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."

next you know he will be talking about his daughter's boobs like Joe Simpson..The parents today should be ashamed..That's why there are so many teen's ending up pregnant..Their parents aren't keeping a close enough eye on their children..and yes at 16 she is a CHILD!

He is obviously and idiot-- that is NOT what kids her age do. My daughter is 17 and doesn't act like that or dance like that. Her friends don't do that either so it IS NOT what "people her age do". He should try parenting and let her know it is not appropriate especially on grown men (gay or not). She is going to end up just like Lindsay Lohan, who never thought she would be like she is now.

Get over it. Go to any highschool or junior high dance and that is EXACTLY the kind of dancing you are going to see. And as far as his age.... He's gay so leave it alone. Maybe thats the reason she was dancing with him. Because he is gay and she knows she is safe and he's not going to try to sleep with her. It's not a cop out. It's real life people. wake up. If you dont like it then dont read the story or dont let your kids do the same. no one made you read it. You're on this website because you want to see and read the scandalous things that happen in hollywood. if you cant handle it and choose to judge people without knowing the entire situation then go read something else. Whether you realize it or not children in the celebrity lifestyle have to grow up faster then everyone else.

That is just stupid. Miley is just a tramp. First dating a dude MUCH older than her. Then a dirty muisic vid of "Can't Be Tamed" After a vid of her lap dancing? WTF. And Billy saying everything is ok. He just says that cuz she is the one bringing the money in the family. When I see Miley Cyrus.... I see Britney Spears 2.1.

This type of dancing is totally inappropriate for a 16 year old girl! It doesn't matter if LOTS of teenagers are doing "it"! That doesn't make it right! It's sexually suggestive, and even more disgusting that a man in his 40's is "doing it" with her...even if it's her producer! Disgusting! If her dad thinks this is jolly fine, it shows that his parenting skills and logic are "lopsided" and inappropriate.... and in need of evaluation!! Take some parenting classes Billy Ray!! No wonder Miley has been doing some pretty suggestive, raunchy things lately!

I believe that Miley's father has had sex with her himself, that is why he has no problem as to what she does. I think it is sick.

I was right. Miley Cyrus is a whore. White people made me apologize for telling the truth about her a few months back.

The dancing is fine but is a 16 year old girl suppose to be in a bar regardless who she is? The fact that she's grinding on a man who could be her father is sick, I'm sure she's not thinking of it as such Billy's right she's just having fun but men that age aren't looking at it like that they're looking at it as a young hot piece of a......

Disgusting......how old is she? I have a daughter and if she acted like that (and older men reciprocated) there would be a serious problem. Miley is going down the same road as Lohan and all other skid row kid stars. Way to go Billy Ray!
