Dolly Parton told The Sunday Times that she understands what her goddaughter Miley Cyrus is going through when it comes to fame and criticism.

In the recent interview, the legendary singer said she can relate because “back in the day, doing my own things my own way, and dressing sexy and showing my cleavage and all that, I got a lot of criticism.”

“Lots of people thought I was making a mistake and that I was just trashy, which I was,” she continued. “So I did go through that, but I don’t give her advice.”

Parton noted that “everyone has to walk this journey according to their own rules.”

“That’s what she’s doing. And I lurve her,” she added.

The country star also supports Cyrus’ wild on-stage antics.

Parton felt Cyrus is “just trying to find her own place and wings and learn to fly.”

“I’ve known her daddy [Billy Ray Cyrus] the many years he’s been in the business. I’ve watched her grow up,” she said. “She’s a smart girl. She had to go to extremes to get her point across. I think she got the point across.”
