Miley Cyrus boyfriend Liam Hemsworth has her back, rushing to defend his girlfriend following her lap dance video. But her father Billy Ray Cyrus thinks it’s normal.
The Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has been dating the Australian actor Liam Hemsworth since they met on the set of their film The Last Song.
According to Toronto Sun, A video from the movie’s wrap party sparked controversy last week, with footage of Cyrus, who was 16 years old at the time, grinding up against a 44-year-old producer on the dance floor.
But Hemsworth is adamant his girlfriend shouldn’t let the media storm bother her, because the criticism is all part of being a star.
Miley Cyrus boyfriend Liam Hemsworth said: “Everyone gets criticism, it’s kind of what comes with this job – everybody’s trying to bring you down.”
“She’s got a good head on her shoulders.”
Liam clearly isn’t put off by his girlfriends ranchy dancing.
Hemsworth also added: “We get along great, she’s a great girl. We work great together.”
Miley Cyrus’s father Billy Ray Cyrus has spoken out in defense of his hip-swinging grind-happy daughter. Miley has come under fire recently, since footage of her dirty dancing with Last Song producer Adam Shankman, 40, leaked online. There are some who believe it’s inappropriate that a then 16-year-old girl was grinding with her (openly gay) producer at a party where children were present. Her father, is not one of those people. It’s fathers like these that lead to some very slutty little children.
“It’s what people her age do,” Billy Ray Cyrus said.
