Gotta Watch: Sheen's winning ways

He became a Twitter phenom overnight and added the phrases "tiger blood" and "winning" to the cultural lexicon. But the recent obsession with all-things Charlie Sheen couldn't save him from terrible reviews for his stage tour debut. Today's Gotta Watch focuses on how this A-list actor has reinvented himself into an internet sensation thanks to his rants and odd behavior. Watch the recent evolution of Charlie Sheen.

Sheen's losing debut – File this under #notwinning. Detroit fans booed and heckled Charlie Sheen during the opening of his "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour. Even his "tiger blood" couldn't save Sheen from the critical audience. Was it the crack jokes about the Motor City or the circus-like atmosphere that got fans upset? Now you can judge for yourself.

Sheen can't remember his last drug usage – He claimed to cure himself of drug addiction, which is what made Piers Morgan's February interview with Charlie Sheen so intriguing. To up the ante, Sheen brought what he claimed was a recent drug test to prove that he was indeed clean and sober.

Charlie Sheen: The smoking machine – There's probably a metaphor to be made between Charlie Sheen's rampant cigarette use and his showbiz career going up in smoke. We'll let you make that call, but while you're thinking, check out this video of Sheen dragging it out during his many interviews.

    Lost interest in the Charlie Sheen article because this thread is hilarious on its own.

    @RUFFNUTT, you cracked me up with that "admantium rope +1 vs demons"
    @ Satan, funny stuff
    Oh, and a shout out to OcTears. As an Atheist, I loved that line about the easter bunny and tooth fairy.

    Ok now, back to work for me.

    I only got more confirmed that all that boo-ing was staged beforehand by trolls. They did not even allow him to speak out. Trolls were paid to do so. Charlie, hire some cheer leaders to anti-boo the boo-ing trolls. Watch out, Charlie. The crowed in Detroit was manipulated. Do your thing, Charlie. You have gifts. Nobody is telling you are flawless, but nobody is! Amidst what's going on with Fukushima and Lybia, you can bring some smiles to people! Just do it. And heck with "2 and a half men". If the executives do not see the value you are bringing to the show, silly them.

    Someone seem to have left a small child alone with a computer today. Ruggnut or satan or jazz, whatever, we can all see that you are the same person. Log off and let the grownups talk.
