Miley Cyrus won't be ditching her blonde hair any time soon.

In a new clip from an appearance on NBC's upcoming "A Toast to 2022!" New Year's Eve special, the 30-year-old singer shared how Dolly Parton, 76, reacted after she suggested changing her own appearance.

"I've never seen Dolly actually scared before," Cyrus told "Today" host Hoda Kotb, 58. "But I told her, 'At the end of the year, I just really want 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. She clutched her pearls, gasped and went back, and she goes, 'You can't do that. You are me.'"

"I am somehow some extension of Dolly Parton where she looked like I had just given her the worst news you've ever heard. So, I will be blonde. We will be either complementing each other, matching or being completely the opposite, because me and Dolly, she says, 'You be you, I be me and together, we've got the perfect show.'"

During the interview, Cyrus also opened up about her 20s and her New Year's resolution for 2023.

"I guess my resolution would really be — my instinct is very loud, but I'm not a great listener sometimes," Cyrus explained. "Dolly was telling me, her husband (Carl Thomas Dean) says, 'You're not hard of hearing. You're hard of listening.' And I guess that would kind of be my resolution, to not just listen to myself, but listen to others."

The "Hannah Montana" alum then shared how she feels now that she's entered her 30s.

"I always say that my truth, and the opposite of what that is, is also true. Somehow I'm completely different, and then somehow I'm exactly the same," Cyrus added. "Now, in my 30s — I mean, my 20s were so much fun. If you don't believe me, I think you can Google it."
