In the battle of what Bill Hicks once called "fevered egos tainting our collective unconscious and making us pay a higher psychic price" in the music and entertainment world, we have a new party dipping their hat into the ring. After taking a pot shot at Radiohead, Miley Cyrus, daughter of the original fevered ego, has been dividing the music world yet again between the fans Miley Cyrus, Thom Yorke, or similiarly pot-shot taking Kanye West. West, to his credit, has been staying out of feuds this past week after a healthy serving of humble gefilte fish of alternate lifestyles at the hands of South Park. Nonetheless, Jamie Foxx, his collaborator on "Gold Digger," has taken his place in the feud, making a comment that, while not in all caps, is arguably more tasteless than anything Kanye said.
On his Sirius satellite radio show Foxxhole, the Oscar-winner called Cyrus a "little white bitch" and then went into a rant for the ages:
"Who is Miley Cyrus?" an incredulous Foxx, who has a teenage daughter of his own, said. "The one with all the gums? She gotta get a gum transplant…S–t."
"She’s gonna ruin Radiohead’s career? The same Radiohead that gets paid a million dollars just to sample their songs?
"Make a sex tape and grow up," he continued. "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."
Foxx, who hardly sounds like the genius of Ray Charles in the rant, has yet to face backlash for his comments. It’s important to remember that Foxx is a comedian, like his show. His occaisional dabblings into serious acting and music, however, have made him a power enemy in the Walt Disney corporation; we can only imagine a response from someone will be coming soon enough.
