Billy Ray To Miley Cyrus: I Woulda Done The Same Thang

Miley Cyrus’ dad has got her back.

The 20-year-old singer took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to share a quote from her famous father about that much-talked-about performance at the MTV Video Music Awards of hers, writing,:

This. Is. Great. I love how Miley made sure to capture her father’s Southern accent by writing “thang” instead of thing. And although I’m sure Billy Ray would be an excellent twerker, we all know the man has killer dance moves of his own:

Papa Cyrus already commented on his daughter’s raunchy VMAs spectacle, telling Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell, “She’s still my little girl and I’m still her Dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change.”

You tell ‘em, Billy Ray.

And remember: The family that twerks together, works together! (That’s not a real thing. Please don’t listen to that.)
