Cyrus defends relationship with dad
The Hannah Montana star is frequently at her musician father's side in public - even inviting him to star on the hit Disney show as her on-screen dad.
She also posed with Billy Ray for a series of snaps in Vanity Fair magazine last year (08), which showed Miley reclining against her dad as he puts his arm around her shoulder.
The shots were slammed by critics because of the pair's father-daughter relationship - but in her new memoir, Miles To Go, the teenager hits back.
She writes, "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.
"We don't let other people tell us what expressions we're supposed to have on our faces when we take a picture together!"
