"I mean, honestly, my mom is my hero," Miley, whose family has been divided in recent years after Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus filed for divorce, said.

However, she said she still has "a lot of love" for Billy Ray, 62, adding that her parents both contributed to her success today and they "can't be weighed on the same scale."

Miley said she inherited her father's "perspective and reality on life," but Tish, who was adopted as a baby and had a happy childhood, was the one to raise her.

"My dad had a really rough childhood, and my childhood — I mean, we can go and talk about the hard times or the struggles… but I had food, I had love, I grew up in a beautiful big house, and my dad didn’t have that," she confessed.

"Without my dad, I know… who I am as a person wouldn’t exist," she gushed of the country star, who played her father in the Disney series Hannah Montana. "Because my dad as a creative and like, as an artist, and the way his brain works has always made me feel safer in my own mind."

"He also has a relationship and a foot on the ground to nature and to the real. And he always did, even when he was super famous," she added. "I’m grateful for being able to watch him ahead of me. He’s almost like, given me this map — there is a map of what to do and what not to do — and he’s guided me on both."

But Miley did admit there's one negative trait about her dad that's been passed down to her.

"I also inherited the narcissism from my father," she said with a laugh.

"I don’t know anything about my own siblings except for the part that I was doing... I was moving to L.A., and that’s all I really knew," she said of heading to the West Coast to start her career on Hannah Montana.
