Miley's Dad on Lap Dance Video: 'Just Fun'

5/13/2010 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Ray Cyrus is blowing off the controversy over his  then 16-year-old daughter Miley Cyrus grinding on a 44-year-old man -- saying, "It's what people her age do."

We spoke to Billy moments ago about the video that TMZ first posted yesterday -- Miley dirty dancing with Adam Shankman during the wrap party for her movie "The Last Song."

In our poll, an overwhelming majority said the dance was inappropriate ... and 40 percent of readers blamed Miley's parents -- who were not there when the dancing deed was done.

Papa Billy says Miley was just "having fun."

just curious    

Was there a photo at one time of Billy Ray & Miley getting all too cozy? It gave me the definite creeps when I seen it.

This is nothing any other stupid teenager wouldn't do. The only difference is most don't have people taping them and putting it on the internet. And no this is not "what sluts do", I've seen plenty of non-slutty teenagers do the same thing. The only major problem is the older man.

Shes a little hore. Her parents are dumb ass's. For allowing her to behave this way. I wish Disney would cancel her show!! Shes sending a meesage to our little girls in our nation, that this behavior is appropiate! Shes going to end up getting gang raped..

So why isn't Adam also to blame since he was, after-all the "adult"?? I use the term lightly.

What a bunch of blow hards! It wasn't a lapdance. He was not sitting down and she was not straddling him. Grow up! That's the problem with the has too many nosey neighbors with the mentality of two year-olds!
Have you NOT been to a party in the last hundred years? Have you NOT seen what usually happens on the dance floor? It's harmless you nitwits! And age has nothing to do with it. Parenting has nothing to do with it. You know what does have something to do with it? Getting a clue! That's what!! STFU idiots.

Man, you people are all stupid. It's called dancing because that's what they were doing. Where have you been for the last hundred years? In the 50's & 60's we called people like you SQUARES! Complainers that did nothing but whine all the time! Well, wah, wah, wah!
Why are you shocked? You all sound like prissy old maids who turn red at the idea of being in the same room with a member of the opposite sex unescorted. Wow! Miley did something that your daughters have done and worse -- the same thing many of you have done too, I bet. Maybe not on camera and maybe not as innocently either. Yes, I said it. Innocently. Look it up dorks! Way to go Billy Ray, tell it like it was, your daughter was having fun like millions and millions of nearly 18 year-old girls have been doing for ages. At least she wasn't sitting all alone in her room smoking dope like most of the commenters on this blog.

Actually if youu aren't a teen then you wouldn't really know what they are up to would you? NO because the thruth is all kids her age or should i say my age, do this at parties all they do is grind maybe not appropiate with a 44 year old thats gross and illegal but do with people OUR own age. We like to have fun is all but not with 40 year old thats just wrong.

Actually, compared to all the other things Miley's done, I don't think grinding is that bad. I mean, at every school dance I go to, there are grinding lines. People grind with others they don't even know. I guess that's why I don't go to school dances anymore, but her dad's right. It's just what people her age are doing these days. &really, she's not very good at it. I do get why people are upset, since she is a role-model&all, but this is really the least of the bad things Miley's done.

first of all that is not a big deal! she wants to dance, has anyone been to a high school dance lately?! if you think she is a slut either you are old or you wish you could dance like her!!! Let her have her fun and go call someone else a slut because you are a loser who doesnt have a life so you have to bash on Miley cyrus.
