Proud papa!

Billy Ray Cyrus just dished on daughter Miley's new sober lifestyle, and it sounds like clean living is suiting her! We have to admit she does look a lot more healthy in her new "Malibu" music video, which she released today.

"As a dad, I see Miley really just functioning on, like, a figure and a joy for life. I don't know how to break it down more than just the fact that I see a joy in her spirit and something coming from within that is just pure beauty, if you will," he told Entertainment Tonight.

"I think she just found… she's firing off all cylinders. Her thoughts, her instincts, everything is at the top of its game. Sometimes you have to clear out the junk. And then you realize what's most important. Whatever is going on, it's working for her," he added.

In case you missed it, the "Wrecking Ball" songstress recently divulged that she'd given up marijuana and alcohol.

"I haven't smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever [gone without it]. I'm not doing drugs, I'm not drinking, I'm completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do," she told Rolling Stone.

Maybe Miley and Brad Pitt should get together and have tea?
