Say No to Cee Lo: 5 Musicians Who Should Get Sitcoms Instead

Kanye is an artist very frequently misunderstood. When he compares himself to Hitler in a positive way, when he interrupts award acceptance speeches complaining about the results, when he makes political statements in charity settings, Kanye is just expressing deeper truths which the American public has trouble understanding.

He's a deep poetic soul and people just can't grasp that. What they can grasp is the sitcom. I mean, Charlie Sheen said some deep things that people thought were crazy too, but because he was a sitcom star, people forgave him.

So to better express himself, Kanye needs a sitcom where he can really let loose with the truth in a bite-sized pill form for the American people. I'm imagining him single, living in New York, dating Playboy models and living the high life until... his previously unheard-of aunt drops his six year old niece off on his doorstep. Suddenly Kanye has to deal with all the pressures of being a misunderstood genius along with all the pressures of being a good father figure and role model to a young girl.

2. Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson is a man caught between two worlds. All we see of him is his life as a famous shock-rock superstar. We never see what it must be like to also just be a human being like everyone else, when everyone around him is demanding he perform. How does he balance that life?

More importantly, how does he balance that life when by chance he inherits his long-lost uncle's farm and ends up in a rural town in Georgia? Imagine Manson surrounded by simple farming folks who have never even heard of him, much less seen anyone that dresses like him. It's Green Acres for a new generation!
