Billy Ray on Miley Cyrus Nude Photo: Stuff Happens

by at . Comments

On the Today show this morning, Billy Ray Cyrus finally commented on the infamous Vanity Fair photo of his daughter posing topless.

The country crooner pleaded ignorance when it came to Miley Cyrus stripping down for the camera.

"I didn't know they were going to strip her down and wrap her in a blanket," said Cyrus, appearing on the program to promote Nashville Star, adding of the topless shot of his daughter: "I was surprised when I saw it ... but, hey, that's life. Stuff happens."

It does, indeed, Billy Ray.

As for the picture of Miley with her dad, striking a pose that appeared more suitable between a boyfriend and girlfriend rather than a father and daughter, the elder Cyrus laughed at such a notion.

"That's just a daddy who loves his daughter a whole lot," he said.

Note to Billy Ray: that doesn't make it seem any less creepy.
