The appreciation between Miley Cyrus and godmother Dolly Parton is mutual.
Just a week after the country legend publicly supported her controversial goddaughter, the pop singer told a German television show that Parton "has always been my role model."
"She's a legend and unlike anyone I've ever seen before," Cyrus, 20, told Wetten ... Dass? during an appearance Saturday, which also included a performance of her hit, "Wrecking Ball" while dressed in an ensemble even she likened to a strawberry.

Despite all the controversy surrounding her love of twerking, risqué VMA performance and feud with Sinéad O'Connor, Miley Cyrus says she's never been happier.
During an appearance on the Today show Monday, Cyrus, 20, told Matt Lauer, "I'm the happiest I've ever been in my whole life."
"The most important thing is being a really good person," the "Wrecking Ball" singer told Lauer when he asked about her the music video's nudity and VMA performance, which he deemed a "strategic hot mess." "And that doesn't depend on what you do on stage, that depends on how you treat people when you're off stage, and I know how I treat people."
She continued, "I don't ever really plan to offend people, but sometimes that just happens because ... they're not open to what they don't understand. But my fans understand. [The VMAs] went exactly as planned. I mean, it's a month later, and we're still talking about it ... so it worked."

Miley Cyrus cautioned viewers she wouldn't be twerking on Saturday Night Live.
But she commanded the stage on this week's edition of the NBC sketch comedy show, serving as both host and musical guest.
And she did some shimmying as an over-sexed Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in a parody video about the government shutdown.
