Until Death Do Us Parton! Comments (0)

It does a body good to see Miss Dolly Parton sandwiched between Mr. Joshua Sasse and his hot-piece GF, Miss Kylie Minogue.

His shirt refers to the campaign for marriage equality in Australia.

Dolly Parton's Gay Circle: WE EMBRACE IT Comments (0)

Dolly Parton is talking to Pride Source about her LGBT bona fides, including the first time she ever heard about gay people: Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 4.39.37 PM

As I started to be a teenager there were a couple of guys downtown that everybody was sayin' were queer, ya know? I know they often said that about anybody who was odd or different - "they're just queer, just strange and odd" - but the way they would talk about these two guys they would say, "Well, they're sissies, they're girls." I was a teenager then. But in my early days we did not know (what gay was). It didn't take me long to know that people were different and that was always fine with me 'cause I was different too, and I embraced and accepted them and I knew them. I knew them well. But no, in my early days I did not know. But I know a lot of them now! I have a huge gay and lesbian following and I'm proud of 'em, I love 'em and I think everybody should be themselves and be allowed to be themselves whoever they are, whatever they are. 

She told writer Chris Azzopardi that her gay circle these days is wide:

You know what, I have so many (gay) people in my companies. And later on, I did find out I have many gays and lesbians in my own family. We accept them, we embrace them. Oh, there are some in the mountains who still don't know quite what to make of it or how they should feel about it, but they're ours and they're who they are and we know they're wonderful and they're like us. We love the fact that they are who they are and we nurture that. We don't try to make them feel separate or different. We embrace it.

Dolly is currently on her Pure & Simple Tour.

Nice Pair: Katy Perry & Dolly Parton Duet Way Better Than You Thought Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 2.01.09 AM(Video still via CBS)

I was really charmed by the Katy Perry/Dolly Parton duet at the Academy of Country Music Awards, which found Katy dolled up like a country sweetheart and Dolly doing Dolly.

The ladies sang three classic Dolly tunes—“Coat of Many Colors,” “Jolene” and “Nine to Five.”

First, check out Ravens kicker Justin Tucker, who wails “Ave Maria” with surprising strength. It's almost like he has more to offer than his bulge. Regardless, he's no castrato.

Next, after the jump, it's time for Cyndi Lauper to cover Dolly Parton's “Hard Candy Christmas” ...

Dolly Parton is piping up to The Hollywood Reporter on “God, Botox and her gay fans” (if that's a list of her favorite things, I hope it's in no particular order).

Of her gay fans, she says:

“They know that I completely love and accept them, as I do all people. I’ve struggled enough in my life to be appreciated and understood. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are and to love who they love. I don’t think we should be judgmental. Lord, I’ve got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else.”

Dolly Parton On Glassie, Lip-Synching, The Town Tramp & A Future Song That May Be Just A Wee Bit Gay Comments (0)

Tumblr_mmyr3y4gBT1qgbszdo1_500Parton said she would be open to doing more movies and/or TV movies of the week, but is waiting for good scripts.

On a group phone call with media today as she winds down her world tour, Dolly Parton answered several burning questions, such as the fate of that dog left behind after her Glastonbury gig. Turns out, its owners have been found:

“Yes! Yes. As a matter of fact, in the last five minutes just before we went on, we got a call from the main people with the government and they told us that the true owners did come forward—they had reported the dog missing, it was a language barrier, I think they were from another country—and they got the dog back, everybody feels good about it. I do not get to take her home; I was looking forward to it, I was gonna name her Glassie 'cuz of Glastonbury, I was gonna say, 'Glassie comes home!'—but they want her and they feel good about that...”

Doll-parton-blue_smoke-510Musically speaking, she blew off the lip-synching rumors that swirled around Glastonbury, saying:

“Every time I go on tour, I hear that. I like people to just come, watch, see what I do and then you tell me what you think. But they say that about every artist and I'm not gettin' into that. I'm right there, I'm Dolly and I'm singin'.”

She also retold that familiar story of how she developed her style from the town tramp, saying she loves bold “flair and the gaud” (sic), but added a twist when asked about the tramp's identity:
