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.

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..."
