NEW YORK, April 20 (UPI) -- Country singer Dolly Parton said her goddaughter, Miley Cyrus, told her she needed "to murder Hannah Montana" to be taken seriously.

Parton expressed concern with the drastic change in behavior she's seen in the younger singer.

“I hoping that she holds it in the road and doesn’t do so many things that are that bizarre,” Parton said.

Cyrus has done a near-complete 180 from the sweet, innocent character she played on the Disney Channel.

She's made headlines for admitted drug use, lip-smacking with the ladies, licking hammers and generally not wearing a whole heck of a lot of clothes in recent months.

“I don’t think the crowd would be so forgiving again if she did anything else that was really offensive,” Parton said. “I don’t want it to overshadow her talent."

“One day, she’d had enough and told me: ‘I need to murder Hannah Montana in order for people to accept who I really am,” she added. “I think she felt she had to make that severe a change. And she obviously did. I was very worried. I was holding my breath, hoping that people didn’t totally crucify her.”
