Miley Cyrus forced the Rogue Mullet to cancel his television appearances


One of the biggest stories last week was Billy Ray Cyrus’s extensive interview with GQ, in which he bashed Disney and lamented his daughter Miley’s wild ways. Miley still hasn’t issued a formal statement on anything her dad said, although she and her mom Tish did step out for an “all is well” photo-op just hours after the GQ interview dropped. Now PopEater reports that the GQ piece was just the beginning of The Mullet’s media campaign – and Miley is not having it.

Billy Ray Cyrus certainly knows how to burn a bridge. First he angers his daughter Miley after comparing her to Anna Nicole Smith. Then he attacks Disney, saying ‘Hannah Montana’ destroyed his family. Now he goes and upsets TV legend Barbara Walters after his daughter forced him to drop out of a scheduled interview on ‘The View’ this week.

“When Miley found out her father was scheduled to appear on ‘The View’ on Wednesday she went nuts,” a family friend tells me. “Only last week Billy shot his mouth off in GQ, and now he planned to sit down with the [Barbara and Whoopi] and talk more crap about his family. No way would Miley or her team let that happen.”

The GQ interview started off a firestorm after Billy Ray’s bombshell that he feels isolated from his daughter, blaming everyone but himself. “I’m scared for her,” he said in the interview. “She’s got a lot of people around her that’s putting her in a great deal of danger. I want to get her sheltered from the storm.”

Billy Ray’s comments had come out of nowhere, leaving everyone, including Miley, to wonder why her dad had decided to go public with private family matters.

“At first Miley defended her dad wanting to believe he had been tricked into saying bad things by the magazine,” an insider with knowledge of situation tells me. “Miley truly wanted to give her father the benefit of the doubt, goodness knows she’s said things she wishes she could take back. But after she found out about his media trip to New York no more excuses could be made.”

True, you don’t accidentally end up as a guest on ‘The View.’ That is a heavily planned event! Billy Ray’s representative confirmed to me that his trip to NYC had been canceled, at least for now.

I have two theories: One, Miley finally called her father and told him to quiet down. Or two, Miley called her management and screamed “CODE RED, THE MULLET IS GOING ROGUE!!” But seriously, she probably called Billy Ray and convinced him that she’s fine… for now. From what I remember of the GQ piece (’m pulling from memory, because I don’t want to reread that six page epic diatribe again) is that The Mullet is promoting his new album…? So, yes, he probably had more media appearances planned, in service of promoting his album. But all anyone would want to talk about would be Miley and how The Mullet thinks Jesus doesn’t approve of salvia.

These are pics of Miley yesterday. Seriously, her face is just filling out, don’t call her fat.

    My 60 year old cleaning lady has those exact same shoes.

  2. Brittany says:

    Not surprised… I wonder how it feels for BR to know that he can’t actually promote something himself and has to namedrop his kid to do it?
    Kinda sad…

  3. Genevieve says:

    She isn’t fat, she’s got coke ‘n booze bloat

  4. malachais says:

    Miley and Tish probably threatened Billy Ray, there was some story floating around that Miley told Billy to STFU because of some dark secrets she knows about him. I would like to believe Miley and her dad have a good relationship, but I just don’t. Her face looks swollen from partying too much I think. IMO

  5. guesty says:

    she looks bloated to me or kinda swollen…not fat.

  6. Yael says:

    Bloaty Cyrus…lol…stupid kid, product of massive marketing endeavors.

  7. brin says:

    Guess Miley calls the shots now.

  8. Liana says:

    nothing like proving you’ve created a little monster by letting her call the shots.

    meh, she’ll crash and burn soon enough.

  9. AngelMay says:

    She’s a slender girl, why the face bloat? Medication? Fillers?

    Guess she showed Billy Ray who’s boss. He’s a hypocrite, Michael Lohan 2.0. Miley seems tougher that Lindsay or Britney. Maybe she likes to party but I don’t see her going down in flames.

  10. Laura says:

    Jesus god, her face!!! Did she have her wisdom teeth removed?

  11. devilgirl says:

    Why is she so damned swollen lately?

  12. emine says:

    i wont call her fat this week but every week she looks bigger and bigger , so i might call her fat next week

  13. Ari says:

    She has always had a round face – there is definitely no way that girl is fat for sure. She is a bit smarmy though.

  14. Melanie says:

    I never really
    thought he blamed everyone but himself in that article. I remember a part where he said something about how he never knew how to parent his kids and thought that it was really important that he was a friend to them, which he now realizes was wrong.

  15. texasmom says:

    Poor little girl with no neck…

  16. Julie says:

    I think it’s less that she’s gained weight or that her face is particularly bloated, and more that her face just doesn’t look good photographed from certain angles.

  17. shockedandappalled says:

    The “Rogue Mullet”. Ha! I die.

  18. Ginevra says:

    “blaming everyone but himself??” I am pretty sure there were a few quotes in his interview that fairly explicitly expressed regrets about his OWN parenting.

    This piece seems so anti- Billy Ray Cyrus that I wonder the motivation. The first sentence claiming he “attacked Disney” stands out suspiciously to me. The View is on ABC after all…

  19. mia girl says:

    @Saskia #1 “My 60 year old cleaning lady has those exact same shoes.”

    Don’t’ know if your comment was snarky but the shoes she is wearing are Toms. They cost about 50 dollars and every time you buy a pair, Toms donates a pair of shoes to children in third world countries. It is a very progressive company and many people, especially young people wear them bc of their social responsibility.

  20. lucy2 says:

    She looks…different.
    Can’t stand her, but also can’t blame her for not wanting her dad to do that. He should know better than to do this publicly.

  21. Fire says:

    I guess her legs are filling out too.

  22. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Ginevra: ITA. And it cracked me up when Michael Lohan tried to align himself with Billy Ray, because Michael loves to blame Dina for all Lindsay’s troubles, not himself. I was particularly impressed that Billy Ray said not one word about Tish in the GQ interview.

  23. di butler says:

    Every single time she comes off of a movie or big tour, within weeks she fills out a little. She’s a teenager who eats/drinks junk when she’s not working. Big deal.

  24. AENFLEX says:

    short neck. too-wide shoulders that give her t-rex arms. fat face. never did find her attractive but do feel slighly bad critiqueing her. but whatever, she’s dressed like a whore so many times she musn’t care what we think.

  25. Sumodo1 says:

    I’d start shoving Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in my mouth too if MY FATHER went rogue like that! Poor baby is gaining weight over this! Come to think about it, my father told anyone who would listen that I was a no good pot-head.

  26. nanster says:

    As I have said before, this family is the by-product of what happens when you give money to white trash.

  27. chasingadalia says:

    I think it’s a bad angle. She doesn’t look fat to me. Plus, her face is thinner in the second photo when she turned her head.

  28. the other mel says:

    Billy Ray has always been about self promotion. He may have regrets, but the timing is suspect, since he has a new album dropping. I remember him on DWTS and he plugged Hannah Montana shamelessly every chance he got. I’m sure he loves his family, but I think he’s also an opportunistic user. I also think the apple didn’t fall far from the tree in this family.

  29. carolyn says:

    He was supposed to be on Howard Stern, too, but canceled that.

  30. Marjalane says:

    Having had many years of observing teenager’s growth- Miley seems to be doing it backwards. As they get into the upper teens, they lose the face and neck fat; Either Miley is a heavy duty boozer or she’s having a major reaction to birth control pills. She looks terrible.

  31. Tuatara says:

    She’s looking a lot like Bristol Palin these days….

  32. anti says:

    there was a similar blind item on this the other day. her face is major swollen, i hope she takes care of herself.

    “This former A list tweener who is now trying to find her own way in the world has been telling people she has lots and lots of secrets about daddy he does not want the world to know so he needs to be quiet”

  33. Alice says:

    She’s not fat. Yet. But she’s definitely gaining. I’m crossing my fingers. I want her to balloon to 300 pounds.

  34. KLO says:

    She looks gorgeous in the bottom pics. Very cute.

  35. gabs says:

    Im glad she got him to cancel those interviews. It would only make him michael lohan 2.0.Im team miley on this one surprisingly. No matter how bad their relationship is he has no right to bring it to the media.

    Also cant believe how horrible you ppl are about her looks. Shes not ugly. Shes not fat. grow up!

  36. TG says:

    @Sumodo1 – Thanks for the laugh for the day!

    I too thought BR blamed himself also for his families disaster. I thought it was nice to see someone finally taking responsibility instead of deny, deny, deny like the lohan clan.

    I don’t think Miley is fat just put on some weight you could see it in her arms and face at the Grammys. She is looking hard these days sort of like her mom.

  37. original kate says:

    how dare she wear a willie nelson t-shirt.

  38. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    not fat… bloated

  39. Liana says:

    Yeah, he put a lot of the blame squarely on his own shoulders.

  40. mymy says:

    My feelings about her face bloat is she went on antidepressants after the bong thing came out. It is always something that seems to happen. those sucker will put massive weight on you. Britney Spears is on a diet of them. One of the reasons she had the hair shaving incident. Doctors told her she was on the wrong mix. But fact is those things make lots of people get fat. Slows down your thyroid and act crazy.It under reported.The woman who shot her 2 kids in Florida was taking them. Mark my words it had everything to do with SSRI’s

  41. JoJo says:

    Those buck teeth in that first pic are so horrible. I picture her as a fat hairy beaver knawing on a big log.

  42. Jacq says:

    Take off the Willie Nelson shirt before you ruin him, too, skank!!

  43. grace says:

    The girl is finally doing something good to those who need by wearing Tom shoes but somebody still has to make a very unnecessary comment.

    and you guys are CRAZY if you think she is fat. Her face look rounder but in no way she is fat. Please, people. Then, when there are celebrities who give in to people’s mean comments and start dropping pounds, everybody criticizes them for not keeping what was a “healthy” weight. But when they have a normal weight, they are called fat. I really think this is ridiculous.

  44. DSMR says:

    Not her fault she has a moon pie face, tiny hands, a voice like Farmer Fran and no ankles. Blame Billy Ray and his no branching family tree.

  45. Cha Cha Loca says:

    Sucks when your meal ticket turns 18 and tells you to fuck off, don’t it?!

    And LOL at “his no branching family tree”!

  46. the other mel says:

    You people are assholes with all the fat comments. Isn’t it hard enough for girls dealing with weight and self esteem issues every freaking moment of their lives? Isn’t it hard enough for ALL of us? It doesn’t matter if you’re a star or not, it sucks to have your weight scrutizined. I don’t know about you all, but I went through the ‘Freshman 15′ weight gain, and also later when I was on anti-depressents (and yes, it does cause inexplicable horrendous weight gain). I was 15 pounds heavier than usual and was called ‘fat’ and ‘fat face’ and although I am quite thin now, I never got over that shit and I’ll bet most of you haven’t either. I don’t usually rant like this, but jeezus, give the girl a fucking break.

  47. seri says:

    Okay, SOME PEOPLE have fat faces. Not evryone is blessed with the slender face gene, yall. It sucks, and yeah, you put on a tiny bit of weight, it all goes to your face. I remember Conan O’Brien talknig about this happening to Irish folk, which is true I guess, I too am living proof.

  48. Christine says:

    @anti – that’s the blind I was thinking of! Thanks for posting. Yeah, Rogue Mullet (awesome) shut up because of the blind item and whatever dirt mom and Miley have on him. Awesome parenting, all around.

  49. Cleo says:

    I love that she looks like a grade schooler. American Girl dolls should use her for a face sculpt. I’d buy it!

  50. ADS says:

    @50 Indeed the people calling her fat are assholes. Probably fat assholes themselves that they have to attack an 18 year old girl. Nice distraction from the fact that Billy Ray went ‘rogue’ long ago by absconding his parental duties. Anyone seen pics of his 10 y/o child?

    Yep, the whole parenting thing clearly isn’t his bag.

  51. notsoanonymous says:

    Not a fan. Don’t hate her, but don’t get the appeal, either.

    As for looks, why exactly is it alright to tear apart celebs like Brit and J Simp but we get told Miley and her giantfacebigupperarmsobviousweightgainhorriblesideboobgrammydressfashiondisasterlooks are off limits? Come on…

  52. Gabriela says:

    wow, i didn’t see it before, but looking at those last pictures of her, she really is bloated. not fat, because her body looks pretty much the same, but EH that face!!!

  53. Cherry Rose says:

    Well, when you’re a teenager, you’re metabolism changes, for better or worse. She’s definitely not fat, but her face is a bit bloated, but that could be from eating too much junk food and not getting a goodnight’s sleep, either from too much sleep or not enough.

    Besides, after seeing too many skinny girls in Hollywood, when we see a girl who’s a normal weight, we all think she’s overweight.

  54. Crash2GO2 says:

    @mymy: SSRI’s don’t usually make you gain weight. It is the ones used to treat bipolar disorder (allegedly what Brit has) that can do that.

    I’d hate to see anyone forgo treatment for simple depression because they were afraid they were going to balloon up! Goodness.

  55. Anony says:

    People who get swollen faces like that generally have bulimia.

  56. Kloops says:

    Coke bloat or bulimia. Probably the latter, but give her time, we know where this train is heading.

    Code Red: The Mullet Going Rogue. Love it!!

  57. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    The Willie Nelson shirt all but confirms that it was not salvia in that bong.

  58. Whatever says:

    “No way would Miley or her team let that happen.”

    This statement makes me believe Billy Ray’s story about the machine taking over and the people around her not looking out for her best interests and getting between him and Miley. Her team? Why would her FATHER not be on that team?

    As for her face, it was always round. When she is too skinny she looks like a lollipop because her face is still round, not fat.

  59. Jo says:

    I’m tired of this girl…too much too soon, I agree with DAD!!

  60. DetRiotgirl says:


    BWAHAHAHAHA!!! OMG, thank you! I just cried from laughter!

    @ADS I think the scariest thing about that little girl is that they named her Noah. If she were a boy, sure. But, Noah for a girl? Sorry, not sold. Poor thing. She’s never had a chance.

  61. geekylove says:

    #58 (can’t see your nick): ditto! everything you said.
    and to be honest, after antidepressants made me feel like a human being, not stuck in a haze of blackness depression created so suddenly in my life, a weight gain (not that i had any!!) would be a small price to pay for having my life back.

  62. ADS says:

    @55 You sound really smart and a tad unstable.

  63. LT says:

    I would call birth control as weight gain, but I have a feeling she’s been on bc for at least a couple years…I’ll go with anti depressants or too much booze.

  64. Laura says:

    She doesn’t look fat, she looks swollen. Like she’s having an allergic reaction to something. Weird.

  65. sekiya says:

    looks like some girl to me. who is she and why do you all care? is she doing things for the people around her? or is she just a overly religious girl who is rebelling and people are trying to make her out to be be a bad seed? really who is she? the Internet is a strange place and i don”t no how to go back.

  66. Joanna says:

    I’m not going to lie, I am worried about her face getting rounder. Seriously, not trying to be funny but she is getting a double chin. But maybe it is the angle at which she has her head turned. As for this whole ordeal with her father, I’m kind of on the fence. While Billy Ray is ironically calling out his daughter’s career and actions (funny how he’s doing this now that Miley is of legal age to handle her own money), everyone was trying to rally behind Miley and say that she was (is) just being a teen and making her own mistakes, so everyone’s to blame in this ordeal. Not just Disney. Not just Miley. Not just Billy Ray. EVERYONE!

  67. grace says:

    those are bulimia cheeks to me
