Dolly Parton wants Adele duet

Dolly Parton wants to work with Adele.

The legendary country singer is a huge fan of the 'Hello' hitmaker and would love to either write a track or record a duet with her.

She gushed: "I love her, love her, love her! Did you notice I used her name in one of the songs on the album? On [the track] 'Head Over High Heels', when I say I put on my tight dress, hair piled on my head, painting my lips red and my eyes like Adele! I love her!

"I would love to do something with her. I just love her. I love how she looks, I love how she sings, I love how she is. I would love to do something with her.

"Maybe write a song? Maybe do a duet. So pass that word along!"

And Dolly, 70, is also keen to work with Justin Bieber or Justin Timberlake - but only if they approach her so it doesn't seem as if she's taking advantage of their popularity.

Asked if she'd duet with Justin Bieber, she told Digital Spy: "Well I would love to do songs with those people. They would have to come to me because I would feel like I'm getting on them just to ride on their success.

"There are many people I would love to sing with.

"Certainly I would be agreeable if some of those calibre of people came to me and say would you do a duet.

"I would like to do something with Justin Timberlake. We are both Tennessee people. I love his work. Who knows, some day I might get a chance to do some of those things."

The '9 to 5' hitmaker is also keen to work with her "gifted and smart" goddaughter Miley Cyrus.

She said: "I like to think I have a future with Miley. I have known her since she was a baby.

"I know her little heart, I know her mind and I know how gifted and smart she is.

"She's a great actor, she's a great comedienne. Her timing is great. She writes great, she plays guitar.

"I think her voice is as great if not greater than most of the girls in the business."
