Billy Ray Cyrus Defends Miley’s Pole Dance Performance

August 24th, 2009 // 2 Comments

Once again, Billy Ray Cyrus is defending some of his daughter’s antics. Earlier this month, singer Miley Cyrus performed a dance routine at the Teen Choice Awards that included some moves on a stripper pole.

Daddy Billy Ray says of his 16-year-old daughter, “I just think that Miley loves entertaining people. She loves singing and songwriting.” He adds, “I give my kids a lot of freedom to make the art they want to make and make it in their own voice. I think it’s important.”

It’s also important for Miley to move into her inevitable “good girl gone bad” phase. If she’s not already in the midst of it already.

    Of course he defends her, they are brainwashed completely and a sick family.

    I had a lot of respect for Miley until she started dating the sweetheart from Twilight. Then she opened her mouth. Saying stuff like the fans obsession over him was sick and stupid. I’ll agree that some take it too far but what does she think Hannah Montana is? There is no difference as I see it and to condemn his fans is to condemn her own. Also, her rant against Madonna and Angelina Jolie was uncalled for. Miley started as a child, and I feel is still a child aside from the skimpy outfits she parades around in. I say that she will be the next Britney Spears. Only I don’t think Miley is strong enough, or mature enough to climb out of the hell that Britney was in. I keep my children away from anything dealing with her now. Including her music.
