Billy Ray Cyrus Takes On Hannah Montana And Satan

The MARCH issue of GQ MAGAZINE starts: "These days BILLY RAY CYRUS' life is imitating a bad country song: He's headed for a messy divorce, his record company just delayed his latest comeback, and his cherished 18-year-old daughter (MILEY) seems destined to rip bong hits at every party in the U.S.A. No wonder he's muttering about the end times."
BILLY RAY says the DISNEY TV show "HANNAH MONTANA" destroyed his family, causing his divorce and sending daughter MILEY CYRUS spinning out of control. He said he wished the show that launched his daughter to pop stardom had never happened.
"I hate to say it, but yes, I do. Yeah. I'd take it back in a second," CYRUS said. "For my family to be here and just be everybody OK, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I'd erase it all in a second if I could."
CYRUS says in the interview that he tried too hard to be a friend instead of a parent to his daughter. "I should have been a better parent," CYRUS said. "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."
He said his entire family was baptized before leaving TENNESSEE for LOS ANGELES to protect themselves from evil, and he believes SATAN is attacking his family.
"It's the way it is," CYRUS said. "There has always been a battle between good and evil. Always will be. You think, 'This is a chance to make family entertainment, bring families together ...' and look what it's turned into."
