Miley Cyrus pretty much owned 2013, landing the year's two most-watched music videos, dominating the pop cultural conversation for months and inspiring countless thinkpieces and open letters. Oh, and she was the most googled person in 2013 and "what is twerking?" was the most googled question.

But while the Grammys decided to snub the pop star, her celebrity colleagues have been considerably more supportive.

Sara Quin of Canadian indie-pop duo Tegan and Sara, recently paid the "Wrecking Ball" singer the highest compliment we could imagine. "The controversy around her shouldn't distract from her being a quintessential pop star," Quin told the NME. "She's this generation's Madonna -- a hugely talented pop star with agency over her body and sexuality, which terrifies people. And she's constantly switching up between sounds. 'Bangerz' is part electro, part country, part rap, all incredible."

And Quin is not alone. There may have been much virtual (and actual) ink spilled bashing Cyrus' antics in 2013, but here are a host of singers, musicians and producers -- ranging from Kanye, Jay Z and 50 Cent to Courtney Love, Katy Perry and Britney Spears to Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks and Elton John -- who can't stop saying how much they support Miley.
