Actor Fight!: Jamie Foxx Disses Señor Baby Wipes!

I’m not even a big Jamie Foxx fan (love his work though in “Collateral”), but that was HEEEEE-larious. From dissing Terrence’s deliciously fey “plastic” selling album to how Howard plays the same dude over and over. Awesome. Oh, and the smack talking. The Zoot suit diss. The story about Terrence trying to play his guitar at a Fiddy show and wondering why the crowd didn’t respond. If we didn’t invent shit talking, we definitely took it up a notch. I loves it! As Kyle wrote at Don Cheadle, we love you, but we’re beginning our own fanboy campaign: Jamie Foxx as Terrence Howard as War Machine in Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2! (Radio Big Boy, Defamer)

  1. he said the boy’s album went plastic!i looooooooovvvveee Don Cheadle, but i’m having to second guess this, i do think Jamie would be better for Iron Man.

  2. Jamie is a nut…I laughed til I cried through the whole thing. But T shouldn’t have said Jamie’s album was crap, which was what started the whole thing. Now you don’t see hide nor hair of Terrence anywhere, like the boy disappeared into thin air. What’s up with him?

  3. Christina: The “baby wipes” reference comes from an atrocious 2007 interview where Howard critiqued women’s hygiene in Elle Magazine and basically sounded like a misogynistic asshole (or really gay depending on how you read the interview.)Either way, he has women issues. Here’s a snippet from <A HREF="“ REL=”nofollow”>Jezebel.“Toilet paper – and no baby wipes – in the bathroom. If they’re using dry paper, they aren’t washing all of themselves. It’s just unclean. So if I go in a woman’s house and see the toilet paper there, I’ll explain this. And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean.”Classy!He later tried to “clean up” the statement in <A HREF="“ REL=”nofollow”>NY Magazine, but by then, everyone had got the point.Like when you told Elle magazine that you preferred for women to use baby wipes instead of toilet paper. That got a lot of coverage. Was anything misinterpreted there?You know, my views and focus never change. They remain the same, about trying to find a cleaner way to live, and to be safer, you know? And maybe we should be a little more careful about social mores instead of this loose living that everybody’s gotten caught up in. We’ve lost our moral values a little bit. That’s what I was touching on. I believe as an artist, my nature is to speak. Do I think we need to readdress how we clean ourselves? Yeah. It took a long time for soap to catch on. Now everyone uses soap. So let’s be a little more clean, you guys. Let’s not be germophobic, but let’s be clean when we can.So that should explain the nickname.

  4. I saw terrance in Cat and he as compelling but not great. Jamie’s okay in drama, and as a comic he’s a good mimmick, but actor? We are dealing with good, and okay and a bunch of hip hop clowns who get offered roles over trained actors. White folks have everyone from DiCaprio to Gene Hackman and all our actors can do is diss each other on the radio while they fight for crap roles in Tyler Perry and TD Jakes movies? Jesus.

  5. That was crazy!!!!Jamie is still a comedian to me regardless of all his movies,awards, etc…His album is good…It took him to track 8 to get to what I call “grown folk bizness”, no rappers, duets with T-Pain and all that mess. but after 8, its all good.

  6. Jamie is too funny. But in I agree with Terence- on this point only.Many hotels throughout Europe have bidets, alongside the toilets, though the idea is alien to our American sensibilities. This is expected behavior in Muslim/Indian cultures. It is more hygienic. I'm not even talking about anything sexual, but just feeling fresh. Mentally compare using only dry paper towel to wipe your hands with after having eaten something messy, vs being able to use running water; which feels/smells cleaner? For households (apartments etc) without a formal bidet, a discrete/ornate jug or plastic container is kept near the toilet; to take water from the bath room sink to rinse yourself (while seated) after you've completed number(s)1&2After getting use to this, you do feel a bit strange with only using only TP- but I suppose a baby wipe,might be an compromise.Clean bums in 2009!

  7. Thanks Snob for explaining the baby wipes moniker. It used to irritate me that Terrance was married to a white woman but after reading this, maybe he’s not a loss. LOL

  8. sweet HAY-SOOS!!! i was laughing my tail off looking at that. jaimie hadn’t mad me laugh in a LONG time but that was funny. he didn’t have to go there on him playing the same character in every movie. i’d love to see them go head to head in some kind of caged deathmatch.

  9. I saw this somewhere else, and thought Jamie was dead on! FUN-NY!I just came across your blog and LUV it. I thought I was the only one in love with TJ Holmes!!!

  10. I don’t like either “character” as they portray themselves in the media, and haven’t liked Jamie since In Living Color.That said, though Jamie shouldn’t get too cocky, this was funny!I agree with the above commenter who posted that we get a lot of singers/rappers coming into acting, when there are far better/formally trained women and men out there scratching for their break. For that reason, I will support Cheadle over Foxx any day. Cheadle can actually act. For REAL act. Terrence should watch out, remember Tank from The Matrix? Where is he now? Exactly.

  11. Not interested in watching this clip.. I agree with Christopher Chambers' comment by & large. Where is this headed? Does Jamie think that he's Tupac and that Terrence is Biggie? Has ignorant beefing jumpped from the hip-hop world to the acting? Foxx is a boreTM

  12. i second everything christopher chambers said. i saw terrence in Cat and he was just okay — but then again, most film actors can’t do theater, so i didn’t dwell on it. they don’t usually make good music, either — and for some strange reason, so many of them want to.they would never give foxx that role in iron man 2 — he would totally steal the picture. the bottom line is, stop reading your own press, stop ripping on each other, raise the effing bar and make great art.
