Just a little recap for those of you who may not be following Corey Feldman’s life that closely: A couple weeks ago, Vice’s West Coast Editor (along with last week’s Frotcast guest, Jonathan Daniel Brown) attended Corey Feldman’s birthday party in the valley. The party was free for women, and cost $250 for guys, and the Vice writer was only allowed to cover it if he gave Feldman final edit, which he did. Only Feldman didn’t count on the accompanying pictures telling the whole depressing story, regardless of what the text said. The Vice post was tweeted by everyone from Wil Wheaton to Anthony Bourdain, and once Corey Feldman realized the attention he was getting was negative, he started accusing Vice of slander and defamation and got his fans all riled up to tweet and email the Vice writer about what a mean jerk he was. Crazy, right? Who knew Corey Feldman had fans.
Now, in a novel bit of spin doctoring, Feldman is accusing people of cyber bullying. I don’t think he knows what cyber bullying is. From a recent press release:
Corey Feldman Responds to Cyber Bullying with a Positive Outlook Announcing New Book, Lead Role in Theatrical Movie, [sic]
Corey’s Angels Projects and New Album
(Hollywood, CA) September 3 – Corey Feldman has a lot to celebrate with more than 30 years in the film business, but lately he’s busier than ever with the announcement of a new book, a lead role in a theatrical movie, the upcoming release of his new album and numerous projects with his very own Corey’s Angels brand. [...]
A personal birthday party he also hosted was met with strong criticism online; criticism Feldman strongly feels is cyber bullying.
“Unfortunately, we have grown into a society whose belief system holds to bring down rather than to build up. Bullying is present in schools, homes, professional environments and online (cyber bullying), and here is a case no different from just that. I can take criticism, but what people are saying online as of late is far beyond that,” said Feldman. It takes a lot of balls to put yourself out there in the hot seat, so I encourage everyone to not be afraid of what others will say or think. Move forward and ignore the haters,” he added.
Is one of the haters basic grammar? His PR person writes like a middle schooler writing her first term paper, which got a B-. My hot seat is balls powered, by the way, which is why I’m always burning my balls. But it takes a tough set of balls to keep putting your big balls out there on the hot seat, I always say.
In August this past year, Feldman hosted his second Corey’s Angels Birthday Bash, a successful party despite some of the negative reviews it received.
“You can’t believe everything you read or hear. It’s the age old adage reality vs. setup,” said Feldman. “The Corey’s Angels Birthday Bash was an enormous success, and we’re really excited about our follow up event. Stay tuned,” he added.
“Reality vs. setup” is even less age old than it is an adage. I have to admit, I do kind of enjoy people using words they have no idea how to use. It’s so cute, he’s like a monkey with a stethoscope!
For fans who want to get an in depth look into Feldman’s life and career, his autobiography entitled “Coreography” will be released on October 29th.
Wrapping up October’s triple threat is Feldman’s new movie called “The M Word” directed by Henry Jaglom and also starring Tanna Fredrick, Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Francis Fisher (Titanic). This is Feldman’s first lead in a theatrical US release in over a decade.
As a follow up to Ascension Millennium, Feldman recently released the second single called “Duh” (August 22nd) from his new album titled “Angelic to the Core”, set to be released on October 22nd.
Credit where credit’s due, Feldman and company may suck at using existing words, but they’re brilliant at inventing new ones with “Corey” in them.
In any case, this is why I’ve long advocated against the use of child actors, folks. You see PETA picketing every movie with animals in it. Where are all the protestors worried about that 11-year-old actor who’s going to become a semi-literate, mostly unemployable shithead in 10 years? Priorities, people. We’re going to be inundated with DJs, club promoters, and reality TV stars if this keeps up.
Here’s a sort of music video for that song (video is NSFW-ish). (picture via Twitter).
