If you don’t love Dolly Parton, you need to check yourself before you wreck yourself. She’s amazing! She’s a music legend and also hilarious as a personality, as well. So when Dolly says we all oughta be a little nicer to Miley Cyrus (who is her goddaughter, by the way), we should probably listen to her, right? I mean… right?
From the Sunday Times Magazine (via People):
“Yeah, well I do, ’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,” says the singer and songwriter, 68.
“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.”
“I’ve known her daddy [Billy Ray Cyrus] the many years he’s been in the business. I’ve watched her grow up,” Parton says. “She’s a smart girl. She had to go to extremes to get her point across. I think she got the point across.”
I mean, in a sense, I do see her point. People did think Dolly was trashy, but I can pretty much guarantee that Dolly wasn’t on stage simulating blowjobs on a giant blow up penis before riding it or spreading her ass cheeks as she pushes them open to an arena audience. There’s a slight difference there, I fear.
