On Oct. 21, Dolly Parton appeared on “The Queen Latifah Show” to rap about “Duck Dynasty,” Honey Boo Boo, and even Miley Cyrus. She also poked fun at herself and Queen Latifah, her friend and co-star from the movie “Joyful Noise.” Dolly’s rap song was so popular that it was featured on “ET.”
On Monday night, host Rob Marciano stated on air, “That is a sight I thought I’d never see – Dolly Parton poking fun at Miley Cyrus!” He also pointed out that Dolly Parton has appeared dozens of times on “Entertainment Tonight” and always makes jokes at her own expense.
Dressed in all black and looking “hood” with tight leather pants and a frizzy, blond afro, Dolly Parton said of Queen Latifah, “She’s the queen of her own hood, but I’m the queen of Dollywood!” She went on to rap that she’s the white trash princess, along with Honey Boo Boo.
Dolly also rapped a shout out to Miley Cyrus by singing, “I’m working, I’m tweerking. Hey Miley, I’ve got your wrecking balls right here!” The country music superstar called herself and “Duck Dynasty” the redneck mafia and warned people not to mess with them.
Miley Cyrus is actually Dolly’s goddaughter, so the entire rap was tongue-in-cheek, innocent fun. In fact, Parton did quite a good job, much to the delight of the studio and at-home TV audiences. The video of Dolly Parton’s complete rap song for Queen Latifah has already been viewed more than 1 million times on YouTube. To see it, be sure to check out the video above and to the left.
“The LA Times" posted Dolly Parton’s rap online and wrote, “Parton has parodied herself for our entertainment and it’s only right we share it with the world.”
