The 5 Most Obviously Drug-Fueled TV Appearances Ever

#4. James Brown on Sonya


Year: 1987
Evidence: His sobriety can be brought into question right off the bat when he answers one of her questions with, "living in America!" When pop stars sing choruses from their own songs completely out of context, they might as well be wearing a sombrero with the words "I'm high" written on it. Exhibit B: the sunglasses. We remember seeing our friend's strung-out uncle wearing a similar pair at high school graduation.
Drug(s) They Were Probably On: PCP, rat poison and wheat grass. And some speed thrown in for measure. Also: pot, percocet, Robitussin and generic uppers. Alcohol? Sure, why not.
