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."

Here's a little reality for you young ladies since everyone is doing this now. It doesn't matter if you're 16 or 40 years old or if the guy involved is 16 or 40. If you do a lap dance in a social setting with people watching, you look like a s-l-u-t. In fact, everyone from that point forward assumes that you are. When guys show you interest after that, it's because they think you will be an easy lay, and that's all there is to it. As far as her Dad, what a clueless father. Another fine example of an overly permissive parent.

Funny how the Nazi s***bags at TMZ aren't blaming the actual ADULT with this story. Why wasn't the ADULT an option to blame for guilt in your poll? Gee, I wonder why!! If he were a straight guy I'm sure TMZ would be calling him a predator and a child molester. Yeah, blaming a 16 year old when a 44 year old MAN is dancing with her. As usual TMZ, thanks for the laugh.

Papa Cyrus ought to know that "people her age" are also having sex with their significant others.

No Mr. Cyrus, it is not what girls her age do. It is what SOME girls her age do, but not all. I am a 17 year old girl and I can assure you, you are wrong. I hope you do not end up with another Lindsey Lohan on your hands. What a shame.

Wow Mr. Cyrus...ok I've been living in an illusion about you being the 'guiding and responsible' parent. Not good! Not good at all! You're backing this behavior up, I'm done with you all.

@ #.92 No Americans do not eat it up and pump money into eat.



In fact, I prohibit my children from watching Hannah Montana now or buying anything associated with Miley Cyrus or the Hannah brand. She is a poor role model. Had the Hannah Montana season ENDED before she started acting like a promiscuous 17 year old girl, then I would not be boycotting...But as it is, she is contradicting the values that she represents and portrays on her show.

My 20 year old daughter stomped out mad earlier to whine to her dad or friends because I told her she was too immature to go on The Bachelor show, because they would eat her alive(didn't feel well, forgot to do my usual "shock-value" routine of 'oh, really--this too shall pass') sigh. Told me I don't really know her, but yes...I do. I'm the 'mean' one, being totally honest. I'm her mom.
Yeah young girls really do dance 'sorta' like Miley did at 16 but it sure isn't grinding up against a 44 year old men, gay or not. The man needs his ass kicked and Billy Ray needs to pull his head out--the producer of the movie is not watching out for your daughter, he is taking advantage. Read some blind gossips sometime, daddy.

It's what kids do??? Well, then maybe she can "re-enact" her trashy performance at church this coming Sunday! I mean, the Cyrus clan claims to be "christians" so it shouldn't be an issue, right?

neither of these two sluts    

106. ...having gone through this myself, and as a h.s. and collegiate basketball player of some fame/reknown back on the East Coast...




I despise the fact that the entire Cyrus family is being targeted online, You Tube, et al and by haters.




Two sisters, a grand TOTAL age of 26 years, being called things like 'ho's' and 'sluts' and tramps.




Because they're happy and having a good time of things, and because of their great talent and gifts...




Miley Cyrus is a wonderful girl and talent, a great role model, and has 'tweens everywhere singing her songs and emulating her.




What could be/what IS better than to hear a happy ten year old girl singing a Miley Cyrus song filled with joy.




Or the happy little girls 6 o 7 year old girls that Noah Cyrus brings on her own show, and makes laugh, has fun with.




Hated on and because they're happy.




Hated upon because everything is going their way.




Hated upon because they're gifted, beautiful and rich.




Ultimately hated upon...




...because Billy Ray Cyrus and Wife, more than anything, are great great parents raising happy, well adjusted, talented and successful kids.




When you win, and the Cyrus' family is winning big/hoorah for them, this bitter element of Society emerges, and attacks.




I hope the two girls, the entire Cyrus family, survive the onslaught.




The attacks and attackers, day in and day out...




...because I almost didn't, and I fear them coming back after me, even now, 20 or so years later...




...that's how ugly and painful it all was and is...




It drove me behind all of the coats in my clothes closet, and in many way I'm still hiding...




The viciousness of it is beyond heinous.




And by an element that has never won and doesn't believe that they CAN win.




"We don't believe we can duplicate what Miley Cyrus is doing, so we load up on the blow darts and send them out to her in the most anonymous and cowardly of ways."




...for my money, and I don't have a lot of it...




...every child should have a Dad like Billy Ray Cyrus, and my hat is off to him & the Mrs. for creating such wondrous children.
