Billy Ray Cyrus Praises Miley: She's on a "Whole New Level!"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It looks like Mike Will Made It isn't the only fan of Miley Cyrus these days.

During an appearance on Piers Morgan Live last night, father Billy Ray showered his daughter with praise, giving Miley props for shedding her Disney label and taking risks.

“She could’ve stayed Hannah Montana forever and made a great living doing that," he said. "But she’s more of an artist than that and she wanted to make a living and evolve.”

Billy Ray has been making the media rounds ever since Miley Twerked up a controversial storm at the Video Music Awards and then got naked for her Wrecking Ball video.

Following the latter, he gushed over his child's "God given talent."

Why has the 20-year old been going to such racy lengths? 

"Miley's smart enough to know that to come out of the shadows of Hannah Montana, it really takes something extremely drastic," he told Morgan. "When you go to that level, it creates passion, and passion is either love or hate. But there's no middle of the road for passion."

Adding that the singer has "risen to a whole new level" over the past few weeks, Billy Ray says this is all part of a strategy. It's all been "“thought out in advance."

And it's certainly worked: "Wrecking Ball" marks Miley's first-ever #1 single.

“She’s really very focused and loves what she’s doing," the older country star said. "And that’s the main thing for me as a dad, seeing my little girl doing what she loves and making the music that she loves to make and hanging out with some incredibly talented producers, singer-songwriters, musicians."

And Britney Spears. Miley has also been hanging out a lot with Britney Spears.

Must agree with Billy Ray, Miley has risen to a whole new level of lewd and obscene. We've seen enough.

Of course he thinks it's all fine, he's been pimping her out since she was 10, teaching her that money and attention are all-important.

@ wtf

You are correct. He is a shameless excuse for a father

Well with that attitude, guess he's getting a cut out of her skanky behaviour. There's unconditional love but that only extends so far before you take a stand and say enough already!

IT'S A HILLBILLY !!! NO NEED WASTING YOUR TIME TRYING TO EXPLAIN IT TO HIM ..... AS LONG AS SHE COMES HOME WIFF SOME MONEY , ALL IS WELL !!!

Hes an idiot who only cares about money. If she was making millions as prostitute he'd be supporting her as well.
Mileys no "artist".

Here in 'Merica we should stand up for more people/views/beliefs, so to all the people putting him down for supporting his daughter (like he should) sit down shut up and take notes!!

Props to Dad for supporting your daughter and exhibiting an example of "unconditional love" publicly!

If she is an "artist" per daddy - at least brush your tongue before the performance - a germ coated tongue is not desirable for any artist. Oral hygiene should have been taught by the parents. Billy Ray you failed.

She's not out of control. She justs coming out of her shell. That video Wrecking Ball had way more to it then her being naked. You have to look past that. She's exploring and freeing her mind. Its her life her choice. There Is way worse things that have been done and put out there. Miley is trying to find her right path.
