We all know that Dolly Parton has quite a character and you can always count on her “out there” personality. She also carries that folksy country charm with her everywhere she goes. That’s what she exactly showed Jimmy Falon.[like_button]
For years, she always had her own fashion style in clothes and hair that makes her one-of-a-kind and well, Dolly. There are, however, noticeable changes on her clothing style when she started out her career in the 1960s as Country female pioneer.
When she visited Jimmy Fallon to promote her latest album on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon recently, they talked about Coat of Many Colors. It is the TV movie based on her childhood and how successful it was. She also shared that she will have a small role in the movie’s Christmas-themed sequel coming November (Christmas Coat of Many Colors). However, you will probably be surprised at the character she will be playing.
This is where she admits that she actually stole her look from “the town trollop,” which also happens to be the role she will be playing.
“When I was little, I patterned my look after the town trollop. In our town, I guess it’s what we call ‘em,” Dolly says.
Parton explained how growing up in Tennessee made her idolize the woman in tight clothing and bright makeup who walks the small-town streets. Unfortunately, she has never met her but she only has kind words to say about those fond memories.
“And I thought she was the most beautiful thing, she had all this makeup, hair and all the tight clothes and everything I wanted so it impressed me. So, I thought, why not play the painted lady? You know, that I patterned my look after. So, I did her in the movie.”
Unfortunately, she has never met her but she only has kind words to say about those fond memories.
Fallon, being the humorous guy he is, can’t keep a straight face with Dolly’s choice of words. Questlove, over on the drums, was just as shocked by her candor words when she said:
“I never got to know her, really, because I think her family probably didn’t know she was a hoe.”
Don’t miss out on Jimmy’s reaction and be sure to share this with your friends!
