Dolly Parton Rapping For Queen Latifah Is Pretty Wonderful

We're of the mind that Dolly Parton, the woman who brought us "Jolene," "I Will Always Love You," and "Islands In The Stream," can do no wrong, and we love that she always seems out to have fun. Dolly is the reigning queen of camp — the woman owns her own amusement park, lest you forget — and she's always full of surprises.
Case in point: Rather than sing one of her classic country tunes during her Friday appearance on The Queen Latifah Show, Dolly chose to rap. And, not just any ol' rap, but a custom number about one of her best assets — her very own "wrecking balls."

A sample lyric? "I don't hip and I don't hop / I'd black both eyes with this big top / I know the queen has got 'em too / but she don't work 'em like I do." She even manages to get a boob-related dig in at Miley Cyrus: "Whoo / look at them go I'm twerking them / I'm working them / Hey Miley, I have your wrecking balls right here," she rap-rhymed, while motioning to her oversized knockers.
Is Dolly Parton a great rapper? Not exactly. But then, she's not trying to be. Dolly's just being Dolly — out for a giggle and a good time. And, we'd sure love to join her.
