The 70-year-old performer disclosed so many secrets during her interview with TODAY on Wednesday.
Dolly talked about her huge boobs and the cosmetic surgeries. She also explained what happened when she was “caught” by paparazzi after her first procedure, and revealing a little more about her new tour “Pure & Simple.”
In response to a question about her pre-show ritual, Parton reveals without shame, “Well I pray and pee in that order.”
The certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum recording artist said that her tours are like a family reunion, claiming she “never meets a stranger.”
“When I grow up I’m going to be a big star. If I can hold God’s attention, I can hold the whole world!” she is quoted saying in her movie “Coat of Many Colors.
” The true-life storytelling provided an unforgettable message of how faith and love is very instrumental in her life.
“[On childhood memories] I keep all that stuff very close to my heart. I grew up knowing that Jesus loves me. And I knew that through God all things were possible. I grew up with those things that we just heard all the time. My grandfather was a really good preacher,” Parton told CBN.

Reports confirm Parton’s grandfather was a pastor and his hellfire and brimstone preaching is why she wrote the song, “Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man.”
“It was about him, about my grandpa. One of the lines is he preached hell so hot, you could feel the heat,” she explained.
She says her 1974 hit song “I Will Always Love You” was also divinely inspired, noting that God gave her the lyrics because they did not come from her.
“People say, ‘Well, I am surprised that you talk about your faith,’ and I say, ‘Why not? That’s who I am. That’s what keeps me going,'” the Nashville resident maintained.
“Any time I write something that is just a line that I know didn’t come from me, I just sort of say, ‘Hey, give me a high five, Lord. Give me a thumbs up.'”
