Miley Cyrus is a great musician: Snoop Dogg

London: Snoop Dogg, who recently collaborated on a single with Miley Cyrus, has described the singer as "one of the greatest musicians and personalities of all time".

The rapper got together with Cyrus on the new track `Ashtrays and Heartbreaks`. Snoop sympathised with the singer-actress, who he feels is often criticised by the press unfairly.

"She loves what I do and I really love what she does, so for us to come together, it`s bold and courageous. People just expect so much from her because they`ve been watching her whole life, from being a kid. She`s just ready to be a grown up and express herself, and I support it," he said.

Asked how the `Ashtrays and Heartbreak` duet came about, Snoop recalled, "It`s basically what we are both going through right now. We`re both going through transformation, we both love making music and doing what we do and speaking from our hearts, and it`s just a great collaboration."
