EXCUSE ME? Billy Ray Cyrus Defends Miley's Lap Dance: 'It's What Kids Do'

Last time I checked grinding on an older man isn’t what teens do in their spare time. But Miley’s striptease doesn’t seem to bother her daddy Billy Ray one bit! What do you think … should it bother him?

Billy Ray Cyrus gives lap dances two thumbs up! Remember the lap dance his daughter Miley Cyrus preformed on her The Last Song producer Adam Shankman, 44, last May that just leaked out on tape? Well, it doesn’t bother big daddy. “It’s what people her age do,” he tells TMZ. Oh right, the last time I checked 16-year-old girls usually do lap dances after picking up their 7-11 slurpees and getting pedicures.

As we told you before, the video was taken seven months ago at a wrap party for her southern romance movie The Last Song. RadarOnline spoke to witnesses at the party who say her dancing was so dirty “parents actually left the party and took their kids home.”

Not to mention Miley’s new super sexy album cover and raunchy music video … Miley is all about growing up as fast as she can these days.

Watch out Billy and Tish your littlest daughter, Noah, 10, could be next!

I think it was hot. She’s seventeen for cryin out loud. There’s girls who grind at the age of twelve. & so it was with a forty year old man? She’s known him for like 4 years. She’s like his best friend. AND he’s gay. So like, MOVE ON. I support Miley through these rough patches. Because you need to realize that she’s grown up & can’t be this little 11 year old Hannah Montana anymore. She’s a talented, smart, amazing girl, & she stays grounded even though the “sharks” are snappin at her. I <3 Miley :]

i think miley’s just trying to explore her sexuality and making some mistakes in the appropriateness column. i actually do think, or at least hope, that she’ll be all right- but it will be no thanks to the men in her life, both this old pervy queen, and her father. i’m so disappointed that they’re the ones guiding her at this time in her life. i wish her the best of luck, and do actually think she’s gonna be all right.

if that’s the case, maybe that’s all right. i’ll hope you’re right. but i’ll also hope that in private he is having a serious talk to her and trying to limit the time she spends with the bad influence that is the old queen shankman.

DITTO Shannen – you go girl! sorry miley, if you act like trash you get branded – slutty is right. Dad needs a check up from the neck up. Because that’s what kids do (not all of them – some do have class) doesn’t make it okay. Some parents put their ‘guidance’ responsibilities on the back burner to stay in good with their children. Bad news for all…….

this sounds harsh, but you’re actually right. i don’t think miley is a slut, so i cringe at her or any teenager being called that when they’re still kids, basically, but maybe the harsh criticism the public is directing at her will give her the guidance she is clearly lacking from the adults, particularly the men, in her life. i wish her the best. i think she is a very sweet girl with a lot of talent, at least vocally. i don’t know her acting.

I saw her new video just now and I have to say, she’s come a long way from being the young lady I’d let my daughter watch on TV. I guess that’s apropos because she has gotten older since then but we won’t be buying any more of her albums. It’s just not kosher for young girls anymore, her image has moved beyond that into the land of Lady Gaga.

do they try to do it to their 44 year old teachers? and, if they did, would the teacher just go along with it? and, if the teacher did go along with it, what would happen to him/her?

u probably haven’t read my other posts, but i have not once bashed miley for this. i am disturbed by the men in her life, if this is the behavior they are promoting. i’m not relying on rumor, i’m watching it with my own eyes- in this video, and in pictures that 44 year old man has posted of miley on his twitter acct. if you don’t understand what a pig he is, you’re probably not very old. i’m not trying to be condescending to you, but i actually think this is something where young girls, particularly teenagers, do not understand the mine fields they are dodging from these creepy old guys that convince them that this kind of sexuality is the way they need to be. she needs to figure out for herself what sexuality she wants to have and portray- how she wants to show it- and it’s perfectly natural for her to be a little “inappropriate” as she figures it out. but it’s not appropriate for the adults to stand by and not just not provide guidance, but to affirmatively encourage her to be so overtly sexy at such an inappropriate time. the guy shouldn’t be telling her it’s okay for her to rub her ass on his prick in the middle of a room that has children in it. sorry to be so vulgar, but that’s what the video shows, and nobody has said it’s doctored, not her father, and not this guy who has yet to issue a statement on the matter.

He is right! That is what people our age do, that is what we do at dances, at parties. She is just living her life, she is not living it for any of us. So why do people care what she does? It is not like it is making a difference in our lives. To parents, your kids will grind to. To kids, you will do it to. To teens, you have done it! So what is so wrong about Miley doing it? Last I checked she is probably one of the most luckiest teens in America.

i don’t think you’re all doing it with your 44 year old employer are you? but, i agree that miley, the 16 year old at the time, shouldn’t be harassed by this. i’m kind of embarassed and sad for her that she is under a microscope at this time in her life when she’s still figuring it and herself all out. but, that’s how life goes… as for the guy, i’m not willing to give him a pass on this, even though hollywood and the media apparently are. that’s the sad and disgusting part. the roman polanski-like sh!t will go on forever in that world.

#1 Why is age discrimination so prevalent in North America. Miley’s old enough to make her own decisions. In many Countries the age of consent is 16 years and lower in some.

#2 Y’all are falling for this publicity campaign hook line and sinker. Don’t you think it’s a little coincidental that that Miley’s sexy hind grinding video was released just after her new video. BTW if it wasn’t for the bedsheet photo’s 2 years ago most of America above the age of 15 wouldn’t know who the hell Miley Cyrus is.Talk about raunch promotion, Look how the Christina Agulara’s Dirrty video launched her career…to the moon.

Face It we Americans only pay attention to sex and controversy The proof is right here and promoters know it.

i agree re the publicity campaign, but that doesn’t make me any less repulsed by the old queen that’s using miley to either get off on, or to make himself more attractive to others. someone his age, and in his position (as her employer), should not have been behaving in that manner. he’s a disgusting old pig.

Again The age discrimination thing again. It seem to really piss you off. Would it make any difference if she was 18 at the time. I doubt it. 44 is not particularly old, and men being men are still attracted to young women and sometimes form lasting relationships. In fact it goes both ways. I see nothing wrong with the 52 year old Madonna going out with a guy over half her age. Funny thing is most age bigots feel somewhat the same way.
It’s ok for the Woman but a mans a pig if he’s interested in younger women.
Besides it was just dancing by two people that know each other very well for the purpose of increasing Miley’s audience and demographics, they used the gay guy to slightly buffer the negative affects. I wouldn’t get your panties too tied up in a knot about it.

age discrimination is a legal term of art with a very specific definition. don’t throw it around so loosely and ignorantly. people “discriminate” every day, and sometimes it is appropriate, and very much legal. i personally would still be repulsed by any teenager (13-19) being this intimate with a middle aged person (male, female, whatever- it just happens more frequently with teenage girls, than boys); but i probably would be less vocal about it if it were an 18 year old. two years at that age makes a big difference. i’m not sure why i am responding to you though b/c you are clearly not very old, wise, or educated. do you think pedophiles are the victims of age discrimination, too? where do you draw the line? last i checked, madonna isn’t inappropriately rubbing the genitals or backsides of teenage boys. there is a huge difference between a 16 year old and a 26 year old, or whatever her guy’s age is/was. your arguments are to put it most simply for you, dumb. stop embarrassing yourself.

dwight: some of us are not upset with miley, but are disgusted with the 44 year old that was getting his kicks off of her. i agree that 16 year olds make mistakes, and i don’t fault miley for letting loose and exploring her sexuality as much as i fault her employer (the guy whose crotch she is stroking with her ass) who is almost three times her age. that’s what some of us are up in arms about- not the fact that a teenager was exploring and being inappropriate (inappropriate particularly b/c the audience watching her included children).

why isn’t s(h/k)ankman commenting on this, and why are no media outlets forcing his hand? is he that untouchable, b/c a lot of us are caring enough about this to want to pin that guy down on it. so why does the media just give him a pass on this? i consider that as much of the problem as billy ray’s ignorant position. you guys have a duty to pursue this guy, in my opinion, and make him give a statement as to why his behavior with a 16 year old was appropriate. the guys is everywhere, on twitter, and such- he’s not hard to find. why haven’t you tried to contact him and get HIS statement? why hasn’t anybody? seriously? it outrages me that none of the media takes their responsibility serious. i know this is just “trash” and gossip, but this is a serious issue, and the journalists should be taking it as such. has hl reached out to SKANKMAN’S people for a comment? remember when he posted the slutty makeup room poses from miley on his twitter account? he had a quick snippy response to the complaints on that one. what’s his response to letting her grind on his crotch, and encouraging and allowing that behavior? i’ve heard NOTHING on this and cannot imagine why no media outlets have pursued this with him. again, is this perve really that untouchable that nobody will even ask him a f’ing question? very angry and disgusted…

Besides being inappropriate….
Question……Why isn’t that something like “Gross Sexual Imposition”? He’s 44 and she’s 16 (at the time). I know she was doing it to him, but in the video, he was encouraging it and touching her. Let that happen in some other club with a “no name” person and the guy is in jail for molestation of a minor!!!

yet again, neither billy ray nor this article attacks the true wrongdoer in this scenario. i don’t mind too much that he is supporting his daughter in public, but as we all know, this is not appropriate behavior and her contacts with people like shankman who not only don’t realize it, but encourage it (see makeup chair pics) should be cut off. i’m going to just hope that billy ray is doing something privately that he’s not doing publicly.

Lap What?

OK Dad it is time to pull your little girl to the side and give her a lesson in what is “Socially Acceptable Behavior.”
Especially now because she is a teenage public figure and a role model to countless numbers of teenage girls. Not even playing around is this type of behavior acceptable.

Hey maybe Dad is aching to be a “Grand-parent!” Worse yet this child could easily become a “Sexual Assault Statistic.” Wake UP Dad!!!!
