Charlie Sheen 'TODAY' Show: If He's Clean, He's Crazy (VIDEOS)

Charlie Sheen on TODAY

Clips from the next interview chronicling the mad descent of actor Charlie Sheen ran earlier today on the TODAY show. In his chat with NBC’s Jeff Rossen, you'll hear Charlie say he is clean and not on drugs. The actor also submitted both blood and urine drug tests to, which also came back clean. However, if this is a clean and sober man, we have some bigger problems.


As you watch Sheen in the interview, you'll see -- drugs or no drugs -- he truly isn't right in the head. At all. He look gaunt, he's wild-eyed, and he may have suffered some hair loss since we saw him last. He looks older, and frankly, he looks and acts mentally ill, which is the biggest worry, of course, if he isn't using his favored drug cocaine.

Watch the interview yourself after the jump.

It's really scary to think Charlie Sheen may have irreparable damage to his brain from all the drug use. Earlier Dr. Drew speculated that he was showing signs of bipolar disorder and mania, flying off to the Bahamas for an orgy with his duo of "goddesses" like he did last week, calling into radio shows and ranting, and so on.

In the new interview, he's delusional to the point of paranoia at times, not to mention agitated and extremely bizarre and irrational. He says things like:

I'm tired of pretending like I'm not special. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not bitchin', a total frickin' rock star from Mars. 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.

I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available because if you try it once you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.

People misinterpret my passion for anger. ... You borrow my brain for five seconds and just be, like, Dude! Can't handle it! Unplug this bastard! Because it fires in a way that is, I don't know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.

On his last bout with cocaine, he says:

I probably took more than anybody could survive ... I was bangin' seven gram rocks and finishing them because that's how I roll. I have one speed, I have one gear: go.

He also calls himself a "warlock," describes his past drug abuse as "magic," says he has "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA," and believes he's not bipolar but "bi-winning."

We looked up bipolar disorder to see if the symptoms match up with what we saw in the interview, and indeed, there were many many similarities. In fact, Charlie Sheen may have displayed all of these symptoms over this past week.

Bipolar Disorder Symptoms:

  • Euphoria
  • Extreme optimism
  • Inflated self-esteem
  • Poor judgment
  • Rapid speech
  • Racing thoughts
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Agitation or irritation
  • Increased physical activity
  • Risky behavior
  • Spending sprees or unwise financial choice
  • Increased drive to perform or achieve goal
  • Increased sex drive
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Careless or dangerous use of drugs or alcohol
  • Frequent absences from work 
  • Delusions or a break from reality (psychosis)
  • Poor performance at work or school

If, on the other hand, Charlie somehow he duped the drug tests he took, maybe we're dealing with a drug-induced psychosis. Either way, things are not good for Charlie Sheen, despite the crazy, delusional ride going on in his brain. This is so incredibly scary to watch.

I was actually sort of enjoying the Charlie Sheen madness—thinking, well, maybe he's just screwing with everyone, riding out a defensive ego trip—until I saw this interview. He looks so, so sick.

What do I think? I think everybody needs to leave him alone and let his family get him the help he so obviously needs.

I watched most of this on gma this morning, and my only thought was "he fried his brain on all the drugs he took".  And what a complete and total A-Hole.  When asked about one of the girls that were there on one of his binges and how the girl expressed concern that she could have overdosed he said "thats not my problem. she was probably taking the wrong stuff".  He is terrifying in this interview, and this interview did not help him one iota.  Even though he did come up totally clean, he has lost his mind.

Pbutt... Pbuttercup0625

Oh and PonyChaser, this is beyond help.  This is what happens when you take too many drugs and fry your brain to the point where it is not fixable.  Help is too late for something like this.  He needed help when he first started using drugs, this is something that can not be fixed.

First of all, he probably isnt clean, any drug addict can pass a piss test. Second, I do not feel for him. He is an abuser of women, and he beats them. Why is it ok for him to beat the snot out of women, threaten to kill them, go on drug binges, etc etc, and people continuelly excuse his behavior, because he is an actor. Yet, not one person gave Lindsey Lohan a chance, they bashed and bashed her and she just did damage to herself. Charlie Sheen needs to be left alone, to get help and not feed into his craziness.

ok, so i watched the first video and omg. he looks and sounds like he is on an extremly manic episode of bi-polar, but than again he could be so fried from drugs or on drugs as billsfan said, drug addicts can pass a piss test. this is scary and i cannot believe his second wife is allowing him to be near their babies when hes like this. its just not safe.

Being a person in recovery I found myself physically repulsed by the evidence of the disease of addiction holding him hostage. I am very sad for him. His thought process is so sick. He is so far from reality and deep in his denial it just makes me sad. I pray he finds his way back before it is too late. It is hard to watch someone slip deeper & deeper into the disease while I know there is a way out to a life of true freedom. AA didn't work for him as he said because the disease still dominates his thought process. God bless him.

Very sad and I don't like how the media is taking advantage of his madness for ratings. He needs help. And as far and recovering, it is possible, many people have recovered from serious drug and alcohol's a lifelong battle but it can be done so it's not fair to write him off just yet...

Pbutt... Pbuttercup0625

Okay, posting for the 3rd time on this one.... 1.) He did a BLOOD TEST AS WELL and PASSED.  2.) He volunteered for this interview, so don't feel bad that the "media is exploiting him" He choose to do this of his own free will. He also seems to think that this interview will help him.  3.) I doubt there is any help for him. His brain is permanently damaged and permanently broken.  My mother is retired from being a nurse at a state hospital where there are convicted criminals who are also mentally ill, and his behavior is text book to what she has seen in there, mostly from the guys who damaged their brains with drugs. He can not work anymore with his brain like this, he needs to be institutionalized.  Stop feeling sorry for him, he did this of his own free will, he is not a victim of anyone or anything. He is permanently crazy.

Also if you actually heard him, he said he is recovered... according to him "I blinked and I cured my brain, that's how. Everybody has the power."  Oh and another favorite quote from him was when asked if he worries about dying from drug binges, he said "Dying's for fools."

Oh yeah, he is a real prince and really right in the head.
