Celebrity Rock: Blame It (2009)

Actor-comic-singer Jamie Foxx, emboldened by his success in "Ray", has been splitting his time between movies and recording in recent years. If you'll recall, Jamie made his singing debut on In Living Color, but he'd probably get hated on for resorting to using Auto-Tune to augument his vocals for "Blame It", the first single from his 2009 CD, "Intuition".

Director Hype Williams loaded up on guest stars. Jamie is joined on vocals by the King of Auto-Tune himself, T-Pain, plus guest appearances by Jake Gyllenhall, Ron Howard, Forest Whitaker, Samuel L. Jackson, and an uncredited Quincy Jones (how can you miss the Q-Man, anyway?). And to think this musical comeback started not with "Ray", but by appearing in a video with the likes of Busta Rhymes and Diddy.

One thing I don't get. How could Jamie have been wearing that panda head the whole time when he was in a scene with the panda-man earlier? Someone else obviously had the panda head for most of the video.......
