Did Harry Belafonte fall asleep before a TV interview?

Still, online jokesters have had some fun with Harry Belafonte, who seemed to fall asleep while waiting for a satellite interview to begin with a TV station in Bakersfield, Calif.

The singer/performer/activist's representative told TMZ Belafonte was meditating and didn't know the station had cut to him for the interview because his earpiece wasn't working.

Frankly, I wouldn't blame him for catching a few Zs; sparring with the empty heads by satellite is always a tiring business.

Judge for yourself whether he was contemplating the meaning of life or nodding out while waiting for a Rachael Ray clone to check in.
