Billy Ray Cyrus’ recent interview with GQ was thought-provoking to say the least. Cyrus talked about daughter Miley in a no-holds-barred discussion that covered topics like her controversial salvia-smoking, the under-age starlet’s birthday party at a bar, and how he swears he never made any money off her. And now it seems all that frank talk has Miley pissed off.
A source tells PopEater that Miley is livid over her father’s interview. saying “To say Miley is angry is an understatement. She’s furious that her own flesh and blood would make a private matter so public. Who does he think he is, Michael Lohan?” Oh, s—! Not a Michael Lohan comparison. That’s pretty bad. The source also says that the two haven’t actually spoken since December but the GQ article was like the last nail in the coffin. “This isn’t what a father does. He never said a bad world about Hannah Montana all those years it made millions for the family, and now that Miley has turned 18 and is making her own decisions, he does this. Unforgivable.” Before you know it, Billy Ray is going to be signing Miley up to do Letterman Top Ten lists without her knowledge. Don’t let it get to that, y’all! Hug it out!
While the rest of us are giggling up a storm at Miley Cyrus’s bong video, we forgot the one person who might not be so thrilled to see his little girl publicly tripping on a hallucinogenic herb: her dad. Billy Ray Cyrus tweeted about Miley smoking salvia this afternoon. “Sorry guys. I had no idea. Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. Im so sad. There is much beyond my control right now,” explained Billy Ray. See, this is why dads shouldn’t have access to Twitter! Oh, also, why you shouldn’t do drugs on camera. We mean, ever! Don’t do drugs ever!
These past few months have not been kind to Miley’s dad, as the “so much” beyond his control could also refer to his pending divorce from wife Tish Cyrus after her rumored infidelity. You know what would reeeeeally help you relax during these tough times, Billy Ray? Sorry, we’re just kidding! Seriously, don’t do drugs. [Photo: Getty Images]
SuddenlyGQ’sGlee spread just got kind of creepy again. It turns out that Billy Ray Cyrus is actually a member of the Parents Television Council, the organization that got its suspenders all bunched up over the non-nude photos of some twenty-somethings that appeared in a men’s magazine. And it breaks his achey breaky heart to hear the pics dissed as offensive. Somehow we don’t think the Billy Ray Seal of Approval will help GQ’s argument, but let’s hear him out.
According to TMZ, Cyrus disagrees with the PTC’s accusations that the photos of Lea Michele and Diana Agron are bordering on pedophilia. And we trust him.Ã‚Â If anyone knows the fine line between art and pedophilia, it’s this guy.Ã‚Â Mr. Miley has grown “disappointed” Ã‚Â and “fed up” with the council’s actions as of late, saying that it “has recently beenÃ‚Â spending all its time attacking people rather than promoting family television.” “Like Hannah Montana,” he added in his mind.
This isn’t the only rift between him and the PTC. Just recently they criticized his daughter Miley (who actually is underage)Ã‚Â for her newÃ‚Â “Who Owns My Heart” video. But apparently it wasn’t serious enough to force him to, you know, actually leave the council. Oh well. All we have left to say is: damn you Glee for making us side with Billy Ray Cyrus on something. Savor this moment Billy, because it’s probably the only time your name and “GQ” will ever appear together in print.
rnBack when we were teenagers, just about the most scandalous thing you could do was to get caught necking at Inspiration Point. Wait, come to think of it, we spent so much time glued to the television during our formative years that we often get our own memories mixed up with old plotlines of Leave It To Beaver. Either way, today’s teens sure are crazy, aren’t they? rnrnTake Miley Cyrus, for instance. As you’ll no doubt recall, Miss Hannah Montana herself was caught on camera earlier this week giving a booze-fueled lapdance to 44 year-old motion picture director Adam Shankman. And while most parents would follow up such behavior by giving their offspring a stern talking-to (perhaps accompanied by a Wagging Finger of Shame), Billy Ray Cyrus doesn’t seem too concerned about his daughter’s proclivities. As he tells TMZ, “It’s just what people her age do.” Funny, we missed that chapter the last time we consulted our dog-eared copy of Dr. Spock, but then again, we probably just have an outdated version of that book.rnrn[Photo Credit: FilmMagic]
Poor Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus – try as they might to keep daughter Miley under their thumb for as long as possible, she decided it was time to move out and get her own place. Commence the aching and breaking of their hearts NOW.
Miley tells People that even though her mother wanted her to live at home until she turned 20, she convinced her otherwise. “I’m actually buying a placem” she says. “I haven’t moved in yet. I’m still reconstructing and stuff.” Her mom is on board with the new pad though and plans to help decorate, she explains. “My mom’s an interior designer so my house is going to be perfect all the time.”
At seventeen we had some interesting (i.e. embarrassing) ideas about what was cool, and it turns out that Miley is no different – like us, she’s a hippie who leans toward a Pier 1 aesthetic. ”We did all these different things to make it a place that’s so chill, like all my couches are on the floor and I have pillows on the floor. It’s just serene – like my own kind of therapy.” Or, you know, like the lobby of a yoga studio.
Then she revealed the secret meaning behind all these low-to-the-ground furnishings that we never understood before, divulging that, “my religion is love, so my door is always open for anyone who wants to come in.” Except for pregnant ladies and old people who have trouble getting up out of their chairs even when they’re at a normal height – your religion excludes them.
Miley Cyrus, seen getting coffee with Last Song co-star/rumored boyfriendLiam Hemsworth, isn’t going to take your negative crap, America. Inappropriate activity for an underage girl is in the eye of the beholder. “People like controversy because that’s what sells,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar in a new interview. “My job is to be a role model, and that’s what I want to do, but my job isn’t to be a parent. My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act, because I’m still figuring that out for myself.” Besides, you’re the ones thinking dirty thoughts about her.
For instance, take those risque Annie Liebowitz pics from a while back. “Here, my parents are thinking they’re seeing a beautiful photograph by a major photographer, and the people of America want to see something dirty in that? It doesn’t make sense to us because [my family] doesn’t look for negativity.” So that’s why Billy Ray gave her a standing ovation when she worked the pole at the Teen Choice Awards. “No one wants to look at something like that and see the positive because it doesn’t sell a magazine.”
Hey, plenty of guys have seen the positive in your budding sexuality, Miley. Don’t assume all of America has a beef with your self-discovery. [via PopEater]
It’s always adorable when little kids go out trick or treating with pals, except when the kids are dressed like sorority girls decked out in their best slutty costumes for that night’s frat party. Here we have lil Noah Cyrus, who is all smiles at a couple of L. A. Halloween parties while looking a bit too skank-tastic for our liking.
It’d be one thing if her big sisMiley was rockin’ the stripper boots and the short dresses – we’re used Miley dressin’ trampy and she is, at least, a teenager (see Miley’s latest sexy outfit). But Noah is 9 YEARS OLD. Did Billy Ray and Mommy Tish really think these outfits were appropriate for their young daughter? And more importantly, what the hell is she supposed to be – the number 1 and 2 spots on Mr. Blackwell’s Worst-Dressed List?
Maybe we’re just being prude. What’s your take on the kid’s costume – too sexy or totally okay? [Photo: GettyImages/ Splash News Online]
Previously unreleased footage of Miley Cyrus from last month’s VH1 Divasconcert reveals just what a 180 she’s done on Twitter. Watch her recommend the service to Sheryl Crow backstage. “Twitter’s awesome! You should [get] a twitter because if anyone says anything mean about you, you can just like get back at them right away, like for the world to see…So, like any time anyone says anything, I’m like, ‘That’s not true, that’s not true, that’s not true’ *imitates angry texting*. It’s the best.” Irony in the USA!
Miley wouldn’t be the first teenage girl to change her mind on a dime—and Billy Ray still says it’s about hackers despite her “I need privacy” rap video—but Neil Hemsworth must be some kind of kisser to keep her from posting goofy pictures and talking about mom’s bug bites.
Fans like Billy Ray Cyrus may be bummed that Miley Cyrus has left Twitter, but they can’t say she’s cutting them out of her weblife entirely. The erstwhile Hannah Montana posted a rap video on the subject Friday, complete with back-up dancers. “The reasons are simple/I started tweetin’ about pimples/ I stopped living for moments/ and started living for people.” Wait, it’s wrong to live for other people now? Did Liam Hemsworth give her a copy of Atlas Shrugged?
Worried her video would be perceived as glib by slighted Twitter buddies—or unable to actually get off the damn net—Miley wrote a more serious blog post about the subject on her web page.
You all are the closest thing to my heart & it breaks my spirit to hear that some of you feel neglected since I deleted my twitter…I often complain to the ones closest to me that I don’t seem to have much of a private life any more and part of that is my fault. How can I whine about my life being to public if I am the one telling the world what I am doing? I need to be able to live and learn in private. I never want to quit entertaining it is my life, my love, and my passion but I can’t have my personal life be other peoples entertainment.
This isn’t a personal attack on Twitter is not the only thing I am cutting back on. This is not an attack against this particular site, I just think kids all over the world could maybe take a little vacation from Cyberspace.
That’s all well and fine for kids, Miley. But what about Dads worried they’re losing their daughter’s ear to some Aussie stud of a co-star? How long before Billy Ray sits in front of his web cam singing “Butterfly Kisses” as a response to your YouTube?
Billy Ray Cyrus has taken to his Twitter to hound daughter Miley about returning to the messaging service. While we obviously sympathize, there is just so much wrong about this.
Miley. You are a light in a world of darkness. You were born”Destiny Hope Cyrus” for a reason.You can’t leave everyone now.We r countin on u.
I understand “it is true one bad apple spoils the bunch”.But listen to the words of your songs “Stand… for what ya believe in”…Remember?
First off, if the issue that she’s not on Twitter anymore, so why write to her on Twitter? Does he assume she checks his page? Second, while any dad loves to embarrass his daughter, shouldn’t he be bringing up her full name and song lyrics at the kitchen table rather than on a website? And third, if your biggest beef with your kid is that she no longer wants to expose her inner thoughts online, consider yourself incredibly lucky. And shave off that damn soul patch—you’re almost 50.
