When you're Dolly Parton, you can say pretty much anything you want, whether it's commenting on her husband's desire for a threesome with Jennifer Anniston, or saying that, if born male, she would have totally been a drag queen.


During an ABC News interview, Dolly was asked:

"Is it true that you once said that it's a good thing you were born a girl, otherwise you would have been a drag queen?"

To which Parton responded:

"Yes, it is true. Because I'm so over-exaggerated and I have so many fans in the gay community, and the drag queens."

In an interview with Jennifer Aniston, star of the upcoming Netflix movie Dumplin', feauring Parton's music, Dolly also said:

"I've always had these drag queens dress like me. And I even lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest."

Dolly actually told the story of losing the Dolly Parton lookalike contest to ABC in 2012:

"They had a bunch of Chers and Dollys that year, so I just over-exaggerated—made my beauty mark bigger, the eyes bigger, the hair bigger, everything. All these beautiful drag queens had worked for weeks and months getting their clothes. So I just got in the line and I just walked across, and they just thought I was some little short gay guy… but I got the least applause."




Dumplin' also stars "bisexual actress Cameron Dove and non-binary star Bex Taylor-Klaus," and is now available on the streaming service.

Parton has long been an advocate for LGBTQ rights, commenting in 2016:

"I think everybody should be treated with respect. I don't judge people and I try not to get too caught up in the controversy of things. I hope that everybody gets a chance to be who and what they are."




Ahead of Australia's vote to legalize gay marriage, Parton also spoke out in favor of LGBTQ equality:

"love is love and we have no control over that… I think people should be allowed to [marry]."


If you're a Dolly Parton fan (and we know you are), be sure to catch Dumplin' on Netflix, for which her song "Girl in the Movies" has already been nominated for a Best Original Song Golden Globe!

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
