Still my little girl, says Miley's dad

Singer-songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus has supported his pop star daughter Miley's twerking act saying she is still his little girl.

"Miley (has) harnessed into something very special. 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," said Billy Ray, reports

He appeared on Piers Morgan's talk show Thursday and discussed his thoughts on his daughter's racy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, which created a lot of buzz.

When Morgan first brought up the issue saying that as a father, he wouldn't be too pleased if his daughter "turned to twerking", Billy Ray seemed to divert from the question a bit.

But for Billy Ray, the act by his daughter was her way of stripping herself from her "Hannah Montana" image.

"I'm her daddy. I come for that school of as a singer-songwriter, as a musician, that it starts with a song. And it's that magic moment when a song finds the right artist, the right singer, and it becomes a synchronicity of that moment in time," he said.
