We have to imagine this happens more than we’ll ever know, but Page 6 delivers this report about of a perfect-for-hidden-camera altercation at the Meatpacking District blackhole-of-assholes Tenjune the other night:
Former NBA star Charles Barkley was relaxing at a table when a blond model approached him “seductively while the song ‘Crazy’ was playing,” our spy giggled. The model “whispered in his ear, ‘Get up and dance, baby – this is your song.’ ” The ditz thought he was Gnarls Barkley, a band comprised of two people – Danger Mouse and Cee-lo. Charles was not impressed.
We bet he was sorta tickled by it, actually. The music is “an interesting mix of rock and rap” after all. Sir Charles could always revert to his NBA nickname “The Round Mound Of Rebound” — but he’s best served going with Charles “Gnarls” Barkley; Round Mounds don’t have models asking them to dance nearly as much as Danger Mice and Cee-Los. Believe that.
