Billy Ray Cyrus Backtracks on Controversial 'Hannah Montana' GQ Comments (VIDEO)

Billy Ray Cyrus Backtracks on 'Hannah Montana' CommentsOn 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Billy Ray Cyrus backtracked on comments he made in GQ Magazine where he stated that 'Hannah Montana' "destroyed" his family by sending daughter Miley on a self-destructive spiral, and by leading to his divorce from wife Tish.

"I love 'Hannah Montana.' I love Disney. I love our fans that's been with us throughout this whole show. This has been an incredible journey," said Billy Ray, in marked contrast to his GQ interview. "That didn't tear my family apart. Now, fame? Fame is a different animal."

Billy Ray also said he "dropped the divorce" from estranged wife Tish in an attempt to keep his family intact. "I'm not divorced. I dropped the divorce. I wanted to put my family back together," he said.

And, despite reports of tension following the GQ interview, Billy Ray said things between he and his daughter have never been better. "I feel like I kind of got my Miley back in a way," he said. "I feel like that we're the daddy and the daughter that we were before 'Hannah Montana' happened."

Watch the interview. He had his own television show called "DOC". He had money and fame before "Hannah Montana". Very happy to hear his family is back together. I hope his daughter now realizes that family is more important than so called friends that will encourage you to do wrong. They are not real friends. She has the ability to act in more films, go to college, start foundations to help those less fortunate, and become more of a well rounded young woman and person whose good works would be imitated .

Finally, someone points out that Billy Ray had his music and his own TV show before his daughter ever became famous. He has endured the critics through the years and continues to be gracious and kind. I wish him well in keeping his family together. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be when they are under a spotlight constantly. And he even went on "The View" - another show of how courageous he is! And he looks better than ever! Give the guy some credit!

People who don't know anything about the subject shouldn't comment. Calling Billy Ray Cyrus a "one hit wonder" shows how little rangerleroy knows about him.

Just because you have the hots for him, it doesn't mean he's a superstar. There's only one song by Billy Ray that the average person on the street could name.

I guess Disney & MIley both reminded him which side his one-hit-wonder bread is buttered on.
