Billy Ray Cyrus knows a little about fame, and the “Achy Breaky Heart” singer is VERY proud of his daughter for not letting fame “poison her.”
In a new interview with E! News, the 51-year-old country star shared that he’s happy with their current relationship, and how proud he is of his ‘lil Miley:
“I like right now just being her daddy and her friend. I like where our relationship is at right now,” Billy Ray said. “I’m very proud of her.”
In 2011, Cyrus was briefly estranged from his daughter and he thought that she had the wrong kind of people hanging around. Well, I guess he feels better about her life now, because Billy Ray really pushes how chummy the two are…
“There’s two sides to the sword, and fame is a very dangerous thing,” Billy Ray said. “So you handle it with respect and caution, step by step, day by day. Knowing that, for me, I had a friend to talk to—he was called my dad—and that’s what I try to be for Miley.”
Lately, Cyrus has also been putting in his two cents about his daughter’s relationship with fiance Liam Hemsworth, however, these two cents are a little vague…
“I didn’t know the answer,” Billy Ray recently told ABC News of whether or not his daughter will make it down the aisle. “They’re young. They’re kids. The great news is, they’re great friends. They’re really, really good friends. If you end up getting married, that’s your business too, you know?”
Hmmm, I guess?Come on, Cyrus, we need DIRT. Not just daddy/daughter banter!
