Billy Ray Cyrus Reacts to "Wrecking Ball," Gushes Over Miley's "God Given Talent"

by at . Comments

Billy Ray Cyrus is once again standing up for his daughter.

After defending Miley as his "little girl" not long after her racy Video Music Awards routine, the country singer appeared on Entertainment Tonight yesterday and was asked about the elephant in the room.

The naked, crying, swinging-on-a-wrecking-ball elephant that is his 20-year old daughter in hew new video.

"I'm a song man," Cyrus said. "I come from the old school where it starts with an artist and a song...colliding if you a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band and the listener become one."

Well, sure. Of course. Preach on, Billy Ray...

"It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt... a Tux...or a nun's habit. The song's a smash...and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent."

Some may argue with that assessment, of course, but it's similar to Miley's own explanation for the "Wrecking Ball" video.

In a radio interview Wednesday morning, the singer asked viewers to focus on her tears over her titties.

"If people can take their minds off the obvious and go deeper into their imagination and see what the video really means, it is so vulnerable," she said. "It was much more of an emotional experience."

But will this be the final straw for some fans? Will they see Cyrus as more of a publicity generator than an actual artist? As the following video puts it, will the latest stunt take a wrecking ball to Miley's career?


Reading all these comments is funny. Nobody limes Miley yet she is super rich n continues to be talked abt an u all took the time to weite abt her. She must be doing something. Many of u love lady gaga n she showed her ass in the vmas n has worn animal n meat n done so many crazy things. But since miley was disney, shes wrong or slutty, etc. during the vmas, robin thick had her rubbing all over him n hes married yet everyone talks abt her. Its just funny!!! Also just judge those who sin different from u. If u dont lime her, dont waste ur time on here, u keep her in the limelight.


Looking forward to the next episode from that slutty Miley....could it be any worse than what we've seen already?


I don't CARE how much $$ my daughter was getting paid... Doing THIS is dirty and reprehensible! And "Daddy" supporting his buck-nude daughter is NOT doing her ANY favors! She NEEDS to know the difference between right & wrong! Obviously, for Miley (aka "Destiny") that "life lesson" got MISSED while she was filming her Hannah TV Show! She ALSO missed out on "manners" as she has NONE; "Social Graces"; "Learning that Saying TOO MUCH is worst than NOT ENOUGH"; how to be a "REAL FRIEND/GIRLFRIEND"; learning that "being cool is really not important after HIGH SCHOOL"!; CLOTHES are for WEARING - not to be "stripped off"... Dang, I could go ON & ON!
It seems to me that this girl was no better than being "raised by WOLVES!" I hope that boyfriend/Fiancé runs - & FAST! He needs to get away from this "Time-bomb" before she/IT goes off! SPRINT SON, & DO NOT LOOK BACK OR FEEL RESPONSIBLE!

@ Angelina+Not+Jolie

Good God.Little Miss Perfect.So much advice from this perfectly mannered,perfectly clothed,perfectly cool and perfectly raised little Mean Girl.At least you realize you are not A.Jolie.You have no social or any grace at all. I can only imagine what you say about your 'friends'.You have Zero understanding of human behaviour nor an ounce of compassion .You sorely lack any analytical or comprehension skills.It's pretty obvious that you were parented by sociopaths.


There is something wrong with this Hillbilly Daddy of Miley's....I'll say this again, something went on with her when she was a child and Billy Ray defends her on this Wrecking Ball...Miley has a lousy voice and lousy personality...Give Miley awhile till she's 21 years old and see what happens then....I have no respect for the Cyrus family at all...They're all trash.....

@ Blind+Alley

I've said this too - he's the one that did the photo shoot with her when she was, what, 15? Wrapped in a sheet and laying across his lap? Not "normal" in my book.


Trash is trash, no matter how to try to spin it


I dunno, but knowing my dad saw me naked acting like a slut would have made me very uncomfortable. That isn't talent Billy, that's a cry for attention.


Billy Ray has to say flowing things about his daughter......She's paying his goddamned bills!


So far it's working and the hits to the video keep coming. She may be taking a wrecking ball to her career in the long run, but time will tell.


I wonder if they've ever had that girl's sinuses checked.


I watched Miley growing up, I love her as a artist she has such talent for those who says she don't apparently so or she wouldn't be a star still, weather you respect her or not what can you change it's not your life it's hers how is complaining about a nude video gonna help anything it's been done no taken it back do you really think Miley sits around bother by it no your the only ones. If you don't like her you can avoid watching her. I wouldn't do what she done but I'm not going to bash her to make myself feel important but are you?

@ Ali

You talk too fast on your comments....'Whether is the correct spelling....Weather is the temperature outside, such as, cold weather, hot weather and so on....I am more important than Miley, because I use my brain and I was brought right, thanks to my parents....Her dad is a bad father......

@ Blind+Alley

Did not realize there was a spell check on tHG.Did you Really say You were important than Miley?That's just so sad and childish.I'm so happy though that you were 'Brought Right' by your parents.You should check your own grammar first before you pick on Ali.
