Creepy or really supportive? That’s for you to judge. When Miley lost her top for the cover of ‘Rolling Stone,’ she knew people were going to talk. But her parents still approve, HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned.
Miley Cyrus‘ father Billy Ray Cyrus has always supported his daughter. So, when she took her top off for Rolling Stone‘s October issue, it’s no surprise he once again is standing by her decision.
Miley Cyrus’ Parents React To ‘Rolling Stone’: Her Topless Cover Is Beautiful
Miley is topless on the cover of Rolling Stone and most of the inside pics — which are extremely risqué. However, while some may be judging the 20-year-old, her parents, Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray aren’t!
“Look she isn’t doing Playboy or porno, she is testing the limits and it is obviously working,” a source close to the family told HollywoodLife.com. “Rolling Stone is a legendary magazine and to be on it is very special in one’s career. Her parents have seen it and think its beautiful.”
The source added that her posing topless and twerking is “entertainment,” so they’re happy with it. “Miley has the world in her hands and to achieve that by doing stuff that people from Madonna to Britney Spears have done in the past to similar success but adding her own twist is totally fine with them,” they added.
Billy Ray Has Always Stood By His Daughter
On Sept. 17, Miley’s dad headed to Piers Morgan Tonight where he spoke out about Miley’s twerking and risqué behavior after her VMA performance. He defended her, saying that she was just trying to shed the good girl image she had — and that she was getting the attention she should be!
“Miley harnessed into something very special,” he explained. “She’s just Miley. She’s an artist, she’s real. I think that’s what’s happened over the years, Miley has been reinventing her sound. She’s evolving as an artist herself. I think that it’s all of what everyone is calling controversy now. That’s still my Miley.”
As for that twerking at the VMAs, he said, “You know, I think she could’ve went out and sang the song in a flannel shirt and a pair of jeans, and it would have still been just as strong. Would we have been here talking about it? No way.”
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that Miley’s parents are supportive?
