Billy Ray Cyrus needs a hobby that isn’t trying to tease us about his daughter Miley’s wedding. Daddy Cyrus posted the above photo to Instagram on Friday. It’s a pic of Miley smiling in a white lace dress that could be a wedding dress and if you look at the reflection, that’s Miley taking a picture of her own photo. It’s all very meta and wistful and cryptic. To add to the “huh?” quality, Billy Ray added the caption about being happy that Miley is so happy, which is something one generally associates with wedding days. This all came just a few days after Miley and Liam Hemsworth were caught by paps walking hand in hand on the beach (shirtless Liam and super cute bikini top alert). So this caught fire and the whole internet – including me – was speculating about whether or not this was the long awaited announcement of the Miley/Liam nuptials. And Billy Ray got me – I thought they had and was happy not only that they had gotten married but they had done so in their own way.
But just like when he ignited rumors about a wedding date being set, Billy Ray was talking out of his wiglet again. The following day, after social media had worked itself not a frenzy, he posted the exact same pic but with the caption, “Whoa! Don’t jump the gun. Been at work #StillTheKing Glad to see so many love @MileyCyrus the same as I do #happy.”
So I got mad at Billy Ray. Not because he had done anything wrong but because I got excited that Miley and Liam were married and then they weren’t, a fact that Miley’s manager confirmed. I used to think they were all messing with us but honestly, I think they don’t care. It’s not that they don’t know any switch up will spark rumors, just that that’s on us, not them. I, do, however, suspect they enjoy the confusion they create and honestly, so would I.
In other Cyrus news, both Billy Ray and Miley are posting a lot of throwback pics of late. It’s cute to see baby Cyrusi but I wonder why the parade down Memory Lane? Whatever is going on, it’s always worth it to check out Miley’s IG for the eye candy:
