It’s one thing to have the support of your parents.

It’s another thing to have the support of your parents when you’re grinding with a stripper pole and then with a group of caged guys in a music video.

First, Billy Ray Cyrus assesed his daughter’s controversial pole dance at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards by simply saying Miley “loves entertaining people.”

Now, he apparently sees no problem with Miley prancing around in a provocative outfit and sexing it up with a bunch of guys in her video for “Can’t Be Tamed.”

“My dad loves it,” the former Disney star told MTV News of the video. “[He] was thinking I was a little crazy while I was writing it because when you’re hearing ‘feathers coming out of your hands,’ [you think] ‘oh wow, looks crazy!’

“[But] they were so proud of the treatment that I came up for it.”

Fan reaction to the video has been mixed. Some are happy to see Miley embracing a provocative, mature side; others believe she’s setting a bad example for her young fan base.

It’s no shock that Billy Ray is on Miley’s side, though. This is the same father that let his nine-year old daughter walk the red carpet in THIS OUTFIT.
