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.

Not everyone was a fan of Miley Cyrus's twerk-fest at the MTV Video Music Awards, nor her risqué "Wrecking Ball" video.

But despite her recent over-the-top antics, the 20-year-old pop star has one strong supporter: her godmother, Dolly Parton.

In an interview published Friday, the legendary country singer told the London Evening Standard that Cyrus is "just trying to find her own place and wings and learn to fly."

Hey, everyone! I can honestly say that this episode had some of my very favorite dates!

I've lived in Charlotte for a long time, but I never in a million years imagined I'd be climbing the wall of a museum that Ricki and I go to often. Judging by Chris's face when the ropes came down the side of the building, I think he would've rather been at my house carrying in all my groceries like Ryan did last week!

As scary as it was climbing up the side of the building, the fact that there was a huge storm heading our way made it that much worse. Not only was I scared of falling, but also of getting struck by lightening!

Dolly Parton: I Don't Have a Cleavage Tattoo – Yet

She may have starred in Steel Magnolias, but it was a different type of flower that had everyone talking about Dolly Parton recently.

A photo of Parton, 65, at the premiere of her new film, Joyful Noise, appears to show a rose tattoo in her cleavage – but the country superstar insists it was fake.

"Was that not the ugliest picture you've ever seen?" Parton scoffed, when Anderson Cooper asked her about the tattoo on his talk show. "That looks like something obscene."

Dolly Parton sure can be handful – just ask Ryan Seacrest.

Katy, meet Polly.

Long before a cleavage-baring Katy Perry, 25, sent parents into a tizzy for her recent rendition of her hit "Hot N Cold" alongside Elmo, Sesame Street featured a busty guest of its own creation: Polly Darton.

Modeled after Dolly Parton, the country singer known for her own ample assets, Polly Darton cropped up on the children's program from 1981 to 1993.

Billed as "the sweetest little package in down-home country goodness," Polly Darton parodied some of Parton's greatest hits, including "9 to 5," whose lyrics had been tweaked for the show's preschool audience to "counting [from] 1 to 5."
