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!

When was the first time you tried sushi? Or the first time you had curry? Have you even been able to try escargot? The world is full of so many fascinating foods, and some of those foods are American--especially to non-Americans.

The rule of thumb when eating fast food is very simple: put on the blinders, enjoy the meal, and try not to do it too often.

But what if you work in the kitchen?

In that case, there's simply no escaping a complete understanding of the several horrors that each assembled burger or french fry encounters on its way to that front counter.
