Bret Michaels speaks out about Tonys incident

Poison frontman Bret Michaels has finally spoken about the "headbanging" incident at the Tonys last week, in which he suffered a broken nose and lip lacerations. In his MySpace blog, Michaels writes,  "In hindsight, there is no doubt I got my bell rung, unfortunately it has been posted and perhaps funny to watch, but I can assure you it has been painful to experience."  The singer went on to echo the statements made by his representatives that he had not been told about the moving stage prop or that he had a limited amount of time to clear the stage. "Otherwise believe me I would have stopped or at least ducked so as not to be knocked out at the Tonys."  After his collision with the prop,  My nose, mouth and the back of my head felt numb,  Michaels writes.  "I vaguely remember asking [bodyguard] Big John, 'do I have any teeth left in my mouth?' ...Somebody handed me a towel to wipe the blood from my face and in my dazed state I recall staring at what seemed to be Shrek, a talking goat head and several monkey like creatures." Michaels also thanks Liza Minnelli and "Ugly Betty" star Mark Indelicato for checking on him in the dressing room. He states that he does not think there was any premeditated malice in the incident but called the remarks made by Tonys officials "irresponsible". "First, I thought, 'what mark?' as there was no official mark," Bret writes. "No matter what the situation was the prop should have been stopped or at least slowed for a few more seconds until I cleared the stage ...For God sake, they have at least a five second delay to prevent the airing of unapproved expletives and nudity!" Michaels said that he really regrets having to miss the afterparties, "Cuz rumor has it Anne Hathaway was going to be there and she is hot." He concludes, "I thank the Good Lord I have a thick skull and I have a feeling this may have been my first and final curtain call at the Tonys," signing off as "Broadway Bret Michaels."
