Jamie Foxx: Calls Gabourey Sidibe "The Notorious Precious"

Comments (84)





With Oscar Award season behind her, Gabourey Sidibe is still making headlines.

All the buzz seems to be about her weight, though.

It seems that everyone has been is weighing in on the 'Precious' star's weight and health, causing a whirlwind of comments debating whether or not the topic is hurtful or helpful.

Last week shock jock radio personality Howard Stern cautioned Sidibe to seek help immediately before she encounters future fatal health issues.

And then a weight loss company -- Acai Supply -- has approached the 26-year-old to provide her with a year's worth of their product.

However, Jamie Foxx had a rather unique perspective on the topic. "I hear they're doing the remake [to 'Precious'], it's called The Notorious Precious," the comedian, singer and radio personality joked during a recent appearance on Foxx's Sirius XM radio show 'The Foxxhole.' "Where Gabby does Biggie Smalls with Precious..."

Biggie Smalls, the rapper born Christopher Wallace who also went by the official moniker The Notorious B.I.G., was fatally shot in 1997 following a Los Angeles party. Before his untimely death, the hip hop legend -- discovered by Sean "Diddy" Combs and romantically linked to Lil Kim -- was known to glamorize his oversized stature.

The Academy Award winning star of 'Ray' continued impersonating the roles of Mo'Nique and Sidibe's characters from the Lee Daniels-directed drama, adding Notorious Precious would be produced by Tyler Perry.

While speaking in the tone of "Precious" he continued, "I don't know why you're coming at me like this. I'm trying...I'm trying to live, because...it was all a dream, I use to read Word Up magazine, Salt-N-Pepa..."
