Cyrus: 'Obama Daughters Comment Snowballed'

Billy Ray Cyrus has backtracked on reports Barack Obama's daughter are set to appear on daughter Miley Cyrus' show HANNAH MONTANA.
Earlier this week (beg10Nov08), the Disney star's father revealed the President-elect's children, Sasha and Malia, had been invited to appear on the hit series.
However, an Obama aide subsequently insisted the next U.S. President wasn't considering the offer - and now Cyrus has admitted the youngsters may not appear on the programme after all.
He tells, "Oh, to tell you the truth now, this thing got a lot bigger, a lot quicker than I ever planned. It's a double-edge sword for me because first of all, I have a great deal of respect for President-elect Obama. I just mentioned about them being on the show, and it snowballed."
And the singer-turned-actor is concerned the girls aren't ready for the same kind of fame the television show brought his teenage daughter.
He adds, "As a daddy, I'll say to him what I say to any daddy, you may not want your daughter to get into show business. But if the girls want to be on the show, and him and his wife think it's a good idea, I always say, everything in life, what's meant to be will happen.
"If not, it's probably a good thing also because these girls are going to be in a unique spotlight, and they really do need to walk with certainty and care. I can see many reasons why it would be fun for them to do the show, but I also see a couple other reasons...
"I'll leave it up to faith. I think God has a plan for everything. I have no doubt if it's meant to be. I'll look up and see them some time before April."
