Under the bridge downtown
Is where I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown
I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown
Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown
I gave my life away

Did you think about that song when you heard about this story?

TMZ reports that Zac Efron got his ass kicked on Sunday night under a bridge in downtown LA – not exactly the kind of neighbourhood you’d expect LipGloss to be hanging out in. When the cops showed up, Zac told them that he and his bodyguard had pulled over to wait for a tow truck and a scuffle ensued between them and a group of transients.

Zac ended up getting punched in the face. "It was the hardest I've ever been hit in my life."

The area is notorious for drug dealing and drug using. Efron was in rehab last year. Then he broke his jaw and had to go undercover again for a couple of months. And, well, frankly, I’m not sure they can contain this anymore. Go back to Anthony Kiedis’s Under The Bridge. You know what that song is about right?

What was he doing there when, usually, what he may have been looking for is readily available in safer places in Hollywood? Perhaps his people have cut him off. And he’s going off the grid for his fix.

The child stardom curse… is ruthless. There are few exceptions.
