Is Joaquin Phoenix Rap A Media Stunt?

It was just a few years ago when Joaquin Phoenix was winning golden trophies for his portrayal of Johnny Cash in Walk The Line. Now, either Joaquin has been bitten by the Hollywood crazy bug, or he's one of the slickest media attention grabbing stars out there.

Joaquin, who now looks nothing like he used to, donning a mad crazy beard that makes Grizzly Adams jealous, is considered by many to be the latest pop star gone mad.
Good ol' Grizzly

Watch the videos below as he raps earlier this month in a Vegas nightclub. Most of you have probably seen it, but I am still pretty dumbfounded that it's the same man who did an ingenious Johnny Cash. Especially after Phoenix falls off the stage following his if drunk.

While his friends claim it's all an elaborate hoax, Phoenix swears that he is turning his back on acting to try to reinvent himself as a legitimate and respected rapper.

Check out the videos below and please leave your comments. What do you think he is up to? Is he a hoax? Or is he fo' real?

I think it's probably a mixed bag. Nobody, well....most people.. are not this crazy. He has to know what he is doing to some extent.
