Hello Pot? This is Kettle. You Are Black.

Poor Joaquin Phoenix. Ever since he has announced his enterance into the rap game, no one has taken him seriously or shown a shred of encouragement. Not Letterman, not fans, and certainly not his "Two Lovers" co-star Gwyneth Paltrow who thinks he needs to stop being a sucka MC and start keeping it real. People Magazine reports: "Popular belief is that Phoenix’s saying goodbye to acting and launching a hip-hop career could be an elaborate hoax despite his publicist’s assertions to the contrary. “I think that there might be some other explanation or something going on. I’m not quite sure what, but I can’t believe that he’s really going to quit [acting] forever to become a rapper,” Paltrow told MTV UK during a promotional junket for Two Lovers. “It seems odd.” When asked what advice she has for her costar she replied, “Hmm … maybe to go live in the projects for a few years to get some authenticity, maybe.”
Oh snap! That was kind of harsh. After all, people in fake British accent houses should not throw stones. Then again, Joaquin's whole combative "You just don't like my tight rhymes because you can only think of me as an actor!" attitude is wearing really thin. It's like dude, no. We don't not like your rapping because you're an actor, we don't like it because it's awful and makes us want to puncture our ear drums with a screwdriver. You are not B-Rabbit and this is not 8 mile. You really need to stop.
