Billy Ray Cyrus chats with the latest issue of GQ Magazine, and Miley's dad reveals that he's worried about his daughter. "I'm scared for [Miley]," says the 49-year-old country star. "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. At least get her out of danger. I want to get her sheltered from the storm. Stop the insanity just for a minute."
Billy Ray said he refused to attend her 18th birthday party because it was "wrong", adding, "It was for 21 years old and up... I said, 'This whole thing's falling apart up there and they just want to blame all of this stuff on you again.' I'm staying out of it."
Billy Ray made note of the late Anna Nicole Smith and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and said, "I'm concerned about Miley. I think that [Cobain's] world was just spinning so fast and he had so many people around him that didn't help him. Like Anna Nicole Smith--you could see that train wreck coming ... I should have been a better parent. 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."
Billy Ray even goes as far as saying he wishes Miley was never cast in Disney's Hannah Montana, boldly stating that it has "destroyed my family -- the damn show destroyed my family. It's all sad ...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."
Woah! Wonder what Miley thinks about this?!
Is Billy Ray just a concerned parent or is he pulling a Michael Lohan?
