Billy Ray, meanwhile, has not addressed the subject of his daughter's provocative performance at all on Twitter.

tweets following the VMAs have been about
the tragedy in Syria and getting back into the studio to record music. Ironically, the singer also celebrated his 52nd birthday on Sunday night.
