Miley Cyrus has always had a "gift and a presence to entertain people", says her father Billy Ray.
The country singer has gushed about the star's talents and believes his daughter was always destined for the stage.
Billy Ray says Miley was adamant she would be a successful artist after watching a popular stage show as a child.
"She always had a gift and a presence to entertain people from the first time she ever stepped on stage, it was obvious. She loved to sing. We went to see Mamma Mia and she said, 'This is what I want to do,'" he smiled.
Meanwhile, Billy Ray has spoken out again about the wedding speculation surrounding the 20-year-old star.
Miley and Liam Hemsworth got engaged in May of last year, but their relationship has been plagued with rumours of an imminent split of late.
The pair garnered headlines earlier this year as they had apparently hit a rough patch in their relationship, with rumours suggesting Liam had kissed actress January Jones.
Despite such speculation surrounding their relationship, Miley's dad insists the pair have a great level of respect for one another.
"Um I’ll be honest with you, her and Liam are great friends, that’s their business and that’s their world. I’m not in charge of any weddings. If that ends up coming to pass and they have a wedding I’m sure I’ll be there," he told FOX 411 when asked if the couple will walk down the aisle.
"Honestly that’s not my business, that’s two young people that are really good friends."
However, Snoop Dogg, who collaborated with Miley on the new track Ashtrays and Heartbreaks - has seemingly confirmed her split from Liam.
“I can’t speak for her, ya know what I’m saying, but I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists. I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career," he explained in a segment on HuffPost Live.
