Charlie Sheen may well be outsmarting us all in saying increasingly crazy things in order to keep himself in the news, but that need to have us all pay attention to him is itself an addiction. He’s not seeking fame through good and noble deeds, but seeking it in order to fill an inner void.
Just as he used his star power to lure countless women into his bed. Or used his wealth to buy whatever narcotic it was though could give him the quickest high. Now, he’s found a new means to get high. And the constant attention he craves may well only momentarily serve to fill the emptiness. He may need try something novel to find the necessary excitement.
Another strange way to find validation through attention. Kind of kind a child throwing a tantrum.
One day, people are going to start tiring of Sheen’s shenanigans. Various media outlets will see their ratings drop and stop covering this particular celebrity. And he’ll have to look elsewhere for his latest fix.
FROM THE COMMENTS: Sebastian Shaw offers a sage insight:
Charlie Sheen may very well end up dead from a drug overdose. Hollywood hasn’t helped him at all; in fact, it has hurt him along with the media trying to exploit his weirdness.
