Jamie Foxx: Secret Feminist

It’s hard to know what to think about Jamie Foxx. First he releases the song, “Blame It” which seems a cautionary tale to women about the effects of alcohol, an unusual subject for hip hop. The video, of course, is mostly getting press not for its content but for the star-studded and in some cases unlikely cameos. Ron Howard? I’m just sayin’.

Still, the song has a message.

Girl what you drinkin, go on let it sink in…
I was unaware how fine you was before my buzz set in

Now there’s this interview.

Foxx tells “Entertainment Tonight” that when he was on the Philadelphia-area set of his new flick, “Law Abiding Citizen,” last week, he was shocked to hear how local women discussed their experiences with domestic violence on a radio talk show about Chris Brown’s disastrous relationship with Rihanna.

“It was disturbing because a lot of the women were like, ‘Maybe I did deserve it, maybe I did bring this on myself,’ ” said the Oscar winner.

“I want to say to all the women in Philly … that’s hurting. No man should ever put their hands on you.”

Who knew Jamie Foxx was such an enlightened advocate for women? Now could someone please get Rhianna on the phone? I think Jamie Foxx needs to have a talk with her.
