Billy Ray Cyrus Stands Up for Miley, Sort of Compares Daughter to Johnny Cash

by at . Comments

Unlike Sinead O'Connor, Billy Ray Cyrus is a big believer in everything his daughter is doing these days.

With Miley Cyrus engaged in a heated back-and-forth with O'Connor - calling Sinead out for her history of mental illness after that artist advised Miley to remain clothed - father Billy Ray appeared this week on the new Arsenio Hall show.

And he once again stood up for his 20-year old child.

Billy Ray said Miley is "smart" and has "thought this thing out in advance," in regard to her wild, attention-grabbing antics.

He also remarked the she "grew up around the greats," modeling herself after icons such as Johnny Cash. We can't say we saw that comparison coming.

Did Johnny Cash ever thrust his crotch into an iced tea can? If so, it's slipped our memory.

Following his Q&A with Hall, Cyrus performed two songs with Fred Durst and subsequently Tweeted:

"On the night the U.S. Government shut down… rocked with Fred Durst until 3AM. Guess everything's gonna be all right."

It really is, people. Who cares that you're out of work and/or can't visit a national park today because Congress can't come to an agreement that would allow it to actually function?

Billy Ray Cyrus rocked out with Fred Durst!


I have lost all respect for Billy. For a parent to be ok with what Miley is doing shows a complete failure of parenting. You can both just go away now. Bye bye

@ GG

What do you want him to do?
Punch her out? She is 20 years
old. He is doing what a good Dad
does, standing up for her.He takes all this negative garbage like a man & does not abandon
her.I never hear her mother say a
word.The haters won't let this
'Miley' thing go (or tHG) so Billy
continues to defend.


Billy Ray = Pimp


but johnny didn't shave his scrotch!!

@ abe

Waxed.BTW,how do you know
he didn't?


Billy Ray is out of his fu*king mind. Johnny cash wrote and sang more music in a day than that "noodle" will in a lifetime. Billy Ray knows that his daughter has more dirt on him than most know- that's what this is all about.

Agreed!!!!! Billy Ray Cyrus is such a fucking tool and such a fucking idiot!!!!! And, wife/mom Tish ain't too swift herself. LOL!!!!!

@ Sims



He is not a parent. He talks about her voice and songwriting - her problem is tongue ass and what she says. If the truth be known he needs a parent.
