Jamie Foxx attacks Miley Cyrus on the radio

Miley CyrusJamie Foxx went on a Miley Cyrus tirade on Sirius satellite radio. He initially asked,”Who is Miley Cyrus? The one with all the gums? She needs to get a gum transplant!” He then said she should “make a sex tape and grow up! Get like Britney Spears and do some heroin. Do like Lindsay Lohan and start seeing a lesbian and get some crack in your pipe.”  Foxx later apologized, saying, “I so apologize to [Cyrus], and this is sincere,” he began. “I am a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don’t mean any of it. And sometimes, as comedians, as we do, we go a little bit too far…I didn’t mean it maliciously.” Many people are still incensed by his comments, saying he should be ashamed of himself for making fun of someone so young and shouldn’t use the “I’m a comedian” excuse. Her father, Billy Ray, is reportedly angry about Foxx’s remarks. “He thinks Jamie was out of line and didn’t find any humor in it,” an insider says, adding,  “Billy Ray isn’t going to say anything publicly because he doesn’t want this to escalate. He wishes it would just go away.” ~Meryl H.

    So, I take it Miley made more money this year than Jamie made in his lifetime, huh? She can’t change her gums any more than he can change his skin colour, so maybe he should keep his mouth shut. Actually, he could call his buddy Michael Jackson…

  2. Jen • April 15, 2009 @ 1:46 PM

    That was rude and not called for. Miley is a good girl much better then the oher actress. I am glad she did not turn into them its very good. I am sure with her father guidness she will end up better then the others

  3. Adam • April 15, 2009 @ 1:46 PM

    That comment was just as rude as Jamies’. Shame on you Nancy.

  4. Max Powers • April 15, 2009 @ 2:19 PM

    Oh God I pretty sure he was joking as he said it, if you have every heard half the stuff that Jamie Foxx says on a regular basis this is no different,..over the top?? yeah a little..funny?…hell yeah best tirant so far this year, he’s in the damn in living color hall of fame, would you expect anything less.

    P.S. free Chris Brown the real victim in all this.

  5. blaine • April 15, 2009 @ 2:32 PM

    So Jamie Foxx , as a comedian went over the line . That’s his excuse ? So from that reasoning , I have to conclude it was also ok for Michael Richards , Krammer , to cross the line .

  6. Max Powers • April 15, 2009 @ 2:39 PM

    if everyone would get off the piliticaly correct bandwagon and just move along,

    it’s weird I don’t recall there even being a wisper in the wind of Obama making fun of the special Olimpics. yet Foxx says one thing any everyone cry’s..why?…bc your jumping on the bandwagon like everyone else.

    meow…meow….hey I hear your cats calling, go take care of them lonly lady

  7. Nancy • April 15, 2009 @ 4:21 PM

    I don’t agree, Adam. Those were the gums she was born with just as the skin colour he was born with.

  8. tributegirl • April 15, 2009 @ 6:07 PM

    Nancy, I understood what you were saying. I am definitely no Miley fan, but I think what Jamie said about a 16 year old girl is disgusting, no excuses, he should be ashamed of himself.

  9. lily • April 15, 2009 @ 8:15 PM

    I got it too Nancy and you made an excelent point. I think the “shame on you” comment should be made to the grown man who said such horible and unprovoked things about a teenage girl.

  10. Moon • April 15, 2009 @ 8:55 PM

    in case jamie forgot he too is a father of a teenage daughter how would he feel when someone would have said the SAME thing about his daughter? words can be hurtful he need to think before opening his mouth

  11. lily • April 15, 2009 @ 9:05 PM

    VERY good point moon!

  12. Kim • April 15, 2009 @ 11:05 PM

    I agree with Nancy, Lily, Tributegirl, Jen and Moon. As the father of a teenage daughter, Foxx should know that teenage girls are already extremely critical of themselves and get incredibly upset when other people criticize their appearance (some have become anorexic when someone hints that they could lose a pound or two, it’s a very difficult time in life). And he did it not in front of a handful of people, but on the radio to millions of people. It’s inexcusable. He’s an adult and he should not be attacking a 16-year-old girl for any reason. And what he said, about the gums, what is he talking about? Is he referring to the clear braces she wears? I remember there used to be a guy on here who always called Miley “Little Miss Liptooth,” with obvious disdain. If her mouth looks funny, or it seems that she’s overenunciating, it’s because of the braces. Not that it matters why — just because a kid is in the public eye, it shouldn’t mean she has a target on her and is available for insults from every corner. I don’t know about you guys, but if it was me, I wouldn’t be able to handle all that criticism, never mind when I was 16. If he’s a comedian, that wasn’t very funny. Maybe he should try attacking his own family on the radio, see how they like it, before he goes for the throats of other people’s children. I’ve never seen the appeal in that kind of humour.

  13. Bob • April 16, 2009 @ 12:13 AM

    Yeah Jamie Foxx, Miley Cyrus is a Terrible actor (her show’s meant for like four year olds) and her music’s terrible

  14. ke • April 16, 2009 @ 12:37 AM

    don’t like either one of them. they can all do us a favor and eliminate each other. but still, Fox shouldn’t have said that. it didn’t sound at all like a joke then he tries to pass it off as one? Bull-. i always thought he was a d1ck.

  15. mandee • April 16, 2009 @ 12:35 PM

    i really like and agree with your article, kim. very well said. i also agree with everyone that defended miley. those were some pretty terrible things to say about a 16 year old, or anyone for that matter. also, i dont know why shes not suing. remember the picture of miley slanting her eyes? and how that woman was suing her? (not sure what ever came of that). if its not ok for miley to slant her eyes, for a pic, which are part of HER body then how come he thinks its ok to say offending things about other people and then just say “oh i was kidding”? man, id totally sue. i can understand why billy ray was soo angry about this.

  16. Jamie Fan • April 16, 2009 @ 6:31 PM

    u guys need to shut up n stop hating. so he made fun of someone, thats wut comedians do, grow up ppl.

  17. ABADDON • April 16, 2009 @ 7:44 PM

    Hanna Montana: The Movie is tops at the box office. You know what that means????????..the locust plague that will be the end of days is nigh!!

    I’ve told you people before, Miley Cyrus rise to fame has dire consequences for planet earth!!!

    Mark my words!!

    Jamie Foxx’s lighthearted comedic remarks and his quick apology goes to show the vast evil gauntlet that Billy Ray yields as Grand Master of the Apocalypse. And no one, but no one will be rude to his princess who will soon inherit all that IS and ever WAS!
    The process is in effect and cannot be reverted. Miley will seep her influence through music, movies, tv shows,merchandise until we are all converted!
    It will eventually be a zombie wasteland she will rule over!

  18. lily • April 16, 2009 @ 7:51 PM

    LIGHTHEARTED COMEDIC remarks like “make a sex tape…do some heroin…start seeing a lesbian and get some crack”. I’d suggest medication Abaddon but your WAY ahead of me, aren’t you?

  19. mandee • April 16, 2009 @ 9:57 PM

    geez, i meant post, not article lol. and abaddon, wouldnt miley cyrus be a better role model than any of the presidents or “rulers” before her? totally off topic, has anyone started watching harpers island? i only saw last weeks show, going now to watch this weeks, im already addicted! murder mystery on tv? WOO

  20. Jo-Anne • April 16, 2009 @ 10:01 PM

    ABADDON, not that I agree exactly with what you’re saying (not that I agree exactly with what you’re saying) – repeated for emphasis, as my posts have been known to be sliced, diced and chopped into teeny tiny bits and served up in a completely different platter ha ha…but I gotta say I love your style, very original, I sense possibilities…

  21. Nancy • April 16, 2009 @ 10:15 PM

    “but I gotta say I love your style, very original, I sense possibilities…”

    But….what if ABADDON has “young impressionable children”?


  22. Nancy • April 17, 2009 @ 8:27 AM

    Yes mandee, I’ve been watching Harper’s Island. I can’t wait to watch the first of the final 5 of Prison Break tonight though.

  23. mandee • April 17, 2009 @ 12:14 PM

    ive never watched prison break, how long was it on for? im glad they didnt kill that blonde guy off yesterday, i really like him lol. i hate when shows come on and then bam they are over just like that. its hard to find good tv these days, and when you do, its like its gone too fast.

  24. Nancy • April 17, 2009 @ 12:36 PM

    I think it’s been 5 seasons now for Prison Break. I thought for sure the guy you’re talking about, the blonde, was going to get it! 😀

  25. mandee • April 18, 2009 @ 12:46 AM

    ohh man, ME TOO !! i was like oh no oh no dont do it, i love him and his accent…and his HAIR. lol so what do you think of it so far? i like it, but its definitely not as hardcore as i was expecting. since i think they said it was from the writers of scream and friday the 13 or something? but im still enjoying it.

  26. Nancy • April 18, 2009 @ 3:49 PM

    I like it too. Have absolutely no clue who the killer is. I love “whodunnit” shows/movies. When they all came from the bonfire to get him I thought he was dead. Just hanging there not moving. LOL.

  27. mandee • April 18, 2009 @ 7:18 PM

    me too! for the “whodunnit” shows, and for him being dead ha ha. im thinking maybe the killer is the guy (hunter??) that wants to get with the bride. i can usually figure out just about anything, even the trickiest movie plot twists, but its still pretty early in the show for me to have much idea lol. i cant wait for more episodes!!

  28. Nancy • April 18, 2009 @ 8:14 PM

    Idk about him….her dad hired him to come back and mess up her wedding. I know the grooms brother killed the deer and put it on the hood of the other guys truck but just when I start thinking the killer is one person, someone gets killed while the person I suspect is doing something else, so then I have to start back at square one, LOL. Whole point of the show though….keep the audience in suspense. Till next Thursday… 😀

  29. mandee • April 19, 2009 @ 1:37 AM

    yeah, i know what you mean, ive toyed with the idea that it was a few people, one of them died, and the rest have been accounted for. and yes, youre right about the deer. is it wrong i kinda find the grooms brother hot?? and jimmy? the one thats chasing (abby is it?) thursdays are my second favourite day now! my fave still wins out to house on mondays!

  30. Nancy • April 19, 2009 @ 3:15 PM

    Hahahaha! Well, it’s wrong in my eyes to find him hot but it’s your choice, LOL. Neither one are “hot” to me. I’m not into House either, watch it once in a blue moon when there’s nothing else on…which is very rarely, with so many channels to choose from these days! I hate it when they are only part ways through a series and then they play repeats of it and make us wait for new shows, like Prison Break, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural to name a few. Hope they get Big Brother 11 on soon! 😛

  31. mandee • April 19, 2009 @ 7:06 PM

    yeah i have some pretty strange taste in men lol. i hate it when they play reruns too! ive only saw supernatural once or twice, i liked it. i also wanted to watch what was it, close to home or something? its just, i hate watching a series without seeing it from the first episode. i really liked tru calling but they took that off the air after i think it was a season and a half. i really like eliza dushka.

  32. Nancy • April 19, 2009 @ 8:11 PM

    My daughter and I used to watch Tru Calling all the time! Now she’s in a show called Dollhouse on Friday nights. They’ve had that show on for about a month now. New episodes of Supernatural start on April 24. I know what you mean about watching a series from the beginning. It’s hard to choose when they preview them, I mean, you can’t watch them all! So you pick and choose which ones “look” good only to find out 2 or 3 episodes into it that it’s not what you like but by then it’s too late to pick up a different show cause you’ve missed 2 or 3 episodes of it. I LMAO every Monday night though….watching a show called Big Bang Theory.

  33. mandee • April 19, 2009 @ 8:33 PM

    whats dollhouse about? i havent even heard of it. shows you how often i turn on the tv. and whats big bang theory about? havent heard of that either!

  34. Nancy • April 19, 2009 @ 8:56 PM

    Dollhouse is weird. Eliza Dushku is in it though and they are kinda like spies who get their minds wiped clean after each mission. Then for the next mission they get new memories put into their brains. The Big Bang Theory is about a group of guys who are nerds, 2 of which are roommates and have a female neighbour. It’s hilarious…to me anyways! Oh, and I wanted to tell you that my taste in men is nothing to brag about either, LOL.

  35. mandee • April 19, 2009 @ 10:42 PM

    well, my problem is im not really into comedy. for some reason its very rare that i find movies funny. i do like some of them though, although its not like lol funny. that dollhouse one sounds kinda neat. maybe ill check it out if im ever home when its on. im just too specific with the types of tv shows i watch.

  36. lily • April 20, 2009 @ 5:30 PM

    OMG Nancy I didn’t think anyone else was watching The Big Bang Theory besides me! Ive only seen it a few times but i think its really hillarious! It came on after something else I was watching so I kind of saw it by mistake but now Im a big fan!

  37. lily • April 20, 2009 @ 5:33 PM

    OMG Nancy I didn’t think anyone else was watching The Big Bang Theory besides me! Ive only seen it a few times but i think its really hillarious to! It came on after something else I was watching so I kind of saw it by mistake but now Im a big fan!

  38. Nancy • April 21, 2009 @ 4:15 PM

    LOL. I always watch it. Also love Hell’s Kitchen and Medium too.

  39. tributegirl • April 21, 2009 @ 5:16 PM

    Guys, I tried watching the Big Bang Theory last night, hated it! Sorry, but I thought it was just one tiny little step above The Office!

  40. Nancy • April 21, 2009 @ 6:13 PM

    Hahaha, that’s okay…as long as it is “above” The Office, LMFAO! Personally, I find the office is weird because it is people who wear suits and ties and they’re being “weird” whereas in The Big Bang Theory, they are nerds and expected to be weird.

  41. mandee • April 21, 2009 @ 10:46 PM

    i love the office, but so far have only saw the first season. didnt even get into it until my cousin brought the first season last summer and i watched it. so since its already into like season 5, i didnt get any further into it. i will have to rent the seasons or something. cant wait for new dexter (if hes coming back on that is)

  42. lily • April 22, 2009 @ 6:38 AM

    Sorry tributegirl and Nancy but I also think the Office is pritty funny, I just havent seen it alot. Mandee, I only saw season 1 of Dexter but I LOVED it and I want to rent the rest of them too!

  43. tributegirl • April 22, 2009 @ 3:02 PM

    I’ve never even heard of Dexter, but The Office, man I have to change the channel as soon as it comes on, sorry, but I find it to not be just weird, I find it to be stupid. And that’s true about the people on Big Bang are nerds, but I still hated it. Ah well, as long as Idol is still on! Two going home tonight! I think it will be Lil & Matt, I think Adam & Alison will be the final two.

  44. Nancy • April 22, 2009 @ 8:28 PM

    I think Lil and Matt too. I’ve watched Dexter before and like it….the world could use a few like him, that’s for sure. LOL. Tonight I’ll be watching Lost and hopefully a new episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, I don’t watch Amer. Idol much after the fuuuunnny auditions, I basically just “hear” it as my desk is between the dining room and the tv. I wish they’d hurry up and get Big Brother 11 on, my daughter and I are anxious to watch.

  45. mandee • April 22, 2009 @ 11:36 PM

    yeah i really want adam to win this year. ive caught the last 4 episodes. dexter is about a guy who works in blood splatter in the police department, but is also a serial killer. he kills murderers, rapists or whatnot. people that deserve to die. its great.

  46. mandee • April 23, 2009 @ 1:01 AM

    oh man, it was soo heartbreaking when those 2 were voted off. too bad, i sure wish it had of been the justin timberlake wannabe. havent we saw enough of that with the REAL justin? i was rooting for anoop 🙁

  47. tributegirl • April 27, 2009 @ 7:00 PM

    hahaha, that’s too funny! That’s what we always say about Matt, he’s a Justin Timberlake wannabe!

  48. mandee • April 27, 2009 @ 11:00 PM

    lol yeah its terrible how much he wants to be justin! i dont think ANYONE should EVER want to be justin timberlake !

  49. lily • April 28, 2009 @ 6:54 AM

    lol why are you hating on Justin, mandee? Seen him on SNL or Ellen..he is a hillarious guy! Seriously, check out his “beep in a box” skit. My sons made me watch it and its the funniest thing I’ve ever seen (no offense to people who don’t like comedy thats rude). Also, totally agree with all the Adam voters cause I’ve loved him from the first time I saw him and he has NO competition for the win, tho I think a few of the others are pretty great too.

  50. mandee • April 29, 2009 @ 1:00 AM

    i just hate his style thats all.
