Country legend Dolly Parton says she isn’t “everything” and said it makes her “flinch” when she sees people pedestal celebrities and “worship them more than they worship God”.
Speaking to People magazine after she was named People of the Year, she said, “I have to honestly tell you, I was a little skeptical about getting on the cover as one of the People of the Year.”
“Because that creates a lot of pressure. But yeah, it’s like I’m not all of that. I am glad that I stand for enough things not to be the worst person in the world. But I don’t want to be worshiped because there is a scripture in my Bible that talks about idol worship, ”said Dolly Parton.
“And I see that all the time with movie stars and these celebrities. People literally worship them more than they worship God. And I just – I shrink from it sometimes. “
However, she is h -py to inspire people through her own actions, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Dolly Parton added, “But if I can lead by example, that’s great.”
The 75-year-old singer donated $ 1 million to Vanderbilt University late last year to fund research for the Moderna vaccine.
Dolly Parton said, “I am addicted to the feeling of giving. To know that I’m doing something good for someone else. “
And when it comes to her business, Parton said she was open to getting the right people on board to fix her own shortcomings.
