Dolly Parton is clarifying comments taken out of context during a recent interview that included a question about the 2016 presidential election. Yesterday (Tuesday, July 5th), Dolly said: “This morning while I was watching the news I saw many reports that I had endorsed Hillary Clinton. My comment about supporting a woman in the White House was taken out of context. I have not endorsed Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump. I try not to get political but if I am, I might as well just run myself ’cause I’ve got the hair for it, it’s huge, and they could always use more boobs in the race. But seriously, I have not decided who I’m voting for, but no matter what we’re gonna be suffering from PMS, Presidential Mood Swings.”
Dolly will begin the second leg of her Pure & Simple North American tour on July 19th in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Her new album, also called Pure & Simple, is set for release this summer.
