"That's the kind of person I want to be the guide and the spiritual protector of my child."

When times are tough, Miley Cyrus can count on her country-legend godmother to have her back. "I've loved her through the years and watched her grow up, and I've seen how smart she is and how talented she is," Parton told the London Evening Standard. Alluding to the young "Wrecking Ball" star's controversial career moves of late, Parton explained, "If she needs my opinion on something I will surely give it [but] I would never dream of calling her and saying, 'Well why are you doing this?' or, 'You shouldn't do this or that…' She's just trying to find her own place and wings and learn to fly."

It may seem like an unorthodox choice, but Elton John had a solid reason for choosing Lady Gaga as godmother for his two sons with David Furnish, Zachary, 3, and Elijah, 8 months. "She's a great role model," John told Extra. "She's been a great godmother to Zachary. She came to bathe him in Las Vegas. She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn… and she fed him… We're all bonkers in this business, but we're human beings at the same time."
