LOL WUT: BRET MICHAELS TO MAKE HIS OWN LIFE STORY AS A MOVIE
From a recent piece on Bret Michaels in the The Columbus Dispatch:
One project that [Michaels] has his eye on: a movie about his life, starting with his youth in Pittsburgh, where he overcame his childhood health issues, first picked up a guitar and formed his first bands. It’s a rags-to-riches story — Poison has sold more than 30 million records — but Michaels warns that his story wouldn’t be a standard-issue biopic.
“I want to tell the story,” he says. “Mostly, when you see rock movies, it has to be this over-the-top thing. I want to give people a Bret Michaels movie where they see that my life is a comedy of errors. I also want to show my fans how to get through the kind of troubles that would leave most people flat on the floor.”
A few of my own thoughts on this matter:
First of all, I don’t know why it’s okay to write a book about yourself and not make a movie about yourself — maybe it’s because it costs nothing to write a book, but potentially millions of dollars to make a film — but it’s not okay. It’s just SO ARROGANT to basically come out and say “My story is so awesome!”
Second of all, Bret Michaels seems to have forgotten that he most certainly has been “left flat on the floor” by his troubles in the past:
Third of all, Bret Michaels has made a movie before, and to say it was a terrible would be an insult to terrible movies:
And fourth of all, if they don’t get Sarah Jessica Parker to play C.C. DeVille in this movie, I’m gonna call shenanigans on the whole thing.
