Dolly Parton on LGBT Fans: "What a boring ass world it'd be if we were all alike"
Superstar Dolly Parton has revealed that she firmly believes "everybody should be loved and accepted for exactly who and what they are".
Chatting to Noisey, the country legend admitted that she loves her gay following and wishes the world would be more accepting because, as humans, we are all so wildly different and that should be celebrated:
"Oh, I enjoy all that, I have a lot of gay fans. I just think everybody should be loved and accepted for exactly who and what they are, and we should love ourselves exactly for who and how we are. Variety is the spice of life, and it's wonderful that we're all different. What a boring ass world it'd be if we were all alike, and what would we be like, anyway?"
Parton refrained from making any direct comments on America's current political battle, but added: "It's crazy out there. I always address that, I make it light and fun onstage. I talk about all the craziness and make a few little jokes, but I'm there to lift people's' spirits. I'm here to say that we are great, we are wonderful, and we need to love. If we had as much love as we have at my concerts all around the world, we'd be in good shape!"
