Billy Ray Cyrus defends Miley’s stripper dance
Although the majority of America found Miley Cyrus‘ recent pole dancing routine incredibly inappropriate (not to mention trashy), her father feels that the 16-year-old Hannah Montana star did absolutely nothing wrong.
In case you didn’t tune in to the 11th annual Teen Choice 2009 awards on August 10, Miley – in a pair of micro short shorts and biker boots – writhed around a metal pole while performing her hit song “Party In The USA.”
Out of sheer curiosity Access Hollywood met up with Billy Ray Cyrus on Thursday at the Hellman’s/Facebook Feeding American Event in New York to hear his take on the stripper routine.
“You know what? I just think that Miley loves entertaining people,” Billy Ray shrugged.
“I always tell her to love what you’re doing and stay focused for the love of the art and not worry so much about opinion,” he later told Us Weekly. “I give my kids a lot of freedom to make the art they wanna make, and make it in their own voice. I think it’s important.”
Perhaps a little too much freedom, wouldn’t you say? And what is this about pole dancing being an art form? What a crock … it’s no wonder little Miley has middle-aged men stalking her. (Usmagazine.com)
