He expresses that he feels that it has destroyed his family. I think it is with good reasons that he has those regrets. After all, in the last year his 18 year old daughter Miley Cyrus has made multiple headlines that have left many of her fans, and the parents of her fans, feel like she has left those roots of which she was so proud of before. Those roots that spoke of family values and Christian beliefs.
Miley Cyrus became so rich and so overwhelmingly popular that she began to make changes like dressing more provocatively. She not only “grew up”; she changed her image. She made very grown up videos with older men and she was caught on film smoking Salvia in a bong (which is not illegal in California but which has hallucinogenic affects on the people who smoke it).
