Billy Ray Cyrus: 'Hannah Montana' destroyed family

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 his entire family was baptized before leaving Tennessee for Los Angeles to protect themselves from 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."

If you keep telling your daughter that crap she most probably will start hating herself as much as her critics do, which would eventually result in a self-fulfilling prophecy of self destruction

Don't worry Billy Ray. Your daughter is definitely no Kurt Cobain...or Michael Jackson for that matter. In 10 years she'll be another washed-up, forgotten pop singer who has to whore her own children out for a chance to get back in the spotlight too.

I read about the afterlife

Please do not ever compare your daughter to Kurt Cobain ever again.

And salvia? Please.

We've come for your daughter, Billy.

Don't worry, her career will expire like a quart of milk sometime between 21 and 30. That's when you might finally understand the difference between product and talent in the music industry.

Hey Billy, look at where Britney Spears or Lindsey Lohan are right now, and that's where Miley is headed, and it's your fault she's headed there for whoring her out to the entertainment industry.

And if you're such a fine, upstanding Christian fighting the devil, why did you have her appear half naked in that Vanity Fair photo shoot?

2/18/2011 6:35:02 AM


Her only problem is that she is related to Billy Ray Cyrus...

2/18/2011 6:36:16 AM


I thought Mike and anna went naturally?

I thought god took people from the world when it was their time?

2/18/2011 6:38:40 AM


Getting wet and muttering words didn't do squat to protect your family? Whoever could have imagined.

Whatever you say Mr. One-hit Wonder who lives vicariously through his children.

Tell you what, Billy. If you think show business is so goddamn evil, maybe you should have, you know, KEPT HER OUT OF SHOW BUSINESS.

If your 16-year-old daughter is pole dancing for you and a bunch of other men old enough to be her father, the problem is not Satan. The problem is that you're a shitty parent.

Christianity: giving people metaphysical excuses for their own failures for two thousand years.

2/18/2011 7:12:53 AM

I was agreeing with you up till the whole satan thing....

2/18/2011 7:14:17 AM


Achy-Breaky gravy trains been decommisioned, don't be to upset Billy, you were there for her biggest earnning years she'll ever have.

That's not Satan, that's called the price of fame. Once you're a celebrity you get no privacy, you have to work hard to continue to live up to the expectations of your fans (who will always find SOMETHING to bitch about anyway), and you have to go for all sorts of promotions, signings, ad campaigns, tours, etc. in addition to doing your actual job. It can drain you both physically and emotionally to the point where it ends up killing you. However, Miley Cyrus is far more likely to simply end up being washed up and forgotten than driven to her death especially since generic, young, female pop stars are a dime a dozen.

I love how Christians think that they never do anything wrong, it's just the devil attacking them. The start of her downward spiral doesn't have anything to do with the fact that she's a wild, out of control teenager, it's all Satan's fault.

I guess that baptizing didn't do any good? It's almost as if God wasn't listening, or wasn't there in the first place.

I hate to see her ruin her life, but in a way it's satisfying to see self-righteous Christians slide into a life of "evil." But they still never blame themselves. The devil always gets all the blame and God always gets the credit.

@mad the swine:

"If your 16-year-old daughter is pole dancing for you and a bunch of other men old enough to be her father, the problem is not Satan. The problem is that you're a shitty parent. "

I am pretty positive the Bible approves that kind of behavior... There was this story with the daughters of Lot.

Meh, because, well, Hannah Montana sucks.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Well, that was certainly a wasted baptism. Can you get your money back? You might need it now that your cash cow daughter has defected to the satanic side.

2/18/2011 8:10:48 AM


There has always been a battle between reason and delusion. Always will be.

2/18/2011 8:13:28 AM


The money quote was how one of Satan's "attacks" occurred when Miley pointed out a sign saying ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY ATHEISTS UNITED.

I wouldn't wish death or even La Vida Lohan on anyone, so I hope Miley escapes the business and her father before they both screw with her head too much.

You made "Achey Breaky Heart", Billy. If Satan exists, you owe your entire career to him.

2/18/2011 8:35:31 AM


I always thought that show was evil, but not for the reasons you think.

Fucking mass-marketing.

"Billy Ray Cyrus: 'Hannah Montana' destroyed family"

Billy Ray Virus: 'Acky Kakky Dance' destroyed Country & Western.

But as I always say: Country music started & finished with Johnny Cash.


"You made "Achey Breaky Heart", Billy. If Satan exists, you owe your entire career to him."

Two Words: Bill Hicks.

'Suck Satan's cock!'

Why do I have a feeling this is more because she's an adult and doesn't have to be his meal ticket anymore than it does with Satan?

2/18/2011 9:20:40 AM

Miley doesn't seem as irritating as her Father. Just sayin' I know there seems to be a lot of Hannah Montana hate, but c'mon she cannot be that bad.
