Britain's Got Talent postponed until next year
Can't they just make it 100% dog acts? Or single performers, I guess.

Who had the popularity of sea shanties down as an effect of a global pandemic? They didn't mention that in Contagion

Dolly Parton seems like one of the better celebrities generally. D'Angelo Wallace made an interesting video on how decent Dolly is recently.

  The 9 to 5 singer is the latest star to promote coronavirus vaccinations.   

Should at least take afternoons off

She renamed something in her park from Dixie Stampede to Dolly Parton's Stampede in 2018, and did it with good grace and humility. Hardly the mark of a vile racist.

In an interview with Billboard, the singer-songwriter also voiced her support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and addressed the wave of anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests that occurred in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.

“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” Parton said. “Of course, Black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”

Back in 2018, the artist, who is known for hits including “Jolene” and “9 to 5”, renamed the Civil War-themed attraction from “Dixie Stampede” to “Dolly Parton’s Stampede”.

“When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I thought, ‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede,” she said. “As soon as you realise that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumbass. That’s where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”

I've never had any strong feelings about her either way, I know she's very business orientated. But she doesn't seem like an awful racist.

never said she was. but a civil war themed attraction is dodgy as fuck. anyway, I just think she's a ruthless capitalist, so I don't quite understand all the praise.

probably not best to "stan" her but she does try her best as a millionaire. she also just told Tennessee not to put up a statue of her while she's a alive which says something

also she wrote Jolene and I Will Always Love you in the same afternoon. I mean when inspiration strikes and all that
