America's national treasure, Dolly Parton, has just offered the most Dolly Parton response to Black Lives Matter - and people are loving it.
In recent weeks, Black Lives Matter has dominated the news cycle.And with very good reason.
Institutional change needs to happen.And it's way overdue.
Many celebrities have offered their support for the movement.Which is an undeniably good thing.
But there's one celebrity who has absolutely nailed it with her response.Dolly Parton had an extremely Dolly Parton response.
And the internet is absolutely loving it.Just when you thought you couldn't love her any more!
Dolly Parton is a national treasure and everyone knows it.Born in Locust Ridge, she was the fourth child of a whopping twelve.
The country singer made a career from her "rags-to-rhinestones" story.She has credited a lot of her family members for helping mold her musicality, but particularly Uncle Bill Owens for getting her foot in the door of the industry.
Her talent didn't go unnoticed.After landing a coveted spot on The Porter Wagoner Show, she saw her name in lights very quickly.
And with songs like "Jolene" and "Love Is Like A Butterfly," she became an icon in the world of country singers.In 1975 and '76, the Country Music Association awarded her with Female Country Singer of the Year and during this time, she was also working on moving into the pop market in order to further her career.
And the song “Here You Come Again" really helped her do that.It won a Grammy Award and in the following years, she tucked a couple more of the prestigious accolades under her belt.
Probably one of her most famous songs, "9 to 5" catapulted her to global stardom.Her iconic country glam style was recognized all over the world and her distinct million-dollar smile granted her with millions of fans.
As well as being a musician, she also dabbled in the world of film.In the '80s, Dolly made appearances in films such as Nine to Five, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Steel Magnolias.
It's safe to say that Dolly Parton is a living legend.And she's proven her status yet again with her latest interview ...
She was asked about her stance on BLM.And Dolly told Billboard, "I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen. And of course Black lives matter."
"Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter?""No! Everybody matters."
