It's Hard Out There for a Known Eccentric with Dreams of Musical Success to Rival His Film Stardom

Actor and demanding ladies man Terrence Howard is now also a singer, and he's already made a video for his debut single, a soft little number entitled "Sanctuary." Ambitious probably describes the project best, what with the violin strains and delicate French horn blares. At one point, Howard even grabs a maestro's baton and conducts his sound stage full of backing musicians, most of whom are ostensibly much more talented than himself. Weird!

Check it out for yourself and see if you can explain what's up with all the hats.

Fun fact: I'm pretty sure that one time, years ago, when I lived in LA, I got drunk on 40s with the drummer in this video and helped him protect his girlfriend's honor in a minor scuffle with a bunch of meatheads wearing shirts that read, "Show me your tits."

If I had millions of dollars I would do shit like this all the time. I would also have Cord help me get a bunch of scripts from old cop shows and we would just make them again but with us in them.

That sounds so much fun Syndicator! You know he's a hot ass draq queen right? You've seen the footage I'm sure. You guys you play Cagney & Lacey (I'll let the two of you fight it out over who gets to play what role). I do have my opinion in this though, I think Cord would look fabulous as a blonde.

Oh wait! Maybe you could do a remake of Cop Rock!!! You can't more for your money than a musical cop show, I tell you what.

No. 7 ilnazhad says:

"protect his girlfriend's honor"? I really don't like that expression… It's archaic. So *she* loses her honor if she is raped? Those implications, man…

No. 8 Syndicator says:

Haha wow. OK I think we have enough for a cast here. ilnazhad, want to be the captain telling us you don't agree with our methods and that you want this next job done by the book?

No. 9 Chelsea says:

No ilnaz, she just loses for sense of safety and moral justice and ya'know, dull stuff like that. But in a sense, her honor is taken. People don't have enough respect for her as a human being to allow her to decide if she will or will not sleep with someone, and the act of rape would show that. I could probably make this argument better if I wasn't really tired, but in my head it makes sense. Also, getting raped sucks so it really doesn't matter one way or the other about the honor part, what with the vagina invasion

No. 10 lava says:

so the song, vagina invasion aside and what not, i kind of liked. he looked and sounded ridiculous trying to be husky smokey voiced and all. but in his mind light eyes can do whatever the heck they want.

No. 11 ilnazhad says:

Syndicator- I just cannot comprehend how someone can be such an asshole with so little provocation. Sorry I pointed out my opinion on an antiquated expression.

No. 12 vagarious says:

So does he sing about baby wipes? That's all that comes to mind when I hear his name now, about how a person must not be "unclean."

No. 13 Sarah says:

Baby wipes can cause many a gross dirty infection in women. I wonder if he knows that?
