Jamie Foxx sits with radio personality Angie Martinez on Power 105.1 in New York City promoting his new CD. In the interview Foxx spoke of how his daughter doesn't approve of him dating younger ladies, meeting Chris Brown with his daughter for the first time, the backlash he received over the Bruce Jenner joke at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and the first time he met the likes of Kanye West, Drake, Diddy, The Neptunes....
Some highlights from the interview:
On his 21-year-old daughter keeping him in check:
“It was this one time where I was dating this girl who was too young a while back,” he admitted. “She was legal, but in her 20s. I’m 40, she’s in her 20s. I kept her away from my daughter and then all of a sudden, she ends up in the house with my daughter. I’m not there to intercede. Then I walk in like ‘Aye, aye.’ She got the little half shirt on.” Foxx says his daughter laid into him.
“My daughter was like, ‘Really dad? I'm on my way to school. Should I drop her off for sixth period?’ It was like that, so I talk about those thing on the album… you're still fly and young, at the same time, you are over 40.”
On meeting Chris Brown's daughter:
Jamie reveals that he's actually mentored Breezy throughout the years and goes on to tell Angie all about how proud he is to see him being a father.
Jamie says he recently met Chris' daughter, Royalty, when Chris walked into his dressing room with the baby girl while he was getting ready to do Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jamie says that when he spotted Chris with his daughter all he said was "there you are Chris Brown!"
On the Bruce Jenner joke:
Jamie says he had decided not to speak about it because he believes that when it comes to comedy, nothing's off limits and it's simply topical.
"I'm never insensitive...I'm not trying to start a war...it's not saying we hate transgender," he says about the controversial jokes. Jamie then goes on to blame the media for blowing things out proportion, saying "it's a new way of selling stories."
