Jamie Foxx Reveals Why Marriage Isn’t For Him & Never Was

"I'm not cookie cutter."

Celebrity News

Academy award-winner Jamie Foxx is one of those celebrities that can do it all! He sings, acts, writes, plays piano and can make a whole room burst into laughter with one joke. With a new book and other projects on the way, he has shown that he has no plans of settling down in his career and apparently his love life. In his book, Act Like You Got Some Sense, the father of two daughters opened up about not wanting to get married and spoke with Daily Pop to provide further insight on his decision.


"I'm not cookie cutter so the 2.5 children, the wood paneling on the station wagon and the cottage, I didn't think that was me," he said.

He continued, "Then when you look at my daughters and their circumstances; growing up, Corrine (older daughter) was like, people are married and that's what they have and my friends but then a lot of those marriages ended up not doing well. As the kids got older, unfortunately we saw the kids get fractured from their families. Us, we actually came together more, so I don't know what that is.

"I just know that it is different, but I know it's a whole lot of love. The pressure of me being married--- they (his daughters) don't even talk about it. I don't think we've had conversations about it. They just love they daddy and I just keep moving."

Jamie has a close knit relationship with his daughters Corinne Foxx, 27, and Annalise Bishop, 13. He and Corrine worked together on the Fox network game show Beat Shazam and teamed up on the short-lived Netflix sitcom Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.

The Just Mercy star briefly dated Corinne's mom Connie Kline in 1993 and had Corrine in 1994. He dated Annalise's mom Kristin Grannis on and off for several years.

While marriage may not be in the future for the "Gold Digger" singer, that hasn't stopped him from dating around.

Jamie has been reportedly linked to Lil Kim, Christina Milian, Eva Marcille and Stacey Dash. The Clueless actress even spoke about their first date during her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show in 2010.

"I did his radio show, The Foxxhole, and after the show he said, 'Do you want to go with me to some parties Sunday night, Oscar night?'" she told Wendy. "I was like, 'Oh, yeah, sure.' And then he texted me and it was for real.

"He sent a car for me and then I picked him up. He wasn't ready though. His family was there. It was all very, very wholesome. A real first [date]."

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
