Dolly Parton accused of lip syncing, hits new RIAA milestone
Critics are accusing Dolly Parton of lip syncing in her performance at the Glastonbury Festival in England.
Parton’s performance garnered the biggest crowd of the festival with 100,000 people at the Pyramid Stage on Sunday. Fans loved the show – many even dressed up like her – but some TV viewers were disappointed to find that Parton appeared to be lip syncing.
Both Parton and her spokesman strongly condemned the reports.
“My boobs are fake, my hair’s fake but what is real is my voice and my heart,” said Parton in her typical style.
“It’s ridiculous to suggest Dolly was miming,” said Parton’s spokesman. “She’s been performing for more than 60 years – she doesn’t need to [mime].”
Despite the controversy, the performance was a great time for both the fans and Parton herself. Before the show, Parton was presented with a plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of 100 million albums worldwide.
Parton said she had been so busy that she didn’t even realize how many records she had sold. She was honored to have the support of so many fans all these years.
