Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton are reuniting to host “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party” in celebration of 2023’s arrival, however their New Year’s collaboration is way from the primary time the pair can have shared a stage or expressed their love for one another. Cyrus introduced Parton with the first-ever hitmaker award at Billboard’s Women in Music occasion in 2020, describing Parton as her “very treasured fairy godmother” in a heartfelt tribute speech. Earlier that very same 12 months, Parton informed Marie Claire she at all times knew Cyrus was destined for greatness. “I really like Miley. I feel she’s nice. She’s on the market, and I really like that she takes her probabilities,” she mentioned. “I really like that she’s true to herself and that she’s keen to strive new issues and do no matter. I’ve at all times liked her, since she was little, and I knew she was particular. She simply had a light-weight about her. Her sparkle, and her smile, and her eyes had been at all times stuffed with marvel.”
Previously, Cyrus was a part of Parton’s epic tribute efficiency throughout the 2019 Grammys, throughout which Parton sang the entire greatest jams from the unbelievable “Dumplin'”soundtrack together with a complete host of particular company together with Katy Perry, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and naturally, Cyrus. Just per week earlier than, Cyrus teamed up with Shawn Mendes for the MusiCares Person of the Year gala (which was held in honor of Parton) to sing Parton and Kenny Roger’s 1983 tune “Islands within the Stream.” Before the occasion, Cyrus even posted a sweet photo of her and Parton on Instagram with the caption, “It’s YOUR evening Aunt @dollyparton! Beyond deserved!”
Clearly, the pair share a particular relationship. So, all of it begs the query: are the 2 truly associated?
As shut as the 2 are (and as comparable as they may sound at instances!), Parton is definitely Cyrus’s godmother, not a blood relation. We completely perceive the confusion, although – Parton even made just a few cameo appearances taking part in Cyrus’s godmother on Disney’s “Hannah Montana,” although she was known as “Aunt Dolly” then, too. Her relationship with Cyrus stems from a long-lasting friendship with the pop star’s dad, fellow musician Billy Ray Cyrus, and simply as Cyrus at all times helps the music legend, Parton at all times has her goddaughter’s again in flip.
When Cyrus confronted criticism for her provocative outfits and performances again in 2013, Parton mentioned Cyrus was smarter than folks believed and wanted an opportunity to seek out her personal method, simply as Parton herself had. “She’s simply looking for her personal place and wings and study to fly,” she informed Evening Standard on the time. We’d say all the things turned out simply superb, so maybe godmother does know greatest. Check out the gallery for footage of the 2 gifted girls over time.
