Commenting on public scrutiny to the video’s nudity, Cyrus said, “It wouldn’t have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt, a tux or a nun’s habit.”

Billy Ray, who also defended his daughter’s raunchy MTV VMA performance wants people to focus on her vocal assets, and not her … assets. He concluded, “Her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God given talent.”
