Feeling sorry for the controversy he has caused for publicly telling Miley Cyrus to "make a sex tape" and "do some heroin" during his radio show "The Foxxhole" over the weekend, Jamie Foxx has made a public apology to the teen sensation during his appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" Tuesday, April 14. "I so apologize to [Cyrus], and this is sincere," the actor-singer was quoted as saying.

He furthermore explained, "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." He continued stating, "I have a radio show ... We're really the black Howard Stern. We go at everybody. There was a situation with Miley Cyrus, and I just want to say, I apologize for what I said. I didn't mean it maliciously. You know I'm a comedian. You know my heart."

At the end, Jamie said, "Miley, I apologize, so I'll call you. I got a daughter too, so I completely understand." At time of writing, it is not known if Jamie has made a call to Miley. The Disney actress-singer herself has not yet made a single comment on the issue.

Taking aim at Miley Cyrus for publicly vowing to ruin Radiohead's career after the band refused to meet her at the 51st annual Grammy Awards back on February 8, Jamie Foxx and the crew on his "The Foxxhole" radio show made harsh comment toward the 16-year-old star. He told her to "grow up, ..... get like Britney Spears, ...... do like Lindsay Lohan and start seeing a lesbian and get some crack in your pipe ..... And catch chlamydia on a bicycle seat."

Holy Hell... Why is everybody ignoring the fact that she THREATENED TO RUIN THE CAREERS OF THE MEMBERS OF RADIOHEAD? And Why? Because the little brat didn't get her way. Cry me a river. If you're going to throw tantrums in public, then grow a thick skin because you WILL get it back worse than you dish it out. While Foxx's particular comments were in poor taste, he has the freedom of speech, same as everybody else... and Miley Cyrus had it coming the second she started acting like some spoiled, entitled little brat in public. Sixteen years old or not, if she plans to remain in this career, she better grow that thick skin asap. So Foxx apologized... Maybe he was trying to avoid a negative impact on his career... maybe it was sincere and he realized how he would've felt if someone said those things about his daughter... the point is, the man apologized when he didn't have to... he CHOSE to try to make it right. So where is Ms. Miley Cyrus's apology to Radiohead? She didn't just say a few mean things about the way they look or tell them to make a sex tape... she threatened to RUIN their CAREERS... the career they have all been working for since 1985. I'd like to hear this little spoiled princess apologize to THEM.

Jamie, that was painful to listen to. It wasn't even a bit funny. Just nasty and spiteful. You and your cohorts need to add a few words to your vocabulary. I'm embarrassed for you.
