"The 68-year-old explained how she was branded trashy, which is similar to how Cyrus is perceived by many."
Los Angeles, June 10 - Singer Dolly Parton is rushing to her 'god-daughter' Miley Cyrus's defence after critics constantly slammed the pop star for performing in a provocative manner while wearing raunchy outfits.
The country singer, who is the godmother of the 21 year-old, believes Cyrus is receiving an unfair amount of abuse for performing in racy outfits, reports contactmusic.com.
Parton can also relate to the former Disney Star, as she was also victimized for similar things in her younger days.
The 68-year-old explained how she was branded trashy, which is similar to how Cyrus is perceived by many.
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, she said.
