Even though the oddly posed, uncomfortable, "Should you be taking pictures like that with your dad?" Vanity Fair photoshoot made Miley and Billy Ray seem stronger than ever, the elder Cyrus started causing a split in their relationship soon after. Not only did he compare her to Anna Nicole Smith but he attacked Disney, who made him relevant again, saying that Hannah Montana destroyed his family.

Maybe it was her salvia incident that broke his achy breaky heart, but Miley felt betrayed that her father's comments seemed to come out of nowhere. And then, naturally, she started taking sexy Twitpics and hugging poles at awards shows. Not a bad way to cope, huh?
