    Dolly has been around a long time, giving those who admire her alot of pleasure. WHO ON EARTH CARES ABOUT HER SEXUALITY?

  2. I really wish people would stop trying to out people. Peoples personal lives are supposed to be personal. If they choose to share cool, if not, they should be left alone.

    Vultures! That’s what people have become. A bunch of vultures.

    Also, for every person who decides to argue against this post. Think first, I might be describing you!

    Just because someone is a celebrity, that doesn’t mean they suddenly stop being people. Treat people with respect, and afford them the same consideration that you would want for yourselves.

  3. I love Dolly – she has a special place in my ipod!!

    I agree Jay – outing people as gay is a bad thing. But it is no worse than outing someone as straight. Therefore to discuss closetted gay celebrities private lives (Jodie Foster) is no worse than discussing closetted straight celebrities private lives (Beyonce – she never confirmed her relationship with Jay Z but the press discussed it anyway).

    I am entirely in favour of equal treatment for people regardless of sexual orientation. Therefore if it is acceptable to discuss Brad and Angie’s straight relationship before they have confirmed it then equally it is acceptable to discuss a gay celebrity’s relationship (whether they have confirmed it or not)

    Being gay is not a handicap or a secret or even particularly private. Stop treating it as such.

  5. More people who desperately need to get themselves a life and mind their own business! It’s nobody’s business but Ms Parton’s, her husband’s and Judy Ogle’s who does what with whom!!!

  6. hear, hear jay. But I also think dolly is entitled to her privacy if she practices what she preaches. As I have no time for people saying and then doing something else.

    If her sex life is anywhere near successful as her public achievements then she is on fire!

    First and foremost she is a superstar – as for everything else – I hope its idle gossip – which has done her in good stead. She provides an excellent response in support of homosexual life stlyes.

  8. great if she is; great if she isn’t because she’s so on side and a really nice person apart from a brilliant star of the Country Scene!

  9. Gay or not, who cares. Dolly is a national treasure. What is important to me is that gay performers of all kinds have been the most entertaining artists of all times, and artists, gay or not, can and do teach the world how to be tolerant, first and foremost.
