Tonight the Apollo Theater celebrated its 75th anniversary and the common thread from all of the celebrities, as they walked on the red carpet, was that the Apollo has always had the toughest crowds.
As Ruby Dee, Quincy Jones, Bill Cosby, Paul Mooney and Phylicia Rashad worked an overly crowded and small red carpet, the story that got the most attention belonged to Jamie Foxx.
He recounted his first time appearing on stage and how the fans let him have it.
“I came out you know it was a whole LA thing. Well he’s from LA, boo boo boo. Man they booed me in opera.”
But no harm no foul according to Foxx, the tape of the event was never aired and even with the reaction, “It was my favorite time… you get booed it’s part of it.”
And with that Foxx walked in to present an award to Quincy Jones.
