Cyrus said the teenage superstar "loves what she does for a living," and then he went on to discuss the Vanity Fair photo scandal with Vieira. Vieira asked Cyrus what his reaction was after seeing the "seemingly looking topless" picture of his daughter, to which Cyrus responded, "I was surprised when I saw it, but again, stuff happens, thats life, things happen, sometimes things get a little out of control." Cyrus added that he "wasn't there when that picture was taken," and that he had no idea that "they were going to strip her down and wrap her with a blanket." However, it appears as though the Cyrus family has moved on from the incident, as Cyrus said "well this happened, we gotta deal with it."

Cyrus is currently filming her first feature, Hannah Montana: The Movie in Nashville, Tennessee.
