Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus

This Aug. 14, 2007 file photo shows singer Billy Ray Cyrus, left, and his daughter Miley Cyrus, pose together at the premiere of Disney Channel's "High School Musical 2" in Anaheim, Calif. The teen sensation writes in her memoir, "Miles to Go," that negative reactions to her bond with her father and "Hannah Montana" co-star hurt her feelings. She finds nothing "weird" about their relationship and believes some people are simply "full of anger, hatred and bitterness." Chris Pizzello / Associated Press
