We thought her perfromance at the VMAs was pretty darn scandalous, but now it’s looking like Miley Cyrus was simply getting her feet wet. After all, the singer’s new Wrecking Ball music video has attracted even more scrutiny. But as the rest of the world denounces her reckless ways, Dancing With The Stars alum Billy Ray Cyrus remains his daughter’s staunchest defender. What does Daddy Cyrus think of all the Wrecking Ball drama?
Yes, Miley Cyrus stripped down for her controversial Wrecking Ball music video, but no, her dad is not bothered by her very public display of nudity. According to Billy Ray Cyrus, those who criticize his daughter’s on-camera clothing (or lack thereof) have completely missed the point of the music video. “It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt, a tux or a nun’s habit…her performance vocally on the tune reflects her root and sheer God-given talent.” And so, in Billy Ray’s opinion, it is this vocal talent and not the presence of nudity that accounts for the single’s success. And whether or not they agree with this viewpoint, critics must acknowledge that, as the country crooner and proud father alleges, “the song’s a smash.”
This is not the first time Billy Ray has lent Miley his support in the aftermath of a major controversy. When the celeb found herself lambasted in response to the infamous VMA twerkathon, she received a comforting tweet from the father: “Thanking God for so many blessings tonight. Continue to pray for world peace. More love…less hate.”
Do you agree with Billy Ray Cyrus? Should the naysayers stop whining about nudity and pay more attention to Wrecking Ball’s musical content? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
