FOXX TAKES FIRST STEPS TOWARDS TRANSATLANTIC MUSIC CAREER

If you ever wondered if the Brits organisers were free to book who they wanted, and really pull together a brilliant show, the news that Jamie Foxx is going to "make Kanye West's performance better" gives you your answer: somebody has decided that Foxx needs a robust platform to launch his British musical career from, and the Brits have decided to fall in with what their label paymasters want:

According to IOL.com a source said: "Jamie's going to come over with (West) and sing for the Brits. It's just eight weeks before the big push to make Jamie a music star over here with the release of his album. The timing is perfect."

Isn't it just?

We do find ourselves wondering if Foxx had won awards for playing a surgeon rather than a singer, would we now be watching him scrub up down the Bevendean General?
