Miley Cyrus and her "non-boyfriend", famewhore Justin Gaston, like to make music together.
In more ways than one!
Daddy Billy Ray Cyrus even commented on the two during the LA premier of of the Slutty one's new film, Bolt. He says, "I'll tell you what – they are great friends, and they make a good team. They write a lot of songs together, and they sing – it's incredible."
We just barfed a little.
And when asked what advice he has to give his daughter, the one time music star said plenty.
Billy Ray preached, "Make good choices. Do the best you can do – mostly have fun."
Definitely! And if having fun means hooking up with your 20 year-old boyfriend, then go for it, right?
Daddy Cyrus added, "I always tell her that as long as she's having fun, then it's working."
Good parenting skills. No need to worry about the consequences of your actions kiddies, just go have fun!
He then adds, "She loves what she's doing. She has a real passion for making music as an artist. She loves being an actress, and we all feel very fortunate being in the Disney family and getting to do both of our loves."
Wow, a Disney plug! Looks like the heads at Disney have had a few talks with the Cyrus family about trying to clean up her image.
A little too late, though.
