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.”
