Miley Cyrus' latest music video for Wrecking Ball -- in which she rides a wrecking ball naked, licks a sledgehammer and rolls around in her underwear -- is unsurprisingly causing controversy, but according to her famous father Billy Ray Cyrus, her clothing -- or lack thereof -- is beside the point.
"I'm a song man. A musician singer songwriter who loves all styles of music. But again ... I come from the old school where it starts with an artist and a song ... colliding if you will ... in a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band and the listener become one. It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt ... a Tux ... or a nun's habit. The song's a smash ... and her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent," he tells ET exclusively.
And whether you agree with Miley's latest antics or not, the video is clearly a hit -- it broke the record for the most-viewed VEVO video within 24 hours, currently garnering over 14 million views.
According to Miley herself, making the Terry Richardson-directed video was about much more than just getting naked.
"I think the video is much more, if people get past the point that I'm naked and you actually look at me, you can tell that I actually look more broken than even the song sounds," Cyrus said via MTV, calling in to New York's Z100 radio station Wednesday morning. "The song is a pop ballad. It's one of these songs that everyone is going to relate to -- everyone has felt that feeling at one point ... it was a lot harder to do the video than it was to record the song. It was much more of an emotional experience."
The world is full of unanswered questions, dishonest people, and controversial arguments. But now, a new show will put everything to The Test.
The Test is a new daytime reality talk show, hosted by TV personality Kirk Fox, that uses lie detectors, DNA tests, medical examinations and pregnancy results to get to the truth of any situation brought to the show.
In this brief clip, the alleged mistress of Lamar Odom, Jennifer Richardson, talks to Fox about going to watch Odom play during one of his basketball games, and how he got her better seats than his wife, Khloe Kardashian.
"I sat courtside, and she sat three rows back," Richardson claims.
Today on The Talk, a tearful Aisha Tyler shared an emotional secret-- that she and her husband Jeff Tietjens have given up hope of ever conceiving biological children, due to her fertility struggles.
The 42-year-old co-host and actress opened up about her failed IVF treatments with the ladies on Tuesday's show, revealing that doctors have given her a less than 5% chance of ever getting pregnant due to a "tortuous fallopian tube."
"The hardest part, I think, is I really love my husband," Aisha said to the visibly teary group. "He's such a good person. He would be such a good father, you know? It would be so great to see a little him running around in tiny work man's Dickies. But we just decided it wasn't worth it to go though that, and so we decided to stop."
Though she and her husband have officially stopped trying to conceive, Aisha hasn't given up on kids in the future.
"I love the idea of adoption, but I feel like this is such a fresh wound that I want to let it heal for a little while before I think of what to do next."
If you love the hit, Emmy-award winning daytime talk show The Doctors, you must be more than excited for the show's six season, which kicked off Monday, September 9. The new season boasts new additions to the team, new segments, and fascinating guests, including Chaz Bono.
Chaz is returning to The Doctors to reveal his unbelievable weight-loss transformation, due to the healthy eating regimen The Doctors helped him develop last season.
In this clip, we see Chaz's radical change. Last year, he weighed 250 pounds, and since that time he's stuck to the plan and shed pounds to become fitter, leaner, and much healthier.
