I think it’s fun! You know, we usually have boys all dressed like me, and so when I do “Jolene” and I see a bunch of drag queens out there, I start singing [to the tune of the “Jolene” chorus] ‘Drag queen, drag queen, drag queen! Please don’t take my man!’ [Laughing] I have a huge gay following, and I’m proud of them. Sometimes some of them look more like me than I do.””– Dolly Parton
