaging reviews although the fans have stood by it so far.
What we do know is that Eminem is performing 2 more nights on Jimmy Kimmel soon and is throwing a free concert in his hometown of Detroit.
Others may say it's cheap promotion? Me? I don't care and it comes off as promotion and very charitable. Last time I checked, that was pretty cool. I am sure even the ICP would agree.-Dr.FB
Update: Just spoke with a friend from Interscope and Relapse 2 is scheduled for later this year. Much later. Think November/December. Just wanted to keep the Shadyheads in the loop.
Madonna hasn't gone off the deep end this time so everyone chill.
Madonna & her boytoy Jesus along with Seinfeld's wife attended a costume party at the Kabbalah center in New York last night. It was the Jewish celebration of Purim last night.
Did she raid Lourdes's closet? Because some of those clothes I swear I have seen her in. Jesus as the Joker. Oh boy. We are all in trouble.
To top it all off, out of nowhere is Jessica Seinfeld being escorted by Jesus. I mean, "what's the deal with that?" -Dr.FB
January 22nd, 2008 in New York, Heath Ledger died. He died of an apparent overdose. The movie industry, movie fans, and fans of the actor were in shock. His loved ones in disbelief.
You know when you heard his name as the one who had died, your mouth dropped. You did a double take. Your first thought after the shock; he was so young. Sleeping pills did him in. Sleeping pills.
He admitted in interviews that he was having a rough time sleeping after playing the villain Joker in the latest Batman movie, the Dark Knight. One pill, which should knock you out for 8 hours, would knock him out for 90 minutes. So he would take several instead of understanding his body became immune to the pills shortly after taking them.
The Dark Knight movie seemed cursed from the get go. A stuntman died the 1st week of shooting. Another death happened. Then Heath's after filming. Then Morgan Freeman escaped death in the south. The weekend of the movie, Christian Balle's estranged family came after him. Crazy. Maybe Johnny Depp may want to rethink that Riddler character.
Heath Ledger jumped on the screen in 1999's Ten Things I Hate About You. Having modest success with movies such as A Knight's Tale, he took on the role of a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain. Not getting the Oscar and jokes behind his back, Heath stood out in a role that would have been taboo and untouchable years prior, but he took the role which gained him respect.
After agreeing to take the Joker role, some questioned his acting ability to do that and how could a person who played a gay cowboy play that role. Leaks of Heath dressed in Joker garb dispelled most of that talk and had people going, wow, he is actually going to pull this off. It is a shame that Heath did not live to see how respected his version of the Joker is. How respected he is.
I must reiterate; If Heath does not only get nominated for an Oscar, and if he does not win it, the Academy Awards in many industry insiders eyes, will now be deemed as useless. Think of it as giving Denzel the Oscar for Training Day instead of the countless other movie roles he owned over the years. Why so serious? Because Heath Ledger was the Best in movies of 2008.-Dr.FB
