Billy Ray Cyrus Apologizes for 'Explosive' Interview

Billy Ray Cyrus has apologized for making “explosive, and unintentionally so” statements in an interview with GQ magazine.

The 49-year-old entertainer and father of Miley Cyrus told People, “It is very important to me to work on mending my family right now.”

“My family is the most important thing I have, and we are working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier,” Billy Ray continued. “It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues.”

In the interview, Billy Ray said he was “scared” for Miley and that fame “destroyed [his] family.”

    I don’t blame Miley for being pissed at him. The media has always been critical of Miley and her family but they always showed what seemed to be a united front. Then the parents split up and all of a sudden Billy Ray wants to get on the “good” side at his family expense. They call a private life private for a reason dude. If he was really scared for Miley he should have called a family intervention, but no you went and pulled a Michael Lohan.

    well whatever, at the time he did that interview in december he was a desperate and depressed man and sad to see his daughter in trouble. good for them if they are working it out now, i wish them the best, divorce is not easy – for parents or kids.

    She’s a sl*t and a b**ch just like her mother. As for Billy, he is the typical slow-brained, stupid, backward hillbilly. I’ve never seen a smart one yet. He’s let these two c**ts control him long enough. He did right to stand up and say something, but is too stupid to even realize it. Miley is a little spoiled b**ch who doesn’t want to hear the truth; she’s another Lindsay Lohan in the making.

    anybody?anybody? Says:

    @kellers: completely agree!! he’s only backtracking because MIley probably threatened to cut off his allowance. it’s really pathetic that he lets himself be controlled by his bratty daughter. being rich doesn’t mean she can trample all over her parents. she’s the kid, not the other way around. instead of scolding him maybe she should try to work things out.she’s done her share of sh**

    I believe Billy Ray loves his daughter. He made mistakes, but overall Miley is still a good role model where it counts. Miley has a beautiful heart and I love her forever.

    Warren Says:

    @Hagar: I know. Miley in Haiti should be in the news more. Perez Hilton had it and he’s not so nice to Miley most of the time.
