Dolly Parton On Happiness, Plastic Surgery, & Being Called White Trash

“People always say ‘You seem to always be so happy.’ But I’m not always happy. Nobody is happy all the time. I’m a very sensitive person. I’m a songwriter, so I have to live with my feelings on my sleeve. I have to not harden my heart, because I want to stay open to feel things. So when I hurt, I hurt all over. And when I cry, I cry real hard. And when I’m mad, I’m mad all over. I’m just a person; I like to experience whatever the feeling is and whatever I’m going through. But I have a good attitude. And I was born with a happy heart. I’m always looking for things to be better.”

In an interview with Southern LivingDolly Parton got real about the feelings behind that lipstick-caked smile of hers. I’d have been surprised if she said anything different. Fake as her boobs may be, her character is as real as it gets, and her honesty about that is one more excuse to be obsessed with her. She also talked about the plastic surgery habit that got her those boobs in the first place:

“Well, I never would have said I did it if I hadn’t got caught at it. But I wasn’t gonna lie about it! So then after I got caught and I didn’t lie about it, people started asking me [more often]. And I thought, ‘Well, you know, what the hell?’ After so much time, after you get older, it can help people. I’m not being the poster child for any of that, but people know you do it. If they ask me, I just say ‘Yeah, whatever. And I ain’t done yet!’”

Hey, like she said, facelifts can help people! Ain’t no shame in the boob job game if that’s what makes you happy.

Stevie Nicks Intends To Go Undercover At “Night Of 1,000 Stevies”

“I read about ["Night Of 1,000 Stevies," an annual event where fans dress up as Stevie Nicks] and told my dad, ‘It’s a huge party thrown by fabulous gay men and women. They love my clothes and my fashion and my songs, and they all go to it and play my music and lip synch!’ And my dad was very conservative, but he said, ‘That is really great, honey!’ One day I’m going to show up, and they are not going to know it, because I’m going to be dressed as the best Stevie ever. I will be unrecognizably fantastic until I go up on stage and take the mic and burst into ‘Edge of Seventeen’ and blow everyone away.”

Stevie Nicks told OUT magazine on how she plans to sneak into “Night Of 1,000 Stevies,” a 24-year-old fan event where everyone dresses like Stevie and performs her songs, and blow some minds. The best Stevie ever indeed! It kinda sounds  like that episode of “Will & Grace” when Jack mistakes the actual Cher for a low-rent Cher impersonator. [OUT] [Images via Getty and OUT magazine]

Miley Cyrus: “If You Drink A Lot Of Pineapple Juice You’re Going To Have Yummy Cum”

“This one’s a vibrator, which I got from a fan. They threw it on stage. And that’s a joint [attached to it], so that’s the vibe. I’ve gotten more and more about piling things on, but I try to put thought into everything. Even though it’s so stupid, I did the pineapple because you know what they say about pineapple, right? Yummy cum? If you drink a lot of pineapple juice you’re going to have yummy cum. So that’s why I put it on the dick with a bunch of babies, and it says, ‘Fuck.’ I try to think about everything so it has a story to me.”

Miley Cyrus has a glue gun and she knows how to use it. Her artwork is appearing in Jeremy Scott’s New York Fashion Week show today and will be displayed at the V magazine office’s gallery from tomorrow onward. (Perhaps this also explains why Miley decked out her five-foot bong with fake flowers, beads and a plastic dinosaur? It was art.) Somehow, pineapples figure strongly in her artistic vision, so she attached one to a dick with a bunch of babies and wrote the word “fuck.” Thanks for the semen tip, Miley!

Bill Cunningham Thinks The Fashion World Is Out Of Touch

“I think the fashion world needs to come to grips with reality. The reality is you have the whole country electronically connected. They’re educating the insides of their heads, as they should, and not [dressing] the outside with a fancy hat or a dress. Simple clothes, that’s key, and I think that’s what the fashion world should really think about…Look at the lines waiting to get into that Apple store on 5th Avenue! Do you see a line waiting to get into Bergdorfs or Saks? The future belongs to this generation and the high-tech world is it!”

Bill Cunningham, the legendary fashion photographer for the New York Times, teared up Wednesday night at New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis’ “Fashion Icons” series. He sat down with Mallis at New York’s 92Y to talk all things style, and the normally very private Cunningham kept his heart on his sleeve the whole night. After describing in emotional detail the Battle of Versailles in 1973, which he considers the best fashion show he’s ever seen, he added:

“That’s what American fashion does best! Not imitate, but the simplicity, the honesty of clothes — that’s what we’ve got to get back! That’s what made America great, and what made the fashion world great.”

Jennifer Aniston Refuses To See Motherhood As A Measure Of Her Worth

“I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and … if they’re not checked, then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven’t birthed a child … I’ve birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I’ve mothered many things and I don’t think it’s fair to put that pressure on people.”

Jennifer Aniston gets a pretty raw deal when it comes to the press. Tabloids have spent the past decade or so trying to corner her into a “desperate for a baby” role, which couldn’t be further from her reality. In a funny and down-to-earth interview with Carson Daly on”The Today Show,” Aniston said that she still doesn’t know why complete strangers are so fascinated with her childfree status. She’s perfectly happy with where her life is and feels no need to justify her womanhood to anyone else. [Huffington Post] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Taylor Swift Just Realized She’s Totally A Feminist

“As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And, now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. … Becoming friends with Lena — without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for — has made me realize that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so.”

Hell yeah, Taylor Swift! It’s so lovely to see a young, female celeb, initially confused about what it means to be a feminist thanks to bullshit stereotypes, realize she’s been one all along. We always knew it, but we’re glad to see Taylor finally embrace the label. Welcome to the club, Tay! [The Guardian]
