Billy Ray Cyrus: I wasn’t there when the Vanity Fair pics were taken
He told yesterday’s Today show: “I wasn’t there at the time [but Miley’s] publicist was there, and everyone seemed in control.
“I didn’t know they [were] gonna strip her down and wrap her with a blanket.
“So I was surprised when I saw it, you know, but … stuff happens. That’s life. Things happen and sometimes things get a little out of control and you just gotta deal with life. It’s peaks and valleys and ups and downs.”
He added that he still considers Annie Leibovitz a “good person and a great photographer” but wishes he had stayed around the chaperone the entire shoot.
