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."

yo, live your life. i mean, its her life. stop living your life through celebrities and mind your business. I mean honestly it's none of your business what she does. do you criticize every random girl you see twerking, or do you just focus on celebrities? and yall are judging her and calling her a slut like you know her. i mean come the hell on, i know if you were a celebrity, you wouldn't want hundreds or thousands of people you dont even KNOW on your nuts blaming and criticizing you or your family for stuff that's none of their business. live your own damn life

16 year olds can legally have sex in most states but they can't dance? She's responsible for her own actions, if she had committed a crime she wouldn't be considered a 'child'.

All teenagers do this, and if Adam were a STRAIGHT 44 year old man: it would be completely innappropriate. However, that's not the case. Shankman is completely gay; it's almost no different than if she were to do this with one of her best girl friends.

umm... i was waiting to see this "lap dance" but it never happened?... if people think this is bad then they have not been to a high school dance in well over 13 years... leave the poor family alone...

Big freakin' deal. She was out dancing. Before judging, ask yourself something, Have you been out dancing anytime in the last 20 years? If you have, you would realize that what she was doing, wasn't even considered that "lewd" or whatever. Go out to a hoppin' club scene, and sit back and watch for an hour. You at very LEAST might have something to say about the trends, but couldn't really target Miley specifically anymore.

She's 18! Leave her alone! She's a real freaking person! It's not like she's the only one in the world doing stuff like this. She's only trying to have fun. I think you people are also forgetting that she's having a really hard time with her family life right now. And when you think about it she's a very respectable and accomplished person. She's only 18 and so far she's had a HIT TV show, has released many HIT albums, and has starred in TWO HIT MOVIES! She's also participated in foundations like "to write love on her arms" (against bully and suicide) and "Get your good on" (informing the youth about helping out with our planet). She is an amazing person and a HUGE role-model to me. She's my idol and I think she deserves a lot more credit than you people give her.

AlllllllRIGHTEY then! Good one Billy. Hey, I'm a 51-y-o guy who thinks Miley (at 16) was already smoking pot and a couple packs of cigarettes daily; screwing whomever (probably daddy too); drinking booze; and who knows what else. Not only do I think she can not act or really sing that well, but she is not all that beautiful either. That being said, if dad says she was just having fun, I want to get on the list because I happen to be a fun loving guy. Hey, she is over 16 and has daddy's permission (age and consent folks) so I want some too. I'd really like to get it before she gets too fat though. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that recent photos don't lie. This chick is into so much excess that she appears to be balloning quite rapidly. Is it just me? or the lighting? or the camera angle? What a nasty little pig she is becoming.

well, i think morganlee is kinda right, but i think everyone has a part of guilt. like her parents, they have to teach her the appropiate things. Adam, well he knew how many years miley had, so he had to put a stop. Miley, well she was 16 and now 18 she have to know whats right and what is not right.

Adam Shankman is openly gay, so does that somehow change things? I’m just wondering.

I didn’t realize that until just now so to me it does change things “a little”, however grinding on a guy’s dykk is still grinding and it’s going to elicit a response, gay or not. It is how a lot of people dance but it’s not a good sign when your 16-year-old child does it so casually and freely. There’s something clicking in that girl’s brain that says, “I want to get pregnant—BAD!” It’s a hormone thing, it’s a power thing, it’s an attention thing. Frankly, it’s really pathetic.

Her parents were stupid and grossly naive. I don’t wish any of them any harm, but I don’t have to. Harm’s a comin and Miley’s doing it to herself, all by herself.
