In December 2005 rapper Foxy Brown held a press conference and announced to the universe that she was suffering from severe hearing loss.
Foxy gave a highly emotional speech flanked by Russell Simmons, his former wife Kimora Lee, Doug E Fresh and some other random people.
I’m guessing that Russell was the one who helped to orchestrate this entire production, because old ‘fact finder’ just LOVES to create ‘hype’ and ‘exitement’ by holding pointless press conferences.
I mean for a start who calls a press conference and then announces that they are suffering from a serious/life changing illness? Folks in the public eye generally issue official statements through their publicists if it involves news of this nature.
And it’s not like it was the late great Michael Jackson, Prince or Madonna up on the podium announcing this troubling news. It was Foxy Brown (did we really need a press conference? ) who at that point in time was residing in the Hip Hop wilderness and struggling to complete her then comeback album Black Roses.
Any way I watched the footage below again today and it was just soooooo over the top and to be brutally honest still smells like it was a publicity stunt.
I still believe she faked that whole hearing loss episode.
For those who don’t know Foxy’s hearing has since “returned”
Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm…………
