Dolly Parton, the iconic country music star and philanthropist, is using her voice to speak out about the role of politics in society. In a recent interview, she expressed her concern that lawmakers frequently put political party and partisanship over the well-being of the people they represent. Parton believes that politicians should prioritize serving the interests of their constituents rather than advancing their own agendas.
While Parton is known for her glamorous image, she revealed that her look came from a very serious place. In discussing her famous image, she opened up about the challenges she faced, including instances of sexual harassment. Parton emphasized the importance of staying true to oneself and not letting others define who you are. She believes that one's appearance should not overshadow their talents or their ability to make a positive impact on society.
As Parton prepares to release her new book, titled "Behind The Seams," she shared why she rarely delves into political discussions. Despite her immense success and influence, she chooses to focus on her music and philanthropy rather than engaging directly in politics. However, Parton's first-ever rock 'n' roll album, "Rockstar," addresses global issues. While she didn't initially consider it political, the album's themes and lyrics shed light on important social and political matters.
