Hollywood star turned singer Joaquin Phoenix is blaming a late film crew for his lackluster music debut after shocking Las Vegas partygoers with a bizarre hip-hop show.The actor unveiled a strange rap act at Sin City club Lavo on Friday night, when he performed three tracks from his forthcoming album, jumping around the stage sporting an overgrown beard and unkempt hair.The Vegas gig was reportedly recorded by Phoenix's brother-in-law, Casey Affleck, for an upcoming documentary tracking the star's new career in the music industry. Joaquin's show fell flat, ending with a very red-faced Phoenix tripping and falling into the crowd. A source tells the New York Post, "He was waiting for Casey Affleck and when the film crew arrived late, Joaquin flipped out."According to the insider, Phoenix yelled at the crew: "Thanks for being late and [bleep] everything up.'" The source adds, "He came back five minutes later and did the sound check. Nobody can tell if he is for real or if this is all a big joke."Phoenix announced his retirement from acting in October.
