Chief of the Week: Jamie Foxx

In: Chief of the week

It’s been awhile since our last chief, but there really hasn’t been anybody in the news worth mentioning.  And like I’ve said before, I don’t believe cheating on your wife gets you a nomination.  Didn’t happen for Letterman and Tiger, and it won’t happen for Jesse “how is this my real name” James either.  When you’re rich and recognizable, chicks will be throwing pussy at you from every direction, and if you choose to be an asshole, get married, and then start cheating, then the last thing you want to be is caught.  So no chief status.

There is, however, one person in the news who caught my eye.  His name is Jamie Foxx and his favorite major league relief pitcher is Chadwick Bradford.

WENN - Jamie Foxx has sparked a new satellite radio feud with Howard Stern over comments the shock jock made about “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe.  Foxx attacked his Sirius radio network colleague on his Foxxhole [ed. - sweet name dude] show earlier this week, prompting Stern to take aim at the Oscar winner on his program. The “Ray” star and his crew started the war of words by criticizing Stern and the host’s sidekick Robin Quivers for making comments about Sidibe’s weight during a show last month. One of Foxx’s co-hosts said Quivers “has a lot in common with ‘Precious,’ she was overweight, she was once black.” Foxx, himself, then joined in, stating, “I hope that this feud gets us hot, because Howard hasn’t really made a big splash in a long time.”

His comment enraged Stern, who has fired back, “I’m not… gonna sit here and take it and listen to some bullshit… I’m going to end it now, because, you know what, I got a shitload of stuff on Jamie, which isn’t a lot of fun. Jamie’s not a friend of mine. I’ve had him on the show a couple of times. I don’t consider him a friend anymore… I don’t dislike the guy, he’s a very talented guy.” Stern then poked fun at the name of Foxx’s radio show, joking, “I wonder which hole they’re referring to.”

Last month, Stern said, “She is enormous. Everyone’s pretending she’s a part of show business and she’s never going to be in another movie. She should have gotten the Best Actress Award because she’s never going to have another shot. What movie is she gonna be in?”

“And Oprah’s lying and saying you’re going to have a brilliant career,” replied Robin, refering to Winfrey’s ongoing support of Sidibe. “Oprah’s another liar, a filthy liar,” concluded Stern. “She’s telling an enormous woman the size of a planet that she’s going to have a career.”

Yes, Howard’s remarks were a little harsh, but if we’re judging this scenario from the perspective of who is factually correct and who isn’t, then Stern’s the victor.  But I understand why fans of Sidibe would get somewhat upset.  What actually irks me is the fact that Foxx had to pipe in out of the blue, just to get a few new listeners.  Like Howard talked about this a month ago guy, get over it.  Then there’s the whole Robin Quivers is tight with Howard so she’s somehow transformed into a white woman after all these years comment.  The “Foxxhole” sounds retarded enough in this feud without tossing the race card into the mix.  Get as fired up as you want, but the fact remains that Howard has a point, he said it on the air, and he always speaks his mind – deal with it.  The only way Gabourey Sidibe gets another role is if they make a sequel to Precious, she gets on Celebrity Fit club, or Disney casts her in a remake of Heavyweights.  Oh, so now I’m the asshole.

And what’s the deal with this Precious: Based on the novel Push by Sapphire title being used for this movie?  That has to be a Chad move by the author with the ridiculous pen name, right?  I’m guessing she wouldn’t let them develop her book into a movie without the shoutout included in the official title.  But even if it was instead a generous offer made by the production company as a way to get Sapphire more publicity and cash flow, she still should have turned it down.  Act like you’ve been there before, you know?  If I knew more facts, she might’ve gotten the W today.  But for now, we have Jamie “Eric Marlon Bishop” Foxx, spring’s first official…
