In an interview with Billboard, Dolly Parton has voiced her indisputable support for Black Lives Matter as well as the importance of changing with the times.

“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” the 74-year-old Parton said, referring to the latest wave of racial justice protests sweeping the world.

“And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”

The Queen of Country also explained her 2018 decision to rename the Dixie Stampede dinner attraction, a Southern-themed horse-riding and pyrotechnics show in Missouri and Tennessee, after it was called a “lily-white kitsch extravaganza that play-acts the Civil War but never once mentions slavery” in a 2017 Slate article.

“There’s such a thing as innocent ignorance, and so many of us are guilty of that,” Parton said. “When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I thought, ‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede.’ As soon as you realise that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumbass. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.” 

Parton dropped the word “Dixie,” often used to describe the American South during the time of slavery, about 2½ years before The Dixie Chicks followed suit in June, renaming themselves The Chicks

Other segments of the interview detail Parton’s role during the COVID-19 pandemic, including the singer’s donation of $1 million toward coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University Medical Centre and the release of her inspirational song When Life Is Good Again.

“As the Scripture says, ‘To whom much is given, much is required.’” Parton said. “So I look at my life with that every day and think that God expects it of me. ... If I can be an inspiration, then I want to be that. That makes me feel good.”

Parton, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, made her debut in 1967 with her album Hello, I’m Dolly. Since then, the artist, actor and businesswoman has won a stunning nine Grammy Awards and received 49 nominations.

Dolly Parton has requested that plans for a statue of her to be erected in her home state of Tennessee to be put on hold, due to “all that is going on in the world”.

In January 2021, Democrat Representative John Mark Windle introduced a bill calling for the country music legend to be honoured in the grounds of the Capitol in Tennessee.

However, Dolly has now issued a statement on Twitter, saying she doesn’t believe the time is right for her to be put “on a pedestal”.

“I want to thank the Tennessee legislature for their consideration of a bill to erect a statue of me on the Capitol grounds,” she wrote.

“I am honoured and humbled by their intention but I have asked the leaders of the state legislature to remove the bill from any and all consideration.”

Dolly continued: “Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time.

“I hope, though, that somewhere down the road several years from now, or perhaps after I’m gone if you still feel I deserve it, then I’m certain I will stand proud in our great State Capitol as a grateful Tennessean.”

She added: “In the meantime, I’ll continue to try to do good work to make this great state proud.”

It was revealed last year that Dolly had donated $1 million (£760,000) to coronavirus research, which had contributed massively to the development of the Moderna vaccine.

At the time, it was reported that Dolly had become friends with Vanderbilt University surgeon Naji Abumrad after she was involved in a car accident in 2013.

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the doctor showed the Grammy-winning musician the research the university was doing on antibodies to combat Covid-19, and she stumped up a cool million to the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center, which was involved in the Moderna vaccine trial.

Graham Norton has explained he’s stopped “roasting” celebrities because he doesn’t think viewers enjoy “that sort of comedy” anymore.

The chat show host explained his decision to stop poking fun at people in the limelight on Radio 4′s Home Stretch. 

He said: “It is that thing where you can do jokes about anyone until you meet them and then, they are quite nice, fun, or a nice person.

“And then you go back and the writers are going, ‘No, you met, now we cannot do jokes about them anymore’.”

Graham Norton is best known for hosting his BBC chat show

He continued: “And I think that sort of comedy at the moment is not popular. That idea of roast jokes.

“It is not now. And I don’t think an audience has an appetite for those
jokes anymore.”

Graham previously claimed that his own on-screen persona is a “turbo-charged” version of his real self, after taking some advice from Dolly Parton. 

He explained: “That’s an amped-up version of me, because I feel I ought to make an effort on telly. If I was like that all the time, it would be quite annoying.

“It’s very hard to sustain if it’s nothing like you. Years ago I remember Dolly Parton telling me that. She said, ‘Pick a persona that’s pretty close to you, otherwise life becomes difficult’. So mine is basically me, but turbo-charged.”

Graham Norton

The latest series of The Graham Norton Show saw guests return to appearing in the studio, albeit in socially-distanced individual armchairs, rather than the sofa set-up usually seen on the talk show.

Graham recently admitted he was less than convinced by the “terrible” version of the show he hosted from home during the height of the first national lockdown.
