*Jamie Foxx says he was inspired to write the title track of his upcoming album “Hollywood” by an ex-girlfriend and her stank behavior.
He tells “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that the woman, a celebrity, was more interested in hitting up red carpet events than looking after him when he was under the weather.
“This is what you learn about Hollywood – sometimes the person that you are dating is really not all that into you; it’s maybe, like, a step-up to whatever’s next. I found this out in a weird way,” he said.
“I was supposed to go to a premiere and I got, like, a 104 temperature, so I’m laying in the bed and the girl I was dating at the time goes, ‘What are we doing… It’s the premiere!’ I said, ‘I’m sick, can’t you see I’m sick?’
“(She says), ‘Well I’ve got this dress… and people are there, they’re gonna be on the red carpet for me…’ So I get up, go to the closet, grab the dress and I say, ‘Go ahead, but don’t come back!’
“That was something that tripped me out… I understood and then I seen her float on to somebody else in Hollywood… The song brilliantly tells that story.”
