Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade
on Sirius: Too much?
Apr 14, 2009, 12:41 PM | by Leah Greenblatt

You may know him now as the affable Oscar-winner/R&B star who gets buddies like Jake Gyllenhaal and Ron Howard to appear in his music videos. Many forget, though, that Jamie Foxx got his start on the far-raunchy spectrum of stand-up comedy.

The guy who once banked on a more dangerous brand of humor (see his turn on the boundary-goosing '90s sketch show In Living Color) was in full effect yesterday on his Sirius radio show, Foxxhole -- ripping into teen superstar and current box office queen Miley Cyrus in a brief, expletive-laced segment.

The catalyst? A caller singling out Cyrus's recent displeasure with indie-rock demigods Radiohead, who refused to meet her backstage at this year's Grammys (she later threatened on another syndicated radio show to "ruin them.") Foxx responds incredulously, "Who is Miley Cyrus? She's gonna ruin Radiohead's career? The same Radiohead that gets paid a million dollars just to sample their songs?"

Cyrus, he goes on to say in an obviously jesting but possibly defamatory riff, 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. Catch chlamydia on a bicycle seat..."That's what I want." Cubicle dwellers, grab your headphones for the full and very NSFW clip.

Granted,this would all be tiny potatoes were it not for the status of both stars -- Foxx has a highly touted film, The Soloist, due out later this month, and Cyrus is quite possibly the most famous 16-year-old on the planet right now. But words said in a dank comedy-club basement are, like it or not, not the same as those heard instantly 'round the high-speed-connection universe.

What do you think, readers? Does Miley's public figure-dom trump her age, or was Foxx out of line? Is this kind of humor meant to have a platform on a free-speech outlet like Sirius, or does he owe her a public apology? Will this effect how you feel about buying the music or going to see the films of either artist?

Fox is no better than Don Imus! Sure he went on some late night show and apologized....Big Deal! So did Imus....Over & Over

So he's a comedian....Is that suppose to make it OK?

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

I think the Imus situation is a bit different as he had a past history of bigoted statements. Still inappropriate though.

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

well, i like radiohead so that part he could have stopped there.

but the rest, not so great. she is still 16. but, i got to gist.

miley thinks she's a bit too important.

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

i'm no Miley fan, but Jamie Foxx is just not funny.., AND they were aimed at a 16 year old...

well done Jamie, you're a tough guy!...

would love to see him make such comments about someone like 50 Cent etc.



he isn't even that good an actor, how he was even nominated for that fluke oscar he got is beyond me...yet alone win it!

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

Whatever Miley Cyrus is a pain in the ass and she thinks she is the world's biggest star. I'm glad people are saying shit about her and I cannot wait till the day Disney drops her for someone new.

SERENA 23 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

I dont like Miley but still, Jamie was a ass and he has a daughter around the same age as Miley *16* and he knows he wouldnt want anyone talking about his daughter like that. The whole "little white bitch comment" was wrong to cause we all know if had been "little black bitch" this thread would be on page 6 talking about how that comment was racist.

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

I don't know which one of them annoys me more. Miley Cyrus, who subjects the world to a singing voice that sounds like it's in the latter stages of lung cancer, or Jamie Foxx, who continued to impersonate Ray Charles for nearly a year after that movie was released, which, beyond being sad, was more than a little bit creepy.

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

Miley is an annoying little taint. I think it would be awesome if more comedians bashed her other then Jamie Foxx and Joel McHale from 'The Soup'.

I know he didnt. I'm talking about the whole thing together. The female radio host said it. I was just making the point that people are making it out like this is fine just because they dont like someone but its not.

Re: Jamie Foxx's Miley Cyrus tirade

So many people with a chip on their shoulder about Miley.

Just cause she possibly made more than Jamie Foxx last year probably pisses him off.
She is the next global superstar imho.

Considering her blatant lack of talent, that would be a shame.
