Public opinion about Miley Cyrusstripper-tastic performance at this year’s Teen Choice Awards, but her daddy Billy Ray Cyrus doesn’t see anything wrong with his 16-year-old daughter swinging on a stripper pole on national TV.

“You know what? I just think that Miley loves entertaining people,” Cyrus tells Access Hollywood. “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.”

Sure. It might also be important to teach your underage daughter not to carry on like a stripper for the whole country to see.

But then, this is the same guy who didn’t see anything wrong with posing for Vanity Fair with his teenage daughter draped across his lap.
