I didn’t watch this whole thing so I’m taking their word for it, but Us magazine says “GI Joe” star Channing Tatum was a male dancer or stripper or whatever the hell they call it for guys back in 1999, and they have the video to prove it.
Then 18, the star — who performed under the alias “Chan Crawford” — approached the troupe’s owner London Steele at a now-defunct Florida nightclub about a job.
“He was shy at first, but he really knew how to work the stage,” Steele tells Us, adding that Tatum lip-synched in the act and earned $50 a night (plus tips) during his year-long stint.
“The women went crazy for him!” Steele added.
People must have been easier to impress back in 1999 because what little of this is I did watch was anything but entertaining. It doesn’t even look like dancing. It looks like someone electrocuted Color Me Badd.
