Dolly Parton Defends Goddaughter Miley Cyrus: “Nobody Was Going To Let Her Grow Up”

  • Dolly Parton has finally weighed in on Miley Cyrus’ VMAs performance. She happens to think her goddaughter’s performance was fantastic, thank you very much. “I admire her, I respect her, she’s smart, and she’s so talented,” said Dolly. “And Billy Ray and me will never say nothing bad about Miley ’cause Miley obviously knew what she was doing. She knew she had to go to drastic measures to let people leave her alone, ’cause nobody was going to let her grow up.” Dolly has spoken and so it is decreed.   [Perez Hilton]
