Foxy Brown: Guilty of Assaulting Pedicurists, Liking Free Belts

August 29, 2006 12:31 PM ET

Foxy Brown has been through a lot in the last few years: there was the hearing loss thing, and the infamous nail salon incident in which Brown allegedly assaulted two manicurists after they gave her a pedicure but charged her for a mani-pedi combo (incompetence: it's all around us.) On Monday Brown finally pleaded guilty to the assault charges, but about half an hour after entering her plea, she asked the judge if she could withdraw it, saying she felt rushed. After all, the charges have only been pending since 2004.

Last week Brown was pondering the nerve of those manicurists while retail therapizing at L'Impasse in Greenwich Village, which stayed open an hour past close so the star could browse. When Foxy realized the clerk on duty wasn't going to offer her any free clothes she reportedly shoved two $400 belts into her bag and walked out of the store. "I was going to just call her and tell her to get those f-ing belts back — but I guess I'm pressing charges," the store owner told the New York Post.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
