Billy Ray Cyrus sang a different tune on Wednesday's GMA, saying "I love Hannah Montana. I love Disney. I wouldn't change anything."
Then, from backstage, you heard "AHEM". And Billy Ray said, "Um, and oh yeah. Miley Cyrus is the most talented singer in the universe."
So it looks like Miley's doing a great job of straightening her dad up--a feat I can only imagine she achieved by threatening to have his aviator shades and necklaces taken away.
Because not too long ago, Billy Ray was blaming "that damn show" for ruining his family. He's now saying that during the time of the interview, he was "surrounded in darkness", and that's why he chose to blame the show.
I imagine Miley Cyrus runs a tighter household than Stalin did a country. In a month's time, she's called off her parents divorce, forced her father to shut his mouth, and redeemed herself by appearing on SNL. That's "pretty cool"!
Anytime a star gets media flack, all they have to do is schedule a quick SNL appearance, and everything will be fine. Don't be surprised if we see Chris Brown hosting soon.
As far as being a dad, Cyrus says he could've been better.
"I did kind of approach being a dad as a friend," he said. "I was a great playmate. I mean, for teaching [my children] how to camp and build fires and ride motorcycles and four-wheelers, and horses, and all those fun kind of things. I was really good at that."
