Billy Ray Cyrus appeared on Good Morning America earlier today where he talked about his Hannah Montana comments.
He said, “The way they wrote it, Hannah Montana, you know, destroyed my family what I mean to say and I hope I said, was fame, the pressures of fame….fame can be a dangerous animal. And it’s a delicate thing. It’s funny. You know, when you get in this industry and…you strike so hard for that moment.”
He went on to say, “But, fame is dangerous. I did kind of approach being a dad as a friend. I was a great playmate. I mean, for teaching them how to camp and build fires and ride motorcycles and four wheelers, and horses, and all those fun kind of things.”
He added, “I was really good at that. As far as sitting down and doing Algebra and Science, the homework, I wasn’t very good at that. I look back on it and think, ‘You know what?’ Maybe, no doubt, I could have been a better dad.”
