Miley Cyrus is preparing to co-star in a New Year’s Eve special with her godmother, who happens to be the country music legend Dolly Parton. In a new interview, Cyrus has revealed that Parton “clutched her pearls” when she let her know that she was considering dyeing her hair for the show. 

Cyrus ‘Scared’ Parton With One Suggestion

“I’ve never seen Dolly actually scared before,” Cyrus said, according to Fox News. “But I told her, you know, at the end of the year, I was really wanting to do something different. I think I’m going to dye my hair brunette. She acted like I told her the worst news you could imagine.”

“‘You can’t do that! You are me!’” Cyrus alleged that Parton told her in response. “So I’m somehow some extension of Dolly Parton where she looked like I had just given her the worst news you’ve ever heard.”

In the end, Parton got her way, as she and Cyrus will both be blonde during the show on Saturday night.

Cyrus’ New Year’s Resolution

In this same interview, Cyrus revealed that her own New Year’s resolution for 2023 actually came from Carl Dean, who Parton has been married to for 56 years. 

“I guess my resolution would really be — my instinct is very loud, but I’m not a great listener sometimes,” she said. “Dolly was telling me, her husband says, ‘You’re not hard of hearing. You’re hard of listening.’ And I guess that would kind of be my resolution, to not just listen to myself, but listen to others.”

Cyrus and Parton will be co-starring in the second annual “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party” special on NBC on Saturday night.

“The inaugural Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party was an unqualified success and we know this year’s show will be just as spectacular, with plenty of surprises and lots of fun,” NBCUniversal executive Jen Neal told US Magazine. “We can’t wait to get the party started.”

Parton’s Love For Cyrus

Parton has long been open about how much she loves Cyrus. 

“Just getting to be with her, and letting people kind of see our relationship in addition to how well our voices blend,” Parton said of Cyrus earlier this month, according to Today.

“I’ve always loved her, since she was little, and I knew she was special,” Parton once told Marie Claire. “She just had a light about her. Her sparkle, and her smile, and her eyes were always full of wonder.”

When Cyrus was going through her very public divorce from the Hollywood star Liam Hemsworth back in 2019, Parton didn’t hesitate to have her goddaughter’s back publicly. 

“Lord, I’ve done everything, and what I ain’t done, I intend to,” Parton told People Magazine at the time. “She’s going to do that, too. But Miley’s smart; Miley knows what she’s doing.”

“I know we think she doesn’t, and she might not every minute, but I still know that she’s got good stuff in her,” she added.

Many fans will likely be surprised to learn that Parton is Cyrus’ godmother, as they are not a duo that most people would think of as being linked together. We can’t wait to see what they bring to their New Year’s Eve show on Saturday, and we wish them both the best of luck with it!
