Dolly defends goddaughter Miley’s raunchy image
London: Dolly Parton has defended her "honorary goddaughter" Miley Cyrus over her raunchy new image.
The 17-year-old Disney star has been in the limelight for some weeks for her saucy onstage antics while promoting her new album ‘Can`t Be Tamed’.
But Parton has defended Cyrus, insisting that she is going through a rebellious phase and she shouldn`t be judged too harshly.
"I`ve known her since she was a baby. I hate it when people criticise her. (She is my) honorary goddaughter,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Fox News.
"She is a great singer; she has a great voice. She`s a great little entertainer and she can speak to you like she is 50 years old.”
"She`ll land in the right place. I really know she has everything it takes. She is just trying to find her way and she will," she added.
