"She has thought this all through."
Speaking to The Evening Standard, Dolly Parton shared her views on her controversial goddaughter Miley Cyrus, saying that Cyrus has "thought this all through." Below are some highlights:
Parton on how smart and talented Cyrus is: "I'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."
Parton on not feeling the need to give Cyrus career advice: "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."
