Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx is a well-established actor, stand-up comedian, singer-songwriter, musician, and talk radio host.  He has won many awards for his work such as Grammys, Academy awards, and Golden Globes awards. However, these are facts that you may already know about Mr. Foxx; here are 8 things you may not have known about him!

  1. “Jamie Foxx” is only a stage name! He was born Eric Marlon Bishop on December 13, 1967. He is only known professionally as Jamie Foxx.
  2. He has produced 3 highly Billboard charted albums. These albums were Unpredictable, Best Night of My Life, and Intuition.
  3. Jamie Foxx was adopted! His birth parents were Louise Annette Talley Dixon and Darrell Bishop (who changed his name to Shahid Abdula after converting to Islam). Foxx was adopted shortly after his birth by his mother’s adoptive parents. He has had little to no contact with his birth parents ever since.
  4. He was a natural born comedian. At the age of 8, in only the second grade, Foxx was so talented at telling jokes that his teacher would use his as an incentive for the class’s good behavior. Whenever the class had a good, well-behaved day Foxx would get to tell them jokes.
  5. He was supposed to be a star football player! Foxx played football at his high school, Terrell High School in Terrell Texas, as the star quarterback. He was the first player to pass for more than 1,000 yards and aimed to play for the Dallas Cowboys.
  6. Foxx was charged with battery on police and resisting arrest in 2003! The incident occurred when Foxx resisted arrest by two policemen attempting to remove him and his sister out of the Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans. The pair apparently didn’t show identification when entering the casino and were accused of trespassing and disturbing the peace. Foxx plead no contest and was sentenced to a six month suspended jail term with a two year probation and $1,500 fine. Who knew Jamie had a bad side?!
  7. Jamie Foxx is a fan of TWERKING! To the dismay of many fans, Jamie Foxx held a “twerk-off” amongst his female fans at a Jazz Festival in Miami for a $5,000 reward. Foxx took his role as judge a little seriously, especially when he critiqued one contestant dressed in boxing attire by saying her “outfit doesn’t fit her frame.” He even told one contestant whose twerking moves didn’t seem to be quite ratchet enough that she “obviously went to private school.”             Jamie Foxx

  1. The total disregard that Jaimie, Shaq, D.L., and others have for their biological parents, I hope, will dissipate, at some point in their lives . Who knows, they may need a vital organ that only a parent can provide. And I’m sure that these ostracized parents would not hesitate for an instant, to donate it. That is the nature of a parent, regardless of the relationship with the child.

  2. I adore this talented young man. I am so thankful that he has reconciled with his birth parents. His life might have been totally different had they kept him. God does not make mistakes!! To God be the Glory!!1
