Dolly Parton entered a Dolly Parton lookalike contest, but lost to a drag queen

    Dolly Parton once entered anonymously into a "Dolly Parton lookalike contest", but lost to a drag queen.

    She's one of the most famous and recognizable country singers of all time, but Dolly Parton has openly admitted that even she lost in a Dolly Parton lookalike contest that was held in Santa Monica years ago.

    "Lots of drag queens dress up on Halloween like Dolly, and that was back when everybody was dressing like Cher or like me. So I thought how fun would this be?" Dolly is quoted as saying.

    "I just kind of over-exaggerated everything I am—bigger hair, bigger beauty mark, bigger boobs, if you can imagine."

    Parton stands at barely over 5 ft tall without heels, and she says that she was the smallest contestant there.

    "Here all these big drag queens are at least 6 feet tall with their high heels,"

    "I was kind of lost in the shuffle. They didn't take me serious at all."

    Despite all this, she ended up in second place. Whoever came first must have been pretty darn convincing!
