Charlie Sheen decides that he was not, in fact, "winning"
With the gift of somewhat-sober hindsight and the wisdom of publicists who have reminded him that he has a new TV show to sell, Charlie Sheen has admitted that his behavior during and after his being fired from Two And A Half Men may have been an example of slight arrogance. "Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he's off on some fucking tour—there's nothing 'winning' about any of that," Sheen says in a new interview with Rolling Stone, swooping down like a sheepish F-18 raining modesty bombs on your whole village, bro. Sheen continues, "I mean, how does a guy who's obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial," thus reaching a moment of clarity now that it is potentially more profitable to do so. Unfortunately, this suggests that all the endless attention America paid to a spectacle that has only now been revealed to be an act of pure self-indulgence was nothing but a waste of time. The next one should be better, though.
