Dolly Parton Defends Miley Cyrus

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features,

Dolly Parton and Miley CyrusDolly Parton thinks young singers, like Miley Cyrus, almost have to sacrifice their souls to make an impact.

The 67-year-old star has defended her goddaughter against her critics following a string of controversial performances and photo-shoots, and doesn't think people realize how talented the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker is.

"It's not easy being young. It's hard to know what to do. You've almost got to sacrifice your damn soul just to get anything done. I've loved her through the years and watched her grow up, and I've seen how smart she is and how talented she is. I don't think people really realize yet what a great singer and writer she really is," the country singer told the London Evening Standard.

Although she and Miley are close, Dolly said she wouldn't dare give the 20-year-old star advice about her career: "She's just trying to find her own place and wings and learn to fly. If she needs my opinion on something I will surely give it and there have been times we've talked. But I would never dream of calling her and saying, 'Well why are you doing this?' or, 'You shouldn't do this or that.' I know that she has thought this all through. We'll let her go and do her own thing."

Paul McCartney lays flowers at Whitney Houston's memorialSir Paul McCartney has personally laid flowers for Whitney Houston. The Beatles legend was in Los Angeles when the 48-year-old singer was found dead at the city's Beverly Hilton hotel on Saturday and wanted to leave a personal tribute to the "I Will Always Love You" star.

He was seen with wife Nancy Shevell at the makeshift memorial created outside the hotel yesterday dressed casually, and left a bouquet of yellow roses at the scene. When fans tried to congratulate Paul on his performance at the Grammy Awards the previous night, he shrugged it off.

"This is about Whitney, not me," TMZ reports that he insisted.

Following Whitney's passing, a host of stars have paid tribute to the singer. Mariah Carey tweeted, "Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston."

Dolly Parton’s Large Front Causes Problems with Her Back

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music,

Dolly PartonAdd large breasts to a tiny frame and what do you get?  A postponed concert tour.

Although she was weeks away from promoting her latest album, has been asked to give herself - and her gals - a rest.

It seems the country singer, who is probably best known for being full of life as well as her full bra, needs to take care of some ongoing physical issues.  As Parton put it, “Hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don’t have back problems.”

Unfortunately a prescribed break will mean a delay of her upcoming shows.  The tour - originally scheduled to begin at the end of this month - will now be pushed back until at least April.

Until then, Dolly’s next album, Backwoods Barbie, will be available in stores Feb. 26th.
