Did Miley Cyrus make Billy Ray relevant again? Kelly Osbourne speaks up



At a press conference Zap2it attended on Friday, a journalist insulted Miley Cyrus' fashion sense. "Excuse you!" shouted Kelly Osbourne immediately, offended.

During a "Piers Morgan Tonight" appearance, she defends her BFF Miley -- who she met while they filmed a movie together -- again. Only this time, it's not against a journalist who doesn't approve of Miley's side-boob, it's against Miley's own father, Billy Ray Cyrus.

Billy Ray claims that "Hannah Montana" destroyed his family. "I'd take [doing the show] back in a second," he told GQ. "For my family to be here and just be everybody OK, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I'd erase it all in a second if I could."

Kelly is not having it. "I think that's a really inappropriate thing for someone to say, especially when what they did together gave that person their career back," Kelly says. "It's not fair to do that to your own child."

"I don't think he should have done that in print," adds Sharon Osbourne. "She made him relevant again."

"He might have meant it in a different way, but in black and white it seems so harsh," says Kelly. "I love Miley, she's a dear friend of mine. She works so hard, and that discredits everything she's done in her life not just for herself, but for her whole family."
