"Everyone is all over me now like I'm supposed to answer for Miley. I admire her, I respect her, she's smart, and she's so talented. 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 just leave her alone 'cause nobody was going to let her grow up... I'm not saying nothing bad about Miley." Dolly Parton insists she won't be publicly criticising her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, no matter what she does to drum up publicity.
