I Told You That Bitch Crazy

The Tom Cruise Freakout Meter hit a high water mark this morning, reaching Level Seven: Yelling At A Well-Liked Morning Show Host. At this pace, he'll be at Level Ten ("Defecating On The Red Carpet") by the 4th of July. Let's hope he saves Level Sixteen ("Feasting On The Brains Of His Vanquished Foes") for Oscar season.

Seems in the midst of a "Today" show interview with Matt Lauer, repeated questions about Scientology and Cruise's views on psychiatry sent Tom into L. Ron Hubbard mode. The "L," it seems, stands for "Lecture."

A few gems (courtesy of Gawker):

"Yeah but you don’t understand the history of these drugs. And if you do, you know that it masks the problem. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance!"

"You don’t even know what Ritalin is! If you read the papers on how they came up with the drug, the dosage… You should be more responsible in knowing what it is. I am responsible. I know these things."

Cruise also, according to the AP, called Lauer "glib." And at that point, "you're glib" replaced "you're a jerk" in my pantheon of legendary Tom Cruise put-downs. Next week, look for "you're a pest" to rocket up the charts on the back of Cruise's increasing insanity. Which is totally not a chemical imbalance, because there is no such thing as a chemical imbalance.

Still, the red carpet loaf pinching could be part of an extended birthday celebration for the guy.
