    Re: Miley Cyrus: Party(ing) in the USA...

    I'm not sure what to think of this. Biting the hand that made your family jillionaires? Distancing himself from Miley? A public intervention?

    Hannah Montana destroyed family, Miley's dad says | Reuters

    (Reuters) - The father of teen star Miley Cyrus said the Disney TV show "Hannah Montana" that made her a worldwide star, in truth destroyed his family, and he blamed it for sending his daughter out of control.

    Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus said he was scared for 18 year-old Miley after a series of scandals including an infamous video last year which showed her getting high on the psychedelic herb salvia.

    And he said he wished that "Hannah Montana" had never happened.

    "The damn show destroyed my family," Cyrus told GQ magazine in an interview for its March edition. "I'd take it back in a second. For my family to be here and just everybody be 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, 49, played father to his daughter on "Hannah Montana" -- a wholesome Disney Channel show about a normal teenager by day but a singing star at night -- that launched Miley Cyrus as a teen idol and top-selling recording artist.

    "Hannah Montana" launched in 2006 and ended after four seasons in January 2011.

    Last October, the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer filed for divorce from his wife Tish after a 17-year marriage.

    Cyrus compared his daughter's current situation to celebrities like Kurt Cobain, Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson, who all died in tragic circumstances.

    "I'm scared for her," Cyrus said of Miley. "She's got a lot of people around her that's putting her in a great deal of danger. I know she's 18 but I still feel like, as her daddy, I'd like to try to help. Take care of her just a little bit, to at least get her out of danger.

    "I want to get her sheltered from the storm. Stop the insanity for a minute. When you go through what she's been through, it takes a beating on you," he said.

    Cyrus carried out the GQ interview in December, shortly after home video of Miley Cyrus hit the Internet smoking the hallucinogenic herb salvia at a private party with friends just days after her 18th birthday.

    The herb is not illegal in California, but the images of Miley Cyrus giggling about tripping capped a year in which she has thrown aside her once squeaky-clean image with raunchy pop videos and scantily-clad live performances.

    Miley Cyrus last week expressed regret over the salvia incident, saying she had made a mistake and had disappointed her mostly young fans. She is due to host TV sketch show "Saturday Night Live" for the first time next month.

    Billy Ray Cyrus, best known for his 1990s country music albums, said he wished he had been a better parent to Miley and disciplined her more, rather than wanting to be her friend.

    "I should have said, 'Enough is enough -- it's getting dangerous and somebody's going to get hurt'. I should have but I didn't. Honestly I didn't know the ball was out of bounds until it was way up in the stands somewhere," he said.

    I find it to be "celebs just being celebs". I really find them becoming the Lohans more and more every day. I'm sure he's concerned for her, but there are many ways to go about it rather than talking to the press even if he's been "blocked".

    The thing is I'm not sure I believe him. Its SO easy to say it once he's not getting the paycheck anymore. Even in December, the last episode was already in the can.

    On the other hand its nice to at least see confirmation finally that he actually recognizes that she's out of control. It took Lindsay Lohan's family many many more years (and even then that selfish cow Dinah simply made excuses).

    I almost didn't read to the end of the article because I hate the blame game. I was pleased to see that he did take some responsibility.

    I heard on the radio that Billy Ray Cyrus can't even get in touch with his daughter or has a hard time reaching his daughter because her "people" won't allow him to contact her.

    The Disney child star system is notorious for using up children then dumping their empty, unprepared shells into the adult world. Why the states child protective services hasnt looked into this is beyond me. The money Disney makes off of these manipulate children is astronimical. From Brittney to Miley the level they are getting away with as far as the destruction of children in the Disney studio system is staggering.

    Yes, but parents do have a responsibility here and they are so wrapped up in the fame & $$$ of the kids they are totally a waste. Disney can only have their children to use and manipulate if the parents allow them. Fame and money are apparently powerful enough motivators to convince parents to dismiss the need for true parenting.

    Anybody who's raised a teenager would not be surprised at this development. Miley did everything she was told to do for many years. It's time to rebel. She's 18 and a little later than most teens but not unexpected. If Mr and Mrs Cyrus taught her what they should have during her childhood, there's hope that after she finishes rebelling, she'll be fine.

    IMO, any parent who puts their kid through that kind of childhood, probably didn't ensure that she got her priorities in the right place.
    She's just trying to figure out who she really is rather than who they told her she was.

    It seems to me that Disney was the one thing in Miley's life that was stable and looking out for her. The more she pulled away from Disney, the worse things became for her. It was the parents who allowed and encouraged her to behave like a 21 year-old when she was 15. Disney encouraged her to be wholesome, age appropiate and not behaving like a stripper in performances. How was that wrong?

    Miley also didn't have many rules of conduct growing up. Her dad has bragged often over the years how she was a friend, not child and he trusted her to make her own rules. So when she decided to live in her own guest house with live-in boyfriend, it was A okay with mom and dad. She really had no limits.

    Remember all the complaining by Miley and dad about how Disney was trying to control her and requiring her to stay a child? Now the story has changed? Please. Just accept responsibility and move on. She's an adult now.
