Just because he writes poetry, doesn't mean he's a child. GROW THE HELL UP TMZ! I think you guys are the children!!

There are many accomplished poets -- most of whom are grown men... So shut up before you talk about something you know nothing about.

Stick to Paris' vagina, because that's what you're good at!

This guy went to my high school, I have met him a few times. He has been into poetry for years, I've seen him perform some of his stuff and I think it's really good. Haven't seen him in a few years but it's worth checking out his spot in L.A. if you like live poetry (...anyone?). Make fun if you want, he's a genuine, nice guy who had the chance to make a few bucks as a kid and be famous for a few years. Now he's doing what he loves...sounds alright to me.

He was an Awesome voice actor for the Nickeloden show Avatar: The Last Airbender. As tandeep wrote it is a fantastic show.
But how funny was your camera guy at the end, "what's your name?" haha
