Black, White and Dead All Over
Attention scary makeup wearers: The curse may be upon thee. First, Brandon Lee — black and white makeup wearer and star of “The Crow” is accidentally shot in the abdomen and killed when a prop malfunctions on the set. Next, talented young actor Heath Ledger — who’d just wrapped his gig in “The Dark Knight” as a black and white makeup-wearing Joker — is found dead in his apartment of an apparent overdose. Which makes us wonder which makeup wearing celeb might be next to fall prey to this fatal curse. Here are some potential victims, who we’re hoping will take notice of the trend and reconsider their makeup wearing ways.
First Gene Simmons gets axed from “Celebrity Apprentice” and then …?
It’s probably best Alice Cooper is more into golf these days than rock, or else we’d be constantly concerned that his prop guillotine might accidentally malfunction.
This is King of the Nordic death metal band Gorgoroth. He actually kind of likes death.
It’s OK with us if Insane Clown Posse wants to keep wearing their makeup.
Let’s hope King Diamond from Mercyful Fate doesn’t meet his own sooner than expected because of his predilection for face paint.
Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, not be confused with Howard Stern’s Beetlejuice.
We’re not sure we’d want to see Marilyn Manson without makeup, but for the sake of his safety he may want to reconsider his color scheme.
Mr. Bean may be the only mime on Earth we don’t want dead.
