Um, Dolly Parton? We love you, but please, for the love of all that is holy: Don’t give up your day job quite yet.
The Nashville legend is putting in an appearance on Queen Latifah’s new talk show, The Queen Latifah Show, as we speak (literally—it’s airing on CBS RIGHT NOW)—and today, she’s trying a new hat on for size: Rapper. Complete with a wig edging dangerously close to ‘fro territory, Dolly attempts to bust out some rhymes… with varying degrees of success. Now, Dolly is Dolly, and Dolly can do pretty much whatever the heck she wants to; but I don’t know, Bettys. It’s sort of uncomfortable to watch in the same way that humiliation comedy is. But bless her little heart, she just rolls with it, so, y’know… respect for that, I guess?
Watch it here:
At least she managed to work in a good old-fashioned boob joke—and avoided twerking, despite rhymes to the contrary.
Tell us: Dolly as a rapper: Yea or nay?
