Beyonce, Chris Bosh, and Three Other Secret Celebrity Juggalos
The Insane Clown Posse is the most successful DIY b(r)and in the history of independent music. They move merch like bona fide hustlers, tour like Black Flag in the '80s and serve as the centerpiece of a million-dollar Dark Carnival of spin-off artists and related projects, not to mention the annual, constantly expanding Gathering of the Juggalos.
Along the way, I.C.P. has assembled a stable of mainstream celebrities as Dark Carnies. Up to now the allegiances have been predictable: Vanilla Ice has been a nu-metal bro -- a mainstream cousin of the Juggalo -- for some time. And everyone knows Ice Cube will do anything for a buck.
But Charlie Sheen's declaration that he's so down with the clown that he'll be MCing this summer's Gathering got Crossfade wondering: Who else is a secret celebrity juggalo?
We know Beyonce's hubby Jay-Z dabbles in the doings of the Illuminati, so it's safe to assume that hip-hop's royal couple appreciate the camaraderie of secret societies. Plus, Beyonce could bring a little class to the celebrity Juggalo circuit. We all remember what happened to Tila Tequila at last year's Gathering, but that was Tila Tequila. This is Beyonce. Queen Bee could instill young Jugalettes with some 21st-century girl power.
4. Chris Bosh
There was a lot of talk this past season about whether Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh was living up to his Big Three hype. Not to mention the off-the-court talk surrounding LeBron and Wade's disdain for their teammate. Well, what the Miami Heat doesn't want you to know is that Chris Bosh will "always have the Juggalos [and he'll] never give a second to them other hoes."
Juggalo drag queens are the true final frontier. In fact, RuPaul should run for President in 2012 with Violent Jay and Shaggy2Dope as joint VPs. Can you imagine To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar if Swayze, Snipes and Leguizamo were voguing Juggalos?
2. Steve Aoki
Steve Aoki sprays naked women with a champagne firehose almost nightly. But deep down, he wishes it was Faygo.
1. Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Even though Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Crossfade's favorite Supreme Court Justice, we nearly defriended her for constantly tweeting about how excited she is for this year's Gathering of the Juggalos, especially because Mick Foley is going to be there and Cactus Jack was her favorite wrestler.
