It’s Dolly Parton’s birthday, y’all!
The musician, actress and all around fabulous country diva is turning 71 years old today. We absolutely love Dolly and think she is the best icon our community has. Want proof? Here are 12 reasons to back this rather intense claim up.
12. Like a true diva, she always looks fabulous and never wears the same outfit twice.
11. Her character in Steel Magnolias is everything we want to be in life.
10. Straight Talk and Rhinestone are our favorite guilty pleasures.
9. But we can all agree that 9 to 5 really is the best film ever, right?
8. She is the godmother to Miley Cyrus, a baby gay icon.
7. Her Twitter gives us all the inspirational feels.
When I’m feeling a little low, I put on my favorite high heels to stand a little taller. #dollyism
