Charlie Sheen gives unsettling interviews, is “on a drug called Charlie Sheen”

So, Charlie Sheen happened.

It’s easy to poke fun at Sheen, given his behavior of late. But the erstwhile star of the now-suspended Two and a Half Men has gone from punchline to something a little more unnerving to watch as he discusses his ongoing personal problems in public. Sheen’s narrative has taken on a somewhat “unmedicated” tone, and he recorded an interview for the Today show yesterday that underscores this point in such a way it seems to no longer be very funny at all.

Sheen has done a few interviews, but the quote below is not out of character with the sort of thing he has been saying:

“I will not believe that if I do something then I have to follow a certain path, because it was written nice,” he said. “It was written for normal people, people that aren’t special. People that don’t have tiger blood, you know, Adonis DNA.”

“I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special,” Sheen continued. “I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitching a total fricking rock star from Mars, and people can’t figure me out; they can’t process me. I don’t expect them to. You can’t process me with a normal brain.”

Sheen also described himself as a “warlock” and stated he believes he should get “at least 3 mil” for every episode of Two and a Half Men he appears in from now on, due to the suffering he has experienced at the hands of the network. In an interview with Good Morning America, Sheen denied the notion that he could be bipolar, suggesting instead that he is “bi-winning.”
