Miley Cyrus says Pharrell Williams is the definitive ''entertainer'' of 2013.

The two musicians - who collaborated on her track '#Getitright' - were both named in Entertainment Weekly's 'Entertainers of the Year' and the 'Wrecking Ball' singer insisted the star producer deserves the plaudits.

She told the publication: ''I really think Pharrell [Williams] is the entertainer of the year.

''Not only for what he did on my record, but for what he did in the music industry in general with 'Blurred Lines' and Daft Punk.''

The 21-year-old singer described Pharrell as her ''brother'' and insisted their friendship goes further than just their professional collaborations.

She added: ''He and I were kind of on the same path, and I think that's why he and I connected. He really feels like a brother - it's more than just us working together.

''No-one had heard from me or him in a minute, and we were just kind of brewing up what we wanted to do next and what we wanted to drop on people.

''He and I were on kind of a journey together, and I couldn't be more happy for him and what he accomplished this year in everything - in fashion, in art, everything he does.''
