In recent weeks Miley Cyrus has been attracting lots of unwanted attention because of her actions and somewhat crazy behaviour after her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, puts her behaviour down to her “evolving as an artist”. That’s putting it mildly Billy Ray!
Billy Ray was appearing on the Piers Morgan Tonight programme yesterday evening and he was trying his best to defend Miley. He said, “Miley’s smart enough to know that to come out of the shadows of ‘Hannah Montana,’ it really takes something extremely drastic, which 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.”
He went on to say, “She has risen to a whole new level. I thought I had seen it all, until these last couple of weeks. She’s an artist. She’s real. I think that what’s happened over the years, Miley has been reinventing her sound. She’s evolving as an artist herself. I think that all of what everyone is calling controversy now, that’s still my Miley.”
Any father in the world would defend their children to the hilt whatever they do, and Billy Ray Cyrus is certainly no different, but even he must be finding it hard sticking up for his daughter of late after her latest antics!
