Jamie Foxx made headlines earlier this week after a seemingly botched National Anthem during Saturday night’s Mayweather versus Pacquiao fight.

Following the performance, social media users criticized the singer for his off key, gospel rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. But according to Foxx, there was a reason for his imperfect vocals.

The singer explained on The Ellen Show that it all came down to his earpiece. “Some people were a little upset with how it went down,” he said, before mimicking how Black people usually sing the National Anthem. “What did happen in the ring, my ears came out. My inner ears.”

He continued,”My inner ears were out and I’m singing with an organ so I can’t hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd. So some of it was a little off. In the arena, it killed. The telecast was a little off.”

Foxx concluded, “But we still love America.”

Yes we do Jamie. And we still love you.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
