Jamie Foxx won’t be gifting gadgets

Jamie Foxx can’t wait for his annual Christmas party with all of his LA friends.

Jamie Foxx hasn’t bought his youngest daughter a Playstation for Christmas.

Although he’s one of the biggest stars in the world, with an Oscar and countless other accolades under his belt, Jamie has decided against the games console this year.

The celebrated star has two daughters, Corinne, 20, and five-year-old Annalise, and is looking forward to spoiling them this Yuletide – but hasn’t stuck to their wish list.

“My [Christmas] list is for my two children. They’re so into electronics. My youngest daughter wants a Playstation – but she is not gonna get one,” Jamie laughed to Us Weekly magazine.

As for his December 25 plans, Jamie has a tradition that he always upholds.

It started nearly two decades ago, when he realised that not everyone can get home for the holidays.

“I host a Christmas party at my house for all my LA friends who cannot get back to see their families. I have done it for the past 17 years!” he smiled.

When it comes to his favourite festive film, the 47-year-old chose a lesser-known title.

“The Year Without a Santa Claus. ‘I’m Mister White Christmas, I’m Mister Snow,’” he sang. “It’s Claymation [clay animation] from back in the day.”

Jamie has also recently been talking about one Christmas that sticks in his mind. It involves laying down some tracks with a rapping superstar.

“I have crazy stories of Snoop [Dogg] and Christmas. One Christmas, literally December 24, and my phone [rang]. I said ‘Hello?’ ‘Hey, what’s up nephew? It’s Snoop D O double baby,’” Jamie laughed to BBC Radio 1.

“I opened the door, he gets out of his Porsche with two bottles of Moët, a blue Santa Claus hat and some orange juice and said, ‘What we doing?’ and I said, ‘Cool!’ And with the Moët and the orange juice, and I remember we were in my studio, we do a song, and then it’s Christmas, he leaves and it was a crazy Christmas. And I go back into my studio and I play the song and I’m like, ‘Oh! This is dope.’ I send it to him and he puts it on his album.”
