Dolly Parton once entered a “Dolly Parton lookalike contest”, but lost to a drag queen.


“Lots of drag queens dress up on Halloween like Dolly, and that was back when everybody was dressing like Cher or like me. So I thought how fun would this be?” Dolly is quoted as saying.

“I just kind of over-exaggerated everything I am—bigger hair, bigger beauty mark, bigger boobs, if you can imagine.””Here all these big drag queens are at least 6 feet tall with their high heels,”

“I was kind of lost in the shuffle. They didn’t take me serious at all.”
