Parton said she realises the 20-year-old “has made some extreme moves” lately.

“You’ll never hear me say anything bad about Miley, I wish her all the best,” the 67-year-old told Miriam O’Callaghan on Radio One this morning.

“I love her to bits. I know she’s made some extreme moves, I know she had to prove her point.”

“I think she’s trying very hard to make her spot,” Dolly continued.

“She’s made her point and found her place and more power to her.”

The ‘Jolene’ singer said she won’t give Miley advice because she never wanted advice herself.

“I never wanted advice, I just wanted information,” Dolly laughed.

“Miley doesn’t need me, she’ll do it right on her own.

“I love her and I hope she does great.”

Dolly said her god-daughter, the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus, is a “great writer and a great singer”.

“People just have to let her get on with her life and do her music the way she wants to,” she said.

“Hopefully she’ll make wise choices. I hope she can just pull back and enjoy her music.”

Miley, the former Disney star Hannah Montana, returned to the headlines last year with her statement hair-cut as she revealed she was entering a “movement” of change.

The singer proceeded to shock with her raunchy social media photos, her provocative performance with Robin Thicke at this year’s MTV VMAs and her recent ‘Wrecking Ball’ video.

Country singer Dolly Parton will play three dates in Ireland next year as part of her ‘Blue Smoke’ world tour.
