Gary Busey still seemed a little rattled — more rattled? — on The Tonight Show last night, as Jay Leno asked him about his run-in with Meat Loaf on The Celebrity Apprentice, when the “Bat Out of Hell” singer erupted with a fusillade of profanity because he thought Busey had stolen his paints. “What happened there was Meat Loaf is an incredible stage actor — I don’t know if this is real or put on.”
Busey was a model of Zen calm throughout, except for when he imitated Loaf’s explosion. I still think Meat Loaf got off easy. Sure, he was in Fight Club, but you do not mess with Mr. Joshua and not get burned. Take a look at Busey’s Tonight Show visit below. Were you bummed he didn’t wear his painter’s hat?
