Billy Ray Cyrus Is Tired Of Taking The Blame For Miley
Someone is going a little bit cray-cray it seems. While Billy Ray Cyrus has kept quiet since condemning his daughter Miley’s bong scandal in December, he finally opens up to GQ in their new March issue. But I think he’s gone off the deep end. Like his hair in the 90s.
In the interview, he believes that Hanna Montana “destroyed” his family and fears that Miley will end up dead like Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain or Anna Nicole Smith…
*Ps: in the photo, what is a taco party pack? I need it in my life…
“Every time something happened in Miley’s career, every time the train went off the track, if you will – Vanity Fair, pole-dancing, whatever scandal it was – her people, or as they say in today’s news, her handlers, every time they’d put me … ‘Somebody’s shooting at Miley! Put the old man up there!'” Billy Ray told the magazine about why he used to have such a strong public presence in his daughter’s life.
“Well, I took it, because I’m her daddy, and that’s what daddies do,” he added. “‘Okay, nail me to the cross, I’ll take it … ‘ “
Now the 49-year-old father of six said he realized “they used me every time.” And he eventually reached his breaking point, choosing not to attend the starlet’s 18th birthday party last year.
“You know why I didn’t go? Because they were having it in a bar,” he explained. “It was wrong. It was for 21-years-old and up. Once again all them people, they all wanted me to fly out so that then when all the bad press came they could say, ‘Daddy endorsed this stuff … ‘”
“If I would have went out there I would have been right in the middle of all this stuff that’s going on right now with the bong. They’d be hanging it on my ass,” Billy Ray continued. “I had the common sense … I said, ‘This whole thing’s falling apart up there and they just want to blame all of this stuff on you again.’ I’m staying out of it.”
I mean, I can see his point but isn’t he her father and doesn’t he still have the ability to control her ass (or did until her birthday)? I sometimes don’t understand these celebrity parents who forget that they are still parents and they can be parental and not friends with their children. Good for him for not standing by anymore and taking the blame but he ought to do a little bit more if he really is afraid his daughter is going to end up dead soon…
