Billy Ray Cyrus was on the Today show this morning, talking about the Vanity Fair/Annie Leibovitz shoot with his daughter, Miley Cyrus. Billy Ray was eloquent, in a country way, when he explained that he left the set before the much-discussed cover photograph was taken. "It felt like everything was in control," he says. "I didn't know they was gonna strip her down and wrap her with a blanket." Billy also claims that he didn't talk to Ms. Leibovitz or Vanity Fair when he found out about the pseudo-topless-looking image because "the more you stomp in poop, the more it stinks." He also said: "The turkey with the longest neck is gonna be the one everybody's shootin' at." Haha! Don't you miss Dan Rather?
