Everywhere You Go, Jamie Foxx Is There With You

Jamie Foxx is exhausting. And not just in the trying-to-sit-through-Booty-Call way, either.

Foxx was in town for the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational, in theory. It’s more like he was in town for an extensive concert engagement when a charity golf tournament just happened to break out.

After the athletes and celebrities came off the links at Shadow Creek on April 1, Foxx led the charge in a private fundraising gala that also featured performances from the JabbaWockeeZ and Boyz II Men with a set that saw him stop the show to pose for a camera-phone picture—and tell the photog to “Tweet that”—before launching back into his songs.

He did the Dougie with Anthony Anderson, filmed Shanice singing to husband Flex Alexander, had a sing-off with Boyz II Men’s Wanya and Nathan Morris, and brought Spike Lee, Hill Harper and others onstage to dance to “Blame It (On the Alcohol).”

From there, he swung over to Haze to do another two-and-a-half-hour set, this time sharing a stage with the once and future Carlton, Alfonso Ribeiro. Christopher Reid—the high-top fade champion Kid of duo Kid ’n Play—joined Foxx on “Gold Digger.” With Ribeiro and Reid in the same building at the same time, this officially became the most ’90s moment since Mayim Bialik was tragically killed in an avalanche of unsold Blossom DVDs.

That was all just April 1, mind. The next day Foxx spent time at Liquid, and still did another nearly two-hour set at the Tao Beach grand opening, where he got Gabrielle Union and Garcelle Beauvais onstage with him and had the crowd salute the fallen Nate Dogg.

After all that, Foxx turned up at Tao that evening. Because this was a relaxing trip, he didn’t bother hiking Red Rock Canyon, rappelling down the Stratosphere and single-handedly completing Fontainebleau, too.

The Art of Nightlife

I’m spoiled. I’ve become pretty accustomed over the last seven or so years to seeing clubs before others do. It’s part of the job, it’s a privilege, and I take it seriously. So even when a space has a past, I try always to approach it with a fresh pair of eyes.
