Anyone who's ever been forced to sit down with a ten-year-old niece or cousin and watch Hannah Montana knows it's an instrument of the devil. And now Billy Ray Cyrus is backing that up.
Cyrus told GQ his family is under attack by Satan himself. And apparently, Satan wasn't subtle about his plan to get the Cyruses to the dark side either. On her way to the sinful L.A. from the more god-fearing Tennessee to begin her life as a Disney Channel star, a still-innocent Miley spotted an "Adopt A Highway" sign — sponsored by a group called Atheists United. The people in charge of keeping their path free of cigarette butts and Big Mac wrappers were godless heathens! How could Billy have kept driving down such an obvious avenue of damnation?
"A physical sign. It could have easily said 'You will now be attacked by Satan. Entering this industry, you are now on the highway to darkness.'"
After explaining the Devil's role in the Cyrus family explosion, Billy Ray is pretty repentant, putting a lot of blame on himself for his daughter's wrongdoings by saying "I should have been a better parent."
While no one knows what Miss Cyrus' next headline will be, her dad might not need to panic. So far the parents of America have charged her with smoking a legal substance and being all sexy in front of their kids. She's not exactly in Lohan territory yet.
