‘The Hangover’ Funded Mike Tyson’s Drug Habit

Wednesday, August 11 by

The Playlist has alerted us to an interview with Mike Tyson that is as candid as you’d expect from the man who once threatened to "f*ck you until you love him." It all came about when Mike wandered into a Las Vegas radio station unexpectedly after a trip to the dentist. If you’re familiar with David After The Dentist, you know that you’re in for a treat. Here are some of my favorite parts.

On The Hangover:

“I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I’m sorry I’m coming at you guys like this… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success."

On becoming a Vegan:

“I became a Vegan. Vegan is where no animal products. No livestock products. Nothing."

On his slow-transformation to vampirism:

"My personal life is so isolated right now. I don’t go anywhere unless I’m invited." (except for when he wanders into radio stations of course. – Ed.)

And on the arduous task of wiping one’s butt when weighing 350 lbs:

“It was hard to wipe my butt… I was sweating like some kind of guy from a moon project or something."

Awesome. MTV needs to find a way to get him into the "Jersey Shore" house. (ESPN Radio)
