MI­LEY’S NEW SONG HOMAGE TO HER DAD

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Singer Mi­ley Cyrus (left) says her new sin­gle, In­spired, was partly writ­ten for her dad, singer Billy Ray Cyrus (right), be­cause he played a huge part in her ca­reer. The 24-year-old says her father has al­ways been there for her, even when she took to the stage for her con­tro­ver­sial VMAs per­for­mance in 2013, re­ported Bill­board. “You know, my dad is a huge part in this, a huge part in who I am. You know how maybe some peo­ple have seen me as not a fam­ily per­son? But I love my fam­ily! I’m re­ally close with my dad. If you no­ticed, he was stand­ing be­side me at the VMA’s when I was wear­ing like, a thong! My dad was like four peo­ple away, and he was like, ‘This is creepy!’” Mi­ley says. The Mal­ibu hit­maker is proud of her father for not for­get­ting his roots. “He’s al­ways in a baseball hat, in sneak­ers, he’s not in cow­boy boots or hat all the time. He doesn’t play the game. And, I think, that has come from him hav­ing pride and be­ing like, ‘I’m not go­ing to change who I am, to fit in into a coun­try cat­e­gory,’” says Mi­ley.
