Mike Tyson reinvented himself – from a feared yet confused and conflicted fighter to a feared, confused, conflicted, but now much more lovable actor. The entertainer credits two things with his comeback.
“Thank God. ‘The Hangover’ did a lot for me, in that perspective,” said Tyson in a phone interview from his Las Vegas home on “The Ralphie Show.” “It opened the doors for me, as far as people that never experienced me in the 80’s or 90’s. It’s a whole different generation of individuals that never experienced my fights.”
The “Punch Out” video game star also attributes his new-found success to staying away from drugs and alcohol.
“I’ve been clean for four years. That’s awesome,” Tyson told me. “Once I overcame that, everything else was easy sailing.”
The Boxing Hall of Famer is currently touring the country with his show, “Undisputed Truth.” What started as a Las Vegas performance has been turned in to a one-man confessional with the help of director Spike Lee and a script written by Tyson’s wife Kiki.
“In Vegas, I had a rock band, I had a vocalist, I had a piano player… it was like a big show,” Tyson explained. “(Spike) cut it down; only me on stage with a prompter, and just music.”
Tyson compares preparing to the show with preparing for a boxing match.
“I’m in shape. I’m running every day, working out,” he said. “You have to be at your best. You have to have good timing. You have to be precise.”
Critics have essentially called his show just that; the Los Angeles Times raving that the performance “is a knockout.” Many reviews note that the stage reveals a softer side to “The Baddest Man on the Planet.” That part of Tyson’s persona could also be heard on the other end of the phone.
“I watched The Undertaker beat (C.M.) Punk, and then I fell asleep,” responded Tyson when I asked if he watched the WWE’s Wrestlemania over the weekend. “Did The Rock win?”
No, Mike. The Rock lost to John Cena. Perhaps “The Hardest Working Man in Showbiz” might be a better fit for Tyson these days.
Tickets for “Undisputed Truth” are available here.

Cher Lloyd is known in the US as a pop princess due to her hit single, “Want U Back.” Judging by that song, you’d never know that Lloyd auditioned for “The X-Factor” in the UK with Keri Hilson’s “Turn My Swag On.”
“This is the time that I want to bring pop and urban right together, and make it work,” Lloyd told “The Ralphie Show.” “I don’t feel that I’m going to be a ‘bubblegum princess’ anymore. That Cher’s gone.”
Lloyd revealed she is currently changing her sound while recording her follow-up to the album Sticks + Stones. Meanwhile the second single from that LP is the track “With Ur Love.”
“It’s a very cheeky song,” the singer remarked. “It’s catchy. I want all the kids to be singing along to it.”
It sounds though as if those catchy songs may be limited on Lloyd’s sophomore effort. The singer is working with different producers this time and may collaborate with more hip hop artists for her new sound. Rapper Juicy J is featured on a remix for “With Ur Love.”
Meanwhile, US ‘X-Factor’ judge Demi Lovato announced that on her new album Demi, she will partner with Cher for the track, “Really Don’t Care.”
