Dolly Parton Says She Has ‘To Be Ambulance-Ready at All Times’

Dolly Parton is an iconic figure known for her glamorous appearance and unique sense of style. In a recent interview with RuPaul, they discussed the effort they both put into maintaining their carefully crafted looks. While Parton always dazzles in glittering outfits, complete with high heels and a wig, RuPaul is fashion-forward both in and out of drag.

Despite their similarities, RuPaul pointed out that he gets to take off all the glam at the end of the day, while Parton is always dressed to the nines. In a conversation with Parton for Marie Claire, RuPaul playfully asked if she wears high heels even while making breakfast. Parton’s response shed light on why she always stays glammed up.

Dolly! The shade! Of course, she likely meant zero shade with the comment. The Grammy winner is too sweet and loving for that. But she did further explain why she’s always dressed to the nines.

“I have to be ambulance-ready at all times, if I get sick or something,” she said.

Parton revealed that she believes in being “street ready” at all times. She explained that she doesn’t want to be caught off guard, particularly during emergencies like earthquakes. While RuPaul takes off his drag persona, Parton maintains her makeup and hair, always ensuring that she looks her best.

“But I actually do wear high heels most of the time,” Parton added. “Not as high as the ones I wear for show, but I’m little and have to wear heels to reach my cabinets. I also feel more like myself when I’m all dolled up. But don’t get me wrong, I can still be down-to-earth and comfortable in my own skin. I dress up for myself more than anyone else.”

Parton’s commitment to looking good at all times stems from her desire to present herself in the best possible light. She appreciates her fans and wants to maintain her carefully crafted image, even in times of unexpected situations. It’s not just about vanity; it’s about feeling comfortable and true to herself.

So, let’s applaud Dolly Parton for always being glamorous and always being ready, no matter what life throws her way.
