Dolly Parton tells critics who think she lip-synced at a British music festival: “My boobs are fake, my hair’s fake, but what is real is my voice and my heart.”
Parton spoke to the Sun about suspicions that she was “miming” — British-ese for lip syncing — at the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend.
“Oh, Dolly is miming,” Sky news anchorwoman Kay Burley tweeted of the performance. “How disappointing.”
Several UK supporters staunchly defended Dolly, including comedian Stephen Fry.
“Why are people saying Dolly Parton is miming?” he tweeted. “She’s fooling me…”
“That’s not miming,” he added. “If it appears not always to lip-sync that’s an HD live processor issue. You see it with reporters.”
