Corey Feldman Made a Spectacle of Himself on Today Show
Corey Feldman earned himself some press…probably won’t benefit his music career based on the bizarre, abysmal performance he gave on the Today show.
Corey Feldman isn’t nearly as big as he was in his heyday, the 1980s. However, none of that mattered with Feldman delivered one of the weirdest performances EVER on the Today show (The Today show has a concert series that is sponsored by Citi Bank). For whatever ungodly reason, Feldman was invited to perform his single, “Go 4 It.” Apparently, “Go 4 It” appears on his double album, Angelic 2 the Core: Angelic Funkadelic / Angelic Rockadelic. What. A. Flipping. Title!
Angelic 2 the Core
Angelic 2 the Core was released on June 22, 2016. Interestingly, little has been said about the album – very little. On iTunes, it’s a pricey effort, costing $19.99. Even though it’s double that of the standard album and a couple of dollars more than most double-discs, Feldman gives the listeners 22 tracks. But think to yourself, who wants to hear Feldman SING 22 songs? Available to stream on Spotify, Angelic 2 the Core runs 94 minutes.
Angelic 2 the Core isn’t Feldman’s first rodeo – he’s released four other albums. Who let him do so? Now “that is the question!” As far as Angelic 2 the Core, the double LP was funded by an Indie GoGo campaign. Interestingly, Feldman’s campaign aspired to raise $105,000. It ended up raising $14,902… We’ll leave it at that.
“Go 4 It”
Back to the performance! It was nothing short of a disaster – trainwreck to the nth degree. Feldman provided some background on the album and his “band of angels” prior to performing, and it was weird AF from the start. Then, the actual performance begins… Feldman is dancing, attempting to dance, and air playing the piano (?) while the introductory music plays.
Eventually, Feldman begins singing, a choice he definitely should’ve reconsidered. He sounds nothing short of a hot mess. As to what ultimately comes out of his mouth, we still don’t know. Later on, Doc Ice appears out of nowhere, filling in for Snoop Dogg, who appears on the studio version. My question to Snoop Dogg is why did you guest on the original? Snoop has too much “swag” for that – he’s an O.G.! As for Doc Ice… there’s just nothing to say.
Ultimately, Feldman put on a spectacle. Perhaps that was his intentions – he is an actor after all. It did give the long-past-his-prime actor press. Unfortunately, if Feldman really wanted people to buy Angelic 2 the Core, this performance alone was enough to dissuade them. Still, would anyone every REALLY consider buying a Corey Feldman album? Think about it!
Apparently, Feldman took the backlash very hard.
