miley-cyrus-pole-dancingWhat reaction did you expect Billy Ray Cyrus to have towards his daughter Miley's pole dancing performance at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards a couple of weeks ago? If you thought it would be shocked and disgust you were way off. You must remember this is the man who stood by and okayed Miley's scandalous Vanity Fair photo shoot last year. Here's some pics to remind you.Miley Cyrus in 'Vanity Fair'Miley Cyrus 'Vanity Fair' photo controversy Being that Miley's pole dancing raised a lot of eyebrows, Access Hollywood wanted to know what her father thought about her scandalous performance. Billy Ray said, "You know what? I just think that Miley loves entertaining people. She loves singing [and] songwriting. I always tell her to love what you're doing and stay focused for the love of the art and not worry so much about opinion. I give my kids a lot of freedom to make the art they wanna make, and make it in their own voice. I think it's important."Ok so it's one thing if you child does stupid stuff when they're at least 18 and on their own, but it's another thing when your child is 16, beyond famous, and living under your roof. Choices like pole dancing in front of millions of little kids who look up to you is not such a smart decision. That is the moment when a parent needs to put their foot down. I wonder how Billy Ray feels about his 9 year old daughter Noah pole dancing the night before. You caught those pictures right?
