Billy Ray Cyrus on Parents Television Council That Condemned Miley Cyrus' Performance
Opposing Views ^ | 08/28/2013 | Michael Allen

Posted on 08/28/2013 12:12:43 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

Billy Ray Cyrus is on the advisory board of the Parents Television Council, which slammed his daughter Miley Cyrus for her ultra-sexy performance on the Video Music Awards on MTV Sunday night.

Ironically, the Parents Television Council says its mission is to "protect children from graphic and gratuitous programming and to restore responsibility to the entertainment industry," notes the Daily Mail.

Former BET network executive Paul Porter, who is part of the Parents Television Council, stated: "The Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke performance simply substituted talent with sex."

Dan Isett, public policy director for the Parents Television Council, said: "MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate "twerking" in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?"

However, Billy Ray Cyrus told Entertainment Tonight: "She's still my little girl and I'm still her Dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change. Of course I'll always be here for Miley. Can't wait see her when she gets home."

During a 2007 interview with  Glenn Beck, Cyrus said Miley "has good head on her shoulders."

I bet he can't wait. If she were my daughter -

Poor Billy Ray. What else can he say? "Yeah my daughter's a slut - but I love her"?

Hey Billy Ray, she’s just daddy’s little skank. How sweet.

Billy Ray set her up with a “tasteful nude photo shoot” when she was 15. He is not an innocent bystander in this.

Is she still a minor? Does he manage her career? I don’t know those details.

She’s obviously a cash cow for him, if so!

Apparently being famous is more important than being a reputable person for some of these young (and some older) performers. They will do anything for attention, even demean themselves on national TV. It is very sad, but she is young and maybe one day she will live up to her potential.

An even bigger obscenity on that show was when Kanye West was compared to Jimi Henrdix. Like comparing Al Sharpton to MLK.

Sexy??? Sexual perhaps. Disgusting? Certainly! But definately NOT sexy!

“Ultra-sexy?”

See, that’s the thing we’ve lost, and I see it even in my thirties. “Sexy” is the suggestion of sex: Gilda’s glove, Frank’s lyric “it was a very good year for blue blooded girls who lived up the stair / with their perfumed hair / and it came undone / when I was 21...” Sexy is clear eyes on a natural woman, a slight, knowing smile, the whiff of lovemaking in the cut of a dress, a gesture -

Sexy is NOT a rubber-coated piglet with it’s tongue out, gyrating like a frantic victim of some neuro-muscular disorder.

Part of me thinks this was just her making fun of Hollywierd and hip-hop by acting more outrageous on their terms than they do.

Beyond the obvious revolting parts of the act, it sucked. That tongue thing? The stuffed animals? She looked and acted high. She wasn’t really even dancing.

I was mortified and embarrassed both for her and by her.

I see a reality show in the making:
it will be called “Achy Breaky Heart: Being Miley’s Dad”
it will be followed by the new Bobby Deen cooking show:
“Not My Mama’s Son”.

After watching her performance again without the sound I’m thinking it was a gross satire state of the currant pop culture especial the corporate controlled music section.

How void Billy’s world must be. Of course you love her, but you don’t soft peddle what she did. She vulgarizes life itself, she has been perverted and if her perversion perverts another 1,000,000,000 kids just how wonderful is that... yah, she’s got a good head on her shoulders, um-hu...

I heard that on the news this morning. I didn't need the oxford dictionary definition - I got the definition from my 15yo daughter yesterday: vulgar dancing to what some people call music.

Is Mrs. Cyrus dead or divorced from Mr. Parent-of-the-Year? If she's still among us, it would be interesting to get her take on this. If Billy Ray Cyrus honestly thinks his little girl did nothing wrong on national TV, then he is a lousy parent who has absolutely no standards of decency. I guess we're lucky HE doesn't stroll down the street in his underwear, sticking his tongue out and shaking his butt.

He is on a par with the parents of the "When white people piss black people off part 1" beauties.

On one hand she’s getting what she’s asked for. On the other, I feel sorry for her. She’s 20 now but for almost half her short life all she’s heard is praise and adulation, given whatever she wanted whenever she wanted it. Complete and total slavish devotion from Disney, the entertainment industry etc..

Seems to me she’s in meltdown since she’s too old to play the cute kiddie on tv and no other options seem to be working out. All in all this isn’t much different than what Charlie Sheen did a couple years ago.

I sure don’t feel sorry for Billy Ray. I blame him. And his wife.

Or Internet! From what I can tell, the way the clip has been seen most is via YOUTUBE. And the ones watching it are soooo outraged.

MTV is blocked in our house along with a whole lot of other channels. We had killed our cable but have it until college football season is over.

There wa snothing “sexy” about that “performance”. It was straight up soft-core porn. Beyond that I wonder if anyone is targetting MTV at all? Someone had to know what both of these “entertainers” were going to do?
That kid singing should have his behind kicked too.

That's all well and good, but you're still putting money in MTV's pocket every time you pay that cable bill.

Bur he is such a wonderful dad, he always had her best interests at heart.

Oh wait, she can make how much money, never mind.

Daddy is just another blood sucking money who*e.

His main concern now is that she will crash and burn and fade into has been world or that she will overdose and he will lose his cash cow.

The photographer just shoulda' told her to put her tongue back in for the photos.

"I'm a professional trying to get a good photo of you, you little skank and I don't want your tongue in my photo portfolio and I don't want my fellow photog professionals making fun of me.

So cut it out until I get a decent photo and then you can put your tongue anywhere you want just not around me."

But, the way it goes now, he probably said "more tongue, more tongue."

---------------------------------------->

Mrs. Cyrus, Miley's mom was in the audience and gave her little girl a Standing O.

Parents go back and forth re: separation and divorce talks.

Miley supposedly is all torn up about the divorce talk but has taken her mom's side.
