Billy Ray Cyrus finally commented on his daughter, Miley Cyrus performance at the VMA’s.  He told Entertainment Tonight, “Of course I’ll always be here for Miley.  Can’t wait [to] see her when she gets home.  She’s still my little girl and I’m still her dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out.  I love her unconditionally and that will never change.”

You’ll never guess who’s ALSO got Miley’s back Justin Timberlake.  Check out what he said about her performance yesterday on a radio sation in New York City…I like Miley.  I like her a lot.  I think, you know, she’s young.  She’s letting everybody know that she’s growing up…It’s not like she did it at the Grammys.  Let her do her thing, you know?”  Justin says his favorite part was the picture of Will Smith and his kids reacting to Miley’s performance. But some people don’t realize that photo was actually taken during Lady Gaga‘s performance.

And on the topic of that word we’ve heard so much in the last few day “twerking” it just doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Especially since it’s JUST BEEN ADDED TO THE DICTIONARY.

Oxford Dictionaries Online (ODO) is adding a bunch of words that only recently came into general usage through trends in technology and culture, and yes that means, “twerk” is now in the dictionary.  Also “selfie”, and “phablet” a  combination of “phone” and “tablet” used to describe oversized smartphones. These words are only going into the ODO, which prides itself on staying up-to-date with modern lingo.
