Singer Dolly Parton: I ain't got time to be old

Singer Dolly Parton: I ain't got time to be old”

While Dolly doesn't delve into the specifics of making that decision (though she was the oldest of 12 kids, so maybe she'd just had ENOUGH, ya know?), she does consider being biologically childless a kind of gift of its own.

Global icon and country music superstar Dolly Parton shares the spirit of the holidays in her new one-hour entertainment special A Holly Dolly Christmas, to be broadcast Sunday, December 6th from 8:30-9:30 pm ET and 8-9 pm PT on the CBS Television Network and available to stream live and on demand on CBS All Access.

Dolly Parton may age, but she'll never get old.

The performer also touched on what she assumes she'll look like 20-plus years from now.

Parton said she will be the best she can "at whatever age". "I'll have on the makeup". However, I believe more than anything else, it is about everything comes from within you. "Sometimes, that can make you feel young and make you seem young to other people". "I'll look as young as my plastic surgeons will allow me and [with] all the makeup and lighting and all that". She's got a new Christmas album out, a Christmas movie and is still making great art, giving kids books, and living her life. She spoke to Fox News about the project, which she said she started recording before the coronavirus pandemic surged around the globe.

And if her attitude doesn't hold up as easily, Parton knows her plastic surgeon is just one phone call away. "This year became the ideal time to spread some extra joy".

Titled A Holly Dolly Christmas, the jolly one-off special will see Dolly, 74, perform an intimate candle-lit set, singing both festive numbers, carols and religious hymns.

And honestly, it's so refreshing to hear someone like Dolly Freaking Parton acknowledge that women can not truly "have it all" without sacrificing themselves or their families or careers to an unhealthy degree.
