Jamie Foxx encompasses everything that is style, poise, & confidence in an entertainer. It would be very hard to believe that any celebrity let alone Jamie Foxx would have issues that others could relate to. Foxx has also been one to put others before himself which could make it even more unfathomable.
During a very candid conversation/interview with Howard Stern on his Sirius XM show, Foxx opens up and explains how Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones, Sidney Poitier and many other influencers who admire his work saved his life.
Foxx tells the story of how Oprah sternly gave him the truth about himself and where he was headed:
“You’re blowing it Jamie Foxx.” “All of this gallivanting and all this kind of s**t that’s not what you want to do. I want to take you somewhere to understand the significance of what you’re doing,”
This wouldn’t be the first open hearted gesture Oprah has made in her illustrious career, but this time she saved a fellow symbol for the entertainment community. It’s clear that Foxx has been on an upward climb since his impromptu intervention. Starring in Academy Award winning films and now hosting his very own show “Beat Shazam” which premiered May 25 on FOX.
