Dolly Parton, the Queen of Nashville, has taken to Facebook
to insist she has not endorsed Hillary Clinton, despite numerous media reports.
In a recent New York Times interview, the buxom blonde country star said she thought a woman could make a good president and she would "certainly be behind" Hillary Clinton if the presumptive Democratic nominee wins in November.
That nod to Clinton was quickly taken as an endorsement by numerous news organizations, and Parton quickly moved to quash it.
"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," Parton said.
She then lightened up, delving into the witty humor she's famous for.
"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," Parton quipped.
"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."
Last year, Clinton, who is also a fan of Parton, took to Twitter and posted a photo
from 1995 of herself dressed as Parton at her birthday party.
When Parton saw the snapshot, she responded to the Times Free Press
: "I should sign this photo and mail it to Donald Trump … Hillary looks a lot like me here except she needs bigger boobs for the exact look."
Parton's fans cross a broad spectrum from ultra-liberal Democrats to right-wing conservatives.
Once, when Fox News's Bill O'Reilly asked her if she was conservative, she said no, that she was "more patriotic than political,"according to the celebrity website Hollowverse.
She is adamant about one hot-button issue, though — and supports the rights of gays and lesbians to enter into same-sex marriages.
Parton has also touched on feminism too, with her lyrics about working women in the smash hit "9 to 5.″
The 70-year-old performer, who's also starred in films like "Steel Magnolias" and "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas," is now on a 60-city tour through the U.S. and Canada, belting out such favorites as "Jolene and "Here You Come Again."
