Jamie Foxx says he was booed at Apollo

Empty

NEW YORK -- Is there anything Jamie Foxx can't conquer? His first try at the Apollo, apparently.

The singer-actor-comedian said the first time he tried his stand-up act on the famed stage, he was roundly booed.

Foxx gave up the goods on himself as the New York City theater celebrated its 75th anniversary this week. He says it wasn't about his act -- the audience heard "He's from L.A." and just started booing.

And he says they were quite animated about it: "They booed me in opera," he jokes, and then began singing a "boo" riff.

Foxx didn't get booed offstage at Monday night's celebration, but says it still remains his favorite memory of the place.
