Billy Ray Cyrus - Billy Ray Cyrus Supports Daughter Amid Naked Video Fuss

Proud dad Billy Ray Cyrus has defended his daughter amid fresh criticism surrounding her provocative new Wrecking Ball video.

Miley Cyrus hit the headlines yet again on Monday (09Sep13) when the promo, in which she appears naked swinging on a large, chained metal demolition ball, was released online.

Critics were split on the racy video, which smashed viewing records on website Vevo, and many felt the 20 year old was showing too much skin and behaving badly in front of her fans.

The promo shocker came out just days after Cyrus stunned MTv Video Music Awards viewers with a raunchy dance routine, during which she stripped off to reveal rubber underwear and then 'twerked' and gyrated in front of performance partner Robin Thicke while making suggestive facial expressions and waggling a large foam hand in the Blurred Lines singer's crotch.

But Achy Breaky Heart singer Billy Ray is supporting his daughter throughout the media fuss, just a week after he pulled out of a Tv interview with Piers Morgan, during which he was expected to talk about his daughter's Vmas antics.

In a statement to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday (11Sep13), he says, "I'm a song man. A musician, singer-songwriter who loves all styles of music... but I come from the old school, where it starts with an artist and a song... colliding if you will... in a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band and the listener become one.

"It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt... a tux... or a nun's habit. The song's a smash and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God-given talent."
