The Hoff's taking the stage


News reaches me from Popbitch that the legend that is David Hasselhoff is ''turning himself into a stage show. David Hasselhoff: The Musical includes sets inspired by, he says, "Knight Rider and the songs of Teddy Pendergrass"."

''''I am also doing a heart-rending set on my life and the mistakes I have made," says Dave. It sounds like a joke, but the show will be opening later this year in Melbourne. "It'swritten by the same people who wrote Bette Midler's show," he says. Which, in musicals,is apparently good. ''''

Meanwhile in a bizarre showbiz collision he's currently appearing on US talent show 'America's got talent' as a judge, with none other than disgraced tabloid hack Piers Moron.

Dear oh dear, and I thought the late 70s variety show was the bottom of the entertainment abyss.

The man's a legend in Germany apparently. He enjoys superstardom, no.1 albums - didn't know the bugger could sing.

The Daily Mail reports that Hasselhoff was banned from a British Airways flight after turning up drunk yesterday. I say alledgedly and the report goes into greater detail.

Always in the news and yet I know of him for Baywatch/Knightrider neither series was seen much by me. And for some reason he is a pop star in Germany. But not really anywhere else that I know of...

I was going to put pretty much what squil put in message 1. He's a huge star in Germany.

He looks bloody young...what does he take? I need some.
