Jamie Foxx isn’t his real name because everything we know is a lie

What if I told you that everything you know is a lie? What if I told you that Jamie Foxx‘s real name isn’t even Jamie Foxx? How would you even know what’s real anymore?

This is Jamie Foxx—or is it?!

The man is an all-around superstar. He’s a Grammy Award-winning singer and an Oscar-winning actor. Oh, and he’s pretty incredible at musical impressions too.

Jamie Foxx’s real name is… Eric Marlon Bishop?!?

Eric? What is going on here?

Naturally, the internet lost their minds.

WHO IS EARL MARLON BISHOP AND WHAT DID HE DO TO JAMIE FOXX?

Apparently, Bishop (or Foxx or whoever this guy really is) started using the name during his stand-up comedy days, after he learned that female comedians were often called to perform first.

Turns out, it’s not just Foxx who’s been lying to us this whole time—Stevie Wonder and Elton John aren’t their real names either.

Pretty crazy, huh?
