The hands-down highlight of Jamie Foxx’s appearance on David Letterman’s show last night was his discussion of Prince‘s concert at Madison Square Garden last weekend. “It was the vintage Prince!” said Foxx, who brought his 16-year-old daughter to the show.
“I’ve seen Prince a lotta times and sometimes he’ll go into himself and start singing about scriptures and stuff like that,” he laughed, imitating Prince reading a Bible passage and then squealing. “But this time, he came out and went straight into [‘Let’s Go Crazy’]. I was like a little schoolgirl, singing all the songs — to see a grown man singing ‘Raspberry Beret’ at the top of his lungs?”
Later in the show, Foxx and his daughter joined Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell and others dancing onstage during “Kiss,” and they met Prince backstage after the show.
“He had, like, a shawl on,” Foxx said. “He’s the only guy that can get away with that: To be able to rock a shawl as a grown man? That’s amazing!”
Foxx also performed “Yep Dat’s Me,” from his new LP Best Night of My Life. (Watch below.)
