Miley Cyrus‘ time is now!

TIME recently gave Mileybird a spot on their coveted list of most influential people, and we can imagine she’s twerking for joy over it!

She may not be number one (like her infamous foam finger might suggest) on the list like Beyoncé, but to be on this list is a huge honor for anyone!

Meanwhile, her godmother Dolly Parton offered an astute observation as to why Miley is so deserving to receive such an accolade:

“If I didn’t know how smart and talented Miley is, I might worry about her. But I’ve watched her grow up. So I don’t. She knows what she’s doing. She was very proud of the work she did as Hannah Montana, but people were gonna leave her there forever. And she was just smotherin’ and chokin’ in it. So she felt she had to do something completely drastic. And she did. She made her point, she made her mark, and more power to her…Wrecking Ball’ is a great song. The whole album is great. So I’m hoping that now she can relax and show people how talented she really is. ‘Cause the girl can write. The girl can sing. The girl is smart. And she doesn’t have to be so drastic. But I will respect her choices. I did it my way, so why can’t she do it her way?”

We’ll be interested to see how Miley’s image and persona shift over the following years!

But for right now, congrats Miley! We can’t stop, nay, we won’t stop singing your praises!
