Jamie Foxx Opens Up On Why He Refuses To Meet Jayz, His ‘Forever’ Idol

Oscar winner Jamie Foxx prefers to keep a bit of mystery between himself and those he admires, which is why he refuses to meet JAY-Z.

Foxx told People magazine that he’s “a little in awe of Jay-Z.” And although the two shared a table at Rihanna’s Diamond Ball, which was recently held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York, the two celebrities didn’t exchange pleasantries.

“I like to keep that mystique of him. I don’t ever want to be too close,” the actor and comedian explained. “I keep Jay-Z on a certain level.”

Foxx shared his reluctance to meet the rapper stems from the bond he created with his father, Darrell Bishop, while watching Beyonce’s husband perform.

“I took my father to see Jay-Z, not too long after 9/11… this was our first moment of bonding, and I was like, ‘I’m gonna take you see somebody, pops.’ And we watched that guy, and we had a great moment,” he recalled.


Jay-Z introduces Vic Mensa at Mack Sennett Studios on July 13, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.
