    Billy Ray Cyrus: "Hannah Montana Destroyed My Family"

    Billy Ray Cyrus: 'Hannah Montana' destroyed family - Yahoo! News

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. Billy Ray Cyrus says the Disney TV show "Hannah Montana" destroyed his family, causing his divorce and sending daughter Miley Cyrus spinning out of control.
    In a December interview published in the Feb. 22 issue of GQ Magazine, Cyrus said he wished the show that launched his daughter to pop stardom had never happened.

    "I hate to say it, but yes, I do. Yeah. I'd take it back in a second," Cyrus said. "For my family to be here and just be everybody OK, 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 and his wife, Tish, filed for divorce in October.

    Billy Ray Cyrus said when he asked about the rumored video footage of his daughter smoking from a bong at her 18th birthday party in December, he was told "it was none of my business." He initially refused to attend the party, saying "it was wrong" to have it in a bar.

    Cyrus, a native of Flatwoods, Ky., had his own success as a country and gospel singer beginning in the early 1990s with his huge hit "Achy Breaky Heart."

    He told the magazine that he is scared for his daughter and compared her current path to those of other stars whose lives ended tragically, including Kurt Cobain, Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson.

    He said the Cyruses and their six children were all baptized before leaving Tennessee for Los Angeles to inure themselves against evil and he believes Satan is attacking his family.

    "It's the way it is," Cyrus said. "There has always been a battle between good and evil. Always will be. You think, 'This is a chance to make family entertainment, bring families together...' and look what it's turned into."

    "I mean, the money is great and all, and I'd be some poor white trash instead of some rich white trash, but still, Disney ruined our lives!!"

    People make bad choices, and get into drugs and other things, whether they're rich or poor.

    Wealth might certainly make it easier, but it still comes down to personal choice, and personal responsibility.

    Whatever poor choices have been made by the family, the fault lies with them.

    Having said that, drinking and smoking pot at age eightteen is not necesscarily indicative of a troubled teen, it's not really that uncommon. She might grow out of it like most people do.

    Billy's career ended and he has been vicariously riding his daughter's and now that his lack of parenting skills have ruined Miley's childhood and any respect in the entertainment industry, he has to blame someone. And, blaming Disney just shows how ignorant and trashy he and his family truly are. Miley just became a product of her upbringing.
