DMX, the Lindsay Lohan of hip-hop whose messiness has far superseded his art in terms of the current attention he courts, brought his erratic brand of emotional splattering to a 90-minute episode of the OWN series Iyanla Fix My Life last night. Though he spoke as if he had mainlined coke into his larynx, he denied being high to self-help guru Iyanla Vanzant. Her main objective was to reunite him with his son Xavier, to whom he had not spoken in a year and a half. Over the course of their discussion about DMX's infidelity and substance abuse, X repeatedly lashed out at Vanzant, referring to her as "lady" and "bitch." He apologized only to freak out at her again, and her reciprocal smackdown was, in a word, cathartic.
