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.
