Miley Cyrus, who will co-star in a New Year’s Eve special with Dolly Parton, said this week the country legend was “tightening her pearls” when the “Party in the USA” singer suggested she might to dye one’s hair.
“I’ve never seen Dolly actually scared before,” Cyrus told Hoda Kotb in an interview clip from “A Toast to 2022!” released Thursday. “But I told her, you know, at the end of the year, that I really wanted to do something different. I think I’m going to dye my hair brunette. She acted like I told her the worst news you can imagine.”
Cyrus said the “Jolene” singer “tightened her beads, gasped, and came back, and she said, ‘You can’t do that! You are me! So I’m sort of an extension of Dolly Parton where she sounded like she told him the worst news you’ve ever heard.”
Cyrus has confirmed that she and her famous godmother will both be blondes for their co-host concert on Saturday night.

Cyrus, who turned 30 in November, also reflected on his wild 20s.
The former Disney child star went through an infamous rebellious period, which included her “Wrecking Ball” nude video, twerking with Robin Thicke at the 2013 VMAs and her past drug use.

“In some ways I’m completely different, and then in some ways I’m exactly the same,” Cyrus said. “Now in my 30s – I mean my 20s were so much fun. If you don’t believe me, I think you can google it…”
