Jamie Foxx Disses Miley Cyrus By Michelle Tan Originally posted Tuesday April 14, 2009 09:30 AM EDT Oh. Snap. Jamie Foxx had some choice words for Miley Cyrus on his weekend Sirius radio show The Foxxhole. When the on-air conversation veered toward the 16-year-old pop star, Foxx, 41, asked: "Who is Miley Cyrus?" As someone explained Cyrus is the star of the popular Hannah Montana franchise, Foxx quipped, "The one with all the gums? She's got to get a gum transplant!" That's not the only piece of advice the Oscar winner handed down to the Disney powerhouse. Foxx also suggested that Cyrus "make a se x tape and grow up. Get like Britney Spears and do some heroi n. Do like Lindsay Lohan ? and get some crac k in your pipe ? That's what I want." A rep for Foxx had no comment and a rep for Cyrus did not respond to requests for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I thought it was funny, myself. I didn't hear it but I read something on MSNBC about it. When taken in context, it was harmless -- apparently the conversation/routine started when someone on the show brought up the Radiohead incident. Apparently she got snubbed at the Grammy's by Radiohead and said she would ruin their careers or something. Tough talk for a teenie bopper pop-star, IMO. I think what has everyones panties in a bunch is that she is listened and looked up to by so many teens and pre-teens. The fact that the remarks came from a black man probably added some sting. I wonder if the outrage an publicity would be the same if someone like Howard Stern made the same comments.
