Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan, Tiger Woods, Britney Spears. The list goes on for infamous celebrity meltdowns that seem to take control of headlines. My theory for the fascination with them is that people love to see other people's drama/issues because it makes us feel better about ourselves and seem more normal. And makes people laugh. I wonder who the next one will be once everyone gets bored with Charlie Sheen. Probably someone who needs the publicity for a career boost.
Speaking of Charlie Sheen, his Live tour called "Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option," sold out in just a few minutes in Detroit and Chicago. He doesn't seem so crazy after all, people are eating it up. I'm not convinced he is crazy or on drugs, at least not all the time. He definitely knows what he's doing and how to milk this. He's also getting paid for certain things that are used as ads that he posts on his twitter in between the crazy/funny stuff.
