Country star BILLY RAY CYRUS insists his teenage daughter MILEY will bounce back from her recent photo scandals – because she’s such a positive person.
The 15-year-old hit the headlines at the beginning of May (08) when revealing shots of her posing for Vanity Fair first appeared. The controversy came hot on the heels of a similar online scandal, when she appeared in provocative underwear shots.
Outrage from family groups and parents prompted Cyrus to apologize for the snapshots. But, despite reports the Hanna Montana star is hurt after taking a series of hits in May (08), her proud dad insists she won’t let all the criticism get her down.
He says, “The thing you got to look at in life, whether you’re an entertainer or whether you’re a farmer… whatever you do in life, there’s going to be peaks and valleys.
“I think one of the things my dad taught me and hopefully I instilled in Miley, is that when you get knocked down, you got to get back up because it’s not going to do any good to lie on the ground and cry about it.
“I think she has a lot to be proud of. I think the positive far outweighs the negative.”
