Hannah Montana fans can say goodbye to the adorable Disney star and hello to the tongue-wagging twerk legend, Miley Cyrus. Cyrus, 20, shocked the world earlier this year during her racy performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, where the singer's risqué routine with a foam finger left many in the blogosphere asking, "Where's her mother?"

"Right beside her," Cyrus mom, Tish, replied to anyone who wants to know. In a clip from MTV's upcoming documentary "Miley: The Movement," Tish affirmed her undying support for her famous daughter, "through good, through bad, through arguments, through crying, I don't care what … right there."

In the scene, mother and daughter share an intimate moment, with Tish massaging Miley's back as she prepares for an upcoming performance. In the midst of heavy media scrutiny, Tish has her daughter's back, and for that Miley offers this endearing statement of appreciation.
