Dolly Honored To Be Honored

Dolly Parton took center stage at last night’s Academy of Country Music special awards ceremony, at which she received the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award. Accepting the award from former singing partner, Porter Wagoner, Parton said:

I’ve seen a lot of wonderful things happen in this business, all sorts of styles, but it’s always remained country music. I like feeling like I’m one of the old-timers in the business, but I’m out there every day. I may be a pioneer, but I’m blazing new trails all the time, so don’t give up on me.

Girl, we’d never give up on you. We have, however, given up hopes of you ever resembling a human again. Seriously, Parton, did you go to Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, because you look like a straight-up Muppet.

In other Dolly-related news, the country crooner invited Amy Winehouse and new hubby Blake Fielder-Civil to Dollywood for a little honeymoon. And, of course, a little sing along and a whole lotta booze…

      Would you have Dolly looking any other way? She wouldnt be quite as iconic if she looked schleppy.

      There are few in the business or who know Parton outside show business who aren’t aware that she is a lesbian. Dolly was and is a great singer and songwriter and, before she started tampering with her face and body, a great beauty. But she is financially in a position to come out, and also so many people love this icon that the idea of people turning against her is ludicrous. I am aware Parton is very “gay friendly” but logically, can Bullwinkle be moose-friendly? Can one be “friendly” towards one’s own group?
