    Billy Ray Cyrus Declares Miley's Pole Dancing "Art"

    Yeah, we still haven't forgotten Miley Cyrus taking the stripper pole for a spin during the Teen Choice Awards. Apparently, neither has her father.

    Only, Billy Ray Cyrus doesn't find it quite as appalling as we—and, judging by your comments, you—did. In fact, the proud papa thinks it was downright entertaining.

    "You know what? I just think that Miley loves entertaining people," he tells Access Hollywood.

    People were entertained all right, but not exactly in the way a 16-year-old's father would necessarily want. Then again, this is the boot-scootin' dad who set up his teenager with a 20-year-old boy.

    "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," he adds.

    Art = pole dancing. Got it.
