Over the weekend, jokesters of internet took a much deserved break from mocking Ivanka Trump to roast themselves for believing Jamie Foxx was actually "Jamie Foxx."
The comedian, actor, and shockingly excellent singer was not, through serendipity, given the world's sexiest stage name at birth.
Jamie Foxx is actually Eric Marlon Bishop.
In 2012, Yahoo explained why Foxx/Bishop changed his name, and it's full of interesting details. Like, the fact that Foxx had performed for years as a pianist under his birth name of Eric Bishop, but it was only the hellscape of comedy that forced him to undergo an identity transformation.
