What Does Dolly Parton Really Think About Controversial Goddaughter Miley Cyrus?

dolly-parton-main_thumbI’ve loved her through the years and watched her grow up, and I’ve seen how smart she is and how talented she is. I don’t think people really realize yet what a great singer and writer she really is. She’s just trying to find her own place and wings and learn to fly. If she needs my opinion on something I will surely give it and there have been times we’ve talked. But I would never dream of calling her and saying, ‘Well why are you doing this?’ or, ‘You shouldn’t do this or that.’ I know that she has thought this all through. We’ll let her go and do her own thing. I would love to do some duets with her. I would love to sing with her and write with her because I think she is so gifted. It’s not easy being young. It’s hard to know what to do. You’ve almost got to sacrifice your damn soul just to get anything done.”

    I am completely unsurprised by her response. Dolly Parton is probably the single most non-judgmental human being I have ever seen. The fact that she has been judged so harshly early in her career and still
    manages to be so accepting and sympathetic towards people just makes me admire her all the more. The world needs more Dolly Parton

    @bigomega73: Amen. I adore Dolly.

    @bigomega73: We could all learn a lesson from Dolly, when it comes to her non-judgmental approach to human relationships.

    The world has obviously dumbed down and become tamer than ever because I don’t consider Miley Cyrus to be “controversial” at all. Nothing she has done has been shocking or newsworthy. A young girl sticks her tongue out and dances slightly provocatively and she becomes headline news across the western world, REALLY ? Did she really deserve all that attention ? She is smart. She got free publicity that pushed her album sales up. WE are the idiots for being so shocked at something so childish and silly.
