"She’s a very smart young lady"...
Billy Ray Cyrus has defended his daughter's now-infamous performance at the MTV VMAs last month. Cyrus spoke with Access Hollywood and backed Miley Cyrus' decision to go all out with her twerking, foam finger antics and such at the awards show.
Billy Ray said, "She's a very smart young lady. She wanted to shake things up a little bit and mission accomplished. She [did] a great deal of preparation and financial investment. All those bears and things she was going out of pocket for to make that stage great. She said she wanted people to be talking."
He did note that it was hard to adjust to her new image, saying, "She wanted to go from a teenage superstar to a young lady, she's got a lot to say musically," he said. "It's hard for me at times, it's still Miley. It's still my little girl, it's still my daughter."
