Earlier this week, it was announced that both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have quit as “American Idol” judges. It came as a shock to many Idol fans but the shock increased when Nigel Lythgoe (Executive Producer of American Idol) said that he would love to have Charlie Sheen as a judge for next season.
Charlie Sheen! Of all people!
Let’s take a good look at the situation now, shall we?
Charlie Sheen’s (so-called “last gig”) comedy series, “Anger Management” is already recording plummeting ratings. Although notorious Sheen said that he would retire after, things are not looking too good and the show might just be axed prematurely. This is not the first time that he’s losing a gig – the same way he lost his “Two and a Half Men” gig.
As a matter of fact, obvious failure in trying to revive his career after multiple rehab stints has even led to him quitting Twitter just two days ago. His “final” tweet was a photo with a caption that read, “Reach for the stars everyone. dogspeed cadre. c out.”
Uh, we’re not sure what “dogspeed” is – he could’ve meant “godspeed”, right? Was quitting Twitter Charlie Sheen’s way of dealing with anger/failure?
Which begs the question, is American Idol really sure about getting this guy on the show?
