"How Charlie Sheen Is Giving Us What We Want" by Brett Easton Ellis - The Daily Beast
I know, I know, you're starting to get sick of Charlie Sheen stories. This one's different though. It's by American Psycho author Brett Easton Ellis, and it posits that Sheen is not really having a break down, but instead just really, really "gets" celebrity down to its rotting, fraudulent core. Definitely an interesting take, and one I think I agree with myself. Sheen's recent antics are almost Nietzschean to me. He's kind of transcended the plane of normal celebrity behavior and now is rampaging across the land, like some great, blonde*, celebrity-beast.
