Billy Ray Cyrus has defended his daughter Miley Cyrus's performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Cyrus caused controversy for dancing suggestively with a foam finger and twerking as Robin Thicke sang 'Blurred Lines' at the August awards show.
Her father Billy Ray has now told Access Hollywood that Miley was furthering her artist development with her performance at the MTV VMAs.
"She's a very smart young lady," he said. "She wanted to shake things up a little bit and mission accomplished."

I don't know, for a supposedly "very smart young lady", you would think she wouldn't be making fun of mental illness and antisemitism.
