Dolly Parton is Miley Cyrus‘ Godmother, and she isn’t afraid to defend some of her controversial actions and attire. Dolly told the press that she totally understands what Miley is going through in her career right now, because she went through the same thing!
Yeah, well I do [understand what Miley is going through], ’cause back in the day, doing my own things my own way, and dressing sexy and showing my cleavage and all that, I got a lot of criticism. Lots of people thought I was making a mistake and that I was just trashy, which I was. So I did go through that, but I don’t give her advice. Everyone has to walk this journey according to their own rules. That’s what she’s doing. And I lurve her.
Dolly also opened up to the media that while sometimes Miley goes to extremes she knows that Miley has full knowledge of what she is doing with her career!
I’ve known her daddy [Billy Ray Cyrus] the many years he’s been in the business. I’ve watched her grow up. She’s a smart girl. She had to go to extremes to get her point across. I think she got the point across.
We would have to agree! Not many people equate Miley with her former Disney Channel character Hannah Montana anymore!
Dolly also revealed that she is working on a biopic movie about her life. We have our hearts set on Miley starring in the movie, but that would mean Miley would have to take a break from making music, and we’re not sure she’s up for it! Only time will tell!
