Dolly Parton Raps, Twerks for Queen Latifah

Legendary Performer Is Still in It for Fun

It’s no secret Dolly Parton is a multi-talented legend with projects in many facets of entertainment from country music to acting and even composing for Broadway musicals.

But recently, the singer revealed her newest skill on daytime TV. During an appearance on fellow crossover entertainer Queen Latifah’s talk show, Parton showed off her hilarious hip-hop flair.

“I don’t hip/And I don’t hop/I’d black both eyes/With this big top,” Parton raps.

She then went on to take a few more playful jabs at her talk show host and her own famous figure. But perhaps most unexpectedly, she joined the masses of Miley Cyrus “twerking” gags with a lighthearted line just for her goddaughter.

“I’m workin/I’m twerkin,” Parton says on the show. “Hey, Miley/I got your wrecking balls right here!”

All joking aside, her recent sentimental collaboration with longtime friend Kenny Rogers, “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” has been garnering rave reviews since the single’s release.

Parton sustained minor injuries in a Monday morning (Oct. 21) traffic accident in Nashville, but there’s no slowing down in sight for the songstress, who just announced her Blue Smoke world tour to launch in early 2014. Parton will visit six Australian cities on the tour, starting Feb. 11 in Melbourne and ending Feb. 27 in Perth.

She has also announced a European tour that begins June 8 in Liverpool, England, and ends July 9 in Oslo, Norway. Most of the tour dates will be in the U.K., although she’ll also be performing in Germany and Denmark.

The tour will support her upcoming album, Blue Smoke.
