Miley Cyrus has been raising a lot of eye brows lately, but one person who isn't too concerned is her godmother Dolly Parton.

The singer tells People magazine that she understands what Miley's going through because she went through it too.

"Yeah, well I do, 'cause 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," the 68-year-old explained.

"So I did go through that, but I don't give her advice. Everyone has to walk this journey according to their own rules. That's what she's doing. And I lurve her."

Dolly is currently on a world tour in support of her new album, "Blue Smoke."
