Miley Cyrus triumphantly returns to Twitter, thanks to Charlie Sheen

Who says the big guy in the sky isn’t looking out for us? Let’s welcome Miley Cyrus — the prodigal social networker — back to the Twitterverse after her year-and-a-half absence from the realm of 140-character wisdom.

“I’m not gonna lie,” Cyrus promised in one of her inaugural tweets. “I came back to twitter for 2 reasons. My fans and to follow @charliesheen #winning.” Obviously, Miley has been away from Twitter for too long, because she misspelled “4” as “for” and forgot that people thankfully stopped saying “not gonna lie” in late 2010. But let’s go easy on her — we don’t want to scare her off again.  READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen tickets sink further after Detroit show

Charlie Sheen gets it. He knows the score. And even if the first show of his Torpedo of Truth tour was a historic debacle, he still spoke some truths. Like when the Detroit crowd first started booing him, he yelled, “I already got your money, dude,” and later added, “You paid your hard-earned money without knowing what this show was about.”

Some fans — or curiosity seekers — seem to have heard Sheen’s message loud and clear. And as a result, a significant number has dumped their tickets into the secondary ticket market. READ FULL STORY

Rob Lowe spills on Charlie Sheen and the Brat Pack in 'Vanity Fair'

Rob Lowe gives a taste of his upcoming autobiography in the new issue of Vanity Fair, including his reminiscences of his early days in Hollywood palling around with Charlie Sheen and Tom Cruise. “We competed to see who could play harder, then show up for work and still kick a–,” Lowe says of his hard-partying youth. So, who played harder: him or Sheen? “Charlie by a nose.”

In Lowe’s book, the actor writes that in their younger days in Malibu, Sheen was “one of a kind … a Polo preppy clotheshorse in a world of O.P. shorts and surf t-shirts” and “a wonderful mix of nerd … and rebel.” “At my house we are still saving money by not buying desserts,” comparing his life to the Sheens who lived nearby. “At Charlie’s house, it’s never-ending Häagen-Dazs, brand-new BMWs, a lagoon pool with underwater tunnels, and a lit, professional-grade basketball half-court.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen 'sold-out' tix plummet on online exchanges

Charlie Sheen tweeted two weeks ago that the first two concerts from his Violent Torpedo of Truth tour sold out, reportedly in 18 minutes, but five days before the first show in Detroit, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Not only are tickets are still available on Ticketmaster, but the secondary ticket market, which includes online ticket exchanges like Stubhub.com and TicketNetwork.com, has been inundated with unwanted tickets often going for less than face value.

More than 1,250 seats are available on Stubhub.com for Saturday’s show at Detroit’s Fox Theatre, a venue that seats 5,000. That’s a quarter of the house’s seats still up for grabs, which might explain a resell price of as low as $21, less than half the face value of some tickets. “[The high resell percentage] is certainly more than we typically see,” says Joellen Ferrer, public relations manager for Stubhub. “It seems like there were some buyers who were overly optimistic about the market for Sheen tickets; the supply has definitely outpaced demand.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen kisses Jimmy Kimmel on his very moist lips

Last night a Charlie Sheen tornado ripped through the Jimmy Kimmel Live set during a segment with Mark Cuban. The… actor? performer? let’s just say “self-promoting celebrity subject of international intrigue” stormed out to uproarious cheering, hugged Cuban, gave Kimmel a big sloppy kiss on the mouth, then tossed t-shirts to the audience emblazoned with various Sheenian slogans, like the kitty-cat “Tiger Blood” shirt, and a Sheen portrait with “winning” written underneath (Cuban grabbed one of those for himself). Then, after giving Kimmel a coffee mug with pictures of cartoon foxes pasted onto it, the warlock was off again. “I have a show to write, dammit!” he told the disappointed crowd.

Heck knows what’s gonna happen to this guy’s career after all this insanity. But it sure seemed like he had that Kimmel crowd eating out of his hand last night. Video below. READ FULL STORY

Martin Sheen on Charlie Sheen: 'Emotionally, he still is [a kid].'

Martin Sheen and his eldest son, Emilio Estevez, picked a complicated time to promote their film, The Way, the story of a man (Sheen) who embarks on an arduous pilgrimage in order to mourn and better understand his estranged son (Estevez). The former Brat-Pack idol wrote, directed, and co-stars in the film, but the personal story of a father and his son lends itself all too easy to journalists’ questions about that other Sheen, the embattled and increasingly erratic former Two and a Half Men star. Martin Sheen was generally sympathetic to his son’s plight in a recent interview to the London Telegraph, saying, “I know what hell he’s living in. I’ve had psychotic episodes in public. One of them was on camera — the opening scene of Apocalypse Now. So I know what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that’s the most difficult thing. You have to have courage.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen For President? Ten reasons why it's not the worst idea ever

Charlie Sheen is an incredibly wealthy narcissist with a rapacious sexual appetite and a gift for saying incredibly memorable things that actually mean nothing at all. In short, he is the very model of the modern American politician. Which explains why, in a study undertaken by Public Policy Polling, independent voters say that they would support Charlie Sheen for President over ex-Governor Sarah Palin by a margin of 41 to 36. Sheen also tests well as everyone’s favorite anti-candidate, with Republicans favoring him 37-28 over President Obama and Democrats giving him a 44-24 edge over Palin. (So basically, the American political system has failed. Or maybe we just live in the most sarcastic nation in the world.) READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen adds tour dates, invites fans to 'follow his lead'

What started out as two curious showdates in the midwest is now a legitimate tour. Charlie Sheen has now scheduled 20 shows as part of his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option Tour that will take him across the continent, from New York to San Francisco. And as Sheen proudly announced on Twitter, his shows are selling out. But what exactly is the show? Will it simply be a live version of Sheen’s pained and panned webcast? Who knows? Sheen’s promotional pitch is nothing but enigmatic: “Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?! This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it. I dare you to keep up with me.” READ FULL STORY

FunnyOrDie exec says Charlie Sheen video shoot was 'more like going to your neighbor's house than going to a circus'

sheen-funny-or-die

Less than 24 hours. That’s how long it took the FunnyOrDie crew to shoot, complete, and post its “Charlie Sheen’s Winning Recipes” video from the moment its 10-man crew rolled up at Charlie Sheen’s house on Wednesday morning. The comedy website’s president of production, Mike Farah, tells EW that his team was eager to work with Sheen on something original. “He’d done his own web stuff, but he hadn’t done any sort of scripted comedy piece since this whole thing began,” says Farah. “We wanted to be the first ones out of the gate.” READ FULL STORY

Chef Charlie Sheen on FunnyorDie: 'I don't cook food, I will it'

At this stage of the game, there’s plenty that could be said about the concept of Charlie Sheen appearing in a video for Funny or Die. But in contrast to his unsettling TV and web appearances of the last few weeks, this version of Charlie Sheen is funny — in a Chuck Norris-is-awesome kinda way — and the best evidence yet that he’s simply playing with our heads. In the video, Sheen dons what appears to be a Cincinnati Bengals chef’s hat (Tiger blood, duh!) and shares his Winning Recipes: “I don’t cook food. I will it.” READ FULL STORY
