Billy Ray Cyrus is the first to admit that the last thingJustin Bieber needs is another person talking about him to the press. Which is precisely why the country singer was talking to the press about offering Bieber his Tennessee farm as a private sanctuary to re-access.
In an interview with Radio.com last week, Cyrus expressed concern over Bieber’s recent troubles with the law, which now include a Toronto assault charge and last week’s arrest in Miami. “I do care about him a lot,” Cyrus said, adding that he didn’t want to see another case of a star being taken too soon.
“When Kurt Cobain died, I think we could all see that train coming off the track,” he said. “There’s been several that’s happened to. I look back and [think of] Michael Jackson. I wanted so bad to reach out to Michael Jackson, and I knew his kids watched Hanna Montana. I wanted to invite them to the set, become his friend and maybe be something in his life. But sometimes you just stand back and you just watch these things happen.”
