[ # ] Dolly Parton says she is a ‘living drag queen’

Marie Claire

RuPaul got to sit down with Dolly Parton for Marie Claire, and he had a lot of questions for the legend. She had just had as many answers for him—some more surprising than others.

He wanted to know if she ever wore the same thing twice because we always see her in something different. “It’s not true that I don’t wear a lot of my clothes twice. If I love something, I wear it.” Parton told him. “If I’m on tour, I have stage outfits that I wear. But if it’s for a real special occasion, then I will put that in my museum, or I will allow other people to put certain costumes in their museums, or we auction off pieces for charity. So nothing ever goes to waste.”

While that is what she wears below her neck, what about what she wears over her forehead. She has some old wigs, and those, like her dresses, are in her museum Chasing Rainbows at Dollywood. “I don’t think I have any that I wear that are that old now, but I know what you mean,” she said. “See, you’re a drag queen. Those are like costumes to you. This is my living self. I am a living drag queen. You dress up just now and then, but for me, though, I like the wigs and I wear them almost every day. So, people ask me how many wigs I have, I say, ‘Well, I must have at least 365,’ because I wear one almost every day. But I actually keep my own hair the same color and I just kind of pull it up in little scrunchies around the house. But I still like to put on makeup and have my hair fluffed.”

Now, we know why so many drag queens dress up like her. They want to feel what it is like to walk even a block in her high heels since she is the epitome of what they strive to be.
