Dolly Parton references Miley Cyrus while rapping on US TV show - watch

Parton tells her famous goddaughter: 'Hey Miley, I've got your wrecking balls right here!'

Dolly Parton will show off her unexpected rapping skills during an appearance on Queen Latifah's US TV show tomorrow (October 21). Watch a preview clip above.

Parton's rap includes a reference to the singer's famous goddaughter Miley Cyrus. "Hey Miley, I've got your wrecking balls right here!" Parton raps while gesturing towards her famously ample chest.

"Biggie Smalls" also gets a name-check during Parton's three-minute skit, and at one point she rhymes "I'm working!" with "I'm twerking!" though she does not attempt to perform the energetic dance move made famous by her goddaughter at the MTV VMAs in August.

Meanwhile, Parton has recently announced that she will be expanding her Dollywood theme park to the tune of $300 million (£190 million). New plans for the park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee – which opened 28 years ago – will include the DreamMore resort, a 300-room luxury hotel which will open in 2015. A new range of attractions, shows and rides will include the Fire Chaser Express, a roller coaster set to open next year.

Parton released her last studio album 'Better Day' – the 41st of her career – in 2011. She is estimated to have sold over 100 million records worldwide since she made her debut with the 1967 LP 'Hello, I'm Dolly'.
