“I want to thank the Tennessee legislature for their consideration of a bill to erect a statue of me on the Capitol grounds. I am honored and humbled by their intention but I have asked the leaders of the state legislature to remove the bill from any and all consideration,” she revealed.

“Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time. I hope, though, that somewhere down the road several years from now or perhaps after I’m gone if you still feel I deserve it, then I’m certain I will stand proud in our great State Capitol as a grateful Tennessean. In the meantime, I’ll continue to try and do good work to make this great state proud.”

Dolly Parton Explains Why She Hasn't Gotten the Coronavirus Vaccine Yet

Dolly Parton is holding off just a little longer until she gets the COVID-19 vaccine.

During a new interview, the 75-year-old entertainer – who donated $1 million to coronavirus vaccine research at the start of the pandemic – explained why she hasn’t gotten the vaccine yet.

“I’m not going to get mine until some more people get theirs. I don’t want it to look like I’m jumping the line just because I donated money,” Dolly explained to The Associated Press. “I’m very funny about that. I’m going to get mine though, but I’m going to wait.”

“I’m at the age where I could have gotten mine legally last week,” Dolly continued. “I turned 75. I was going to do it on my birthday, and I thought, ‘Nah, don’t do that. You’ll look like you’re just doing a show.’ None of my work is really like that.”

Dolly then reassured that she is definitely “going to get” the vaccine, and that she wants to encourage others to get it too.

“When I get it, I’ll probably do it on camera so people will know and I’ll tell them the truth, if I have symptoms and all that,” Dolly said. “Hopefully it’ll encourage people. I’m not going to jump the line just because I could.”

During another recent interview, Dolly Parton revealed she turned down receiving Presidential Medal of Freedom two separate times.
