Comedian Jamie Foxx has issued a mea culpa to Miley Cyrus after suggesting she make a sex tape, become a lesbian and, uh, do heroin.
"I so apologize ... and this is sincere," he said on the "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Tuesday. "I am a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don't mean any of it."
"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."
Foxx came under fire from Cyrus fans after verbally attacking the "Hannah Montana" star on his Sirius radio show on Sunday. The 16-year-old should "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," Foxx opined.
And now he's taken a different tact.
"Miley, I apologize, so I'll call you," Foxx said Tuesday. "I got a daughter too, so I completely understand."
