Billy Ray Cyrus Defends Daughter Miley
September 20, 2013 2:24 PM
Billy Ray Cyrus has opened up about his daughter, Miley Cyrus’s VMA performane.
Cyrus gave an interview to Piers Morgan on CNN, and defended Miley’s actions as her “evolving as an artist”. He also went on to say that she just wanted to create something “special.”
“I knew that she wanted to do something really special and something everyone would be talking about.” But he did go on and say she could “have gone out and sung a song in a flannel shirt and a pair of jeans and it still would have been just as strong.”
Miley’s performance, however, was far from strong. She’s been widely criticized for twerking with “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke during the VMA’s.
Billy Ray Cyrus is still supporting his daughter though, no matter what. “I’m a singer song writer first and foremost, and I’m her daddy. I come from that school where it starts with a song, and it’s that magic moment when that song finds the right artist or singer and becomes a special moment in time. Miley harnessed into something very special… she’s just Miley. She’s an artist. She’s real. What’s happened over the years is Miley’s reinvented her sound, she’s evolving as an artist herself. All of what everyone is calling controversy now – that’s still my Miley.”
