Charlie Sheen, I’ma Let You Finish, But James Brown Had The Greatest Interview Meltdown Of All Time!

While we are all caught up in Charlie Sheen-isms (#TigerBlood, #Winning, #Duh), we have been quick to coin the former Two and a Half Men star’s interview with 20/20 the greatest of all time.

But not so fast! There is one interview that trumps the tragic brilliance of Sheen’s tumbling from his lofty perch and into super celebrity on the verge of monumental malfunction. That interview belongs to a Mr. James Joseph Brown. For all of the mind blowing one-liners that Chuck Sheen gives us, what James Brown pulled off less than a day after being arrested for threatening to beat his wife with a lead pipe is nothing short of surreal.

The Godfather of Soul appeared on Sonya: Live In LA shortly after being released on $15k bond and was completely obliterated by whatever his drug (or drugs) of choice was. With a monster pair of not-quite-dark-enough shades on his face, Brown answered Sonya’s first question about how his troubles began by singing “Living In America.”

From that point on, all hell broke loose. Brown incoherently bumbled, babbled and sang his way through the interview while the reporter somehow managed to keep it together (which may be more shocking than the interview itself). Somehow this interview managed to go on for four side-splitting minutes without either James or the reporter breaking.

Take a look and see for yourself.
