Dolly Parton has playfully poked fun at Miley Cyrus during a performance on a US TV show.

The country superstar did a comical rap on The Queen Latifah Show and made a joking reference to Miley, who has been in the headlines for weeks as a result of her controversial performance at the MTV VMAs and appearing nude in her Wrecking Ball video.

During the song Dolly commented on her own ample chest and at one point, motioning to her assets, she sang: " Miley, I've got your wrecking balls right here."

Dolly also rhymed "I'm working!" with "I'm twerking!" in one verse, although she didn't attempt the dance move made famous by Miley, who is her goddaughter.

The 67-year-old, clad in a tight back outfit, also teased music star Queen Latifah during her performance, singing: "Queen Latifah, she da queen of hip-hop, rap and TV screen. She da queen of her own hood, but I'm the queen of Dollywood."
