Dolly Apologizes to Lesbian Couple and Does some damage control for Dollywood

by Accidental Bear

I can just hear her squeaky, wonderful voice bouncing off her delicious breast, “Golly Gosh darn, really? I’m sorry.” Dolly does some damage control. AB

Dolly Parton has issued an apology to the lesbian couple who felt discriminated against at Dollywood last month, saying she’s sorry for “the hurt or embarrassment,” reports ABC News.

As The Advocate reported July 20, Olivier Odom and Jennifer Tipton and the children of a friend were stopped at the entrance to Parton’s popular Tennessee theme park when a gatekeeper noticed Odom wearing a T-shirt that read “Marriage Is So Gay.” Odom was instructed her to turn the shirt inside out before her party could enter Dollywood. Parton’s statement reads: “I am truly sorry for the hurt or embarrassment regarding the gay and lesbian t-shirt incident at Dollywood’s Splash Country recently. Everyone knows of my personal support of the gay and lesbian community. Dollywood is a family park and all families are welcome.”

I have a Sweet Tooth for Dolly Parton; NEW SONG ‘Together You and I’

by Accidental Bear

via tasteofcountry.com

A Dolly Parton love song is like a Sunday morning stroll through the forest: quietly beautiful, instantly familiar and simply satisfying. The country legend isn’t painting a picture that hasn’t been painted a thousand times before on her new single ‘Together You and I,’ but there still isn’t anyone who works a brush quite like Parton.

The opening verse of this uptempo track could be labeled as trite, but that would be premature. “My love for you is deeper than the depths of any ocean / And as faithful as the stars that grace the night,” Parton sings with a voice that is still impossibly flawless. Her commitment to the metaphor is what makes the song a keeper: “As constant as the sun making it’s journey through the heavens / And we’ll always be together you and I.”

The chorus isn’t a departure from the tone she sets: “Together you and I can stop the rain and make the sunshine / Paint a pretty rainbow brushed with love across the sky / Together you and I belong / Like a songbird and a song / And we’ll always be together you and I.”

GLAAD Awards; Dolly Remains, Publicly, Heterosexual

by Accidental Bear

No last name needed, Dolly steals the show. Big hair, enormous ta-tas and even big gay fan base. Does anyone really care about her lesbian rumors? Not me, her music make me cry, gives me goose bumps and makes me soar with joy (self-confessional).

Dolly Parton‘s Pseudo Coming Out At The GLAAD Awards

At last night’s GLAAD Awards in Los Angeles, the second of three award-y fundraisers the organization hosts each year, you had both Modern Family and Glee winning for Best Comedy, because homosexuals cannot make up their minds about which type of homosexual humor they like more. (Though I can’t remember any of the gay storylines on Glee ever being really … funny.) But the best part of the program was when surprise guest Dolly Parton came to the podium to give NBC Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt, who came over from Showtime, a trophy. “I guess you could say that I’m coming out tonight!,” Dolly screamed at the audience. Which was cute, but not true: Dolly remains, publicly, heterosexual. – Queerty

by Accidental Bear

When it comes to music I have a lesbian living inside of me. It’s 2011 and I still by the rules of a Riot Girl. What would I be if I was born biological male with a lesbian on the inside but attracted to men and loves for-yo ?
