Dolly Parton loves Adele so much that she’s written a song about her

Joe Williams August 12, 2016

The LGBT icon also says she never plans to retire.

Country music legend Dolly Parton has expressed her love for fellow songbird Adele in the sweetest way – by writing a song about the Hello singer.

“I love her, love her, love her!” said Dolly. “Did you notice I used her name in one of the songs on the album?” she told Digital Spy.

“On ‘Head Over High Heels’, when I say ‘I put on my tight dress, hair piled on my head, painting my lips red and my eyes like Adele!'”

And the Jolene – who recently endorsed herself to become US President – singer says she doesn’t plan to stop there – she’d also love to duet with her fellow global superstar.

“I love her! I would love to do something with her. I just love her. I love how she looks, I love how she sings, I love how she is,” she revealed.

“I would love to do something with her. Maybe write a song? Maybe do a duet. So pass that word along!”

In good news for Parton fans, the legendary star says she has no plans to retire, as she releases her 43rd album this month.

“Why would I ever do that?! That word doesn’t register with me. I cannot possibly imagine retiring,” she said.

“What would I retire to? For me not to think that I would have something to do, that I would miss out on all the excitement and all the fans.

“All these dreams and creative ideas that I have. There is no way that I would ever retire.”

The singer earlier this year claimed that she has a large gay following because she also “fought for the right to be herself”.

Last month she laughed off lesbian rumours as she renewed her wedding vows.

Dolly Parton’s new album Pure & Simple will be released by Dolly Records/ Sony Music on August 19.
