Alexakis In Talks To Take On Tv Lifecoach Role
Singer/songwriter ART ALEXAKIS is in talks to hit TV as a rock 'n' roll lifecoach.
The Everclear frontman, who has been the victim of rape and suffered the loss of his brother to a heroin overdose and an ex-girlfriend to suicide, admits his past experiences have made him a good advice giver - and now TV executives want to tap into that for a new show.
He tells WENN, "One of the things I wanted to do that people have talked to me about is becoming a lifecoach. I've been through a lot of s**t.
"There's people who are talking to me who are interested in doing a show with me. I understand something about celebrities that very few other people do - I know what it feels like to be famous... I know what it's like to live in the fishbowl. Unless you've lived there, you don't know what it's like."
And one of the first people he'd like to help would be jail-bound Lindsay Lohan, even though working with her would be like "juggling a bomb".
He adds, "It's really sad when I see her. I saw pictures of her in court and she's crying and she looked just like a little girl. I'm a daddy and my heart went out to this little girl.
"Her own parents are poisonous people; she needs to break away from these people and she needs to get to work. She does have chops... She should act. If I were her lifecoach, I'd say 'Move somewhere, put up guards and don't let your family anywhere near you and just start working.'"
"She can take measure to bring more normal things to her life - have dinner every night, cook dinner, learn how to cook, take classes. Get into the programme, go to meetings."
