Indeed. But perhaps he is powerless?

Ha!

    Why does anyone think Billy Ray Cyrus cares what his daughter does?

    • TocksNedlog

      He cares about how much money she’s bringing in to help support his one-hit wonder ass.

      • bicentennialguy

        I have always thought that!

      • thetreyman

        that’s a bit harsh. do you think Achy Breaky Heart was his only hit? if you do then you would be wrong. it may have been his biggest hit but not his only one. i’m sure he has done quite well on his own.

    • Clete Torres

      Most parents do care how and what their kids are doing to protect the family name. Note that I said MOST.

      The obvious exceptions only prove my statement.

    • Frustrated Teacher

      At this point, she is an adult so he may have very little influence or control over her. Managers usually rule.

    • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

      I have to say that I do, but not to spite you or anything like that.

      It’s more of a feeling that when he said he regretted allowing Miley in showbiz at a young age.

      As far as the money goes, well, Miley is an adult and able to make her own contracts. Not sure how he benefits, but I think he thinks he doesn’t know what else he can do because Miley is an adult.

      • Steve_J

        I was thinking of how he handled his, 15 year old, daughter’s topless photo session with Annie Liebvoitz. He was there at the beginning but left before the topless shooting started, her mother and grandmother left before that also.

      I’m sure Billy Ray has tons of regrets, but I find it hard to believe not caring is one of them.

      Ok, this is a video he made (back in 2007 when Miley was just starting out), but the home movies in it are real. Does this look like a dad who doesn’t care?

      A lot of kids go through rebellious phases no matter how good of parents they have, Miley just happens to be going through it more publicly. I think the true test will be how long it will last and what she is like when she comes out of it.

    • Damien Johnson

      Billy Ray is actually on record saying that he feels Satan is attacking his family.

    Miley has gone into full “the only way to be as popular as Madonna is to act just like her” mode.
    Women, ‘grabbing the power’ and ‘controlling their own lives’ and ‘shaping their destinies’ by acting like whores.
    You’ve come a long way, baby! From the back alley to doing the same thing out in public where everyone can see how totally morally bankrupt you have become.
    Progress!!!

  • Jake Wilde

    We give her a platform and worth by discussing it. I turned on a documentary and lamented at the moral base just not being taught the same as 40 years ago.

    • walterc

      My thoughts. The more we talk about her, the more we fall into her plan. As an actress in the 40’s (Marlene Deitrich maybe?) once said, “I don’t care what you say about me, just spell my name right.”

      To these people, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

      • Jake Wilde

        You see how we are able to discuss moral dilemma without giving it too much face? The emulation of celebrity is very dangerous to society.

        • walterc

          Agreed. It’s a fine line between discussing it to condemn it and discussing it to spotlight it as behavior to emulate by our youth.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    I guess I don’t freak out about this stuff like a lot of people do. It seems like every pop princess goes through this phase where they act slutty and nasty then in a few years they grow up and have a more mature image. The thing that offends me most is how obvious and cliche it is.

    • nc

      This is actually part of the problem. Even good and decent young people (you are young to me, Ben) like yourself have been so marinated in this degraded culture since childhood, you are numbed to it.

      People who didn’t grow up with this “freak out” because we remember a time that, while not perfect, didn’t put this kind of thing on public display. Slutty and nasty always existed, and always will. But it shouldn’t be celebrated as mainstream entertainment. Keep it from the kids.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        That’s true and I’m not condoning it either. On the same token I think that older generations like yourself(and not necessarily you yourself) shut themselves off from the culture so these young people watching this do not get to see opposing viewpoints on the matter without them sounding preachy and out of touch. That’s why I think Malkin is right about this, we either get involved in the culture or lose it.

        • nc

          In theory, I agree with you (and MM), but the truth is I don’t have the stomach for it. Honestly.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            I know it is a generational thing, that is why young conservatives need to get involved. We all have our part to do.

          • nc

            We’re counting on great young men like you and Damien and Gary and so many others here to be positive role models.

            The yutes that most need our advice don’t listen to us geezer and geezerettes anyway. : )

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            ha ha thanks, but no matter what it seems like younger people listen to older people more than they let on. Sometimes it just takes us longer to listen to it 😉

          • nc

            You give me hope!!!

          • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

            Exactly, how many youngsters listen to us oldsters anyway, whether related to them or not?
            If we try to speak and act hip, they’d call it pandering. If we act outraged, we’re told to loosen up. Can’t win, all we can be is who we are and offer our opinion; they dont have to learn from us they’re still semi-free to make their own mistakes 😉
            But to be fair, this issue is not new with the Millennials either: their parents the Boomers had the “never trust anyone over 30” thing

          • Damien Johnson

            !!! Sweet! I got name-dropped (in a positive fashion)!

          • nc

            Oh, did you think I was talking about YOU?

            Ha Ha, just kidding, OF COURSE I WAS!

  • Independent

    What is up with her tongue? She looks like she’s having some sort of seizure!

  • forgetyoutooo

    The only thing worse than an attention hungry drug addict is her attention hungry female parent/best friend. Hope Betty Ford holds open a bed for them both.

  • neoface

    That girl or her agent learned well from Madonna!!! There is no publicity that is bad publicity. She is the talk of the town!

    • Frustrated Teacher

      In Hollywood, the saying is, “There is no such thing as BAD publicity”. That seems to be heavily in play here.

      • thetreyman

        you should tell that to mel gibson.

        • Frustrated Teacher

          I would say he is the exception there…but then the media castigated him 24/7 about all of his screw-ups while many other Hollywood types get a pass (thinking of a Baldwin here…).

  • J_W_C_NM

    It’s hard to tell a kid that has made $100 million bucks before they could drive that they’re doing something wrong. More than fifty years after womyn’s lib, t & a is still where the money is.

    • Zach Smith

      After a few visits with a judge and few stints in rehab, the message will begin to get through.

      • SpaceRacer423

        tell that to Lindsey Lohan, Todd Bridges, Leigh Garrett, Danny Bondacue…….
        Zoe Spears must be thanking her lucky stars she got knocked up at 15 and had to leave television.

        • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

          I thought Todd Bridges had cleaned up his act though? Clean and sober now and IIRC found God too? Same for Robert Downey Jr except with him I’m not sure about the God part….
          See they CAN do it if they WANT to…

  • 912er

    How come none of these sites report about what child stars such as Candace Cameron did last Sunday…….Taking her kids to church not cool enough for you?

    • https://twitter.com/WSPISFA WSPISFA

      Probably because there’s nothing mock-worthy about DJ Tanner.
      But you’re right, there’s still a lot of former child stars (all ages, all generations) who grew into relatively normal adults, they usually lead quiet normal lives with real jobs like the rest of us, and aren’t begging for attention by doing outrageous crap like Miley, LiLo, Britney, etc.

    Honestly I’m not sure I want to give daddy BIlly Ray a pass on this one. I mean, how do I know that he isn’t behind all this, or at least supports it? Has he spoken out against it?

    I seem to recall a fairly bizarre photo shoot of him and Miley (Vanity Fair, I think) that everyone seems to have forgotten. I found it quite creepy, so much so that I don’t want to share that picture. So I’ll share one just like it that I found less creepy. http://www.dailyyonder.com/files/u2/red-state-boys-340.jpg
