Miley Cyrus Defends Her “Cuddly” Relationship With Father Billy Ray

In her upcoming memoir “Miles To Go,” Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus responds to accusations that her relationship with dad (and Hannah Montana co-star) Billy Ray Cyrus is a little too close:

“The media has said some stuff about my dad and me being too close and too cuddly for a father and a daughter. For me and my dad it’s not weird at all.”

The public controversy stems from a Vanity Fair photoshoot by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz last year, which included this photo of Miley and pop looking mighty sultry:

Starcasm recently came into possession of some images that support Miley’s defense. They are leftovers from the Annie Leibovitz Vanity Fair shoot that started it all, and show father and daughter in some more mundane poses, participating in normal, everyday father and daughter activities.

The first is Miley and Billy making some pottery together:

Awwwwww! Next is an image of the two of them just hangin’ out in an apartment:

And last is father and daughter sharing a bowl of spaghetti (probably a birthday or anniversary of some sort, if the candle in the bottle is any indication):

So you people lay off of Miley and Billy! There ain’t nothing weird going on at all!
