Jamie Foxx was a guest on Jay Leno last night promoting his upcoming film The Soloist where he publicly apologized for telling Miley to get a gum transplant, make a sex tape with her dad, smoke crack, shoot heroin and catch chlamydia from a bicycle seat on his Sirius radio show. Jamie, calling his show the black Howard Stern, says that because he’s a comedian first and foremost, he sometimes gets carried away.

“I so apologize to [Miley], and this is sincere. 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 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.”

Jamie was probably scared that the Miley Cyrus army was getting ready to mobilize and he didn’t want any of that. One more day and they would have kicked his ass. Being beat up by a bunch of 12-year-old girls and then tied naked to a flag pole with a Hannah Montanna themed rope wearing only your Pound Puppies boxers would have been pretty embarrassing. For Jamie, I mean. For me, that’s called a Thursday.
