Miley's 2013 Video Music Awards performance is still as hot as the summer sun, the controversial show may have aired almost a month ago but people are still talking about it.
And speaking about it, Miley's dad Billy Cyrus defends his daughter's VMA performance when he appeared on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" to talked about his reaction about his daughters drastic transformation.
Miley Cyrus, the center of a lot of controversies these days is on the spotlight once again as her father Billy Ray say's that she is just "being Miley" from a recent interview. Host Piers Morgan brought up the issue of her "Wrecking Ball" video and as a father he wouldn't be pleased about it, but the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer simply diverted the question by saying:
"It gets even stranger when that little girl becomes a young lady," he said, and mentioned that "the shock factor is tremendously higher than it used to be."
But when asked about her daughter's stripping in her recent video and her sexual innuendos, Billy Ray defend's his daughter by saying, "I'm her daddy. I come for that school of as a singer-songwriter, as a musician, that it starts with a song. And it's that magic moment when a song finds the right artist, the right singer, and it becomes a synchronicity of that moment in time."
He added, "Miley harnessed into something very special. She's just Miley. She's an artist, she's real. I think that's what's happened over the years, Miley has been reinventing her sound. She's evolving as an artist herself. I think that it's all of what everyone is calling controversy now. That's still my Miley."
As for that performance at the MTV VMAs, the dad of the 20-year old Twerking Queen simply stated, "Miley again, you know, I think she could've went out and sang the song in a flannel shirt and a pair of jeans, and it would have still been just as strong. Would we have been here talking about it? No way."
"I knew that she wanted to do something really special and something everyone would be talking about. I knew she'd been putting a lot of practice and thought into what happened in New York. Again it became that moment of a singer-songwriter-entertainer finding that special moment, and again controversy lies in that special moment. I don't know any great artist who was lukewarm and the fans were just in the middle of it. You either love it or you hate it."
