Billy Ray Cyrus is speaking out about his daughter Miley Cyrus, after the 20-year-old singer made headlines for her controversial 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance of We Can't Stop/Blurred Lines.
"Of course I'll always be here for Miley. Can't wait to see her when she gets home," Billy Ray told ET's Nancy O'Dell exclusively. "She's still my little girl and I'm still her Dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change."
Miley herself also doesn't seem too concerned about all the negative criticism she's received for the racy number.
"Smilers! My VMA performance had 306.000 tweets per minute. That's more than the blackout or Superbowl!," she recently tweeted.
But the Parents Television Council slammed MTV for what's clearly become the most talked-about performance of Sunday night.
"MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate 'twerking' in a nude-colored bikini. How is this image of former child star Miley Cyrus appropriate for 14-year-olds?," they said in a statement.
