Billy Ray Cyrus is speaking out about the infamous Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair photo shoot, which stirred up tons of controversy earlier this year. “I didn’t know they were going to strip her down and wrap her in a blanket,” he said to the Today show. “I was surprised when I saw it … but, hey, that’s life. Stuff happens.” Why didn’t the public see him complaining? “cause my dad always said, ‘The more you stomp in poop, the more it stinks.’ ” He also explained the reason he left the shoot: To entertain troops back in Iraq. “I had a show to do and an obligation,” he said.
