Joaquin Phoenix Atlanta rap gig not actually happening

PasteawkwardPasteLenny's Bar

A call to Lenny's found a somewhat good-humored (for now) employee who said he'd been fielding calls all day about Phoenix. While he said he'd been off for a few weeks and wasn't in the know, he did coyly suggest that, "If Phoenix does show up, he might not even be performing. He might just be watching the act. That happened awhile ago with Fantasia."
