Billy Ray Cyrus: Candidate for 2011′s Tacky Taste

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: Here it is, only February and already we have a strong candidate for this year’s Tacky Taste Awards: poor pitiful papa Billy Ray Cyrus, for the recent ‘GQ’ interview in which he blames “Hannah Montana” for pretty much all the ills in his life — including the end of his marriage and his concerns over the behavior of his 18-year-old daughter, Miley.
“The damn show destroyed my family,” he proclaims. He gripes that every time there was a scandal, like Miley’s awards show pole dancing or her sexually provocative ‘Vanity Fair’ photos, his daughter’s “handlers” had the nerve to put him before the press to take the heat. “‘Somebody’s shooting at Miley! Put the old man up there!’ Well, I took it, because I’m her daddy, and that’s what daddies do. ‘Okay, nail me to the cross, I’ll take it,” he whines.
Good daddies don’t allow their little girls be photographed topless cuddling a bed sheet at age 15, or join them for creepy couple-style shots that hint at incest. Billy Ray’s mea culpa in ‘GQ’ is all about how he should have been more of a parent and less of a friend to Miley, but doesn’t include anything about his responsibility in matters like photos in which he was personally involved.
To many observers, his true priorities have often shown through the thin veneer of a family man performance. This is the guy who tended to frown, sigh, purse his lips, become clipped or otherwise give evidence of his distaste whenever press asked Miley-related questions — instead of Billy Ray-related questions. Even in the best of times. He rode the young talent’s coattails into an obviously fervently-desired fresh wave of fame. And now that his “Hannah Montana” ride is over, he’s in ‘GQ,’ pointing fingers at everyone else for Miley’s excesses.

Billy Ray Cyrus defended for parenting skills with Miley

HollywoodNews.com: Billy Ray Cyrus seems to be beating himself up over how things have been going with his daughter, Miley Cyrus, but some people are stepping up to defend him.
Dr. Drew Pinsky told Joy Behar that he believes Billy Ray may have struggled in having multiple roles in his daughter’s life as a friend, parent and costar, states the Los Angeles Times. “That is very confusing. That creates boundary problems for a child,” Pinsky said about what has led up to this point.
But Pinsky doesn’t think that Billy Ray knew what was going to be the result: “But I don’t think he really understood how he had adulterated his parenting function … he probably had difficulties stepping up and asserting himself.”

Disney not impressed with Billy Ray Cyrus’ comments?

HollywoodNews.com: It’s starting to sound like Disney and the Cyrus family are not exactly on good terms since Miley Cyrus’ show, ‘Hannah Montana,’ just recently ended.
Miley has seemed to make it clear that she wanted to transition and Disney apparently doesn’t think she will necessarily have a future without them, states The Hollywood Reporter. Her next two films are not with Disney.

Miley Cyrus doing “Montana” for Disney “destroyed my family,” Billy Ray says

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: In a very candid interview, Billy Ray Cyrus says he regrets letting his teenage daughter, Miley, star on Disney’s “Hannah Montana” program and wishes that the show never existed.
“It destroyed my family,” Cyrus told GQ of the enormously popular television program, which spawned movies and concert tours for leading lady Miley.
“I’ll tell you right now — the damn show destroyed my family. And I sit there and go, ‘Yeah, you know what? Some gave all.’ It is my motto, and guess what? I have to eat that one. I some-gave-all’d it all right. I some-gave-all’d it while everybody else was going to the bank. It’s all sad.”
When asked if Cyrus wishes the show never happened, he confesses, “Yeah. I’d take it back in a second. For my family to be here and just be everybody okay, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I’d erase it all in a second if I could.”
Cyrus’ personal life does appear to be in disarray. He’s recently divorced, and Miley seems to be bouncing from one tabloid scandal to the next. Daddy Cyrus takes some of the blame for that, while deflecting some of it back at Miley’s handlers.
“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!’ Well, I took it, because I’m her daddy, and that’s what daddies do. ‘Okay, nail me to the cross, I’ll take it,’” he said. “All those people around, they used me every time. It became so obvious that, man, no matter what happens, they’re going to put you up there and let you take the bullet.”

Michael Lohan offers fatherly advice to Billy Ray Cyrus

HollywoodNews.com: Michael Lohan seems to think highly of himself when it comes to parenting and apparently thought he could offer Billy Ray Cyrus some advice in regard to Miley Cyrus’ recent behavior involving a bong.
Michael wanted to make it clear that divorce can affect children and everything needs to be handled carefully, reports PopEater. [D]ivorce can work if both parents try to get along and don’t use their children as pawns,” Michael advised Billy Ray in regard to his divorce with Tish.
However, Michael seems to think Miley is only acting this way due to the divorce, but many would believe that her behavior changed long before there were reportedly marital problems.

Billy Ray Cyrus seems bummed about Miley’s bong activities

HollywoodNews.com: It sounds like Billy Ray Cyrus is responding to the recent video of Miley Cyrus smoking salvia out of a bong, and this time he isn’t exactly supporting her decision.
Cyrus seems to confess his disappointment over Twitter: “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.”
While he doesn’t directly reference the video of Miley smoking salvia, which is legal in California, it seems pretty clear that he is talking about it. In the video, Miley appears to get a bit high from the natural herb.
