The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
I thank God for my failures. Maybe not at the time but after some reflection. I never feel like a failure just because something I tried has failed.
Dollywood is a family park, and all families are welcome. We do have a policy about profanity or controversial messages on clothing or signs. It is to protect the individual wearing or carrying them, as well as to keep down fights or problems by those opposed to it at the park.
'9 to 5 the Musical' is perfect for anyone that's ever wanted to string up their boss, which is almost all of us.
I grew up around lots of men - my father, my brothers, my uncles - so I wasn't intimidated by them.
We're all just a bunch of sinners, but we do the best we can.
I've always kinda been a little outcast myself, a little oddball, doin' my thing, my own way. And it's been hard for me to, to be accepted, certainly in the early years of my life.
I hated school. Even to this day, when I see a school bus it's just depressing to me. The poor little kids.
I'm an energy vampire. I just suck off everybody's energy. But I give it back.
I'd love to do a duet, always wanted to work with Madonna, but she never asked.
My songs are the door to every dream I've ever had and every success I've ever achieved.
When I'm home, I spend Sunday with my husband. If we're not cooking, we travel around in our camper, stop at fast-food restaurants, and picnic. We love that stuff that will harden your arteries in a hurry.
You gotta keep trying to find your niche and trying to fit into whatever slot that's left for you or to make one of your own.
If you like good ol' fashion Southern soul food then, yes, I am a good cook! My specialty is chicken dumplings and poke salad.
Adjusting to the passage of time, I think, is a key to success and to life: just being able to roll with the punches.
I want to go and go, and then drop dead in the middle of something I'm loving to do. And if that doesn't happen, if I wind up sitting in a wheelchair, at least I'll have my high heels on.
If I hadn't been a woman, I'd be a drag queen for sure. I like all that flair and I'd be dressing up in them high heels and putting on the big hair. I'd be like Ru Paul.
The only way I'd be caught without makeup is if my radio fell in the bathtub while I was taking a bath and electrocuted me and I was in between makeup at home. I hope my husband would slap a little lipstick on me before he took me to the morgue.
I've used my femininity and my sexuality as a weapon and a tool... but that's just natural.
It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.
