News: Foxy Brown Says Drunk Rumors Are Na Na True
Friday, Feb 25, 2011 12:10PM
Brooklyn rapper Foxy Brown has further clarified rumors of her public alleged public intoxication in a bathroom during a fashion party last week.
Discussing her recent headline as the drunk celebrity at fashion designer Indashio's New York City party last week, Foxy defended her image.
"I don't know how any rumors got started. Indashio is a personal friend of mine -- I'm his biggest supporter, he's my biggest supporter...It was all about me coming to support one of my closest friends in fashion. And when I got there, he dragged me in, and we were falling all over, happy. Happy, not intoxicated, at all. I'm not even a drinker. And we never locked ourselves in the bathroom; people were coming in and out. They're saying I was physically escorted out of the building by security, that I had this huge fight, I was intoxicated, falling all over. And there's not one picture, one photo from any of the club-goers, nothing. Not only that -- it took six days for this quote-unquote "breaking story" to surface? Does that make sense?" (Billboard)
She also revealed the motivation behind addressing the rumor.
"I was watching something about Hillary Clinton one day -- she had an interview, I think, on 'Dateline' -- and they said, 'Hillary, why is it that you respond to everything they've said about you in the press?' And she said, 'Simply because as a celebrity or a public figure, when something is written about you negatively, and you don't respond, it becomes part of your legacy.'...Usually a lot of sh*t that's written, it's like, 'Whatever, we're not even addressing it.' But this was important because of what we're doing in the future. Indy is designing the Foxy collection of dresses, and we're about to do so much for fashion." (Billboard)
Earlier this week, Foxy denied intoxication and bathroom rumors.
"The story is a complete fabrication," Foxy promised. ""When I got to the club I was not intoxicated at all. That's a lie. There was no intoxication, there was no drama, and I was never physically escorted out by security...And people were coming in and out of the bathroom." (Radar Online)
